Ex-COA auditor Heidi Mendoza, muling naging emosyunal sa Senate probe

Labis umanong nasasaktan ngayon si dating COA auditor Heidi Mendoza sa mga naging
patutsada sa kaniya ng kasamahan sa Commission on Audit (COA) dahil sa kaniyang mga naging
testimonya sa nangyayaring katiwalaian sa hanay ng militar.

Kaugnay nito, humihingi ito ng paumanhin sa kaniyang mga nasasaktan at iginiit na kaniya
lamang isinakripisyo ang kaniyang sarili upang ihayag ang katotohanan at nalalamang anomalya
sa hanay ng AFP.

Dahil dito, nakiusap na lamang ang testigo sa Senate blue ribbon committee na hindi na lamang
ito dadalo sa Lunes sa pag-resume ng pagdinig ng Senado hinggil sa nabunyag na anomalya sa
sandahang lakas ng bansa.
"Hindi ako umaayaw sa pagtestigo. I come with clean hands. I am not perfect, humihingi po ako
ng paumanhin, kung pwede huwag nalang maging resource person. Ang dami ko nang
nasakripisyo dito on may private capacity," ani Mendoza.

Muling iginiit nito na hindi ito natatakot sa COA at maging sa AFP kungdi nais lamang umano
nitong maging malinis ang takbo ng ahensiya at magkaroon ng malinis na gobyerno at umaasang
magkaroon ng reporma sa gobyerno.

Samantala, umaasa pa rin ang mga senador na magbago ang panindigan ni Mendoza upang
maging resource person sa darating na Lunes kasunod ng pangako ni Sen. Teofisto Guingona III
na nakahanda silang bigyan ng proteksiyon at seguridad dahil kanila naman umano itong
nirerespeto at nauunawaan.
