1,000 barangays in hot water
MetadataShow full item record
Heads are expected to roll as the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is zeroing in on 1,000 of the 5,714 barangays who have defied orders to strictly enforce environmental laws in their respective turfs along the Manila Bay Watershed Area. In a serious bid to rehabilitate the Manila Bay Watershed Area, DILG Undersecretary for Barangay Operations Martin Diño said cases will be filed against erring barangay chairmen before the Office of the Ombudsman who will fail to explicitly provide any justifiable reason for their non-compliance with the DILG order. In a press conference on Thursday, Martin Diño vowed to issue show-cause orders to the defiant barangay chairmen, saying these 1,000 villages comprise the initial batch of erring barangays.
