Harry Roque says Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s SALN release up to Ombudsman


September 1, 2021

Netizens caught Harry Roque lying about Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s refusal to release his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN).

Roque said Duterte is just waiting on the Ombudsman to release it.

“Well, he could [unilaterally show his SALN], but he respects the Ombudsman and he leaves it to the Ombudsman,” he said during a media briefing.

“Because there’s new policy being implemented by the Ombudsman as a constitutional body, and we respect the prerogative of the Ombudsman in this regard,”

Roque was referring to a circular by the Ombudsan that limits public access to the SALNs of the President, Vice President, and certain government officials.

Rappler’s Lian Buan had to fact-check Roque, who has consistently making lies on numerous issues.

Duterte has always been an advocate for eradicating corruption but many people find that hard to believe.
