NBI called to investigate pay-roll padding inside PSC

A scandal has rocked the Philippine Sports Commission. And the agency is seeking the help of the National Bureau of Investigation to seek the truth.

After numerous warnings were raised, the PSC is looking at an alleged “payroll-padding” scam that is reportedly headed by one of its employees.

“We have sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation on the matter so we cannot comment further,” said PSC OIC Ramon Fernandez.

“Suffice it to say that there were red-flags which alerted us, and so we acted accordingly.”

In a document obtained by Tiebreaker Times, PSC director Merlita Ibay asked the NBI to investigate an anomaly in its books.

According to the letter, funds were transferred to an employee named Paul Michael Padua. Those funds, however, were supposed to go to athletes.

The agency was alerted to the “unusual payroll” movement by Land Bank of the Philippines assistant vice president Marietta Cabusao.

“We hope that we can get to the truth and bring the accountable to justice swiftly,” continued Fernandez.

“The PSC will never waver in its duty to protect the interest of its stakeholders and the Filipino people.”
