Graft Charges, Arrest and Acquittal
On April 6, 2016, Sandiganbayan Fifth Division issued an arrest warrant against Ejercito and four other government officials, in connection with allegations on misuse of funds during his term as San Juan City mayor. The said case involved the purchase of PhP 2.1 million worth of firearms using calamity funds. It is alleged that Ejercito approved the purchase in April 2008 despite the city not being under a state of calamity.
On February 20, 2017, the Sandiganbayan affirmed the acquittal from graft of Senator Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito over the alleged anomalous use of calamity funds for the purchase of high-powered firearms when he was San Juan City mayor.
