• Ex-MWSS official faces raps over unliquidated cash advances

    2

    Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales has approved the filing of charges against Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) Deputy Administrator Cristeto Dinopol for allegedly failing to liquidate cash advances amounting to P26,652.55. The anti-graft office charged Dinopol with violations of the Revised Penal Code’s Article 218 or the Failure to Render Accounts after he reportedly failed to account for his visits to Cagayan de Oro City and the provinces of Bataan and Pampanga. The Ombudsman ruled that public officials and employees must be able to fully liquidate advances at the end of each year. It also cited the Commission on Audit (COA) Circular No. 97-002, which orders accountable officials to liquidate cash advances within 60 days after return to the Philippines for official foreign travels or within 30 days for local travel. Dinopol also allegedly continued “without any explanation” to disregard the demand letter sent to him in February last year.”
