A head officer of the Bureau of Corrections in the Philippines has been charged for allegedly not paying contractual obligations in connection with the biometrics clearance system of the National Bureau of Investigation, according to a report by ABS-CBS News.
Rafael Marcos Ragos was accused of deliberately withholding payment for the services provided by Realtime Data Management Services (RDMSI) to the National Bureau of Investigation from July to September.
In charges filed on December 13, 2012, RDMSI alleges that Ragos was in violation of several laws, including the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.
In addition to the charges, RDMSI sought a preventive suspension and Ragos’ dismissal.
RDMSI claims that Ragos used his office for personal interest, and discriminated against RDMSI when he made “the unjustified refusal to release the payments of the billings of RDMSI.”
