DOJ Probes Dilawan (LP) Foreign & Local Bank Accounts


Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre of the Deprtment of Justice (DOJ) is now investigating some controversial local and international bank accounts owned by members of the Liberal Party (LP) or more popularly known as the Dilawan.



The DOJ declined to disclose the names of those under investigation but said that "many [are] in the opposition." "We have dug these bank accounts of opposition personalities, mostly 'dilaw'," Sec. Aguirre told reporters on Tuesday.

The term "dilawan" or "yellow" refers to members, allies and supporters of the once powerful Liberal Party, which has used the color yellow in its election campaigns since the administration of late Pres. Cory Aquino, the mother of former President Benigno S. Aquino III.

Sec. Aguirre noted that the bank accounts probe of the Dilawan covers banks in Switzerland, Malaysia, and Austrlia. The DOJ Chief stated also the in due time, the agency will release more information about the issue.

The Liberal Party also released an official statement regarding the controversial probe of the DOJ on alleged local and international bank accounts of its party-members. LP blasted the investigation, calling the probe a "threat of persecution" and an attempt to divert public attention from issues hounding the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte.

The statement about "threat of persecution" was never mentioned by LP during the time when Pres. Aquino and his allies conducted an investigation leading to the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona but right now under the Duterte admin, once LP members will be put under investigation, there's always a statement of threat from the Dilawan party.
