President Rodrigo Duterte will be offering Php 30,000 to those who can provide information regarding corrupt officials pocketing COVID-19 funds or committing irregularities in the government’s distribution of assistance. It can be recalled that the president has named one official from Agustin, Hagonoy, Bulacan as one of the corrupt officials.
“‘Yung mga mayors naman, kindly look into the people that you have commissioned to do the distribution sa pera. Kagaya nitong [Flores]. P***** i** nagkuha ka pa ng television. Mahirap na nga (beneficiaries), ikaw may trabaho ka na, kagawad ka, p***** i**, kukunin mo pa ‘yung pera ng mahirap,” states President Rodrigo Duterte, in an article published by GMA News Online.
According to Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, the government will have zero tolerance on corrupt officials. Roque added that corrupt officials involved in SAP funds may call the 8888 hotline.
“Sa kagustuhan ng ating pangulo na matigil ang pangungurakot sa SAP (Social Amelioration Program) at iba pang ayuda ng pamahalaan, na ginawa ni kagawad Danilo Flores ng Hagonoy Bulacan, siya po ay magbibigay pabuya ng P30,000 sa lahat ng magrereport ng local officials na kumakana o kinukurakot ang mga ayuda para sa mahihirap,” states Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque.
