Payback for NLEX stand-off? MVP denies hand in demolition job against Gatchalians

Bilyonaryo Manny V. Pangilinan has denied speculation that the Salim-Metro Pacific Group is behind the demolition job circulating in business and political circles over the last two weeks.

“There’s a malicious and absolutely false rumour being circulated about the Gatchalian family; that we’re somehow sponsoring this rumour. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ROLE OR PARTICIPATION WHATSOEVER WITH THIS RUMOUR. WE DO NOT ENDORSE OR SUPPORT, THIS SPITEFUL RUMOUR IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER,” said the 74-year old chairman of the Salim-Metro Pacific Group, including NLEX Corp.

Although Pangilinan did not specify the allegations, he was alluding to a white paper against bilyonaryo William Gatchalian and his sons: Senator Sherwin, Valenzuela City Mayor Rex, Congressman Weslie, and businessman Kenneth.

The white paper surfaced after Rex publicly shamed NLEX by suspending its business permit in Valenzuela City after its defective RFID system caused massive gridlocks in the city’s toll gateways.

Rex agreed to a conditional lifting of the toll holiday on December 16 after NLEX agreed to implement a barriers up system in collection toll in Valenzuela’s access ways.
