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


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.
