Graft cases vs Ricketts, Cedric Lee assigned to court divisions


THE graft case against Optical Media Board (OMB) Chairman Ronnie Ricketts and four OMB officials as well as the graft and malversation cases against a former Bataan mayor and businessman Cedric Lee were designated to the respective Sandiganbayan divisions. The anti-graft court’s Third Division, led by the Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang, will handle the graft and malversation cases against Lee and former Municipal Mayor Angel Peliglorio Jr. of Mariveles, Bataan. On Monday, the Office of the Ombudsman filed the graft and malversation charges against Peliglorio and Lee, which stemmed from the release of the municipality’s funds in the amount of P23.47 million in 2005 for the construction of a public market which “never commenced.”
