CG gets plaque from The SUN

14 April 2016

Consul General Bernardita S. Catalla received a plaque of appreciation from The SUN publisher Leo A. Deocadiz and editor Daisy CL Mandap on Jan. 8 for her wholehearted support of the newspaper’s 20th anniversary celebration last month.

ConGen Catalla had to cancel her attendance as guest speaker at the event held on Dec 20 in Chater Garden, Central at the last minute because of a death in her family. Deputy Consul General Christian de Jesus attended in her stead.
But before this, she directed all agencies of the Consulate to join the various groups that offered services to the Filipino community, in line with The SUN’s advocacy.
The Consulate was also instrumental in getting the HK Labour Department to open a booth that offered counseling and distributed leaflets about its services to foreign domestic workers.
Aside from supporting The SUN’s advocacy, the plaque also cited ConGen for supporting freedom of information, as when she readily responded to calls for a meeting on easing the seasonal queues for the overseas employment certificate. She also responded immediately to a request from The SUN for the release of an investigation she ordered into a misconduct complaint against former Labor Attache Manuel Roldan.
