Selective Justice: PHP 5 Billion NABCOR Fund Scam gathering dust *** Cases against Administration legislators ignored *** While PLUNDER charges were rushed against 3 opposition senators (Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla), the Department of Justice is dragging its feet on the PHP 5 Billion NABCOR Fund Scam involving cash for the 2007 midterm elections. At least 10 congressmen and congresswomen, then affiliated with the corrupt administration of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (but have now jumped over to the Liberal Party after Noynoy Aquino assumed the presidency in 2010) are alleged to have received MILLIONS of pesos for campaign money. The story has come back to life after President Aquino appointed Liberal Party member Janette Garin (former congresswomen of the first district of Iloilo) as Acting Secretary of the Department of Health when corruption charges were exposed in the health department vaccination program. Health Secretary Ona is still on forced leave and may not return to the DOH. Garin was mentioned by President Aquino as the next DOH Secretary during the 2013 midterm elections campaign period.
On the matter of the PHP 10 BILLION Napoles PDAF and DAP Pork Barrel Fund Scam, the Department of Justice is equally negligent in pursuing the second batch of senators implicated by the Napoles whistle blowers (led by Ben Hur Luy). Senators Bong Bong Marcos, Loren Legarda, Tito Sotto and Gringo Honasan have been pinpointed but have largely eluded public scrutiny and accountability because the investigation and prosecution arms of the government are sleeping on the job when Administration legislators are involved while quick on the draw regarding opposition stalwarts.
