All about that accident

THIS is to clarify the news item on my alleged negligence which resulted in the total wreckage of a Toyota Fortuner in 2015 while I was still a commissioner of the Insurance Commission (IC).

I have acknowledged full responsibility over the payment of P83,199.86 to be deducted from the proceeds of my last pay in IC as has been arranged with Deputy Insurance Commissioner Dorothy Calimag.

On a personal note, I would have to share with you that the accident happened during my birthday in my desire to celebrate it with students of Paracle Elementary School in Camarines Norte through a 3-day feeding program, distribution of school paraphernalia to students and used laptops to senior citizens’ groups. After recovery from my minor injuries, three days after the accident, I proceeded with the activity. 

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify this matter. – EMMANUEL F. DOOC, President and Chief Executive Officer, SSS
