SALN Rules Changed -Ombudsman

The Office of the Ombudsman announced to the media this morning that SALN rules have changed. The shift from “Everything is secret unless allowed” to “Everything is open unless restricted” means that the SALNs of public officials will now be treated as public documents.

The issue of the SALN only came about during the impeachment trial of former Chief Justice Renato Corona and has been a household term ever since.

Corona was impeached by the lower house on December 12, 2011 and found guilty by the Senate on May 29th the next year.
