Veteran political pundit Nine Cacho-Olivarez said that the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) is refusing to obey President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to provide Senator Leila De Lima’s bank account records.

Amando Tetangco Jr. the chaired of AMLC doesn’t want to be force to disclose all bank accounts of Liberal Party who involved in corruption and crime.

“The only plausible explanation for the obvious reluctance of the AMLC executives and their investigators is that they are into still protecting the yellows who are being investigated, “ said Cacho-Olivarez.

“In this case Sen. Leila de Lima and probably many others, should Rody Duterte move to investigate the yellows in the present and past senators and congressmen who had their pork barrel allocations, but were protected, not only by the AMLC, but the then Commission on Audit, as well as the Ombudsman, who hasn’t moved a finger to investigate and charge them,” she added.

Meanwhile, President Duterte lashed out at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) saying that “I’ll count one to three and if you don’t resign, I will treat you as a drug addict. Better prepare there because I’ll give you a whack. But you are all, you are all corrupt. I am going to charge all of you there, criminally,” said Duterte who called BSP and AMLC officials “corrupt, greedy and lazy.”

Aguirre complained to Duterte: “They (AMLC) did not accomplish even the most basic task of providing an analysis for the statements of bank accounts of de Lima and the prisoners, where the sender and receiver of money will be identified.”

According to Cacho-Olivarez despite the BSP and AMLC’s being bias it had the gall to ask for more powers from Congress.

“The Senate and the Congress had better think more than twice to grant the shoddy, shady AMLC more powers that it already abuses,” said Cahco-Olivarez.
