GRACE POE ON FILING OF CHARGES AGAINST FORMER ADMIN OFFICIALS

As I have previously mentioned, we should let the ax fall where it should. I believe the DOTr has exercised due diligence in reviewing the issues with BURI, strong enough to come up with a case against those involved.

The Senate investigation that we conducted revealed that the award to BURI was anomalous and disadvantageous to the public. The poor maintenance service and the daily technical glitches have resulted in fewer functioning coaches and long passenger queues. There were individuals who appeared to have favored an incompetent maintenance provider and in mismanaging the train system. They should see this as an opportunity for them to clear their names.

We expect that the Ombudsman will act expeditiously on the case, because every day of delay means distress and hardship for our riding public. We can only achieve justice for our people by making those responsible for their woes accountable.
