Mayor Gualberto urges supporters not to lose hope after suspension

0

San Fernando City Mayor Dong Gualberto on March 1 called on his supporters not to lose hope after the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) handed him a 90-day preventive suspension due to the alleged misuse of public funds in the rehabilitation of the city’s plaza.

The Court of Appeals’ (CA) earlier reversed the Ombudsman’s dismissal order against him.

“Pansamantala man akong bababa sa pwesto upang respetuhin ang pagsisiyasat ng hukuman ay huwag sana tayong panghinaan ng loob at mawalan ng pag-asa,” Gualberto said.

He said he will challenge DILG’s suspension order before the Sandiganbayan.

“Muli po tayong maninindigan para sa katotohanan at katarungan. Ayon sa ating legal na payo, tayo ay naghain ng apela sa Sandiganbayan upang muling suriin ang pagpapataw ng preventive suspension na ito,” Gualberto said.
