2 Cabinet execs under probe over corruption – Belgica
By Prince Golez
Two Cabinet members are being investigated for alleged corruption, according to Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica.
“Meron pang Cabinet secretary. I think dalawa sila eh. Merong complaint na finile, so duty bound kami to investigate. Secretaries. Dalawa. Cabinet rank,” said Belgica in a press conference in Malacañang Wednesday.
He, however, refused to divulge the names of the high-ranking officials.
“Ang investigation namin cannot be revealed to the public until it has been submitted to the President. The President decides on it, then, it can be open to the public,” said Belgica.
“Ang investigation kasi does not mean they are already guilty so it is unfair to mention them and make them appear na corrupt,” he added.
The commissioner said they commenced investigation in February this year.
