The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group is investigating 10 barangays of Bacolod City for alleged irregularities in the distribution of the Social Amelioration Program cash grants, Chief Master Sgt. Ramiro Gocotano, CIDG-Bacolod head, said yesterday.
As of yesterday, 22 individuals have already filed complaints before the CIDG-Bacolod against barangay officials and personnel over the SAP payout, Gocotano said.
Barangays with SAP complaints include Felisa, Handumanan, Mandalagan, Mansilingan, Bata, Alangilan, Granada, Sum-ag, 1 and 34, he said.
Charges for violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act are being readied for filing this week against the barangay officials and staff of Felisa, after seven complainants gathered evidence and documents to support the filing of the case, Gocotano said.
Other complaints are still being investigated, he said.
Some other cases, due to lack of supporting evidences, were forwarded to barangay captains for possible resolution and immediate action, Gocotano added.*
