What Happened To Ex-Bataan Mayor And Cedric Lee? Case Details
The Sandiganbayan anti-graft court has convicted businessman Cedric Lee and former mayor Angel Peliglorio Jr. of Mariveles, Bataan, of misusing public funds.
Their complaint involves the alleged irregular disbursement of P23.47 million public funds in 2005 for a “ghost” project.
The Sandiganbayan Third Division’s verdict, issued by Associate Justice Bernelito Fernandez, sentenced Lee and Peliglorio to 12 to 18 years in prison and imposed a fine equal to the sum involved, or P23,470,500.
They are also permanently forbidden from running for public office.
Apart from the self-serving assertions, Sandiganbayan emphasized that there was no breakdown of the designs and studies he (Lee) reported, nor was there a contract proving he outsourced and paid for other services.
However, they were acquitted on a separate charge of violating Section 3(e) of Republic Act No. 3019, often known as the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, because the prosecution failed to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The allegations were brought against the two in 2015. Peliglorio, the then-mayor of Mariveles, was accused at the time of allowing Lee to receive P23.47 million as an advance payment for the construction of the Mariveles Public Market. Lee’s company had secured the project contract.
Despite receiving money, the project did not even reach the groundbreaking stage.
Where Is Cedric Lee Now?
The anti-graft court’s Third Division condemned Lee and Peliglorio to 12 to 18 years in prison in a 54-page judgment written by Associate Justice Bernelito Fernandez.
The Sandiganbayan was convinced of a conspiracy that resulted in the misappropriation of funds, despite Lee’s claim during the trial that P19.442 million of the total amount was advance payment for services he delivered, such as the full architectural design of the market.
The court noted that nothing in Lee’s evidence demonstrated that his company, Izumo, was entitled to a lump-sum payment.
