Lacson Bill Offers Big Rewards for Whistleblowers in Corruption Cases

A bill filed by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson seeks to offer substantial rewards and better protection to witnesses in exchange for coming out and testifying against government officials or employees involved in corruption.

Lacson said that by getting the cooperation of β€œcredible witnesses with reliable information,” his bill may address the difficulty of fighting corruption, especially those involving acts behind closed doors.

β€œThis proposed legislation seeks to encourage whistleblowers to come out in the open and put an end to the corrupt practices of some government officials or employees. At the same time, it aims to strengthen the present machinery in ensuring the full protection and security of these brave witnesses against any form of retaliation or ostracism, and establish a rewards-and-benefits system in order to ensure the livelihood and welfare of these whistleblowers,” he said in Senate Bill 258.

Hanggang tumataginting na P5 milyon na pabuya ang naghihintay sa magsisiwalat ng personal na kaalaman sa pagnanakaw at pagpapakasasa ng sinumang nakaupong opisyal ng bansa sa kaban ng bayan.

Ito ang isa sa pangunahing nilalaman ng Senate Bill 258 patungkol sa mga partikular na benipisyo ng sinumang tatayong whistleblower sa mga kaso ng katiwalian na ginawa o kinasasangkutan ng nakaupong pangulo ng bansa na iniakda at inihain ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Isinulong ni Lacson ang nabanggit na panukala sa hangaring maging mabilis ang paglutas sa mga kaso ng katiwalian na kinasasangkutan ng mga nasa gobyerno, mula sa pangulo hanggang sa may pinakamababang puwesto.
