Senate orders arrest of Dargani siblings for refusing to present Pharmally documents

Senators have ordered more Pharmally Pharmaceutical executives detained for not cooperating with the long-stretching probe on reportedly anomalous government supply deals.

During Tuesday’s Senate Blue Ribbon Committee hearing, Senator and abogado Franklin Drilon asked the committee’s permission to have Pharmally president Twinkle Dargani and corporate secretary Mohit Dargani detained for failing to comply with a subpoena of Pharmally documents.

“I don’t think anybody in the committee will object to that,” committee chair Sen. Dick Gordon said.

The documents being sought by the panel would expose the various supply contracts and fulfilled transactions between Pharmally and the national government, which involve multibillion pesos in medical supplies like face masks and face shields delivered at the onset of the pandemic. These were reportedly substandard and some, expired.
