How much money does President Duterte have?
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte has expressed willingness to disclose his bank records, saying that his lifetime savings “could not be more than 37 million.
Duterte issued the remark during the campaign sortie of the Partido Demoktratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan in Cagayan de Oro late Sunday.
“I am willing to have it checked now if there’s a law that states that we have to do it first,” the President said.
“Just don’t trick me to open that. As I have said, it could not be more than 37 million in lifetime savings including my inheritance from my parents. That’s all that I have up until now,” he added.
Duterte and his family have been accused of hidden wealth.
In 2017, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV alleged that the chief executive was hiding P211 million in several local banks.
