The Senate will wrap up its investigation on anomalies within Philhealth as senators were already fed up with the “carousel of denials and lies.”
Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said the Senate committee of the whole is ready to draft a committee report and recommendations following the series of hearings on the state health insurer.
“We are done with the carousel of denials and lies! Enough is enough!” the Senate President said.
The Senate started its investigation following the resignation of an anti-fraud officer from Philhealth due to alleged corruption of high ranking officials.
Resigned Philhealth anti-fraud officer Thorrsson Montes Keith tagged Health Secretary Francisco Duque III as the “godfather” of the so called mafia within Philhealth during the hearing Tuesday (August 18).
Sotto urged Philhealth president and chief executive officer Ricardo Morales to appear before the Department of Justice “and later with the Ombudsman” as parallel investigations on the state health insurer continue.
