A P-Noy ally has been slapped with a plunder case
DAP-related problems hound Butch Abad
(SPOT.ph) First, we must remember that a case is just a case. Many have been filed, but few have been resolved, so the effect of someone facing a plunder case isn't really all that awe-inspiring. However, this one seems to matter—in light of the recent accusations by the opposition that justice has skipped a few bad eggs because they're on the right side of the carton. We mean to say that they're chums with the administration.
The latest official to be served by the Office of the Ombudsman is none other than Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Butch Abad. Former Philippine Constitutional Association (Philconsa) President Bonifacio Alentajan has filed a plunder case against the Budget Secretary for releasing P50 million for each senator who voted for the conviction of former Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Alentajan cited Senator Jinggoy Estrada's privilege speech from 2013 about the "incentives" given to the senators, which Estrada said was "not a bribe." Next, we wait for something to happen with the case!
