Cancel arraignment,
Monico asks


Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella, through his counsel, has filed an omnibus motion asking the Sandiganbayan 4 th   Division to cancel and defer the arraignment of his case set on April 15, for the questionable purchase of the Information Technology package worth about P26 million, from his Priority Development Assistance Fund when he was yet congressman of Bacolod City.

Puentevella's motion said that the City of Bacolod is hosting the 2015 National Assessors meeting on April 14 to 17, and he was requested to deliver the opening remarks on April 15, in the program to welcome the participants coming from all over the country. It said he had already committed to deliver the opening remarks.

The omnibus motion filed by Puentevella's lawyers Redemptor Peig and Ralph Sarmiento prayed that resolution of the court dated March 13, be reconsidered and set aside and that his arraignment be cancelled and deferred until after the Supreme Court has resolved his petition for certiorari in SC-G.R. SP. No. 210696.moremoremore

Guv's clearance needed
before appearing at SP

Provincial Legal Officer Richard Inojo said the order of Gov. Roel Degamo not to allow department heads or any employee of the provincial government to appear before the session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan without a clearance could be understood as a gag order because of bad experiences in the past.

Under the law, any public official or private person could be summoned to appear before a legislative body in aid of legislation, but Inojo claimed that the provincial government had realized that in several instances where employees are invited and grilled during regular sessions, he had not known of any legislation resulting from it..moremoremore
