How do we get CFA from Barangay Officials who are siding with the respondent?

We filed an ejectment complaint at our Barangay against a tenant whose lease contract had expired but wont vacate.

The problem is that the Barangay Captain is close friends said tenant.

More than 5 summons have been issued already but the respondent won't show up before the Lupon.

Instead of issuing a contempt of court, our Barangay Captain kept  insisting that we should renew the contract instead, and that "Wala siyang magagawa kundi mag-antay na lang" and that he can't give us CFA bec. the respondent didn't show up.

When we have shown that we have read the Barangay Handbook stating that the respondent is barred from making counterclaims and that we are entitled to file our case to the court, they admitted that we were right. However they resorted to delaying tactics saying that they are either too busy with some seminar or whatnot.

Should we ask the Mayor's office for help instead?
If so, can the Mayor's office issue a CFA?

Write them a letter that you intend to elevate the matter with the Ombudsman kung hindi pa ni chairman kikulusan yung concern mo. Ewan ko lang kung hindi pa umikot ang tumbong nya sa takot. Pwede ka din magsampa ng complaint sa sangguniang bayan/panlungsod, dahil meron silang disciplinary authority over the barangay chairman.

No, si barangay lang ang mag-issue ng CFA na kailangan mo. So dapat ka talaga makagawa ka na ng paraan para mapakilos mo si chairman.
