Duterte tells Congress to probe his alleged ill-gotten wealth

President Rodrigo Duterte has asked the Congress to investigate the consistent allegation that he has undeclared wealth.

In his speech facing the media before his flight to India, Duterte said it is about time for the allegation to put an end.

“That is why I want to… Congress to proceed. Mag-imbestiga kayo. As a matter of fact ako yung mismo nag-i-insist para malaman ninyo ‘yung totoo,” he said.

He emphasized that there is nothing to see even they will push through the investigation.

“It’s about time that magharapan tayo. Kaya ko binibira lahat. Wala kayong makalkal sa akin,” he added.

VERA files reported that Duterte and his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Carpio, have undeclared wealth amounting to around Php100 million.

According to the files, Sara failed to declare between P44.25 million to P85.73 million in the investments from 2006 to 2014 in their respective Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN).

Malacañang responded to the report by daring VERA Files to show proof of the undeclared investments.
