Whistleblowers now under WPP
By Elmer N. Manuel – June 27, 2019

The Department of Justice (DoJ) yesterday revealed that the two whistleblowers who exposed the multi-billion Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) “ghost claims” scam are now under the Witness Protection Program (WPP).

In a statement, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said Edwin Roberto and Leizel de Leon have been admitted into the WPP.

“They have been provisionally admitted into the WPP, good for 90 days, pending investigation,” Guevarra said.

The justice secretary is referring to the preliminary investigation for estafa and falsification of public documents against WellMed Dialysis Center executives Dr. John Ray Gonzales, medical director; Claro Sy, chairman; Alvin Sy, corporate treasurer; Therese Francesca Tan, purchasing officer; Dick Ong, administration officer; and physicians Dr. Porshia Natividad and Joemie Soriano.

The announcement came after Guevarra met with Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III on Tuesday.

Duque vowed to help the National Bureau of Investigation in the ongoing probe of the alleged multi-billion PhilHealth ghost claims scheme.
