Mina Pellejo, former Negros Occidental Comprehensive Health Program Division officer-in-charge, and lawyers Roxenne Sumanting, Ernie Magaspag and Ariel Cuaycong, and bookkeeper 3 Warlito Butalon of the Provincial Legal Office, are still under preventive suspension pending the resolution of investigations against them.
All five have denied the allegations against them.
Pellejo, Sumanting and Cuaycong have elected for formal hearings, Butalon submitted a position paper, while Magaspag has not submitted an answer, Nellas said.*
