Citing official correspondence from Abad to House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte dated August 1, 2014, (Toby) Tiangco said the budget chief asked Congress to adopt and prioritize a proposed bill that effectively redefines the practice of impounding savings which the Supreme Court ruled as illegal and unconstitutional. “The fact that Abad requested the Speaker to accommodate the redefinition of ‘savings’ is a clear admission of his criminal liability, and now he wants to use Congress to absolve him,” Tiangco pointed out.
