CIDG arrested ex-Governor Bong Calingin

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (MDN digital, May 9) – Operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) arrested former governor of Misamis Oriental Antonio "Bobong" Calingin on Thursday (May 9) in his hometown in Claveria, Misamis Oriental.

PNP 10 spokesman Surki Serenias told reporters that the arrest came based on a warrant issued by the 5th Division of Sandiganbayan. The former governor was reportedly arrested around 3:00 am. after he was confirmed to be living in one of his son's house in Kiabo, Claveria, a few kilometers from Malitbog town in Bukidnon province.

Serenias said there was a short commotion as the former governor resisted arrest but later he voluntarily surrendered himself. It was learned from police authorities that it took them several hours to execute the arrest as the subject went into hiding at the comfort room.

The graft court penned down the guilty verdict against Calingin for 90 up to 120 years of life imprisonment due to a Ticala housing project anomaly in which the former governor was found guilty of malversing Seven Million Pesos.
