PAO chief Persida Rueda Acosta testifies during the Senate probe into Dengvaxia controversy.

Public Attorney Persida Acosta said Wednesday that the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) would be filing four criminal charges against people believed responsible for deaths being linked to the anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia.

“Tapos na ang histo-pathological exam ng mga tissue na isinagawa ng ating mga pathologist,” Acosta said in a radio interview.


“Bukas ay criminal cases na ang ipa-file,” she said, referring to the cases to be filed for the families of four children who died after receiving Dengvaxia.

In filing the cases, Acosta said they would name those “definitely” responsible for the deaths. However, she added that there would also be a “John Doe” or an unnamed accused pending the completion of documents on their participation in the cases. /cbb
