Pres. Duterte to Investigate Pacquiao's P2.2 Billion Tax Evasion Case of Sen. Pacquiao

The tough-talking President of the Republic, President Rody Duterte reminded Sen. Manny Pacquiao that when you cheat government you are considered as a corrupt official as he plans to investigate the controversial P2.2 billion tax evasion case of the world boxing champion. 



According to the country's chief executive, he will try to get an update on the tax evasion complaint against Pacquiao, who claimed earlier that the Duterte administration was more corrupt than its predecessor. 


The President earlier stated that Pacquiao's statement was indeed unreasonable. 

"Yung inaatake ka, with the statement fo Pacquiao na triple, double ang corruption, umiinit ang ulo ko. I've been trying my best to curb corruption, hindi ko maalis yan overnight. But I have made some, little progress in terminating, dismissing individuals."

Pres. Duterte noted that he remember that the senator who claimed that his administration is more corrupt compared to the Aquino admin but Pacquiao has his own corruption case to worry about. 

The President was quoted as saying "Ang utang niya na hindi niya binayaran ang gobyerno of these fights, lahat na yan considered, since the beginning, maraming away yan at bilyon ang kinita niya."


"I’ll try to find out… not because gusto ko siyang habulin. Ayaw ko. But, sabi kasi niya korap kami. Ikaw, when you cheat the government, you are a corrupt official. It’s still with the court. I’ll check,” he added.

President Duterte earlier challenged Sen. Pacquiao who is now preparing for his fight, to name the alleged corrupt government agencies and provide evidence to substantiate his allegations.

The President said he would expose the boxer-turned-senator as “a liar” and campaign against him in next year’s polls should he fail to prove his corruption claims.

Sen. Pacquiao recently alleged that there is corruption in various Departments such as the Department of Health, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Energy and Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
