This is the recommendation of the  Presidential Anti-Corruption Council (PACC) to President Rodrigo Duterte against 36 officials of the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) over alleged irregularities in the government’s insurance agency.

The recommendation is contained in a report on initial findings by PACC over the alleged massive corruption in Philhealth submitted on Monday to Malacanang, said PACC Commissioner Greco Belgica.

In a radio interview, Belgica said 36 “high-ranking and low-ranking officials” of PhiliHealth are involved in the thievery. He did not, however, identify the executives.

According to Belgica, the Senate hearing on Tuesday on corruption in PhilHealth confirmed the PACC’s initial findings.
