The task force led by the Department of Justice (DOJ) that will investigate anomalies in government also intends to cultivate anti-corruption values among Filipinos, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said on Wednesday (Oct. 28).
“Isa sa objectives ng aming task force ay hindi lamang para ma-imbestigahan at makasuhan yung mga taong involved sa mga ganitong activities,” he said during an interview over DZBB.
“Isa pa sa aming primary objectives ay yung prevention ng corruption,” he revealed.
The secretary said part of this campaign is “values formation” among Filipinos.
“Kasi kailangan din natin i-educate yung mga tao,” he explained.
“Kailangan iakita natin sa kanila na hindi tama yang ganyang mga corrupt activities dahil tayo nawawalan ng public funds na dapat na magamit sa mabuting kapakanan ng bayan,” he added.
Guevarra said he plans to tap in the campaign the public sector as well as media.
