Ex-CamSur mayor Decena faces graft raps for failure to return vehicle


Former Bula, Camarines Sur mayor Benjamin Decena has been charged before the Sandiganbayan for allegedly failing to return his service vehicle.

The Office of the Ombudsman filed the case after finding probable cause to indict him graft.

Under the case, Decena allegedly failed to return his service vehicle, a Mazda Bongo, in 2013 when his term as mayor ended.

The Ombudsman said this caused damage and prejudice to the government as he misappropriated the property for his personal use and benefit.

The Ombudsman has already recommended that Decena post a bail bond amounting to P50,000 for his provisional liberty.
