Bati na! JV Ejercito, PAO chief Acosta bury hatchet over Dengvaxia
All is well between Senator JV Ejercito and Public Attorney’s Office chief Persida Acosta over their differences on the controversial Dengvaxia vaccine program.
The two officials recently met and agreed to fight for the victims of Dengvaxia and hold those accountable for the fiasco.
“Nagkausap na at nagkaintindihan na kami ni PAO Chief @persidaacosta. Iisa ang hangarin, ipaglaban mga naging biktima ng Dengvaxia at mapanagot ang may kagagawan nito! PAO ang bahala sa mga biktima, kami naman ang maglalayon na ibalik ang tiwala sa ibang immunization program,” Ejercito wrote on Facebook.
Ejercito earlier reminded PAO to let the experts perform the autopsies on children who are believed to have died due to the Dengvaxia vaccine.
PAO earlier defended that the forensic examinations on the children’s bodies were made at the request of their parents. Their forensic experts claimed there was a “trend” in the deaths of children who received Dengvaxia.
