Press statement of Sen. Chiz Escudero on the misuse
of donations for victims of calamities

Sen. Chiz on the P5.6M misused COA, P193.6M in donations for victims of various typhoons from 2004 to 2010 sleeping in the bank: This is a crying shame! Misuse of donations for victims of calamities should be considered a heinous crime. It is not simple misappropriation, malversation or corruption when money intended for calamity victims are misused given that such help will decide whether a person may live or die. To gamble and take advantage of money intended to help save lives is a higher level of betrayal that to my mind should be meted the highest penalty.
