Cam mulls filing of grave threats charges vs Balutan
Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) board member Sandra Cam is eyeing to file grave threats charges against her superior, PCSO General Manager Alexander Balutan.
In a press conference on Thursday, Cam accused Balutan of being the alleged mastermind in the supposed threats she has been receiving for the past weeks.
Cam said her staff saw Balutan and his men enter the office of PCSO chairman Jose Jorge Corpuz. One of Balutan’s male staffer, she said, was supposedly heard saying: “Saan ba dito ang opisina ni Sandra Cam? Pasabugin na natin.”
In addition, the PCSO board member likewise claimed that she has also been harassed by anonymous senders of threatening texts and calls. She even recalled a caller who was laughing as he said: “Ha ha ha. Malapit ka na.”
Cam said she has already filed a blotter at the Mandaluyong City Police Station over the threats.
It was Cam who bared the PCSO’s P10-million Christmas party, but Balutan said it was only P6 million.
Balutan explained that the Department of Budget and Management had originally approved a Christmas party budget of P14 million, but that he had actually cut it down to P6 million. /kga
