Malacanang will have no qualms if Philippine National Police Chief Dir. Gen. Alan Purisima will be subjected to a lifestyle check, just like any ordinary police.
Presidential Spokesman Secretary Edwin Lacierda made the comment after DILG Secretary Mar Roxas suggested that Gen. Purisima and other officials of the PNP should also undergo lifestyle check in order to know who is being corrupt.
According to Lacierda, Malacanang should support the call of DILG Secretary Roxas for a lifestyle check because this isn’t exactly new to officials of the government. “and I suppose everybody should welcome the call of Secretary Mar Roxas to look at the lifestyle of, in his case, the PNP. But let me just emphasize, this is not something…the first time that is happening in the government. This has been ongoing. A lifestyle check has been ongoing in the other departments in the executive branch.”
