I WOULD like to correct erroneous information appearing in a column today (“Be careful with ‘review’ of LRTA contract,” Rough Trade, Ben Kritz, The Manila Times, Jan. 21, 2020) that identified me as a shareholder of the Metro Pacific Investment Corp. (MPIC). (https://www.manilatimes.net/2020/01/21/business/columnists-business/be-careful-with-review-of-lrta-contract/676162/)
I am not a shareholder of the company or in any way connected to it.
Imputations in the said piece that I have made “fantastic amounts of money,” being supposedly part of the company, are not true.
We hope the public will be made aware of the factual error.
