Ex-Manila councilor files more raps vs. Noy over DAP mess
Former Manila councilor and now anti-corruption head Greco Belgica on Thursday submitted more evidence against former president Benigno Aquino III and former government officials implicated in the alleged multi-billion wastage of Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).
Belgica, commissioner of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commissioner, along with several anti-pork barrel groups, submitted the evidence before the Department of Justice.
He claimed that their new evidence would clearly indicate that the Aquino administration and several lawmakers have colluded in DAP’s misuse, and one such proof was a memorandum signed and released by former budget secretary Florencio Abad.
“These documents would prove the magic of DAP – that in one day (Oct. 12, 2011) DAP was presented to the Senate, signed by PNoy (Aquino) and printed out in the official gazette and DBM (Department of Budget and Management) website,” Belgica told reporters.
“This is a clear conspiracy of Aquino, (former budget secretary Florencio) Abad, (former interior secretary Mar) Roxas, (former transportation secretary Joseph Emilio) Abaya, (senators Franklin) Drilon, (Antonio) Trillanes and (Francis) Pangilinan,” he alleged.
Belgica urged Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II to expedite the investigation
The DoJ has already created a fact-finding team led by Justice Undersecretary Antonio Kho Jr.
