The batch, which is composed of 8 commissioned and 20 non-commissioned officers, allegedly received drug money from suspected Cebuano drug lord Franz Sabalones.

The Police Regional Office (PRO 7) has received the order from Camp Crame and the policemen may be assigned to the head office or to other regions, especially in Mindanao and Cordillera, said Senior Supt. Renato Dugan, chief of the Regional Personnel and Human Resource Development Division of PRO 7.

From July to October of this year, a total of 123 policemen from the region have already been relieved and transferred to Cordillera, ARMM, and other parts of Mindanao.

Dugan assured that Cebuanos and residents in other parts of Central Visayas should not be alarmed because police operations in the region remain normal.
