Dr. Danilo Pacaña, CPA, a patriotic crusader, was the only one out of 105 million Filipinos with the audacity to charge a P338 million tax evasion case against the country's most powerful tycoon, Lucio C. Tan. Likewise, he was the only citizen who charged Tan, together with former BIR Commissioner Jose Ong and top bank and BIR officials, for criminal acts due to corruption with the ombudsman, Regional Trial Court, and all the way to the Sandiganbayan.He also blew the whistle on the economic sabotage committed by most major banks by way of tax evasion of the Documentary Stamps Tax and interests earned on time deposits, which he reported to President Corazon C. Aquino in 1987. As an offshoot of his information, the BIR was able to collect tax payments in several billions of pesos from the banks involved in the anomaly, which benefited the entire nation.He is now pursuing another tax evasion case that he filed against tycoon Lucio Tan estimated to reach a staggering amount of P1.2 trillion which again, remained uncollected to date by the Bureau of Internal Revenue due to massive corruption.His advocacy for corporate integrity, good governance, and justice for all drove him to the labyrinth of massive corruption in the bureaucracy, which went all the way to the doors of Malacanang. In the pursuit of his advocacy, he is now based in the US. He will soon be available for public appearances and speaking engagements worldwide to share his purpose-driven life story.
