Greco Belgica's Group Accuses Trillanes of Misusing Pork Barrel Funds During the Aquino Admin


Senatorial candidate and PDAF lawyer who leads the Coalition for Investigation and Prosecution, Greco Belgica accused controversial Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for misusing pork barrel funds he received during the Aquino administration.



The group headed by Belgica together with the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) led by its founding Chairman Dante Jimenez stated that Sen. Trillanes has received a total of P245 million in DAP funds in three tranches (P100 million, P50 million and P995 million) based on the records of the Department of Budget and Management.

Greco Belgica's anti-pork barrel coalition said that the senator donated P10 million from his DAP funds to a non-government organization that allegedly turned out to be a donor and not recipient of donations.

The former Manila Councilor, Greco Belgica told reporters that "He had so many ghost projects that we discovered," Belgica stated.

Belgica's group, Coalition for Investigation and Prosecution said they have already turned over the evidence to the Department of Justice (DOJ) which is now conducting a reinvestigation on the matter through its attached agency, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

“These (pieces of) evidence against Sen. Trillanes are enough to pursue cases against him. But we want the DOJ to further investigate and validate and it would be up to them if they would pursue separate cases against him,” he added.

When asked for reactions about the controversy, Sen. Trillanes, scoffed at Greco Belgica's accusations. Trillanes was quoted as saying "Isa pa yang si Belgica, may diperensya sa pag-iisip ‘yan. I don’t know why people keep on entertaining that,” the senator said.

He then challenged Belgica to make formal his allegations and file it before the Ombudsman and also tagged Belgica as "may amats."
