The Bautistas were also accused of violating the Administrative Code by neglecting their duty, committing misconduct and conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service.
According to VACC founding chair Dante Jimenez described Quezon City as No. 1 in drug trafficking based on the number of those who surrendered to the police for their involvement in drugs and on the number of those summarily killed under the government’s merciless war on drugs.
The group said that the primary evidence they have against Mayor Bautista is the admission of his brother after being positive of drug use.
In its complaint, the VACC said it was unlikely that the mayor had not known of his brother’s drug use. “Being the mayor (and) having deep-rooted intelligence of the city’s operation, it is impossible for respondent mayor to not have known of Councilor Hero’s drug problems,” the complaint said.
