Professional regulation execs face contempt charge

FOR snubbing the Senate hearing on the nursing examination leakage, Senator Richard Gordon on Wednesday recommended to cite in contempt officials of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).

In a hearing by the Senate committee on civil service and government reorganization, Gordon said PRC officials should also be relieved of their posts for not cooperating with the Senate to address the nursing leakage issue. "These persons should be extracted from PRC like a bad tooth," Gordon said.

PRC chairperson Leonor Tripon-Rosero and Commissioners Renato Valdecantos and Avelina dela Rea did not attend the hearing. Efren Meneses Jr., chief of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI)-Anti Fraud and Computer Crimes Division, also snubbed the hearing.

The three PRC officials were subpoenaed by the Senate committee on civil service and government reorganization chaired by Senator Rodolfo Biazon to appear in the hearing and shed light on the controversy surrounding the June 11 and June 12 nurses licensure examination.

Biazon said Rosero sent him two letters invoking Memorandum Circular (MC) 108 for not attending the hearing. "They did not come but they allowed themselves to be interviewed and issued press releases," Biazon said.

He also got irked upon learning that the PRC officials were present in Wednesday's hearing at the House of Representatives on the nursing leakage. The resource persons were provided with advanced questions.

Senate President Manuel Villar said the Senate will allow the PRC and NBI officials concerned to explain why they should not be cited for contempt for ignoring the subpoena.

"We will ask their explanations and we will schedule another hearing and if they again failed to attend it, we will be obliged to use the power vested upon us by the Constitution, which is to cite them for contempt and issue arrest warrant," he said.

George Cordero, former Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) president who also the presidents of Inress Review Center and Philippine College of Health Sciences (PCHS), appeared in Wednesday's hearing in which he denied any involvement in the nursing leakage.

He denied that the questions presented in the final coaching conducted by the Inress Review Center were the same questions in the nurses licensure test.

Meanwhile, Malacañang said if there is going to be a retake of the nursing examinations, it should be in Baguio City where the alleged leakage took place.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said the idea is in line with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's pronouncement that the innocent should not be punished along with the guilty.

"The President's position (is) that those who passed should not have a retake except those who in the investigation of PRC and the NBI would show that they were the ones who may have taken advantage of the leakage in question. Malacañang's position is not a total retake for everybody but only for those affected," he said.

Ermita said NBI director Nestor Mantaring will submit on Friday to the justice department the results of the criminal investigation on the leakage.

He said the NBI finding is that there is a leakage and that there are members of the nursing board who knew about it.

But he said he is not yet aware of the specific places where cheating occurred or about the recommendations of the NBI on how the issue will be treated and who should be held accountable for it. (REC/JMR/Sunnex)


Akala yata ni Gordon diyos sa na hindi na siya pwedeng isnabin

Gusto nila pag ipinatawag nila eh lumuhod na sa kanila

>> bakit lahat ng examinees ng baguio ang magreretake? paano ung mga pumasa na nagself-review lang at nagkataong sa baguio kumuha ng exam?
>> so sa pilipinas, kapag may mga sumigaw ng sunog, sila ang may gawa ng sunog kaya sila ang paparusahan ganun ba?
>> kung ganito ang mangyayari, siguro sa mga susunod na exam kapag may nakakita ng leakage, wala ng magsasalita kasi parurusahan sila na retake.

retake lahat ng taga baguio. lalo na yung mga whistle blowers!

tanong niyo kay erfe yan mga taga baguio, sikat na sikat na kayo

dapat lang magretake yung baguio. sabi nila may leakage at sila din mismo sumisigaw ng retake. so sila parusahan. mga sira ulo kasi sila, dinala lahat nila agad sa media
