Bulan mayor suspended anew

BULAN, Sorsogon—Controversial town mayor Marnellie B. Robles has been suspended again, this time by the Office of the Ombudsman.

Suspended mayor Marnellie B. Robles of Bulan, Sorsogon
Said suspension was over an administrative offense which she allegedly committed while serving as vice mayor in 2011.

Earlier, Robles was meted a 90-day suspension order by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for "grave abuse of authority, oppression, and gross negligence in relation to the performance of her office."

Recently, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Gerard Mosquera found Robles "administratively liable for Simple Misconduct and violation of Sec. 5(a) of Republic Act No. 6713."

Robles, according to the order, was "meted the penalty of suspension from office without pay for six months, pursuant to Section 10, Rule III, Administrative Order No. 07, as amended by Administrative Order No. 17 in relation to Section 25 of Republic Act 6770."

The case stemmed from a complaint filed in 2011 by then Bulan mayor Helen De Castro when Robles, then the vice mayor, falsely represented herself to be the acting municipal mayor and approved a town council resolution soliciting fund from a party-list for the construction of public infrastructure.

On August 27, Department of Interior and Local Government Officer-in-Charge Regional Director Elouisa T. Pastor sent Robles an order to "cease and desist from performing [her] duties as municipal mayor until such time that the period of suspension expires."

Earnest efforts by BICOL STANDARD to get the side of Robles have proven futile, as she could not be reached at press time.

Meantime, Patricia Lim Guran has taken oath as acting mayor  before Punong Barangay Salve Valeriano of Zone 4, Bulan, Sorsogon, while number one councilor Ronnie Gigantone was sworn in as acting vice mayor.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
