Mayor Lino Cayetano commends anti-corruption body; vowed swift action on the arrest of 2 City Hall employees


 

Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano on Tuesday commended the office of Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica and the Philippine National Police for their entrapment operation that resulted in the arrest of 2 employees of the Local Building Office accused of extorting P10,000.

 

The mayor issued the statement as he denounced the activity of Emma Robianes and Edward Buncab, who were arrested in the entrapment operation at the Taguig City Satellite Office at the SM Aura Office Tower in BGC this afternoon, after the two allegedly extorted P10,000 from a building permit applicant.

 

“I have immediately ordered City Administrator Atty. Lyle Pasco to conduct an inquiry and coordinate with Commissioner Belgica’s office to file the necessary charges,” Mayor Lino said noting that he has already reached out to Commissioner Belgica and thanked him for his anti-corruption efforts.

 

He lauded the anti-corruption body and expressed the city’s all-out support to make sure the full extent of the law is implemented and to continue working to make Taguig a model city for good governance.

 

“The City of Taguig has always been a benchmark for good governance. We will act swiftly as we do not tolerate any form of corruption in Taguig City,” the local chief executive added.

 

Mayor Lino also reiterated that corruption has no place in Taguig. He added that those who may be engaged in corrupt activities will surely face the full force of the law.

 

The mayor called on anyone who has complaints to inform the Office of the City Mayor or the Human Resource Management Office of anybody conducting these kinds of activities.

 

“Rest assured your city government will not tolerate any of these activities. They will be held accountable,” the mayor added. ###

Mayor Lino Cayetano pinuri ang PACC; mabilis na aksyon siniguro vs 2 city hall employees

 

Pinapurihan ni Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano si Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica at ang Philippine National Police sa isinagawang entrapment operation na nagresulta sa agarang pag-aresto sa 2 empleyado ng Local Building Office na inalusahang nangongotong ng mahigit P10,000.

 

Sinabi ito ni Mayor Lino habang kinondena ang umano’y iligal na gawain nina Emma Robianes at Edward Buncab, na inaresto sa Taguig City Satellite Office sa SM Aura Office Tower nito sa BGC Martes ng hapon. Nanghingi umano ang dalawa ng P10,000 mula sa isang building permit applicant.

 

“Akin nang inatasan si City Administrator Atty. Lyle Pasco na magdagawa ng imbestigasyon at mag-coordinate sa opisina ni PACC Commissioner Belgica upang maisampa ang kaukulang kaso,” saad ni Mayor Lino. Pinasalamatan din niya si Commissioner Belgica sa pagsawata ng mga iligal na gawain sa bansa.

 

Dagdag pa ng mayor na all-out ang suporta ng Taguig sa kampanya laban sa katiwalian upang matulungan ang syudad na maging isang modelo bilang tagataguyod ng good governance.

 

“Ang Taguig ay may pamantayan sa pagiging ehemplo ng good governance. Kami ay kikilos upang hindi mabigyan ng puwang ang sino mang nais na magsagawa ng iligal o katiwalian sa syudad,” wika pa ng alkalde.

 

Siniguro rin ni Mayor Lino na walang lugar ang mga tiwali sa kanyang pamahalaan at nangako na haharap sa kaso ang matatagpuang gumagawa ng anomalya sa pamahalaang lungsod.

 

Hinikayat din ni mayor na magsumite ng complaints sa Office of the City Mayor o sa Human Resource Management Office ang sino mang makakakita o makaka-alam ng mga maling gawain ng mga empleyado o opisyales sa Taguig.

 

“Rest assured na ang city government ay hindi pinapayagan o hinahayaan ang mga katiwalian sa syudad. Sigurado na haharap sa kaso ang mahuhili na lumalabag sa batas,” saad pa ni Mayor Lino. ###
