Cordillera civil defense officials face graft charges


BAGUIO CITY: Two top officials of the  Office of Civil Defense Officials in the Cordillera region are facing graft suits before the Ombudsman for alleged anomalies in the purchase of training equipment in 2012. Former contractual employee Rex Manuel in his complaint filed before the Office of the Ombudsman against Regional Director Andrew Alex Uy and Assistant Regional Director Jose Valera said he is suing the two for allegedly manipulating the bidding process to favor Baguio City-based Jet Bookstore over two other companies—Camp Sandugo Outdoor Shop-Robbinson’s Galeria and Habagat. Manuel         who claims to have personal knowledge of the anomalies told the Ombudsman that he was himself involved in the canvassing for the purchase of said training equipment.
