CCBI in a statement said the BOC move to revise the earlier CAO (CAO No 3-2006) is against the law and tantamount to amending the law – a move which it says may only be accomplished by Congress.
It added it is considering taking administrative and legal action against the BOC, specifically Commissioner Morales and Atty. Umali as well as Secretary Teves. CCBI said the cases may be filed this weekend both in a civil court and the Office of the Ombudsman.
"Definitely we are taking legal action against the persons who initiated the new CAO because we believe their views are wrong," the association stressed.
As of presstime Friday, CCBI officials were at a board meeting presumably to finalize their course of action.
