Pres. Duterte Threaten to Publish Details of DAP Controversy, Ombudsman Morales Left with Loopholes


The tough-talking President of the Republic of the Philippines, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte threatened to publish details of the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) controversy during the Aquino administration, which he claims Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales left with loopholes.



Pres. Rody Duterte was quoted as saying "One day I will show to you the DAP, ‘yung hindi niya ginalaw. I will publish it,” Duterte said. The statement of the President came after Ombudsman Morales has approved a resolution indicting former Pres. Noynoy Aquino for usurpation of legislative powers over the DAP controversy.

The Philippine President made the announcement during a speech at the Quarterly National Executive Officers and National Board Meeting of the Philippine Councilors League and 5th Local Legislative Education Program in Iloilo Convention Center.



Pres. Duterte described the alleged vast corruption in the institution by saying that "Corrupt rin ang mga Ombudsman. Titirahin nila, aalisin nila, kung may maiwan pa doon sa kickback mo tapos ang bibirahin ang municipal treasurer o kaya assessor kaya ang nagpupunta rito, walang pamasahe, wala lahat. Kaya ako naaawa, file nang file, karamihan naman bumabagsak ‘yung kaso, mapurnada talaga ‘yung tao.”

During the said speech of Pres. Rody Duterte in Iloilo City he also revealed that he already has a list of candidates for the Ombudsman post.

“After she makes an exit may bago tayo. I have a shortlist, men of ano talaga, unshakable. Pero in addition to that, I have to talk to a lot of people, maybe judges and lawyers and the entire gamut of the crowd sa gobyerno. I hope everything will ma-correct natin ‘to.”

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales will retire on July 26, 2018 after she was appointed by former Pres. Noynoy Aquino last July 25, 2011 during the President's SONA. Morales is considered by some netizens as one of Aquino's closest ally in the Judiciary because, former Pres. Noynoy Aquino did his oath-taking as President of the Republic, in the presence of former Supreme Court Associate Justice Morales who administered the oath-taking instead of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

The Judicial and Bar Council has started interviewing applicants for the post of the Ombudsman under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte.
