Malacanang Orders Mayor Cataquiz to Vacate Post

mayor calixto cataquizWith a little over a month to go before the May 2013 elections and just days after the proclamation of San Pedro’s cityhood, Malacañang has order San Pedro Mayor Calixto R. Cataquiz to step down from office after the Supreme Court has found him guilty of graft during his stint as general manager of Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA).

The order, signed by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr., read “Respondent (Cataquiz) is hereby removed as mayor of the municipality of San Pedro, Laguna. Accordingly, he is ordered to vacate his office immediately”

For those who are not aware, Cataquiz was dismissed as general manager of LLDA “on the grounds of corrupt and unprofessional behavior and management incompetence.”

Ochoa has directed DILG Secretary Mar Roxas to enforce the ruling of the Supreme Court and remove Cataquiz  from office.  As part of his penalty,  Cataquiz is  disqualified from reemployment in the government service and he will not receive his retirement benefits.”
