Fariñas can Fake Gov. Marcos’ Document in Congress but still Not a Corruption Case

Congress





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The House of Representatives or the lower House of Congress insists on continuing to detain the six Ilocos Norte officials. This is even if the writ of habeas corpus from the Court of Appeals was secured. House Majority Leader Rodolfo C. Fariñas presses on the resource persons to tell the truth. Is implicating Gov. Imee Marcos the truth for Fariñas?

Diversion of Funds?

Although it is unconstitutional to divert funds to another purpose, Marcos’ case here can be similar to Pnoy’s DAP case if the photocopy of the evidence is indeed genuine. It was justified in the Ombudsman that the former President was not guilty of corruption because the money was not pocketed. It’s just a mere mishandling of the process which made Abad liable for it.




Congress Allegation

Marcos faces controversy over the alleged diversion of P66.45 million in public funds from Ilocos Norte’s share of excise tax collections on cigarettes. The money was allegedly used to fund motor vehicles without public bidding. One of the detained officials however attested that there was bidding but Fariñas doubts that.




What is the Truth?

It is clear that Fariñas wants to prove that Marcos deliberately ordered the diversion of funds to implicate her. Nevertheless, it is also very obvious that the six officials are very careful not to give him the satisfaction that he aims for. Since the original document is non-existent, it is also possible that the tobacco funds are not misused. Marcos can also accuse Fariñas of faking the said evidence. Time can only tell.









Will Gov. Imee Marcos Show Up?

House committee on good government and public accountability chairperson Representative Johnny Pimentel warns Governor Marcos that she will be cited for contempt if she fails to attend the hearing on July 25. They even threaten to do a “Dayan” for Marcos. He was the ex-boyfriend of Senator Leila de Lima who at first did not show up on hearings. Will they have the same luck with Marcos?

Cruel Detention

Bongbong Marcos thinks that it is cruel and unusual to detain six employees of the Ilocos Norte government after House officials did not like their answers. Marcos. He visited them at the House Legislative Building. They are already in detention for 17 days now.




Fuzz over the Original

Ex-Ilocos Norte Governor and Representative Rodolfo Fariñas cited the officials in contempt after they asked for the original copies of his alleged digital proof that they have signed the cash advance from the tobacco funds for the purchase of some vehicles for barangay use.

Congress vs CA

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez called the justices behind the ruling ignorant of the law. He is known as a brave supporter of the president but obviously, he’s not for the Marcoses. The neck to neck power struggle is evident in the fight between the two equal branches of the government.









Unusual Occurrence

Marcos finds out that the employees are unable to rest well where they are now. He stressed that there’s no point to continue to detain them because that can’t change their answers to House officials.
