PRESIDENT Rodrigo R. Duterte has fired the head of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission for alleged corruption, his spokesman said yesterday.

The president terminated Jose Antonio E. Goitia in line with his drive to eradicate government corruption, presidential spokesman Salvador S. Panelo said in a statement.

Malacañang asked Mr. Goitia, whom Mr. Duterte appointed to the commission in 2017, to turn over all official documents and properties to his deputy.

“We hope that this shall serve as another example that this administration does not and will never tolerate corrupt practices in the bureaucracy and in public service,” Mr. Panelo said.
