The House Committee on Good Government chaired by Rep. Johnny Pimentel grills Busan Universal Rail Inc. (BURI) on the highly questionable procedure and systems in its supply of train parts and equipment to the Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3). House Resolution No. 1212 introduced by Rep. Jericho Jonas B. Nograles seeks to look into the alleged “grossly disadvantageous” purchase of P4M-worth of fake train safety equipment for use in MRT3 coaches. Meanwhile, in the continuing deliberation on the sale of Paskuhan Village, Rep. Aurelio Gonzales maintained that the contract of sale is fake because it was facilitated by a fake company. Members present in the hearing are Deputy Speaker Gwendolyn Garcia, Senior Deputy Majority Leader Juan Pablo Bondoc, Reps. Eugene Michael de Vera, Rodante Marcoleta, Antonio Tinio, Leo Rafael Cueva, Aurora Enerio Cerilles, Ron Salo, Pablo Ortega, and Gabriel Bordado Jr. / PC/ICY JR.
