Jojo Javellana denies using illegal jumper in water businesses


Iloilo City Councilor Jojo Javellana denies using illegal electricity connection or “jumper cables” in their water refilling station in Lapuz district.

The water refilling, according to him, has long been closed and that they applied for a legitimate connection with MORE Electric and Power Corp.

Javellana said that he had a sub-metering arrangement with a friend for their electricity supply when the business was still running. (

MORE Power spokesperson Jonathan Cabrera said their apprehension team saw an electrical wire directly connecting the water refilling station to the secondary distribution line without passing through a meter.

The team discovered the alleged illegal connection on Monday in response to a tip the company received over the weekend.
