Camarines Norte Governor Edgardo Tallado was slapped with a six-month suspension by the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with a video of him and his alleged mistress, went viral in social media.
In a six page decision of the Office of Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon, signed by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, Tallado is facing administrative cases after committing disgraceful and immoral conduct.
According to the Ombudsman, Tallado did not deny having extra-marital affairs with a certain ‘Kaye De Jesus’.
The Ombudsman added that it has jurisdiction on the case of Tallado even if the latter insists that he has a pending complaint charge filed against him at the Office of the President.
In line with this, the Ombudsman has ordered the Department of Interior and Local Government to implement the suspension order against Tallado.
