Osmeña has accused the police of being behind the strafing incident

A PRIVATE resident has documented a grumbling against Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña for grave offense, lead unbecoming of an open authority and disregard of obligation after he found the city hall leader playing poker inside an illicit betting spot prior in the year. 

Complainant Conrado Romano said he risked upon the civic chairman betting at the House of Jacks inside Ralph's Wines and Spirits in Barangay Kamputhaw on three events last January. 

The civic chairman, as far as concerns him, was courageous by the protest. 

"I will answer all... that is typical. They generally think of things. I'm going to kick the bucket, I'm this way, I'm that way. I've never been indicted by the Ombudsman. Never," Osmeña said. 

"They have recorded twelve of bodies of evidence against me and I'll give my legal advisors a chance to deal with that," he included. 

The poker house was struck by individuals from the City Mobile Force Company last Jan. 30 after the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. grumbled that it was working without a permit. 

Amid the task, 19 people were captured, including the foundation's associate chief, Precy Impas. 

Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) Director Royina Garma had gotten data that a portion of the poker players were high-positioning city authorities. 

Garma's proof 

"Truly, we were informed that open authorities, chose authorities and furthermore government representatives were visit visitors. I truly needed to approve the data yet when we led the task, we were not ready to get a duplicate of the CCTV (shut circuit TV) on the grounds that there was no chronicle," the police official said last Feb. 1. 

Garma had the capacity to verify a recording of one city official entering the spot, however the CCPO didn't have proof that he bet inside. 

With respect to the complainant, he demonstrated photographs of the civic chairman joined by his child Miguel and a security officer from the City Hall inside the foundation. 

"The photos I took while Mayor Tomas Osmeña was playing was done in the primary seven day stretch of January where I was welcomed by a companion to go with him to the spot and amazingly, I saw the dad of the city who was betting, which I accept (is) an infringement under the moral standard of government official and different laws disallowing chose authorities from participating in betting," Romano said in his letter to the counter join office. 

The Department of the Interior and Local Government Memorandum Circular (MC) 2017-20 charges all neighborhood government authorities and workers to carefully watch and conform to disallowances against entering, staying as well as playing at betting club. 

"No political inspiration" 

In a meeting with Superbalita Cebu, Romano said he could never again recall accurate dates he discovered the civic chairman playing poker. He conceded that he used to visit the poker house to bet. 

On one event, he said he and his companions were dismissed in light of the fact that VIPs (Very Important Persons) were inside. He said he was shocked when he got a quick look at the civic chairman playing poker in one of the rooms. 

On another event, he said he was approached to leave in light of the fact that the foundation was anticipating VIPs (Very Important Persons). 

"I was remaining by the clerk when the VIP arrived and it ended up being the city hall leader. That was the reason we couldn't play in light of the fact that the city hall leader was going to play," Romano said in Cebuano. 

Romano said he took the photographs utilizing his cellphone. He kept the photos until he chose to record an objection against Osmeña before the Ombudsman. 

Romano said he is an occupant of Urgello St. in Barangay Sambag 1 and that he is a businessperson occupied with purchase and sell. He denied his thought process in documenting the grievance was political. 

Then, the "Pulihi Na, Cebu!" development commended Romano for his activities. 

In a press explanation, the gathering said this was not the first run through Osmeña was associated with unlawful exercises. A month ago, the city hall leader was labeled as the "defender" of the unlawful butane business in the city, it said. 

As indicated by the gathering, depictions of the city hall leader betting inside an unlawful poker house just make their development more grounded in light of the fact that the photographs demonstrate that Cebu City merits better. 

"Is this the picture of a decent open authority? In this way, is this where our charges go?" the gathering said. 

In November 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte issued MC 06 forbidding open authorities against entering betting gambling clubs.
