The five (5) women crime fighters of the country’s Department of Justice (DOJ) composed of State Prosecutors Anjanette de Leon-Ortile, Marlette Balagtas, Amor Robles, Elizabeth Lacanilao-Berdal and Eden Wakay-Valdes – recently went whitewater rafting in Cagayan de Oro City.

The five were responsible for the conviction of drug suspects Amin Imam Boratong and second wife Sheryl Molera Boratong despite tremendous pressure over the past months while prosecuting the controversial case.
