Bayan Muna questions Duterte’s ‘defensive’ mood re use of his intel funds



Bayan Muna party-list representative has questioned President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s defensive attitude whenever asked about the idea of diverting his P4.5 billion intelligence and confidential funds to the government’s war chest against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease, that can be used for the social amelioration program that is currently not enough to cover all that is needed to be given.

Ferdinand Gaite,a Bayan Muna party-list representative has reiterated from his colleagues to call out the President’s to let go his “presidential pork” – his “intelligence funds.”


“The President seems to be very defensive with regards to Bayan Muna’s call to utilize the President’s Confidential and Intelligence Funds (CIFs), his Pork Barrel,” Gaite said in a statement.

“But we would continue to insist, put the P4.5-billion confidential and intel funds to better use. Don’t be too possessive, let it go,” he added.

Duterte in his latest public briefing he slammed Bayan Muna representative Carlos Zarate, the later insists on using the money allotted for the President’s intelligence fund. In the same instance the President said that the said fund has not been transferred to his office yet.

Duterte shares his frustrations in the implementation of measures that can benefit the country in a much faster pace because of the democracy in the Philippines, and due to criticisms from the human rights sector.


“Dito hindi ko magawa ‘yan kasi demokrasya, papasok ang human rights, nandiyan sila Diokno, mas marunong sa — lahat na, mga human rights, sa mga left. Kagaya nito ni Zarate, daldal ng daldal ng intelligence fund na wala hangin,” the Presdient said.
