House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano again denies corruption in the P6 billion budget for the country's hosting of the SEA Games 2019. He says he can take a lie detector test with Sens. Franklin Drilon and Panfilo Lacson.

Cayetano also vows to face investigation once the games are over.

"Come December 12, hold me accountable. Hold the SEA games organizing committee accountable. Hindi ako magtatago. Ako haharap sa Senado, sa Ombudsman."

Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon stresses that the Senate did not slash funding for the SEA Games during deliberations on the 2019 budget.

"The journal of the Senate dated December 6, 2018 would clearly reveal that no member of the Senate slashed the budget of the SEA Games. The P7.5 billion funding for SEA Games that was mysteriously lodged in the budget of the Department of Foreign Affairs – that even the Foreign Affairs Sec. Teddy Locsin disowned – was only transferred to the Philippine Sports Commission," he says.

"The third reading version of the 2019 General Appropriations Bill passed by the Senate would show that the P7.5 billion budget lodged under the Philippine Sports Commission was intact. It was the bicam, which members of the House of Representatives were part of, that slashed this to P5 billion. For the record, it was not I who proposed to slash it to P5 billion during the bicam," he also says.

"The current budget of the SEA Games remains at P6 billion after P1 billion was transferred from the contingent fund," he says.

The Century Park Hotel Manila releases a statement explaining accommodation and other concerns involving SEA Games athletes from Thailand and Cambodia.

The hotel says the agreement on check-in time with organizers was at 2 p.m. but they were only told the night before about the early arrival of the Cambodia team.

"As much as we wanted to accommodate the request, it was not possible due to full occupancy. Standard check out is until 12:00NN. However, as early as 8:25am, some members were given an early check-in due to availability of rooms."

It says the hotel is also coordinating with the organizers on other concerns raised by the Thai team, "since part of the agreement with them is a cycle menu for the SEA Games delegation as well as two bottles of water per day to be supplied per person based on hotel industry standards."
