MANILA, Philippines – The Management Association of the Philippines is setting up a fund that would serve as aid for pork barrel scam whistleblowers Benhur Luy and several others.

MAP President Melito Salazar Jr. said they would like to send the message that the private sector is supporting these whistleblowers, in order to encourage more people to come forward and expose similar issues pertaining to corruption of public funds.

This is not the first time for MAP to come up with a whistleblowers’ fund. In 2011, they were also able to set up a fund for then Commission on Audit auditor, now commissioner, Heidi Mendoza, and Lt. Gen. George Rabusa, regarding the plunder case against AFP Comptroller, Maj. Gen. Carlos Garcia.
