“While we’re on the topic of the worldwide web, allow me to mention that the Department of Finance has also recently established a website, called ”Pera Ng Bayan,” which receives complaints on the misuse of public funds,” the President said in his speech during the groundbreaking ceremonies for Nestle Philippines’ fifth manufacturing plant here.

“We have also increased opportunities to punish fraud by taxpayers and government employees by having the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and Bureau of Customs (BOC) file highly visible corruption cases alternating every other week,” he added.

Pera ng Bayan is an initiative of the Office of the Secretary of Finance in line with the Aquino Administration’s efforts to make good on its credo “Kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap.”

The Pera ng Bayan website provides a feedback mechanism from the citizens to the Department of Finance and its attached agencies utilizing relevant social network tools.

The citizens should be able to send information relevant to graft, improper action, negligence, lavish lifestyle and other illegal practices of civil servants under the department, as well as report exemplary performance of the same.

This will enable the citizens in becoming an active partner in the Department’s drive against tax evaders, smugglers, and erring officials of the Department and its attached agencies such as the BIR and BOC.
