ORDERED ARRESTED. Former National Police chief Avelino "Sonny" Razon Jr and 32 of his co-accused is ordered arrested for malversation charges

The Sandiganbayan on Wednesday, August 28, issued an arrest warrant for the former Philippine National Police chief Avelino “Sonny” Razon Jr and 32 others for graft and malversation charges. The warrants were based on a criminal case filed by the Office of the Ombudsman on July 11 over the anomalous repair and maitenance of several light armored vehicles (LAVs) in 2007. Razon’s co-accused are former and incumbent PNP officials and several private individuals, including two former Philippine National Police comptrollers: Geary Barias and Eliseo de la Paz. The warrant was based on findings by the Deputy Ombudsman for the Military and Other Law Enforcement Offices that Razon requested for a supplement budget for the repair of the LAVs over what had already been requested. The respondents were charged for graft and for malversation through falsification over this anomalous transaction.
