Ramos seeking
TRO on relief order

A petition seeking the nullification of the letter-order of Local Water Utilities Administration denying her confirmation as representative of the professional sector in the Bacolod City Water District, was filed by Marichi Fong Ramos Monday before the Regional Trial Court.

The petition with urgent prayer for temporary restraining order and/or preliminary injunction was filed against Manuel Yoingco, officer-in-charge, Office of the Acting Administrator of the LWUA, acting Administrator Eduardo Santos and Juliana Carbon, general manager of the Bacolod City Water District, to prevent them from implementing the letter of Yoingco denying the confirmation of her appointment, and ordering her replacement/removal pending further orders from the Court.

The petition of Ramos is anchored on the ground that neither Yoingco nor Santos have the authority or legal basis for denial of confirmation and for ordering her replacement/removal as director of BACIWA. moremoremore
