Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros on the Deputy Ombudsman's suspension

It was reported that the Office of the President put Overall Deputy Ombudsman Melchor Arthur Carandang under a 90-day preventive suspension and "formally charged" him with "grave misconduct" and "grave dishonesty" for the unauthorized disclosures of the alleged bank transactions of President Rodrigo Duterte and his family.

But how can someone be guilty of "divulging valuable information" and "misuse of confidential information", that, according to Malacanang, is fake?

By filing cases against Carandang, is Malacañang confirming the authenticity of the AMLC (Anti-Money Laundering Council) records on President Duterte's bank accounts?
