PGMA tells DOTC Chief Mendoza: Shed light on NBN deal before SC

Manila (18 September) -- Citing the integrity and fortitude of the highest court in the land to come up with fair and unbiased decisions, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo directed today Transportation and Communications Secretary Leandro Mendoza to appear before the Supreme Court and explain the $329-million National Broadband Network (NBN) deal between the government and ZTE Corp. of China.

In a statement read before convening the Cabinet-National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board meeting in Malacaņang this morning, the President said an SC decision will finally put to rest all controversies hounding the contract.

"Iniaatas ko kay Secretary Mendoza ng DOTC na humarap at magpaliwanag sa Korte Suprema hinggil sa kaso ng National Broadband Network. Walang pamumulitika at batay sa ebidensiya ang mga proseso ng hukuman. Doon matitimbang nang wasto kung ayon sa batas at kapakanan ng bayan ang kasunduan," the President said.

"Sa demokrasya, natural lang ang magkatalong pananaw at posisyon. Ang mahalaga, may mga hukuman at proseso ng batas upang mag-desisyon sa anumang di pagkakasundo sa payapang paraan ayon sa hustisya at ebidensiya nang walang pamumulitika," she added. (OPS) [top]
