Group’s demand

Human rights and progressive groups demanded that lawmakers and other individuals implicated in the P10-bilion pork barrel scam based on the Commission on Audit (CoA) report and testimonies of the whistleblowers be jailed as thousands from various sectors gathered yesterday at the EDSA Shrine in support on the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).

Progressive organizations Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) said that senators and congressmen who connived with officials of the executive branch are guilty of systematic plunder and of perpetrating the TRAPO system that engenders patronage politics and political dynasties. (Chito Chavez)
