Ong Lawyer Cites Law To Justify Non-Compliance, Senators Say They Wrote That Law

ONG LAWYER – Pharmally director, Linconn Ong’s lawyer was in the hot seat after he cites a law to justify his client’s non-compliance with the Pharmally investigation.

Ever since the investigation into Pharamlly began, Ong and his camp have been dodging important questions coming from the Senate. According to his lawyer, the Senate probe was looking for “blood” and “not the truth”.

Furthermore, he had called the Senate Blue Ribbon a Kangaroo court. Recently, Ong provided a letter to the Senate stating that he would no longer participate in the investigation.

Ong Lawyer Cites "Corporation Code" To Senators Who Wrote Law

But, when Senators asked on what grounds, Ong’s lawyer cited the “Corporation Code” confidentiality. However, the Senators ruled the law as inapplicable to the current investigation.

Former Justice Secretary Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon stated:

“These are matters of public interest. These are matters submitted being asked of them in relation to this inquiry. And this is in performance of our constitutional duty. “

Moreover, the Senator said that he was among the people who wrote the law. Afterward, he firmly said that there was nothing in the law that justified the invocation of their provisions.

Currently, Ong is being detained at the Senate building in Pasay City. During initial investigations into Pharmally, Senators found Ong deliberately evading important questions regarding the allegations against Pharmally.

Meanwhile, Ong’s lawyer, said that he would not be submitting documents despite the Senate demanding them to release what was supposedly a public document.
