MANILA, Philippines—All members of President Rodrigo Duterte’s official family are open to face lifestyle check by the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC), Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said Wednesday.

“Lahat kami open for lifestyle check ng PACC,” Nograles said during the Kapihan sa Manila Bay.


Nograles even claimed that he is assuming he has been under a lifestyle check by the government the moment he took the job as Cabinet secretary.

PACC Commissioner Greco Belgica earlier bared that two Cabinet members were under investigation over complaints of corruption.

However, the PACC official refused to name the two secretaries, stressing that the existence of complaints does not mean they are already guilty of corruption.

The President has fired several government officials in the past over allegations of graft and corruption while holding office for the present administration.

But he was also criticized for “recycling” people he had sacked by reappointing them to other government positions. /jpv
