The Sandiganbayan has ordered the 90-day preventive suspension of Benguet Board Member and former Buguias mayor Apolinario Camsol in connection to the irregular purchase of insecticides in 2004.
The Benguet politiko, together with former municipal treasurer Anecita Suyat, former municipal accountant Marcelino Endi, and former municipal agriculturist Asano Aban are accused of violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and the Government Procurement Reform Act.
The four allegedly gave preference to PMB-Agro Goods and Services by awarding the contract worth P1.05 million without any public bidding.
Camsol’s suspension began on June 5.
He was recently reelected as Board Member in the May 13 elections.
