More lawmakers deny links to DPWH corruption

Lawmakers accused of alleged corruption involving infrastructure projects denied claims against them. The list was submitted by the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission and read by the President in a speech on December 28.

Misamis Occidental 2nd District Representative Henry Oaminal said he was saddened by his inclusion in the list but would welcome any probe to clear his name.

Noting the President’s pronouncement that there is still “no hard evidence” against the lawmakers, Oaminal categorically denied involvement in any anomalies or corrupt activities.

The congressman explained the construction company, which the PACC report mentioned he owned, was founded in 1988 “long before” he entered public service.

He said, “When I became congressman, I sold all my shares. Upon verification, HSO Construction Corporation does not have any construction projects in all government agencies in Misamis Occidental, including DPWH.”
