The president said Belgica did good while serving as PACC chief.

“Siya ay nilagay ko sa anti-corruption commission at marami ang trabaho niya. Hindi ito mayabang, hindi ito mahangin. Marami ‘yang alam kaya nilagay ko siya sa posisyon na delikado, delikadong mabili, delikadong matakot. Hindi ‘yon, hindi siya,” President Duterte said in a video message released on January 26.
