ZTE broadband $330 M misdeal: Elections chief Benjamin Abalos in hot water

Comelec Chairman Benjamin Abalos has no business in DOTC broadband project. He is not an expert in wireless telecommunications. What monkey business he is dealing with China’s ZTE?


Graft raps filed vs DOTC
chief over broadband deal

BY PETER TABINGO
NUEVA Ecija Rep. Carlos Padilla yesterday filed criminal complaints before the Office of the Ombudsman against Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza and two subordinates over alleged anomalies in the awarding of the $330 million broadband project to Chinese firm ZTE Corp.
Padilla accused Mendoza and assistant secretaries Lorenzo Formoso and Elmer Soneja of violating the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, the Telecommunications Policy Act, the Build-Operate-Transfer Act and the Government Procurement Act.
He said executives of ZTE Corp. including its chairman Hou Weigi, vice president Yu Yong, chief Manila representative George Zhu Ying, and executive director Fan Yang should also be indicted for conspiring with DOTC officials in binding the Philippine government to what he said was an onerous deal.
He assailed Mendoza’s decision to burden the public with the $330 million project funded by a loan from the Chinese government, saying two other bidders were willing to build the broadband project at no cost to government. The other bidders were Amsterdam Holdings Inc. and Ameriscom of the United States.
"There was no bidding done for this project, and under the law, all telecommunications projects of the national government have to be bidded out. In this case, all aspects of the contract are suspicious because these have been kept under wraps," the opposition lawmaker said.
Padilla also chided the Department of Justice for allowing itself to be the "laughing stock" for rendering a favorable opinion on the ZTE project, when the department allegedly did not even have a copy of the contract. Malaya 08/29/2007
