Ombudsman dismisses Masbate Gov. Lanete over PDAF anomaly


Gov. Rizalina "Dayan" Seachon Lanete

The Office of the Ombudsman dismissed former Representative, now Masbate Governor, Rizalina "Dayan" Seachon-Lanete in connection with the anomalous utilization of her Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) from 2007 to 2009 totalling P112.29 million.

Aside from her, also ordered dismissed from the service were Technology Resource Center (TRC) executives, namely: Dennis Cunanan, Marivic Jover, and Consuelo Lilian Espiritu; National Agri-Business Corporation (NABCOR) official Victor Roman Cacal; and National Livelihood Development Corporation (NLDC) representatives, namely: Gondelina Amata, Chita Jalandoni, Emmanuel Alexis Sevidal, Ofelia Ordoñez, Sofia Cruz, Filipina Rodriguez and Gregoria Buenaventura.

Lanete and co-accused are facing charges for Plunder, and multiple counts of violation of Section 3(e) of Republic Act (RA) No. 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act) before the Sandiganbayan.

Lanete’s PDAF from 2007 to 2009 were issued through 11 Special Allotment Release Orders (SAROs) with the TRC, NLDC and NABCOR as implementing agencies, and released to Napoles-NGOs.

Investigation disclosed that the PDAF was never used for the intended agricultural and livelihood projects as the documents submitted such as disbursement vouchers, progress and accomplishment reports, fund utilization, inspection and delivery reports, and certificates of acceptance were all fabricated.
