PCOO promises to release Mocha Uson’s travel expenses this February
Presidential Communications Operations Office Assistant Secretary Kristian Ablan said he would recommend to the Office of the President (OP) the active disclosure of the statements of assets, liabilities, and net worth (SALNs) of government officials in line with the government’s efforts to promote transparency.
“Our recommendation to the OP is that since SALN is one of the documents frequently asked from the OP and PCOO, that maybe it’s time to proactively disclose the SALNs after they are made official,” Hablan said.
Ablan made this assurance following several requests to view the SALN of PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, who has been under fire for joining several foreign trips.
To date, Ablan said Uson’s budget and accomplishment reports are available for viewing but her SALN remains a “pending” FOI request.
“We’ve released information on her budget and her accomplishment. For the travel expenses, it’s a pending FOI request. It’s due this month so we will be disclosing the travel expenses of the Assistant Secretary (Uson),” Ablan said.(PNA)
