Capitol official faces complaints over SALN

PROVINCIAL Accountant Ramon Dumayac Jr. is facing a complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman-Visayas for his alleged failure to submit his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN) from 2004 to 2015.

Former Capitol consultant on security and jail matters Byron Garcia said he filed against Dumayac 11 counts for violations of Republic Act 3019, or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, and 11 counts for violations of Section 8 of Republic Act 6713, or Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

The complaint is dated April 11, 2018.

Garcia also filed another complaint against Dumayac for allegedly failing to divulge his actual business interests in his SALN, and his investments worth P1 million with the Cebu CFI Community Cooperative (CFI), a qualification for being a member of the board of directors.

Dumayac refused to comment on the issue, saying he doesn’t have a copy of the complaint yet.

“Wa mi mag-away ana niya, ambot unsay nasud sa iyang ulo. Ako, natinga gani ko nganong naay complaint (We don’t have a fight. I don’t know what got into his head in filing these complaints),” Dumayac said.

Garcia said Dumayac made it appear that he has no financial connection or interest with CFI when the truth is that from 2016 up to the present, he is a member of its board and a director of the Cooperative Bank of Cebu.

Garcia also filed administrative cases against Dumayac for grave misconduct, abuse of authority, dishonesty, conduct unbecoming of a public official and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of service.

Last March 19, Garcia asked for a copy of Dumayac’s SALN from 2004 to 2018.

But Sarah Jo Vergara, officer-in-charge of the central records management office of Vthe isayas Ombudsman, said they only found Dumayac’s certified 2016 SALN, where his business interests were not included.

Byron said it is clear that there conflic of interest in Dumayac’s being a provincial accountant and his being a provincial accountant of the Cebu CFI Community Cooperative. (SCG)
