As directed by the Office of the Ombudsman, I submitted this Position Paper outlining the charges I filed against Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog for violation of Republic Act No. 3019, Section 8, which punishes public officials and employees who amass wealth "manifestly out of proportion to their salary and other lawful income."
