President Rodrigo Duterte ordered an investigation into alleged anomalies in PhilHealth after an anti-fraud officer resigns because of ‘widespread corruption.’
The investigation was ordered by the president on Friday, June 24.
Yesterday, Anti-Fraud Legal Officer Thorrsson Montes Keith resigned in the agency due to the alleged corruption.
In his resignation letter addressed to PhilHealth President and CEO Ricardo Morales, he also mentioned that he was quitting because his salary has not been on time and ‘and it started when I investigated officers in PhilHealth’ and the ‘unfairness in the promotion process.’
He also expressed that he strongly opposed the mandatory payment of PhilHealth contributions by overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
