Pork Barrel Case
During the senate investigations involving the Priority Development Assistance Fund scam, also known as the pork barrel scam, PSBank was one of the domestic Philippine banks included in the senate inquiry about the bank accounts of the whistleblowers.
Moreover, PSBank was also included as one of the banks from which Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. and his family, as well as those of Janet Lim-Napoles and her pseudo-NGOs, have utilized to launder the controversial “pork barrel” funds.
