Issues Concern: Required Sworn Statement/Affidavit on Disclosure of Relations



Whether a sworn statement/affidavit signed by the directors, officers, and controlling stockholders of a corporation aside from the Omnibus Sworn Statement is necessary to comply with the requirement for a sworn affidavit under Section 47 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act 9184.

[I]t is our view that the submission of the Omnibus Sworn Statement, signed by the duly authorized/designated representative of the corporation, sufficiently satisfies the requirement for a sworn affidavit on disclosure of relations under Section 47 of the IRR and a separate sworn statement/affidavit signed by all the directors, officers, and stockholders of such corporation is not necessary.
