The Commission on Audit says the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp. cannot write off a P1.66 billion financial assistance to Westmont Bank/United Overseas Bank of the Philippines and P325 million loaned to Keppel Monte Savings Bank.

In its ruling, the COA says the recommended write-off by the PDIC will result in losses for the government and taxpayers. ANC News Now, October 18, 2012
