Despite apology, Duterte will still pursue raps vs Ayalas, Pangilinan over ‘onerous’ water deals

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in his late Monday night public address apologized to the Ayalas and Pangilinan for his “hurting words.”

Duterte said that COVID-19 is a humbling experience that he is thankful for the two businessmen for helping the government for providing the immediate necessities that is needed.

And the President said they can talk and he would be reasonable but it did not say the two will be off the hook in any of the possible cases the government will find against them.

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque said the government will still pursue the cases against Manila Water and Maynilad’s owners in connection with the onerous concession agreements signed in 1997.

“Sabi naman po niya (Duterte) puwedeng magusap sa mga issues between these companies and the government. I think that’s an indication na kung pupuwedeng out of court settlement, he will explore out of court settlement,” Roque also said.
“Pero yung mga issues na nilabas ng ating presidente lalong-lalo na sa water concessions remain. Siguro po yung pag-uusap eh dun sa kung paapano babaguhin ang concession agreement ng dalawang kumpanya na nagbibigay ng tubig sa atin,” he added.
