Subpoena for Nueva Ecija, Negros Oriental governors

Rep. Johnny T. Pimentel.

Committee on good government and public accountability chair Rep. Johnny Pimentel continues the hearing on the apparent corruption and irregularities in the imposition, collection, and distribution of taxes and fees from the quarrying operations in Nueva Ecija and other provinces.

The committee’s inquiry is based on House Resolution 1505 filed by Reps. Sofia Vergara, Micaela Violago, Magnolia Antonino, and Arnolfo Teves, Jr.

The committee unanimously voted for the issuance of subpoena duces tecum and ad testificandum to Nueva Ecija Governor Cherry Umali, her husband former Nueva Ecija Gov. Aurelio Umali, and Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo for their continued failure to heed the invitation of the committee.
