The complaint filed against him before the Office of the Ombudsman in Central Visayas is politically motivated, Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan said.

The Ombudsman earlier received a request for assistance signed by residents from different barangays in the city.

They wanted Chan, through the City Treasurer, City Budget Officer, and City Accountant, to inform the public about the donations that were received by the city for the victims of Typhoon Odette. (

Chan said that he received a complaint from residents, who were tricked into signing a blank piece of paper.

The complainants, he added, were allegedly promised to receive financial assistance and food packs from those who recruited them to affix their signature as complainants.
