From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On the Senate probe on the SALN

Implementation of FOI is a learning process, especially with the concurrent application of the Data Privacy Act. The Executive has raised the SALN issue with the National Privacy Commission and we are waiting for their guidance. Meanwhile, we reiterate that there were no violations committed related to the release of SALNs of some Cabinet members.

The Executive would cooperate and would attend the investigation on SALNs, if and once called by the Senate.
