Statement of the Quezon City Government:
The Quezon City Government would like to inform the public that since last week, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group/Quezon City District Field Unit, under the supervision of the Department of the Interior and Local Government, has already filed multiple criminal cases against concerned barangay officials and employees relative to the complaints in the implementation of the Department of Social Welfare and Development Social Amelioration Program or SAP. As a matter of law and procedure, the corresponding administrative cases will likewise follow. All further information and evidence gathered regarding this matter will be promptly forwarded to the PNP and DILG for their appropriate action.
Public officials and employees shall at all times uphold public interest over personal interest. As the Quezon City Government continues to cleanse its ranks of the abusive and the corrupt, it also sends out its heartfelt gratitude and commendation to all its officials and employees —- the health, city, and barangay frontliners — who have consistently risen up to the challenge, painstakenly endured discrimination or undue hate, and have continuously sacrificed their own so that others may be served and taken-cared of.
Stay home and stay safe, QCitizens!
