Mayor Sabili to Ralph Recto: Stop interfering with Lipa politics

Aug 7, 2018 @ 14:31

Lipa City Mayor Meynard Sabili called on Senator Ralph Recto to refrain from interfering with the city’s affairs.

The Lipa politiko’s remark came following the Office of the Ombudsman’s suspension order against him for Oppression and Conduct Prejudicial to the Best Interest of Service.

Sabili said Recto was supposedly “pressuring” the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to serve the suspension order.

“Ako ay umaapela kay Senador. Sana naman po Senador pabayaan nyo na ang Lipa. Hayaan nyo na po yung natititra ko pang 9 na buwan na paglilingkod, huwag na nyo i-pressure kung sino man, kasi hindi po nagkakaroon ng katarungan kapag nagagamit ng politiko,” he said.

Recto denied Sabili’s allegation.

“I do not get involved with local issues. Have not spoken to anyone from DILG re Sabili suspension order,” he said.
