Malacañang on Friday reiterated its commitment to cleanse the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) of corruption after a hashtag on the issue went viral.

“There is no let-up in our drive to make erring officials of [PhilHealth] accountable for their alleged misdeeds,” Palace spokesman Harry Roque said.

Roque made the statement after the hashtag #wag_kalimutan_yung_binulsang_15billion_sa_philhealth_challenge went viral on Facebook and Twitter.

He said the Department of Justice-led task force ordered to probe the state insurer would soon complete its investigation.

“The [DOJ], through its PhilHealth Task Force, is finalizing the complaints identified in its report to President Rodrigo Duterte for filing before the proper venue. At the same time, the composite teams tasked to look into but not limited to the PhilHealth Legal Sector are continuing their investigation,” Roque said.

“Zero tolerance against corruption is not just a catchphrase but a serious matter in the current administration,” he added.

Duterte earlier approved the recommendations of the PhilHealth task force to file charges against PhilHealth officials, including its former president Ricardo Morales.

PhilHealth has been under scrutiny since its former anti-fraud officer, Thorrsson Keith, claimed about P15 billion of the firm’s funds were pocketed by a “corrupt mafia.” John Ezekiel J. Hirro
