MANILA, Philippines — The Court of Appeals has affirmed the dismissal of 18 officials and employees of the Palawan provincial government tagged in the misuse of the province’s share in the Malampaya fund amounting to P2.57 billion.

Covered by the ombudsman’s ruling were Ronelo del Socorro, senior technical audit specialist; Edwin Iglesia, state auditor; Romeo Llacuna, Bernard Zambales, Pedro Gatinga Jr., Rosario Abacial, Tommy Panes, Bayani Buenaventura, Pepe Patacsil, Renato Abrina and Alfredo Padua – all engineers;

Ferdinand Dilig, general services officer; Luis Marcaida, budget officer; Rolando Bonoan Jr., Sangguniang Panlalawigan member; Samuel Madamba II, former planning and development coordinator; Orlando Colobong, accountant;

Manuela Cabiguen, assistant engineer-administration/inspectorate team leader; and Federico Rubio Jr., assistant engineer-operation/inspectorate team leader.
