    No. The defaulting officer in all cases such as receiving applications, failing to furnish information, denying information, giving incorrect, incomplete and misleading information, destroying information or obstructing the information to be furnished shall be the Public Information Officer only for purpose of awarding any penalty. No other official is responsible for such action.
