DSWD bank account created for SAF44 nixed

Feb. 02, 2015

A partylist representative said the solicitation initiated by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for the 44 Special Action Force killed in the Mamasapano encounter Gabriela Women’s Partylist was done “in bad taste”.

Gabriela Women’s Partylist representative Emmi De Jesus said “the government is already awash in billions of unprogrammed funds, earmarked savings, intelligence funds, and contingency funds hidden away in vague items that could be better donated to the suffering widows and bereaved SAF44 families instead of disappearing into Aquino’s electioneering war chest.”

De Jesus said the agency should clarify first the issues on its “questionable” poverty alleviation programs.
