Cam to ‘spill beans’ on PCSO corruption

Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) Director Sandra Cam on Thursday said she was ready to “spill the beans” on the supposed corruption in the agency.

She said she would disclose the names of those allegedly involved in corruption if she was called to a congressional inquiry.

“Philippine Presidential Anti-Crime and Corruption (PACC) Commissioner Greco Belgica already has in his possession all the documents to prove corruption in Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office since May 2019,” Cam said.

These documents, she said, were also submitted to President Rodrigo Duterte when they met in Tokyo, Japan in May.

“President Duterte and I met in Tokyo. He asked me for proof. I then gave him the documents that proved that there is corruption in PCSO. He then asked me to hand over these documents to Sen. [Christopher Lawrence] ‘Bong’ Go and the latter gave these documents to Commissioner Belgica, who is in charge in the investigation,” Cam said.

She added that she had additional information she would disclose either before the Senate or the House of Representatives.

On Wednesday, Belgica said he would ask Cam to substantiate her allegations of corruption at the PCSO.

“We are interested to hear what she has to [say] to us, not to take it as the truth, but to investigate and allow it to go through the process,” he added.

The PACC is currently investigating some 15 officials of the PCSO.

On July 26, the President stopped all gaming operations of the PCSO, citing “massive corruption” in the agency.

The suspension on the operation of the more popular lotto was lifted on July 30 after Malacañang found no irregularities in its operation.

Gaming schemes such as the Peryahan ng Bayan, small town lottery and keno, however, remain suspended pending the results of an investigation into alleged corruption.
