Graft Complaint Filed Against Bistek, Two Others Over Solar Power Project

A complaint for graft has been filed against former Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista, and two others before the Office of the Ombudsman involving the reportedly unauthorized 25-million-peso solar power system project.

The Quezon City government, represented by City Legal Department head Atty. Carlo Lopez Austria filed the complaint for violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act against Bautista, former City Administrator Aldrin Cuña, and former City Engineer Joselito Cabungcal.

“It is clear…that the respondents, in conspiracy with one another, violated the law when they acted with manifest partiality, evident bad faith, and gross inexcusable negligence when they entered into the contract without any authorization from the City Council and released public funds in violation of the… contract,” the complaint read.
