SURIGAO CITY — The Samsonite bag containing P1.6 million in payroll money for the Del Carmen Municipal Government employees and 15 other passengers of the ill-fated mv Leonida II are still nowhere to be found a day after divers temporarily called off their search.
A bodyguard and aide of Del Carmen Mayor Arlencita Navarro named Rudy Celeste said the Samsonite bag that contained the payroll money was among the cargoes brought along by the late mayor last November 25.
Celeste said the payroll money was withdrawn from a Surigao City Bank last November 24. “Since there is no bank at Del Carmen, we usually withdrew or encash government check here in Surigao City,” Celeste explained.
There were no explanations so far as to why the Philippine Coast Guard service, search and rescue ship BRPS Romblon left Surigao City right after the body of Del Carmen Mayor Arlencita Navarro and two others were found by divers trapped inside the sunken ferry last December 2.
Relatives of the missing passengers wondered why the search was stopped after Navarro’s remains and two others were found right at the sunken ferry. Divers found the sunken mv Leonida II at the bottom of the sea off Punta Cili Point and Halian Islands about 316 feet deep.
