Share Share Share – BREAKING NEWS: #PresidentDuterte releases ‘NBP drug link matrix’

Update: Personalities tagged in ‘matrix’ include now Sen De Lima (former Secretary of Justice), Usec Toti Baraan, Pangasinan Prov Admin Raffy Baraan, Gen Franklin Bucayu, Cong Amado T. Espino (former Pangasinan Governor)pnp matrix de lima photos and participation, Ronnie P. Dayan (De Lima’s ex driver-bodyguard) & ‘BM’ Raul P. Sison.

The plot thickens. President Duterte revealed the Delima – Pangasinan – BUCOR – Bilibid Prison connection. Starting from a provincial drug operation (LOVER/BODYGUARD is from Urbiztondo, Pangasinan), the DELIMA DRUG MAFIA, then still a Northern Luzon regional powerhouse,  was able to put people in charge of the Philippine prison system which culminated in the cooperation with the Asian DRUG TRIAD members currently jailed in the National Penitentiary (Peter Co – Luzon, Herbert Colangco – Mindanao). Visayan TRIAD DRUG LORD Peter Lim (after meeting with President Duterte) is still scot-free.








Villar Ayala Yulo lose Sta. Rosa Laguna LANDGRABBING Case

BUYERS BEWARE: Subdivision lot owners in Villar Ayala Yulo Sta. Rosa developments fear losing their fully/partially paid properties.

Real estate giants Villar, Ayala and Yulo lost a 430 hectare LANDGRABBING case in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Only the Villar side (that got 50 hectares out of the disputed 430 hectares) filed and lost on appeal while Ayala and Yulo stood aside to wait for the decision which also affects their separate but adjacent land claims.

The final verdict was promulgated in February of 2016 but then Aquino Administration Department of the Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Paje did not release the landmark decision. With the assumption of the Duterte Administration last June 30, 2016 and a new DENR Secretary in the person of Gina Lopez, the ancestral owners of the contested land are confident that JUSTICE will prevail. The long-standing dispute has resulted in the LOSS of LIVES on the side of farmer families who have always denounced FAVORITISM on the part of government land officials, local government unit executives and the police. The real estate moguls have resorted to physical violence and legal harassment in the form of filing endless frivolous case in the barangay and municipal levels.

Sta. Rosa, Laguna has grown into a prime suburban development area with the old industrial factories now side-by-side with plush subdivisions. The greatest impact of the adverse decision against the developers is the question of whether the REAL OWNERS would take PHYSICAL CONTROL of the mall, retail and office areas as well as high-end houses that are already occupied by the unsuspecting “BUYERS” who have paid, in part or in full, for their properties. Developers, of course, have the option to purchase the land that they have already improved nuvaliand absorb huge losses in exchange for peace of mind. Otherwise, they stand to be deluged with lawsuits as well as TARNISHING their CREDIBILITY which may affect future sales in their many other projects.

De Lima DID NOT deny receiving DRUG LORD money for her campaign

Upon being NAMED by President Duterte as having an ILLICIT LOVE AFFAIR with her married driver, Senator De Lima lashed at the Digong low blow that exposed her secret relationship. However, she DID NOT DENY that her driver received her campaign money from DRUG LORDS in Bilibid Prison. She is just hoping that since President Duterte was UNGENTLEMANLY in his expose, people would conclude that Digong was not telling the truth. De Lima should have taken the opportunity to DENY in absolute terms the charge that she is PROTECTING DRUG LORDS for a fee. The fact that she side-stepped the ILLEGAL DRUG issue would only fan more SPECULATION that she is indeed harboring DRUG LORDS.


Duterte: Senator Delima has a driver lover who collected campaign money from DRUG LORDS in Bilibid Prison

(UPDATED) President Duterte specifically named Senator De Lima in a later interview.


Share Share Share – Breaking News: Duterte slams female senator whose lover (her family driver) collected campaign money from the drug lords in Bilibid Prison. May VIDEO pa raw when she was investigating then Mayor Duterte, linking him to the Davao Death Squad. President Duterte DID NOT name the female senator, however, he says she constantly criticizes him on the issue of human rights. Sino kaya? Your guess is as good as ours. Please give your comment. This is the latest CLUE to the President’s continuing and escalating barbs against a “female executive” who has been tormenting him. Digong has previously stated that he would DESTROY (name and shame) the senator in PUBLIC. Like Like Like ——>>>> Duterte

Duterte: QC Kagawads Hayes and Pamplona test POSITIVE for DRUG USE, QC 4th District Councilor Hero Bautista (brother of Mayor Bistek Bautista) goes on LEAVE of ABSENCE after POSITIVE TEST and ADMISSION to DRUG USE

303 QC employees test positive, 72 more QC cops sacked (88 previously relieved)

Note: Two of FIVE PNP Generals/Drug Protectors (Pagdilao and Tinio were assigned to Quezon City).



303 QC government personnel tested positive in drug testing

July 19, 2016  UPDATE.PH

A total of 303 Quezon City government personnel were found positive in recent drug testing, QC Anti Drug Abuse Advisory Council (QCADAAC) chairperson and Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte announced on Tuesday Topping the list were 172 barangay public safety officers (BPSO) or “tanods” have tested positive.

The number forms part of the more than 300 barangay officials and employees which all tested positive for drug abuse based on the June 22, 2016 result submitted by QCADAAC.

“This is very alarming considering that BPSOs are the force multiplier of the police in ensuring peace and order in our communities,” Belmonte said.

Aside from the BPSOs, also tested positive are two kagawads (village councilors), 52 street sweepers or ‘paleros,’ seven barangay health workers, 15 drivers, 15 utility workers, 10 community brigade workers, 11 barangay staff, one member of the task force on youth development, three from the violence against women and children, eight from the lupon ng tagapamayapa (peace council) and seven fire volunteers.

As of June 22, of the city’s total 142 barangays, 106 underwent the drug testing. The figure represents a completion rate of 74.64 percent.

At the press conference, Belmonte disclosed that a sizeable amount of the supplemental budget of the city government would be set aside for the building of additional infrastructure for drug rehabilitation.

According to Belmonte, the request for increased funding was necessary in order for the city government to effectively implement its drug treatment and rehabilitation program, including construction of additional rehabilitation centers for drug dependents in each of the city’s six districts.

She said the city government, through QCADAAC, was spending at least Php400 a day to rehabilitate a drug user.

“This is a big investment for Quezon City,” the Vice Mayor said.

Earlier, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista unveiled the city government’s plan to build more rehabilitation centers to accommodate suspected drug personalities in the city who had agreed to voluntarily surrender to authorities and pledged to stop any involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Belmonte also disclosed that the Department of Health (DOH) has already approved the request for additional beds at the Tahanan, or the QC Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Center in Barangay Payatas.

“Our request for additional 150 beds has already been approved by the DOH,” said Belmonte.

To date, the Tahanan has an existing bed capacity of 150.

72 QC cops sacked over alleged drug links, torture activities

Published August 15, 2016  By JOSEPH TRISTAN ROXAS, GMA News


A total of 72 police officers from the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) with alleged links to the illegal drugs trade and involvement in torture activities have been relieved from duty.

On Monday, QCPD head Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar presented the list in a news conference at the QCPD headquarters in Camp Karingal where 69 cops are allegedly involved in illegal drugs and three are charged in violation of the Anti-Torture Act.

The police personnel came from 11 QC police stations — the most from the Police Station 3 with 15, followed by Police Station 9 with 13,m and Police Station 10 with 10 — and one assigned to the Anti-Carnapping Unit.

National Capital Region Police Office head Chief Supt. Oscar Albayalde also joined Eleazar in the news conference.

Police Chief Inspector Armando Mariano Reyes is the highest ranking official included on the list.

Eleazar told GMA News Online that the 69 were relieved upon the recommendation of their station commanders.

“Hindi na makakatulong, may bahid na,” Eleazar said in a phone interview.

Meanwhile, Eleazar said the 72 police personnel will still be subject to investigation and validation as they abide by the directive of PNP chief  Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa to cleanse their ranks.

“In our own sound judgment, we will subject them to investigation and validation to make sure that the ongoing change we effected will be to the maximum, to attain the change expected by all of us, so that the people of Quezon City will feel more secure about their police,” he said in the conference.

The relieved personnel will be re-assigned to the District Headquarters Support Unit in Camp Karingal where “floating” police officers are assigned.

“Since due process is mandatory for dismissing these personnel, assigning them to menial tasks within QCPD Headquarters in the meantime, is in line with the mandate of our Chief PNP, and directives from our [Regional Director] Albayade,” Eleazar said.

Last July, 88 members of the anti-illegal drugs division of the QCPD were also relieved from duty over their alleged involvement in illegal drugs.

Eleazar said 17 of the 88 have been cleared of any anomaly while two have been transferred to the PNP Personnel Holding and Accounting Office in Camp Crame.

“Investigation continues on the remaining 69 personnel from the original 88 who were relieved last July, and will be conducted with the same thoroughness on the 72 additional personnel for a total of 141 personnel,” Eleazar said.

“We assure the people of QC, as well as our President and PNP Chief, that those found guilty will be dismissed from service. We will file appropriate charges and dismissal proceedings immediately,” he added.

Eleazar mentioned that police personnel cleared of any illegal drug involvement or any anomaly will undergo a three-month re-training and re-orientation program to reshape their attitudes towards police service. — RSJ, GMA News


Duterte: Radio DJ and her boyfriend Emilio Lim were caught in possession of P3 million worth of drugs.

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Radio DJ Karen Bordador and her boyfriend Emilio Lim were arrested after a buy-bust operation in Pasig City.

According to a report on TV Patrol, approximately P3 million worth of ecstasy, marijuana, and marijuana oil were found at a condo unit in Pasig City on Saturday, August 13. Also found at the unit were drug paraphernalia, money, and a money counting machine.

Senior Superintendent Tomas Apolinario told TV Patrol, “Itong operation na ito ay bunga ng direktiba ng ating chief PNP (Philippine National Police), na sugpuin ang ilegal na droga dito sa mga high-end clubs tsaka sa mga bars.

(This operation is due to a directive from our chief PNP, that we should suppress the illegal drugs that can be found at high-end clubs and bars.)

Siya [Lim] ang itinuturo na malaking nagsusupply sa mga nagtutulak sa mga clubs sa Makati at sa BGC (He [Lim] is said to be a big supplier among those who push drugs at clubs in Makati and BGC),” added Apolinario, in a report on 24 Oras. He said that the customers in those areas range from students and teenagers to wealthy people and celebrities.

“Ito ang mga bumibili sa kanila (These are the people who are buying drugs from them),” he said on TV Patrol.

In the same 24 Oras report, Bordador can be heard saying: “Wala po akong ginagawa… bumisita lang ako.” (I wasn’t doing anything… I just visited.)

According to a report, a Filipino-American caught selling ecstasy at Bonifacio Global City told the police about Lim. – Rappler.com

Small scale? P28B in ore shipped out


mar mining 28b

SURIGAO CITY—Government records showed that nearly 2 million metric tons of nickel ore worth billions of pesos was extracted by a controversial mining firm in Tubay, Agusan del Norte province, whose politically connected owners are being publicly accused of plunder but have not been formally charged or investigated.

SR Metals Inc. (SRMI) and its subsidiary firms, San R Mining and Galeo Equipment and Mining Corp., shipped some 1.8 million MT of nickel from August 2006 to September 2007, according to records obtained by the Inquirer from the Philippine Ports Authority and the Mines and Geosciences Bureau.

The figure, critics said, represented a colossal disparity with what SRMI and its sister companies—then operating as small-scale mines—were allowed to extract and sell: 50,000 MT each per year, or 150,000 MT combined annual output for the three firms.

But after years of litigation and what many perceived as a slap-on-the-wrist penalty, SRMI paid P7 million in fines for over-extraction in 2007. No government agency has yet taken SRMI and its sister companies to court for the massive shipment of ore, which amounted roughly to P28 billion.

Appropriate time

Reached for comment, SRMI vice president for public and media affairs Ryan Anthony Culima said the company would respond to “these issues” at an appropriate time.

Last year, the Supreme Court rejected SRMI’s interpretation of the ore extraction limit. SRMI insisted that the 50,000-MT limit pertained to nickel and cobalt minerals in their purest form and excluded soil and other materials.

Upholding an earlier decision by the Court of Appeals (CA), the high court described SRMI’s interpretation as destructive to the environment.

Lawyer Elvin Grana, a legal counsel for a Butuan City-based businessman who is suing SRMI for a separate case involving royalty payments, said the Supreme Court ruling became final last month when the high court issued an entry of judgment.

What’s lacking?

“For all intents and purposes, the Supreme Court has decided on this case with finality,” Grana told the Inquirer on the phone from his office in Manila. “What’s lacking here is making SRMI accountable.”

Grana recalled that his client, Rodney Basiana, had filed a case in the Ombudsman seeking an investigation into SRMI and its owners for plunder. Filed in late 2006, he said, the case was shelved by the Ombudsman because the Department of Justice (DOJ) then issued a legal opinion favoring SRMI’s interpretation of the ore extraction limit.

Reached for comment, Basiana, who asserts that SRMI owes him more than P1 billion in royalties being the original claimant of the SRMI mine site, said the recent Supreme Court decision should pave the way for the Ombudsman to resume its investigation into SRMI.

Environmental advocates in Caraga Region voiced the same call.

Rev. Peter Vargas, coconvenor of environment group Caraga Watch, said they were willing to intervene in the SRMI case as interested parties “if no one dares to confront this powerful mining company.”

Powerful foe

But Vargas and Basiana, the businessman, admitted that taking on SRMI was an uphill battle, noting that the company’s owners were known supporters of the ruling Liberal Party (LP).

“I am now starting to believe the boast of Mr. Eric Gutierrez that he is malakas with the Liberal Party, particularly with Secretary Mar Roxas,” Basiana said. “Or is it that Erice is an influential member of the LP?”

Basiana was referring to SRMI chief executive officer Francis Enrico “Eric” Gutierrez and Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice—an LP stalwart—who was listed as the firm’s president when the plunder complaint was filed. Erice has said he had divested himself of his shares in the company.

Former SRMI employees said Gutierrez bankrolled President Aquino’s 2010 campaign in Northern Mindanao, and was appointed LP head in Caraga Region for a time. Gutierrez was also described in media reports as the owner of the helicopter used to take pictures of the so-called “Hacienda Binay” of Vice President Jejomar Binay.

Vargas of Caraga Watch said the connections were too glaring to ignore.

“Nothing has been done. Is it because the owners are closely affiliated with the Liberal Party?” Vargas said.

Philippines: Hidilyn Diaz wins silver medal in Rio Olympics

Rio 2016: Hidilyn Diaz ends Philippine Olympic medal drought with weightlifting silver

Philippines gets 3rd silver medal in Olympics

ABS-CBN News      Aug 08 2016

The number 13 has turned out to be a lucky number for the Philippines after weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz broke a 20-year medal drought for the country after winning a silver medal in the Rio Olympics on Monday morning.

Diaz, 25, one of 13 Philippine athletes competing in Rio, finally won a medal after three Olympic stints. Her first was in the 2008 Beijing Games followed by the 2012 London Games where she also served as the flag-bearer.

It is only the Philippines’ third silver medal in the Olympics, and Diaz’s silver is the first outside of boxing.

Light flyweight boxer Mansueto ‘Onyok’ Velasco won the silver in the 1996 Atlanta Games.

The Philippines’ first silver medal was won by featherweight boxer Anthony Villanueva in the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

The Philippines has won 7 bronze medals in the Olympics for a grand total so far of 10 medals (3 silvers) since 1928.

The Philippines has yet to win a gold medal in the Olympics. Bowler Arianne Cerdena won the gold in the 1988 Seoul Olympics when bowling was a demonstration sport.

Duterte – Lanao Del Sur: 3 Mayors Surrender, avoid SHOOT-TO-KILL police option

Note: Five mayors have now been named (Loot, Espinosa, Molok, Abinal and Sangki).

Three mayors surrender, admit involvement in drug trade

ABS-CBN News  Aug 05, 2016 

(UPDATED) Three mayors have surrendered to Philippine National Police Chief, Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa after learning that they were already in President Rodrigo Duterte’s list of drug suspects.

Maguing, Lanao del Sur Mayor Mamaulan Abinal Molok and former Marantao, Lanao del Sur Mayor Muhammad Ali Abo Abinal have admitted peddling drugs and vowed to change their ways. Mayor Rasul Sangki of Ampatuan, also surrendered to the PNP Chief.

“They already decided na magbagong buhay, at tumulong sa problema sa droga. Why run if you can help (They already decided to change their ways and help stop the drug problem),” Dela Rosa told reporters Friday, as he presented the local officials in Camp Crame.

“Talagang involved sila kaya sila nagsurrender (They were really involved that’s why they surrendered),” he added.

Abinal, for his part, said he is now supporting Duterte and Dela Rosa’s war against drugs.

“Willing ako pumunta dito, suportahan ko programa ng mahal na President Rodrigo Duterte at Chief PNP General Bato. Lahat ng suporta nami’y willing kami (I willingly went here to express my support for President Duterte and General Bato’s [anti-drug] program,” Abinal said, saying he was involved in the illegal drug trade back in 2000 to 2002.

Molok said he will also urge other suspects to surrender.

“Sa lahat ng abot ng makakaya ko, tutulong ako sa pagsugpo ng droga (I will do my best to help stop the drug trade),” he added.

Dela Rosa said the mayors were “down lines” of the so-called “Marimar,” Maguing, Lanao Del Sur former Mayor Johaira Macabuat, who was recently arrested in Cagayan de Oro.

Dela Rosa said the mayors were tied to drug trade in Quiapo and other parts of the country and were not operating in their own municipalities.

“They told me they were not involved in the distribution of drugs in their municipalities,” Dela Rosa said.

The two public officials were turned over to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) after being presented to media.

“We will extract whatever we can from them for reference. We will subject them to some sort of custodial investigation,” said Dela Rosa.
