Lacson clears Mar Roxas of any corruption doing re Yolanda Funds

The May 2019 mid-term elections is just around the corner, with every advantage a candidate gets is big plus in his bid for a seat in any government office.
So an endorsement from a senator would always be welcome, and Mar Roxas just got that from sitting Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson.
Lacson endorsed the senatorial bid of Mar Roxas along with other reelectionist senators namely: Senators Cynthia Villar,Bam Aquino,  Grace Poe, Sonny Angara, Nancy Binay, JV Ejercito and Aquilino 'Koko' Pimentel III are vying for a fresh mandate.

But what caught the attention of the people is that Ping Lacson  cleared Mar Roxas of any corruption in the handling of the Yolanda funds.
"We would just like to correct that very wrong impression na si Sen. Roxas parang abused the funds," Lacson said.
"Huwag naman ibato sa kanya ang Yolanda funds because he never took advantage. There was no way for him to have that opportunity to take advantage," he said.
"Wala naman talaga siyang kinalaman sa pondo ng Yolanda except ang DILG [Department of Interior and Local Government] nag-provide ng cash assistance sa LGU and dumaan sa kaniya," he said.
Lacson during the previous administration of Noynoy Aquino was appointed rehabilitation czar and will head the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery (PARR)from December 2013 to December 2014.
