Ping cheers on PhilHealth whistleblowers
While he is angry over the continued corruption at the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth), Sen. Panfilo Lacson is glad there are “decent” people there who disclose information about such shenanigans.
Lacson said that had these decent people not disclosed the details of such irregularities, Filipinos would have been robbed blind.
“We’re so happy there are decent people in Philhealth giving us all this info. Kung hindi, kawawa na si Pilipino,” he said at the hearing of the Senate Committee of the Whole.
Lacson also noted that in the case of those already inside PhilHealth, there will come a time they can no longer stand the irregularities.
“When it becomes habitual the time will come some people will reach their limit. May hangganan ang kayang sikmurahin ng corruption,” he said.
