Ombudsman releases order to suspend Valencia City mayor
Before anything else, I’d like to emphasize that I don’t have the full details about this controversy just yet but one thing is for sure — it’s true that the Ombudsman has released an order for Bukidnon Governor Alex Calingasan to suspend Valencia City Mayor Leandro Catarata. Various reliable sources have confirmed this with Bukidnon Online. Although again, I must emphasize that I do not have a copy of the suspension order just yet. I’m working on getting one, though.
The reason for the suspension: MISCONDUCT.
Now the question is — will Governor Calingasan follow the order? And when?
