Sandigan denies bid of hospital execs to junk graft case
MANILA, Philippines–The Sandiganbayan Fourth Division has denied the bid of officials of the East Avenue Medical Center to have their graft case thrown out.
In a resolution, the antigraft court denied the motion for leave of court to file a demurrer filed by Medical Chief II Rolando Cortez, Finance Management Officer Marieta Cruz, Chief Administrative Officer Jose Calixtro and Administrative Officer V Bonifacio Ramos for lack of merit.
The officials face graft charges in connection with their allegedly anomalous purchase of medical supplies. —PATRICIA DENISE M. CHIU
