Anti-graft crusader files complaint vs Mayor Osmeña over Kawit deal


Self-proclaimed anti-graft crusader Crisologo Saavedra has filed a complaint before the Office of the Ombudsman against Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena over the supposedly anomalous Kawit Island deal.

Saavedra called the P18-billion project a “sweetheart deal” between Osmeña and Universal Hotels and Resorts, Inc (UHRI).

He said UHRI lacked the track record to implement the project.

Saavedra said Osmeña and the selection committee should have rejected UHRI’s unsolicited offer.

The Cebu City Council, last month, rejected the resolution that would have authorized the Cebu politiko to enter into a joint venture agreement with UHRI.
