Unliquidated cash advances
list includes two former guvs


Twelve elected officials of Negros Occidental, including two former governors, are among 304 who have unliquidated cash advances totaling P4,465,517 at the Capitol, provincial accountant Merly Fortu said yesterday.

The two former governors are Rafael Coscolluela and Isidro Zayco, who yesterday said they were unaware that they had unliquidated cash advances as they had not been informed about them.

Coscolluela, who was listed to have an unliquidated cash advance of 129,082 , said, “I don’t know about it, but it’s probably travel expenses. It is difficult to liquidate due to the time element.”moremoremore

Raps vs. Aquino won’t prosper


Government Service Insurance System chairman Daniel Lacson Jr. yesterday said a plunder case filed against President Benigno Aquino III and talk of impeachment will not prosper because they have no basis.

The peasant group Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas on Wednesday filed a plunder complaint before the Office of the Ombudsman against Aquino over the alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund.

“That is part of the usual reactions coming from certain groups, I don’t see any value in that,” Lacson said.moremoremore

Militants want
PNoy impeached


Bagong Alyansang Makabayan-Negros secretary general Christian Tuayon yesterday said their counterparts in different areas in the country are now collating evidence against President Benigno Aquino III.

Tuayon was reacting to the challenge of the President to his critics, who accused him of plundering the people’s money by misusing the Priority Development Assistance Fund, to impeach him if he is guilty of the charge.

The Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas Wednesday filed a plunder complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman against Aquino and several others, over the misuse of the PDAF.moremoremore
