MANILA, Philippines – Reports to Senator Richard Gordon have shown that Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corp. executive Krizle Mago, who made a “damaging” admission against her company last week, is no longer in her condominium and is supposed to be protected by “certain bodyguards”.
“All we know is that she is no longer in her condominium and we are told that she totally ignores her phone calls or that she has absolutely no control over herself, we do not know”, said Gordon, chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee. , said Monday in an interview on “The Source” of CNN Philippines.
“We got a clue that she was supposed to be under the protection of ‘some bodyguards’ and we don’t know if it’s really reliable, but we hope for the best. We hope that she is not injured. We hope she is not intimidated, ”he added.
During Friday’s hearing, Mago confessed that she was ordered to order Pharmally warehouse staff to replace face shield production certificates dated 2020 with new certificates dated 2020. 2021.
Mago is the head of regulatory affairs for Pharmally.
“Obviously, this statement speaks volumes about the fact that she agreed that the country had been defrauded by Pharmally and its activities,” Gordon continued.
After Mago’s testimony last Friday, the senators offered to grant him police custody. She said she would think about it.
Since then, the Blue Ribbon Committee has not been able to reach her.
“All we know is that she didn’t respond, ayaw niyang sumagot or di siya pinasasagot. We are very worried because yung sinabi niya [what she said is] very damaging, ”Gordon said.
“I think that indicates more or less clearly the amount of effort that has been made to try to deceive and defraud the government and the people of the Philippines,” he added.
Gordon called on Mago to resurface “as soon as possible”.
“Magpakita na siya [She should show up], the leak of kasi is an indication of guilt, ”added the senator.
Senators are investigating government transactions with Pharmally, which was awarded more than 8.6 billion pesos in medical supply contracts in 2020 when it is only several months old and has only 625,000 pesos in paid-up capital.
Pharmally chairman and chairman Huang Tzu Yen has previously denied being favored in any way in the government’s purchase of medical supplies in 2020, saying the company has been “unfairly prejudiced.”
