DILG employee may be fired for attacking traffic aide
MANILA, Philippines - An employee of the Department of the Interior and Local Government may be dismissed after he was accused of attacking a traffic enforcer.
Arvin Vinluan, a Local Government Operations Officer at the DILG Region IV-A (Calabarzon), is facing administrative charges for allegedly attacking Jonard Jeramil of the Metro Manila Development Authority after he called the attention of Vlnluan for jaywalking in España, Manila on Monday, November 5.
Aside from physically and verbally attacking Jermail, Vinluan is said to have tried to use his employment with the DILG to avoid penalization.
He has been asked to explain the incident within 48 hours by the DILG Legal Service, and argue why he should not be charged with grave misconduct.
Such a charge may lead to dismissal, the forfeiture of all benefits in government service including retirement, and a ban from entering any position in government.
Charges were filed against Vinluan after the incident was caught on a CCTV and reported, prompting Interior Secretary Manuel "Mar" Roxas to investigate Vinluan, asserting that his behavior is not condoned by the DILG.- Rappler.com
