Ombudsman orders dismissal of Cebu City councilor Cuenco

Cebu City Councilor James Anthony Cuenco has been ordered ​d​ismissed ​over his alleged involvement in the misuse of the pork barrel of his father, former Representative Antonio Cuenco.

The Office of the Ombudsman ordered the dismissal after finding him guilty of serious dishonesty and grave misconduct.

The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has already served the dismissal to Cuenco.

The case stemmed from irregularities in the implementation of the Tony N’ Tommy Health Program funded by the Priority Development Assistance Fund of the elder Cuenco.

Also ordered dismissed is Manuel Tigpos, one of the staff members of the elder Cuenco.
