Ex Pres Aquino, ex DBM Sec Abad given 10 days to answer graft complaint

MANILA September 27, 2016 (Bicol Standard) -- Former President Benigno C. Aquino III and former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad were given 10 days from receipt of the order, issued last September 5, to file their counter-affidavits regarding the graft complaint filed by the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan.


Bayan Secretary General Renato Reyes Jr. said that he welcomed the order issued by the Office of the Ombudsman for the two former officials to submit their counter affidavits to the complaint filed early July for the alleged illegal use of public funds or property, usurpation of legislative powers and violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. The major issue in this complaint involves the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP).

Listed as complainants in this case are: Bayan, Bayan Muna party-list, Alliance of Concerned Teachers, the government union COURAGE, the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption, Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas, Gabriela, Philippine Heart Center Employees Association-Alliance of Health Workers and actress and social media activist Mae Paner.
