TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has ordered the suspension for 90 days of Kalinga provincial board member Camilto Lammawin Jr. in connection with an extortion complaint filed against him and his wife last year.

Sandiganbayan Third Division Associate Justice Sarah Jane Fernandez served the suspension order issued by DILG-Kalinga director Francisco Gamatero during the  flag-raising ceremony at the capitol grounds in Tabuk City on Monday.

Lammawin and his wife, Salud, allegedly extorted P520,000 from Rodman Construction and Development Corp., the contractor for Tabuk City’s water supply works in exchange for the release of the funding for the P2-million project.

The anti-graft court rejected Lammawin’s petition appealing his suspension.
