Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the City Council has declared a judge from Cabanatuan City persona non grata.
The Baguio politiko said he asked the City Council to declare Judge Nelson Largo persona on grata after the latter subpoenaed a traffic enforcer who issued him a ticket for illegal parking in October.
Largo said the traffic enforcer confiscated his license plate without due process.
He then ordered the traffic enforcer to appear in his court on November 29 to explain why he should not be cited for indirect contempt.
“This unprofessional and arrogant display of judicial power by a judge to bully those implementing the law, if not rectified by the Supreme Court, would certainly have a chilling effect on our traffic enforcers, not to mention its other adverse effects to the public,” Magalong said.
