SC junks ex-Dumanjug mayor’s petition for review on dismissal case

0 426

The Supreme Court (SC) has junked former Dumanjug mayor Gun-Gun Gica’s petition for review on the Ombudsman for Visayas’ dismissal order against him.

The SC, in its decision, said Gica failed to prove that the Ombudsman’s resolutions were tainted with grave abuse of discretion.

“The Court resolves to dismiss the instant petition for failure to sufficiently show that the questioned resolutions are tainted with grave abuse of discretion,” the SC ruling stated.

The Cebu politiko was dismissed in 2016 and 2017 for tampering a restaurant receipt when he was still vice mayor in 2014.

Gica bloated the original amount of P11,435 to P21,435 and falsified his liquidation report.
