OMBUDSMAN Conchita Carpio Morales has found probable cause to file graft charges against current and former local officials in different municipalities of Visayas in relation to the fertilizer fund scam.

Morales issued three separate resolutions on the criminal indictments of the local officials for violations of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices.

Those to be charged before the Sandiganbayan anti-graft court include former mayor Rose Marie Suezo of Tuburan, Cebu; Virgilia Undag, municipal accountant; Victoria Verano, municipal agricultural officer; Nicodemus Montecillo Jr., Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) chairman; Chito Armecin and Elsa Yosalina, both BAC members; and Marc Gulle, representative of Sikap-Yaman Foundation.

Also facing criminal indictments were Mayor Mariano Malones, mayor of Maasin, Iloilo; Cecilio Montefrio, municipal accountant; Jimmy Borra, officer-in-charge-accountant; and Jose Barredo Jr., representative of Feshan Philippines, Inc.

Others to be charged were Jeremias Ban, former barangay captain in Himamaylan City in Negros Occidental; his councillors, namely, Danilo Lamason, Raymund Vincent Besa, Manuel Tancinco, Nile Nelson Arroz, Adelino Plansa, and Jonalyn Lauron; Efren dela Rose, City accountant; and Jose Barredo Jr., representative of Feshan Phils., Inc.

Morales also ordered the dismissal from the service of Undag, Verano, Montecillo Jr., Armecin, Yosalina, Lauron and Dela Rosa after finding them guilty of serious dishonesty, grave misconduct, and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service.

The case stemmed from the unlawful disbursements of funds amounting to P291.2 million, which formed part of the P728 million fertilizer fund allocated for the implementation of the Farm Inputs and Farm Implements Program of the Department of Agriculture.

The subject fund was released to the DA by the Department of Budget and Management on February 3, 2004 under Notice of Cash Allocation No. 2222447-I. (SDR/Sunnex)
