House committee on good government chairman Rep. Johnny Pimentel and committee on health chairperson Rep. Angelina Tan talk about the Dengvaxia controversy during the bi-monthly press briefing dwelling into the findings of the joint hearings conducted by their panels on alleged irregularities committed in the procurement and distribution of the anti-dengue vaccine manufactured by French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur. The inquiry focused on the efficacy and safety of the vaccine and on the "apparent, obvious and manifest" illegality on the procurement and misappropriation of public funds related to the dengue vaccination program of the Department of Health (DOH) amounting to P3.5 billion. Former President Aquino and former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad have been invited to the next hearing. / RBB/GE
