Sila ang nag plano! Duterte claims: Huge law firm behind ‘onerous’ water deals
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte asserted on Wednesday that a huge law firm could be behind the alleged onerous water concession agreements.
In his speech before the members of Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, Duterte again accused the two water concessionaires, Manila Water and Maynilad of turning the water distribution services into a money-making venture.
“Ang nag plano niyan mga abogado. Ang nag plano niyan malaking opisina na law firm. They are the only one who could do that,” according to the President.
“Government lawyers would never attempt, even to… Ang gusto ko lang malaman bakit ginawa ito ng p*tang i*a. That is why until now I do not want to face them. Baka masampal ko talaga,” he also said.
Duterte had threatened to nationalize water distribution in Metro Manila if the two firms will not accept the new contracts.
