ISABELA, NEGROS OCCIDENTAL – A barangay chairman and a DSWD social worker will face charges after several complaints of SAP corruption were filed.
A Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) official along with a chairman in one of the barangays in Isabela, Negros Occidental, and one of his employees were charged with Republic Act 3019 or Anti-Graft and Corrupt practices for taking advantage of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) of the government.
According to the report of DYHB, this found out after several residents complain against these public servants’ anomalies while distributing the SAP cash aid. Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOPPO) Director Colonel Romeo Baleros confirmed the accusations after their three-day investigation.
According to Baleros, one of the complainant said after the SAP was given to two unqualified beneficiaries. Baleros said the two unqualified beneficiaries were the 13-year-old nephew of the chairman living in his home and one of his employees born in Isabela but resident of Brgy. Maao, Bago City.
The NOPPO director added, the three were reported because there were many qualified SAP beneficiaries in their barangay, but they were not given financial assistance from the government.
Previously, President Rodrigo Duterte offers P30k reward cash to certain individuals who will report corrupt officials taking advantage of government aids as he express anger to the arrested barangay official in Bulacan.
