3 nabbed at gov’t center
for ‘taking grease money’


Two employees of the Office of the Building Official in Bacolod City and a civilian were nabbed by National Bureau of Investigation agents in an entrapment operation at the Bacolod City Government Center yesterday.

OBO electrical inspector Peter Plantillo, John Navales, a job order casual of OBO, and Gilbert Martinez, who is reportedly applying for a job at the city government, were arrested by the NBI after they received P1,600 in marked money at about 2 p.m. outside the OBO office.

NBI Investigator Syrus Aluzan yesterday said two private electrical contractors had complained to them that before their applications for permit could be acted upon, certain employees of the OBO ask for P100 as “grease money” per applicant.moremoremore
