The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has ordered the dismissal of the Batangas provincial administrator for allegedly faking his career service eligibility.
In a 12-page decision dated June 25, 2013 and signed by CSC Chairman Francisco Duque 3rd, Commissioners Robert Martinez, Nieves Osorio and Director Dolores Bonifacio, the CSC officials affirmed the earlier decision of the CSC Regional Office, dismissing Victor “Vic” Reyes for various administrative cases.
Reyes was found guilty of Serious Dishonesty, Grave Misconduct, Falsification of Official Documents and Conduct Prejudicial to the Best Interest of the Service.
Besides dismissal, Reyes was also ordered penalized with the cancellation of his eligibility, forfeiture of retirement benefits, perpetual disqualification from holding public office, and barred from taking civil service examinations.
The CSC decision stated that Reyes falsified his Personal Data Sheet or PDS after indicating that he obtained an 83-percent grade in the December 10, 2004 Career Service Professional examination conducted at National Capital Region (CSC-NCR), Kaliraya Street Quezon City.
However, after verification with the Integrated Records Management Office of CSC, investigation revealed that there was no civil service examination conducted on December 10, 2004.
CSC emphasized the importance of a PDS as a public document where the applicant makes representation as to his name and qualifications to guide appointing authorities in the evaluation before an appointment to a particular position is made.
The decision states that Reyes utilized such false information for his advantage and this account of misrepresentation led to his appointment.
Reyes, a former mayor of Padre Garcia town, was appointed Provincial Administrator in Batangas by Actress-Politician Vilma Santos-Recto after winning her first gubernatorial term on July 1, 2007.
