MANILA -- Philippine Information Agency Director-General Harold Clavite agreed to disclose his bank records to the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, the anti-graft body said Monday.

Clavite submitted a bank waiver and a copy of his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth as an investigation into corruption allegations against him proceeded, PACC Commissioner Greco Belgica said.

Clavite is under investigation by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) over corruption allegations, which the PIA chief claimed was a "demolition job." The PIA is under the PCOO.

Part of the investigation is the alleged questionable procurement by the PIA of the "ASEAN Komiks" as well as Clavite's supposed use of agency funds for his hotel stay in Quezon City.
