MANILA, Philippines—The office of Vice President Jejomar Binay slammed Chief Supt. Marcelo Garbo, the Philippine National Police Central Visayas regional director, for saying he was prepared to physically remove suspended Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia from the provincial capitol where she has been holed up since being suspended from office last week.

A statement issued by Binay’s office quoted lawyer Ira Pozon, who heads the OVP Special Concern’s Office, as asking Garbo if his bid to physically remove Garcia from her office was his decision or that of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas or PNP Director General Allan Purisima.

Pozon reminded Garbo that Garcia has questioned her six-month suspension before the Court of Appeals, with a plea for a temporary restraining order on her suspension.

“Due process and the rule of law, not to mention judicial courtesy, require that you hold in abeyance your decision to remove the Governor from the provincial capitol,” Pozon said.

He also described the plan to remove Garcia from her office as un-Christian, “considering that we are still observing the most joyous season for Catholics.”

Pozon also warned Garbo that “such a provocative act could add to the political tension now prevailing in Cebu.”

“(P)hysically removing the Governor from her office while the process of appeal is not yet complete invites charges of abuse of authority and violation of due process,” he said. “Moreso, such an act invites counter-actions that could have political consequences beyond your control,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Philippine National Police (PNP) denied allegations of the Garcia camp, on Sunday, that it was allowing itself to be used in enforcing “martial law” in Cebu.

In a statement, Chief Supt. Generoso Cerbo Jr., the PNP spokesman, maintained that policemen manning the Cebu capitol have been merely doing their job to ensure peace and order in the area.

Despite the tension between the police and Garcia’s supporters, he said the PNP would observe maximum tolerance in dealing with the suspended governor and her supporters.

“The PNP is not taking sides on this issue… Any insinuation of martial law in Cebu only serves to undermine the professional and good image of the (PNP) organization,” he added.

He also stressed that the decision of the police to remove the tents of Garcia’s supporters from the capitol grounds was just part of the PNP’s “initiatives to maintain order in the area.”

A police officer, Inspector Avelino Enquito, had filed a case against Garcia’s son, Pablo “Paolo” Garcia III, after he and his two friends allegedly assaulted Enquito when the policeman tried to remove the tents.

Paolo Garcia had charged Enquito, other police officers and Interior Secretary Mar Roxas of robbery for removing the tents of his mother’s supporters.

    gov. garcia should not be removed from the capitol by force because the case is still under appeal in the court. But as a mother of the cebu province she should be a model of a law abiding citizens. If she has trust to our judicial system she will leave the capitol but her actions shows that our judiciary and executive branch of government can not be trusted.

      Can’t be trusted? Are you insane? Mrs. Gov. Garcia still showing that TRAPO kind of politician just like Enrile, Binay, Estrada, and others… PNOY was doing his job and if you are one of Garcia’s supporters, sorry but she have to abide by the rule of Law. What she is doing now  is contrary to what she is saying that she is being remove. For God sake, take a leave for six months for the investigation, otherwise they will remove her according to our Law. Nobody is above the Law! Rich and poor should abide the law and please no more kumpare, kaibigan, at kapartido! Kapag nagkasala, dapat parusahan!!!

      Mother of Cebu Province? I beg your pardon? You can cut that out for a start, as a Cebuano she ‘aint my mother, she’s a public servant is all, a government employee, MY employee she is there to do MY bidding not project herself as some ’Queen’ of Cebu, prancing around on horses and holing here self up in government offices like some latter-day Butch Cassidy…and she should obey the Law. Whether she likes it or not, or how many tantrums she throws, and how many cell phones she is throwing about her office, she is illegally occupying government property, she may think it’s her property but it ’aint- it’s actually mine and yours… she is, in essence a ‘squatter’ at this point.

  • Fulpol

    Cebu should immediately conduct “snap election”… to avoid fatal confrontations.. since there is no rule of law accdg to Garcia party and disobeying authority accdg to Roxas/BS Aquino III.

    let’s see if Binay/Garcia is more popular than Magpale/Roxas/BS Aquino III party..

      Nag-submit ka na naman ng kapulpulan mo…wala pa nga ‘yung TRO…ang ibig sabihin ng TRO, eh, Temporary Restraining Order, kaya habang wala pa ‘yan, nothing or no one can restrain the authorities to implement the rule of law.

      Bakit ka magho-hold ng elections, eh, maliwanag ang suspension niya…so, the suspension must be implemented, unless the court issue a TRO.

      Sinabi na rin ‘yan ni Constantine sa itaas…and, I believe what he is saying is more credible and in accordance with the rule of law than yours.

    • Htee

      Fulpy, ibig mong sabihin tuwing may masuspindi na gov. o mayor pag ayaw sumunod sa batas, election ang kasunod? Kung gastos mo ang election ok siguro pero hindi pa rin, gugulo lang lalo. Kaya isip ka pa ng ibang pang asar…hehe

    What rule of law that is being talked about by the lawyer of Binay? The rule of law is simple, the suspension order is immediately enforceable thus unless a TRO is issued by the CA or SC, then Garcia is supposed to get out of the Provincial Capitol. Since no TRO is issued until now, under the law, Garcia is illegally staying in the Capitol. 

    • buttones

      Yes, the suspended Governor is now actually a ‘squatter’ on government owned property, and what would happen if you or I took over government offices as our own? I venture to say the SWAT team would be knocking on the door-Unless your name happens to be Garcia of course…..

    This is about the 2016 elections. 
    I have always maintained that we deserve who ever we vote for in 2016….if we vote robbers, thieves, plunderers and murderers into office, we have no one but to blame but our selves.
    I still have to see the Filipino mature as a voter.If they vote Jackie Enrile into the Senate, then kasalan natin …….If they vote Binay as President, then kasalan natin lalo
    There is a lot of money to be made in the Philippines. The BIR has proven that it could reach the 1 Trillion collection mark and plans to increase it to 1.6T collection by 2016.
    Maraming mananakaw ng mga kawatan sa buong pilipinas. Grabe ang kayamanan natin….
    Bundok, kinakalbo ng mga politiko. Wala silang pakialam sa mga namamatay sa mga sakuna gawa ng baha and putol na troso.
    Our officials hide behind the reasoning of “Political oppression” when they are suspended with just cause.
    Marirap mag bago…Difficult to change. Sometimes, it is easier to “go along with the flow” and just turn your head away from the problem (and make some money on the side).
    This is what GMA and FG where good in doing. Pag may problema, tapalan ng pera. Favorite saying ni FG, “pera-pera lang yan”…lahat nga tayo, may katapat na presyo.
    This is how the likes of Doronilla and Tiglao make their money, making, seemingly logical commentaries.
    Gov. Garcia and Gov. Espino will be the litmus test of this Administration.
    PNoy is stubborn. He is headstrong. He will not waiver on corruption.
    Watch out. This Gov. Garcia and Gov. Espino situation may be even more critical than the Corona impeachment.
    GMA and FG are buying time for a sympathetic president come 2016. Binay is buyable and so is Enrile, who will move heaven and earth to protect their business interest.
    Never trust vain and small women with “Napoleonic Complexes”.  Why do you think Gwen Garcia and GMA love each other so much? Too much vanity…..one need breast augmentation and the other has the skin in her cheeks, streched all the way to her neck. Too much self love (Narcissism).

    Kapit Tuko sa Gwen Garcia. She cannot see the writing on the wall. She has to stay in power to protect Winston Garcia (her brother, who has his share of annomalities while running the GSIS) under the GMA’s administration.

    Garcia has allies in the Aboitizes (who are their partners in VECO). They are billionaires in Cebu. GMA is hoping to keep the Garcia family in power, for a win by a sympathetic president in 2016.

    To those saying that Pnoy is a power graber, look at the cases being filed and see if they have merit. GMA/FG and their cohorts, i.e. Gwen Garcia used the law to enrich themselves in office and escape prosecution by the law but use the same law to declare political harassment and persecution.

    Cebuanos are silently in approval of this move. Kapit tuko lang ang pamilyang Garcia. This will serve as a test for this administration’s resolve to go the straight path. Pnoy musn’t falter. He cannot fail. For the sake of our country, he cannot. 

    There are evil, self serving and self loving forces out there trying their best to make him fail.

  • Pinoy1960

    What does the Special Concern Office of the OVP has to do with the suspension order of Garcia? It was the governor who defied the suspension order of the OP and has refused to this day from vacating her office. Assuming for the sake of argument that there is an instruction for PNP to physically remove her from her office, is it now the mandate of the SCO to lawyer for the governor?

    The SCO employees must remember that they are public servants and they get their salaries from the taxes paid from the hard earned money of ordinary employees. You have no business using your time lawyering for a governor that does not follow the rule of law!

    What a shame!

    Ginoong Binay. Paalala lang po.

Kahit may apela ang ka partido nyo sa SC para sa TRO, dapat sundin pa rin ninyo ang isang legal na utos. Pag naibaba ang TRO saka ninyo iupo ulit ang governadora. Nakakaiya na po kasi ang ginagawa ninyo na pagkunsinti sa isang pag suway sa legal na kautusan.

    Ang PNP sa pamumuno ni C/Insp. Garbo ay sumusunod lang sa batas – wala ka’ng karapatang makisawsaw dahil legal ang utos sa kanila hwag mo isali ang pamumulitika mo. Kung binabalak mo ma’ng tumakbo sa pagka Presidente ngayon pa lang talo kana ang taong bayan sawa na sa mga pulitikong kagaya mo “MGA TRAPO”.

  • nelscruz

    sa pagkampi ng UNA kay garcia ay sigurado na akong di ko iboboto mga BINAY, ESTRADA, ENRILE sa 2016 eleksyon.

  • Jim De Garman

    seems Binay is not a vice president of the Philippines his idiotic warnings to PNP director Garbo to physically remove Garcia from capitol is uncalled and against his mandate as VP..instead of advising Garcia to leave capitol peacefully, he is more fueling the tension between DILG and Garcia..it is purely a personal animosity between him and Roxas..

    President Aquino should remove Binay as one of his cabinet members by not supporting the executive decision..do not vote for Binay, Enrile, Estrada on 2013 & 2016 election.

  • wawa2172

    Gwen and Binay, take it from Erap that politics is weather-weather lang. Gwen has already made her point na umaboso ang DILG in proposing 6-month suspension for her and was approved by PNoy. Gwen will no longer be the Cebu governor after her term but her clout would be substantial for the next governor to win. So she better leave the Capitol for peaceful purposes.

    LP will not win in Cebu because  the late imposition of the suspension have politcal color. Mar bakit ngayon lang sana noon pa. Halata tulot na may harassment ang nangyari dahil sa pag kakaintindi ni Speaker Belmonte, the case between Gwen and Sanchez is a simple admin case lang naman. Kung isang linggo lang ang suspension ok lang sana but 6 months parang ayaw nyo nang makabalik si Gwen dahil election na yata yon. 

    Its actually Binay vs Mar. With 3 Kings of UNA and 3 Musketeers of LP, I just hope that independent candidates wins para ma dismantle ang dynasties sa political arena nang Pinas.

    Palagay ko lalaki ang gulo pagkatapos ng new year. Dapat tama na yung spare-tire na lang siya at alisin siya sa lahat ang puwesto sa administration.

  • legislex

    Under the law, the order of suspension in an administrative case against Gov. Gwen Garcia is immediately executory.  All government offices, including the Cebu PNP, are required to observe and enforce it.  The only way to prevent its observance and enforcement is through a reversal by the Office of the President in a motion for reconsideration or by the Court of Appeals in a petition.  The Court of Appeals may also hold in abeyance its observance and enforcement by issuing a temporary restraining order (TRO).  Unless a TRO is issued by the Court of Appeals, the order of suspension should be enforced by the Police.  The mere filing of a petition with the Court of Appeals questioning the validity of the order of suspension does not bar the PNP from enforcing it.  It is thus MISLEADING for VP Binay to say that the pendency of Gov. Gwen Garcia’s petition with the Court of Appeals has the effect of preventing the Cebu PNP from enforcing the order of suspension.

  • $53950194

    ALL politicians naman basta papaalisin o suspendido, kahit na supreme court pa ang magsabi, ay babaliwala-in lang naman ang mga utos at gagamitin ang lahat ng legal strategies para ma delay o manatili sa pwesto.  Maling mali ang i padlock ang kapitolyo o ang city hall dahil ayaw ng mga suspendido umalis sa kinauupuan.  Dapat baguhin ang ganitong sistema ng pamamahalaan dahil ang lahat ng ito ay dahil lang sa KASAKIMAN sa kapangyarihan, pera atbp.

    • $53950194

      Sang-ayon din ako na dapat si Binay as UNA Leader, pinakita nya bilang lider, na dapat iwanan ni Garcia ang pwesto nya: 1) bilang pag galang sa desisyon ng ehekotibo, 2)bilang pagsunod sa proseso ng batas 3)bilang isang tatakbong presidente sa susunod na halalan, na dapat ipairal ang tama laban sa mali.  Dapat mag investigate din sya tungkol kay Garcia kung karapat-dapat nga ba itong miyembro ng UNA dahil ito si Gwen ay nasasangkot sa magkadami daming anomalya sa kapitolyo ng cebu.  Sana tumahimik nalang sya sa isyung ito dahil hindi naman ito patungkol sa UNA.  Dapat din syang dumistansya sa isyung ito dahil ito ay nakaaapekto sa kandidatura nya.  Hindi pa nga nga nanalo eh kahit sino nang umasta.

    Ang dapat sa OVP ay gawing piso and budget hanggang 2016 para hindi magamit sa kung saan saan na wala namang pakinabang ang bayan. ‘A dose of the governor’s medicine’ ika nga.

    You have lost 3 votes for any UNA candidate in  2013 elections. And definitely more in 2016. You don’t have the moral conviction necessary in leading the country and the political will in sustaining the growth that the country is experiencing now.

    mr nuno sa punso binay stop talking and challenging the PNP dahil wala ka namang magagawa the PNP is following a lawful and legal order to physically remove the suspended ex-Gov…Remember the matrona Gwen asked for it that she will be removed over her dead body then so be it..the PNP and DILG actually gave her time to think about her suspension and accept it but she is defying the order so what can we do???the 3 kings even wrongly advised the ex-Governor and st

  • ofwme2807

    the 3 kings wrongly advised the ex-Governor for their own show and benefit..they want press and political mileage in the stand off but see nothing happened..they just visit her for electioneering and photo ops…if she will be physically removed or dragged out of her office so be it…she asked for it and she will get it…no one is above the law…by the way just asking is this nuno vp binay   not committing a crime or violating his oath as VP and public official by advising the ex-Governor to defy the lawful and legal order of her suspension by DILG???maybe not but Im sure there’s some kind violation of code of ethics…

  • ofwme2807

    napahiya ang 3 loko lokong hari sa pagpunta sa provincial capitol ng Cebu para sabihan ang suspended governor na huwag bumaba sa pwesto at magmatigasan…bistado ang 3 UNA leaders na lahat sila at kanilang mga partido at kaalyado ay puro mga political dynasties mga trapos at mga balimbings lalo na ang spokesman na si mr toby dragon ball z angas ang star witness ni ex-CJ corona sa impeachment trial… UNA party hahaha

  • vodot

    The problem with Binay and his party is too much politics in their minds. He can’t discern the difference between pure governance and playing politics. There lies the big difference between you and PNoy, between you and Mar, between UNA and LP.

  • wawa2172

    What I admire sa mga Cebuano ay patuloy ang buhay nila sa pag unlad kahit gaano kagulo ang pulitika nito. Gwen vs Sanchez, Tommy vs Rama, etc. People from Mindanao especially the professionals seeks employment in Cebu. Its an industrial city in central visayas and so independent financially from imperial Manila. I guess this the reason why Gwen is being kick out of the capitol is for the LP to gain control of the province. Somehow, Garcia’s term would end soon thus the late imposition of suspension on her is no longer needed. Away bata ang nangyari kay Gwen at Sanchez, a simple admin case according to Belmonte. But PNoy had made a decision and it must be respected but Gwen could bring the issue in court for settlement. The Cebuano’s knows its well, political harassment or not, it is better for Gwen to live the capitol for peaceful purposes. My advise to Binay and Mar, face the nation on debate hindi para kayong mga bata na nag sisiraan. Mar naman you can do better than suspending Gwen for a long 6 months sa simpleng kaso. Hindi nga sinuspindi ni Robredo si Gwen dahil alam nyang away politika ito, ikaw naman masyado yatang nahalata. I don’t know if its part of LP strategy na pakagatin si Nognog Binay sa issue. I won’t vote for Nognog for sure in 2016. but I am doubting Mar too kasi pwedi pala siyang mang harass nang kalaban sa pultika kahit ibinoto nang bayan. We know you are a good man Mar, let cebuanos fight in political arena by themselves, they are politically matured than many Filipinos at ayaw nilang may nakikisawsaw. You should know better dahil bisaya  from Capiz ka rin Mar.

    Don’t be afraid and be intimidated of Mr. VP Binay for he is not the law and above the law.

    Just let him know that you are just inforcing the rule of law as provided to you by The Philippine Constitution. And to remind him that he took an oath to uphold The Philippines Constitution which is the law of the land when he became a VP.

    Insinuating he is above the rule of law then he can be charged and he need to read with his lawyer that is including his UNA Ex-Gov Garcia: Republic Act No. 6713: Title. – This Act shall be known as the “Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.”

    Reply to his memorumdum indicating the following information – don’t be afraid of him he is just trying to do some scare tactics – he thought he is the VP he can do what we wants above the law.

    Let him know in a plain and simple language: Everyone is equal under the law and nobody is above the law. All Citizen of the Republic of the Philippines should abide by The Rule of Law regardless you are a President or a Vice-President.

    Send him a copy of The Philippine Constitution and Republic Act No. 6713 as a reminder you are not insulting him – it is just a reminder for a lot of Government Official they tend to forget that they took an oath of office to uphold The Philippine Constitution. Plus let him know first and foremost He is ” A Public Servant ! ” and Vice-President is just a title of his position.

    However if this is just a statement issued by Binay’s office quoted lawyer Ira Pozon, who heads the OVP Special Concern’s Office – You don’t need to answer the inquiry concerning the action to be implemented tell her you have no authority to divulge the information for its confidential.

    And if she insist inform her to write a letter and address it to the DILG and CC: The Office of President of the Philippines.

    Don’t be intimidated with there machination scare tactics believe me the office of the President and DILG will protect you.

    Let The Rule of Law – Rules !

    Not just he is the VP of the land, he is a lawyer by profession. So Atty. Binay you know the law and you must abide it.

    dont be intimidated by vp binay you only follows order from the higher up.you follow dilg order and our president order.

  • wawa2172

    Though Binay is the VP of the country, it does not mean he would no longer opposed the president. That is why in every meeting  there is such a thing as to agree and disagree. Binay being the head of UNA party has members to lead and to take care. Same with PNoy who respect  his party, meaning that of LP decisions on many high profile issues and one of this is Gwen suspension for 6 month as recommended by the current DILG head Mar Roxas who chairs the LP so mayron conflict of interest. While Padaca was bailed courtesy of the president himself same could not be accorded to Gwen, meaning even a respite of the suspension which seems to be grave for a simple admin case. VP Binay at least have disagreed with PNoy for political reason. De Castro was a yes man of GMA then dahil mag kapartido. We may not like Binay because of dynasty and unexplained riches but it does not mean that we have to dislike him because he disagreed with PNoy. For all we know, it is not really a personal decision of Noy to axed Gwen but rather he just concurred with the party decision of unseating Garcia. It is all power play in politics, he or she who control the cebu capitol has the advantage in machinery during election. Sana may independent na lider na magaling na tatakbo against Binay and Mar para mag karoon tayo nang maayos na governance. We have already tasted the leadership of Mar and Binay, to me they are “trapo” not worth to lead our country.  

    • TOINKZ_06

      It was before the  late Sec. Robredo and the late Vice Gov. of Cebu the case was being investigated. This time the suspension order under Mar Roxas as DILG chief. Binay as a lawyer must comply and urge Gwen to follow the order. Not to threatened police officials who just execute the order.
      Its all politics really, I’m not for Mar nor  Binay they’re all TRAPOS. 

      • efffyoufools

        the process of appeal isn’t finished yet so until the court of appeal comes down with a decision on her appeal for a TRO, they cannot physically remove her. this is simple logic and while you detractors are foaming in your mouths demanding her to follow the rule of law, she too is doing what she thinks is according to the rule of law.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/UZF4OTGY4BREFE42RXP7FZJKFY Ding

        Ang ibig yata’ng sabihin ng TRO, eh, Temporary Restraining Order, di ba?
        Kung gayon nga, di ba mas ‘simple logic” na until that restraining order comes down, nothing can restrain enforcement of the suspension order?

Bagay nga ang mandarayang senador sa kanilang hanay. Convicted plunderer evicted from office. City mayor who’s wealth is at best “QUESTIONABLE”. Architect of martial law who faked his own ambush.
