CSC dis­misses Que­zon town vice mayor

Palawan News - - TOWNS - By Aira Ge­nea Mag­dayao Re­porter

The Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (CSC) has dis­missed Que­zon mu­nic­i­pal Vice Mayor Eu­gene Ayod from pub­lic of­fice for se­ri­ous dis­hon­esty and grave mis­con­duct af­ter she asked an­other per­son to take the el­i­gi­bil­ity ex­am­i­na­tion in her be­half.

The five-page de­ci­sion against Ayod, who was the Que­zon mu­nic­i­pal trea­surer in 2004, was signed by Ali­cia dela Rosa-Bala, Com­mis­sioner Leopoldo Roberto Valderosa Jr., and at­tested by Dolores Boni­fa­cio, di­rec­tor IV Com­mis­sion Sec­re­tariat and Li­ai­son Of­fice.

The or­der di­rected the Depart­ment of In­te­rior and Lo­cal Govern­ment (DILG) to im­ple­ment De­ci­sion No. 150371 that was made on June 10, 2015, af­ter the CSC de­nied Ayod’s mo­tion for re­con­sid­er­a­tion.

The case stemmed in 2004 where a cer­tain Ro­ge­lio Lau­ros of Que­zon town ac­cused her of send­ing a male ex­am­i­nee so she could pass the el­i­gi­bil­ity ex­am­i­na­tion in 1997.

In a Septem­ber 18, 2018, mo­tion for ex­e­cu­tion, the CSC also or­dered the DILG to strip Ayod of her civil ser­vice el­i­gi­bil­ity, for­fei­ture of re­tire­ment ben­e­fits, per­pet­ual dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion from hold­ing pub­lic of­fice, and bar her from tak­ing any CSC-re­lated ex­am­i­na­tions.

She shall, how­ever, re­tain “but with mod­i­fi­ca­tion her per­sonal con­tri­bu­tions to the Govern­ment Ser­vice In­sur­ance Sys­tem (GSIS) and ac­crued leave cred­its.”

The CSC said Ayod’s dis­missal as vice mayor of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Que­zon is based on the ac­ces­sory of the penalty that states her “per­pet­u­ally dis­qual­i­fied from hold­ing pub­lic of­fice.”

On Novem­ber 17, 2004, Ayod was ac­corded a “per­ma­nent pro­mo­tional ap­point­ment” as as­sis­tant mu­nic­i­pal trea­surer.

Ayod sub­mit­ted a per­sonal data sheet (PDS) date June 16, 2004, in­di­cat­ing she had passed the Ca­reer Ser­vice Pro­fes­sional Ex­am­i­na­tion (CSPE) con­ducted on Fe­bru­ary 16, 1997, with a rat­ing of 82.16 per­cent, the CSC or­der said.

How­ever, upon ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the pic­ture of the ex­am­i­nee on record in the Pic­ture Seat Plan (PSP), the one who took the ex­am­i­na­tion was a male.

The CSC or­der said Ayod’s PDS does not match the record of the male ex­am­i­nee.

“Thus, it was ob­vi­ous that Ayod caused an­other per­son to take the Fe­bru­ary 16, 1997, CSPE in Puerto Princesa City, for and on her be­half,” a copy of the CSC or­der ob­tained by Palawan News said.

Ayod has filed a mo­tion for re­con­sid­er­a­tion in 2015 but it was de­nied by the CSC.

She also made an ap­peal be­fore the Supreme Court (SC) but this was also de­nied in Fe­bru­ary 2016.

Sought for com­ments, Ayod did not re­lease any state­ment to Palawan News.

Mean­while, Mario Da­quer, DILG pro­vin­cial di­rec­tor said Thurs­day they have not yet re­ceived a copy of Ayod’s dis­missal.

“Wala pa kam­ing natatang­gap tungkol diyan,” Da­quer said in a text mes­sage.
