“If the President has nothing to hide, he has nothing to fear,” the Ombudsman said.The Ombudsman is also standing by the media statements of Overall Deputy Ombudsman Arthur Carandang on bank transaction records of Duterte and his family. Carandang said the records from the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) show a flow of money that would amount to P1 billion. but the AMLC (Anti-Money Laundering Council) immediately released statement saying it is not the source of “documents and information attached by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV in his complaint regarding the alleged bank acounts of President Rodrigo Duterte."
