'Sen. Trillanes used his pork funds for ghost projects – Belgica group '

So this is what’s inside Senator Antonio trillanes IV’s Pandorax box?!

A report from the Philippine Daily Inquirer last September 2017, alleges a possible graft and corrupt case as against the number 1 critic of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

The Coalition for Investigation and Prosecution (CIP) led by former Manila councilor Greco Belgica has accused opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of misusing pork barrel funds he received during the previous administration of  Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

They have cited records from the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) ,the group with he Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption led by its founding chairman Dante Jimenez Trillanes has received a total of P245 million in DAP funds in three tranches (P100 million, P50 million and P95 million).

Based from the anti-pork barrel coalition said senator Trillanes donated P10million from his DAP funds to a a non-government organization that allegedly turned out to be a donor and not recipient of donations.

“He had so many ghost projects that we discovered,” Belgica said

The group has already turned over their pieces of evidence to the Department of Justice (DOJ) which conducting a reinvestigation on the matter with the help of its attached agency, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

“These (pieces of) evidence against Sen. Trillanes are enough to pursue cases against him. But we want the DOJ to further investigate and validate and it would be up to them if they would pursue separate cases against him,” he added.

Trillanes slams Belgica

Trillanes in an ambush interview , did not mind Belgica’s accusations.
“Isa pa yang si Belgica, may diperensya sa pag-iisip ‘yan. I don’t know why people keep on entertaining that,” the opposition senator said.

Trillanes then challenged Belgica to make his allegations formal and file it before the Office of the Ombudsman.

“Nakasama ko ‘yan noong 2013 sa campaign, medyo may ‘amats’ ‘yan. Pero sige, don’t take my word for it. Kung meron siya, eh ‘di i-file niya sa Ombudsman. Hinimay-himay na lahat ‘yan. You need a COA report para magkaroon ka ng ganyang allegations. Hindi ‘yan pwedeng presscon lang,” Trillanes said.
