Congress Waiting for go signal for "tanim-bala" Inquiry

The House Committees on Good Government and Public Accountability and Transportation are waiting for House leadership instructions to start the probe on the infamous tanim-bala (bullet planting) scam that are prevalent at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Pampanga Congressman Oscar Rodriguez, chairman of the House Committee on Good Government and Catanduanes Congressman Cesar Sarmiento, chairman of the House Committee on Transportation which initially conducted a hearing on “tanim-bala” incidents at NAIA last September, said the 9 resolutions have yet to be referred to their respective committees.

“The probe has yet to be scheduled. Once the resolutions are referred to us, we would immediately start the investigation,” Rodriguez said in an interview.

Sarmiento said they are waiting for the House Committee on Rules’ go-signal to jumpstart the investigation. The Rules Committee is headed by House Majority Leader and Mandaluyong Rep. Neptali “Boyet” Gonzales II.

“It is still with the Rules Committee,” Sarmiento said.

Both Rodriguez and Sarmiento expressed readiness to conduct a full-blown probe on the bullet scam.
