PGMA appoints Devanadera as Acting DOJ Secretary; 5 others to various gov't posts

Manila (5 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo appointed today Solicitor General Agnes V.S.T. Devanadera as acting secretary of the Department of Justice (DOJ), and five others to various government posts.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said Devanadera will take the place of Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez who is now on sick leave.

Earlier, Devanadera was appointed by the President as officer-in-charge of the Justice Department effective on Sept. 1, 2007.

Gonzalez, 75, earlier sought permission from the President to take a one-month sick leave effective on Aug. 31, 2007 after he was hospitalized due to a bleeding stomach ulcer.

Ermita said during a press briefing this afternoon that the President had also appointed retired Gen. Reynaldo I. Berroya as assistant secretary of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC).

Former Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Arturo C. Lomibao, formerly the administrator of the National Irrigation Authority (NIA), will replace Berroya as Assistant Secretary of the Land Transportation Office (LTO), also under the DOTC.

Ermita also announced the appointment of Francisco L. Benedicto as Foreign Affairs undersecretary; Felecito L. Masagnay as commissioner of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples under the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), representing Southern and Eastern Mindanao; and Oscar A. Inocentes as presidential assistant for Judicial Affairs with the rank of undersecretary under the Office of the President. (OPS) [top]
