Maliksi dares critics to take him to court

By: Gladys Pino

 

IMUS CITY, Cavite — City Mayor Emmanuel L. Maliksi on Monday challenged supposed political opponents to “file their case in court” if they can back up corruption allegations against him.

Maliksi was reacting to a white paper spreading around the city, tainting his “legacy projects” with irregularities.

Political opponents, who are supposedly behind the white paper, claim that projects were hurriedly planned and were overpriced, among other allegations.

“Fake news,” was Maliksi’s straightforward reply to questions asked by Cavite-based journalists at the Imus Polytechnic Institute on Monday.

His legacy projects, such as the Senior Citizens’ Wellness Center, Eskwela Kooperatiba, Ospital ng Imus, and Government Center took three years to complete and the financing of some PHP2.7 billion was above board, he argued.

Maliksi said the apparent smear campaign against him appears to be politically motivated, saying “other politicians still resort to mudslinging, even going as far as spreading fake information just to win the race.”

Maliksi is running for his third and last term as city mayor against longtime political opponent and cousin, Homer Topacio Saquilayan. (PNA)
