Senator Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan on Friday posted a P60,000 bail for 2 counts of graft filed in opposition to him earlier than the Sandiganbayan on the alleged misuse of his P30-million precedence growth help fund (PDA) in 2012.
Accompanied by his lawyer Dennis Manalo, Honasan posted bail on the Binan City, Laguna Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 25.
The reserving procedures had been earlier performed on the Binan City police station earlier than continuing to the RTC.
The court sheriff will ship to the Sandiganbayan the posted bail inside the day for the data and applicable motion of the anti-graft court.
The anti-graft court issued the warrant of arrest in opposition to Honasan for violation of Republic Act No. 3019, or the “Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act”, which was filed by the Office of the Ombudsman’s (Ombudsman) Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) in opposition to Honasan.
“The Court finds that there is sufficient probable cause to hold the accused in this case for trial and issue a warrant of arrest for them,” the Sandiganbayan Second Division decision stated.
Likewise ordered arrested had been Honasan’s coordinator Michael Benjamin and former officers of the National Council for Muslim Filipino (NCMF), particularly: Mehol Sadain, Fedelina Aldanese, Galay Makalinggan, Aurora Aragon-Mabang and Olga Galido.
Also included in the case are the officers of the Focus Development Goals Foundation, Inc., particularly: Giovanni Manuel Gaerlan and Salvador Gaerlan. (PNA)
