Marañon said he has always been in favor of nuclear power plants.moremoremore

Accused of malversation of public funds, attempted bribery, and violation of the anti-graft and corrupt practices act by Guintorilan barangay captain Joel Samera, Gomez said she is ready with her counter-affidavit although she has yet to receive an official copy of the complaint.

In his complaint, Samera said the vice mayor violated the law when she failed to account for construction materials worth P20, 255 intended for a project in Brgyu. Guintorilan.moremoremore
