Migrante files complaint vs Bertiz

October 04, 2018

THE Migrante International filed a complaint before the House committee on ethics against ACTS-OFW party-list Rep. Aniceto Bertiz III who was caught in a footage showing his airport outburst.

Migrante International Chairman Arman Hernando said Bertiz does not deserve a seat in the House not only because of the fact that he does not truly represent the Filipino migrants workers, but because of his alleged arrogance as public servant.

The complaint signed by Hernando said, “a series of his unacceptable actuations in public, as well as his manifest conflict of interest with OFWs, have made him unqualified to represent the sector.” 

“His conduct and ideals are unbecoming of an OFW representative. Thus, we seek for his outright removal from office,” Hernando said, also citing Bertiz’s alleged conflict of interest for being the owner of several recruitment agencies.

Lawmakers from the Makabayan Bloc, and a migrant worker from Oriental Mindoro, Shiela Mabunga, joined Hernando in the complaint.

However, the House has yet to receive a sworn statement detailing the complaints against Bertiz.
