Senator Risa Hontiveros questioned the plan of President Rodrigo Duterte to dissolve the Presidential Commission on Good Government.

According to Sen. Hontiveros, the culture of private arrangements will become widespread if the PCGG is abolished.

Sen. Hontiveros also inquired on the timing of Pres. Duterte’s decision, since it coincides with his revelation that the Marcos family has offered to return a portion of their ill-gotten wealth, which allegedly includes gold bars.

Sen. Hontiveros also believes that the Marcos family should also answer for the violence that happened during the Martial Law.

Sen. Hontiveros asked that Pres. Duterte make public the details presented by the emissary of the Marcos family regarding the plan to return the said ill-gotten wealth to the government.
