Capitol eng’r dismissed

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

An engineer assigned at the Negros Occidental Provincial Engineers Office has been ordered dismissed from service by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson after he was found guilty of administrative offenses of grave misconduct, vicious habits, disgraceful and immoral conduct, and conduct prejudicial to best interest of the service.

Lacson approved the dismissal of Engineer Noel Barredo from the Provincial Engineer’s Office which took effect immediately.

Provincial Legal Officer Alberto Nellas Jr, in his investigation report submitted to Lacson, said Barredo has been also barred from entering or approaching the vicinity of the offices under the provincial government.

The  Office of the Provincial Administrator received an endorsement from the Provincial Human Resources Management Office of several complaints against Barredo for action, among them disturbing joggers  and Zumba dancers while under the influence of liquor; violation of health protocols and urinating inside the Capitol Lagoon park; forcing his way into the EB Magalona healing facility without wearing mask and under the influence of liquor on September 19; and exhibiting violent behavior towards personnel at the Motorpool compound on August 25 this year.

On October 5, Nellas said they received an explanation from Barredo claiming that he was not under the influence of liquor when he was discovered by security guards urinating inside the lagoon.

Barredo further claimed he has no intention to harass a medical representative at the Lion’s Park in Bacolod City. He, however, admitted he was not able to control his anger during a drinking spree with colleagues at the PEO on August 21, because of hearsays against him, as he confessed to have spanked the hood of a vehicle.

“Your past and current actions have proven that you have gone past reason and have become a danger to your peers and society. Nellas said, apparently referring to Barredo.

In deciding to forego the investigation against Barredo due to seriousness of his offense, with evidence of guilt strong, Nellas said they found him guilty of administrative offenses, subsequently dismissed him from the service.*
