Charge to politics, says Bambi of 2 graft cases against father

Correspondent .

FORMER mayor Vicente Emano has kept mum about the two sets of administrative and criminal graft cases filed against him but his son, Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano, yesterday charged all these to partisan politics.

No explanation was given about city hall’s 2013 deals with a “non-government organization” linked to the pork barrel scam, and for the use of the disaster risk reduction management funds at a time when there was no calamity. The funds were released shortly before the elder Emano stepped down as the city’s mayor.

But Gov. Emano assured that his father would face his accuser and answer the two complaints filed with the Office of the Ombudsman by former city hall “job order” worker Ernesto Molina, the same man who earlier submitted his complaint to the ombudsman against the governor and his brother-in-law President Elipe pertaining to the management of the capitol-run sports complex.

“The election is fast approaching,” said the younger Emano, adding that, to him, the Molina cases all boil down to politics.

Gov. Emano added: “Bisan tuod ug tataw ang politikanhong motibo sa pagsang-at ug kaso batok sa akong amahan tungod kay hapit na man ang election, ug bisan pag muagi kini sa legal nga proseso, piho niya kining atubangon aron ang sinalimbongang mata sa hustisya maoy mulimpyu sa iyang konsensya.”
