The chief faces two more complaints before the Office of the President and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), according to a report from Panay News.

Council members of the suspended chief, identified as Noli Villarosa, filed complaints against the latter, as well as four other barangay officials, identified as Teresa Domadiego, barangay treasurer; Reystine Joy Cabalhin, secretary; and then Kagawad Luz Atienza, currently the officer-in-charge of the barangay; and Kagawad Jose Ray Pendon, chairperson of the committee on finance.

The said charges were for alleged misappropriation of barangay funds, falsification of barangay records, perjury, corruption, and nepotism.

The complainants also claimed that the SAP funds (Social Amelioration Program) were distributed to “unqualified persons”.

Among the allegations also include:

  • “retention and employment” of supposed barangay employees who “do not report nor appear for work” in the barangay but compensated
  • unaccounted rental collection
  • failure to remit any such collected amount since January 2020
  • concealment of records
  • refusal to act and willful non-action as regard illegal structures contrary to a circular of the Department of Interior and Local Government

Based on the report, for Villarosa’s part, he denied allegations that there were ghost employees in the barangay council.

“I’m willing to face their complaints,”

The chief is currently serving a six-month suspension and was charged before the Office of the Ombudsman by the DILG for alleged irregularities involving the implementation of the first tranche of the SAP.
