MANILA, Philippines — We have a secret to tell you.

Did you know that there is around P9.28 billion in the proposed 2023 budget that we would never know how it would be spent?

That is because they are confidential and intelligence funds — lump sum allocations to civilian and security agencies for sensitive operations like surveillance and intelligence gathering.

What exactly are these funds? And how did they become so huge?

Tonight we ask: Anyare?

Join Xave Gregorio as he explains what confidential and intelligence funds are and what could be done about them, together with Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel III and budget expert Zy-Za Suzara.
