The House of Representatives is not the right party to investigate itself in connection with allegations some lawmakers had taken bribes to support the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), a congressman said on Thursday.
Davao City Rep. Karlo Alexei Nograles suggested that a “neutral body” like the Senate should look into the claim that a number of congressmen had received bribes from Chinese fugitive Wang Bo.
“I have no doubt about the integrity of the House and the good intentions of the representatives pushing for this probe,” Nograles said in a statement. “But I think the House is not the proper venue considering it is the subject of investigation. How can the subject of investigation be the investigator itself?”
