Nasesentro sa Department of Budget and Management Procurement Service (PS-DBM) ang malawakang pananamantala sa pondong pantugon sa COVID-19 pandemic na kinasasangkutan ng ilang grupo at personalidad.
Ito ang nakikitang dahilan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson para mas laliman pa ng Senate Blue Ribbon Committee ang ginagawa nitong imbestigasyon sa mga iregularidad ng Department of Health (DOH) at bigyan ng ibayong atensiyon ang papel na ginampanan ng PS-DBM.
“Maliwanag naman may tinutumbok tayo rito na large-scale corruption. What makes it worse, sa gitna ng pandemya, may kumikita,” banggit ni Lacson sa panayam ng DWIZ radio.
“At ang perang ito galing sa utang. Di ba magagalit ka?” dismayadong banggit pa ng mambabatas.
“Hindi natin dapat ito tatantanan!” diin ni Lacson.
The plot thickens on the large-scale corruption by some parties exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic – and the Department of Budget and Management Procurement Service (PS-DBM) is turning out to be a major player.
Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson thus stressed Saturday the need for the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee to dig deeper on the role of the PS-DBM as it continues to investigate irregularities at the Department of Health (DOH).
“Maliwanag naman may tinutumbok tayo rito na large-scale corruption. What makes it worse, sa gitna ng pandemya, may kumikita (It is clear that we are looking at large-scale corruption here. What makes it worse is that this is happening with some unscrupulous parties making gains for themselves right in the middle of a pandemic),” Lacson said in an interview on DWIZ radio.
“At ang perang ito galing sa utang. Di ba magagalit ka (Making matters even worse is that the money involved came from loans. Shouldn’t we taxpayers get angry over this)?” he added.
“Hindi natin dapat ito tatantanan (We should continue to pursue this to its logical conclusion)!” Lacson stressed.
