The driver of Baliwasan Barangay Council who is accused of raping a 22 year old woman has already been committed to the Zamboanga City Jail.

A police report showed that Basser Hadain y Sali, 41, married, is now detained at City Reformatory Center (City Jail) following a commitment order issued by Judge Shaldilyn Bangsaja dated September 4, 2017 for the crime of rape defined and penalized under article 266-A(1) of the Revised Penal Code as amended by R.A. 8353 (anti rape law).

It can be recalled that on August 22, Hadain was arrested by no less than Baliwasan Barangay Chairwoman Aimie Cabato for allegedly raping an epileptic woman inside the barangay office.

The victim has temporarily sought refuge at the barangay hall after she left home.

Hadain will remain in detention while awaiting for his trial in court since rape is non- bailable. – Dan Toribio
