Rep. Ecleo convicted of graft; new auditing rules pushed

AROUND 44 government leaders from across the country manifested support for cult leader Ruben Ecleo Jr. who is facing arrest after the Supreme Court affirmed his conviction on graft charges decided by the Sandiganbayan.

In a manifesto, the officials said that the case is an “eye-opener which calls for the revision of audit rules in order to protect well-meaning but often misunderstood heads of local government units.”

Mayor Nelson Garcia of Dumanjug town, southwest Cebu, is among those who signed the manifesto in favor of Ecleo, leader of the Philippine Benevolent Missionary Association (PBMA) and congressman of the lone district of Dinagat Islands in Surigao del Norte.

But prosecution lawyers in the parricide case against Ecleo requested Cebu City Regional Trial Court Judge Soliver Peras of Branch 10 to promptly cancel Ecleo’s bail and put him back in jail.

“Plaintiffs feel the accused is just playing around with the considerate feelings of the honorable presiding judge,” the private prosecutors said in a pleading./REPORTER ADOR VINCENT S. MAYOL/Cebu Daily News

am not sure if i'm reading this right...44 officials signed a manifesto...yet calls for a revision of audit rules...
So then the SC is wrong (and these public officials are right) so why change auditing rules when these are established check and balances since day one? not unless account payables are now receivables, etc. - plus is minus and vice-versa!! and if the SC is right, i can't fathom the intestinal fortitude of 44 local officials to favor Ecleo? is this how Philippine politics perceive public accountability? which is which now?!!
