One of the country's neophyte lawmaker, Senator Manny Pacquiao threatened yesterday to issue an Order to Arrest Nelson Ti, said to be a close friend of former Pres. Noynoy Aquino's brother-in-law.


The suggestions of Sen. Pacquiao came out after Nelson Ti, continues to snub the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee hearing on the P8.7-Billion Road Right of Way (RRoW) scam in General Santos City.



The eight-division world boxing champion, Sen. Pacquiao, who filed the resolution that prompted the Blue Ribbon Committee inquiry, stressed that Ti has been invited several times and, in fact, was issued a subpoena but he continued to ignore the Philippine Senate.

Based on reports presented by Tribune.Net.Ph, Nelson Ti is a close friend of Eldon Cruz and wife Ballsy Aquino-Cruz based on field investigations that the committee held in relation to the RRoW probe.

When Sen. Pacquiao was asked by Tribune if he is considering the arrest of Nelson Ti, the senator replied by saying "Definitely," adding "he has to answer some questions that need to be clarified regarding this issue, in aid of legislation."

"We have already subpoenaed him several times, he said. The committee is set to conduct another hearing next week.



The resolution of Sen. Pacquiao, Senate Resolution 561 prompted the inquiry now being conducted by blue ribbon panel headed by Sen. Richard Gordon.

The controversial RRoW scam in General Santos involved two former Cabinet Secretaries of Noynoy Aquino were implicated in the anomaly who are former Public Works and Highways Secrtary Rogelio Singson and ex-Budget Secretary Florencio Abad. The scam involved the manufacture of bogus land titles that are used to collect RRoW compensation from government.

Whistle-blower Roberto Catapang Jr. mentioned Ti in his affidavit, along with Wilma Mamburam, a certain Col. Chino Mamburan and Merceditas Dumlao who were also named among those involved in the P8.7-billion scam.
