Mayor suspended
but appeals ruling

Acting Ombudsman Orlando Casimiro has ordered the suspension of Hinobaan Mayor Ma. Teresa Bilbao and the town’s municipal administrator Jose Candulizas for two months and one day for simple dishonesty.

Bilbao yesterday maintained that they did not commit any wrongdoing and have filed a motion for reconsideration before  the Ombudsman.

She also pointed out that since she was reelected as mayor of Hinoba-an in 2010 after the complaint had been filed against her, she cannot be suspended under the Aguinaldo doctrine.moremoremore

raps vs. Sincere


A joint complaint for violation of Sections 155 and 170 of the Republic Act 8293 or the Intellectual property Code of the Philippines was filed by the National Bureau of Investigation and the United Laboratories Inc. against the management of Sincere Drug Store before the Department of Justice, Unilab External Affairs Officer Claire Papa told the DAILY STAR yesterday.

The charges were in connection with the raids conducted by NBI and Unilab on the branches of Sincere Drug Store at Burgos, Libertad, Dela Rama Center, Gatuslao, Centroplex and Gonzaga branches and at the warehouse in Purok Dawis in Brgy. 14 on June 16, for alleged sale of counterfeit medicines.

Ricky Enriquez, general manager of the Sincere chain of drug stores, said they are yet to comment on the charges filed against them by NBI and the Unilab group as they have not received subpoenas yet.moremoremore
