There is no “Suspension Order” from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Aklan against Malay Mayor John Yap.
This clarification and declaration was given by the DILG Aklan Director, John Ace Azarcon in an interview by Yes FM News Center on Thursday afternoon, April 04.
The statement was in relation to the question of the public in Boracay about the circulating news that apparently the Mayor of Malay and Boracay was suspended.
According to Azarcon, their office did not receive any complaint against the Mayor that merits the issuance of suspension order on the Chief Executive.
Nevertheless, Azarcon was allegedly not certain if there were complaints made against Yap in other agencies of the government.
He added that if there is a suspension issued by a court or Obudsman against an official of a town, it will be impossible that a copy of the order will not be given to the DILG.
He further added that as of press time, there was no suspension order.
The Mayor was earlier reported to have allegedly been on frequent vacation which was immediately clarified by Malay Administrator Godofredo Sadiasa.
Sadiasa said that it is the right of the Mayor and the Mayor had not neglected his obligation to the town. He also said that some of the Mayor’s trips were Official trips.
