Bulusan, Sorsogon Mayor Michael Guysayko has been charged for his alleged failure to remit the contributions of municipal employees to the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) from 2010 to 2011.

The Office Ombudsman filed before the Sandiganbayan 10 counts of violating the GSIS Act of 1997.

Also named as his co-accused are municipal treasurer Jasmin Garcia, municipal accountant Ramon Belleza, and municipal budget officer Marieta Negrite.
