The suspension of the national broadband network deal with ZTE proves that something is terribly wrong with it. Suspending it, however, will not actually solve the problem.
Congress and the Supreme Court should all the more probe the anomalous deal.
The bribe money for the transaction was quoted as high as $180 million. I suspect part of this went to the administration’s election kitty last May.
Hence, I propose that legislators pursue the investigation including this angle that foreign money were spent in the last poll campaign contrary to our election laws.
Pro-Malacanang senators elected last May – Ed Angara, Joker Arroyo and Miggy Zubiri – should be concerned that the money “donated” to them by the administration could be dirty and may have come from China.
