MANILA, Philippines — President Marcos has appointed singer and composer Anthony Castelo as vice chairman and chief operating officer of the Bataan Shipyard and Engineering Co. Inc. (BASECO), one of the companies sequestered by the government after the 1986 people power revolution.

Castelo, whose appointment was announced by the Presidential Communications Office (PCO) yesterday, occupied the same posts during the time of former president Rodrigo Duterte.

BASECO is under the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG), which was formed by the late president Corazon Aquino.

PCO also announced the appointment of Raymond Anthony Dilag as PCGG commissioner.

Under Executive Order No. 1 signed by Aquino on Feb. 28, 1986, the PCGG shall assist the president in the “recovery of all ill-gotten wealth accumulated by former president Ferdinand E. Marcos, his immediate family, relatives, subordinates and close associates, whether located in the Philippines or abroad.”

Other new appointees include Kaye Tinga (Cultural Center of the Philippines president and chief executive officer of the board of trustees); Francisco Rivera (chairman of the Games and Amusements Board); Rogelio Quevedo (commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission); Wilson Tecson (member of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office board of directors); Carlene Collado (agriculture director IV); Hamidah Guro (agrarian reform director III); Daisy Digamon, Ricardo Garcia and Rolando Liberario Jr. (provincial agrarian reform program officers II); Reymond Yu (provincial agrarian reform program officer I); Rosalie Abesamis, Trisha Baraan, Lenin Bernales, Mary Joy de Leon, Maria Gayomali and Gemma Ilagan (budget directors IV); Francis Bautista, Crystine Cuartero, Philip David, Olivia Regner and Benjieleth Zuniga (budget directors III).
