[VIDEO]: Gov. Marcos explains that they can only resort to direct contracting because there’s only one supplier based on the specified request.
Direct Contracting is Legal
Gov. Marcos maintained her stand that the direct contracting followed the legal process as evaluated by COA. There may be some processes that were not followed but the truth is firmly brought out no matter how the Congress Representatives grilled her that there’s definitely no corruption in the said transaction.
Lifting of the Contempt Order
Majority leader Rudy Fariñas moved for the lifting of the contempt order and for the issuance of the release order of the six officials. He clarified his move by saying that the officials admitted during the hearing that it was their signatures on pertinent disbursement vouchers and other documents.
Never Mind the Humiliation, Freedom Matters
The House committee chairperson Surigao Del Sur Rep. Johnny Pimentel approved Fariñas’ motion. The audience applauded. Ilocos Norther Gov. Imee Marcos said that she is happy that her employees can finally go home to their families after 55 days in detention.
