PACC launches ‘tokhang’ vs corruption

THE Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) launched “Tokhang Laban sa Korapsyon” as it intensified efforts to clean up the bureaucracy.

Newly-installed PACC Chairman Greco Belgica made the announcement on Wednesday during the Laging Handa public briefing.

According to Belgica, under the program, government officials will be encouraged to join the administration’s anti-corruption efforts.

They will also be asked to sign an anti-corruption manifesto.

“Ang layunin po nito ay hikayatin ang mga opisyal ng gobyerno para makiisa sa adbokasiya ng Pangulo na labanan ang korapsyon sa pamamagitan ng pakikipagtulungan sa PACC at ang pagtatalaga ng mga kawaning tututok sa mabilis na pagdedetermina at pag iimbestiga sa mga kaso ng katiwalian sa kanilang ahensiya (It’s purpose is to encourage officials of the government to join the advocacy of the President against corruption by working with the PACC and the appointment of officials who will help in investigating corruption cases within agencies),” Belgica said.

Belgica said all officials and employees of the Bureau of Customs signed the anti-corruption manifesto during the campaign’s launch on Tuesday, March 30.

Belgica said the signing of the manifesto is voluntary. However, he added that officials who will not sign the same will be investigated.

“The signing is voluntary pero (but) if they decide not to sign the manifesto eh red flag na ho kaagad sa amin sila (we see that as a red flag).”

He continued: “Titignan ko na agad ang kanilang opisina… Bakit ka umaayaw, is there anything you are hiding? (I will immediately look into their office… Why will you say no? is there anything you are hiding?)”
