The President affirmed Assignment Order No. 58/88 dated April 27, 1988 of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs recalling the petitioner to the home office from her post as permanent representative to the Philippine Mission to the United Nations and other International Organizations (MISUNPHIL, for short) in Geneva, Switzerland (pp. 84-99, Rollo).

Petitioner Rosalinda de Perio-Santos, a career service officer with the rank of Chief of Mission II and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, was appointed on July 24, 1986, by her Excellency, President Corazon C. Aguino, to the position of Permanent Representative of the Philippines to the Philippine Mission to the United Nations and other International Organizations with station in Geneva, Switzerland (Annexes A and B, pp. 33-34,Rollo).

On April 6, 1987, petitioner sought a leave of absence from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to spend the Easter Holidays in New York, U.S.A., with her mother, brothers and sisters at no expense to the Government (p. 84, Rollo). She bought two (2) non-transferable, non-refundable discounted tickets costing SFr. 1,597 for herself and her adopted daughter Pia.
