PRESIDENT Benigno S. Aquino III has signed a new law declaring December of every year as "Anti-Corruption Month" in the entire country in a bid to create awareness among the Filipino people on the adverse effects of corruption.

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said during the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Friday that the Chief Executive signed on May 27 the Republic Act No. 10589 entitled "An Act Declaring December of every year as 'Anti-Corruption Month' in the entire country."

The new law is also known as the "Anti-Corruption Month Act."

The Act, which is a consolidation of Senate Bill No. 3376 and House Bill No. 3005, was finally passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives on February 4, 2013 and February 5, 2013 respectively.

President Aquino mandated all heads of government agencies and instrumentalities, including government-owned and controlled corporations as well as local government units and employers in the private sector, to conduct activities designed to create awareness among the people on the adverse effects of corruption.

"The awareness campaign must not only contain information on what constitutes an act of corruption, but also what citizens must do when faced with such corruption," the President noted.

The President designated the Office of the Ombudsman as the lead agency for coordination purposes.
The Act shall take effect fifteen (15) days following its publication in at least two (2) newspapers of general circulation. (PND)
