Ramos to file admin raps vs Puentevella
BACOLOD City Councilor Dindo Ramos will file an administrative complaint today before the Office of Ombudsman against his fellow councilor Claudio “Kalaw” Puentevella in Cebu City.
Ramos said yesterday he will file oppression and grave misconduct against Puentevella.
On Monday, Ramos also filed the criminal complaint against Puentevella for direct assault and disturbance of proceedings.
On September 12, the members of the City Council were deliberating on the contract of the city government with garbage hauler IPM Construction and Development Corp, where a heated argument ensued between the two councilors.
Both councilors stood up after the recess, but Puentevella suddenly punched Ramos.
“I believe these are strong cases and as a lawyer, I will not file a case with no chance or with no merits. Otherwise, it will encourage other councilors not only in Bacolod City but also in other cities and municipalities to hurt their fellow councilors and that would be a bad message if this case will be dismissed,” Ramos said.*
