Read the reactions of the celebrities over the alleged corruption in PhilHealth.
Celebrities took to social media to express their frustration following reports that a whistleblower claimed that officials of Philippine Health Insurance Corp (PhilHealth) have stolen Php 15 billion from the agency using various fraudulent schemes.
On Tuesday, August 4, PhilHealth’s former anti-fraud legal officer Thorrsson Montes Keith testified before the Senate Committee on the Whole about the alleged corruption.
"Naniniwala po ako na ang perang winaldas at ninakaw ay humigit kumulang ₱15 billion. Naniniwala po ako na ang dahilan kung bakit hindi natatapos ang korapsyon sa PhilHealth at naging kultura na po nito, ay ang pagtatalaga ng mga sindikato o mafia ng kanilang kasamahan, kasabwat o kapwa sindikato sa mga matataas na posisyon na nakakatulong sa kanilang iligal operasyon," Thorrsson stated on Tuesday.
Celebrities did not mince words on social media as they expressed their dismay and fury over the said alleged corruption in PhilHealth.
