Blue Ribbon Committee obtains Dengvaxia documents hid by DOH officials

In an interview with the Super Radyo dzBB on Sunday, Senator Richard Gordon revealed that the Blue Ribbon Committee has recovered documents that has something to do with Dengvaxia vaccines that were being "hidden" by some people at the Department of Health (DOH).
"Mayroon pang mga tao na nagtatago ng mga dokumento na nasilip namin, mga kawani ng DOH na hindi ni-report iyong kakulangan ng Sanofi (There are DOH officials who hide the documents we found and did not report the faults of Sanofi)," Gordon said.

According to Gordon, the documents involve former Health secretary Janette Garin who forced the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration of the Philippines) to bypass the World Health Organizers (WHO’s) pre-qualification requirements and issue a permit for the distribution of Dengvaxia.

"It will show na ganun kalalim ang hawak ni Secertary Garin at that time na napapayag niya ang FDA na magbigay ng permit na hindi pa luto ang test (It will show how Secretary used her power that time, even the FDA followed her direction)" Gordon said.
"Lumalabas na 'di kumpleto ang papeles nitong Sanofi pero pinayagan (It shows that Sanofi was approved despite of its lack of requirements)," he added.

Gordon did provide any further information and said that the documents will be released by the blue ribbon committee during the continuation of its hearing on the Dengvaxia purchase on Tuesday (February 6).

Aside from graft, those involve in the purchase of Dengvaxia will also be charged with reckless imprudence resulting in homicide, recommended against members of the Aquino Cabinet, for the death of the children died from dengue.

Though Gordon said that there is no officials findings yet that would link Dengvaxia behind the children's death, named some of the officials who may be liable for graft —- former President Benigno Aquino III, Garin, former Budget secretary Florencio Abad and other officials from the past administration and the DOH.

Aside from that, the VACC also filed complaints against Aquino, Abad and Garin for allegedly violating the election law through the anti-dengue vaccination program.

"I don't agree necessarily with what they filed. Ang cause of action nila ay ginamit ang pera ng gobyerno pangkampanya. 'Di pa naman natin napapatunayan 'yon eh. Wala pa tayo roon eh (I don’t agree necessarily with what they filed. Their cause of action was the Government used the money for campaign. We haven’t proven it yet)," Gordon said.
