MANILA, Philippines — The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) issued show-cause orders (SCO) against five mayors and 100 barangay captains for supposedly violating protocols of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

“Sa mayors, may 5 mayors, tapos sa barangay captains umaabot na mga 100. Mostly, ay dito sa Metro Manila,” Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said in an interview on dzBB on Thursday when asked about updates on SCOs filed against local officials.

The local officials with SCOs will be asked to respond to their alleged violations.

Año then noted that local executives will also face formal complaints if it is proven that they violated provisions of  the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.
