NBI wrapping up report on nursing test leakage

NBI wrapping up report on nursing test leakage
Friday, September 01 2006 @ 11:38 AM BST


Malacañang said Thursday the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is now in the "final stages of preparing the final report" on the leakage-marred 2006 nursing licensure examinations in order to file the necessary charges before the Prosecutor’s office.

Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesperson Ignacio R. Bunye said the move is in line with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s directive to apply the full force of the law to those responsible for the leakage that cast doubt on the integrity of the country’s nursing graduates.

"The NBI asked for additional time up to next week," Bunye said in a statement this afternoon.

He bared that preliminary findings of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) tasked to probe deeply into the anomaly showed that examiners Virginia Madeja and Anesia Dionisio can be administratively sanctioned for violation of Section 15A and B of Republic Act 8981, otherwise known as the PRC Modernization Act.

It is the government’s stand that the case is an isolated one but President Arroyo, determined to get into the bottom of the test leakage, wanted to charge and try those found guilty and punished to the full extent of the law.

The government had earlier maintained that the test leakage "should not be cause for any stigma" on Filipino nurses and other professionals who are among the best in the world.

Citing honesty and professional integrity as eminent traits of the Filipino workers, Bunye expressed confidence that the controversy will not affect the deployment of Filipino nurses overseas, including the United States and Japan. (PNA)
