‘P-Noy’s new ombudsman
to boost Visayas’ graft fight’

President Benigno Aquino III in his State of the Nation Address yesterday announced the appointment of retired Supreme Court Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales as the country’s new ombudsman.

When she takes office, the president said “we will have an honest-to-goodness anti-corruption office, not one that condones the corruption and abuses in government.”

The president said he expects that this year “we will have filed our first major case against the corrupt and their accomplices. And these will be real cases, with strong evidence and clear testimonies, which will lead to the punishment of the guilty.”moremoremore
