OTS will not tolerate employees flouting the law

Office for Transportation Security (OTS)

The Office of Transportation Security (OTS) said it will never ever allow anybody intending to flout the law, much more so that it drags the whole agency, resulting in diminished public confidence.

Thus said OTS spokesperson Kim Marquez, in the wake of attention that has been drawn to an alleged illegal recruitment by an OTS employee identified as Nelly Dimaano wherein she allegedly collected P25,000 each for 27 applicants.

Dimaano, Marquez said, is a former Transport Security Accreditation and Training Management Service of OTS until she went on indefinite leave of absence before the illegal activities were discovered.

The sweeping allegations against Dimaano were uncontroverted in a broadcast episode and she even deliberately admitted that she had in fact received money in exchange for placing the victims under the employ of the OTS, a statement from the OTS said.

“The OTS management has since conducted an investigation to uncover those involved in the scheme and made its stand to put a stop to such practice, which it considers to be both patently and grossly immoral and illegal. We shall file cases against those officers and personnel involved and guilty of such gross misconduct, and make sure that appropriate safeguards will be implemented to prevent similar incidents”, Marquez added.

Marquez also said: “The OTS also advises the public to submit their job applications directly to the OTS Human Resource Section – Administrative and Finance Service through e-mail address: [email protected]. We encourage the public to report any instance of similar illegal recruitment activities to the Office of the Administrator, through the Public Affairs Division, at e-mail address: [email protected].”
