A copy of a Sandiganbayan Fifth Division resolution dated February 8, denying a motion for reconsideration of Mayor Alvarez to a 90-day suspension it ordered on Sept. 21, 2012, was furnished the DAILY STAR Sunday by Philip Arles, son of slain Judge Henry Arles, who is running for congressman of the sixth district of Negros Occidental.
