NEGROS Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. said Thursday that he has not received yet an official copy of the plunder complaint filed against him and Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena.
Maraon said the issue on the so-called plunder is an old issue that was already hurled against them even before the May 2013 election.
Decena’s lawyer Roger Reyes filed the complaint before the Office of the Ombudsman-Visayas regarding the alleged overpriced purchase of imported sheep and cattle by Marañon and Decena.
Meanwhile, Marañon said the P20,000 incentive bonus for each Capitol employee will be released within the month.
The additional bonus will be given since the province received numerous awards from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The governor said the province is just waiting for the promulgation of the court on the case filed by SM Prime Holdings Inc. against the Provincial Government related to its 7.7-hectare property deal with Ayala Land Inc.
The Commission on Audit (COA) already dismissed the motion for reconsideration filed by SM Prime against the approval of the deed of conditional sale and contract of lease between the Provincial Government and Ayala Land for lack of merit.
