P332-B under Diokno stolen via ghost flood control projects

Clearly a “flood control scam,” lawmakers said of the allocation by the Department of Budget and Management under Benjamin Diokno of P332 billion for non-existent flood control projects in a short span of three years.

This was among the initial observations raised by the House rules committee, based on “research” made by House Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr.’s team.

“First of all, it is Secretary Diokno – and not President Duterte or DPWH Secretary Mark Villar – who is really behind the insertions for the budget,” he said in a power point presentation at the Avenue Plaza Hotel in Naga where the public hearing was held.
