SAN JOSE, Antique, 01Oct2013 (PNA) – Newly appointed National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Director General Medardo Grasparil Delimos has vowed swift and fair action in the filing of cases against persons found to have violated the law, specifically those involved in the pork barrel scam and the Malampaya fund scam.
In an interview, Director Delimos who was named Officer-In-Charge of the NBI only last Friday, said he has no personal interest in the persons involved in the scam.
“I will only be doing my job as I have always been doing for the last 29 years when I joined the NBI. I don’t care if the Governor of Antique is involved or will be one of the respondents in the cases that we will be filing soon with regards to both the pork barrel scam or the Malampaya fund scam,” he said.
Delimos, a full-blooded Antiqueño, bared that he was on his way home to Sibalom, Antique when he was informed of his designation.
“I’m happy with this and I can say that this is a reward for my services. I intend to give the people of Antique pride as head of the NBI,” he said.
Atty. Delimos attended primary school at Sibalom Central School and was transferred by his parents to the capital town of San Jose where he finished his elementary education.
He took an Associate in Arts course at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City where he also graduated from Bachelor of Laws in 1983. He took the bar in November 1983, the result of which was released only in May 1984.
While home in Antique last weekend, Director Delimos also took time to attend the 26th anniversary of the Alpha Phi Beta Antique chapter headed by Atty. Cornelio Aldon.
“I’m glad of this opportunity to serve our country as the top man of the NBI and I am happy that our brothers in the Alpha Phi Beta are celebrating for this. There are many of our brothers in the Alph Phi Beta who are now in the top echelons of the government as well as in the private sector.
I’m glad that my appointment will also serve as an inspiration to all of you to do good and always do your best in performing your tasks in your respective offices,” Director Delimos told the Alpha Betans in Antique. (PNA)
