House committee uncovers anomalies in Yolanda Housing Project

The two House committees have assured that they are responsible for discovering crude and substandard housing to the Yolanda victims after subcontractor himself conceded the cost of building housing projects.

Both the House Committee on Housing and Urban Development Chairman Albee Benitez and Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone, chairman of the House Committee on Banks and Financial Intermediaries, will have an in-depth investigation into Yolanda housing projects and all who neglect and take advantage of their personal interests will be bound by the law.

The statement was made by two lawmakers after appearing in their initial inspection and investigation into the state of housing projects for Typhoon Yolanda victims na palpak ang mga itina­yong pabahay partikular sa Ba­langina, Eastern Samar.

In a house inquiry conducted in Tacloban City, Benitez said the subcontractor Engineer Camilo Salazar admitted that the low-quality equipment was used primarily in the steel and cement class.

Juanito Tayag is the main contractor in the construction of housing units and has acquired subcontractors.

Benitez said that the guidelines issued by the National Housing Authority (NHA) are clearly inadequate in building housing.

At the same time, lawmakers urged the Commission on Audit (COA) to immediately investigate how huge funds were spent in Yolanda housing projects.
