Danilo Suarez lauds Ombudsman for filing graft charges vs Jun Abaya over MRT mess

Jul 13, 2018 @ 16:41

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez lauded the Office of the Ombudsman for indicting former Transportation Secretary Jun Abaya and 16 others over the P4.2-billion MRT maintenance mess.

The Quezon politiko called the Ombudsman’s decision to file graft charges Abaya “the first step towards the right direction.”

“These irregularities happened during the administration of former President Benigno Aquino III, who was not included in the indictment. I am optimistic that fair and impartial proceedings will be conducted,” Suarez said.

He also urged the Aquino administration to take full responsibility for the MRT mess.

“The commuting public has long suffered from the incompetent management of the MRT. The previous administration should take full responsibility should the findings of the Ombudsman be upheld. I also hope the current administration will learn from their predecessor to avoid committing the same mistake,” Suarez added.
