PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has appointed an anti-crime advocate to head the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC).

Duterte signed the appointment papers of Dante Jimenez on January 12 but was released to the media on Monday.

Jimenez is the founding chairman of the anti-crime group, the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC).
