• Masbate official mum on ‘pork’ documents


    Masbate Governor Rizalina Seachon-Lanete did not confirm with the Commission on Audit (COA) whether or not it was she affixed her signature on the documents presented as evidence on charges she is facing with regards to the alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel. This was the testimony of Susan Garcia, COA Special Audit Office director and witness for the prosecution. COA earlier conducted a special audit on the use of PDAF allocation of lawmakers from 2007 to 2009. Lanete was a two-term representative in Masbate’s third congressional district. Lanete was charged early this year along with four other former lawmakers over alleged misuse of their pork barrel allocation.
