The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) has issued show cause orders to officials of over 1,100 barangays for their alleged failure to help in the Manila Bay cleanup, an official said yesterday. DILG Undersecretary for barangay affairs Martin Diño said they gave officials of 1,129 barangays to explain why they should not be held liable before the Office of the Ombudsman for not participating in the rehabilitation of the Manila Bay. “If we are not satisfied with their answer, we will file the case with the ombudsman,” he said in Filipino in an interview over dzMM. These barangays are situated in Bulacan, Bataan and Pampanga in Central Luzon, Rizal, Laguna and Cavite in Region 4-A and Metro Manila.
