Danilo Suarez to Duterte: Avoid recycling dismissed officials

Jul 11, 2018 @ 10:24

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez called on President Rodrigo Duterte to ” avoid recycling dismissed officials.”

The Quezon politiko said this goes against the President’s promise to eradicate corruption.

He cited the case of former Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, former Customs Commissioner NIcanor Faeldon, and former Social Security Systems board member Pompee La Viña.

“I agree that the President does not tolerate the misconduct of his appointees; however, I encourage him to avoid recycling dismissed officials. Furthermore, I hope that the Ombudsman would further investigate the cases of dismissed or resigned officials allegedly due to corruption, and file the necessary criminal charges to those who will be proven to have violated the law,” Suarez said.

“If the President is serious about cleaning up the government, he should rethink his decisions when it comes to his appointments. Reappointments send mixed messages. It may be better to set the highest standards in choosing his appointees from the start to avoid the “rigodon” later on,” he added.
