Malacañang Says ‘Suspicious’ Document Shredding Is for Duterte Ticker Tape Parade

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler is reporting that some staffers of Malacañang, the Philippine presidential palace, are disturbed and dismayed by a recent order issued to some departments under the Office of the President, to shred certain government documents and memos signed by outoing President NoyNoy Aquino and Cabinet secretaries.

Observers say the palace order is quite ‘suspicious.’

A presidential spokesperson, who spoke to The Adobo Chronicles on condition of anonymity, said that while it is true that documents were ordered to be destroyed and shredded, it was for use during a ticker tape parade planned to welcome incoming President Rodrigo Duterte to Malacañang.

Duterte is set to be inaugurated at noon on June 30, at which time Aquino’s 6-year-term as president will come to an end.
