Bawal yun! Ex-Mayor Nepomuceno sent to prison for gifting NGO with gov’t vehicle
Former Angeles City Mayor Francis Nepomuceno has been found guilty of two charges of graft by the Sandiganbayan Fourth Division for having donated a Mitsubishi Adventure to a non-government organization (NGO) in 2010.
In its 26-page decision, the Sandiganbayan sentenced Nepomuceno to suffer imprisonment of at least 12 years.
Meted with the same sentence was his co-accused, Kapanalig Angeles City Inc. President Abelardo Pamintuan Jr.
The anti-graft court ruled that the donation was made “without justification because a motor vehicle which is still in use by the city government is not allowed.”
Records show that Nepomuceno donated the vehicle, which was bought by the local government at the cost of P786,000, to Kapanalig.
