MANILA - Employees of the House of Representatives took home P112,000 in bonuses from the chamber's leadership, a source told ABS-CBN News on Thursday.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source confirmed the release of the bonus to all employees but denied reports that workers got P150,000.

The House leadership has yet to comment on the report, with no lawmaker willing to speak on the record about the matter.

Traditionally, the chamber hands down bonuses to all employees from the House leadership every Christmas.
