Former PCSO Chairman Manoling Morato is at it once again. He continues his nasty barrage against the present PCSO board chaired by no less than his kababayan, Margie Juico.
He claims that he dared Juico to a public debate about the agency, but his lady tormentor refuses to bite the bait. He accuses Juico and the PCSO board of mismanagement, something which ails the only agency that directly helps the poor.
Hundreds of sick Filipinos are now clueless–where will they go for help? That 7 million peso allotment every single day as medical assistance is affecting the operations of the agency. Hospitals are not being paid by the PCSO.
More than 700 PCSO employees are now facing forced retirement. There is also a sign that the PCSO will again transfer office, something which has been predicted by no less than Morato. Why? Because the rental of the PCSO eats the agency’s operational funds. There are indications that the PCSO board will decide to move the agency somewhere.
Morato also accused the board of allowing the PR fund to be controlled externally by no less than Publicist, Dante Ang. Ang is being accused by Morato as colluding with Philip Juico, husband of the PCSO chairman in managing or mis-managing the PCSO PR fund, which allegedly runs by the billions.
Anyway, the point is simple–the mandate of the PCSO is to raise funds to help the poor, especially the sick. How can the agency do its thing when its funds are being used for other purposes by the present board?
