Mayor Abby Binay Gives Warning Against Fixers and Gov’t Employees of Makati
Makati City Mayor Abby Binay gives a warning against fixers including local government employees in the said city.
Following the arrest of two city hall employees and an individual involved in fixing activities on January 31, Binay issued a warning. Makati is not a haven for swindlers, fraudsters, or thieves, according to Binay.
Wilfreda de Leon, 59, an Administrative Assistant II; Merlin Balbuena, 46, a Sanitary Section employee of the Makati Health Department; and Aisheen Mana-ay, 27, were arrested by Makati City police for under-the-table processing in exchange for a sufficient amount and the release of various government-issued documents such as business permits and health certificates.
The three accused are charged with violating Republic Act 11032, also known as the 2018 Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act. Binay expressed gratitude to Makati City Police Chief P/Col. Edward Cutiyog and the entire local police force for their prompt response, which resulted in the arrest of the three suspects.
“Nawa ay magsilbi itong babala sa mga fixer sa loob at labas ng pamahalaang lungsod. Hindi po kami titigil sa panghuhuli at pagpaparusa ng mga tiwaling kawani at opisyal sa city,” said Binay.
At the same time, Binay expressed gratitude to local government personnel for their integrity in serving the public as well as Makati citizens and expressed hope that they would not be swayed by money provided by unscrupulous individuals, based on the report.
“Gusto kong mapanatiling malinis ang rekord ng aking administrasyon laban sa korapsyon at mga maanomalyang transaksiyon. Hindi ko hahayaang sirain ng iilang tao ang pinaghirapan at pinagsikapan ng mas maraming lingkod-bayan sa loob nang maraming taon,” added binay.
