Where are the Originals?
It was a painful scene in the hearing when Farinas’ grilled each of the 6 Ilocos Norte officials as to where the original documents of the cash advance from the tobacco excise funds used to buy the farmers’ vehicles were. Since Farinas has their copies, it is logical to think that he should know where the originals were.
The original documents were missing during the House inquiry into Ilocos Norte’s tobacco fund use last May 29. Lawmakers ordered the House arrest and detention of the treasurer and five other employees of the Ilocos Norte government for asking where the originals were because they cannot answer their questions accurately without those as a reference because the transaction happened many years ago.
Cynthia Gorospe, however, is in denial. She said that she did not steal the documents. That she only requested a photocopy of the vouchers in 2013 because of a personal grudge against a coworker, Genedine Jambaro. It turns out that she envies the latter’s lifestyle. The public can easily judge on this.
The Congress is now perceived as a House of Horror just because of some abusive congressmen. They detained the Ilocos 6 indefinitely and threatened Gov. Imee Marcos with Contempt Citation with a matching detention room. Bongbong Marcos said that their actions are indeed cruel. Now that this scenario emerged, it is far crueler than people might think.
