PIA Press Release

Palace denies motion of treasury exec for falsifying credentials

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (11 October) -- Malacanang recently denied a motion of a regional director of the Bureau of Local Government and Finance(BLGF) here for falsifying his scholastic records and affirmed the order of the Presidential Anti-Graft Commission(PAGC) ordering his dismissal from the government service.

In a four-page resolution dated July 19, executive secretary Eduardo Ermita, acting by the authority of President Gloia Macapagal-Arroyo denied the motion for reconsideration of Orlando Mina, BLGF regional director for Cagayan Valley " since there is no cogent reason to disturb the earlier decision by the PAGC."

Palace also ordered PAGC to push through with its decision ordering the regional director's dismissal from the government service.

Ermita also cited Mina's apparent violation of government laws such as causing undue injury to the government, accountability of public officials and the justness and sincerity of public officials and their loyalty to the people at all times.

PAGC's earlier decision was signed by lawyer Manuel Gaite, PAGC chair and Malacanang's deputy executive director for legal affairs who said Mina was found guilty of falsifying his school credentials which constituted dishonesty, deliberate misrepresentation and grave misconduct prejudicial to the interest of government service.

PAGC's order also stripped Mina of his retirement benefits and leave credits and further disqualified from re-employment in the government.

Mina's case stemmed from the complaint of Johnny Bacena, former office-in-charge of the municipal treasurer's office in Quezon town.

Before his assignment in Cagayan Valley, Mina had worked as treasurer in Palawan City, Quirino province and assistant regional director for Cagayan Valley, Cordillera and Ilocos regions before earning his full pledged regional directorship. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
