In an exclusive interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph), Film Development Council of the Philippines head Liza Diño called out Rappler for putting out a story on corruption charges against her partner, Ice Seguerra, without verifying the facts first.
An angry Liza said:
“Nakakatawa lang na nakakainis kasi may mga iresponsable na akala nila gagamiting bala, I don’t know for their own agenda. It’s so malicious the way it was written.”
While it is not clear what story the FDCP head was referring to, she said it was funny how people were accusing Ice of being corrupt just because his meal expenses amounted to PHP 234,000.
“My God, isang kanta lang ‘yun (PHP 234,000) ng asawa ko!”
Ice was the chairperson of the National Youth Commission from 2017 until April of this year, when he resigned.
During her interview, Liza explained in detail how receipts and other paperwork were processed by the Commission on Audit. She shamed those who accused Ice of corruption, saying all of her husband’s expenditures have now been accounted for and reconciled by the aforementioned government agency.
“Siya ang last person na iisipin niyong corrupt, abonado pa siya sa gobyerno noong nandun siya.”
