MANILA, Philippines — Senators expressed concern yesterday over the safety of Pharmally executive Krizle Mago who has gone incommunicado since giving a damning testimony against her firm during Senate investigative hearings on billions of pesos worth of COVID-19 supply contracts.
“We are concerned for her safety after what she confirmed to us during last Friday’s hearing,” said Sen. Richard Gordon, chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon committee, whose staff could no longer reach her after offering her protection that night.
“We offered her protection. After attempts to get her exact location so we could send our Senate sergeant-at-arms, she can no longer be reached,” Gordon said.
During the Senate hearing, Mago had confirmed the exposé of Sen. Risa Hontiveros that face shields delivered to the Department of Health (DOH) had tampered certification labels.
Hontiveros had a video-recorded testimony from a former warehouse worker that Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corp. owners ordered the tampering of certification labels of old and creased face shields last August to make it appear they were manufactured only this year.
