Sen. Grace Poe has formally filed a resolution calling for an investigation on the Philippine National Police procurement of defective patrol vehicles totaling R1.89 billion in 2015.
Poe filed Senate Resolution No. 777 asking the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee and the Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs to conduct an inquiry, in aid of legislation, on the report of the Commission on Audit regarding the PNP’s purchase of Mahindra
Enforcer and Mahindra Scorpion vehicles for “possible misfeasance, malfeasance, and nonfeasance.”
The senator had earlier said she will push for a Senate inquiry on the matter, saying the CoA report validated her concerns when she chaired the public order panel at the time of the purchase. Poe filed the measure last July 3.
“The CoA report validates concerns raised way back in 2014, during which it was reported that the terms of reference for the purchase were modified to eliminate other bidders, and that Mahindra was not even qualified in the first place due to their lack of service centers,” Poe said in the resolution.

Dapat lang po yan Sen. Poe! Kaduda-duda naman talaga ang presyo ng mga Mahindra Jeeps na yan. Palibhasa nasanay ang mga dilawan na yan abusuhin ng patago ang kaban ng bayan.
Sana maumpisahan na ang pagdinig ng makita ko namang pinagpapawisan si Roxas habang tinatanong kung asan na ung pera? Bakit bumili ng walang kwentang sasakyan na overpricing pa.
Sinayang ng administrasyong Aquino ung buwis ng mamamayan para lang sa mga bagong sasakyan ng PNP. Which is by the way, mukhang 2nd hand pa ata pero malaki ang kickback ng mga alagad ni panot.
Dapat matuloy yang hearing na yan Senadora Grace. Para mas malaman ng ating mga kababayan kung gaano ginamit nila Roxas ang buwis ng mamamayan, para sa pansarili nilang interes.
Basta para sa katarungan para sa ating mga kababayan, andyan lage si Senator Grace. Keep up the good work!
