• Ex-Quezon mayor, 2 others face graft


    ISARME Bosque, former mayor of Pollilo town in Quezon, Municipal Treasurer Carmelita Marasigan, and Municipal Assessor Samson Ayapana are facing graft charges for the alleged illegal purchase of a parcel of swamp land in 2005 using public funds. This developed after Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales affirmed the filing of criminal charges before the Sandiganbayan against them in an 11-page order. Office of the Ombudsman records showed that Bosque entered into a deed of sale without authority from the Sangguniang Bayan for the purchase of 3.3 hectares of land in Barangay Libjo without conducting a feasibility study on the suitability of the project site and no ocular inspection was conducted prior to acquisition. The lot with an assessed value of P24,870 was bought for P411,000.
