Pacquiao said that other "corrupt" activities should be investigated such as the Yolanda rehabilitation funds.
“Minsan, ano rin natin…may mga bagay na dapat nating tutukan especially ang corruption, lalong lalo na yan. Kailangan maipaliwanag kung saan napunta yung funding ng Yolanda,” Pacquiao said.
“Ang mga naghihirap nating kababayan na wala pang mga bahay, nangangailangan pa sila ng tulong eh nasaan yung pera? Yun ang kailangan nating imbestigahan …’Yun ang dapat nating unahin. Hindi yung gagawa ka ng butas dahil kalaban mo,” he added.
The Office of the Ombudsman earlier ordered a probe on Dela Rosa for possible violation of Presidential Decree 46, which makes it punishable for public officials and employees to receive gifts on any occasion, and Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees over alleged travel perks courtesy of Pacquiao.
