In an effort to strengthen the anti-corruption drive of the Duterte Administration, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Wednesday, November 13, joined the signing of the Manifesto of Support to the anti-corruption campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte and the introduction of the Katarungan Desk during an event at the Presidential Museum and Library in Malacañang Palace, Manila.
Katarungan Desk is a one-stop shop for the public to lodge all kinds of complaints regarding corruption, peace and order, and similar matters.
The desk comes with “dulugan” forms and a drop box where Filipinos can send their complaints related to the government. The initiative has been launched initially at LRT, MRT and PNR stations and terminals.
Likening the Katarungan Desks to Malasakit Centers, Go said that the initiative aims to streamline the delivery of government service to Filipinos.
“Katarungan na desk, parang similar rin po ito sa ating Malasakit Center natin.
Ang atin naman dito, kung paano mapapabilis ang serbisyo sa mga tao. Huwag na natin pahirapan ang ating mga kababayan,” Go said.
Go added that the Katarungan desk aims to make it more accessible for the public to reach the government and for their concerns to be heard and addressed.
“Sa Katarungan Desk, magkakaroon na po ng mabilis na access ang ating mga kababayan na hindi na kailangan ng atin mga kababayan na maghanap ng mga opisina kung saan sila magsusumbong,” he added.
He further said that, “Narito po tayo bilang trabahante ng bayan para magserbisyo po sa kanila at para mapabilis ang serbisyo para hindi na po nila kailangan pa na magpalaboy-laboy sa daan upang humingi ng tulong.”
