Lacson castigate Duterte for clearing Alan ahead of probe

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson twitted President Rodrigo Roa Duterte for basically absolving government officials led by House Speaker Peter Allan Cayetano who happens to be heading also the Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc) for being the culprits behind the alleged massive foul ups in the country’s staging of the 30th South East Asian Games.

Critics of the administration questions the President anti-corruption policy when he said that Cayetano was “ not involved in corruption” even before any formal investigation could begin.

“When it comes to his close allies, the President [regards] them as ‘lily-white driven snow’ who are infallible and incorruptible. And we all know that’s not accurate,” Lacson told mediamen.

“When his allies are involved, there’s no hint of corruption. We all know that’s not true. [It’s as if] there’s no need for an investigation because they are incorruptible,” he said.
“While his opinion matters because he is the President of the Republic, we know he is not always correct, with a poor batting average in this regard,” Lacson said in a Twitter post.
Lacson was asked if he was referring to current House Speaker and hid former colleague in the Senate Allan Peter Cayetano, Lacson replied: “No, not Speaker Cayetano. [I was referring] to those who had a problem in the past like (Nicanor) Faeldon.”

“He was involved in corruption twice already, in BuCor and BOC. And yet there’s no investigation being conducted by the executive branch because the President has spoken. He believes so much in Faeldon that he’s not corrupt,” Lacson said.
