Mayor Files Complaint Vs. Alcala

A former mayor of a city in Quezon province has filed charges before the Office of the Ombudsman against Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Proceso Alcala for his alleged falsified disbursements of government funds from his Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) during his term as second district congressman of the province from June 30, 2007 to June 30, 2010.

In a press conference in Quezon City, former Lucena City Mayor Ramon Talaga Jr. said the liquidation report submitted by the Sir Pelagio Alcantara Development Foundation Inc. (SPADE) to the Social Welfare Department disclosed that each of the 65 farmers received P50,000 duly signed by the supposed recipients of the fund.

However, the fund allegedly failed to reach most of the intended beneficiaries as a number of farmers denied having been given the funds attributed to them through the vouchers they supposedly signed, said Talaga.
