Following COA Issue, Duterte Exposes Audit Reports On Roxas, De Lima During Aquino Admin
DUTERTE EXPOSES COA REPORTS – President Rodrigo Duterte dug up some audit reports regarding unliquidated balances during the Aquino administration.
Recently, the President and his admin were called out regarding “deficiencies” on the Commission on Audit’s latest report. However, Duterte emphasized that there was no corruption involved.
Furthermore, he told COA that they should reconfigure their auditing and allow officials to finish their jobs first. Now, Duterte highlights “unliquidated” cash advances from departments during Aquino’s time as president.
According to Duterte, there was more than P7.6 billion worth of unliquidated cash advances transferred to various projects. These involved the Department of Justice (DOH) once led by Leila de Lima and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in which Mar Roxas was the head.
Duterte exposed these findings on Tuesday during his taped weekly public address. Moreover, Duterte said that the DOJ had an unliquidated balanced from 2013 that summed up to P617.44 million.
Meanwhile, the DILG had unliquidated fund transfers in 2014 that totalled P7 billion. But, the DOH denied that it had P600 million worth of unliquidated cash advances.
On the other hand, a 2013 COA report flagged Roxas with the P7.040 billion unliquidated fund transfers. Based on an article from Inquirer, this was due to “non-monitoring of liquidations and submission of financial reports”.
Bringing it back to the COA issue on the DOH, Duterte said Duque and the DOH used the funds to purchase. In contrast, Duterte highlighted that Roxas asked for a cash advance.
