Filipino Taxpayers to Pay P3.4B to Maynilad & P7.4B to Manila Water for Breach of Water Contract


Ordinary Filipino taxpayers from different parts of the country will suffer from the case filed by two of the largest water operators in the country, Maynilad and Manila Water although we are not all consumers of their product.

According to some reports, at least P3.4 billion and P7.4 billion are the obligations of the Philippine government to be paid to private companies Maynilad and Manila Water respectively for alleged breach of contract by the Duterte administration.



Both Ayala and Pangilinan-led companies filed a case and won against the Philippine government after the Duterte administration failed to deliver their part in the so-called disadvantageous contract betweent the goverment and the water distribution companies.

The Duterte administration did not allow these companies to increase their water prices during the year 2015 to 2019.

Aside from the billions of pesos to be paid by the ordinary taxpayers to Maynilad and Manila Water, the international tribunal also ordered the Philippine government to pay them 100 percent of what they paid to the court and 85 percent of other costs.

Read the Complete Statement of Krizette Chu:

GALIT NA GALIT ANG PANGULO SA MANILA WATER because the government has just been ordered by an international tribunal to pay the company P7.4 billion.

Oo, tayo ang magbabayad sa kanila, a private company. Tayong mga taxpayers, hindi si Duterte. Tayo, who have been paying them to sell to us what should be a government owned service. Tayo, when we have suffered through many water crises.



The P7.4 billion is the amount MANILA WATER claims it lost from June 2015 to Nov 2019 because we didn’t approve of their price hike back then.

Maliban sa P7.4 billion, the international tribunal also ordered us to pay them 100 percent of what they paid to the court and 85 percent of other costs.

ASAN NA ANG MGA SENATORS AT SI VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO TO FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS?

Wala. Because the company owner is a sponsor for her projects.

Only Duterte—the man you hate—will go up against these people because he doesn’t owe these oligarchs anything.

Only Duterte is fighting against the oligarchy while you are all trained to blame China for everything, while our fellow “Filipinos” will make sure we are oppressed.
