Petition to appoint former Sen. Wigberto Ka Bobby Taсada as Ombudsman sign now

Dear Mr. President:

Greetings of Peace!

To wholly address the problem of corruption is a priority of your administration. The resignation of Merceditas Gutierrez as ombudsman is a welcome respite to finally pursue your call for matuwid na daan and kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap.

We, from various civil society groups, are behind Your Excellency in this fight against corruption and we believe that the next step to expedite the realization of this goal is to appoint a new ombudsman that has integrity, high values and untainted reputation. We urgently need an Ombudsman that has a distinguished track record in fighting the evils in society and whose dedication to the countrys development is unquestionable.

We believe that former Sen. Wigberto Ka Bobby Taсada is fit for the position of Ombudsman. He has an untarnished public servant record -- as a member of the Philippine Senate and the House of Representatives, and as Commissioner of the Bureau of Customs (BoC) under President Corazon Aquino. As Chairperson of the Blue Ribbon Committee in the latter half of the 8th Philippine Congress, Ka Bobby recommended the prosecution of those involved in the rice cartel and overpricing of instructional materials, amongst others. And as BoC Commissioner, Ka Bobby filed cases against smugglers and their cohorts in government.

He is a nationalist that consistently upholds the peoples right and welfare such as his strong opposition to one-sided and unbridled globalization, the US military bases, and the evils of corruption to name a few. To date, he still serves as a leader of various caused-oriented groups that espoused human rights, peace, and fair trade.

The new Ombudsman has big responsibilities ahead of him. He must be able to prosecute corrupt public officials and clean the ranks without fear or favor. And we vow to Ka Bobby Taсadas capability and integrity to do this and more.

Thank you.
