Robredo: Pharmally scandal enabled by politikos in power
Vice President Leni Robredo said the multibillion-peso scandal involving shady medical supplier Pharmally Pharmaceutical could not have happened without aid from higher-ups in government.
The abogado said it appears that Pharmally’s ties to Malacañang empowered the company to bag big-time procurement deals for medical supplies.
“Hindi mangyayari itong Pharmally kung walang nakaupo na katulong,” Robredo said in her Sunday radio show.
“Hindi forgivable ang corruption at any stage, lalo na ngayong pandemic. Ang dami ng Pilipino ang naghihirap, iniisip pa nila ang delihensiya,” she added.
“Ang sinasabi kulang sa budget. Hindi pala totoo na walang pera,” Robredo. “May pera pero pinagkikitaan ng mga nakaupo.”
