Malilipot, Albay, [04.26.18] – An unauthorized user of an identification card and purchase booklets of Senior Citizen I.D Card using an address of “San Francisco, Malilipot, Albay” was confirmed to be a non-resident of the place, San Francisco village head, Pedro Lorenzo said over the week end.
Reached for comment, Punong Barangay Pedro Lorenzo told www.philexaminer.com that the person named Harly H. Rañosa whose name appeared on the identification card is not a resident of their village and is not a bona fide member of the Barangay Senior Citizens Association of San Francisco.
“This type of surname is not from this place and since birth I had never encountered this person here in San Francisco – since I was elected three terms as the village chief of our place I do not also recall in any instance that he is a registered member of San Francisco Senior Citizens organization,” Lorenzo said.
An alleged spurious identification card [not shown in photo] and purchase booklets was provided in a photo copied form by the source who requested anonymity: carries the name of Harly H. Rañosa, with OSCA ID Number 5730 and was issued on 04-09-17 at Malilipot, Albay.
The said identification card also bears the signatures of Mr. Geronimo B. Bunao and Mayor Cenon B. Volante. The identification card was pre-signed and is assigned to a bona fide member was purported taken in a deceitful manner, the source explained.
Punong Barangay Lorenzo’s interview has provided a proof to the controversial issues about the identification holder of the above mentioned purchase booklet and identification card is illegally obtained as his residence and membership are both spurious.
The “Harly H. Rañosa” episode is the second issue that www.philexaminer.com is being pursued following the interview with Mr. Geronimo ”Gerry” B. Bunao, the head of the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs – Malilipot who spoke of undue political interventions from some elected municipal councilors on running the programs of OSCA –Malilipot.
Among the issue pointed out by Mr. Gerry Bunao is about the printing and issuance of the senior citizens identification card that is being allegedly questioned by some town’s politicians.
The matter made Mr. Bunao to request Mayor Cenon B. Volante intervention to investigate on the matter and to be able to his detractors to present the burden of proof in the proper forum.
