The UP Law Research Team, commissioned by The Asia Foundation through its project lead UP Law Alumnus Guiller-Kristoffer Lamug, drafted a comprehensive report on corruption in the Philippine law enforcement sector and presented the report during the Forum Webinar attended by Sandiganbayan Justices, officers from the Office of the Ombudsman, the Department of Justice, the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, and other agencies with law enforcement functions.
The Research Team continues to work with the Foundation on the report which will be published in 2022.
