SORSOGON CITY (BicolToday.com/28-Feb-2013) – Controversial Sorsogon DepEd personnel officer Nydia Bercasio was rushed after lunchtime to a local hospital here by her subordinates when she collapsed inside her office. Bercasio has the habit of taking her lunch together with her staff in their office.

Witnesses said that she was unconscious when transported for medical attention. The official is now under observation at the intensive care unit of Sorsogon Doctors Hospital as of this writing.

Bercasio also holds the position as officer in-charged and board of director of the Sorsogon Public Schools and Employees Cooperative, Inc. which is saddled with financial liquidity and faces anti-graft charges filed by the former general manager of the coop.

The former manager alleged that Bercasio on two instances received seven hundred fifty thousand pesos (P750,000.00) from the coop though she is not a member. Together with the board of directors and the coop treasurer, they are facing investigation by the prosecutor’s office here for syndicated estafa filed by investors all of Gubat town because of non-payment of matured financial obligations and accruing interest by the cooperative.

One of the investors who informed BicolToday.com about the condition of Bercasio but refuses to be identified said that the problems of the cooperative and its enormous obligations to its members and investors took its toll on the health of Bercasio. The pressure was too much for her, adding, that it does not free the cooperative from its obligations. He did not hide his disgust the way the cooperative is manage by the present board and officer.

Reach for comment, the attending physician did not issue any statement regarding the condition of Bercasio. [BicolToday.com]

  1. My name is Mark, from Melbourne Victoria Australia. Just over 4 years ago, i met and married a lady from Sorsogon, we now both live in Australia. My wife who had her life savings invested in this co-op suggested i also invest my savings approx P2,000,000 pesos in the same co-op, which i did. After trying for several months to get some interest payments, and nothing forecoming, i flew to Sorsogon and had a personal meeting with Nydia, i asked where was our money? She told me straight to my face (and i had several witness’s with me) that it had gone, when i asked was it because of corruption, she replied yes! I have no sympathy for this woman, or her department, she is a crook!
