U.P. President Alfredo E. Pascual preventively suspends U.P. Cebu Dean Enrique Avila, U.P. Diliman and Cebu MBA Professor Ernesto P. Pineda and Budget Officer Alsidy Sharif

This dispatch has just been uploaded and was sourced from the Facebook page of U.P. Kilos Na:

“Sa wakas, pagkatapos ng mahigit na tatlong buwan, inilabas na ni Pangulong Pascual ang desisyon kaugnay ng isyu sa UP Cebu:" Dean Enrique Avila, Sharif and Pineda are served their preventive suspension from office effective May 26 - Aug 24 for further investigation under the admin. tribunal case number 2011-001 for gross negligence, grave misconduct, and gross neglect of duty."

The administration of U.P. President Alfredo E. Pascual has acted on a complaint originally filed last March 1, 2011 by the students, faculty, and staff of the University of the Philippines-Cebu College (UP Cebu) who filed a petition to UP President Alfredo E.Pascual and the UP Board of Regents demanding the resignation of UP Cebu Dean, Dr.Enrique Avila, Budget Officer Alsidy Sharif, and Consultant Ernesto Pineda for allegedly conspiring to commit acts in flagrant violation of The Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Actor Republic Act No. 3019, The Government Procurement Act or Republic Act No. 9184,and The UP Charter of 2008 or Republic Act No. 9500.

On March 15, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond Palatino filed House Resolution 1091, which seeks an inquiry, in aid of legislation, on the same allegations versus Avila, Pineda and Sharif.

More information on the background of this case can be obtained here and here and here.


According to U.P. KIlos Na, aside from the 90-day preventive suspension from office of U.P. Cebu College (UPCC) Dean Enrique Avila, Alsidry Sharif and Ernesto Pienda, UPCC Associate Dean Richelita Galapate has been designated as OIC.
