The Davao del Norte Prosecution Office has dismissed charges of land grabbing filed against former Governor Rodolfo del Rosario Sr. and members of his family in connection with foreclosure of land used as collateral in loans secured from the Del Rosario-owned Century Rural Bank by small banana growers, according to reports in  Tagum City-based radio stations.

In filing the case, nearly one hundred farmers whose collateral were foreclosed were legally and financially assisted by former bus conductor Edwin Jubahib.

Jubahib is running for governor in the May 13 election under the banner of the Alvarez Wing of First District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez.

The political neophyte Jubahib, personal assistant of Alvarez, is up against Board Member Rodolfo “Rodney” del Rosario, Jr. in the race for governor. Alvarez’s reelection bid is being challenged by Governor Anthony del Rosario.

The governor and and his brother Rodney, sons of former Gov. del Rosario and among those charged, are running under the banner of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago, a regional political part formed by presidential daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

The alleged land grabbing is among black propaganda hurled at the Del Rosarios by Jubahib and Alvarez.

Gov. del Rosario said the accusation is recycled black propaganda leveled against the Del Rosarios during the election season.
