Philippines: PACC chief faces complaints over alleged lack of action against local officials linked to drugs, corruption

A Basilan doctor has filed complaints against Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission chief Greco Belgica — accusing the official of lack of action on the alleged involvement of two local officials in graft and corruption and illegal drug trade.

On Wednesday, Dr. Chao-Tiao Yumol filed complaints of grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty, conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service, violation of Section 4 of Republic Act No. 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, and violation of Section 3e of Republic Act No. 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act at the Office of the Ombudsman.

Based on his affidavit, Yumol reported the alleged illegal acts of Lamitan City Mayor Rosita Furigay and Vice Mayor Roderick Furigay to the PACC in 2019.

Yumol said Belgica found the complaint “so glaring” based on the documents presented.
