Leachon slams Gov Marcos for ‘gross negligence’ over tobacco fund

Jul 26, 2017 @ 17:44

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on Tuesday (July 25) claimed she didn’t see anything wrong with the transactions that purchased motor vehicles using provincial tobacco funds when they passed her office for approval.

The Ilocos politiko said this during the House probe into into her alleged misuse of P66.45 million in tobacco funds to purchase motor vehicles.

But Marcos conceded she might have overlooked some protocols in the provincial government’s haste to tap the tobacco funds.

“Noong panahon na ‘yon wala akong napansin. Baka nakaligtaan at nagmamadali marelease ang 7171. Nagmamadali talaga kami sa gabundok na pinirpmahan, mga detalye ‘di ko na napansin,” she said.

But Oriental Mindoro 1st District Representative Doy Leachon said Marcos was liable for gross negligence.
