Pampanga, Catanduanes solons raring to start ‘laglag-bala’ probe

Nov 23, 2015 @ 9:17

Pampanga 3rd District Rep. Oscar Rodriguez said he is only awaiting the go-signal from the House leaders to start an investigation on the “laglag-bala” incidents at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Rodriguez chairs the House Committee on Good Government.

“The probe has yet to be scheduled. Once the resolutions are referred to us, we would immediately start the investigation,” the Pampanga lawmaker said in a Manila Bulletin story.

Catanduanes Rep. Cesar Sarmiento, chair of the committee on Transportation, also aired the same view, saying they are waiting for the House Committee on Rules’ approval to jumpstart the investigation.

The Rules Committee is headed by House Majority Leader and Mandaluyong Rep. Neptali “Boyet” Gonzales II.

Both Rodriguez and Sarmiento expressed readiness to conduct a full-blown probe on the bullet scam.

A total of nine resolutions have been filed by lawmakers calling for an inquiry into the issue.

“It is up to the Committee on Rules. The lead Committee I think would be the Good Government Committee,” Sarmiento said.
