Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio has been given a brief refresher about the laws requiring integrity for public officials.

“Honesty is ALREADY a requirement for public officials under existing laws,” former Akbayan Rep. Barry Gutierrez tweeted.

“EO 292, s32: public officers must serve the people with the utmost INTEGRITY; RA 6713, s4a: government powers must be used HONESTLY; RPC, a171: punishes making UNTRUTHFUL statements in a public document,” added Gutierrez, also spokesman of Vice President Leni Robredo.

Mayor Sara earlier suggested to Senator Leila de Lima to craft a law adding honesty as a requirement for candidates seeking public posts. The mayor previously said honesty should not be an election issue for
senatorial candidates since everyone lies anyway.
