Duterte, sinibak si ERC chair Salazar

TULUYAN nang sinibak ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte si Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) chairperson at Chief Executive Officer Jose Vicente Salazar.

Sa ipinalabas na kalatas ng Office of the Deputy Executive Secretary for Legal Affairs, makikitang si Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea ang lumagda sa nasabing desisyon.

“The Office of the President has found Atty. Jose Vicente B. Salazar administratively liable for two (2) counts of Simple Misconduct and one (1) count of Grave Misconduct. The dismissal from Grave Misconduct carries with it all accessory penalties, including the perpetual disqualification from holding public office and forfeiture of retirement benefits,” ang nakasaad sa kalatas.

Sinabi ng Malakanyang na sapat ang ebidensya laban kay Salazar kung saan maraming paraan ng proseso para sa procurement ng audio visual project ng ERC upang matiyak na ang pinaboran nitong supplier ang makakuha ng kontrata.

“It was also undisputed that Attorney Salazar usurped the power of the ERC as a collegial body when he unilaterally issued orders in connection with the application for the renewal of the Electric Power Purchase Agreements between FDC Utilities, Inc. – Misamis and several distribution utilities, and when he appointed certain ERC officials and employees without the imprimatur of the [other] Commissioner,” batay sa kalatas.

“Thus, the President’s decision,” ang nakasaad pa rin sa kalatas. KRIS JOSE
