Rivera claps back at Mayor Pacquiao: Nasaan ang liquidation ng P60M intel funds mo?

The camp of former General Santos City Mayor Ronnel Rivera on Friday turned the tables on Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao by demanding her to show proof of the proper accounting of the P60 million intelligence fund in 2023.

In a press release, the RCR Initiatives criticized the Pacquiao administration for alleged spreading falsehoods and baseless accusations, refuting allegations made by City Administrator Franklin Gacal that Rivera has failed to liquidate his cash advances amounting to P16 million, representing confidential funds during his term in 2013 and 2014.

Rivera has submitted to the City Accounting Office copies of transmittal letters of his liquidation report to the Commission on Audit.

“Asa man ang liquidation ninyo sa P60 milyones na intelligence funds sa 2023? Asa kini gigasto?,” the RCRI asked.

The group has also questioned how the budget of the Pacquiao’s Confidential and Intelligence Funds (CIF) dramatically ballooned to P80 million which is around P20 million more than its P60-million budget last year.

“Wala ni daku ang bantayanan nga luna sa syudad; naa lang gihapon ta sa 700k ka populasyon. Kung si Vice President Sarah Duterte nangayo ug 126M na intelligence funds para sa tibuok Pilipinas, ang 82M nga naa kay Mayor Pacquiao para lamang sa Gensan?,” it added.
