“During the time of the investigation I am conducting, he (Albayalde) called me up, actually, and ang usapan (the conversation), ang naalala ko (as I remember) is that, ‘Sir, naimbestigahan niyo raw kami (Sir, I heard you are investigating us),” Lacadin told the Senate panel.

“‘If you have nothing to hide, wala naman kayong dapat katakutan (you have nothing to fear),” Lacadin recalled telling Albayalde.“And sabi niya, I don’t know if he’s joking, ‘Actually, Sir, kaunti lang naman ang napunta sa akin diyan (And then he said, I don’t know if he’s joking, ‘Actually, I only got a little from that),” he further recounted.

But Albayalde said it was “very unlikely” that he would say such things.“It’s very unlikely, alam niya ‘yan (he knows that). It’s very unlikely. Deputy siya ng (He’s the deputy of the) CIDG noon (that time), ni (of) Gen. Magalong, so you know the connection already,” he pointed out, referring to former CIDG chief and now Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong.

Magalong had earlier alleged that Albayalde intervened with the dismissal of his subordinates involved in the 2013 drug sting.ADVERTISEMENTThe 13 police officers were charged for allegedly mishandling the evidence confiscated from the 2013 anti-drug operation in Mexico town. /kga
