The Ombudsman confirms a PAO corruption study by PAO, Erfe


MANILA – Ombudsman Samuel Martírez confirmed on Friday that his office is investigating corruption allegations against Public Prosecutor's Office (PAO) Percid Acosta and the agency's crime boss, Erwin Erfe.

This was followed by a demonstration filed by PAO attorneys claiming that the irregular transactions related to Acosta's crusade against the Denguxia vaccine.

PAO represents families of children alleged to have fallen victim to the ill effects of the dengue vaccine, whose use was discontinued in 2017 after its manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, warned of the risks.

In the rally, PAO's lawyers demanded the preventive suspension of Acosta and Erfe amid a corruption investigation.

They claim that PAO releases funds that "were never used as intended."

"Respondent Acosta ordered his colleagues to edit, review and update PAO purchase orders, purchase orders, order forms, memoranda and other documentation to look legitimate and justify the PAO victim's diversion to Deng victims. . "The complaint read.

Acosta called the complaint "work to be demolished."

More details to follow.
