WATCH: Senate probes controversial frigate deal HIGHLIGHTS: - Former Defense Sec. Voltaire Gazmin: We did our best in implementing the procurement of the equipment for AFP. - Gazmin: I did not issue any approval for the awarding of the projects during the transition period. - Gazmin: We initiated the procurement of Navy frigate project. - Former Navy chief Ronald Joseph Mercado: I did not resist the implementation of frigate deal. - Defense Sec. Delfin Lorenzana: People before were relieved quickly, without any ceremony. In the case of Mercado, he was unceremoniously relieved because there was no ceremony. - Sen. Ping Lacson: I did my own investigation. It was easy to conclude that something went wrong with otherwise noble endeavor to modernize our Navy fleet. - Mercado: On December 18, I was surprised to learn that I am being relieved allegedly for insubordination. I have never disobeyed any lawful order of my superior. I have never been accused nor convicted of malfeasance. - Hyundai Heavy Industries representative Sandra Han: Hyundai was never blacklisted in South Korea. - Lorenzana: There is presumption of regularity in frigate deal as Navy had been engaging with HHI for two years. - Bong Go: Sobrang hirap sagutin ang mga bintang na wala ka namang kinalaman. - Go: I am ready to face all these accusations in a public hearing. In fact, I have requested the Senate for a full-blown investigation. - Mercado: The recollection of Lorenzana on what transpired during the contract signing was not accurate.
