In a request dated January 4, 2019, Ombudsman requested Labella to record his counter-oath inside 10 days. 

"Discovering enough premise to continue with the examination of the case, this Office orders respondent to document his/her counter-affirmation and other contesting proof to the said grievance… ," read piece of the marked by Paul Elmer Clemente, Deputy Ombudsman for the Visayas. 

In November 2018, councilors Margarita Osmeña, Sisinio Andales, Alvin Arcilla, Eugenio Gabuya Jr., Mary Ann de los Santos, Jerry Guardo, David Tumulak, and Joy Augustus Young documented two authoritative grievances for Grave Abuse of Authority and infringement of Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees against Labella. 

The criminal case they documented is Section 3 (e) of the Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. 

The eight councilors held up the charges after they felt that Labella, as the directing officer, manhandled his power by causing a halt in the board. 

"We attempted to contend our situation by betting on the later Javier controlling yet our contentions failed to attract anyone's attention. Directing Officer Labella depended on incorrect legitimate details and utilized the law to go around what is generally a reasonable and unambiguous Supreme Court administering," the protest read. 

This was after Labella "slaughtered" the movement of Osmeña for the assignments of chairmanships and enrollments on July 4, 2017 amid the yearly hierarchical session.

"The Vice Governor, as the Presiding Officer, will be viewed as a piece of the SP for motivations behind finding out if a majority exists. In deciding the number which establishes as the lion's share vote, the Vice Governor is barred. The Vice Governor's entitlement to cast a ballot is simply unexpected and emerges just when there is an attach to break," the SC administering read. 

With the ongoing request from the Ombudsman, Labella is denied from recording movement to reject, slow movements, movements for augmentation of time and movements for reexamination, among others. 

"Inability to go along as in this coordinated inside the period endorsed by tenets will be considered a waiver of the directly to exhibit the gathering's counter-oath or answer sworn statement and the examination will continue as per existing principles," it included. 

Labella said he is going to document his counter-sworn statement, including he simply got the request last Monday. 

"I am certain since it is all the more an issue of existing laws and statute; it refutes any risk at all… There's extremely a choice of Supreme Court, if there is elucidations of laws and law it discredits obligation," he said. 

Andales said he is content with the ongoing request from the Ombudsman.
