MANILA (UPDATE) - President Rodrigo Duterte has terminated the services of executive director of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) as part of the administration's crackdown on graft and corruption, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Tuesday.

Code:
    Sec Panelo: The Palace announces the termination of the appointment of Mr. Jose Antonio E. Goitia as the Executive Director of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission. @DZMMTeleRadyo — Joyce Balancio (@joycebalancio) September 10, 2019

Panelo said the President fired PRRC head Jose Antonio E. Goitia "pursuant to the President's continuing mandate to eradicate graft and corruption, and to ensure that public officials and employees conduct themselves in a manner worthy of public trust."

"We hope that this shall serve as another example that this Administration does not -- and will never -- tolerate corrupt practices in the bureaucracy and in public service," Panelo said in a statement.

In a speech in Malacañang Tuesday afternoon, Duterte said he fired Goitia because the latter has been telling people he will be appointed in the Bureau of Customs.

"He's telling people he will be appointed Customs collector, and already was collecting," he said.

The President also said there will be other officials from the PRRC who will be fired.

Goitia was advised to turn over all official documents and properties in his possession to the PRRC's Office of the Deputy Executive Director for Finance and Administrative Services.

"I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the President for entrusting me to serve as Executive Director of Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC)," Goitia said in a statement posted on Facebook.

Goitia was appointed as PRRC head in 2017.

Duterte earlier transferred the chairmanship of the PRRC to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) from the Department of Budget and Management.

The PRRC was formed through an executive order signed by President Joseph Estrada on Jan. 6, 1999 to rehabilitate Pasig River, which connects the Laguna de Bay and the Manila Bay and cuts across Metro Manila.

Under the Estrada order, the budget secretary and the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority general manager shall exercise co-chairmanship of the commission.

Duterte had earlier fired officials on suspicion of corruption and wrongdoing, including the chief of the Food and Drug Administration in May and over 50 Customs officials in June.

Pasig River inspection bares trash, fecal wastes, rundown boats

Officials who made a trip along the 27-kilometer Pasig River were greeted with floating trash, rundown boats and establishments and residences built very close to the edge of the water, which have been plaguing the condition of the historic river.

According to a report by Mark Salazar for Balitanghali on Wednesday, the river was inspected by Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu, Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Danilo Lim and officials from the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC).

The officials traveled upstream from Manila Bay up to Marikina City.

Fecal waste from informal settlers along Baseco and Del Pan in Manila who are yet to be relocated were found.

Discharge of tugboats along Binondo were also found polluting the river, while old government boats were left parked near the Pasig River lighthouse.

Many tributaries of the river were found to lack pumping stations which are supposed to filter trash from the water before it is discharged to Pasig River and eventually to Manila Bay.

Pasig River has 47 tributaries including the four major river tributaries composed of the San Juan River, Marikina River, Taguig River, and Napindan Channel.

The MMDA chairman said the World Bank has granted the Philippines a loan in order to rehabilitate and create more pumping stations.

Compounding these problems hounding the river are industrial sites and condominiums that discharge harmful substance into the river.

Cimatu said notices of violation for the establishments concerned are already with the Adjudication Board of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Authorities added that they are struggling to implement the 10-meter easement of coastlines because of private buildings that were previously allowed to own property due under the old three-meter easement requirement. —Julia Ornedo/LDF
