“While investigations are still being conducted, we shall refrain, to the extent possible, from publicly identifying the personalities who may be involved, as a matter of fairness,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said.

“Upon completion of the investigation and filing of the complaint with the Office of the Ombudsman, the respondents may be named, either by the Task Force Against Corruption or by the OMB, subject to their right to be heard,” Guevarra said.

The Justice Secretary assured that no one will be exempted from the corruption investigation that the TFAC will conduct.

“The task force will investigate the acts of corruption complained of, regardless of who may be involved,” Guevarra said.

Meanwhile, the Justice Secretary is set to meet next week with members of the TFAC to determine which of the complaints and reports it received will be investigated.

“All complaints so far received by the Task Force Against Corruption Secretariat are now being screened and evaluated,” the Justice Secretary said.

“I will call a meeting of the main task force next week to identify which of these complaints will be the subject of special investigating teams,” he disclosed.
