Thumbs-up ang kampo ni Association of ­Boxing Alliances in the Philippines president Ricky Vargas sa Senate inquiry sa mga alegasyong ­pagmamaniobra ng Pilipppine Olympic ­Committee sa eleksyon sa Nob. 25 at sa milyun-milyong ­unliquidated cash advances sa Philippine Sports Commission.

“We would welcome a Senate probe on POC issues as it highlights two important reasons why Ricky Vargas is presenting an alternative leadership: Greater transparency and accountability,” pahayag kahapon ni Atty. Chito Salud, spokesman ng ABAP president.

Ayon pa kay dating PBA commissioner Salud, dapat lang na i-account ni POC president Peping Cojuangco ang P129.6-million cash advances ng POC nu’ng 2010-16 sa PSC sa ilalim ng noo’y ­chairman Richie Garcia.

“The POC should publicly disclose how and where the money was utilized. And it should do so without further delay to allay growing concerns regarding non-transparency in its financial transactions. Basic norms of good governance demand this,” panapos ni Salud.

Tanggap din naman ni Cojuangco ang ­resolus­yong­ inihain nu’ng Miyerkules ni Sen. Sonny­ Angara­ na humihiling kay Senate Committee­ on Sports chairman Sen. Manny Pacquiao na ­imbestigahan ang POC sa pondo na may ­milyones ding mga alokasyon taun-taon sa International Olympic Committee, Olympic Council of Asia at mga donasyon sa private sector.
