My father was found guilty of simple neglect of duty in the administrative case regarding unfinished projects, sanctioned with one(1) month suspension without pay.
The projects were unfinished(my father was then connected with the provincial government) because the then governor(now a congressman, and complainant) ordered its suspension and eventually, forgotten.
May father is now Charged with Sec.3(e) of R.A. 3019.
How can this be? He was only found to be guilty of simple neglect in the admin case and now, charged with the criminal case which requires Gross inexcusable negligence as one of its elements?
The other co-accused were actually found guilty of gross negligence by the ombudsman in the admin case.
Any help will be eternally appreciated.
