Yolanda Housing

  USE of substandard materials discovered

Photo Release 10 October 2017  House committee on good government and public accountability chairman Rep. Johnny Ty Pimentel, and committee on housing and urban development chair Rep. Alfredo “Albee” B. Benitez, in a joint hearing deliberated on House Resolution 599 authored by Rep. Ben Evardone which called for an inquiry on the snail-paced implementation of housing relocation and resettlement projects for Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda victims. The committee grilled contractor JC Builders Inc. for the alleged anomalies and officials of the National Housing Authority-Region VIII for failure of its monitoring sysyem, and noted that without the House inquiry and the help of a whistle blower, the use of substandard materials would not be discovered.
