Cesar Montano was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as Tourism Promotions Board chief operating officer last December 2016.
Employees of the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), an office
under the Department of Tourism (DOT), filed a complaint against their chief
operating officer Cesar Montano and submitted it to the Presidential Action
In a report
by ABS-CBN’s Primy Cane, the board listed 30 violations of the actor including
mismanaging the department’s funds and possible corruption.
In the letter, it also said that Cesar got into
multimillion-peso worth of contracts for holding concerts here and abroad,
where he was also a guest performer.
It was also stated that he hired friends and relatives,
whose roles are already the same with the incumbent TPB employees, making it redundant.
He is also said to have used the TPB’s funds for trips not
related to his work.
Cesar, who is a staunch supporter of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte
and was appointed to the post last December, has yet to speak about the issue.
