Special envoy to China Mon Tulfo admitted that there are more corrupt officials in President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration compared to the previous ones–from Fidel Ramos to Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III.
Tulfo also said that he’s disappointed with what he has experienced as a government watchdog as he received more libel cases under the Duterte admin compared with the previous ones.
The libel cases against him were related to his column where he calls out corrupt officials.
“All I’m doing is acting as a watchdog of the government that I helped to power in my own little way. And to think that there are more corrupt officials in the Duterte administration than in the previous administrations — from Fidel Ramos to Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino 3rd!” Tulfo wrote in an August 22 column in Manila Times.
“Not one Cabinet or bureau official in Noynoy’s government filed a libel case against me for my acerbic commentary. It’s only in this administration I’m helping to succeed that I’m being persecuted,” he added Tulfo.
