Senate to release report on DepEd laptop deals before Christmas break
The Senate blue ribbon committee report on the investigation into the Department of Education‘s P2.4 billion laptop procurement deal is expected to be completed before Christmas break, Senator Francis Tolentino said.
“Siguro po before Christmas break we’ll have the committee report and as we have done before, we will release the dispositive portion in advance,” Tolentino said.
Tolentino said he was hesitant to release the report before Christmas but since the issue being investigated raised in 2022, they will release the recommendations within the year.
“Nag-aalangan nga ako kung ilalabas ngayong Kapaskuhan o hindi e pero kung ilalabas mo naman sa January baka sabihin naman bagong taon na bagong taon nilabas. So dahil issue ito ng 2022, ilabas na natin ngayong 2022,” he said.
