Though President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has already read the preliminary reports of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) on two Cabinet members allegedly accused of committing graft, it is still not certain if these two accused are “guilty.”
Duterte admitted that he read a summary of the reports but only on a cursory level. He has given the PACC more time to accurately get information on the accusations “in the interest of fairness.”
When asked who these cabinet members are, Duterte did not identify them, asking the public to just wait for the final report.
Duterte vowed he will not hesitate to fire any erring official.
Several days back, charged of corruption has been heaped on Labor secretary Silvestre Bello III after being charged with his excessive trips abroad and his alleged seditious acts when he met CPP-NPA leaded Jose Maria Sison without the expressed approval of President Duterte.
Ado Paglinawan, a public advocate just filed graft charges against Bello before the Office of the Ombudsman and an administrative case at the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC).
