Malacañang warned on Tuesday that mayors involved in illegal mining and logging operations will be dismissed from their post.

Interior chief Eduardo Año revealed yesterday that several local chief executives benefitted from operators of these illegal activities.

“Depending on the final results of the investigation, pupuwedeng matanggal sa pwesto ang mga mayor na yan at pupuwede ring kasuhan ng kasong kriminal,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a televised briefing.

When asked to address mayors being linked to illegal mining and logging activities, Roque said: “Nandiyan kayo para ipatupad ang batas hindi para kayo ang lumabag ng batas. Hindi dapat ginagamit para sa negosyo ang inyong posisyon. Nakita natin ang danyos na dulot ng illegal logging at illegal mining sa probinsya ng Cagayan.

“You will have blood in your hands kung puprotektahan niyo ang mga illegal miners at illegal loggers.”
