Ping: Tantanan Muna Katiwalian, Bangayan Kahit Ngayong Pandemya Lang

Bunga ng kinakaharap na ga-bundok na problema ng bansa na lumala pa dahil sa pandemya, nananawagan si Senador Panfilo Lacson ng kahit na pansamantalang pagkalma sa katiwalian sa pamahalaan at bangayan ng nagbabanggaang grupong pulitikal.

Ayon sa mambabatas, hindi pa malinaw ang hinaharap at kinakailangan na isipin ng lahat na Pilipino ang kapakanan ng bayan at kalimutan na muna, lalo na ng mga mapagsamantala, ang pagpapalago ng sariling bulsa.

“All of us Filipinos should think of the national interest and unite to promote it. Those Filipinos engaging in corruption now, especially those wanting to make dishonest money from COVID, are not exempt from this,” banggit ni Lacson.

Una nang pumasok ang mga impormasyon sa tanggapan ng mambabatas hinggil sa korapsiyon sa pagbili at suplay ng testing kits at mga makina, face masks, face shields, personal protective equipment (PPE) at mga kahalintulad na kagamitan sa pagtukoy at proteksiyon laban sa COVID-19.

Lacson to Corrupt, Bickering: Think of National Interest, Give Us a Break!

With the myriad of problems the country is facing made worse by the pandemic, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson on Monday called for a much-needed and long-overdue break from corruption and bickering.

Lacson said no one – especially those who continue to engage in corruption to profit from the pandemic – should be exempted from putting national interest above personal aggrandizement.

“All of us Filipinos should think of the national interest and unite to promote it. Those Filipinos engaging in corruption now, especially those wanting to make dishonest money from COVID, are not exempt from this,” Lacson said as he cited information reaching him involving corruption in the procurement and supply of testing kits and machines, face masks, face shields, personal protective equipment (PPE) and similar items.

“Can they at least forget about their greed during the pandemic? I am not saying they can resume their corrupt ways once the pandemic is over, but especially during this period when we face so many problems, they should pause if they cannot stop,” he added in an interview on Eagle News.
