Controversies
• Jueteng involvement
• In December 2012, Governor Amado Espino was accused of
receiving bribes from jueteng operators in Pangasinan amounting
to P10 million per month. Espino believes that is political smearing
against him by Alaminos Mayor Nani Braganza, his opponent in the
election.[2]
• Jueteng is an illegal numbers game in the Philippines.
Allegation of drug trafficking
• In August 2016, Congressman Amado Espino was identified as one of six
government officials accused of illegal drug operations at the New Bilibid
Prison. The drug matrix released by the government also linked Espino
to illegal mining operations in Pangasinan.[3] On September 27, 2016,
President Duterte cleared Espino of the charges relating to the illegal
drug trade, publicly apologized to him for the lapse in the validation of the
intelligence report, but maintained that the charges of illegal mining
against him and Pangasinan Administrator Rafael Baraan remain valid as
the Sandiganbayan has already decided on the case. He later decided to
leave his old party and joined PDP–Laban.
Black sand mining
• On September 8, 2016, the Sandiganbayan ordered a 90-day
suspension for Espino as Congressman of Pangasinan due to
alleged black sand mining in the province.
