SoCot council refers admin rap vs Tuan to legal committee

The 14th Sangguniang Panlalawigan of South Cotabato on Monday has formally referred the administrative charges filed against Tboli Mayor Keo Dayle Tuan and other top officials of the municipal government to the SP committee on legal matters.

Vice Governor Arthur Pinggoy Jr. confirmed that they have received the complaint filed against the respondents for alleged dishonesty and abuse of authority.

Private complainant Evelyn Montil Gregorio claimed that Tuan, Municipal Vice Mayor Ronnie Dela Peña, and Sangguniang Bayan members Kirk Tuan, Mansueto Dela Peña, Pacifico Cordada, Jr., Falin Kuta, Valerio Fado, Gading Kamblan, Romeo Sugan, and Samuel Haus, abused their authority in granting tax incentives to Crown Jewel Hotel owned by the Tuan family.

Gregorio also claimed that the respondents orchestrated the alleged dishonest act when the Provincial Treasurer’s Office issued a Notice of Delinquency to Crown Jewel Hotel for failure to pay real property taxes in the total amount of P3.3 million.

“Depende sa findings ng committee at kung ano ang kanilang recommendation. I assured na ang ating Sanggunian, is an independent body. Sasagutin nila iyan,” Pinggoy said.
