Economic sabotage for alleged rice smuggler


According to Sen Cynthia Villar, alleged rice smuggler David Bangayan (aka David Tan) should also  be charge with economic sabotage. “Economic sabotage would have been a heavier case with heavier penalties. It’s about time we enact a law clearly stating that rice smuggling constitutes economic sabotage. We need harsher penalties for this act,  The penalties provided in the law are too light, and won’t serve as deterrent to these acts,” Sun Star

The National Bureau of Investigation NBI) has recommended that Bangayan be charged with bid fixing under Republic Act 9184, the Government Procurement Reform Act, and monopoly in restraint of trade under the Revised Penal Code. Villar vowed to monitor the developments in the cases filed. Sun Star
