Cebu ‘missing’ tents all accounted for – DILG
THE Department of the Interior and Local Government said Thursday that it still has to receive and see an official copy of the alleged complaint filed by the son of suspended Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia against DILG and Philippine National Police officials in connection with the tents taken down by policemen inside the Capitol grounds in Cebu City.
DILG Undersecretary Austere Panadero said he is confident that the PNP in Cebu know what they are doing and their actions are consistent with established crowd control protocols. The tents in question are reportedly all accounted for and are with the PNP for safekeeping as part of police efforts to maintain peace and order in the Capitol grounds.
He said the DILG’s role in serving the suspension of Governor Garcia is part of the department’s mandate and is pursuant to the directive of the Office of the President to implement the final and executory decision as provided in the Local Government Code.
