Gov. Tallado served with 3rd suspension order

DAET, Camarines Norte, October 18, 2016 (Bicol Standard)-- A third suspension order was slapped against Gov. Edgardo Tallado by the Office of the Ombudsman, this time for Disgraceful and Immoral Conduct.


The complainant is Jose Banal, who filed said complaint on November 14, 2014.

At issue was the alleged sex video and nude photos of Tallado and his alleged mistress.

Last Monday, DILG Region V Director Elouisa Pastor personally served the suspension order but the governor was not around.

The said order was received by the governor's staff who claimed that they were instructed by the governor to receive the same.

It would be recalled that the previous suspension orders were for Oppression and Grave Abuse of Authority, followed by one for Grave Misconduct.

Meanwhile, Atty. Marcelo Adan Botor, speaking for Tallado said that the governor will issue a statement later because there are other things they are presently considering.

Vice Governor Jonah Pimentel will serve as the Acting Governor while Board Member Mike Canlas will be the Acting Vice Governor of the province.
