MANILA, Philippines — The residents of Iloilo City still have not seen their mayor, Jed Patrick Mabilog.

According to his spokesperson, Atty. Mark Piad, he already filed for a sick leave to seek treatment for his diabetes.

“We know that the mayor is suffering from diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes, and because of the stress that the mayor had gone through,” he said.

Mabilog has yet to return to the country after leaving for Japan last August 29 to attend the Citynet 10th Disaster Cluster Seminar in Yokohama.

The mayor will also use the break to spend time with his family abroad.

It was not mentioned which country Mabilog will be treated in.

Meanwhile, Atty. Piad admitted Mayor Mabilog has been receiving death threats.

However, it has nothing to do with him leaving the country.

Mabilog’s camp assured that he will return to face the allegations against him on his alleged involvement in illegal drug operations in the province. — Vincent Arboleda | UNTV News & Rescue
