Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said on Wednesday (Aug. 26) he welcomes the resignation of Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) Senior Vice President Rodolfo del Rosario.
“Del rosario’s resignation, if true, would probably make the investigation being conducted by task force PhilHealth a little easier,” he said.
Guevarra is the convenor of Task Force PhilHealth which is investigating corrupt activities at the government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC).
“The task force has no authority to recommend specific replacements for resigned or dismissed PhilHealth officials,” he said.
“Instead, the task force has recommended to the President that the GCG (Governance Commission for GOCC), which is under the OP (Office of the President), be directed to study the possible reorganization of PhilHealth and the creation of an interim management committee,” he added.
