Ramos slams Garcia
appointment in court

Bacolod City Water District director Marichi Ramos filed a motion to admit amended petition Wednesday asking the Court to include former Bacolod vice mayor Ramiro Garcia as co-respondent in the case she filed for the nullification of the replacement order, with urgent prayer for issuance of a temporary restraining order.

This came after Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella appointed Garcia as her replacement as member of the board of directors of BACIWA representing the professional sector “effective immediately,” as stated in his letter to the BACIWA Board dated Nov. 19.

Ramos had filed a petition, with prayer for temporary restraining order, against LWUA officer-in-charge Manuel Yoingco, Office of the Acting LWUA Administrator officer-in-charge Eduardo Santos, and Juliana Carbon, BACIWA general manager, to prevent them from implementing the order of Yoingco for her replacement/removal pending further orders from the Court.moremoremore
