One of the ledgers recovered by Ozamis City police during the raid that killed Mayor Reynaldo Parohinog and twelve other people, says that the Parohinog family has donated at least ₱26 million in the campaign of former Interior Secretary mar Roxas, and his running mate, Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo.
P/Supt Ernesto Macabebe, Ozamis City acting Police Chief said that the ledger was inspected by forensic experts and found out that since August 2015, Reynaldo Parohinog had started donating to the Roxas campaign.
“Makikita naman po natin ano. Na starting August 2015 pa, nagsimula nang magdonate itong si Reynaldo Parohinog sa sa Liberal party, especially sa campaign ni Mar Roxas”, Macabebe told local reporters while holding the ledger on Tuesday.
The police officer added that the late mayor used MR-LR codes specifically referring to Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo in several pages of his ledger.
From August 2015 until April 2016, Parohinog deposited at least 17 times to Liberal Party’s bank accounts as stated in his ledger.
Reynaldo Parohinog, his wife and brother along nine others were killed in simultaneous raids of their houses in the early hours on July 30, 2017.
Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog, the couple’s daughter, was also arrested and brought to the Ozamiz City police station.
Police said they found several kilos of shabu and guns from the six houses of the Parojinogs that were subject of the search.
Macabebe added that there are another twelve personalities listed on the ledger who received money from Parohinog as well. He said that they already identified the five and will reveal the names in proper time.
It is not clear how the revelation affects Robredo, but Macabebe said they are just doing their job to uncover the mystery behind Parohinog’s power and influence. /Joy Valle/
