The statement came as the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and some nursing examinees scored the retake order with the former claiming that they were never consulted on the matter.
Rosero reiterated that the PRC is against a retake of the exams, saying it is not fair to punish innocent examinees who had no access to the leakage.
"Bakit paparusahan ang inosenteng examinees na walang access sa leakage? Ang dapat parusahan ay ang mga naglabas ng manuscript," Rosero said.
Labor Secretary Arturo Brion, meanwhile, said that since the president has already spoken, it should find a way to hasten the process, because the examinees and other nursing stakeholders will suffer.
Brion said waiting for the Court of Appeals (CA) to resolve the cases pending before it will lead to motions for reconsideration that may go all the way up to the Supreme Court virtually rendering the leakage issue unresolved for years.
