No less than his own party mates charged former Ating Koop party-list Rep. Isidro Lico with a P75-million graft and malversation case before the Office of the Ombudsman.

In its complaint, Ating Koop alleged that Lico and his co-conspirators “engaged the party in some activities outside of its limited concern, all with the intent to make money from the public funds allocated to our office in the House of Representatives.”

According to the complaint, Lico was able to purchase a new Toyota Fortuner SUV for his personal use three months after he assumed office in January 2011 with a salary of P56,000 a month. The monthly amortization for the vehicle is P96,643.

In 2011 and 2012, Lico was able to buy a brand new Isuzu Sportivo AUV and a Toyota Innova, respectively, the payments for which the complainants claim came from “kickbacks” from some government projects.

Federico Pineda, Ating Koop’s first nominee and one of the complainants, said it’s the “moral obligation to the public to make it known to the public some scores pertinent to public funds so much so that the (Janet Lim) Napoles scandal is really just the tip of the iceberg.”
