Mike Enriquez Tackle The Why's & Wherefores Of The Pork Barrel Issue In 'Imbestigador'

THE HOTTEST TOPIC these days, the Pork Barrel or Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF), will be tackled tonight in “Imbestigador”. In a special report by GMA News and Public Affairs, veteran broadcast journalist Mike Enriquez, GMA News reporters Maki Pulido and Joseph Morong, examine the different circumstances that lead to the alleged misuse of government funds. Entitled “Bantay Kaban ng Bayan”, it studies the involvement of various government officials and non-government entities in the suspected misuse of pork barrel funds amounting to billions of pesos.

“Bantay Kaban ng Bayan” trails Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to probe the numerous projects funded by the PDAF including infrastructure and livelihood programs. The special report also investigates the people behind the questionable non-government organizations or NGOs revealed recently by the Commission on Audit. Who benefited from the government funds meant to uplift the state of the economy? Do not miss “Imbestigador” tonight after Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA.
