Councilor Ramos sues colleague over session hall fight
Councilor Dindo Ramos has filed criminal complaints before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office against Councilor Claudio Puentevella in relation to a September incident that occurred at the session hall inside the Bacolod City Government Center.
The politiko was charged with direct assault and disturbance of proceedings.
In a Visayan Daily Star article, Puentevella said he will also file this week an administrative complaint for oppression and grave misconduct against the councilor before the Office of the Ombudsman in the Visayas.
For his part Puentevella said he will also file a counter case against the complainant.
What happened, he added, was an exchange of blows and not an assault.
