MALACAÑANG ON Tuesday advised Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office Board Director Sandra M. Cam to pursue her anti-corruption advocacy “outside the government” if she “cannot stomach” what she sees in her agency. “She can always resign and pursue her advocacy outside the government. Our suggestion is if she feels that she cannot stomach whatever she is confronted with inside the agency in which she works, then she can always resign and pursue her advocacy outside the government,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador S. Panelo said in a press briefing. “The moment she files complaints regarding her allegations, the President will order a full-blown investigation,” he added. In a statement on May 17, Mr. Panelo said Ms. Cam “made some serious allegations…on what she deemed irregular in the internal decision-making process of her agency.” “We asked her to formally submit in writing her complaint to the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC), which is directly under the Office of the President so that it would be acted on accordingly. She could file corruption charges against the PCSO officials and submit proof of her allegations before the said commission,” he said. — Arjay L. Balinbin
