Baku, February 18, AZERTAC
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Friday he had ordered the anti-money laundering council to make public his bank accounts, a day after one of his staunchest critics revived allegations of millions of dollars of hidden assets.
According to Yahoo, at a private dinner with retired military and police officers in Baguio City, Duterte said he was proud to have been made an honorary member of the Philippine Military Academy class of 1967 and added that "I would shame the class" by any involvement in corruption.
The anti-money laundering council was set up under the country's central bank to investigate illegal bank transfers and halt the flow of dirty money.
Duterte said the allegations made by Senator Antonio Trillanes, a critic of the president and himself a graduate of the Philippines Military Academy, was "pure garbage".
