Taguig city hall inspector nabbed for alleged 'corruption'
Taguig Mayor Lino Cayetano said corruption has no place in the city following the arrest of a corrupt inspector of the City Assessor’s Office.
Mayor Cayetano on Friday lauded the police for their entrapment operation noting that one of the major priorities of his administration’s 10-point agenda is good governance.
The mayor issued the statement as he denounced the activity of John Paul Mabilin, who was arrested in the entrapment operation inside a fastfood establishment in Barangay Ususan.
Police said Mabilin’s modus involves bloating the amount of tax to be paid by his client, after which he would offer to “help reduce” the amount.
“We are happy we conducted the operation. It’s a way of removing the few rotten eggs,” Mayor Lino said.
He added that those who may be engaged in corrupt activities will surely face the full force of the law.
During his first day in office, Mayor Lino issued a memorandum to all officials and employees of the city reminding them of the prohibition against graft and corrupt practices as stated in Republic Act No. 3019 or the “Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.”
The mayor directed all personnel to inform the Office of the City Mayor or the Human Resource Management Office of any personnel conducting these kinds of activities.
“Rest assured your city government will not tolerate any of these activities. They will be held accountable,” the mayor added.
