OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF Former Tourism Secretary, Brod Ramon Jimenez, Jr. ’72 on the alleged NBI charges vs. DOT officials
“We believe these “charges” are meant to draw public attention away from the current controversy involving the current Dept. of Tourism leadership and PTV4 where nearly P60million were allegedly spent to buy airtime in a TV program owned and produced by a preferred party. In a way, I would welcome an opportunity to dramatize the stark contrast between our devotion to transparency and accountability and the crude methods of media planning and buying that appear to be the prevailing practice today.”
