The City Legal Office is set to conduct a fact-finding investigation to ascertain culpability in the alleged collection of fees from illegal vendors at the main public market.

City Legal Officer Atty Jesus Carbon said that the proceeding is based on the order of Zamboanga Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco- Salazar to determine culpability.

Climaco- Salazar reportedly directed Carbon to ascertain the identities of persons involved in the market collection and their corresponding authority.

At present, the City Legal Office is requesting a list of illegal stall holders from City Admnistrator Angelique Go.

Go initially reported the existence of 525 illegal stalls inside the main public market.

Carbon said that the investigation will commence the soonest possible time. (Bhong Simbajon)
