Duterte hints big law firm behind onerous water deals

Ever wandered who could have drafted or even suggested such disadvantageous provisions in the water concession agreements between a private corporation as against to the detriment of the Philippine government.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte seems to have an answer to this question when in an speaking engagement with the newly elected Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) Board of Trustees, he hinted that a big law firm could be behind the “onerous” contracts between the government and water concessionaires.

“Lahat violation ng contract but I have to include all the government lawyers who did that. Now, sino yung nagturo sa mga abugado sa gobyerno kasi ngayon yung mga maliliit na lang nagsabi na retired naman kami ganun ganun. But sino nagplano niyan?” Duterte said

“Ang nagplano nyan malaking opisina na law firm. They are the only ones who could do that. Government lawyers would never attempt even,” Duterte said.
Duterte said the following after he renews his desire to jail those people who are responsible for such deals with Maynilad and Manila Water which supposedly milked billions of pesos from the people and the government through the water deals.

The president also expressed readiness to talk to new investors, but said he would instead let his economic managers speak to them.

“Of course, may bagong mga negosyante. They will infuse, I do not know for whatever the reason. While I am ready, not me, but yung ano economic managers ko na lang,” Duterte said.
