The Department of Transportation is looking into corruption allegations made by transport and civilian groups against Land Transportation Office Chief, Assistant Secretary Vigor Mendoza II.

In a statement Tuesday, DOTr Secretary Jaime Bautista said the allegations were made through open letters from the Federated Land Transport Organizations of the Philippines and the Coalition for Good Governance, among others.

“The allegations about [Mendoza] — betrayal of public trust, grave abuse of authority, loss of trust and confidence, acts prejudicial to the public, reputational risk against the Philippine government, and corruption, among others — are all serious accusations that demand in-depth investigation and equally serious affirmative action,” Bautista said.

He asked Mendoza to submit his explanation and comments on the allegations “for our proper disposition and appropriate recommendation to the President, if necessary.” With Darwin Amojelar
