dc.description.abstractThe Philippines has statutes ensuring the stability of its financial system, including the secrecy of bank deposits. Foreign countries have similar statutes for that purpose. Corrupt Philippine officials have taken advantage of these domestic and foreign laws to conceal, protect, and spirit away their ill-gotten wealth, and later launder the proceeds through seemingly legitimate investments. The identification, seizure and confiscation, transfer, and disposition of the ill-gotten wealth in favor of the Philippine Government demand international cooperation, especially from the competent law enforcement and judicial authorities where these ill-gotten wealth are located. Bilateral treaties provide an effective legal framework as to the mechanics for this cooperation. The passage of an anti–money laundering law by the Philippines has boosted the anti-corruption initiatives of the Office of the Ombudsman in its domestic investigations and prosecution. Further, the ratification and implementation of bilateral and regional MLATs would ensure the placement of mechanisms to detect, trace, seize, confiscate, transfer, forfeit, and dispose, in favor of the Philippine Government, wealth unlawfully accumulated by its corrupt officials. Finally, to ensure a successful and sustained anti-corruption campaign that would cut through international borders, the competencies of Philippine anti-corruption investigators and lawyers must be upgraded to equip them with the knowledge and legal skills to use the various MLATs and other treaties vis-à-vis the anti-corruption and anti–money laundering laws of other states.
