Breaking News : Roxas, De Lima, Seuno could land in jail over multi-billion firetruck deal



Alleged anomalous billion-peso firetruck deal involving foreign European company Rosenbauer might become the reason for Senator Leila De Lima, former Interior Secretaries Mar Roxas and Ismael Sueno to land in jail.

That is according to Attoyrney Leo Romero, the legal council of the former ABAKADA party-list representative who disclosed that criminal complaints are being planned against the three politicians.

The lawyer said that they are already gathering more documents to use as evidence against De Lima, Roxas and Sueno and they also sent a letter to DILG requesting more copies of vouchers, certificate of employments and receipts.
According to Romero, the deal neither underwent the required public bidding nor was given appropriation by Congress.

“I sent a letter to the DILG requesting for copies of vouchers, certificate of payments, receipts so that we can file appropriate criminal charges for plunder, malversation , graft and violatiion of the procurement law,” Romero said.Sueno was also involved in the deal because he was the one who implemented the deal that was executed during the time of former DILG Secretary Roxas.
That is one of the reason why President Duterte fired Sueno.“There are two contracts here. 

The first contract was entered into and executed during the time of the previous administration and the second one Secretary Sueno proceeded to implement,” he added.Former Justice Secretary De Lima could also involved in the deal because she was the one who ‘issued and signed a legal opinion approving the supply contract
