• Puentevella’s travel plea denied


    The Sandiganbayan’s Fourth Division has denied with finality the request of former Bacolod Rep. and now Mayor Monico Puentevella to travel abroad. Puentevella appealed the anti-graft court’s ruling which earlier thumbed down his request for permission to travel to Zurich, Switzerland for the 65th FIFA Congress and to New York, USA to attend a summit. But in a two-page ruling dated May 27, the court, like in its earlier ruling on his Motion for Leave of Court to Travel Abroad, said that his Urgent Ex Parte Motion for Reconsideration “is not well-taken.” The court said the motion for reconsideration is “litigious” in nature and thus the court could not just act upon the same and grant it ex parte.
