Priorities? Marinduque Rep. Allan Velasco attends Senate probe on frigate deal
It’s no secret that Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco is considered a friend and ally of President Duterte and his right hand man, Christopher “Bong” Go.
Velasco joined the other cabinet members at the Senate’s probe of the Navy’s frigate acquisition program, who were there to lend support to Go.
Go had been accused of intervening in the program after the letter of a Korean combat management system supplier was given to the Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana in Malacanang. Go’s office later set up a meeting with defense officials to discuss the CMS acquisition.
Velasco posted about his attendance at the Senate probe on Instagram.
Maybe things are not so busy at the House of Representatives?
“Presently waiting for the senate hearing to start on the frigate deal👍🏼 #senate,” Velasco posted.
