Sandiganbayan suspends
vice mayor of Guihulngan

The Department of Interior and Local Government in Negros Oriental confirmed the suspension for 90 days of Guihulngan Vice Mayor Ernesto Reyes as a result of the graft case filed against him and members of the Bids and Awards Committee, who were earlier dismissed from the service, following a decision from the Ombudsman.

DILG OIC provincial director Dennis Quinones confirmed the issuance of the suspension order yesterday while attending a conference of all DILG provincial directors in Manila. He said that on Friday, Reyes came to the DILG provincial office at the Capitol in Dumaguete City, to preempt the implementation of the suspension order from the Sandiganbayan.

He said they received the order last week and was about to proceed to Guihulngan City to implement the order, but Reyes, who may have advance information, did not wait for the DILG team to come to the city.moremoremore
