MANILA, Philippines - Bugallon, Pangasinan Mayor Rodrigo Orduña admitted Monday that there is no paper trail linking Pangasinan Gov. Amado Espino Jr. to the proliferation of jueteng in the province.

Speaking to ANC, Orduña said another witness can attest to his claim that he personally delivered jueteng payola to Espino every week. He admitted that there is no documentary proof to prove his claims.

"Kung gusto niya ipakita ko kung saan kami nag-uusap dalawa e. Pwede naman yun," he said.

"Sa jueteng kasi, sabihin ng iba diyan na nagmamagaling na kailangan may ebidensya. E iligal ho yan. Lahat ng tatanggap diyan gagawa ng paraan na hanggang maaari walang maiiwang ebidensya lalo yung mga papel na yan. Hindi tatanggap ng tseke yan. Cash to cash lagi. Ang magpapatunay lang dito ako - ako mismo kumukuha ng pera sa kahero at dinadala ko mismo kay Governor Espino. Yun ang totoo," he added.
