MANILA, Philippines – A Commission on Elections (Comelec) employee who blew the whistle on the overpriced ballot secrecy folders contract and other irregular deals in Comelec is seeking sanctuary among nuns, similar to the fate of NBN-ZTE whistleblower Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada Jr.

Atty. Melchor Magdamo, who is assigned to the office of Comelec Chairman Jose Melo, visited Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines co-chairman Mary John Mananzan to seek spiritual guidance and sanctuary after exposing the botched P700-million ballot secrecy folder deal. He was accompanied by Dr. Arwind Serrano of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting.

“My wife is asking me to request for sanctuary. Maliliit pa kasi mga anak ko,” he told ABS-CBN News.
