Lawmaker richer by P200M in a year

Would you believe that a junior lawmaker became richer by more than P200 million in just 12 months? Leyte Rep. Vicente Veloso offers no secret formula for accumulating wealth but this: Declare your property accurately when filing your annual statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN). His wealth surged by 826.8 percent to P228 million in 2017 from P24.6 million in 2016, easily topping the list of House members whose net worth more than doubled in a year's time. The retired Court of Appeals justice, however, explained that when he filed his SALN for 2017, he declared the current "assessed value" of his decades-old properties instead of their acquisition costs. T...Keep on reading: Lawmaker richer by P200M in a year.....»»

Raring for big comeback as third telco, PT& T sets out to save rehab plan

Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (PT&T), the former telco giant that fell on hard times but is now vying to become the country's third major player under a new set of owners, is moving to save a rehabilitation plan implemented in 2011. This came after creditors holding about P12.4 billion of PT&T's debts succeeded in convincing the Court of Appeals last year to dismiss the company's petition for rehabilitation, arguing that the plan was not viable and was thus "almost impossible to implement." Another option, they said, was to liquidate PT&T's assets. In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Wednesday, PT&T said it filed an appeal before the Supre...Keep on reading: Raring for big comeback as third telco, PT&T sets out to save rehab plan.....»»
