Graft case against Rickets continues

rickettsThe graft case filed against actor and former Optical Media Board Chairman Ronnie Ricketts continues at the Sandiganbayan.

According to Sandiganbayan 4th Division, the court finds probable cause in the complaint against the said actor and already ordered the arrest of Ricketts.  The actor posted bail immediately.

The graft case of Ricketts stemmed when the former OMB chair ordered the return to the owner of the confiscated pirated DVD and VCDs in 2010.

However, the Anti-Graft court said that though Ricketts already posted bail of 30 thousand pesos, the court no longer needs to issue another arrest warrant.

On July 23, the court set Ricketts’ arraignment.

Meanwhile, there’s enough evidence to press charges against Ricketts’ co-accused, OMB Executive Director Cyrus Paul Valenzuela, OMB Enforcement and Inspection Division Chief Manuel Mangubat, EID Investigation Agent Joseph Arnaldo, and EID Computer Operator Glenn Perez.
