Former Provincial Treasurer Nilda Generoso denied that she had anything to do with the disposal of public documents and property of the provincial government, shortly before her retirement on Dec. 1, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said yesterday.
This was after a show cause order was issued on Nov. 27 against her by Diaz, who, with security guard Dan Rey Malbja intercepted Vicencio Vergara, a job order casual assigned at the Provincial Treasurer’s Office, carrying and transporting two black bags and a white sack, containing a summary of receipts, collection reports up to 2016, with garbage, among others, being brought out from PTO at 7 p.m. of Nov. 26.
Generoso, in her letter-reply to the Provincial Legal Office, maintained that she had no participation and did not order it, and agreed that the disposal of documents was illegal during that particular hour, Diaz said.
He added that Generoso said the job order employee assigned to her office did it on his own.
“If there is a problem with regards to the availability of important documents because of what happened, an investigation will proceed, but if there is no problem and everything is intact, there is no issue,” Diaz said.
Vergara was also ordered to explain his side, Diaz added.
“We don’t know yet its gravity, but we will evaluate if there is a grave effect,” he said, adding that they want to know also if that was an isolated incident, or a similar case had happened before. Asked if it will have an effect on the processing of the retirement papers of Generoso, Diaz said it will depend on the evaluation, and if there will be an effect on the performance of the new Provincial Treasurer, Amy Grace Bolivar.*
