‘VALU­ABLE’ LAWYER WAS NOT FIRED FROM DOF

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - LETTERS -

May I clar­ify for the sake of ac­cu­racy a por­tion of the col­umn of Ra­mon Tulfo ti­tled “BIR row turns into full-blown war” (Metro, 7/15/17). Lawyer Gau­den­cio Men­doza, who was my for­mer un­der­sec­re­tary of fi­nance for le­gal and rev­enue oper­a­tions group, was not kicked out or fired from the Depart­ment of Fi­nance. To be fair to Men­doza, he vol­un­tar­ily re­signed from the DOF to pur­sue his le­gal ca­reer in the pri­vate sec­tor.

I ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion of Men­doza with re­gret.

As a non­lawyer, I found Men­doza to have been ex­tremely help­ful and valu­able in pro­vid­ing con­sis­tently sound le­gal ad­vice on ma­jor is­sues and projects pre­sented to the DOF. GARY B. TEVES, for­mer sec­re­tary, Depart­ment of Fi­nance
