In a press conference last Friday, April 10, Sarmiento said the legal team of Puentevella has filed a motion for reconsideration and 2 motions to travel abroad last April 6. The latter will be for the mayor to travel to Las Vegas for the Pacquiao-Mayweather mega bout on May 2 (May 3, Philippine time) where he was invited by the Saranggani Congressman to be with his team.

The other is a scheduled trip to Singapore set for Friday next week, and these will be “more or less approved”, said Sarmiento.

He added that the motions were heard in the morning of April 10. The court gave the office of the prosecutor 5 days to file their comments, and the hearing for the motion was set on May 14, 2015, making the original arraignment date to be called off by the Sandiganbayan.
