"Pangalanan Mo, Huwag Puro Press Release!" - Sen. Revilla

Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., yesterday dared former Senator Panfilo Lacson to name names the alleged 10 politicians who allegedly benefitted from the construction of substandard bunkhouses in typhoon affected Tacloban City.

Revilla said that it is better for Lacson to reveal to the public the identity of the 10 politicians who allegedly pocketed 30- to 35 percent that could have caused prices of the substandard bunkhouses.

Lacson who was currently appointed as presidential assistant for rehabilitation and recovery for the typhoon-ravaged areas has previously announced that he has in his possession the names of the politicians involved in the kickback.

The rehabilitation czar then said that the 10 politicians collected kickbacks from contractors that failed to follow the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) specifications for the construction of the structures of bunkhouses.

He did not reveal the names of the politicians but admitted that some of the involved individuals were from the administration while others were from the opposition.

" Dapat na pangalanan na niya (Lacson) ang mga involved. Hindi na ito ang panahon para itago pa ang pangalan nila at hayaan ang ganitong klase ng pandaraya. Kumbaga, biktima na, bibiktimahin pa", Revilla quoted.
