No Such Order from the President

It has come to the attention of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) that text messages and news reports are circulating that President Benigno S. Aquino III has ordered the BIR to conduct an investigation of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC). 

The BIR categorically denies that there is such an on-going tax audit of the INC.

No such order was received from the President. And there is NO on-going investigation of the INC as of this writing,” said Commissioner of Internal Revenue Kim S. Jacinto-Henares.
