For showing honesty by returning a wallet containing P33,900 which he found in his work area, the City Government of Cagayan de Oro has commended Emelio Bernaldez, a resident of Zone 4 Brgy Bayabas, this city and working as a laborer of Ms. Irene Floro at Westbound Fish Landing Area in Barangay Bulua.
The Certificate of Commendation signed by Mayor Oscar S. Moreno, Majority Floor Leader Ian Mark Q. Nacaya and EWTPM officer-in-charge Jocelyn Q. Peńalosa, was given today to Bernaldez by City Information Officer Maricel Rivera and Peńalosa for his act of honesty.
It can be recalled that last December 13, Bernaldez found the said wallet at his work site and turned it over to police assigned at Westbound Terminal. The wallet contained folded cash amounting to P33,900.
Fortunately, the wallet also had an identification card and the cash was also turned over to the rightful owner.
