Earlier, lawyer Reynaldo "Rene" Depasucat, Sr. is planning to file the same charges against Gamboa on ground that the incumbent mayor is about to conclude his third and final term this coming July.
...Gamboa started as mayor of EB Magalona in 1998.
In 2001 elections, he
re-election bid against Depasucat's son, Reynaldo Jr., but he
wasn't able to assume immediately due to an election protest filed against him.Comelec
officially declared him winner only in August 2003.In 2004, he
ran again and defeated then acting mayor Romulo Rhoel Mogul.
In an interview over Bombo Radyo-Bacolod, Gamboa
expected the move of the Depasucats, but stressed that he
is ready to face the music.
"I've already sought legal opinion on this matter.So I am confident that the case has no bearing anymore," he
added in the same radio interview.
