Kailangan na ring mag-imbestiga ang Ombudsman sa maeskandalong pagkakabunyag sa โ€˜pork insertionsโ€™ ng mga kongresistang kadikit ng kasalukuyang pamunuan sa Mababang Kapulungan ng Kongreso.

Ito ang naging mensahe ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, makaraang inguso ni House Majority Leader Rolanda Andaya Jr. ang isang contractor na umanoโ€™y nakakopo na sa mga proyekto sa susunod na taon kahit hindi pa aprubado ang 2019 national budget.

Sa kanyang Twitter post, inihayag ni Lacson na puwede nang manghimasok ang Ombudsman, bukod pa sa maaring gawin ng Kongreso matapos ang pagbubunyag ni Andaya.

“Expose pa more! A single contractor bagging 30 flood control projects worth billions of pesos calls for a congressional inquiry/Ombudsman investigation. Thank God I found an unlikely ‘ally’ in Cong. Andaya,” saad ni Lacson.

With exposes on โ€œporkโ€ in the proposed P3.7-trillion budget for 2019 now coming out left and right, it may be time for new Ombudsman Samuel Martires to step into the picture.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said this Tuesday as he thanked an unlikely ally for revealing that a single contractor hogged no less 30 flood control projects worth billions of pesos.

Lacson said both the House of Representatives and the Office of the Ombudsman can conduct their own probes into the revelations.

โ€œExpose pa more! A single contractor bagging 30 flood control projects worth billions of pesos calls for a congressional inquiry/Ombudsman investigation. Thank God I found an unlikely โ€˜allyโ€™ in Cong. Andaya,โ€ Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.
