President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has ordered his incoming Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II to spare no one in going after the culprits in Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) and other scandals in the Aquino administration , including President Benigno Aquino III himself.

In an interview with ANC’s Karen Davila, Aguirre said: “We are going to investigate the DAP. If the evidence warrants, we will be filing cases. Duterte told me that charges should be filed no matter who gets hurt. There should be no selective justice.”

The DAP was conceived as an economic stimulus fund using unused funds from agencies to address a problem created by the government in the first place: underspending. But instead of using the funds for projects that would ‎jumpstart the economy, the funds were used to bribe senators to impeach former Chief Justice Renato Corona, to sway lawmakers to vote for the administration’s pet bills, and reward loyal government officials.

Budget Secretary Butch Abad released P144.38 billion in DAP funds from 2011 to 2013. The Supreme Court found Abad’s pooling of savings and re-aligning these to other projects including to projects not approved in the budget as unconstitutional and ordered all agencies to return their unused DAP allocations.
