89 Barangay Captain suspended over SAP anomalies

 At least 89 Barangay Chief have been placed on a 6-month preventive suspension by the Office of the Ombudsman, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) said in a report.

“Ang katiwalian ay walang puwang sa ating pamahalaan lalong-lalo pa ngayong panahon ng pandemya,” Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said as quoted on ABS-CBN report.

The Office of the Ombudsman acted on the complaints filed by the DILG.

 “The evidence on record shows that the guilt of these punong barangays is strong and the charges against them involve Serious Dishonesty, Grave Misconduct, Abuse of Authority and Conduct Prejudicial to the Best Interest of the Service which may warrant removal from the service,” the office of the Ombudsman said.

Out of 447 suspects, 211 are elected local and barangay officials, 104 are appointed barangay officials and 132 are their civilian co-conspirators.

The suspension orders are urged to implement to local government units of those Barangay chief immediately.

Criminal cases were also filed against 447 individuals for violating Republic Act 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act), RA 11469 (Bayanihan Act I), and RA 6713 (Code of Conduct of Government Officials and Employees), among others, again in relation to the implementation of the Social Amelioration.
