THE Senate minority bloc has rejected the Senate blue ribbon committee (BRC) report on its probe of the sugar import fiasco as it disagreed with the panel’s findings clearing Executive Secretary Victor Rodriguez in the scandal.Senate Minority Leader Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel 3rd and Sen. Ana Theresia “Risa” Hontiveros on Tuesday released their own report on the investigation of the allegedly questionable importation of 300,000 metric tons of sugar under Sugar Order 4 (SO 4).In a press briefing, the two senators said Rodriguez “was not entirely blameless in the sugar importation mess.”The minority bloc report raised the “silence” of the blue ribbon panel, led by Sen. Francis Tolentino, on the accountability of Rodriguez.
“It was clear to us early on that all communications related to the issuance of SO 4 were timely and clearly communicated to the executive secretary. However, the executive secretary’s unilateral decision to sit on it contributed to the debacle,” Hontiveros said
