MANILA, Philippines—Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales on Wednesday ordered the filing of criminal case against a former mayor in Abra province and a treasurer for their failure to remit municipal employees’ contribution to the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) or Pag-ibig and the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).

In a 15-page resolution approved by Morales, they found probable cause to indict former municipal mayor Lovelyn P. Domes-ag and municipal treasurer Dorinda B. Bumogas, both of the municipality of Peñarrubia, Abra for 15 counts of Violation of Section 5, in relation to Section 23, of Presidential Decree (PD) No. 1752, as amended by Republic Act No. 7742, for failure to remit the employer’s and the employees’ contributions to Pag-ibig from October 2002 to December 2003.

For failure to remit the exact or correct amount of contributions to the GSIS from July 1998 to June 2002, Domes-ag and Bumogas were also indicted for 48 counts of violation of Republic Act No. 8291 or GSIS Act of 1997.

The Ombudsman also approved the filing of separate 18 counts of violation of the GSIS Act for failure to pay and remit to the GSIS the employer’s and the employees’ contributions from January 2003 to June 2004.

The Resolution found that from July 1998 to June 2006, only the period from July 2002 to December 2002 was accounted for.

The case stemmed from the criminal complaint filed by Ruben M. Amboni and several others stating that the GSIS and Pag-ibig premium contributions and loan amortizations due the Philippine National Bank (PNP) and the Rural Bank of Villaviciosa (RBV) were regularly deducted from their respective salaries, but the same were not fully or not at all remitted to the respective agencies and institutions.

Complainants said they received demand letters from PNB and statement of accounts from GSIS and Pag-ibig, but when they brought these matters to Domes-ag and Bumogas, the two officials refused to explain where the collected funds were spent.

The GSIS contributions that have not been remitted was worth P4,075,251.19 as reflected in the Summary of Social Insurance Contributions Collectibles.

With respect to loan payments for Pag-ibig, however, the Office held that “there is a dearth of evidence on record to support the allegation that deductions for loan payments were made but were not remitted and misappropriated.

  2. Hopefully this is the beginning of the coming of justice in Abra, where we feel the impact of The Matuwid na Daan ni Pinoy. Not only in Malibcong Hummie, most if not all municipalities are polluted with corruptions. Let us pray that Senator Lacson will accept the offer of the president to head a kind of anti-corruption agency/commission to eradicatet this perennial ill of the country. Pagnatuloy, sigurado, many heads will roll, especially these undeserving ‘servants’ who acted as masters, master of terror and deceit that lead to our miseries.

Dagitoy nga klase ti tattao nga mangagaw ti para kadagit nanumo ket isudanto ti kanummuan no husgaan na tayo ni Dios Apo. Ammok nga adu ti manindua nga mangan nga asin ken nateng la ti nayon ti bassit nga innapoy wenno lugaw ti inaldaw, Ngem dakayonto ti kagasatan no umay ni Apo. Diiay Libro ni Mateo 5:3 ,

    kuna ni Apo Jesus ” nagasat dagit mangaklon ti kinakurapayda ta isudanto ti agtawid ti langit” .bay-anyo nga agpapas dagitoy nga pasurot ti demonio ta saanda la nga abusado, talaga nga awan consenciada, AWAN PULOS TI BABAINDA!

    • Whoever you are , action men/women of the Ombudsman, please act in a timely manner or are you just embarrassing the Chief Ombudsman or our current President? You had been there for so long devouring government money but why until now uray koma laeng barangay councilman awan pay naipabalud yo? Ania saan kayo pay nga nabsog ta pangbutbuteng yo man daytoyen ta adda man bukaugain/pagkuartaan yon? Kung totoo kayo marami na sana kayong naipabilanggo at hindi lang sana si Presidente ang tuwang-tuwa kundi pati hindi pa IPINANGANAK na kamag-anak ninyo.
      Meron araw din kayo sa katakawan ninyo….unless you will decide now to turn away from your evil ways……pls. remember me when it happens…..
