The Negros Occidental Provincial Prosecutor's Office this week filed charges of illegal possession of firearms, explosives and obstruction of justice against persons apprehended by the police when they searched the ancestral house of former Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña in Barangay Ubay, Pulupandan, where they seized 90 firearms on May 2.
As gathered during the clarificatory hearing, the COMPAC was organized by the former police chief of Pulupandan without authority from the Philippine National Police on the land owned by the Montilla family of which Peña is a member, she said.
The raiding team had all the reason to secure this place for possible assistance that it may render the people inside the premises of the Ubay ancestral house upon implementation of the search warrant, she added.

Alfredo Marañon Jr. against former Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña, without prejudice to its refiling in the proper court.
The information filed in the criminal action stated that on March 21, 2013, Peña, with malicious intent to impeach and ridicule the credibility and reputation of Marañon, uttered the following defamatory words: "Guv is 80 years old and delusions and dementia are indications of Alzheimer's...he is dreaming, that's not going to happen..." before members of the media, which was published in the Visayan DAILY STAR.
Espiritu then filed the case before Dela Fuente in Escalante City despite the obvious lack of jurisdiction, Peña said.

THE Dorper and Damara ewes and rams which the Provincial Government imported from Australia last year are overpriced by approximately P40 million, according to Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña.
Finding issue with the price, Peña declined to buy the sheep.
Peña said, based on information from at least three Australian livestock farmers, the Capitol's selling price per sheep is almost three to four times higher than the prevailing price per sheep in Australia, exclusive of importation costs.
He cited that Capitol purchased the ewes at A$230 per head and the rams at A$270 per head, or P10,559.32 and P12,395.70, respectively, based on an exchange rate of P45.91 to one Australian dollar.
Peña said his research revealed that suppliers from the various ranges in Australia offered between A$65 (P2,984.15) to A$100 (P4,591.00) per ewe and A$100 (P4,591.00) to A$150 (P6,886.50) per ram. He stressed that those were the prices prevailing for the period 2009-2012.
Based on the lowest quoted price and Capitol's purchase price, exclusive of importation and other costs, there is a price difference of P7,575.17 per head or about P42 million for the entire 5,544 heads of ewes and a price difference of P7,804.70 per head or about P2.3 million for the entire 296 heads of rams, stated Peña.
Based on the highest quoted price and Capitol's purchase price, exclusive of importation and other costs, there is a price difference of P5,968.32 per head or about P33 million for the entire 5,544 heads of ewes and a price difference of P5,509.20 per head or about P1.63 million for the entire 296 heads of rams, added Peña.
Peña further computed in his letter the difference between Capitol's selling price (P16,000 per ewe and P25,000 per ram) and the quotations he gathered from other Australian sheep suppliers but, this time, inclusive of importation and other costs.
He stated that there is a P50.5 million to P60 million difference between the total cost at which Capitol sold the sheep to the LGUs and the total cost based on prices prevailing in the Australian sheep market for 2009-2012, inclusive of importation and other costs.
The staggering price difference of P50.5 million to P60 million "showed how much money was spent by the government for the purchase of livestock at exorbitant prices when it could have bought the same at a much lower price tag," stated Peña who pointed out that Capitol could have secured much lower prices because its purchase was in bulk.
"How would you explain therefore this obviously irregular transaction to the people of Negros Occidental who will pay with interest the money loaned out from Landbank and used in the purchase of this pricey livestock? No other explanation could better answer this issue than to deduce from every reasonable man's conclusion that, "somebody really made profit along the way"," stated Peña in his letter to Decena.

The High Court dismissed for lack of merit the complaint filed by Magdaleno Peña against Carpio and Sereno as it held that the allegations made by the complainant have no basis.
Peña, mayor of Pulupandan, Negros Occidental, sought disciplinary action against Carpio for causing the issuance of the court's November 13, 2002 resolution that granted Union Bank's motion for reconsideration when, based on the copy of the supplemental agenda he submitted, the court merely noted the motion.
