FIVE FAKE PROFESSIONALS CONVICTED

Five (5) fake professionals – a medical technologist, a criminologist, a civil engineer and two teachers -- were recently convicted by the courts to jail. In its year-end accomplishment report, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) – Baguio Regional Office claimed continued success in strictly enforcing professional regulatory laws to protect public health, welfare and safety. Upon PRC complaint, the courts sentenced the bogus professionals to prison terms up to four years and nine months with fines for falsification of public documents and one for perjury.

The fake professionals were caught trying to renew their forged Professional ID Cards while some submitted documents later found spurious when verified by the Civil Service Commission. During investigation by the National Bureau of Investigation, some admitted having paid fixers to have their test papers re-checked or reconsidered. After paying the fixers, they received by mail forged professional ID, official report of ratings, and certificate of registration. The 2015 convictions brings to ten (10) the number of convicted pseudo professionals since PRC Baguio began its campaign against fixers and syndicates.

PRC Regional Director Teofilo Gaius M. Sison, Jr. warned the public against fixers and reiterated the PRC policy that exam results are final -- no re-checking or reconsideration -- pursuant to PRC Resolution No. 204-223. He added that employers should verify first with PRC the documents submitted by applicants for employment or promotion. Sison also thanked the Civil Service Commission-CAR and the National Bureau of Investigation-CAR for their full support and cooperation in the campaign against bogus professionals.
