Richard filed the cases at the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) Building in Quezon City on November 16.
According to Gomez, the motivation behind his alleged drug involvement is clearly political.
He can’t help but lament over the fact that he has just been elected as Mayor of Ormoc, Leyte. He has just been sitting in office barely four months.
Richard beat the incumbent Mayor Edward Codilla during the May 2016 elections.
The actor turned politician said that he doesn’t feel good about it all. He also doesn’t want to have enemies.
He further mentioned that it’s a good thing that the law provides cases like his with remedies.
According to Gomez, the only benefit that his enemies would get is that comes the next election they would splatter his name all over Ormoc, citing an alleged drug involvement.
If he would not do something about it, people will say it’s true.
So, he said, he’s just fighting for his rights.
