Rehashed and rotten, old lies!
This was the reaction of Mayor Jimmy Deleña of Presentacion, Camarines Sur over the alleged plunder charges hurled against former House Speaker Arnulfo Fuentebella and his wife, incumbent Sagñay, Camarines Sur Mayor Evelyn Fuentebella by a certain Danilo Hassan the other day.
In a statement, Deleña said that charges need not be dignified for the people already know the truth and official records speak for themselves.
“All allegations had already been dismissed in court for lack of merit. They are being raked up and spiced up every election by Fuentebella’s political foes,” he added.
Deleña hinted that a perennial political critic of the Fuentebellas is behind this malicious and sinister move.
Fuentebella refused to comment on what he called “latest political antics of his nefarious bashers.” “Napanood na yan. They are nothing but ridiculous and amusing,” he stated.
Fuentebella appealed for the elevation of election issues from muckraking to discussion of high-level issues that concern the welfare of the people.
“Let us exercise political maturity. Our people call for it,” he continued.
Fuentebella was referring to the charges filed before the Office of the Ombudsman by Zero Tolerance.Org, allegedly a grassroots group.
