MANILA (Mabuhay) – Sen. Sergio Osmeña III does not believe that Philippine National Police chief Alan Purisima only spent P17,000 to P18,000 for a gazebo in his San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija property.
Osmeña said Purisima’s house is “well designed and clean, and the interiors are of a very high quality.”
He said the swimming pool inside the property would cost as much as P500,000 because the design and sidings are professionally done. The pool measures 7.5 meters by 15 meters.
The senator, however, said he does not believe Purisima only spent P17,000 to build the gazebo inside the property.
He said one pole inside the gazebo could cost P17,000 if it is molave.
“That is not small. That is the design I see in Panglao, Boracay…No way (its P17,000). One pole there will cost P17,000. One pole! Those are solid, probably a pitong or molave,” he said. (MNS)
