ZTE broadband deal

The House of Representatives will investigate the controversial National Broadband Network contract awarded to ZTE Corp. of China and will summon two Cabinet members on September 12.

Among those to be summoned are Secretaries Leandro Mendoza of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) and Peter Favila of the Department of Trade and Industry, said the minority leader, Rep. Ronaldo Zamora of San Juan at a news conference Monday. The secretaries are to appear during question hour that was scheduled by the House Committee of Rules.

Some of our colleagues from the minority will question the officials responsible in the approval of the contract, Zamora said, as he clarified that question hour will be different from a congressional inquiry.

Zamora could not tell yet however if Commission on Elections Chairman Benjamin Abalos will be summoned, too. His presence, according to Zamora, would depend on the weight of his involvement on the issue.

Once irregularities in the contract are established, Zamora said, charges will be filed against those involved.


Anyway, yesterday, Lacson said something about somebody else who is included in the deal. he mentioned something about a big and small person, which I think clearly describes who those two are. Im sure you also know who that is...

Yehey TOL - Simple' lang.
Scandals and more :p
