Palace asks court to reject Gwen Garcia’s TRO plea



Gwen Garcia. JUNJIE MENDOZA / CDN

MANILA, Philippines—Saying that President Benigno Aquino III did not violate any law in ordering Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia suspended, the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) formally opposed Garcia’s petition to stop her suspension in the Court of Appeals.

In a 29-page petition dated Dec. 27, Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza said the embattled governor’s petition should be denied for lack of merit as she had “failed to demonstrate that there was a flagrant abuse of the exercise of the power of suspension” by the Office of the President.

The OSG said under Sections 67 and 68 of the Local Government Code of 1991, the decision of the Office of the President in administrative cases is final and executory and an appeal does not prevent the decision from becoming final and executory.

The solicitor general countered Garcia’s argument that the administrative complaint against her should have been dismissed in view of the death of complainant Vice Gov. Gregorio Sanchez Jr.

Jardeleza, quoting two Supreme Court decisions issued in 2005 and 2009, explained that in administrative cases, the death of a complainant does not automatically extinguish the case against a respondent.

“In this class of proceedings, the complainant is only treated as a witness,” said Jardeleza.

“Once an administrative complaint is given due course, the government becomes the real aggrieved party and the complainant’s death will not exonerate the public official of administrative charges,” he added.

The OSG said Garcia also “misread” another 2005 Supreme Court ruling which she cited in supporting her claim that the vice governor did not have the authority to appoint.

The OSG said the Office of the President and the Department of the Interior and Local Government found that Garcia signed the appointment papers of contractual employees for the vice governor’s office in 2010 and charged their salaries to the budget allocation for the vice governor’s office.

The budget for the contractual employees was removed in 2011 for “unknown reasons” but was restored after Sanchez’s death.

“This evokes malice and bad faith,” said Jardeleza. He said the budget reduction came after Sanchez left Garcia’s political party which “lends itself to the belief that a scheme to restrict the functions of the [vice governor] was employed.”

“This counters the very purpose of the Local Government Code which is to distribute power among elective local officials, allow a check and balance,” said the OSG.

The OSG also countered Garcia’s claim that she had not yet received the suspension order, saying it was posted on the door of Garcia’s office.

    The Palace move of expressing his desire on the Gwens TRO is a dangerous move. It is fact that the Executive Branch of our government should not in any way interfere in the role of Judiciary which is an independent body. In no way should the Executive Branch EVER influence the role of the Judiciary in the dispensation of justice. Otherwise, we are back to Martial Law. Beware!

    • leomar101

       But your fear existed since this vendictive president took over. He has been influencing  the judiciary,congress and senate. Removing corona by all means was the first step to fulfill his desired dictatorial tendencies. If you have read the Bulatao report regarding his psychological enadequacies, One will realize now that after all the Bulatao report are all true.He is not fit to lead.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KCCZPQATUI5WCVB7B2NRF4G2YM pete

        Fear only exists in the minds of those who have something to hide. Right, Gloria? Right, Gwen? #double facepalm

      • leomar101

         Right, that’s why all of them hide their SALN, that’s why the FOI bill  is sidelined, that’s why there is no investigation on billions of unaccounted  CCT fund. That’s why the investigation of 1000 vans which disappeared  2 years ago until now is hidened. hahaha, as if it’s only gloria or gwen. Try to look at also the corruptions  now. So why only focus your anger on the past. These people can not do more havoc than the people who are in power now? Bakit kayo galit sa nakaraan when in fact ang kurapsyon ngayon ay mas talamak pa kay sa nakaraan? Double bald faced yan di ba. hahaha. Only those people who are brain washed ay naniwala sa  mga one liner  ng bulok rin na administrasyong ito.

      • puza65

        then ilabas mo lahat ng ebidensya mo kung talagang may alam ka or hintayin mo na matapos ang termino ni Pnoy….ang hirap sa mga pinoy eh ok lang ung mga ginagawa ng mga magnanakaw kaya namimihasa sila sa pagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan…

      • puza65

        ang natatakot kay PNOY ay ang mga kawatan sa gobyerno…kaya pinalalabas nilang not fit to lead…

    • Don Dee

      Tanga. Ang TRO petition filed by Gwen is against the suspension order issued by the DILG, in effect RESPONDENT ang executive. Therefore, it is only right the executive branch of the government “express their desire” on that TRO. Ano ang interference duon? Due process yun. Affidavit vs counter affidavit. Bobo. Zero ka nga.

      • Facilitator1

        Korek ka kabayan. 

        Pero may suggestion ako: mas makikinig ang mga tao sa iyo kung maiiwasan mong gumamit ng mga maanghang na salita. Pero I feel you kabayan kasi may mga tao (either hindi binasa ang nakasulat or makapagsulat lang or may hidden agenda) magsusulat sila na salat sa LOGIC at minsan pa nga, maiinis ka dahil PALPAK ang mga comments. 

        Kung pwedi lang silang batukan–babatukan mo. Sabi nga sa amin, baka member sila ng ROW 4 SECTION 4 noon nasa school pa–either way, try to control your bearing and decorum…PEACE

      • Don Dee

        I am sorry for the use of the ‘maanghang na salita”. I will try to tone it down. Minsan lang nakakapikon na ang kabobohan ay pinaniniwalaan ng mga kapwa bobo. Parang contagious disease! lol.

        Yeah peace and happy new year!

      • kahol aso

        ok lang naman maging bobo eh. pero nakakapikon kasi nagpapaka dalubhasa pa sa comment nya etong si zeroko. 

        eh paano kung me maniwala sa kanya. patay. 

        hoy zeroko, wag ka mag galing galingan dyan. mag aral ka na lang. 

      • zeroko

        Ang legality ay bigay na natin sa mga dalubhasa. Ang practicality ang pagusapan natin. Malapit na ang eleksyon! Naiintindihan mo ba ako? Kung suspended is Gwen ng 6 na buwan, paano ngayon makaka campaign siya? 

        Ayaw ko rin si Gwen dahil sa over-price ng gusali o building na siya ang namuno sa pagpagawa noong nagkaroon ng Ministrial Meeting sa Cebu. Sa original na budget na 400 million, tumaas ng 900 million pesos, samantalang ang Mactan bridge na napakalaki, at puro malalaking bakal, kalahati lang ang presyo.

        Ang mensahe ko lang dito ay, WRONG TIMING! Fair is fair, Gwen belongs to the opposition, so why file the case  when election is so near. Besides, why not file cases against Migz Zubiri, tawag ko, Senator of Maguindanao, dahil doon lang siya nanalo. Migz was given 4 billion pesos on his pet project on the Jetropa, Green Fuel, and it failed after 2 years. Romulo Neri who has a pet project in DepEd worth 500 million pesos on outsourcing, and closed up 3 days after the inauguration. There is Jeslie Lapos of DepEd again who was involve in noodle scam worth 427 million pesos, si Arthur Yap, Unsec. of Department of Agriculture who bought 500 million for 10 cold storage machine intended for the fish port by can not be located on it’s where about, the over supply of NFA rice worth billions of pesos which we never need in the first place. Daming kaso sa gobyerno ng mga Filipino-Chinese. 

        Ang tanong dito ke Gwen, bakit ngayon pa? He he he. May political implication ito. Gustong pilayan ng PNoy group ang mga kandidato ng UNA. 

        Bakit si Councilor of Q.C. Roderic Paulate, and another Q.C. Councilors were given TRO regarding the complaint on  “Ghost Employee” filed by former Pimentel Senior?

        Yuong dating head of TESDA na si Syjuco, 1,400% over price and his is now a Congressman just like Arthur Yap of Department of Agriculture, bakit walang kaso?

        Kung kaso lang ang paguusapan laban sa mga Filipino-Chinese sa matataas na pwesto sa gobyerno, kulang pa ang pahinang ito. 

        Nariyan din ang Angara Dynasty sa Baler, Aurora province. Mantakin mo, 12,900 hactares ang ipaprivatize niya dahil lang sa economic zone project niya, eh, paano naman ang Infanta eco-Zone na hindi matapos tapos? Puro simula sa gobyerno, pet project daw, ngunit yuong ke Angara, very clear na illegal logging ang puntirya niya. 12,999 hectares is a lot of trees, to the disadvantage of the Indigenous people. 

        Hay naku, sino ang tangga. Mahilig talaga sa name calling itong mga Instik! Why not go back where your ancestors came from.? Hw hw hw. Joke lang. Basta name calling, alam ko na kung anong lahi ka. Dee he he he!

      • Don Dee

        Asus, malapit na ang eleksyon. BULLSHIT! Hindi yan ang original argument mo. Ang sabi mo, hindi dapat nagbibigay ng opinyon ang executive sa judiciary. You know, the saddest part of all this is that when posted that stupid comment is that I KNOW you actually felt smart when you did that, didn’t you? Kita mo, haba na naman ng reply mo. Kinareer na wala pa ring laman. Bla bla bla. nonsense.

      • josefe38

        Sabi mo Don Dee “Due process yun. Affidavit vs counter affidavit”. Kung sundan ko ang takbo ng iyong paliwanag, maari ring sa ngayon pa lang maghain din ang kampo ni Garcia to oppose sa panibagong petition filed by Jardeleza? Tingnan ko nga ang sagot mo na magaling magsabi na “tanga”.

      • Don Dee

        The usual next step is ORAL ARGUMENTS. Maghaharap na sa korte at duon mag de debate. Argument vs. argument. It is up to the court to appreciate the arguments by each side and to decide on that! Ngayon, going back to the original “TANGA!” post, tama bang sabhin na undue influence ito by the executive on the judiciary (which Zeroko is implying). Kung ganun, everytime na magsampa ang (let’s say) PCGG sa korte, UNDUE INFLUENCE na naman yun. Ganun ba ang principle of independence of the three co equal branches of the government?

      • josefe38

        Tandaan mo na di pa nanghingi ang CA ng counter affidavit from the office of the president, paano tinawag na counter affidavit?

Parang warrant of arrest lang yan di nman kelangan maaresto ka muna bgo ka magpyansa

      • zeroko

        Kahit na ano pang paliwanag mo, ang “timing e mali.” Bakit ngayon lang? Malapit na ang eleksyon, bobo. This is the same technique na ginamit ni Gloria laban sa opposition. Marunong ka pa ke Binay, JPE, Erap at iba pa. The message is clear, it is a form or harassment. 

        Binay was a victim before. If I can remember it right, the Mayor of Pasay, Pewee or something was also subjected to these kind of harassment. Let us not go to technicality. The message is too clear to disregard. Harass the opposition……

      • zeroko

        Chinese ang binabangit mo. Ang mga kandidatong Pinoy, walang pera, they can not engage on vote buying.. Ang pinaglalaban nila ay katarungan para sa Pinoy. Ang mga Chinese, tumatakbo yan para mangurakot. 

        Palaging panalo ang mga Chinese sa eleksyon natin dahil sila ang may pera. Tapos, they are back up by the powerful Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Chinese businessmen. These organization sees to it that only Chinese govern the Philippines. Look at the composition of our SC. He he he. Puro singkit.

        Mandaraya na sa negosyo, mandaraya parin sa halalan. Cheating, lying, and stealing is in the blood of these particular race. 

        By the way, don’t you know that mainland Chinese is already extracting oil and gas in the Palanan group of Island? He he he. Ano ang ginagawa ni PNOy, our Filipino-Chinese President? WALA! Busy sa paglalaro ng video Game. Nagbubulagbulagan. He he he. Paano, kung talo siya sa Video game, replay lang niya hanggang manalo siya. He he he.

        Under PNoy, we have the biggest rice smuggling going on. He beats Gloria’s smuggling. Mantakin mo, pinadaan pa sa Legaspi, Albay ang barko ng Vietnam para hindi ma huli? E, kaso na huli ng ating magigiting na Coast Guard. Ang layo ng inikutan ng barko ng bigas! Dumaan sa San Bernardino Straight bago nakarating sa Legaspi.

        Under PNoy, we have the biggest government borrowing. In Pnoy’s two year term, 900 billion pesos na ang dadag sa utang. Utang, utang, utang. Tapos, ang mamamayang Pilipino ang magbabayad nito. Meanwhile our Filipino-Chinese Congressmen and Senators are having their “sweet pork barrel.” Business as usual. Instead of “Balance Budget” which means confining our government expenses base on what we can collect, ito, our Budget of 2013 has ballooned to 2.003 trillion pesos! Ang Spain, ang Greece, ang IceLand, ang mga European countries, hirap na sa balance budget nila dahil sa laki ng utang, tayo pa kaya? Ang America, nariyan ang Fiscal Cliff, at pag hindi nila nalutas ang problema, taas ang taxes at dadami, by the millions ang mawawalan ng trabaho, tayo pa kaya?

        Our government ruled by Chinese does not mind bringing down our economy. Anyway, Hong KOng is just 50 minutes away. Lalayas ang mga yan pag nagkagulo na rito pag hindi natin nabayaran ang utang ng gobyerno. Paspasan na binibigay sa mga Chinese ang lahat ng lupa natin. Pati government corporations, binabenta rin sa mga Chinese. 

        Under PNoy, we have the biggest unemployment. 29%! Under PNoy, his beat Gloria, another pro-Chinese in selling our land and government properties to the Chinese. Believe me, the PAGCOR which is earning 34 billion pesos a month is the next target of the Filipino-Chinese in our government. Pati, MRT-LRT, dilikado rin. Sino ang maniniwala na lugi ang MRT/LRT? It transport half a million each day, the fare o pamasahe, has gone up, ngunit sabi ni PNoy, privatize natin, at bigay sa Chinese.

        Ang Angat Dam na gagastusan sana ng 5 billion pesos for “Maintenance” pinagbili na sa pseudo Korean firm for 25 years, ang tutuo, dummy lang ang Korean company. Ang real owner of the firm are Chinese. 

        PNoy has closed his eyes to the fact that many Chinese unlisted mining venture is going on right in our country. Tahimik lang si PNoy. Mysteriously, the gold extracted from our mines that were suppose to be sold to the Central Bank is now smuggled off the country by the Chinese. Thousands of tons of precious metals are also under declared. Ano ang napala ng mga Pilipino dito sa mining venture under PNoy? WALA! Lason katulad ng Mercury, Sulfur Dioxide, Arsenic, at Lead ang minanan natin. Sinira ni PNoy ang ating kalikasan. Pinapatay ang mga indiginous people natin gamit ang ating military sa mga tumatanggi sa mining venture ng mga Chinese.

        Hoy, GIRING!!!!

    • carlos_premacio

      Gaya din sa hacienderong PNoy at oligarkikong Roxas na sa daang matuwid nila akalang makalimutan nang mga Pilipino ang mga ginagawa nang kanilang mga lolo noong panahon nang Hapon na sila ang naghari sa bansa at naging kemptai. Ilang guerilla ang napatay at ilang Pilipino ang nakunan nang mga ari-arian dahil sa collaborator na Aquino at Roxas. Saan ba nadakip ang lolo ni PNoy? Hindi ba’t sa bansang Japan dahil sumama sa mga nag-aatrasang hapon.

        had the american pilot followed his request to fly them to paoay, ilocos  Marcos could have proven his innocence in court and could have sent everyone involved to jail.

    PNoy does not understand the meaning of separation of powers amongst the 3 branches of gov’t. He broke this well-entrenched principle when he pressured the congress to pass as law the RH bill. Now, he is interfering with the court’s exercise of its judicious power to issue TROs. What he is doing is impeachable offense. HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED!

        Do it  yourself Datu and advice the other pro RH law supporters to do the same, all of you are guilty of this.

    • Reorita

      I think Congress is independent from the Executive except that majority of the members of these 2 chamber of houses are aligned with the President. If you are the President it is normal that you will ask your party allies to support you so that the party’s government thrusts to be implemented by the president will be achieved. If we have to dig it down, these are just part of the political process. A President is a lame duck President If he cannot muster her allies. In the case of RH Bill, this has been debated since the time of Ramos. The only question was the Presidents and members of both houses (Representatives and Senate) during those times were all afraid and do not have the balls to go against the wishes of the Catholic Church.

      • Garote

        Ramos was not a total puppet. Now we have a president who is a total
        puppet of the globalist pharmaceutical companies. The congress during
        Ramos had still some  nationalistic feelings for their country and
        people, because  they would not allow foreign corporations to mandate
        them to pass law not beneficial to the Filipino people. Now majority of
        our congress are “paid lapdogs” of globalist corporations. To prove this
        point, the no.1  eugenic-globalist, spouses Gates, emailed PNoy and
        congratulated him  for a work well done — passing the RH law which the
        foreign investors had pressured him to do — in effect thanking PNoy he
        had sold out the wives and children of the Filipino people. THAT’S THE
        DIFFERENCE!

      • batongkidlat

        The answer is not that they had balls or not, but were they moral. It was even shown in the history channel that former sec of state Mr. Henry Kissinger advised then pres of US Nixon to control Asia population before Asia becomes too big to control like china. People are our biggest resource (just look at out ofw,s bringing stability to out economy.) if you want to see Kissinger himself propagating new world order, just search YouTube. Penoy(itlog bugok) chooses money over the Phil. Until now he has not signed a waiver on his SALN.

      • batongkidlat

        I think it’s not a question of having balls, but a question of being MORAL and SOVEREIGN… Then Sec. of State Henry Kissinger advised then U.S Pres. Nixon to control Asian population lest, they become too big to control. Until now, Kissinger is promoting New World Order. Just search in YouTube… Penoy is conceding to this as a puppet and because of the money. He has not signed a waiver on his SALN until now :(

      What a stupid argument. Do you have law subjects in college? It seems you  have but you did not study it. You’re ignorant of the Philippine laws on separation of powers. The case of Garcia is an administrative case wherein the Office of the President has the sole power to try and decide on the case. The OP has the power to suspend local government officials based on our existing laws. The OP through the Solicitor General (Government’s Lawyer) has the right to question the petition for a TRO by Garcia because it was the Office of the President who issued the suspension order. Do you know what are the grounds for an impeachment case? I am certainly sure, you do not know. You’re ignorant my dear. Whether he pressured the congress or not, he did not violate any law. It is the pleasure of the President to convince his allies in Congress to vote in favor of the bills which are priorities of the government. “IGNORANTIA IURIS NOCET! (Ignorance of the Law is harmful!)”

      • Garote

        Did I say the OP has no power to suspend or petition for a TRO? I did not.Second, if the lawmakers are allies of PNoy he does not have to pressure them, do you agree? So the lawmakers he pressured where non-allies, and if PNoy used any pressure on any member of congress in the exercise of his power to legislate law, PNoy had violated the separation of powers clause, do you agree? Whether allies or non-allies, PNoy using of “pork barrels” to pressure the passage of RH bill is in itself a violation of the law, don’t you agree? If you are a lawyer, the way you argue is very embarrassing. I would be ashamed to call myself a lawyer if I argue the way you do, How did you pass the bar examination when you don’t have any legal logic?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/MQ5WGQ3X24POCR4Z3D2NDBUXC4 Franz Zel

         I just said that OP has the power to suspend local govt officials to support my argument on the fact that the OP has the power to oppose the request of TRO by Garcia since the suspension order came from the OP. Can you cite a specific law indicating that pressuring members of congress is a violation on the separation of powers amongst the three branches of government? Anyway, your arguments are full of hearsay. If you’re in a court, the judge won’t believe you (RE: PNoy using of “pork barrels” to pressure the passage of RH bill), you do not have proof or evidence. I am no lawyer but I am not IGNORANT of the laws of my country.Your arguments are all flawed.

        Even if you want to be a lawyer, you can never be one because you’re stup1d. Why talk of court and judge when we are not in court. Why talk of hearsay, when we here are not bound by the rules of evidence? Are you so stupid not to realize that by the very nature of blogging all blogs that are posted here are all hearsay? You’re really an idi@t if you think what you’ve posted are not also hearsay! IDI@T!

        do you mean all blogs are all hearsay??? FYI, the article above is a NEWS and NOT A BLOG. Your comment talks about legalities (re: separation of powers), so arguments must also be based on legal aspect and not just on your stupid and ignorant interpretation of the laws. FYI again, can you please review my comments, there is no hearsay statement that I have written. All my comments are based on the law and not just on a mere hearsay! So who is more stupid and more idiot amongst the two of us?

      • Garote

        Much talk much mistake . . . why don’t you just shut up. It’s embarrassing to show your ignorance in public, which you are doing. You are telling people around the world you don’t know the meaning of “hearsay”; look it up in the dictionary, moron. Bwahahahahaha . . .

  • Hey_Dudes

    To think this woman is just holding position as governor and yet  can already act in this fashion, wait till she gets elected senator or president daig pa niya sigurado ang raging bull.  Mas masahol pa siguro iyan ke matulis na gloria.  There is no respect for law it is first and foremost ego trip for these power hungry politicians.

    Hoy hindi na ba kayo marunong mahiya?

    • Ronilo Yap

      Kapit tuko. Naglinis sana siya ng sariling bakuran bago pa nasipat ng kapitbahay, di sana di siya na puna. Salaula eh, kaya ayon. Iimbestigahan na, kakapit tuko para makaglinis man lang kunti.

      Kala niya malakas ang kapit dahil taga UNA.

    The biggest problem of the suspended governor is that she does not know what is her problem.

    Ex-Governor Gwen wag ka naman parang kapit-tuko dyan.  Kung may nilabag kang batas ALIS NA. NOW NA. Pampagulo ka lang eh.

  • Your_King

    This issue is very simple: Aquino wants Garcia out to help his Administration gain more power, especially in Cebu. We’ve all seen the past 3 years that when Aquino doesn’t like someone or wants someone kicked out or jailed he do whatever is necessary to get what he wants…even if it means to side-step the law or plainly just disregarding it.

    how many times does the palace have to interfere with the court’s decisions? they mingle with that, they mingle with the lawmakers, they mingle with show business. the only thing they are not mingling  with is their actual jobs. mind your own effin business and start doing your duties for once!

  • vodot

    Binay is on propaganda blitz hitting Mar Roxas for implementing a lawful order. Putting political dimension to a purely administrative matter. Binay is showing us Filipinos his style of governance similar to what the people rejected in the recent past.

    Gutom at matakaw sa kapangyarihan ang gobernadorang ito. Ginigipit niya ang sinumang opisyal gn pamahalaang pamprobinsyia at sinasaklaw ang karapatan ng mga ito na ibinoto ng mga mamamayan ng Cebu.

  • Reorita

    Pasagdi na lang si Gwen diha sa Capitol. Bisan sunod pasko pa siya mogawas sa capitol dili ko apektado ana. Dili naman ko moboto ana kay abusado man siya kaayo. What she is showing now is a manifestation of her being abusive including her son who also thinks he is an extension of the power of the governor. Those politicians that advised her to defy laws are just using her for their end. Binay, erap and enrile should have advised gwen to follow the rule of law instead of adding more fire. These three politicians should have acted as statesmen and not as devil advocates.

  • Garote

    Ramos was not a total puppet. Now we have a president who is a total puppet of the globalist pharmaceutical companies. The congress during Ramos had still some  nationalistic feelings for their country and people, because  they would not allow foreign corporations to mandate them to pass law not beneficial to the Filipino people. Now majority of our congress are “paid lapdogs” of globalist corporations. To prove this point, the no.1  eugenic-globalist, spouses Gates, emailed PNoy and congratulated him  for a work well done — passing the RH law which the foreign investors had pressured him to do — in effect thanking PNoy he had sold out the wives and children of the Filipino people. THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE!

  • JV Velarde

    For the country to move forward & become a first world country, we should have less or totally none of the Estrada’s, Enrile’s, Marcose’s, Binay’s & Arroyo’s in governance. 

    Enrile should be in jail as architect of the martial law regime, the Marcose’s should return all their billion dollar loot, the Estrada’s together with the Binay’s should stop pretending they are for the poor & the Arroyo’s should be kept in the National Bilibid prison for all the sins they’ve committed while in power. 

    As long as these people are around, our country we’ll just be a trying hard nation of fools.

      bring them to court, charged and proved it.. its simple as that.. Idiot!

      How about Padaca who have pending warrant of arrest for graft and corruption before her appointment to Comelec?
