MANILA, Philippines — A former member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur has been indicted for allegedly failing to liquidate his cash advances in 2006 amounting to P169,101.50

Emmanuel  Noble was charged with malversation of public funds and failure to render accounts under Articles 217 and 218 of the Revised Penal Code by the Office of the Ombudsman before the Sandiganbayan on Oct. 5.

Based on the charge sheets prepared by graft investigation and prosecution officer Zarnette Sanceda, Noble received a total of P444,477.50 for his travel expenses, but P169,101.50 remain unliquidated.

With Noble’s failure to account for the money, the ombudsman said it is ”deemed that he converted the same for his personal benefit or have allowed another person to take it.”

Bail was recommended at P26,000.

The charge sheets were approved by former ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales last May 2. Ombudsman Samuel Martires reviewed and signed them only last Oct. 2.
