Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson and Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz (l-r)* 

Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said he does not believe Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz did anything wrong. 

Lacson on  Wednesday, June 5, was reacting to the Ombudsman’s  ruling  suspending Diaz for six months without pay for  engaging in   the private practice of law that was “in conflict of interest” with  his job. 

“I personally believe that he has done nothing wrong,” Lacson said.       

Diaz on Tuesday said   he is filing a motion for reconsideration to the Ombudsman’s ruling. 

Also suspended for the same period is Executive Assistant II Chery Sheil Valenzuela, Provincial Bids and Awards secretary. 

Lacson said he was informed by Diaz about the motion for reconsideration and the way he understands it nothing is final yet. 

“I have to ask him what are the legal options still left,” Lacson said.*
