The Supreme Court has suspended an Olongapo regional trial court judge after allegations of attempted bribery, inefficiency and a string of other offences surfaced.
Judge Normal Pamintuan of Olongapo RTC Branch 73 has been suspended indefinitely on various complaints of bribery.
The high court has ordered the judge to comment on the numerous complains and explain to them why no actions should be taken against him. The court also ordered Pamintuan to explain why 16 cases were left undecided after the mandated period of time to resolve them had passed long ago.
The Supreme Court Information Office did not elaborate on the complaints and allegations against the judge.
