Senator Antonio Trillanes IV admitted that he, together with five other Senators received One Hundred Million pesos to fund projects from the Disbursement Acceleration Program for the years’ 2011 and 2012.
However, Trillanes explained that he didn’t know whether the said funds were charged to their Pork Barrel or through DAP, it was only recently that he knew about it.
Trillanes insisted that not a single centavo went to his pocket, and he can prove it through the Commission on Audit report.
The Senator also added that the Department of Budget and Management regularly advice them that they are allowed to submit a list of their projects. He was just following it for the benefit of the Filipinos.
