Ombudsman suspends Mayor Calucag for 1 month over simple negligence
Solsona Mayor Alex Calucag has been ordered suspended for one month by the Office of the Ombudsman in connection to a violation of the Government Procurement Reform Act.
The Office of the Ombudsman said the Ilocos Norte politiko was guilty of simple negligence when he awarded the purchase of medicines to a non-compliant bidder in 2017.
Former Samuel Balantac filed the complaint against Calucag.
The Solsona mayor said he will filed an appeal.
“I accept the decision. In fact, I am happy about it. Perhaps, it’s giving me a sign,” he said.
