MANILA (PNA) -- Dinas, Zamboanga del Sur Mayor Wilfredo Asoy is facing multiple charges for malversation of public funds, failure to render accounts and violation of Section 3(e) of Republic Act No. 3019, or the "Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act".

This after the Office of the Ombudsman (Ombudsman) indicted Asoy before the Sandiganbayan for failing to liquidate PHP2.4 million in government funds.

Records showed that the PHP2.4 million was spent to buy supplies, gasoline, construction materials, travel expenses, intelligence fund, etc. and that as of December 2011, the government funds remain unaccounted for.

Asoy faces 30 counts of failure to render accounts and one count each of malversation and violation of Section 3(e) of RA 3019 before the Sandiganbayan.
