JUSTICE Secretary Menardo Guevarra is expecting a deluge of complaints swamping the Task Force Against Corruption once election season begins.

“The Task Force Against Corruption anticipates that it will receive a lot of complaints or reports alleging corruption as the country draws near to the next major elections,” Guevarra said.

“That is why the TF operations center will work hard to filter and screen these complaints and determine which ones deserve to be thoroughly investigated,” he added.

Recently, Guevarra disclosed that corruption complaints have started to come in droves since Task Force Against Corruption was created pursuant to President Duterte’s recent order.

“Marami-rami na. Nagsisimula nang magdatingan. That’s why we are organizing our operations center,” Guevarra said.

President Duterte recently directed the Department of Justice to investigate corruption in the entire government.

“I hope that all government workers, officials are listening. This is a memorandum from me to Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra. The subject is investigating corruption allegations in the entire government,” he said in a taped speech.

“I will concentrate the last remaining years of my term fighting corruption kasi hanggang ngayon, hindi humihina, lumalakas pa lalo. Para na tuloy naging inutil ang mga opisyal ng bayan, na wala talagang magawa with the onslaught of corruption,” the President vowed.
