CEBU CITY—Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia and her family are preparing to spend Christmas inside her office at the Capitol where she has been staying since Wednesday following the implementation of the Malacañang order that suspended her for six months.

She told reporters that she had to remain at the Capitol because the Court of Appeals had not issued a temporary restraining order (TRO), which they expected to be issued on Friday.

“Well, I said, I will stay here, so I am still here,” said Garcia.

Garcia filed a petition for review with a prayer for a TRO to stop the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) from implementing her suspension order for grave abuse of authority.

The suspension stemmed from the complaint of usurpation of authority filed by then Vice Gov. Greg Sanchez in 2010. Sanchez died of cancer a year later.

Garcia will be accompanied by her family and allies who have been keeping her company while she is holed up at her office.

House Deputy Speaker Pablo Garcia said that if his daughter opted to stay at the Capitol, they would be with her. “Of course, I am saddened and this was handed down during Christmas time,” said the elder Garcia.

“As a father and for the rest of the family, we have to support our daughter,” he added.

Acting Gov. Agnes Magpale, however, said she was concerned about the rising cost of water and power at the governor’s office.

She said she might charge them for electric and water bills since they had agreed to be frugal in spending government funds because contrary to the claims of Garcia, the province was not economically strong although it had a lot of assets.

“We are exercising super maximum tolerance,” she said. “We should have charged them with rental, electricity and use of air-conditioning.”

Representative Garcia, however, said his daughter still had a right to have an office being the governor of Cebu.

“Only her functions were suspended but she is still entitled to an office,” he said.

The Garcia family has been with the governor since the order was issued on Wednesday.

Among those who accompanied Garcia were her mother, retired Judge Esperanza Garcia and two brothers— Dumanjug Mayor Nelson Garcia and Barili Vice Mayor Marlon Garcia.

There was  no sign that Garcia was packing up as her belongings were  intact.

Security guards were seen guarding her office round the clock.

Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, the president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, visited Garcia at 8 p.m. on Friday. The two had a close-door meeting for an hour.

Palma declined to disclose what they talked about because he promised Garcia that their conversation would remain confidential.

“My request is that we will all pray for a peaceful resolution of all of this because it affects our province,” Palma told reporters before boarding his car.

“There are many issues that we talked about … which [we] prayed would be resolved in a peaceful manner and that everything will be resolved for the good of our people,” he added.

The operation of provincial government’s TV channel, Sugbo TV, and its monthly publication, Sugbo News, was shut down at 5 p.m. on Friday on orders of Magpale pending review of its programs. With a report from Jhunnex Napallacan, Inquirer Visayas

    Hey Garcia, how about a concert with star singers and snacks for all on Christmas eve. Make a festival for Cebuanos before your days is over. Who knows maybe they all become too enjoyed to stay with you forever more ……

  • Barangkuag

    Ahh..this family. They think they own the province. No shame at all!!! 

    • batangpaslit

      sino ang pinalitan nila bilang governor, congressman, and mayor?
      diba sila-sila lang
      nag rotate lang sa dalawang pamilya: Osmena, Garcia, nay tatlo, pag isama ang Durano

  • Hey_Dudes

    Nice going Gwendolyn  how does it feel being the star of the show?  Only thing is, the youths are watching and what you are doing is not a good role model to them.  Ano yan – matira ang matibay?  As for this hypocrite bishop, sure you can and must keep whatever you discussed with Gwendolyn confidential.  Do not be like that JBC psychiatrist recently fired for not holding confidential matters confidential.

    parang ang lugar ng Cebu ay nahahati lamang sa dalaang pamilya: Garcia, at Osmena.

    CION: “Wala sanang problema kung magkakasunod na uupo sa iisang puesto, pero ang kaso ng angkan ng Garcia, eh sabay-sabay silang nanunungkulan bilang tongressman, gobernador, mayor, etc. Onli enda pilipins !!!”

    The political enemies must be destroyed at all costs. The General and the his henchmen will do anything to prevent the opposition to prepare for the next election. The present dispensation will invent a lot of “crimes” to accuse them and remove them from office while their own men who are as guilty as their opponents are being tolerated. Such is the curse of politics in our country and no man yet has governed righteously including the present president. He is like the kings of Israel and Judah who reigned and did what they think was right in their own eyes. After six years another one sit as president and the vicious cycle starts all over again. God save the Philippines!

  • maniniyot kho

    Hindi kaya nanginig at namutla sa takot ang Garcia dynasty, ng sabihin ni Arcbishop Palma ng CBCP tungkol sa pag PRAY sa kanila…dahil sariwa pa ang pag PRAY ng CBCP kontra sa RHbill pero hindi tumalab. Mahiya naman po kayo kung inaakala nyong sa inyo nang tirahan ang opisina ng gobyerno. Tama lang na pabayaran sa kanila ang mga kunsumo. KAPAL TALAGA…

    A  SWAT  team  should  be able to solve this  problem  swiftly  and with minimum casualties ! This  drama  should end now, it makes  the government look WEAK  in the  eyes of the people and that is  NOT acceptable . . It diminishes the momentum of effectiveness of  President Noynoy’s governance. He has the support  of majority of the Filipino people so  I think  there will be no problem  here if the SWAT  team  acts  now !! YES SIR ! NOW NA !!

    Do you think you are above the law m-fucker

    • efffyoufools

      funny. so many efffin paid retards posting retarded comments here. had aquino acted according to the local gov’t code, garcia will have no choice but to abide by the order, right?  but aquino was in violation of the section 66 of the local gov’t code that gave him only 30 days to decide after the investigation but instead decided to suspend garcia 474 days after and had the order served when she wasn’t in the office to acknowledge receipt of the order which even a law student would agree that the order was ineffective because it wasn’t acknowledged by the respondent. aquino is a m-fucker who always bends the law that says NO to his sinister agenda.

      • Jerry_SeinfeId

        Alim A – your IP address is recorded. One request and you are nothing but history m-fucker!

      • Akho_Si

         Yes, you are right about Section 66, the timing is indeed highly suspicious, given the rules in the Local Government Code. The merits of the case, i hope, will not be set aside for this technicality, because if you happened to read the full text of the OP decision, the decision arrived at is anchored on tenable grounds.

        As to receipt of decisions, the law and the courts are well aware of respondents hiding just to avoid acknowledging proof of service. That is why the law and the rules of court have that “substituted proof of service” to remedy this scenario: by leaving copies at residence duly received by some person of suitable age residing there; and leaving copies at the person’s office duly received by some competent persons there. The decision could also be posted in the premises, and it could also be sent in registered mail with return card.

        All those procedures to remedy situation where those who are cunning enough, that unfortunately by advice of their lawyers, will do everything to avoid receiving the decision personally, thus resulting to jurisdictional issues that, by money or whatever, a corrupt court will always be ready to grab as an opportunity to be able issue TRO or adverse decision.

    How come such a stubborn family can run Government offices and decide a country fate ?

    When this kind of macho becoming lawmakers it should be worrisome

    To lead a Gang is something for Trapos, a Capitol it has to be something else.

    A Plutocracy style don’t fit to a suposed Moderne Democracy,

    Feudal time is over since too long for that,

    Don’t be surprised to observe a Backward country, as it is run by back-warders obstinately

    glued with arrogance to their privileges, its smell fishy…

  • pol tan

    Another example of a politico not following the law. Kung suspended ka, umalis ka sa opisina mo tsaka ka mag file ng TRO, hindi yung ayaw sumunod sa lawful order. At paano naman nila nalaman na mag iisue ng TRO ang Court of Appeals by Friday? Ganun lang ba ang CA? Pag nag file issue agad? O baka naman may pampadulas na yan

  • catmanjohn

    Garcia must have something terrible to hide. The degree of desperation and adversity shows that this is probable. One could hardly believe that Robrero’s death was an accident, after all there was a survivor, and what about Ecleo? why has he not been apprehended? 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_44QGTQXFYHNVPNMX453LWBPMXM Opel

    staying in the office after being suspended is more of a political statement. although she physically occupies the governor’s office, she can no longer perform official function, NGAs, Banks and other governmental agencies recognizes and will transact only with the acting vice governor. Nonetheless,It will also be a source of bragging rights should she able to obtain a TRO against malacanang from the court. its the election period, money will flow and miracles can be bought.

    “Usurpation of authority”?  What is that?  Will someone explain this to us?  It must be very serious to merit a suspension.

  • Luthmar

    Stop the electric supply in the governor’s office.  The family will be spending some days
    there.  They will consume lots of electricity because air condition will be non stop.  They will
    cook there, watch a lot of tv and God knows what else.  Stop also the water supply.  This is the
    most important thing so they won’t be able to take a bath or shower.  They will not be able to use
    the toilet.

    A governor who does not know how to obey the law.  What a good example. 

    • efffyoufools

      a president who didn’t even win in the election does not obey any law. what a good example to retarded like you.

      • Luthmar

    • Don Dee

      Really good tactics. I hope the DILG reads this. Start cordoning off the capitol. Stop people from coming in until these people get out.

    • marcos_hitler_diktador_tuta

      Bazooka d capitol also and all of the above.

  • LegalJustice

    4th Day:

    If the person refuses to follow the rule of law the only remedy is to send the SWAT Team tear gas the vicinity and arrest the culprit and flew her in Manila and put her behind bars in Camp Crame.

    If DILG don’t do anything and keep prolonging the situation and no action – nobody will ever follow them in the near future.

    DILG need to inforce the rule of law – if you don’t she will do this again and again.
    This Gov Garcia is already telling them point blank stating: “Over my dead body ! ”

    That translate I am the law.

    She is putting the whole Cebu City as Hostage here.

    Power hungry. They’ll do anything to hold on to power. Consequent to that, if they don’t have power, they’re nothing. If they can’t see their botoxed faces in the mirror, they’re nothing. If they can’t charge the batteries on their cellphones, I pad, laptap, etc., they’re nothing. If they can’t watch tv,  if they’re sweating all over, they’re nothing. Eureka! That’s the solution to this problem. Make them powerless, literally and figuratively.
    Turn the power off.  The water supply too, for good measure. Coming out of that office smelling and looking like rats, let’s see if their one million supporters, who supposedly gave one million votes to GMA, will still stick to them this time.

    if the garcias are taking legal remedies then what’s the use of staying in her office physically? she is not functioning as a governor any more, para saan pa ang pagpupumilit nyang tumira sa opisina na para sa governor? di ko talaga maintindihan! ibakante mo yan para sa acting governor at hintayin yong outcome ng legal remedies nyo! why not take all her personal belongings and go home to spend christmas peacefully. the capitol building is for the use of official function! there is no more logic insisting on staying there. the difference is only where her physical presence is! she is just making a lot of inconveniences to everybody! creating tension, disturb the normal function of the building, additional burden to the police force not to mention the huge expenses it cause to incure! all of these because of the non sense doing of a spolied brat na kinukonsente ng non the less her parents who are suppose to be over mature in politics and veteran lawyers! let us be at least logical and practical man lang as peaceful law abiding citizens. nakakasuka na ang pagka OA mo gwen.

    • chingnarciso

      can I add some of your comments? Plus the  Capitol building is own by the people, not hers to use for this non sense drama.If she is a true leader, she needs to follow the higher authority and show the people that she is worthy to be a leader,and fight her legal dilemma to the court of law..By the way I am not from Cebu,I’m just expressing my though only..Nabasa ko lang sa internet ito.

    Politicians acting as being above the law is normal in PHL banana republic. Marcos was the mother of all these despicable politicians. Gwen Garcia is just emulating that in her own pathetic way. What is really scary is that Binay, the touted next president, did it too. Boo Pilipinas!!! you may have survived the Mayan doomsday, but a careless choice of your next president may hasten your apocalypse.

    This has not been the first time that happen in the Philippines…..Gwen Garcia will be booted out in the Capitol either peacefully or forcefully….If I were you Madam Governor just leave the Capitol peacefully for the sake of Political stability in your province. And mount a good strategy in your reelection bid. In this way you are the underdog and maximize to gain as many votes as you can to retain your office…What’s the used of fighting it out in the open court for the remaining 5 months in your term…It’s not worth dying for Madam Governor…..

    “Representative Garcia, however, said his daughter still had a right to have an office being the governor of cebu.” Palagay natin tama sya, but there is no such thing as governor’s bedroom in the capitol. Why not hold office during office hour only or palagay natin kung may overtimed work?
    “Only her functions are suspended…” so now you honor the suspension order? “…but she is still entitled to an office” so then we will call it OSG, as in Office of the Suspended Governor! Then we’ll put this notice: “No official transaction accepted. This office is not functional” ganun???

    Gwen is a reflection of the selfishness and arrogance of the Garcias in Cebu.

    I’m glad Vice President Binay changed his mind about having Gwen in his senatorial ticket. A suspended governor as a UNA’s senatorial candidate would pull down the “good” image of the UNA that is made up of “honest” and “honorable” people like Jojo Binay (Makati City plunderer and warlord), Erap Estrada, a former president impeached because of corruption husband of many women,, Enrile, the architect and administrator of the martial law and warlord of Cagayan.

  • PhoenixPoliticalParty

    Here’s what I think.  

    The President should step in.  Suspend the DILG implementation order for a month, and do it publicly.  In the same order,  he calls for Ms. Garcia to report to Malacanang say on January 6, when the festivities are over.  She can then explain to the President in person why she should not be suspended for six months.

    This way, everybody can spend Christmas and New Year in peace.  The DILG shall have no reason to complain,  or get offended,  because it is their boss giving the order, and it is not actually reversing it yet,  only suspending the effectivity date.

  • Pert Cabatana

    See: the Garcia family thinks that the Cebu Capitol building is their family property and that the province is their dynastic territory.

  • LegalJustice

    DILG should give her a final warning send her a memorumdum in the Capitol where she is staying that she has a day or 2 to vacate the place or else she will be forced out for she is putting Cebu City as Hostage here.

    If she still refuse and  won’t follow the rule of law then send the SWAT Team and tear gas the vicinity and if she put the law inforcer in danger then she need to be maimed and then flew her to Manila and put her behind bars in Camp Crame so her UNA Leaders : VP Binay, JPE and JE can visit her.

    DILG should act now instead of pro-longing the situation let the rule of law rules – action is needed here or else they will never listen to anyone – you need to inforce the law – no but or if.

    She is already telling you: ” Over my dead body ! ” that translate she is above the law.

    Plus VP Binay is not doing anything it seems he is condoning what Gov Garcia is doing – its like de javu.

    This is politics, Philippine style. No respect for the

    these people don’t care what the Constitution says so long as they can have

    Moronic behaviour of the likes of Gwen Garcia’s can only happen under a weak leadership such as under Pnoy and Mar Roxas.

The people will know that any blood spilt in the process will be on her account. It is about time we stand firm on crazed politicians.

    Very good prior comments have been raised such as UNA’s defiance of orders, i.e. Binay and now Gwen, political dynasty,etc.

    It is good that the government is exercising maximum tolerance, at least during the Yuletide season but this should not go one for a long time since defiance such as this would mean we have a weak political system.

    Perhaps after Christmas, the full force of the law should be applied.

    Btw, the mayor (a member of the Liberal Party) of a city in Zamboanga that is being investigated due to alleged involvement in the scam should also be suspended while investigation is going on.

    I am not sure if the defiance of Gwen would amount to treason.

    Let us not be soft with those politicians who thought that they are the law.

    Enough of this arrogance and disrespect for the law of this country.

    Sa usaping ito maraming ang nag mukhang tanga di lang ang mga nagsasabing kaladkarin palabas dahil pangit ang kanyang ilog, pati si Mar Roxas  nag mukhang na ring tanga o nagtanga-tangahan. Noong isang araw ang auntie ni Abnoy na si Tingting Cojuanco personal na bumisita ni Gov. Garcia at sinabi pa ni Tingting na naka-usap nya si Balsy, kapatid ni Abnoy, na bibisita sya ni Gov. Garcia. Ang di alam ng karamihan na kaibigan ni Balsy si Gov. Garcia. 

    Mas pipili-in ko na isiping nag tanga-tangahan lang si Mar Roxas dahil di naman siguro sya talagang tanga, sa kasong ito just to accomodate the Osmenas na kalabang mortal ng mga Garcia. Di kasi matanggap ng mga Osmena na sa ilang dekadang pamamayagpag nila sa political scene sa CEbu buburahin ito ng mga Garcia. Kaya naghanap talaga ito ng paraan para magupo nila ang poder ng mga Garcia. 

    Para magmukhang di hiya-hiya at sampal sa pamahalaang Abnoy ang pagmamatigas ni Gov. Garcia abangan nyo na pagmalapit na maglabas ng TRO ang CA, dyan magparamdam ng katigasan at uutusan ang mga pulis. SA MADALING SALITA , NALUKO ANG LAHAT, ha ha ha ha.

      If UNA have 3 musketeers in Binay, Estrada and Enrile how would you call the triumvirate of Roxas, Abad and Noy? 3 Stooges? Just kidding. There is no significant difference between UNA and LP as far as protecting their party mates are concerned. If UNA has Gwen then LP has Padaca. Gwen is accused of abused of authority by the executive while Padaca is charged at Sandigan for corruption. The Philippines is already a Lawless Land where political favor weigh than righteousness. President Aquino won’t compromised the rule of law? He did already by paying the bail of Padaca and appointing her as comelec commissioner where she can invoke immunity to charges. Just do an in depth research on UNA and LP and I would tell you the findings will be obvious..walang pinag kaiba ang dalawang partido kahit sa anong bagay.

But the decision came out ONLY last Dec. 17, or 474 days after.Under Administrative Order 23, upon transmittal of the records of her case from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Office of the President must decide on it within 30 days.The records were transmitted from the office of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo last July 26, 2012. But again, a decision came out only on Dec. 17, or 144 days later.  So if you know your law and rights, would you follow illegal order??? Over my dead body!!!

    Please step down Gwen. The credit should have been, Philippine Government through local Provincial Government not your name if ever there are accomplishments. Cebuanos did not elect you to stick your name on every media. You should know that and for God’s sake you are putting yourself and your allies in bad light. Ang imong anak naghariharian sa Capitol nagtraffic enforcer. Ang iyang kauban atong panahona nanapak ug police. Ang imong igsoon giingnan ang police nga ipaddress ang inyong amahan ug Sir, Honorable unya gipaemphasize pa gyud ang dako-dako sa congresso. Ikaw nag-over-my-dead-body paka. Ang imong anak nga babaye, nag wonder siya nganong wala siya pasudla. Hala nag-assume siguro siya nga kaila na lang niya ang tanang tao. Pangayuan ug ID naghilas-hilas na kay anak kuno nimo. Ako dako ko ug respeto ni Mayor Duke hilabi na sa iyang amahan, pero ayaw intawon apil-apila siya. Mayor Duke, padaplin ha kay basin maangin ka sa gubot, ayaw intawon ug apil-apil kay madaot ang imong record. Busa Madame Gwen palihug ug pahawa sa pwesto una ang tawo sa Cebu maoy magpapahawa nimo. Ako mismo nakasubay sa imong gibuhat kang Greg Sanchez, gubaon nga CICC, lamp post, suroy-suroy nga walay merit, Barili properties, Sugbo TV nga puro lang nawong nimo ang gipasibya ug uban pa. Please lang.
