Nursing board examiner nabbed for illegal recruitment

Nursing board examiner nabbed for illegal recruitment

(UPDATE) ONE of the nursing board examiners linked to the leakage of questions for this year’s licensure tests was arrested by police in her home in Taguig City Thursday night for alleged illegal recruitment.

Virginia Madeja was immediately rushed to the Philippine National Police (PNP) General Hospital after her blood pressure shot up and she complained of shortness of breath.

By Friday afternoon, she was well enough to be transferred to the PNP Custodial Center, GMA Network’s Flash report said.

Senior Superintendent Asher Dolina, chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in the National Capital Region Chief, confirmed his men served a warrant of arrest issued by the Regional Trial Court in Manila against Madeja for alleged illegal recruitment and estafa (fraud).

The warrant stems from charges filed by two nurses who Madeja, who introduced herself as the manager of Total Care Staffing Service, allegedly duped into paying 500 dollars in 2001 for what turned out to be non-existent job abroad.

Dolina said a check with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) showed Total Care is not registered with the agency.

The police official said the complainants recognized Madeja from TV news footage of her attendance at the Senate investigation into the nursing exam leakage.

On Monday, Dolina said they will turn Madeja over to the court, which will decide where she will be detained.

Professional Regulation Commission chair Leonor Tripon-Rosero was quoted by GMA 7 as saying she regretted the arrest of Madeja but that she had no knowledge of the charges faced by the board examiner.
