Nurse-reviewer apologizes for saying leak was nationwide

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/11 October) — “I am sorry if I hurt you,” Daryl Joel
“Butch” Dumdum, a Davao-based nurse and reviewer “in review centers around the
country,” said Tuesday evening as he explained to reporters here that his
pronouncement in a national newspaper about the alleged nationwide leak of
test questions in the June 2006 nursing licensure exam, was “only hypothetical.”

“I understand how they feel. I did not say they really cheated. I only said I
believed that there is a possibility of the existence of the leak here but not
the existence (itself),” he said.

Dumdum’s statements, published in the Philippine Daily Inquirer over the weekend angered nursing board passers and their parents in Davao City who maintained no such leakage benefited them.

The newspaper report quoted Dumdum as saying the leakage was everywhere and
that it benefited examinees in Davao and Tacloban.

Dumdum, 23, said the newspaper report did not misquote him but the crowd
“overreacted” to his pronouncement.

He clarified that he did not volunteer for an interview with the media. “They
called me for an interview,” he said. Read full story here.
