Cerilles couple charged with plunder by staff



Zamboanga del Sur Rep. Aurora Cerilles. http://www.congress.gov.ph

MANILA, Philippines—Six former and current members of the staff of Zamboanga del Sur Rep. Aurora Cerilles and her husband, provincial Gov. Antonio Cerilles, have charged the couple with plunder, malversation and falsification in the Office of the Ombudsman.

The complainants were Raul Molina and Tyrone Singgo, two former chiefs of staff of Aurora Cerilles; and for Antonio Cerilles, Pedro Ramirez Jr., current Zamboanga del Sur OIC provincial treasurer; Bernadette Ordoñez, acting provincial accountant; Rogelio Montealto, provincial budget officer, and Mustapha Piang, former executive assistant of the provincial government for Muslim affairs.

In their complaint, they accused the Cerilles couple of spending public funds for their “personal and private use and sought their preventive suspension from office while the case is being investigated.

“As trusted staff and confidants, we were directed to perform various tasks for the Cerilles couple, including personal ones, and often worked beyond regular working hours and days,” Molina and Singgo said in their joint complaint dated Jan. 24.

Governor Cerilles, however, dismissed the accusations as part of the widescale political attacks against him and his family.

“Malakas ang mga galamay ng mga taong (They are powerful, those) responsible for this and they timed it during the political season,” Cerilles told the Inquirer by phone on Saturday afternoon.

Cerilles cited three motives of the complainants. He said they wanted to cover up the Aman case which is gaining ground against Mayor Samuel Co. Secondly, the Jalosjoses wanted to level the playing field after Dominador Jalosjos was delisted by the Comelec due to a criminal case, and thirdly, those who filed the plunder charges were being investigated by the Commission on Audit.

The complainants said they were forced to file a case after learning in 2011 that they were on the hit list of the Provincial Special Operations Group (PSOG), which they claimed was notorious for the extrajudicial killing of political and personal enemies of the Cerilles couple.

Governor Cerilles, however, denied threatening those behind the plunder charges.

Both Molina and Singgo alleged that provincial funds were spent and equipment was used for the private and personal benefit of the couple. They submitted voluminous documents to prove their claims.

These included the renovation of the Cerilles-owned Hotel Alindahaw; the purchase of office supplies and equipment for the Philippine Para-Medical and Technical School, a private school allegedly owned by the Cerilleses; public funds and equipment for their fishpond in Pitogo; home supplies, including a water dispenser, kitchen utensils and grocery items; hardware materials for the renovation of the Cerilleses’ warehouse in Lebangan, and public funds for campaign materials and office supplies of the party headquarters of the couple during the 2007 elections.

The complainants further alleged that the couple operated the “suertes” illegal numbers game which was managed by provincial employees.


P30-M withdrawal alleged

Ramirez, meanwhile, claimed the couple used the intelligence and trust funds of the province for their personal use and for election purposes.

He said that a month before the May 2010 elections, then Gov. Aurora Cerilles withdrew P30 million in one week “with instructions that the money be in denominations of P100 and P500.”

Montealto and Piang, who were both ambushed, blamed the couple for the attacks.

In July 2012, the Ombudsman filed graft charges against Aurora Cerilles in the Sandiganbayan for overpriced medical supplies bought in 2001 for P7 million. The COA found that the medical supplies were procured solely from U-Net Distributors Corp.

Turning the tables on his accusers, Cerilles said Ramirez was under investigation for using government trust fund and IRA fund services. He said this was the reason all the financial benefits and salaries of Ramirez were placed on hold.

He also said he placed Montealto and Ordoñez on floating status because of some anomalous transactions.

Cerilles said Molina bought two brand new cars in Cagayan de Oro City while working for his wife but resigned when she called for a lifestyle check. With a report from Julie Alipala, Inquirer Mindanao

    • speaksoftlylove

      Obviously a lie. Zamboanga del Sur became a province in 1914 and there were more than ten governors already before Vicente Cerilles, the father of Antonio Cerilles became a governor. Vicente Cerilles was removed by Marcos and replaced with Tecson but then Marcos removed Tecson when the latter was forced to side with the people opposing the Mindanao autonomous government. Obviously, you don’t know the meaning of “time immemoria,l” look for it in any dictionary.

      • efriend

    Plunder charge and conviction have lost their punch, credibility, effectivity, meaning, IMHO, since this polygamist and professional hoodwinker was pardoned by the equally corrupt Gloria.

       I don’t know where you got your info but I’m sure you are just guessing. I am from Zamboanga del Sur and I know all the politicians in Zamboanga del Sur from head to foot, pati baho nila. So. where do you get your polygamist story? For your info, the graft case filed against Congressman Aurora Cerilles is still pending with the Ombudsman and the charge even included my former classmate Corazon Silla, the wife of the former vice governor Roseller Ariosa who was also my former classmate. So. I know who should be guilty or not. Another thing is that Governor Antonio Cerilles is the nephew of Ernesto Maceda. His father’s middle initial is Madarang, the same middle initial of Manong Maceda. Gov. Cerilles is loyal to Erap. In fact, he was the former DENR Secretary of Erap and the last one to leave Erap iwhen he left the palace. So, the angle of political pressure or persecution is obvious. Therefore, how in the hell does the name GMA came into the picture of your lies?

      In the Philippines, the electoral process is I think not the tool to get rid of corrupt government official. In a country where majority of the voters are poor, election is a sort of popularity contest. I think that even corrupt and undeserving officials are repeatedly elected into office because these officials know how to manipulate the hearts and mind of the masses. The reality is that political dynasties proliferated. And members of these dynasties are even idolized by the masses.

    WHAT’S NEW?  –  The cerilleses of Zamboanga del Sur are just one of the hundreds of lawmakers and local chief executives who have been misappropriating public funds for private use, the most notorious of them are the members of congress who liquidate billions of taxpayers’ money by mere certification only.

    We’re lucky to have a crusading Ombudsman who is hell-bent on doing her constitutional duty of penalizing public officers for graft and other transgressions.

    What’s intriguing about the cerilles’ case is that of one molina accused by gov tony cerilles of buying 2 brand new vehicles while in Cagayan de Oro working with his wife – probably helping herself while arranging cash denominations into 20s and 50s withdrawn from millions of intelligence funds, for vote buying.

    In this battle against corruption wages by the lowly against the mighty, Pnoy as the instigator by virtue of his springboard Matuwid na daan must not fail to assist these accusers for if he does then nobody in his or her right mind shall come forth to risk his or her life and exposed the anomalies done by these ranking officials or politicians in the government.

    Take for instance the case of Lozada who seek refuge from the nun’s convent for safekeeping because his life including that of his family are in constant fear of reprisal. The gov’t though they now deny, were remiss to provide them the ample security and support consequently Lozada is all alone in the dark except his guardian angels, to confront his nemesis, the so called queen of thieves in the government.

    Lozada’s case is a black eye to the matuwid na daan of pnoy

    Wherever Cerilles goes, the place stinks with corruption. When he was DENR Secretary, Cerilles stunk the place up (Sec Paje knows this).  Now, he is the Governor of Zamboanga del Sur, his staff could no longer stand the stench and nobly chose the way out by exposing his corrupt activities and of his wife’s. Perhaps, inspired by PNoy’s “Tuwid na Daan”.  Cerilles
    dismisses the charges as politically and even “Aman-ly” motivated.  He and his wife control the province with an iron fist. The prov’l treasurer, accountant, budget officer and their chiefs of
    staff could not do anything but follow their orders.  Two of them were even ambushed.  The government should protect them.  The COA should step in.  The Ombudsman should act swiftly.  Do something people!

    Well the people of Zamboanga voted for Cerilles and wife despite being corrupt, that is the irony. I guess the accusation will all be naught by their being elected in office. The accusers are also being accused of corruption in court so which is which. The matuwid na daan of PNoy will have to be meticulously monitored since he said that if you believe in his leadership vote for LP candidates. Mayor Co of Dipolog City was involved in Aman Futures scam by encouraging people of Dipolog to invest in the scam. However, being an LP he can be the elected again as governor (?) of Zamboanga?  Well, politics is a big business in the country where family members are involved. Well, ganyan talaga sa Pinas.

    “The complainants said they were forced to file a case after learning in 2011 that they were on the hit list of the Provincial Special Operations Group (PSOG), which they claimed was notorious for the extrajudicial killing of political and personal enemies of the Cerilles couple.”

    “(provincial budget officer Rogelio) Montealto and former executive assistant of the provincial government for Muslim affairs Mustapha) Piang, who were both ambushed, blamed the (Cerilles) couple for the attacks.”

    The staff filed a detailed Plunder charge against their bosses, Governor & wife Congressman Cerilles, for fear of lossing their lives. This reminds of one individual’s similar circumstances that led to the fall of a president via EDSA Dos. . .Could this be the start of the End of Political Dynasties? A domino effect from Zamboange del Sur to Zamboanga del Norte to Cebu, etc.?
