STATEMENT BY MAYOR SARA DUTERTE
It has come to the attention of the Office of the City Mayor of Davao that there are certain transactions at the office of Environmental Management Bureau Region XI OIC Wilson Trajeco that do not follow prescribed rules and regulations on the basis of name-dropping Mayor Sara Duterte.
The public is informed that Mayor Duterte does not personally know Mr. Trajeco. She has not interfered and will never interfere in the works of EMB.
The City Government of Davao does not allow shortcuts in its regulatory and documentation processes to favor anyone and this respect for the law extends to offices outside of the City Government of Davao.
As a policy, the Office of the City Mayor and Mayor Duterte do not call or talk to other officials about transactions. If there is a need for communication, there will always be a note on the official letterhead with security features sent to concerned offices.
