MANILA, Philippines – Sandiganbayan’s second split rallied Thursday’s grafting cases against Information and Communication Technology Secretary Gregorio Honasan II stemming from his alleged misuse of P30m from his Development Assistance Priority Fund (PDAF) ), also known as the pig barrel, when he was a senator in 2012.

The anti-graft court agreed with Honasan that the evidence presented by the prosecution against him was weak and gave demurrer to the former senator.

The court also gave fraud to the evidence of National Council for Muslim Affairs (NCMF) officials Galay Makalingan, Mehol Sadain, Auroran Aragon-Mabang, Fedelina Aldanese and Olga Galido.

Sandiganbayan ordered in August 2017 the arrest of Honasan, along with seven NCMF officials and his political affairs and project coordinator Michael Benjamin, on two grafting charges in connection with the multi-billion pound barrel fraud.

Honasan then denied the allegations against him, saying he was “completely innocent”.

Honasan was accused of giving P29.1 million to a dubious NGO and NCMF for implementing programs and projects that would benefit Muslim Filipinos in Metro Manila and Zambales.

An investigation by the Ombudsman’s Office revealed that the Department of Budget and Management issued P30 million as part of Honasan’s PDAF with the NCMF as the implementing agency in April 2012. – with a report from STAR / Elizabeth Marcelo
