G.R. No 94070 April 10, 1992

II. Specification of the Case
FACTS. Santos was an ambassadress sent to Geneva for a mission. On her trip, she bought a discounted ticket which provided that she could bring someone with her so she brought with her adopted daughter. Some of her co-workers complained because they thought that Santos used government fund to finance her daughter’s fare. It was later found out that the cost of the said ticket is actually 50% less than the amount that was given to Santos to be used for her expenses for the trip. Nevertheless, because of her refusal to appear before the disciplinary board, she was found guilty of misconduct. Upon her appeal to the Office of the President and after review, Cory issued AO 122 which declared Santos guilty of dishonesty. She was then removed from her post and was replaced.

ISSUE. Whether or not Santos was rightfully removed from her post.

HELD. Evidence showed that Santos is not guilty of misconduct or dishonesty. In fact what she did was beneficial to the government for she helped save and lessen the expenses. However, the SC does not have the power to reverse the recall done to Santos. She cannot be reinstated by the SC to her position for the removal power of the president is solely her prerogative.

Thus, the assignment to and recall from posts of ambassadors are prerogatives of the President, for her to exercise as the exigencies of the foreign
