The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) is flexing its muscles as it attempts to straighten out National Sports Associations (NSA) with liquidation problems.

 

The PSC yesterday formally signed a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Justice in line with the government agency’s directive to go after NSAs that have been ignoring its pleas to settle their obligations.

 

“It’s more of governance and accountability,” said PSC chairman Butch Ramirez, who signed the MOA with DOJ assistant secretary Margaret Castillo-Padilla and PSC deputy executive director Guillermo Iroy.

 

“This MOA should deter NSAs from mishandling funds,” said Castillo-Padilla.

 

In the PSC’s close to 30-year existence, liquidation problems have become a part and parcel of the agency’s dealing with the NSAs.
