ruling vs.17 Silay officials

The June 25 decision of the CA signed by Executive Justice Pampio Abarintos, a copy of which was furnished the media yesterday, also reversed the Aug. 3, 2010 decision of the Ombudsman stating that the 17 had committed conduct prejudicial to public service.

The Ombudsman’s decision was based on a complaint filed by Silay residents Jose Lindy Chan and Jojo Sumiller against the 17 for the alleged anomalous P18 million computerization project of the Silay City government.moremoremore
