ZAMCELCO to reward tipsters of corrupt workers, pilferers


ZAMBOANGA CITY: The Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative (Zamcelco) would provide financial reward to concerned persons who could identify and apprehend any of its employees involved in irregularities or individuals who engaged in electricity pilferage. Lawyer Lorenzo Reyes, legal counsel of Crown Investment Holdings Inc. (CIHI), which was tapped by the National Electrification Administration (NEA) to manage the fund-afflicted Zamcelco, disclosed that a reward system “is in line with efforts to bring down Zamcelco’s systems loss which now stands at 23 percent, totaling millions of pesos.” Reyes told newsmen CIHI would reward tipsters P5,000 for pinpointing electricity pilferers, and P10,000 for erring cooperative employees. He added, Zamcelco will seek police assistance against known pilferers and “warned erring workers that they will be prosecuted, lose their jobs, and their properties forfeited.”
