/ 04:46 PM July 09, 2018

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales on Monday advised her successor to “constantly monitor cases or you will go crazy.”

“Given the volume of work here, you’ll go crazy if you don’t monitor [status of cases],” Morales said in an interview with Karen Davilla on ANC Headstart.

Morales said she keeps pieces of paper with reminders to call investigators to follow-up investigation reports. She said she expects them (investigators) to explore all sides of issues that crop up during investigation.

She added that her successor should give priority to high-profile cases such as the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) cases that involve millions of pesos.
