Malacañang announced that President Rodrigo Duterte still has full trust in Health Sec. Francisco Duque III.
This is despite the Senate’s recommendation to file a case of malversation of public funds Sec. Duque due to PhilHealth anomaly.
Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said President Duterte is still awaiting the outcome of the investigation by the task force formed by the Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to Sec. Roque, the task force investigation is expected to end on September 14.
“Si Presidente naman po ay nagtitiwala pa rin kay Secretary Duque pero antayin po natin ang rekomendasyon ng task force dahil kung meron din ganyang rekomendasyon ang task force ay rerspetuhin din ng Presidente ang rekomendasyon,” ani Sec. Roque.
