The call to investigate irregularities and possible corruption on the construction of sports facilities for the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games is about accountability of the government officials involved. IT DOES NOT INVOLVE OUR ATHLETES.

Napakasimple ng issue. May katiwalian at irregularidad bang naganap sa pagsasagawa at pagsasaayos ng ating mga sports stadium na ginamit para sa SEA Games? Sabi ng Office of the Government Corporate Counsel (OGCC), meron. Sabi ng Commission on Audit (COA), meron. Bakit pipigilan ang imbestigasyon sa Senado para malaman kung sino ang sangkot at kung paano aayusin ang batas para maiwasan ang ganitong korapsyon?

Ang dapat protektahan ng ating Senado ay ang mga Atletang Pilipino at ang pera ng taumbayan, hindi ang kung sinong pulitiko.

We are accountable to our athletes and our countrymen to see to it that our resources are properly spent in accordance with law. I call on my colleagues at the Senate to perform our mandate and proceed with this investigation, as pushed by Sen. Risa Hontiveros in a Privilege Speech, and likewise the subject of an earlier Resolution of mine, P.S. Res. No. 555.
