Guingona: DA, NFA executives making millions

Posted by akosistella on March 10, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – Opposition Rep. Teofisto Guingona III claimed yesterday that so-called “crocodiles” or corrupt government officials are raking in millions of dollars in commissions on rice importations.

Guingona, a congressman of Bukidnon and a senatorial candidate of the Liberal Party, said these officials, whom he did not identify, are apparently behind the government’s decision to increase rice imports even before experts could ascertain the extent of damage to farming caused by the El Niño dry spell.

“Total imports this year will hit a record high of 2.45 million metric tons (49 million 50-kilo bags),” he said.
