The Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) is a special body with functions created under Executive Order No.1 of President Corazon C. Aquino on February 28, 1986. Its three basic tasks are:

  • to recover ill-gotten wealth accumulated during the Marcos regime.
  • to investigate cases of graft and corruption as may be assigned by the President.
  • to adopt institutional safeguards to prevent corruption in Government.



The Commission is a quasi-judicial body composed of a chairperson and four commissioners. The Commission has four departments headed by a director. Each department is under the direct supervision of a commissioner who reports directly to the chairperson.


The principal activity of the Commission is to prosecute vigorously to a successful conclusion the cases for the recovery of ill-gotten wealth and, pending judicial determination of the ownership thereof, to preserve and maintain the assets. These are pursued by the following functions:

  • To gather, evaluate and investigate information regarding ill-gotten wealth
  • To issue sequestration, hold and/or freeze or to lift such orders as may be warranted
  • To preserve, maintain and prevent dissipation of sequestered assets
  • To file and prosecute cases whether civil or criminal for the recovery of ill-gotten wealth
  • To promote sustained efficiency and maintain the integrity of all its transactions
