CALOOCAN City Mayor Oscar “Oca” Malapitan has ordered the dismissal from the service of a job-order worker who was earlier arrested in an entrapment operation by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).
In a report reaching the office of Mayor Oca, job-order worker Vince Noveno, assigned at the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) was arrested based on a complaint of an ice plant operator who accused him of extorting money in exchange for the processing of business and license permit.
NBI agents arrested Noveno in an entrapment operation while the latter was at work at the Caloocan North City Hall Monday afternoon.
“Hindi natin kukunsintihin ang anumang maling gawain ng ating mga kawani. Dapat makulong at matanggal sa serbisyo ang mga lingkod-bayan na mapapatunayang gumawa ng labag sa batas,” Mayor Oca said.
“Sa ngayon ay nakikipag-ugnayan tayo sa NBI para malaman ang ibang detalye tungkol dito. Tinitiyak ko rin na makikipagtulungan tayo sa NBI para masampahan ng kaso ang nahuling kawani,” the mayor added.
The city chief executive also encouraged the public to report these kind of activities of officers and employees that those found to be in violation of the law can be removed immediately.
“Wala pong lugar ang katiwalian sa ating Pamahalaang Lungsod. Wala po tayong sisinuhin pagdating sa ganitong usapan. Bilang mga lingkod-bayan, tayo ang dapat maging mabuting halimbawa sa mga mamamayan,” Mayor Oca concluded.Publication Source : People's Tonight
