I have not authorized anyone to solicit cash or items for any project or undertaking.
While I do outreach programs for some chosen beneficiaries, particularly in my hometown in Mulanay or my province in Quezon, the costs of such programs are personally borne by me and my family with the help of some well meaning friends who directly offer to me their assistance or contributions.
Consequently, I have not authorized any representative or intermediary to solicit on my behalf for whatever project or activity.
Anyone who will be the subject of such unauthorized solicitation should immediately report to my office at the Office of the Secretary, Department of Justice for appropriate and immediate action at landline number 02-526-2618.
We shall treat all information provided with utmost confidentiality.
Any perpetrator caught shall be fully dealt with in accordance with our laws.
- Justice Secretary Vitaliano N. Aguirre II
