The Office of the Ombudsman has ordered to remove neophyte Senator Joel Villanueva from government office after probing of the misuse in Priority Development Acceleration fund when he was still a party-list representative.
Facebook page, the former TESDA chief aired his side:
This is an old case when I was a representative of CIBAC in Congress. As far as I can remember, as a minority congressman then, I did not receive that amount. In addition, the NBI has already made a conclusion that the signatures on the related documents were forged. One of the documents even used a Buhay partylist letterhead, when I was representing CIBAC partylist.Netizens then outpoured their support to the Senator
I already filed a motion for reconsideration before the Ombudsman, and will leave it to the Senate President to act on the Ombudsman's order. In any case, my faith is strong in the judicial system and in time, justice will be served.
