The matrix says Bucayo was “designated as PNP RD PRO 1 thru the help of De Lima.”
“After retirement, he was appointed as BUCOR chief,” the matrix said. “Resigned as Chief because of alleged involvement [in] illegal drugs inside BUCOR.”
BUCOR stands for Bureau of Corrections.
An arrow connects Undersecretary Baraan with his brother, Pangasinan City Administrator Raffy Baraan, who is connected with Espino, described in the matrix as the “richest politician in Northern Luzon,” and another arrow with Bucayo.
According to the matrix, Espino used Raffy Baraan as cover for his alleged illegal activities. Espino has been charged with plunder for illegal mining case.
Both Espino and Baraan were involved in black sand mining in Pangasinan.
