DOJ, DILG To Play Jack En Poy To Resolve Issue With Governor’s Murder Investigation

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Abalos or Remulla? Remulla or Abalos?

There seems to be confusion on who is the appropriate spokesperson for the ongoing investigation of the murder of of former Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo.

Both the Department of Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) Secretary Benhur Abalos and the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Secretary Crispin Remulla have been issuing public statements on the status of the said investigation.

While a governor is technically within the jurisdiction of DILG, crime investigations are clearly within the purview of DOJ.

But what/who gives?

Well, to resolve the issue, Abalos and Remulla agreed to play the game of jack en poy in order to resolve the conflict and the public’s confusion.

Stay tuned for the results!

For Baguio City Resident, 5 Years Still No National ID!

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – If there was a Guinness Record for the “Longest Man in Waiting for an ID,” Jake De Leon would win it hands down.

The Baguio City resident said he’s been waiting for his Philippine National ID for 5 years now. Others have been waiting for theirs for a year or two since the National ID law was signed in 2018 by then President Rodrigo Duterte. De Leon’s wait is unprecedented.

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with De Leon while he was shopping at SM Baguio Supermarket and we asked him when the exact date was when he turned in his National ID application.

His reply: “What application?”

Maharlika, FL Liza Marcos, Kiss And Make Up!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For days on end, Los Angeles-based Vlogger Bb. Maharlika has been criticizing Philippine First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos, even calling her “Mrs. President.”

But there is always a time to kiss and make up, which the two did today.

Posting a photo of her with Mrs. Marcos on her social media account (presumably taken during the 2022 presidential campaign when the Vlogger was hoping to be appointed to a powerful position in Malacañang), Maharlika said “all’s well that ends well,” adding that that “ Mrs. President and I have come to an acceptable financial compromise.”

The Adobo Chronicles could not verify or confirm what that financial compromise involves.

Stay tuned!
