Column: Another teen rape victim in Surigao del Norte

A 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by the mayor of a town in Surigao del Norte.

The journal of the regional investigation and detective management division of Police Regional Office 13 said the mayor was charged with rape in relation to the Anti-Child Abuse Law.

The identity of the victim was withheld because she is a minor.

If the mayor were an ordinary suspect, the police would have arrested him first, and then filed charges against him later.

That is compartmentalized justice. (Ramon Tulfo, ON TARGET -
