[VIDEO]: Senator Sotto said that PBBM is bothered about the irregularities in the Department of Agriculture
Rice Trading Corruption
Rice trading corruption is happening in the country. This has a strong influence on the Bureau of Customs. Senator Tito Sotto is certain about this based on their investigations in the senate. This is why he’s positive that the incoming president Bongbong Marcos is handling the Department of Agriculture himself for the time being.
List of Corrupt Officials
PBBM already has the list of possibly corrupt officials from the senate. There seems to be connivance between the Department of Agriculture and Customs. Trading rice overseas is in the form of smuggling. Not proper exports. Even the imports are questionable too.
He was disgusted with what he was hearing, Sotto said. He’s shaking his head in disbelief. Anomalies definitely loom in the area. This is why the senator appreciates that PBBM volunteers himself to oversee the department immediately. Excellent decision, he added. A big warning to the corrupt ones indeed. This means the new president is dead serious about his promise to lower the cost of rice at the soonest possible time.
