#PingTweets: On the SC decision on the PNP’s purchase of used choppers in 2009: Let ax fall on the ‘mastermind’

tweet0201-chopper

In 2011, Sen. Lacson exposed irregularities in the P105-million purchase of helicopters by the Philippine National Police and initiated a Senate investigation into it.
By intentionally misrepresenting the helicopters they were selling as brand new and likewise, by intentionally accepting the same as such, both MAPTRA and the PNP may have entered into an anomalous contract which not only gave unwarranted benefits or advantage to a party but also one which is manifestly and grossly disadvantageous to the government in violation of Section 3 (E) and (G) of Republic Act 3019, otherwise known as the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

Read: Senate Bill 1638, An Act Seeking to Strengthen the Office of the Ombudsman via a Retirement Benefit System

Senate Bill 1638 strengthens the Office of the Ombudsman by establishing a retirement benefit system for the Ombudsman, his/her deputies, the special prosecutor and other officials and employees performing legal, prosecution, investigation and corruption prevention functions. It also seeks to augment employees’ benefits.

Given the indispensable role of the Office of the Ombudsman in the eradication of graft and corruption, it is only but fitting to provide them with a competitive retirement scheme commensurate and comparable to other officials and employees in government performing equally vital functions.”

Faeldon, Sinampal ni Lacson ng Economic Sabotage sa Ombudsman

Dahil sa pagpapalusot ng mga nakumpiskang ipinuslit na bigas papasok sa loob ng bansa, personal na sinampahan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ng kasong economic sabotage sa Office of the Ombudsman si dating Bureau of Customs (BOC) Chief Nicanor Faeldon.

Ang pagsasampa ng naturang kaso ay bunsod na rin ng mahigit P34 milyon na halaga ng bigas na una nang nasabat sa pantalan ng Cagayan De Oro City ngayong tayon dahil sa kakulangan ng import permits pero mahimalang naipalabas sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni Faeldon sa BOC.
