Philippines: PhilHealth officials cleared of graft on car insurance payments made to private company

Four officials from the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) have been cleared by the Sandiganbayan Special Second Division of their nine graft charges involving the irregular payments made to a private corporation for the insurance of several government-owned vehicles in 2000 to 2001.

Senior Vice President for Management Services Reynaldo Dalma, Vice President for Finance Gregorio Rulloda, Administrative Officer V Joseph Vergara, and Administrative Officer IV Maribeth Sincuya were acquitted of their nine charges in violation of Section 3(e) of R.A. 3019, the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

They were accused of paying several amounts to BF General Insurance Company, Inc. (BFGICI) for the Comprehensive Insurance Premium of vehicles owned by PhilHealth, even though all government properties should only be insured with the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).
