Pangilinan: Duque untouchable na kurakot

Kabilang si Health Secretary Francisco Duque sa listahan ni Senador Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan sa mga ‘corrupt and incompetent untouchables’ na government official.

“Duque being unpunished is no longer surprising,” pahayag ni Pangilinan sa kanyang mensahe sa mga reporter.

Ayon sa senador, kasama na si Duque sa liga sina dating Bureau of Customs (BOC) and Bureau of Corrections chief Nicanor Faeldon, ex-BOC commissioner Isidro Lapeña, dating National Food Authority chief Jason Aquino at dating Philippine National Police chief Oscar Albayalde, na pawang mga na sangkot sa mga iregularidad.

“And now, Duque in PhilHealth. The list of corrupt and incompetent untouchables under this Administration is getting longer,” sabi ni Pangilinan.

“Condoning corruption, illegality and incompetence will only lead to more corruption and incompetence,” dagdag pa nito.

Samantala, pinasalamatan naman ni Senador Sonny Angara ang Pangulo at ang DOJ-led task force dahil sa mabilis na aksyon sa anomalya sa PhilHealth.

“We hope the law enforcement and prosecutorial arms of the government take over and move these cases forward to exact accountability from those involved,” sabi ni Angara.

“Both the legislative and executive branches of government have found reason to go after these individuals. Hopefully the other agencies of government can now act with the same sense of urgency here,” dagdag nito.
