SC to livestream audio of pork barrel oral arguments
MANILA - The Supreme Court will be livestreaming the audio component of the oral arguments on the abolition of the pork barrel.
The high court will livestream the oral arguments on its website on October 8 beginning at 2:00 p.m.
It earlier stopped the Department of Budget and Management and other government offices from releasing the remaining priority development assistance fund and Malampaya fund except for purposes of financing energy-related programs.
Questions have been raised on the use of the pork barrel, after news came out that these have been siphoned to bogus non-government organizations.
The pork scam was allegedly perpetuated by businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles. Whistleblowers later revealed that a big chunk of the pork funds went into the pockets of some lawmakers.
