6 fishers cleared of dynamite fishing
MetadataShow full item record
Six fishermen accused of dynamite fishing have been acquitted by a Dagupan court for lack of evidence. In an eight-page decision issued recently, Robert Pedeglorio, Jonathan Vidal, Eddie Ablog, Salvador Imbat, Jonathan Gonzales and Jimmy Rentar Jr. were declared not guilty by Presiding Judge Emma Torio of the Regional Trial Court Branch 41. Torio said the prosecution failed to present evidence against the accused, who were charged of engaging in dynamite fishing. Records showed the six were spotted on board a boat by personnel of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the Lingayen Gulf on July 16, 2012.
