Dec 18, 2016 @ 13:41

Former Mariveles, Bataan Mayor Angel Viray Peliglorio has been charged with graft over an anomalous land purchase in 2006.

The Office of the Ombudsman filed the case before the Sandiganbayan after finding probable cause to indict the politiko.

The Sandiganbayan Second Division has been picked to handle the case following one of its weekly raffles.

The case stemmed from the purchase of a 3,777-square-meter property by the local government from a certain Lauro Guansing when Paliglorio was still mayor.

The Ombudsman discovered that he approved the payment of P1,888,500 despite the lack of Transfer Certificate of Titles (TCTs) of the land and several other important documents to support the transaction.

Also, the Ombudsman found out that the local government only acquired 1,131 square meters of the property when Guansing turned over the TCTs.
