Ombudsman junks administrative complaint vs ex-Pontevedra mayor over cockpit
The Office of the Ombudsman-Visayas has junked the administrative case against former Pontevedra Mayor Steve Contreras and eight municipal council members over a barangay captain’s cockpit.
The village chief of Barangay Hipona filed a complaint against the Capiz politiko after the municipal government did not renew the permit of his family-owned cockpit.
The Office of the Ombudsman said there was not evidence to support the complaint.
Contreras said he expected the Ombudsman’s decision.
He said there was no legal basis for the administrative complaint.
