NBI recommends charges vs nursing board execs

Submits report to Palace

(UPDATE) THE National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) anti-fraud division has recommended the filing of criminal charges against two officials of the Board of Nursing in connection with the scandal over leaked question for this year’s nursing licensure examinations.

Anti-fraud division chief Elfren Meneses said they recommended to the NBI legal division that Virginia Madeja and Anisia Dionisio be held liable for violation of Republic Act 8981 or the Professional Regulations Act.

Dionisio allegedly leaked test 3 and Madeja leaked test 5 of the board examination.

Meneses said the two examiners had failed to appear before the NBI on Wednesday after asking for a one-week extension to file their counter-affidavits.

The NBI official said that the investigation would continue even after they have filed the initial charges.

"Aside from determining the source of the leakage, we will also find out who benefited from it," Meneses said, stressing: "Nobody is off the hook."

Meneses added that they would also call at least 150 deans of different nursing schools to gain insights on how review centers work.

"We want to find out why nursing graduates still enroll in review schools and what they get from these," the NBI official said.

In Malacañang, Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye said Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita had received the NBI’s “preliminary report” on the test leakage, although he added that the bureau had asked for up to next week to complete its findings.

A Palace source said the report named the review centers that leaked the test questions but declined to name these.

Earlier, Ermita said the NBI findings were expected to identify the areas where the leakage occurred and determine the criminal liability of the persons involved.

Malacañang has said it favors a retake of the examination in areas where leakage too place.

Meanwhile, officials from the Office of the Solicitor General and Professional Regulation Commission met Thursday to discuss their position on the cases related to the examination controversy pending before the Court of Appeals.

These are a petition filed by Rene Luis Tadle, president of the nursing faculty association of the University of Santo Tomas, to invalidate the oaths taken by passers of the questioned examination; that of Dante Ang, who heads a presidential task force to look into the scandal, seeking the invalidation of the test results; and that filed by lawyer Rene Saguisag on behalf of board passers asking that a temporary restraining order on oath takings be lifted.
