Casiño: Mayuga report failed
to account for P197-M funds

The Armed Forces of the Philippines  failed to fully account and liquidate the more than P197 million given to it by the Macapagal-Arroyo administration for the 2004 elections, documents from the Mayuga report revealed.

Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casino, thus  called  on the Commission on Audit to conduct a special audit on the said funds channelled to the AFP allegedly by the Commission on Elections through the joint COMELEC-AFP Task Force HOPE (Honest, Orderly, Peaceful Elections), a press release from Casiño’s office said.

 “First, we have to know why and how COMELEC gave the P197 million  to the AFP to spend in the 2004 elections and where the funds came from. We understand that so much money was changing hands at this time from several sources,” he said.
