PACC's COVID-19 motto: ‘Lahat ng tutulong, ikukulong’ -Lacson

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson has his own opinion when the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Manuelito Luna urged the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to investigate Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo’s action competing with national government on COVID-19 response.

In his tweet he said “PACC’s COVID-19 Motto: “LAHAT NG TUTULONG, IKUKULONG”

However the it was only the opinion of one commissioner and not that of the whole office as clarified by PACC Commissioner Greco Belgica, as he explains that it was the personal opinion of Luna.

“PACC is not asking anyone to investigate VP Leni Robredo. On the other hand, we are thankful to everyone who are helping the front liners and the needy including the VP,” Belgica said in a statement.
“It was a personal opinion and request made by one of the Commissioners of PACC that does not reflect the sentiments of the Commission,” he added
Commissioner Manuelito Luna earlier said “The National Bureau of Investigation should investigate Vice-President Leni Robredo for illegal solicitations, actions that compete with, or calculated to undermine, national government efforts in this time of public health emergency or national calamities, such as OVP’s free shuttle service and dormitories for health workers, and PPEs for health workers.”

“Being a part of the national government, Robredo is barred from competing with the DOH (Department of Health), DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) and OCD (Office of Civil Defense/NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), or undermining their efforts, and from soliciting donations, in cash or in kind, from the taxpaying public, especially since funds have already been appropriated or set aside for relief  assistance, disaster mitigation, rehabilitation,” Luna added.
Luna is of the opinion that the actions Robredo may be violating “NDRRMC [National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council] Law and its [Implementing] Rules and Regulations, the Solicitation Permit Law and Related Issuances, the measures and protocols of the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emergent Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to arrest the spread of SARS-CoV-2, and for accounting.”
