  • Comelec Chair Andres Bautista

JUSTICE Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said that the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) is looking into the allegations against Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Andres Bautista.

The PCGG, an attached agency of the Department of Justice, has the power to investigate cases of ill-gotten wealth, Aguirre said in a talk to journalists.

Bautista served as PCGG chair from 2010 until his appointment to the Comelec in 2015.

"These are possible violations of anti-graft, commissions on referred cases, possible ghost employees and lots of possible travel violations not in accordance with the administrative procedure", he said.

There are also documents pertaining to Bautista's travel overseas which were given to him a few days ago which he has yet to persue.

However, he said the documents were given to him a few days ago and he has yet to peruse them.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is conducting a separate probe on Bautista for his alleged unexplained wealth.

The NBI is now investigating the claim of Patricia Bautista that her husband has 35 bank accounts, condominium units and properties local and overseas that are not listed in his Statement of Assets Liabilities and Net Worth (SALN).

Aguirre said he would not ask Bautista to issue a waiver for the opening of his so-called bank accounts. However, it would be easier for the investigators if Bautista would do so, he added.
