One year after it was discovered, the missing PHP85 million from the city government’s coffers here remain at that—missing. Laoag mayor Chevylle V. Fariñas explained that the Commission on Audit is still investigating the issue; more than a year now after former Laoag City government treasurer Ma. Elena Asuncion flew the coop by leaving the country in June of last year. Mrs. Fariñas added that she has already instructed all offices concerned to give and provide all documents pertaining to the issue. She stressed that this is to help hasten the investigation and solve the issue.
