Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Henares bared yesterday that revenue probers are now investigating lawmakers who might have benefitted unjustly from the Priority Development Assistance Fund.
Henares divulged that the BIR will be using as basis for its investigation a controversial report from the Commission on Audit detailing the manner lawmakers spent their pork.
“Yes because there was an allegation in the COA report,” Henares said when asked by reporters if lawmakers implicated in the pork barrel scam were facing BIR scrutiny.
However, Henares refused to name those lawmakers supposedly under investigation for allegedly mishandling their pork.
