MANILA, Philippines — Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas II was suspended for two months from Wack Wack Golf and Country Club following supposed outburst earlier this month.

The golf club's management said in a statement Thursday that Roxas' sanction for "violation of club rules and regulations" is to uphold the Mandaluyong resort's policies and to "maintain good order at all times for the enjoyment ... by its members."

Roxas allegedly berated and cussed employees for requiring his guest to pay the "green fee" of P5,100 last April 6.

Reacting to the suspension order, Roxas said that he accepts the club's decision as he does not consider himself "above any law, rule, or regulation."

"Accordingly I accede to it," he said.

He also reiterated his apology for those whom he hurt, and called the incident a "misunderstanding." Roxas, however, again denied having cursed at the club's staff.

"It was not my intention to hurt or insult anyone, and I did not curse at anyone either." Roxas said.

Roxas also cited his 20-year membership in the club, shares which he inherited from his father.

"Wala sa puso ko na sirain ang magandang relasyon ko sa mga caddy, empleyado at miyembro ng WackWack family," he said.
