MANILA — Sen. Nancy Binay is challenging Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV to explain the P245 million in Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) funds allocated to him from 2011 to 2012.

Trillanes’ funds, according to Binay, are higher than those of other senators.

“Maybe it’s better that he does the explaining and show where the P245-million DAP went in a span of just one year,” she said in Filipino.

“I am wondering if Trillanes is a favorite of Abad of the DBM,” she said in Filipino, referring to the Department of Budget and Management chief.

She added that piecing out the information she found out all together made sense why Trillanes got P245 million.

“There’s Oplan Stop Nognog for 2016… Now I found out that Sen. Trillanes got P245 million DAP from Sec. Abad,” she said in Filipino.

“So if you connect the dots, they are all together, right? In a span of one year, he got P245 million from 2011 to 2012.”

Asked for his comment, Trillanes said that he had all the projects related to his DAP and PDAF posted on his website.

“All my projects related to DAP/PDAF are posted in my website,” he said.

“All of these were audited by COA and they did not see any negative findings,” he added.
