A lawyer for Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corp. on Wednesday accused Senator Risa Hontiveros of bribery to allegedly entice a warehouse staff to make claims against the embattled company.

Ferdinand Topacio, representing the firm that copped billions-worth government deals for the supply of pandemic response equipment that is now being probed by the Senate and the House of Representatives claimed Hontiveros corrupted the warehouse staff to pose as a witness and besmirch the reputation of the company.
