• CA affirms dismissal of Nueva Ecija mayor


    THE Court of Appeals affirmed an Ombudsman decision dismissing a municipal mayor in Nueva Ecija from his post for designating his nephew to be the town’s planning and development officer. In a resolution penned by Associate Justice Maria Elisa Sempio Diy and concurred by Associate Justices Ramon Bato Jr. and Manuel Barrios, the appellate court’s 14th Division held that Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Gerard Mosquera’s decision removing Mayor Quintino Caspillo Jr. of Talugtog, Nueva Ecija from his post was correct. It can be recalled the Ombudsman suspended Caspillo for committing a similar offense in 2012.
