Way Kurat denies receiving 3B pesos Pork Barrel
Former Compostela Valley Rep. Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora vehemently denied the Commission on Audit’s claim that he received 3 Billion pesos Pork Barrel.
According to Way Kurat, now the Vice Governor of Compostela Valley, he can’t believe that COA stated that he received one of the biggest chunk Pork Barrel fund from DBM since 2007 to 2009.
As far as the former Congressman is concern, his biggest fund only reached up to 50 Million pesos that was used in infrastructure projects.
Zamora also clarified that if combine the said amount in three years, it’ll only amount to 150 Million pesos and not the over the top 3 Billion pesos that COA claimed that he received.
Way Kurat is asking COA to do a breakdown of data of the alleged projects in questioned so that they can figure out if he indeed spent 3 Billion pesos. (Malou Cabral)
