Highest paid Cabinet member gave pay away

He may have been the highest paid in the Aquino Cabinet last year, but Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario just gave it all away, according to diplomatic officers.

In December last year, Del Rosario, who also happens to be the richest Cabinet member, played Santa Claus and donated his 2011 salary for “equal distribution” to the more than 1,000 officials and personnel of the Department of Foreign Affairs, at least those based in the country at the time.

Department undersecretaries down to the lowest employee—in the home office and regional offices around the country each received a P420 bonus last year from his salary, according to Foreign Undersecretary Rafael Seguis.

“In December 2011, the secretary returned to the DFA cashier his total salary from March to December 2011 for equal distribution to all DFA personnel,” Seguis said.

“Although the amount that each received was not much, everyone was deeply grateful to the secretary for his generosity,” Seguis added, noting that the extra cash came at a time the staple food allowance of home office personnel was still under consideration.

Another DFA official said Del Rosario also used his own money to donate prizes for the department’s Christmas parties last year.

Seguis also clarified that the P2-million “discretionary and extraordinary and miscellaneous funds” that Del Rosario received for 2011 should not be considered part of his take-home pay because they are “used for certain official purposes and expenditures of public character.”

He said the funds were used for “necessary intelligence operations at the DFA…connected with powers and functions of the government.”

    YAN ang tunay na PUBLIC SERVANT.  Hindi dahil sa namigay siya ng kanyang sweldo, kundi hindi siya humanay sa linya ng mga MMM.  I think he got a lot from his PLDT investments where he has been accumulating when PLDT was on its way to the heavens.

      This man, Honorable Albert del Rosario who is a Cabinet Secretary of P-Noy in the Foreign Affairs really has a big heart and his kind is hard to find nowadays. I don’t think he is doing this because he got lots of money in the bank. He is an exception to the majority of the rich people who finds it hard to give something to the cause of charity. It is really “from the bottom of his heart” that we see him freely giving away large sums of money to the entire work force of the Foreign Affairs in December 2011. This is the first time I’ve heard a high government official doing something like this donating his entire salary from March to December 2011 to the entire workforce entitling P420.00 to each one to more than 1000 personnel. He is a complete opposite to some government officials taking advantage of their high position to make themselves get richer through questionable means. As a fitting tribute to this man with his exemplary kindness I just hope and pray that God in His infinite goodness will shower him with all the blessings from heaven which he rightfully deserved.

        But more than anything else, SANA pagmulan ito ng HIYA….ng MALAKING HIYA sa mga naninilbihan sa gobierno…hindi sa dapat na ipamigay ang pinaghirapang kita sa pagtratrabaho, KUNDI ang HINDI pagsasamantala sa pwestong ipinagkaloob ng bayan bilang pagtitiwala sa kanyang kapwa at pagsisilbi ng matapat tungo sa tagumpay ng lahat ng taong-bayan.  Napakaganda ng pinakitang ugali ni Albert del Rosario sa hangad niyang maipamahagi ang kanyang pinaghirapang kita o sweldo upang madama ng lahat sa kanyang deparmento na ang lahat ng kanyang hirap at pagod sa pagpapatakbo ng opisina nila ay para sa lahat at isa’t isa.  Malaking halaga din naman ang kanyang pinamudmud sa lahat ng kawani ng FA, ngunit HIGIT NA MAHALAGA ang napapaloob sa ginawa nyang yon.  Isang pambihirang katangian ng public servant yan…at tulad ng katangiang namalas at namasdan kay Jesse Robredo….itong si Albert del Rosario ay natitiyak kong mahahanay din sa kabayanihang uri nito.

        Mabuhay ka AdelRosario!

    truly a man of generous heart.  in fact, he shelled out dollars from his pocket to give to the Filipino nurses who were rescued from Misurata during the war here in Libya. I was a witness to this good Samaritan. This happened in Radison Blu Hotel in Tripoli. I even personally approached the good Secretary if I could send money to my family through him because there was no Western Unions, bank transfers at all and Libya was sanctioned by the UN then. So, he asked his personal assistant, Fajie Fajardo, to accept the money. I felt blessed and lucky that, at last, that point in time, where NATO bombs had already become a music and everyday life to everyone here in Libya (foreigners like us, included), my family would already be assured of their allowance. Kudos to Secretary Albert del Rosario and his assistant, Kuya Fajie. Thanks a lot to you!!!

      • jian_sadako

        It’s against the law not to give a standard salary for a person working. I think it is not for the employer not to give the salary because whether private or government, they have to pay salary to their working employee regardless if the employee is rich or not.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KXX7P2RGVXPCY3YEGMECORWDFY Sherwin


        As the article goes, the DFA secretary being a rich guy gave away all his salaries to all his subordinates.  Puro ka reklamo, nagtratrabaho rin naman sila kahit nasa government, of course they should be paid.

        Now, if your ire is fueled by those corrupt government officials who steal money from our pockets thru our taxes, well that’s a different story, galit din ako sa kanila.

    What is the hullaballoo about the highest paid government officiall?  Is the government following the salary scale or favoritism scale.?  It is hard to accept that these government officials are receiving high salaries and incentives when they are filthy rich already while most of our countrymen are still mired in poverty.  This christmas many will be celebrating noche buena with empty stomachs or only bagoong and toyo on their tables

  • PH2011

    Don’t be envious of the salary of High Government Officials, all of them
    have enormous government responsibilities. The amount received is still low, it’s
    nothing compared to other countries. In fact, some Filipinos working in Private
    , OFW’s, Migrant workers  earned more
    than that amount they received.

    One of the best recommendation to congress is to upgrade MORE  the salary of ALL government officials ( & employees ) to
    maximum level the government can afford. Government officials are more
    susceptible to corruption if they have low income. If Malacanang is clean and
    the Secretaries and Under/Asst -secretaries are clean…believe me,  susunod mga yan sa ibaba.  Pero pag corrupt ang nasa taas, there’s no
    way we can eliminate the corruption in this country. Mahihirapan mag corrupt
    ang mga rank-in-file government employees 
    kung malinis ang namamahala sa taas. That’s basic… common sense.

    Do a LEE KUAN YEW strategy .

    That was very effective in our neighboring AAA- country ( Singapore ).

    For a change, why not try it in our country.

    still some people here thinks he’s up to something without providing any proof… 


    the guy did something no other servant has done & crabs still hates him…  give credit where credit is due…

    oh well, what do you expect???  they are a bunch of miserable people… CRABS just hates, period…

    Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario is one less greedy officials in the Aquino government. He should be emulated by every Aquino Cabinet member. His gesture is worthy of admiration!

    Ang hitsura lang itong si Rosario ay talagang swapang ito. He is not giving , he is asking big in return. Tandaan nyo mga kayumangmang. The man is a very shrewd businessman. Theres a lot of business deals in being a Sec OF Foreign Affairs, tell  ya.Those salary of his is nothing compared to the deals behind closed door s he is getting . He wanted the job and to make sure he gets the support of the employees, magpadulas muna sya. I tell ya, ang daming pera yan lalo na sa mga foreign investors.  He is trying to stop Trillanes from getting the next in line  , the reason nagpasipsip sya sa mga employees.

    Remember, “pakitang tao” applies only if the person holds a press conference to tell the ‘good’ he has done.

    In this story, Del Rosario held no such blatant thing.  So the gesture is ok.

  • ruben_bush

    How about giving his salary to the domestic workers of those DFA diplomats abroad who only bring embarassment to our country.
    Secretary del Rosario should be informed that a lot of his diplomats are the one’s violating the rights of their fellow Filipinos by refusing to pay the legal minimum wage of their own household staff and domestic workers.  It is a big shame that a lot of our diplomats in Europe, US, Canada, and other regions have been brought to court for exploiting their own people.  How can we protect the rights and welfare of our OFW’s when our own people who are supposed to protect them are the ones exploiting them???  Look at the trafficking case of former Ambassador Lauro Baja in the US who was exploited in exchange for bringing her to the US, the case of former WTO ambassador Manuel Teehankee in Switzerland who did not pay his domestic worker, and lately the case of Ambassador Shulan Primavera in Kuwait who not only refused to pay just wages, but worst even sexually molested and tried to rape his domestic worker.

        news: 10/14/12 :CoA asked to bare details of summary audit for 2011
        Briones on radio said the Audit Performance Summary Report submitted to Aquino and Congress last Sept. 27 was also vague on what years it covered.“The period it covers is unclear. What is clear is that there are findings covering both the administrations of former President Arroyo and also that of Aquino,” she said

        news: Long list of anomalies during year 1 of Aquino
        Sunday, 07 October 2012 00:00

        CCT’S MISSING P3.77B AMONG P102B IN PECUNIARY LOSSES — COAContrary to President Aquino’s straight path doctrine, his administration was found to have mostly pursued irregular practices, including his much-vaunted conditional cash transfer (CCT) program that based on the a Commission on Audit (CoA) report showed P3.77 billion disbursements for the program last year which were unaccounted for.
        Other mulitbillion-peso anomalies were reported in the Bureau of Customs where the P26 billion in Customs duty and tax drawbacks given were found illegal, and the Department of Budget and Management’s (DBM) transfer or release to local governments of P2.6 billion from the special account in the general funds (SAGF) were found irregular, the CoA audit performance summary report last year showed.
        The report was submitted to President Aquino and the heads of both chambers of Congress last Sept. 27.

        CoA showed in the report P102 billion in “pecuniary” loss to the government last year as a result of “violations of law, rules and regulations.”
        The CoA said the findings for 2011, covering the first year of President Aquino’s term, mostly involved “unauthorized/irregular/unnecessary expenses, unliquidated cash advances, violations of the Procurement Act, underassessment/undercollection, unutilized/ineffective projects, and lack of appropriation.”
        The CoA also cited the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), which regulates road tolls, for P2.8 billion in understatement of its liabilities, the Philippine Air Force which it said underutilizaed its budget for P1.6 billion, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for releasing P1.043 billion for unprogrammed projects or activities, and the Department of Transportation and Communications (DoTC) for a accounts receivable balance bloated by P797 million representing disputed debts and delayed or suspended projects worth P1.2 billion.
        Likewise mentioned in the report was the National Labor Relations Commission’s (NLRC) national capital region office where judgment awards of decided cases and cash bonds on appealed cases worth P641 million since 2004 remained unremitted to the Bureau of Treasury.
        The CoA also said the Philippine Coast Guard recorded the receipt of Marine Environment and Protection Equipment and Supplies from the DoTC worth P319 million were without complete documentation.
        Some P169.4 million rentals for the University of the Philippines-Ayala Techno Hub property could not be verified due to lack of supporting documents.
        Also cited were mission inflatable boats in the Office of the Civil Defense and failure of the Department of Energy to efficiently distribute compact fluorescent lamps which were acquired through a P172 million contract………………………HUWAD na DAAN……………………………pinocchio —————>

        2009 gma deficit is a WORLWIDE phenomenon… the GLOBAL CRISIS…in fact GMA was credited by world leaders for ECONOMiC GENIUS…the philppines only suffered 3.8% deficit while the rest of the WORLD CRUMBLES…these COUNTRIES suffered HUGE deficits US 10.4%, UK 11%, SPAIN 8.6%, GREECE 15.8%, JAPAN 7.6% , MALDIVES 21.6% etc…swerte ng RPke gma …papano kaya kong si Pnoy na President non 2009?

        BENHAM RISE new Philippine territory 250 km wide –GMA LEGACYDespite its proximity to the archipelago, the plateau was previously not included in the territory of the Philippine Islands. On 8 April 2009 ( GMA govt. filed the claim to UN now we owned it.. eventually our history & after the political vendettas ….legislature might rename the benham rise to GMA rise to give honor to its finder/claimant .. ), The Philippines may soon be able to provide its own energy through Benham Rise, an underwater ridge to the east of Luzon which is believed to have mineral and gas deposits. The Philippines claim over Benham Rise is “very relevant” because scientific surveys indicate minerals and natural gas in the area. Solidified methane was found during mapping activities and the “probability is very high” there are oil deposits. There may be more natural gas than oil, and is considered better because it is cleaner. Benham Rise, which is bigger than Luzon, Samar, and Leyte combined, is being claimed solely by the Philippines . Si GMA lang ang PRESIDENTENG nakapag-DAGDAG ng teritoryo sa pilipinas ..itong benham rise nato ang magpapayaman sa pilipinas pag dating ng araw…GMA is fluent in English, Tagalog, Spanish and several other Philippine languages, most importantly, Kapampangan, Ilokano, and Cebuano. a polyglot like rizal..Arroyo, who earned a master’s degree and doctorate in economics, made the Philippine economy the focus of her presidency. Annual economic growth in the Philippines averaged 4.5% during the Arroyo administration, EXPANDING ECONOMY EVERY QUARTER of her presidency DESPITE GLOBAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE in 2008 & 2009… This is higher than in the administrations of her three immediate predecessors, Corazon Aquino (3.8%), Fidel Ramos (3.7%), and Joseph Estrada (3.7%).[15] The Philippine economy grew at its fastest pace in three decades in 2007, with real GDP growth exceeding 7%.The economy was one of the few to avoid contraction during the 2008 global financial crisis, faring better than its regional peers due to minimal exposure to troubled international securities, lower dependence on exports, relatively resilient domestic consumption, large remittances from four-to five-million overseas Filipino workers, and a growing business process outsourcing industry. Arroyo’s handling of the economy has earned praise from former US President Bill Clinton, who cited her “tough decisions” that put the Philippine economy back in shape.. Her administration originally set a target to balance the national budget by 2010, . The tax measure boosted confidence in the government’s fiscal capacity and helped to strengthen the Philippine peso, making it East Asia’s best performing currency in 2005–06.The peso strengthened by nearly 20% in 2007, making it by far Asia’s best performing currency ..also, she “stepped down” from the presidency in June 2010, economic growth rate was at 7.9 percent, the highest in almost 10 years and was achieved amid spiral oil and food prices.“Our country has just weather with flying colors the worst planet wide economic downturn since the Great Depression of 1930. As two-thirds of the world’s economies contracted, we were one of the few that managed positive growth,” she said.In contrast, the economy has faltered and growth rate narrowed to 3.7 percent in 2011,

At yung budget na iyon, built in na yung deficit. Galing ni PNoy, napalagpas niya ang last 6 months ng 2010 with 20% of the budget remaining

      • Albert Einstien

        The occult (from the Latin word occultus ‘clandestine, hidden, secret’) is “knowledge of the hidden.

        In common English usage, occult refers to “knowledge of the paranormal”, as opposed to “knowledge of the measurable”, usually referred to as science. The term is sometimes popularly taken to mean “knowledge meant only for certain people” or “knowledge that must be kept hidden”, but for most practicing occultists it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences.

    When you hear and read stories like this, its no wonder why the Philippines in still in poverty. Those in power are rich and those they have power over are poor. Its a big and shocking drop-off. All the elected government officials including the President are filthy rich while all the rest of us are fighting to be above party and many are losing this fight.

       Because they lives on their salaries only.
      Nabubuhay lang sila sa sueldo nila  because they are not rich and have no business, unlike Del Rosario.

  • agaylaya

    Who ever trumpeted this magnanimous act is not a friend of Del Rosario’s.


    This is his money for crying out loud. He has the right to give away his salary to whoever he wants to. Maybe he was just trying to boost the morale of the employees, which is good for him by all means. Pinaghirapan niya ‘to, what the f*ck does it have to do with poor people. Those “deserving” people whom you are referring to must refrain themselves from multiplying like cockroaches and instead work hard for their future, ensure the kids finish school, stop spending on things they can’t actually afford to have (cellphone/load). Most of all, they should have pity on themselves. Hindi yung puro asa sa limos. Pati tuloy ako nalayo na sa issue.

    Basta bigay bigay parang ginawang pamilya nya ang DFA, that means he is up to something . He is using the age old estilong padulas , konting investment s in human relations goes a long way. When time comes he will reap billions of pesos in illgotten wealth behind the door deals. Tandaan nyo mga kayumangmangs. He has no obligation to give but he is giving. Isa lang ang gusto nya, meyron syang ulterior motive kunsabo sa mga assistant nya . Switik. Mag ingat kayo sa mga ganon. Pang padulas , meyrong kapalit yan.

    A high profile job as a diplomat opens a lot of doors and the prestige that goes with it is priceless..the DFA Secretary is a multimillionaire and perhaps it would have been better if his generosity was kept private in this way some of us will not make such a big fuss about it.

        There’s no way a cretin can teach itself (yep, I said “itself”), so such words are definitely learned from an ill-mannered home. It’s usually that way. =)

        You can call me the nastiest words your family members taught you, kid. But it doesn’t bother me at all. And oh, for your pea-sized brain’s sake, I’m using the ORIGINAL Tagalog orthography (called Abecedario). But of course, this is something that you do not know because you’re focused too much on US cuss words. So comical, considering that, out of cowardice, you hide by the nickname “magsasakasanayon”.

        Grab more of that cleenex to wipe off your tears. Coz you know that I own you every time I reply to your childish inanities. Let’s hear some more from your family vocabulary. =)

    More than the government official who gives away or donates his lawful salary somewhere, I’d like to see the government official whose lawful salary does matter to him.  This means he has no other source of income, lawful or otherwise. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

      That’s a good sign indeed for career persons in government.  However, those who are already successful in private practice and business, is qualified, is on legacy mode and would want to spend their remaining years in service to the country should be welcomed.  Remember Chino Roces?  He joined rallies against Marcos when he was already successful in life and already a grandfather, and he made a hell of a difference.  I also read somewhere that a billion pesos or two from Gokongwei has been a lot of help on charities too.  So instead of finding faults on a good deed, can we Filipnos just appreciate it? I remember people even finding fault on an unnamed woman giving her jacket to a little girl under the rain – sad how jaded people could become.  

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EXFI4EUGM23PQ4FMQKLVH36OXI Jose

      Disagree, personally.

      In general, I’d like to have the very best in charge of the country, and you generally figure those out by looking at who has been successful in their respective fields.

      The successful generally make a good amount of money, so getting those without cash would be a terrible idea imo.

    Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario, I salute you.

    We’re proud of you. Sana ay tularan ka ng mga congressmen at party list

    Dahil ang pork barrel na ‘yan ay pera naman talaga ng taong bayan.
