Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) General Manager Tim Orbos on Monday placed on preventive suspension a traffic enforcer for drug use.
Traffic Aide Benedict Barreras was immediately sanctioned after he was caught in a pot session last Friday in Quezon City.
“Drug use is definitely a big no-no for employees of MMDA. We will not tolerate this kind of misbehavior,” Orbos said.
According to Orbos, the agency will let the legal process take its due course and that it will conduct its own internal investigation of the case.
Barreras, a permanent employee, is facing possible summary dismissal from the service once proven guilty.
“Rest assured that we will continue cleaning our ranks of all kinds of crooks.”
