For Senate President Protempore Ralph Recto, the board of directors from the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation together with five members of the Cabinet should be charged for their alleged involvement in the corruption within the said agency.

According to Recto, the Senate’s committee report on the issue of PHILHEALTH felt incomplete because it did not identify the board of directors’ liabilities when in fact, they should have been in-charged of safeguarding the funds of PHILHEALTH.

Aside from Health Sec. Francisco Duque III, Finance Sec. Carlos Dominguez, Budget Sec. Wendell Avisado, Social Welfare and Development Sec. Rolando Bautista and Labor Sec. Silvestre Bello III comprised PHILHEALTH’s board of directors.

Recto said that based on the Senate’s investigation, the four Cabinet members don’t even attend board meetings even when the agency was facing the controversial IRM issue.

Even the task force formed by the Department of Justice failed to include the participation of the five Cabinet members in its report.

Recto expressed his dismay that no charges have been filed yet against Duque and Atty. Rodolfo Del Rosario, resigned PHILHEALTH’s Senior Vice President for the Legal Sector.
