THE Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) has kicked out of their organization “anti-corruption crusader” Pyra Lucas.
In its Board Resolution No. 3 issued recently, the VACC has “expelled and removed (Pyra) as member and as Central Luzon (Region 3) coordinator.”
The resolution added that Lucas “is prohibited, banned and barred from representing herself as member and regional coordinator of the organization from using and invoking VACC in any and all her activities or endeavors, and from acting and representing in behalf of the organization, its officers and members.”
Lucas was given a copy of the Board Resolution in a transmittal letter signed by no less than VACC president Arsenio “Boy” Evangelista and VACC chairman Socorro “Cory” Quirino. It was certified on April 4, 2019 by VACC Secretary Manjinder Kumar.
The expulsion and ban stemmed from a complaint filed with VACC by spouses Paul and Erlinda Santos who claimed that Lucas had offered her services for P2.2 million to “facilitate the favorable and expeditious disposition of the Petition for Review filed by their son, Rurik Earl, before the DOJ for rape.”
Lucas had received P1.2 million, which was given to her in three installments on July 24, August 22 and September 11, 2017. Lucas, however, failed to deliver.
“PYRA LUCAS has failed to return the money she received from the SPS SANTOS and has put the organization in bad light,” the VACC resolution stated. (PR)
