Commentary: Recovered ill-gotten wealth being used wisely to improve lives of the poor

Tacloban City (October 24) -- The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) beneficiaries in the hinterland could attest that the recovered ill-gotten Marcos wealth is being used wisely to improve the lives of the poor contrary to a published report claiming that it has ended up as a milking cow for projects unrelated to CARP.

Funny how some people always sees things negatively at the Administrationís projects. Even the most simple folk at the hinterland are already realizing that some people are blind when it comes to the developments which are happening because of the firm determination of the President to push the country forward in terms of economic and political reforms.

Truly, the funds taken from the recovered Marcos Swiss deposits are being returned to the people in the form of lasting social interventions to alleviate poverty. All pertinent documents and records (of the projects related to CARP) are open for scrutiny by the public, Presidential Spokesman Bunye said.

The Administration is just in the full implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program and the public is assured that every centavo of the recovered ill-gotten wealth will be used wisely especially to improve economic lives of the poor, particularly the farmers and hundreds of human rights victims.

The Presidential Agrarian Reform Council is conducting an investigation with all government agencies concerned in order to clear any doubts over the alleged misuse of funds from the recovered ill-gotten wealth of the Marcoses.

Bunye also clarified clarified that the published report was based only on the "review of selected accounts" on the preliminary findings from a special audit of disbursements made by CARP implementing agencies and not based on the whole documents of the expenditures.

It is hoped that prudence and propriety be used before making any negative allegations to the programs of the country lest this give a negative image of the country and the people as a whole. (PIA 8) [top]
