Marikina Rep. Bayani Fernando hits Marikina Mayor Marcy Teodoro for stopping justice hall project
Marikina could have been enjoying the use of a new, modern, and spacious justice hall were it not for Mayor Marcy Teodoro, according to Marikina Rep. Bayani Fernando.
Fernando, who is running for mayor, said Congress had allocated funds for the construction of this new building, but Teodoro blocked the project.
On Facebook, he shared the plans for the new justice hall to show how it would have looked, and expressed regret at the missed opportunity.
“Ang BAGONG JUSTICE HALL na nagagamit na sana ngayon subalit hinarang ni Mayor Marcy. May pondo na sana mula sa Kongreso. Sayang,” he said.
Had the new justice hall been constructed, the old justice hall would be used as the city jail and the headquarters of the police, he said.
The current city jail is already too crowded, he pointed out.
