MANILA, Philippines — The Makati City Council has unanimously passed a resolution suspending for 12 months Barangay Magallanes Chair Jose Mari A. Alzona for abusing his authority when he withheld the salaries of two barangay workers without due process.

In City Resolution No. 2024-048, the council suspended Alzona for improperly withholding the salaries of administrative aides Sarah Jane M. Cama and Robert P. Sunga without proper notice and without seeking an explanation for absences.

The two cases were consolidated and the council’s Committee on Laws, Rules, and Ethics held a hearing where evidence was submitted and testimonies were heard from the two complainants and the respondent. Following the hearing, the committee recommended Alzona’s 12-month suspension and the council passed the resolution on June 5.

The suspension is set to take effect on June 20.
