Kilusang Pagbabago chair Monalie Dizon bravely explains up close and personal the merits of the graft and usurpation of authority charges she filed at the Office of the Ombudsman against Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica whom she confronted right inside the office of the latter Wednesday, or just a day after filing the graft complaint.
On her complaint, Dizon accuses Belgica of leading an unlawful raid against two Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) employees which runs counter to PACC’s mandate as they were below Salary Grade 26. “All his acts are without the authority of the Commission. Further, the subject of the entrapment are two officials of the BIR whose positions are below grade 26, thus are not within the jurisdiction of PACC as provided under Section 5 (a), hence Belgica’s act was contrary to law,” Dizon stated on her nine-page affidavit. Dizon also says Belgica “went to the raid armed with a gun, allegedly in a bid to gain popularity to back his political ambitions.” (BENJIE CUARESMA/IAMIGO/CNS)
