14 PNP personnel dismissed by the Office of the Ombudsman

The Office of the Ombudsman confirmed to the media recently that it has stood pat on its decision on dismissing 14 PNP officials and personnel for their involvement in the PNP helicopters procurement case. The Ombudsman added that six others were also suspended for six months because of this. 

The Order was signed on November 19, 2012 even if Motions for Reconsideration were filed. These motions were denied, according to the Office of the Ombudsman, due to the failure of presenting new evidence that will materialy affect the decision. 

The case arose from the Philippine National Police's helicopter purchase amounting to P104, 985, 000 in the years 2009 and 2010 from MAPTRA - a company that did not possess the financial and technical eligibility required by Philippine law.
