Kasama na Kongreso! Duterte announces looming probe on DMCI-Ecoland collapse
Congress is set to investigate the collapse of the Ecoland 4000 condominium building in Davao City which collapsed during an earthquake last October, President Rodrigo Duterte said Friday (January 11).
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN news anchor Ted Failon, Duterte accused DMCI Holdings chairman and president Isidro Consunji of failing to settle with Ecoland homeowners.
“Come to think of it, Congress will investigate that. Until now, the owners of condominiums are groping in the dark,” he said.
Duterte sad he would also order an audit of all DMCI buildings.
“I will order an audit of all your buildings and all the violations you have committed. Huwag mo ako pilitin. Sabi ko sa iyo, mayaman na kayo tama na,” he said.
Duterte said he will ban DMCI from building new structures if Consunji doesn’t compensate the Ecoland homeowners whose condominium units were damaged in the earthquake.
