JUST IN: Duterte Gagawa ng Anti Corruption Commission


President Rodrigo Duterte has created a presidential commission against graft and corruption.

Duterte on October 4 signed Executive Order No. 43, creating the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission.

“There is a need to create a separate commission under the Office of the President solely dedicated to providing assistance to the President in the investigation and hearing of administrative cases and complaints, and in the conduct of lifestyle checks and/or fact-finding inquiries concerning presidential appointees and other public officers allegedly involved in graft and corrupt practices, or have committed other higher crimes and/or violations of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees,” the EO read.

The EO said the commission would have "power, on a complaint, or motu proprio, and concurrently with the Office of the Ombudsman to hear, investigate, receive, gather, and evaluate evidence, intelligence reports, and information in administrative cases against all presidential appointees." — MDM, GMA News
