Embattled Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno found another ally defending him from resignation calls over the proposed 2018 national budget controversy.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. has attested to Diokno’s integrity, saying he was never involved in any scandal.

“Ben Diokno has served several administrations since Cory and never a whiff of scandal. No doubt he is tight with public funds but that is why he is picked by presidents and picked on by crooks he frustrates,” he tweeted.
