MANILA 12/12/16 (Bicol Standard) -- Camarines Sur 2nd District Representative LRay Villafuerte has agreed to serve the 90-day preventive suspension imposed by the 6th Division of the Sandiganbayan.
This he told House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez after his motion for reconsideration for his preventive suspension was denied by the graft court the other week.
In a report gathered by the BICOL STANDARD, Villafuerte filed a two-page manifestation to voluntarily serve his preventive suspension from December 15, 2016 to March 15, 2017.
He clarified, however, that his submission to the order of the court is not an admission of any liability or guilt.
The congressman is facing a graft charge for the alleged anomalous procurement of Php20-million worth of petroleum without going through the required public bidding.
This was when he was still governor of Camarines Sur.
