LEGAZPI CITY (Apr 20) – Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Martin Delgra removed LTFRB Regional Director Jun Abrazaldo and installed retired Police Sr. Supt. Vladimir Casper Kahulugan as new Bicol LTFRB Chief.

In his speech during the installation ceremony, Delgra said that Abrazaldo failed to comply with his commitment to follow the directives of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte against corruption. "I have received numerous complaints about corruption in LTFRB-Bicol and Abrazaldo was given a chance, we have a one-on-one talk, but nothing happened”, said Delgra. However, Delgra refused to give details on the alleged corruption issues against Abrazaldo.

He said that the very basic policy on franchise has been violated and pointed out that the franchise is free. Delgra said that since there is no turn-over of records, he ordered Dir. Kahulugan to conduct an audit from the time Abrazaldo took the helm of LTFRB-Bicol up to the present.

Dir. Kahulugan also appealed to the public to help him serve the Bicolanos 24/7. He said that he is available anytime, and anywhere to attend to any concern relative to his functions to serve the riding public.

In an earlier interview, Abrazaldo accused Delgra of harassment despite of his relentless campaign against colorum buses, vans and public utility jeepneys. He said that he was not given due process.  (Mar de la Cruz with reports from Luence Burce Barcena)
