Feeling boss kasi! Duterte fires ex-lawmaker Jonathan Dela Cruz from GSIS


President Rodrigo Duterte has fired former ABAKADA party-list Jonathan Dela Cruz from the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) after issuing a board resolution by himself.

Duterte told The Philippine Star that Dela Cruz’s dismissal from the GSIS board was a result of a verified report against him.

He said it was GSIS chairman of the board Francisco Duque III who submitted to him the formal complaint against Dela Cruz and the results of the investigation on him.

He (Dela Cruz) was reported to me for having issued a board resolution by himself alone,” Duterte said after his recent meeting with select newspaper columnists in Malacañang. “So, I fired him.”

The President mentioned firing two Palace employees recently for alleged influence peddling but it was unclear if Dela Cruz was one of them.
