Man nabbed for selling fake TESDA certification


IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay: Joint operatives of the Ipil Municipal Police Station (MPS) and the Army’s 12th military intelligence company arrested a 45-year-old man for the crime of falsification of public documents during an entrapment at the outskirts of Barangay Tirso Babiera in this capital town. A flash report received by Police Provincial Office chief Col. Gerry Protacio identified the suspect as Ricky Calunsag Esteves, subject of complaints from a provincial officer of the Technical Skills and Development Authority (Tesda) regarding the sale of fake Tesda accreditation by unscrupulous persons. Protacio said Cpl. Alvin Planas, acting as police undercover, was able to transact business with Esteves, who sold him a Tesda national certificate. Esteves was immediately arrested and detained at the Ipil police station pending the filing of appropriate charges against him.
