FSGO Wish list

I say wish list because I believe these have slim chances of being minded by Philippine’s little president.

• That the current members of the Cabinet resign and support the continuation of the Senate inquiry into the NBN contract with ZTE Corp.
• That the President order former National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Director General Romulo Neri to resume his testimony at the Senate “without any restrictions or limitations.”
• That she order the release and delivery to the Senate of all public records pertaining to the NBN-ZTE deal, chiefly the minutes of the NEDA board meetings on the project.
• That she suspend Transportation and Communications Secretary Leandro Mendoza and Assistant Secretary Lorenzo Formoso III..
• That she suspend Environment Secretary Lito Atienza, Philippine National Police Director General Avelino Razon, Deputy Executive Secretary Manuel Gaite, assistant airport general manager Angel Atutubo, Supt. Paul Mascariñas, and all officials who had allegedly tried to muzzle whistle-blower Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr.
• That she stop any attempts by government agencies to harass Lozada and other witnesses.

To me these are reasonable; it is expected for a public servant to be questioned for accountability. This is actually a good chance to show transparency in our government. Well this is Philippines……
