At least 45 mayors face complaints before the Office of the Ombudsman over their failure to organize local anti-drug abuse councils (ADAC).

The complainants were filed last March 14 and 20 by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

“Despite several directives from the DILG and the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), the concerned mayors still failed or refused to comply with the said orders and their towns are among those that are without an organized and functional ADAC,” said DILG Secretary Eduardo Ano in a statement.

“For their refusal or neglect to organize their local ADAC, the 45 mayors have committed grave misconduct in office and gross dereliction of duty,” he added.

The DILG cited that back in May 21, 2018 it signed a joint memorandum with the DDB which enjoined local government units to form ADACS.

Those facing complaints include 15 from the Bicol Region; seven in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM); five in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR); five from Palawan; four in Central Visayas, three in Laguna and Quezon; two in Cagayan Valley; and one in Easter Visayas.
