Negros Occidental Provincial Legal Officer Jose Maria Valencia urged Capitol security guards who acquired fake training licenses to file charges against the syndicate that got money from them.

This, as Valencia warned that the provincial government will terminate its contract with IloBac Security Agency, whose security guards detailed at the Capitol building acquired the fake training licenses.

He said that Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. has ordered the termination of the province’s contract with the involved security agency.

“We don't understand why the guards acquired those fake security licenses when in fact they still have valid licenses," Valencia said.

Still, he said that they will give the security agency a chance to explain their side about the fake licenses.

Valencia, meanwhile, said the issue on fake guard licenses prompted them to appoint a chief for security who will be the over-all in charge of the security personnel detailed in all Provincial Capitol offices.

At present, various security agencies detail guards in different offices.

“Since Capitol has been dragged into the controversy, we are prompted to take appropriate measures to address the situation,” Valencia said.

Bidding among security agencies are conducted by the Capitol based on prescribed rate.
