Two ex-Cebu officials face graft raps


The Office of the Ombudsman has found sufficient ground to file graft charges before the Sandiganbayan against former Bogo, Cebu Mayor Celestino Martinez 3rd and Municipal Treasurer Rhett Minguez in connection with the fertilizer fund scam. Martinez and Minguez can still appeal the matter before the said office. The case stemmed from the allegedly anomalous implementation of the Farm Inputs and Farm Implements Program totaling P6 million intended for the purchase of fertilizer for rice and corn. In 2004, the municipality received the sum in six checks from the Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Unit 7 for Central Visayas.
