Court convicts Customs official for violation of the SALN law
30 October 2013 - press release Ombudsman

The Office of the Ombudsman successfully secured the conviction of a  ranking official of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) for failing to declare certain properties in her Statement of Assets, Liabilities and NetWorth (SALN) for the years 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.

 In an 11-page Decision, the Metropolitan Trial Court of Manila found Pier Angeli Senangote Sealtiel, Customs Operations Officer V, guilty beyond reasonable doubt of 10 counts of  violation of Sec. 8 of Republic Act (R.A.) 6713 (Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees) and sentenced her to pay a fine of P5,000 for each count.

 The case stemmed from Sealtiel’s non-disclosure in her SALNs two parcels of adjacent land and one apartment unit in Parañaque City registered in the name of her husband Leonilo and his siblings as co-owners.

 The Decision narrated that the previous title covering the said property was registered in the name of accused’s father-in-law Vedasto who died on March 30, 1983. Ownership of the said properties was transferred to Leonilo and his siblings following a Deed of Donation executed on March 24, 1994.
 In his Decision, Presiding Judge Juan Bermejo, Jr. stated that said “such issuance of Transfer Certificate Of Titles (TCTs) in the names of Leonilo Sealtiel and his siblings as registered co-owners, makes it incumbent upon accused Peior Angelie Senangote Sealtiel to disclose her husband’s interest over the subject properties beginning 1994, failing which, makes her liable for non-disclosure of her husband’s interest on the said properties.”

 The Court however acquitted Sealtiel on her act of non-disclosure of a Tagaytay property in her 1991 SALN stating that “that said property was subsequently titled on March 13, 1992 xxx thus, accused Pier Angeli Senangote Sealtiel cannot be faulted for not declaring the same in her 1991 SALN.”

 Sealtiel was similarly acquitted on her failure to declare in her 1993 SALN three parcels of land in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, as inheritance from her parents, considering that “there has been no settlement of the estate of their parents, nor any showing that the same has already been partitioned despite the demise of their ascendants.”

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
