Go says he’s ready to face Senate probe

Go said he was ready to face a Senate probe.
Trillanes said he would seek a Senate inquiry into government contracts cornered by Go’s family, and that he would pursue the probe of government contracts awarded to the security agency owned by Solicitor General Jose Calida.

The Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) has reported that two companies owned by Go’s father and half-brother, CLTG Builders and Alfrego Builders and Supply, had bagged construction projects in Davao worth billions of pesos.
Many of the projects have been delayed, the PCIJ said.
In a statement sent to reporters, Go said he was open to a probe.
He challenged Trillanes to “start as soon as possible” and to resign if the allegations were proven to be false.
Go said he would be “more than happy to face the inquiry,” as it would give him a chance to prove his “noninvolvement” and give him “free media mileage.”
Trillanes said he was not out for revenge.
“If anybody’s out for revenge, it’s them because I’m not inventing things,” he added. “This is what I have been doing from the start.”

He said he would also continue looking into Calida’s affairs.
“The people should know who and what kind of people they are,” he said.
The presidential proclamation voiding the amnesty given to Trillanes as a military rebel in 2011 was made public on the same day his committee was to open hearings on alleged conflict of interest posed by the Calida family’s security agency bagging contracts with government offices, including the Department of Justice. —With a report from Julie M.
