Senators and congressmen should make their State of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN) available instead of hiding them, a Malacañang spokesperson said Friday.

“Depende po kung sino ‘yung hinihingan nung SALN because if Commissioner Kim [Henares] has the list, then these lawmakers should be aware that they can and should make their SALNs available,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said during a press conference.

Valte issued the statement after Bureau of Internal Revenue chief Kim Jacinto-Henares was quoted by Radyo Inquirer as saying that they have made several requests to lawmakers but that they have not yet released their SALNs to them.

This development came amid the alleged involvement of some lawmakers in the funneling of state funds to bogus groups. Kimberly Jane Tan/RSJ, GMA News
