No suspension order
received yet: Alvarez


Negros Occidental Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez Jr. yesterday said his son, Ilog Mayor John Paul Alvarez, has not received copies of the two Sandiganbayan resolutions ordering his suspension.

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.

The vice governor said he is wondering why Arles had a copy of the resolution while none had been sent to his son.

He also said that should his son receive the suspension order, it is no big deal to them, he will not complain, it will give him a vacation.

The suspension is in connection with a case filed against Alvarez and the eight Ilog employees before the Sandiganbayan for allegedly unlawfully repairing and replacing the motor engine of a Mitsubishi Pajero service vehicle of the Ilog Department of Education office.

The Ilog mayor, in his motion for reconsideration before the Sandiganbayan, said “the allegation of undue injury to the government of Ilog is clearly not true and this falsity renders the validity of the charges questionable.”

The vice governor said the case involved about P93,000 that is not a big amount and that his son had not malversed.*CPG
