Two officials of a village in Dasmariñas City, Cavite who were caught having sex during a supposed online meeting may still face charges despite quitting their posts, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said on Friday.

“Even if they resign, they will still face charges depending on what they did during their tenure in office,” Año told the Philippine News Agency in a phone interview.

DILG Undersecretary and spokesperson Jonathan Malaya said the DILG can still pursue administrative charges against Barangay Fatima Dos chairperson Jesus Estil.

Malaya stressed that “resignation does not extinguish his administrative liability since the act was done while he was in office’’.

“But he can no longer be suspended or relieved but instead fine or disqualification from public office may be imposed against him,’’ Malaya said.

He noted the DILG has yet to receive Estil’s resignation letter.

Malaya said the agency’s investigation team was asked to submit at the soonest possible time the result of its investigation to determine the liability of Estil and his partner and recommend his prosecution to the Office of the Ombudsman and the Sangguniang Panlungsod (City Council) of Dasmariñas.
