"Mainam na pag-aralan ang panukalang ‘yan kung ito ay posible at kapaki-pakinabang.Naipanukala na rin ‘yan noong nakaraan at siguro pwede na ring balik-tanawin ‘yung mga resulta ng mga naging pag-aaral. At ito rin ay naimungkahi, katulad ng binanggit mo, ng ibang mga private investors, at dahil sa mga kadahilanang, ‘yan ay napapanahon na bigyan ito muli ng masusing pag-aaral" he said when asked if the government is willing to consider a proposal in Congress to convert the nuclear plant into a gas-fired plant
"Wherefore, the motion to dismiss is denied. Private Respondent Disini and the Office of the Solicitor General are both required to file their respective comments on petitioner Panganiban's petition (SP-132822) within a non-extendible period of ten days from notice" the CA said
"It doesn't affect the way I do my job, I've been given the task and I'm going to do it with or without confirmation" he said
The first case against Disini, filed on June 30, 2004, accused him of Corruption of Public Officials penalized under the Revised Penal Code for "offering his shares in Vulcan Industrial and Mining Corp. (2.5 B shares of stock having a book value of P100 each) and the Energy Corp. (4 B shares at P100 each) to Marcos through the Engineering and Construction Company of Asia, owned and controlled by Marcos, to allow Disini to seek and obtain for Burns and Roe and Westinghouse Electrical Corp. (Westinghouse) the contracts to do the engineering and architectural design and to construct the Philippine Nuclear Power Plant Project at Morong, Bataan which contracts were eventually awarded to Burns and Roe and Westinghouse."
