NBI sought to probe City Hall's transactions with 'unqualified' caterer

·1 min read

A RADIO commentator has lodged a complaint against the Cebu City government before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Central Visayas over the pack meals worth P19.5 million that were bought from a food caterer who was "favored" by the City.

Radio commentator Arturo "Art" Barrit is asking the NBI 7 to investigate some Cebu City officials who reportedly earned money by colluding with M & R Food Services, the catering business that the City hired to provide meals for frontliners during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"And whether there were non-delivery of packed meals or ghost deliveries of orders, devalued packed meals as what other concerned city hall officials would point out, then it is hereby humbly requests by this concerned taxpayer for the NBI to take its active role to unmask the real culprit and perpetrator of these questionable transactions," Barrit said, in his letter.

Barrit's letter-complaint was addressed to NBI 7 director and lawyer Rennan Augustus Oliva.

The complaint was received by the NBI 7 on August 23, 2021.

In a statement he posted on Facebook, Barrit claimed City Hall officials allegedly bought packed meals amounting to P19.5 million from M & R Food Services, which he claims to be "unqualified in terms of financial standing" but was given favor to provide services to the City. (JKV)
