- Otso Diretso candidate Samira Gutoc warned President Rodrigo Duterte that not fully declaring his wealth is an impeachable offense
- She noted that the same case happened with former Chief Justice Renato Corona
- Gutoc also reminded the President that all public officials should be transparent and be truthful to their SALN
Otso Diretso candidate and former member of the Bangsamoro Transition Committee, Samira Gutoc, has warned President Rodrigo Duterte about him not fully disclosing his wealth in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN).
KAMI learned that Gutoc insisted all public officials are required to be transparent with their wealth under the Philippine Constitution, as reported by the Inquirer (author Gabriel Pabico Lalu).
“Failure to declare a public official’s true wealth is a culpable violation of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust,” she said.
“It is provided for in Art. XI, Section 17 of the 1987 Constitution that ‘a public officer or employee shall, upon assumption of office and as often thereafter as may be required by law, submit a declaration under oath of his assets, liabilities, and net worth,” Gutoc added.

The senatorial aspirant noted that the same case already happened to former Chief Justice Renato Corona who was impeached for not declaring his dollar accounts in his SALN.
As previously reported by KAMI, the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) released a report claiming that President Duterte, along with his children Sara and Paolo, have undeclared wealth that could explain the sudden increase in their riches.
The President said that they are not doing anything illegal and they do not touch the taxpayers’ money.
