Mayor Jerry Treñas of Iloilo City refuted claims that he was meddling in councilors’ decisions about matters discussed in the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP).

Treñas was referring to claims that he blocked proposals to investigate the mercy killing of dogs in Mandurriao district on orders of the City Veterinarian’s Office.

He does not get involved in issues raised by the SP, nor does he tell the councilors what to do, the city mayor said. (

“I do not even know what issues they are taking up in the council. It’s not good because the city council knows what they are doing. We cannot dictate the councilors. I am not dictating them,” he said in the vernacular.

The Iloilo City Government said it was already investigating the euthanasia or mercy killings of dogs and puppies caught by the City Veterinarian’s Office.
