MANILA — Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay on Tuesday criticized the Department of Interior and Local Government for failing to follow the Court of Appeal’s temporary restraining order on the mayor’s suspension order.
Binay questioned how the DILG interpreted the Ombudsman’s six-month suspension order.
“Kung meron man po silang mga katanungan itanong po nila ito sa korte. Wag po silang sila-sila lang mismo ang nag-iinterpret ng ruling ng Court of Appeals,” Binay said in a press conference.
(If they have questions, they should ask the court. They should not have interpreted the ruling of the Court of Apeals.)
Binay was earlier suspended for his alleged involvement in the overpriced construction of the Makati City Hall parking building.
“Ang nakakalungkot ay parang may martial law dito sa Makati… Kailangan ho bang umikot-ikot si Col. Jamias na pinalilibutan ng mga pulis na may dalang armalite?”
(What is more deppressing is that there seems to be a martial law here in Makati. Does Col. Jamias need to roam around and order the place to be surrounded by policemen holding armalite?)
