Lacson rejects Duterte’s ignorant tag, highlights anti-corruption drive in Customs, PhilHealth, BuCor
Senator Panfilo Lacson is not taking President Duterte’s recent comments against him sitting down.
Lacson said he has been fighting corruption in government, citing his efforts to uncover anomalies at the Bureau of Customs, PhilHealth, and Bureau of Corrections.
“Sabi ng ating Pangulo, ayaw niya ng CORRUPTION. Isiniwalat natin ang TARA sa Customs, ang GHOST PATIENTS sa PhilHealth at GCTA-for-Sale sa BuCor. May problema ba dun?” he tweeted.
Lacson also wondered “who is ignorant” after sharing a news article stating Duterte has no qualms about police earning cash from video-karera gambling operations.
“Duterte OK with cops accepting ‘gifts’ out of gratitude, earning extra cash from video-karera” – Is this not graft Mr President? Pray tell, who is ignorant?” he said in another post on Twitter.
Duterte recently unleashed tirade against Lacson, saying he was trying to be crusader but was ignorant of the law since he was not a lawyer. The President made the comment after former police chief disgreed with his view about policemen accepting gifts.
