DAET, CNorte – A petition for certiorari, prohibition and mandamus, with prayer for the issuance of temporary restraining order is currently being heard in the sala of RTC Judge Arniel Dating of Branch 41 in connection with the 60-day suspension order against Vinzons  town mayor Agnes Ang.

It will be recalled that last March 3, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Norte approved a resolution recommending the suspension of the said town executive, after a complaint was filed against her by businessman Gabriel Cereno.

The said complaint stemmed from a controversy regarding the issuance of two permits to operate a cockpit in this municipality. Cereno maintained that this is a patent violation of PD 449, otherwise known as the Cockfighting Decree.

What exacerbated the resolution of the administrative complaint was the alleged attitude of Atty. Roberto Santos, the lawyer who represented Ang, in the hearing conducted by the Sangguniang Panlungsod. Allegedly, majority of the members of the SP were slighted when Santos made it appear during the deliberation that they are ignorant or do not know how to handle administrative cases.
