Comelec chairman Andy Bautista is being accused of amassing ill gotten wealth from no less than his former wife, Patricia “Tish” Paz-Bautista. Shortly after a three hour meeting with Philippine president Rodrigo Roa Duterte at the Music Room last August 1, Paz went to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and accomplished an affidavit which essentially says her husband has a billion pesos stashed in local and foreign banks, as well as offshore accounts.
Bautista cries harassment, even extortion. Paz is sour-graping. Rightfully so, since, according to Paz, Bautista has’nt been giving her and her four children with him, the right and lawful monthly living allowances. Andy and Tish got married in 2000 and separated sometime in 2015, when Pnoy appointed Andy to the Comelec post.
Vitaliano Aguirre III, head of the justice department, explains that they have to act since ex-Meesus Paz just signed an affidavit charging a government official of impropriety. Paz charged Andy Bautista of amassing ill-gotten wealth,a crime under the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.
