Fighting Corruption

by Dr. R. J. A. Olaguer

A book on anti-graft, entitled “Fighting Corruption,” by Dr. R. J. A. Olaguer states that “…because of the mistaken notion that, once the case is filed with Sandiganbayan, the GIPO has already completed his job as far as he is concerned. In the end, the performance of the Office of the Ombudsman as a whole, including GIPO and the ASPs of the Office of the Special Prosecutor shall be judged, not by the number of cases filed before the Sandiganbayan, but by the number of cases subject of conviction by the Sandiganbayan. In short, it is the quality of cases, and not their quanity, that should be of significant consideration. As of last count, the conviction rate in the Sandiganbayan is only 40%.”

“Against all these odds, the Office of the Ombudsman doggedly continues combating graft and corruption in the country. The question is: are we winning the war against graft and corruption?”
