P107.1 M Cam Sur Ad Congress building levelled to the ground

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.


The provincial government spent P22 million for the installation of an electrical system and electrical works; P14 million for the construction of the kitchen, P13 million for the procurement of airconditioning units; P5 million for the expansion of the comfort room; and P8 million for the construction of concrete pedestal tents. P35 million, meanwhile, was spent for the procurement of semi-permanent structure tents, and an additional P1.3 million for allowances and miscellaneous expenses.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
