VACC Chairman Dante Jimenez, said to the media that the case which was filed in April, has not since moved. By now, Salceda should have been suspended, Jimenez said.

The complaint stemmed from a P47-million allotment that was allegedly used to aid evacuees during the 2009 Mayon Volcano eruption.

Michael A. Miña, Manuel P. Alagaban, Julius P. Del Rosario, Bienvenido M. Belga, Sr., and Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), represented by Chairman Martin B. Dino filed the complaint.

Meanwhile, along with Salceda, Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer of Albay Yolanda Guanzon is named as respondent.

Salceda earlier categorically denied the allegations in the complaint. —BICOLSTANDARD.COM
