NEA suspends 7 coop officials in Cam Norte

CAMARINES NORTE –The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has imposed a sixty-day preventive suspension against seven members of the Board of Directors of Camarines Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc., (Canoreco) including its former Officer-in-charge (OIC) and an employee of the said coop.

This case stemmed from the administrative case filed against the coop officials docketed under NEA Administrative Case No. 11-97-14.

Included in the list of suspended coop officials are Board President Arwin Segundo, Board of Directors Cesar Brondia, Domingo Sarmiento, Henry Zano, Freddie Parale, Alexander Bardon, Elmer Dasco and former OIC Engr. Henry Sendon and Efren Belgado.

NEA Project Supervisor and Acting General Manager Engr. Wilfredo Busit was directed to implement the suspension order.

The preventive suspension order was the result of the May 27, 2014 memorandum of the NEA Deputy Administrator regarding the Comprehensive Audit covering the period from August 1, 2011 to July 31, 2014.

The Audit findings pointed out that there is a possibility that the abovementioned coop officials failed to protect the interest of the electric cooperative.

The following items were cited as the bases for the preventive suspension:

(1) The Board of Directors allegedly intervened in the functions of the PBAC in the grant of a contract to supply, deliver and install two units of 5 MVA Substation. Moreover, the installation of the 69 KV line did not follow the regular bidding process as well as the evaluation of the bids. It was noted that because of the said discrepancy, the electric cooperative suffered a difference in the price totalling to about P23,199,970.42;

(2) Grave abuse of discretion and open defiance of the guidelines issued by the NEA regarding the disposal of the 10 MVA power transformer, which was disposed of in a trade-in agreement;

(3) Approval of the security contract to Strikeforce Alpha Security Services, Inc. which, the records show offered the highest bid price, compared to the other bidders;

(4) The wireless connectivity project which contract was aborted after the BP Integrated Technologies, Inc. revoked the authority given to O.F. Gomez, after an initial payment of P1,523,229.56 was given;

(5) After repeated reminders, the said officials fail to follow the guidelines of the NEA regarding the benefits, allowances; and write off of power bills.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM

NBI, KBP join search for LGU Minalabac missing engineer

MINALABAC, CAMARINES SUR—The tear-streaked wife of missing LGU Minalabac engineer Ferdinand F. Aquino has already appealed to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for help in locating her husband who has been missing since Saturday, July 12.

Missing LGU Minalabac Engr. Ferdinand Aquino
Missing LGU Minalabac Engr. Ferdinand F. Aquino
Mrs. Mercy Valencia-Aquino, Engr. Aquino’s spouse, sent a letter to Atty. Tomas Enrile, NBI Director for Region V, narrating the details prior to her husband’s disappearance.

The letter, which was dated July 18, Friday, was shared to the local media this morning via Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) Camarines Sur chairman Edwin Lara.

In the letter, Mrs. Aquino said that her husband left their home at around 10:00 in the morning on July 12 to finish his work in his office at LGU Minalabac.

She further recalled that in the evening of said date, she and her husband had been exchanging text messages in which she asked that he come home.

Engr. Aquino said that he still had to finish his work, but assured his wife that he would come home later. She waited in vain.

On Sunday, July 13, however, they exchanged text messages again. Engr. Aquino promised that he will be home before dark.

He never came home.

Mrs. Aquino said that she tried calling him on his cellphone, but could not reach him.

The next day, July 14, Mrs. Aquino went to her husband’s office to look for him. She was told that Engr. Aquino was allegedly seen by a co-employee along Magsaysay Avenue the night before.
Days passed without any news of the whereabouts of Engr. Aquino. As Typhoon Glenda was battering the Bicol region, Mrs. Aquino was growing desperate to find her husband.

She informed Engr. Aquino’s parents, who reside in Tarlac, that their son did not come home. Alarmed, they travelled to Bicol, braving Typhoon Glenda. 

Together with her in-laws, Mrs. Aquino tried to look for clues about where her husband could be.
She also sought assistance from the Mayor’s Office and the Minalabac Municipal Police Station.
To date, it has been almost two weeks since Engr. Aquino was reported missing.

This morning, Mrs. Aquino and her in-laws went to KBP Chairman Edwin Lara to request for an opportunity to be interviewed on radio and TV and ask for the public’s help in locating Engr. Aquino.

Any information regarding Engr. Aquino may be sent to Mrs. Aquino at 0927-309-7685 or 0909-943-5942—BICOLSTANDARD.COM

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
