"Sana gamitin ng mga barangay captain at mga konsehal ang kanilang mga utak. " -DILG

Since the declaration of the enhanced community quarantine by the national government on the entire island of Luzon, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has been the point man so to speak with respect to the performance or the non-performance of the local government officials.
DILG has been receiving reports that barangay officials have been collecting fees for quarantine passes, food stubs, and community IDsall of which are being considered as illegal and stupid.

DILG Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya said, "Sana gamitin ng mga barangay captain at mga konsehal ang kanilang mga utak. Sa panahong ito, nakadagdag pa sila sa problema ng Pilipinas kung hindi nila pag-iisipang mabuti ang kanilang mga ginagawa,” during his interview with Super Radyo dzBB.

Malaya explains that the local chief’s act of  collecting fees for quarantine passes, blocking cargo trucks bringing food supplies, and selling barangay pass IDs as much as P500, is patently illegal and has corresponding accountability to the law.

"They are supposed to give assistance and not exact fees from people in need in the midst of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) health emergency," he pointed out.
"I'll make this clear: Barangay officials have no authority to impose such fees and to set up checkpoints without coordinating with their mayors."
