MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the Ombudsman maintains that there are sufficient grounds to try former Solicitor General Agnes Devanadera for graft over her supposed participation in an allegedly anomalous P6.1-billion settlement deal with a private firm in 2006.
In a 14-page opposition paper filed before the Sandiganbayan's First Division, state prosecutors urged the court to deny “for utter lack of merit” Devandera's motion for judicial determination of probable cause with a prayer to dismiss the case.
