Patricia Paz "Tish" Bautista, the wife of Comelec chairman Andres Bautista, exposed that her husband might have amassed nearly P1 billion worth of alleged ill-gotten wealth.

On August 1 before she submitted her affidavit to the NBI, Patricia met President Rodrigo Duterte in the Palace to inform him that she discovered several passbooks as well as bank and real property documents under her husband’s name and some of his relatives that were not included in his 2016 statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

In her affidavit, Patricia said she was disclosing “certain information and documents that would show that Andy (Bautista’s nickname) might have had, or currently has, misdealing and corrupt practices while in government service.”

Bautista was appointed to the Comelec by former President Benigno Aquino III in May 2015. He was also assigned as chair of the Presidential Commission on Good Government, the agency tasked with going after the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcoses.

According to INQUIRER, these were the information Patrica disclosed to President Duterte and the NBI, which were not included in Bautista's SALN:

• 35 Luzon Development Bank (LDB) passbooks with a total balance of P329,220,962
• A foreign currency account with Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. RCBC) with $12,778.30, or P640,959.53 (at P50.16 [as of Aug. 4] to $1.00)
• An RCBC peso account with P257,931.60
• An HSBC account with HK$948,358.97 or P6.10 million (at P6.43 to HK$1.00)
• A condominium unit in One Bonifacio High Street at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City
• A condo unit in The District in San Francisco, California

Patricia said she was not aware of the other real properties listed in her husband's SALN since her husband always kept her in the dark when it came to their assets.

She also discovered her husband's investments abroad “in the form of his interests in corporations and loan agreements” that were not declared in his SALN:

• Bauman Enterprises Ltd., a company established in the British Virgin Islands on Sept. 29, 2010; a trustee company that Bautista set up with Bank of Singapore.
• Mantova International Ltd., established in Brunei Darussalam on April 26, 2011.
• Mega Achieve Inc., established in Anguilla, a British overseas territory in the Caribbean, on July 15, 2014.

She said that she confronted Andy about these companies, but her husband bluntly denied his involvement.

Patricia said to reporters that since 2013, she had been wanting to separate with Andres Bautista.

She said that she sought an audience with President Duterte because she's afraid that Bautista and his network would do something bad to her and their children.

“I am getting scared… I am holding these stuff. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know how far-reaching it is. I don’t know what to do, right?” Patricia said.

“So I would think that the safest place to bring this is there (referring to MalacaƱang), because at the end of the day, this is the President. This is as high as it goes,” she added.
