Atty. Rivera Slams Lawmakers for Questioning a Law They Created Themselves

Veteran San Beda Lawyer and prominent supporter of Pres. Rody Duterte on social media, Atty. Bruce Villafuerte Rivera slammed all the lawmakers who questioned the controversial negotiated procurement of PPEs during the pandemic under the Duterte administration. 


According to Atty. Rivera he could not help but wonder why the senators reacted differently in the purchase of PPE during the pandemic as they claimed that those purchases were overpriced. 


On his mind, he is sure that there's a problem in the procurement law but they seems to have amnesia in aid of election. 

The San Beda lawyer urged the senators and lawmakers who questioned the Duterte administration, that before they will share their emotions as if they were victims, they should realize in the first place that they were behind the laws on the conditions of negotiated procurement. 


Read the Complete Statement of Atty. Rivera:

WHERE DID YOUR BRAIN GO?

Honestly, hindi ko maintindihan ang mga super makareact sa pagbili ng mga PPE nung pandemic. Kesyo mahal daw, kaya baka daw nanakaw, bakit daw hindi dinaan sa procurement. Sa isip ko, I am sure alam naman nila ang problema sa procurement law pero parang may amnesia ang mga maiingay na senador at congressman o in aid of election na naman.

Pwede ba, before kayo mag-emote na parang biktima, di ba kayo ang gumawa ng batas sa conditions on negotiated procurement di ba? Di ba nga, pag may national emergency or necessity di na idadaan sa normal process at negotiated procurement na?

Eh bakit parang shock na shock ang mga tumbong ninyo? Tinalbugan niyo pa ang acting ni Actor.


And ang mga nagreact, bilis niyo namang nakalimot na nung nasa posisyon din kayo, nangyari yung MRT deal na negotiated procurement na gawa ni Mar, etc. Ano ang emergency nun? Inubo lang si PNoy, emergency agad. Tapos na ang Yolanda nun. 

At ano ang epekto nung deal na yun?

Di ba nga, kinontrata nina Mar ang isang kumpanya  na mag-mamaintain sa MRT tapos wala palang kakayahan ang kinontrata ng bilyon bilyon. Kaya di ba nga, DOTr Sec Tugade had to cancel the contract and give back the job to Sumitomo. Bakit parang wala naman kayong reklamo dati? Walang nadeliver yun ha. Nag-aksaya tayo ng pera.

Tapos ngayon parang kayo ang nalugi??


Remember, totoong emergency ang pandemic. Kaya natural na negotiated procurement ang pagbili ng PPE. At siyempre, mas mahal talaga nung time na binili kasi buong mundo ang nangangailangan nun. Eh kung sana naisip niyo gumawa ng Dept of Disaster Management at hindi iasa sa NDRRMC ang pagplano sa mga ganito, nakapagstockpile na sana tayo ng PPE. Di ba nung SARS time pa marami na ang nagsasabi na we have to be proactive and not reactive sa ganito.

Pinakinggan niyo ba? Hindi. Kaya nga nung Yolanda, palpak pa din.

Do not blame the DoH, IATF, PRD or corruption in all of these.

1Truth be told, even with the best intentions of the implementor, this pandemic is so big for it to be fool proof especially if the law made by the very branch of government that has the temerity to complain admits of so many holes and fools.
