LEGAZPI CITY, Albay – The court granted the motion to post bail filed by detained Daraga mayor Carlwyn “Awin” Baldo’s camp for the complaint of illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and explosive against him.
In the resolution issued by Hon. Judge Maria Theresa San Juan-Loquillano, RTC Branch 10, dated February 12, 2019, Baldo is allowed to post bail with the amount fixed to P3,000,000.00 for cash or P4,000,000.00 for surety of property.
Baldo is also ordered to refrain from talking about the case in his campaign sorties and media.
However, the processing of Baldo’s release order from payment of bail has not been completed before 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
Baldo is still detained at Legazpi City Police Station after he was discharged from the hospital last week.
He was arrested for illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and explosive during CIDG’s raid at his residence in Brgy. Tagas, Daraga, Albay.
Baldo is also being tagged by police as the mastermind in the killing of Ako Bicol Party-list Representative Rodel Batocabe.
