MANILA – Close to a hundred complaints have already been received by the Department of Justice (DOJ) task force on corruption.
“The DOJ Action center received 35 and the Secretariat, through the Office of the Secretary received 63. However, some of the complaints received pertain to the same subject so this could be further reduced,” Justice Undersecretary and spokesperson Emmeline Aglipay-Villar told newsmen Wednesday.
Villar said the DOJ has discussed the functions of the operations center of the task force and the units under it, such as the secretariat and records custodian, operations center information system, the operations center evaluation committee, special investigation teams, and the system of filing and receiving.
“Once the Department Order detailing the duties and functions is issued, it will be fully operational. Although the secretariat has already started to receive complaints,” she said.
Commenting on the conceived workflow for investigation, Aglipay-Villar said the task force would be the one to identify the reports to be investigated first. (PNA)
