DISCLOSE PNOY'S RICHES, TOO!
Along with that of Chief Justice Corona, the latest statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) must be REVEALED NOW for PUBLIC SCRUTINY.
Especially on how exactly, IN DETAIL, did Pnoy earn more than P39 million, or more than P3 million monthly or P100,000 daily after just a year as president.
When the monthly salary of the president is only P63,000 after tax, or only P819,000 annually.
I remember before that Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda justified the increase by supposed inheritances and other money matters within Pnoy’s family.
It would be VERY INTERESTING to have a look at ALL THE DOCUMENTS related to the massive increase in Pnoy’s money.
If Pnoy has nothing to hide, then there should be no problem for him to release his SALN, and all documents related to it, at once to the public.
He and Malacanang should ANSWER all questions that will be raised by anybody, regardless of political affiliation or class in society, with COMPLETE DETAILS.
There should be no reason for Pnoy or Malacanang not to reveal his SALN and JUSTIFY IN DETAIL each and every entry in it.
And speaking of Valte, it would be much more interesting if the public can have a look at her SALN too, as well as those of her boss Edwin Lacierda and the entire Cabinet!
I repeat, IF THEY HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, then there shouldn’t be any problem for them to public disclose their SALNs and answer queries from anybody, if any.
For the past several months, especially now in the impeachment trial of
Corona, TRANSPARENCY and TRUTH have been the favorite words of Pnoy and his Malacanang aides in attacking . Corona
Now is the BEST TIME for him to prove he means what he says, by setting an example.
There is NO LAW EXEMPTING Pnoy from immediately disclosing his SALN, Anybody correct me if I’m wrong. As president, Pnoy is supposed to be our role model for transparency and truth.
If Pnoy refuses to release his SALN with no convincing or on a hair-thin reason, something STINKS, guys! The ‘tuwid na daan’ is no more! 30
