CONFIRMED:Ex-DOTC Sec. Abaya Sued For P3.8 Billion LTO License Plate Fiasco during Aquino Administration
Former transportation secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya is facing graft charges for the scandal-tainted deal to deliver P3.8 billion worth of license plates during the Aquino administration.
Abaya and six other officials of Department of Transportation and Communications (now Department of Transportation) and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has been charged with graft.
“We filed this complaint to add the government officials responsible for conspiring with the private suppliers who were indicted by the DOJ for using falsified documents to get the contract. There is a conspiracy because the car plate manufacturer and DOTC officials awarded the contract despite the submission of falsified documents and negative financial standing,” said Vitangcol.
