Sun.Star Network Online - Ex-village chief backers picket Justice Hall
DAVAO CITY -- Supporters of Roberto Olanolan, one time chief of Barangay 76-A, picketed the Hall of Justice in Matina Wednesday to protest a decision dismissing the civil case he filed against three officials in line with his battle to get back leadership of the village.
...Olanolan earlier sued City Administrator Wendel Avisado, City legal Officer Melchor Quitain, and City Accountant Rizalina Justol for refusing to recognize him as the village chief of Barangay 76-A and refusing to release government funds to him.
...The problem started when the Supreme Court ruled several months ago that Celso Tizon and not Olanolan is the legitimate barangay captain of 76-A.
has been contesting this and has been saying he
never received a copy of this decision.Mayor Duterte, however, said in the past months that because the Supreme Court already decided on the case, then City Hall would abide by the decision and would no longer recognize Olanolan as village chief.
As a result of this stance, City Hall has stopped recognizing Olanolan
as the barangay captain, prompting him to file a civil case that Carpio just recently dismissed.Olanolan
has already filed a motion for reconsideration insisting Carpio erred in dismissing the case since the court's intervention is badly needed in the ongoing dilemma, adding that as a result his
barangay personnel have not been receiving their salaries and honoraria for five months now.
While seeking the court's intervention, Olanolan
has repeatedly been quoted as saying that he
does not recognize the Supreme Court's ruling, which happens to be the highest judicial body over and above the lower courts. (JGR of Sun.Star Davao/Sunnex)

Sun.Star Network -- Speak Out
In 2002 citywide barangay elections were held and Roberto Olanolan was voted into the captaincy of Barangay 76-A, presumably with the blessing of the Commission of Elections who are the people who organize the counting of the votes and announce the winner (I write presumably because I don't have newspaper cuttings that far back).
understandably didn't think much of this and brought the dispute to the attention of the Supreme Court.These gentlemen deliberated and in November of 2004 ordered the parties to swap places.The enforcing agency, region 11's Department of Interior and Local Government (the DILG), the people who hire and fire barangay captains, acted p.d.q. In December Tizon stepped down and Olanolan once again became barangay captain.
Now the plot thickens.In March of this year the Supreme Court changed its mind (why?) and ordered the two antagonists to swap places yet again.Olanolan
out, Tizon in.
has yet to relinquish the barangay hall.The DILG (the L stands for local, decentralized) is paralyzed for want of a piece of paper from central office.
