POSSIBLE VIOLATIONS OF TOURISM ACT: Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Chairman and Senator Richard Gordon queries officials from the Department of Tourism (DOT) during a Senate probe on the possible malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance of certain government officials in the implementation of Republic Act 9593 or the Tourism Act on Thursday, November 10, 2016. Gordon said that there is a need to investigate the non-implementation of tax incentives under the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) “which have resulted in the loss of billions of dollars in investments and tourist expenditures.” (PRIB Photo by Albert Calvelo/ 10 November 2016)
