Hontiveros calls out special audit for Duterte admin's COVID-19 spending : "Hindi dapat pinagkakakitaan ang krisis"

Opposition senator Rissa Hontiveros seems to be always in the news except in the current corruption allegations happening in the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation or better known as PhilHealth.
The senator is urging the government auditors to make an audit of the Duterte administration’s spending for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic under the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.

“Hindi dapat pinagkakakitaan ang COVID-19 crisis,” said Hontiveros.

Hontiveros together with other senators filed Senate Resolution No. 479, urging the Commission on Audit (COA) to conduct a special audit on all government spending related to Republic Act No. 11469 or the Bayanihan Act amid the socioeconomic impact brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Kailangan nating malaman kung ang tulong ba ay napunta para sa dapat tulungan,” Hontiveros said.
The opposition senator stressed that RA 11469 has allowed government to swiftly procure commodities, facilities, utilities and services deemed necessary for COVID-19 response with exemptions from the requirements of bidding as laid out in the Government Procurement Reform Act but various procurements made in relation to COVID-19 have been marred by allegations of corruption.

“Through the Bayanihan Act, gave the government comprehensive powers, including the power to re-align and allocate billions of taxpayers’ money to respond to the COVID-19 crisis,” said Hontiveros.
