The judge ordered the five to jointly pay the heirs of their victim, Michael Adelantar, P75,000 as indemnity for his death, P75,000 in moral damages, P50,000 in exemplary damages and P277,000 in funeral expenses without subsidiary imprisonment in case of insolvency.
not final – Ramos
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Marichi Ramos yesterday said she is still a director of the Bacolod City Water District since the decision of the Court is not yet final and executory.
This was her reaction to the decision of the Regional Trial Court ordering her ouster as member of the Baciwa Board of Directors, representing the professional sector, and declaring Ramiro Garcia Jr. as the duly appointed member.
Garcia had filed a petition for quo warranto against Ramos on August 20 asking the Court to declare her not entitled to sit as member of the Baciwa Board representing the professional sector, ousting her from the position, and to declare him as the person entitled to be a member of the Baciwa Board.
