NOW THAT BROADBAND IS DEAD, THOROUGH AUTOPSY IS NEEDED.

LACSON IS RIGHT, THE ARROYO GOVERNMENT IS SCAMPERING TO PUT OUT THE FIRES CAUSED BY THE BROADBAND SCANDAL. THE DOJ IS TRYING TO PUT A STOP TO IT, ABALOS IS TRYING TO GET OUT OF IMPEACHMENT AND CRIMINALS CHARGES, AND MIKE ARROYO'S DAUGHTER IS EVEN ACTING LIKE A PUBLIC OFFICIAL ORDERING HER FATHER TO SHOW CONTEMPT OVER THE REQUEST TO ATTEND A CONGRESSIONAL INQUIRY.
WITH ALL THESE COMMOTION TAKING PLACE, IT'S VERY OBVIOUS THAT GLORIA'S CAGE IS GETTING RATTLED AND SHE IS GETTING TOO NERVOUS TO EVEN POSE FOR A PHOTO OP. SHE CAN ONLY BLAME HERSELF AND HER POLITICAL ALLIES FOR THIS DESTABILIZING EFFECT ON HER GOVERNMENT BECAUSE IT WAS SHE WHO CONDONED THE CORRUPTION OF HER GRUNTS AND HUSBAND.
HOWEVER, THE INVESTIGATION IS FAR FROM OVER BECAUSE THIS MULTIMILLION DOLLAR SCAM SHOULD SERVE AS A MODEL FOR THE FUTURE BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS IN EVERY GOVERNMENT PROJECT AND NEW LEGISLATIONS MUST BE ENACTED TO PLUG THE LOOPHOLES AND FORCE THOSE WHO WOULD TRY TO CORRUPT THE SYSTEM TO KEEP THEIR HANDS OFF THE MONEY POT THAT THEY ARE SO USED TO STEAL FROM.
Lacson wants 'thorough' autopsy of NBN deal at Senate
MANILA, Philippines--Senator Panfilo Lacson on Thursday called for a “thorough” autopsy of the “dead” $329-million National Broadband Network (NBN) deal with China's ZTE Corp.
This, after Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, chairman of the Senate committee on accountability of public officers and investigations (the blue ribbon), said there would be a 10- to 14-day wait before the next Senate hearing on the cancelled contract.
“Given that the ZTE contract is dead, it deserves a thorough autopsy. It is not correct to say that the hearings have become useless and long-winded,” Lacson said, rejecting one of Cayetano's explanations for the delay.
Cayetano had said that with the break, many senators will be out of town, if not out of the country, and would be unable to attend the hearings.
He had also said the break would allow the staff of the Senate blue-ribbon committee to assess the documents that were required but not submitted by the executive branch.
Citing Senate rules that allow the convening of and the call for a committee meeting if a third of the committee members are present, Lacson said he and other members of the Senate blue-ribbon committee who would stay on during congressional four-week break could and would convene a hearing on the cancelled contract with ZTE Corp.
“We should not allow ourselves to be held hostage by whatever agenda and personal reasons of the chairman for not convening the committee for a hearing on the ZTE scam,” Lacson said.
“We would betray public interest if hearings were stopped in the midst of Malacañang and its Senate allies' efforts to control the damage and gravity of the offenses committed in this NBN transaction,” he added.
