MANILA, Philippines - Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas on Wednesday confirmed that Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia has been suspended for 6 months.

Roxas, in an interview with radio dzMM, also confirmed that the suspension stemmed from charges that Garcia deliberately withheld funds for the office of Cebu Vice Gov. Agnes Almendras Magpale.
