In an article from Sunstar.com.ph, the temporary restraining order that halted the effectivity of the six dismissal orders for 60 days that are filed against incumbent city mayor of Cagayan de Oro City Oscar “Oca” Moreno last Tuesday, August 29.
Following the expiration of the TRO, Lawyer Dale Mordeno said that he still hopes that the Court of Appeals (CA) will release a writ of preliminary injunction which will preserve the status of Moreno as the current mayor of the city while his cases are still being heard.
On the same day of the TRO’s expiry date, CA released the injunction order and stopped the implementation of the dismissal cases of Moreno and may now continue with his duties as the city’s mayor.
The 11-page resolution was issued by Associate Justices Louis Acosta, Edgardo Camello, and Oscar Badelles.
It can be remembered in 2013 that Antonio Nuñez filed graft charges against Moreno regarding the mayor’s involvement in a questionable lease of contract of heavy equipment during his tenure as the governor of Misamis Oriental. The complaint then led to 6 dismissal orders released by the Office of the Ombudsman against Moreno.
