ZTE-NBN deal report---a first peek

The ZTE-NBN deal report will be released very, very soon. And I got the chance to peek at the report.

Tsk,tsk,tsk. It's a revelation.

First off, whoever wrote the report is very brave. It's straight-forward. It tells it like it is. It is revelatory. And it will shock the entire Philippines.

Second, it specifically points out the culprits. There were no saints, only villains. It tells it like it is---the ZTE-NBN deal is one made for everyone involved to profit at the expense of the Filipino taxpayer. In the Ombusman report, some people were exempted from charges of collusion and graft; in this report, everyone, including the First Family, was charged. Cool.

Lastly, I just hope that when that momentous day comes, when the Public finally realizes who were at fault and who really profitted from this multi-billion peso deal, they (and I am referring to the right government agencies) will do the right thing and file all those charges in court. Let those who really wanted to get a fast buck out of this deal suffer the full force of the law.

It's already 11:06 pm. Time to sleep. Tomorrow, I'll write another entry about this deal.
