Former Sultan Kudarat governor Pax Mangudadtu said he would have no qualms about seeing his son sent to jail if found guilty of rape, but said he should be given a chance in court to prove his innocence.
I will never tolerate a member of my family or my relatives to break the law. We, Muslims, are law abiding citizens. As a longtime government servant, I have already set the example that we should not commit crimes, said Mangudadatu, who is being groomed to run for the governorship in the coming Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in August.
This developed as Judge Emmanuel Carpio of Branch 16 in Davao City issued an arrest warrant against Datu Naga Mitra Mangudadatu, son of Mangudadatu, and an unidentified cousin for the alleged rape of a 20-year old nursing student in Davao City in August last year.
