BJMP chief, 6 others charged with plunder

8

Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) chief Diony Mamaril and six jail officials are facing plunder charges at the Office of the Ombudsman for allegedly acquiring ill-gotten wealth through a series of overt criminal acts in “raiding the public treasury.”

Besides Mamaril, also named respondents were Chief Supt. Alfredo Soliba, chief Directorate for Comptrollership; Budget Office chief Mila Comia; Senior Supt. Arnulfo Obias, former Region 3 director; Sr. Insp. Jaime Bumactao, former disbursing officer for Region 3; Lorna Capili, budget officer (Region 3) and Insp. Gilbert Marpuri Jr., accountant (Region 3).

The case stemmed from a complaint filed by J/Insp. Angelina Bautista, who is presently assigned at the Valenzuela City Jail. Bautista claimed that Mamaril and the other jail officials connived in amassing at least P50 million through misappropriation, conversion and misuse of public funds.

Bautista said the officials used the “transition period” for the transfer of all provincial jails to the BJMP in raiding the public treasury. She cited the case of Bataan which turned over the jail supervision to the BJMP through a memorandum of agreement dated August 18, 2010.

Under the MOA, the provincial government appropriated funds for the subsistence of the inmates and for the payment of electric bills and water supply during the transition period. However, the BJMP still appropriated and released funds for the Bataan jail.

“They made it appear that BJMP itself paid for the subsistence of the inmates when in truth and in fact, said government expense was already paid or shouldered by the Provincial Government of Bataan,” Bautista said.

Obias denied the accusation saying that all funds released under him were accounted for.

“Pinakain natin lahat yan sa mga inmates at accounted naman yan,” he told The Manila Times. Mamaril could not be reached for comment.

  4. ganito ang corruption jan sa bjmp yung subsistnce allowance ng inmates 50% goes to the warden…magbigay sa rd. magkano na lang maiwan para sa inmates so yung 50 pesos per inmate/day almost kainin ng ofical at yung mga inmates na mamayaman bibili ng sariling pagkain yung di makakaya iba donations ..yung RD naman magbigay kay mamaril per month.. meron pa kota c mamaril sa mga big jails directly from the wardens..next yung jail population is misdeclared meaning inbest na 100 declared 120 ganun. jas imagine yung nationwide budget ng inmates ilan and declared ? kaya dapat lang na makulong mga magnanakaw na oficals na yan..

  5. Kahit saang jail ka pumunta automatic may corruption jan. Mga wardens at regional directors malaki ang kita. Kawawa naman iyong mga front liners na mababa na ang ranggo eh overworked pa. Di lang napapansin yang malalaki kung kumita dahil tahimik lang ang ahensya na yan. Low profile. PNP kc ang laging pinapansin ng publiko.

  6. Dapat alamin ng Manila Times newspaper researcher ang pagkatao ng Bautista na yan… Ang impormasyon mula sa mga kabaro niya wala man lang sa qualifications ng paging jail guard.
