“It is being used properly,” Juico said.

Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is facing a plunder case for allegedly pocketing the P325-M PCSO intelligence fund during her term.

Juico also clarified the news on the transfer of PCSO’s main office from its present location at PICC building in Pasay City to its property on San Marcelino Street in Manila.

In the second part of the interview, she clarified the issues hurled against the salaries of PCSO employees and the board members.

“We didn’t break the bonus rule,” she said.
