Belgica accuses Trillanes of ghost lamp project using DAP

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was recently accused of having used his Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) funds for a ghost lamp post project.

It was former Manila Councilor and convenor of watchdog Coalition for Investigation and Prosecution Greco Belgica who divulged Trillanes’ alleged ghost project to media, although he refused to give details on the project and municipality to protect the sources.

"[Trillanes] had different projects. Merong totoo merong ding hindi ghost," Belgica said.

Belgica already forwarded the details and documents on the lamp project to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for validation and further legal action.

"We submitted our documents, evidences and investigation reports on all DAP funds involving P144 billion. Isa lang 'yung kay Trillianes dun," Belgica said.

"We submitted our report to the DOJ so they can validate our information themselves and investigate through the National Bureau of Investigation para fair," he added.

Trillanes rebutted Belgica’s accusation by challenging the watchdog convener to file the complaint at the Ombudsman.

Alam niyo, isa pa yang si Belgica, may diperensya sa pag-i-isip. I don’t know why you keep on entertaining that. 

Nakakasama ko noong 2013 sa campaign, medyo may amats yan,” Trillanes said.

Despite his denials, Trillanes leaves it up to Belgica to try to prove the case.

Pero, sige. Sa ‘kin, don’t take my word for this. Sa ‘kin, sige lang. Kung meron siya, eh di i-file niya sa Ombudsman,” the senator said.
