Font Size

THE ANTI-RED Tape Authority (ARTA) on Monday filed a complaint before the Ombudsman against Mayor Lester D. De Sagun of San Nicolas in Batangas for violating Republic Act No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business And Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018. The case stemmed from the complaint of a certain Mrs. Gertrudes T. Gahol against the mayor “for deliberately and capriciously denying the request/permit…without justifiable cause.” Mrs. Gahol needed the electrical permit to replace a malfunctioned electric transformer. According to the complaint, Mr. De Sagun also violated the Local Government Code of 1991 for gross negligence and abuse of authority. ARTA recommended the filing of an “appropriate case” against the mayor. — Vince Angelo C. Ferreras
