Senate panel recommends multiple charges vs Lloyd Lao, Michael Yang, Pharmally execs

After more than 10 hearings, the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee recommended the filing of various criminal charges against Pharmally Pharmaceutical executives and government officials who had a hand in the allegedly anomalous and overpriced supply deal for medical equipment.

Committee chairman Sen. Dick Gordon announced Tuesday that the panel has recommended the filing of charges against President Rodrigo Duterte’s former economic adviser and Pharmally endorser Michael Yang, resigned Procurement Service head Atty. Lloyd Christopher Lao, and other whistleblowers.

Also identified for the charges are ex-Procurement Service director Warren Rex Liong, Pharmally president Twinkle Dargani, corporate secretary Mohit Dargani, director Linconn Ong, and whistleblower Krizle Grace Mago who took back what she said after a tell-all Senate testimony.

Estafa and perjury cases may also be filed against Pharmally Director Linconn Ong, who has been detained for flip-flopping or withholding information in his testimonies, Gordon said.
