PASAY CITY, Philippines — Paiimbestigahan ng Senate Committee on Finance at Blue Ribbon Committee.

ang umano’y P1.6 bilyong pisong unremitted fund ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) sa Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).

Ayon kay Senator Franklin Drilon, dahil sa nawawalang pondo, hindi makapag-avail ng GSIS premiums ang mga teacher sa ARMM dahil sa kabila ng kinakaltasan ang kanilang sweldo ay hindi naman ito inire-remit.

Suportado naman ni ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman ang sisimulang imbestigasyon ng senado kaugnay sa GSIS premiums na hindi ini-remit ng mga empleyado ng ARMM.

Ayon kay Hataman, kailangang malaman kung sino ang mga nasa likod nito at mabigyan mg kaukulang parusa.

“Mas gusto namin para din ma-correct yung perception about ARMM at malaman natin saan nagsimula at sino ang nagpasimula nito.”

Sinabi pa ni Governor Hataman na tuloy- tuloy din ang ginagawa nilang paglilinis sa mga ghost employee sa kanilang rehiyon. (Mon Jocson/Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines — The Bicameral Conference Committee on Wednesday (December 15) approved the Php5.024 trillion 2022 proposed national budget.

The Lower and Upper Houses of Congress are expected to ratify the budget in the plenary anytime within the last session day before the holiday break.

Following Congress ratification of the proposed budget is the submission of the same to President Rodrigo Duterte for his signature on or before December 25.

Senate Committee on Finance chairperson Senator Sonny Angara said that in the approved Bicameral Conference Committee report, they have adjusted the budget of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF ELCAC), the Department of Health (DOH), and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

“I think, we restored the [NTF] ELCAC to the 16 or 16.5 billion-peso level which is the 2021 level. Yung DOH, I think, it’s up by, at least, 20 to 30 billion pesos over what the President submitted because maraming kulang doon,” Angara said.

“So nandoon yung sa risk allowance, I think, dinagdagan namin yung sa boosters. Tapos sa testing meron din doon. Tapos sa DOLE naglagay rin tayo ng testing for yung  naghahanap ng trabaho. Nakatutok na rin tayo sa economic recovery natin,” he added.

Angara further said the Bicam also included in the budget funding for COVID-19 vaccines estimated at 45 to 50 billion pesos as part of the government’s efforts in fighting the deadly disease as the country is gradually opening its economy. —/mbmf (with details from Nel Maribojoc)

Maris Federez   •   November 29, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corporation executives Linconn Ong and Mohit Dargani went through a medical check-up before their transfer to the Pasay City Jail Monday (November 29).

A statement released by the Senate Public Relations and Information Bureau (PRIB) to reporters said the two Pharmally executives underwent the medical check-up, including an antigen test for COVID-19, inside the Senate premises.

The Senate Blue Ribbon Committee ordered Dargani and Ong’s transfer to the Pasay City Jail for their failure to provide the documents needed by the panel.

The documents will be used in the Blue Ribbon’s probe on the alleged anomalies in the purchase of personal protective equipment and other medical supplies related to the fight against COVID-19.

“In the commitment order signed Saturday, November 27, by Senate President Vicente Sotto III and Sen. Richard Gordon, Blue Ribbon Committee chairman, Ong and Dargani would remain in jail ‘until such time that they will properly answer questions propounded to them, submit documents required by the committee or otherwise purge themselves of a contempt order imposed against them’,” the Senate said. —/mbmf
