BIR Going After Sen. Enrile, Sen. Estrada and Sen. Revilla
Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Henares placed yesterday under tax audit. Sen. Enrile, Sen. Revilla and Sen. Estrada and other personalities implicated in the Php 10 Billion Pork Barrel/PDAF Scam. Henares move came a day after the Office of the Ombudsman recommended the filing of plunder and graft charges against 3 senators, businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles and several other persons allegedly diverting the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) money to bogus foundations of Napoles. As this developed VP Binay called on the government not to limit the filing of PDAF Scam charges on non-administration allies. Likewise the House Independent minority bloc asked the government to get rid of its color blind attitude and stop persecuting it's critics. They also called on PNoy to prosecute his allies who are also involved in the alleged Php 10 Billion Pork Barrel/PDAF Scam. Henares disclosed that she has already requested Ombudsman Morales for certified copies of the resolutions and other documentary evidence finding probable cause to charge the 3 senators and other 50 others with either plunder graft and corruption or both. The BIR Chief sald all other 50 respondents headed by Napoles, the alleged brains of the scam are also included in the tax audit. She said BIR investigators will study and evaluate the Ombudsman documents and if sufficient evidence is found the bureau will file the necessary criminal and civil charges.
