The task force led by the Department of Justice will also include in its investigation corrupt activities involving amounts below P1 billion, assured Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra.
“The P1-billion threshold is just a guideline in our setting of priorities,” Guevarra said.
“We will also investigate complaints about corrupt practices involving smaller amounts of money but with high impact on the delivery of government service to the people,” he said.
The P1-billion threshold was reached during Guevarra’s meeting with members of the task force last Friday.
“Our Secretariat/Operations Center, which we are presently organizing, will soon embark on identifying these corrupt transactions and practices based on available materials and information to be drawn from the public,” Guevarra said.
