PILI, CAMARINES SUR—The P107.1 million pesos of public funds spent by former Camarines Sur Governor Luis Raymund “LRay” Villafuerte, Jr. for the 22nd Philippine Ad Congress is now gone with the wind, after Typhoon Glenda swept the province last week.

At the Provincial Capitol grounds, where the structures used to stand, all that remains now are skeletons of the tents, which were used to house some 2,000 guests in November 2011.
The same funds were the subject of a complaint against provincial government officials of Camarines Sur with the Office of the Ombudsman.
In the Comprehensive Report submitted by the Commission on Audit (COA), it was revealed that the funds were drawn from three sources: the general fund, local development fund, and loans fund of the province.
