SSS workers call for speedy resolution of case vs officials
by SSS release

The Alert and Concerned Employees of the Social Security System (ACCESS) called for a speedy and impartial resolution of the ongoing case against the four pension fund officials involved in the questionable purchase of shares of stock in the open market.

ACCESS President Amorsolo Competente asked SSS employees to show their support for the immediate and fair resolution of the ongoing administrative complaint through proper investigation while observing due process, citing that trial by publicity has already compromised the integrity of the institution.

Inaanyayahan ng pamunuan ng union ang lahat ng manggagawa ng SSS sa buong bansa na makiisa sa blue ribbon day. Ang asul na laso ay ating isusuot bilang simbolo ng ating pagkakaisa sa layunin na matuklasan ang katotohanan sa likod ng mga kontrobersiya ang pagpapakita ng masugid na suporta  para sa ating minamahal na SSS,” Competente said when they held the blue ribbon day on Nov. 6.

Competente also appealed to Social Security Commissioner Jose Gabriel La Vina to stop the trial by publicity and let the case prosper in the Social Security Commission.

Ang pamunuan ng ACCESS ay naniniwala na marapat pairalin ang tamang proseso sa pagtuklas sa katotohanan upang makamit ang tunay na hustisya at hindi idinadaan sa publisidad. Lubos naming kinokondena ang kabi-kabilang alegasyon laban sa apat na matataas na opisyal ng SSS habang ang imbestigasyon ay kasalukuyang isinasagawa ng SSC,” Competente said.

He clarified that the officials included in the administrative complaint are career officials, contrary to reports saying they are presidential appointees.

The union head also pleaded not to use the controversy for political mileage of several personalities.  “Commissioner La Viña, kapag ipinagpatuloy ninyo ang trial by publicity, maniniwala na ako na ginagamit niyo ang SSS for political purposes.”

SSS management, meanwhile, said it adheres to the ethical standards of the institution.

“Everyone has a right to due process. This blue ribbon is a gesture of support to the SSS ethical standards. We are all committed to entail the highest level of integrity of SSS which has been compromised by this trial of publicity of an administrative complaint.”

Based on the SSS Code of Ethics’ Prohibited Acts and Transactions, any SSS official or employee is prohibited to use or divulge confidential or classified information officially known to him by reason of his office and not made available to the public, either to further his private interests, or give undue advantage to anyone; or to prejudice the public interest.

It also prohibits disclosing confidential information given by parties, counsel, witness, or any other person during investigation in a pending administrative case except when expressly authorized by the disciplining authority.

SSS said it welcomes and supports the plan of the Congress to conduct probe, as well the participation of other government agencies like the National Bureau of Investigation, Office of the Ombudsman, and Capital Market Integrity Board to ensure that the investigation will be complete and thorough.

“SSS is equally committed to pursue a no-nonsense investigation to ensure that we ferret out the truth and duly establish the guilt or innocence of persons complained of with due regard to due process. We assure Congress of our full cooperation and support in the conduct of its investigation,” the pension fund said in a statement.

“But in no way that our operations will be affected by this media fiasco. We have about 3,500 members and pensioners joining us today for our Members’ Day. Let us embrace them with our dedication to public service,” it added.
