DILG Secretary Mar Roxas said thank you to Makati Mayor Junjun Binay for leaving the Makati City Hall and for obeying the law.
The Secretary said that the authorities will not prevent Mayor Junjun Binay from entering the City Hall in case the Court of Appeals issues a (TRO) Temporary Restraining Order.
Secretary Mar Roxas further said that he was happy that justice was served and that the law was upheld.
The Ombudsman, a government office that prosecutes those government officials and employees who violates the law, issued a suspension order against Mayor Binay for allegedly committing graft and corruption.
The Mayor refused to leave the city hall and ask the Court of Appeals to issue a temporary restraining order but the authorities said that until a temporary restraining order is issued by the court, Mayor Binay must obey the suspension order.
This is the second suspension order given against Mayor Binay during his term.
The Normal services given by the Makati City Hall are expected to be back to normal with the Mayor stepping down temporarily from office.
