Ex-AFP comptroller gets 6 years over assets
Elizabeth Marcelo (The Philippine Star) - April 13, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Former military comptroller Jacinto Ligot was sentenced to up to six years in prison as the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan found him guilty of six counts of perjury over his failure to declare his ownership of several properties in his statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALNs) for 1998 to 2003.

In its 74-page decision promulgated yesterday, the court’s First Division said the Office of the Ombudsman was able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Ligot “willfully and deliberately asserted a falsehood in his SALNs” by omitting the properties owned by him, his wife Erlinda and their children Paulo and Riza.

Among the properties that the court said Ligot deliberately omitted in his SALNs were the dividends he and Erlinda earned from the Armed Forces & Police Savings & Loan Association Inc. (AFPSLAI) amounting to around P5 million.
