P79-M worth of checks, cash found by PH Marines in Maute lair

Members of the Philippine Marines on Monday recovered P79 million in cash and checks from a house that used to be a sniper position of the Maute Group in Marawi City.

A total of P27 million worth of checks and P52 million worth of cash in bundles were discovered in one of the houses in Barangay (village) Mapandi during the clearing operations of some troops of the Marine Battalion Landing Team 7 on Monday.

There will be an investigation as to where the money came from, Ltc. Jo-ar Herrera, spokesperson of the Army’s 1st Infantry Division, said in a press briefing Tuesday.

“We will not speculate here. We will wait for the facts after the investigation,” he said.

The Marawi crisis reached its 15th day on Tuesday and nearly 200 people have been killed and thousands have fled.

But the recovered cash and checks may indicate that the Maute group is on the run.

“The government troops are sustaining… The recovery of cash indicates the Maute is running and the troops are pressing in,” Herrera said.

The gunbattle started with the military’s botched raid against Abu Sayyaf senior leader Isnilon Hapilon but reinforcements from the Maute Group came.

Hapilon is also reportedly the emir of the Islamic State in Southeast Asia. IDL/rga

 

P79-M in cash, checks found in fallen Maute stronghold

Report from Chiara Zambrano, ABS-CBN News

Jun 06 2017 

MANILA – (UPDATED) State forces discovered Monday at least P79 million in cash and checks in a house in Marawi City after retaking a stronghold of the Maute fighters they have been battling since last month.

The Philippine Marines first found P52.2 million in cash at a house located near the extremists’ machine gun nest in the Mapandi area.

Of this amount, P52 million was wrapped in plastic bundles while P200,000 was stashed in envelopes.
The troops then found checks worth P27 million in the same house, bringing the total amount of the haul to P79 million.

Authorities said the owner of the house was likely among the 200,000 residents who fled from Marawi after Maute and other bandit groups attacked the city on May 23.

Investigators are now looking into the cash and check’s paper trail to confirm if the money is connected to terrorist operations.

President Duterte earlier said that Maute terrorists are being funded by foreign terror groups and illegal drug money.

The fighting in Marawi has prompted Duterte to place the entire Mindanao island under martial rule.

A presidential spokesman said 120 militants have died in the battle, along with 38 government forces. The authorities have put the civilian death toll at between 20 and 38.

House committee junks Duterte impeachment complaint for insufficiency in substance

rappler duterte impeachment

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – After roughly 4 hours of debates and one closed-door session, the House justice committee voted to reject the impeachment complaint filed against President Rodrigo Duterte.

The committee members said during the hearing on Monday, May 15, that the impeachment complaint filed by opposition lawmaker and Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano was sufficient in form but insufficient in substance.

Out of the 50 members of the House justice committee, 42 were present during Monday’s hearing. The voting was as follows:

  • 41 voted the complaint was sufficient in form (only ABS Representative Eugene de Vera voted it was insufficient in form)
  • all 42 voted the complaint was insufficient in substance

This, in effect, means the first impeachment complaint filed against the President has been dismissed by the committee.

Alejano wants Duterte impeached for his alleged involvement in the Davao Death Squad, the ongoing bloody war against drugs, Duterte’s supposed unexplained wealth, the “ghost” employees hired by the Davao City government when he was mayor, and the President’s approach to the sea row with China over the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) and Benham Rise.

But during the hearing, Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas grilled Alejano in a long interpellation about the complainant’s personal knowledge of the accusations he made against the President.

The Majority Leader based his questioning on Alejano’s verification of the impeachment complaint, which reads: “I/We hereby confirm and affirm that the material allegations made therein are true and correct of my/our own personal knowledge and as culled from authentic records.”

Alejano conceded he did not personally see the murders mentioned in the complaint and he does not have personal information on Duterte’s financial transactions. But he argued that he based his accusations against Duterte on authentic records.

“I have no personal knowledge as a witness but I have personal knowledge as a complainant based on the records,” said Alejano, an ex-soldier and former coup plotter.

Alejano also rejected Fariñas’ argument that he is merely riding on the propaganda that extrajudicial killings are being done in the name of Duterte’s drug war.

“So kung propaganda ang issue ng mga patayan ngayon, hindi pala seryoso itong issue ng patayan na libo-libo na. So kung tingin nila ay issue lang ito na ‘di importante, then we deserve the kind of policies and the President that we have right now,” said Alejano in a chance interview while the closed-door session was ongoing.

(So if the news of killings right now are just propaganda, does that mean it isn’t a serious matter that thousands of Filipinos have already died? So if they think this issue is not important, then we deserve the kind of policies and the President that we have right now.)

“So sino ang tatayo sa mga mahihirap na biktima na hindi kayang depensahan ang sarili [nila]? it should be the Congress, the representative of the people,” he added.

(So who would stand up for the rights of the poor victims who are unable to defend themselves? It should be the Congress, the representative of the people.)

Duterte enjoys a strong legislative shield in the House, where he counts at least 267 out of 293 lawmakers as his allies.

A total of 121 lawmakers are also members of the President’s party, the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban).

Oriental Mindoro 2nd District Representative Reynaldo Umali, justice committee chairman, is also a PDP-Laban member. – Rappler.com

Sen. Teofisto Guingona III Monday night released copies of Napoles’ two affidavits to the media, but said he has not read the contents.

“In the spirit of transparency and the search of truth, and in line with my commitment to uphold the public interest, we are going to release to the media and the public and to my fellow senators, the copies of these two affidavits,” Guingona said in a press conference.

“Let the document speak for itself,’’ he added.

“We will wait for the Benhur Luy files. I understand it should be submitted by Wednesday, and then we will evaluate what we have, then we will consult the members, then we will make the necessary hearing,” he said.

By telling the truth, Napoles said she expected to step on the toes of many. “The truth hurts… but the truth will set you free,’’ she said in page one of her affidavit.

After months of prayer and reflection, she said she wished to shed light on the pork scam and Malampaya fund mess.

She said she was hurt by charges naming her as the pork barrel queen and mastermind, and describing her as “most guilty,’’ “center of controversy’’ and “architect of the PDAF scam.’’

“I am not the mastermind of the pork barrel because I didn’t start this; this has long been practice or system,’’ she said. And neither is she “the most guilty,’’ she added.

In fact, the agents of lawmakers were more knowledgeable of the scheme, Napoles said.

Specifically, it was through then Batanes Rep. Florencio Abad that she learned that she needed an NGO or cooperative to be able to deal with the agencies, she said.

Napoles named a certain Ruth “Allen’’ who helped her former aide Niel Tan in Congress, and one Catherine Mae “Maya’’ Santos who guided her in transacting with the Department of Agriculture and the Senate.

Guingona, whose staff picked up copies of the affidavits from the Department of Justice, said he would await the submission of Benhur Luy files before deciding when to resume the inquiry into the pork scam.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima had twice asked for an extension for the submission of Napoles’ expanded affidavit. Her last deadline was Monday.

“I presume since we have been waiting for this for so long, that this is it,” Guingona said.

On resuming Senate investigation into the scam, he said that he could not yet set a definite date because they are still waiting for more information and documents that have previously been issued subpoenas. With a report from TJ Burgonio, Philippine Daily Inquirer

FUND DISBURSEMENT BREAKDOWN: SSS -Seven Senator Snakes (mga hayop sa damo) channeled hundreds of millions of pesos to Napoles NGOs for Bataan, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Quezon and Bulacan. bong revilla “pogi”, enrile “tanda”, jinggoy estrada “kuya/sexy”, bong bong marcos, gringo honasan, loren legarda and tito sotto – JAIL awaits you. Mga kagalanggalang na sa serbisyong publiko, pera pala ng bayan, ipinagbubulsa nyo. Mahiya naman kayo. Magbigti nalang kayo.

Jess Diaz (The Philippine Star) September 14, 2013 (ABRIDGED)

Based on LGU annual audit reports (AARs) posted on the COA website and the senators’ fund allocations and project listings shown on the website of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), a select group of towns in Bataan, Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, Quezon, and Bulacan was chosen to receive pork barrel funds.

For instance, the 2011 AAR for Pilar in Bataan shows that the town received P20 million in PDAF from Sen. Vicente Sotto III and P10 million each from Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

The money ended up with People’s Organization for Progress and Development Foundation, Inc. (POPDFI), the Napoles NGO that Luy used to head before he blew the whistle on the pork barrel scam.

Despite the irregularities in 2011, the following year, 2012, Estrada and Marcos, joined by Senators Ramon Revilla Jr. and Loren Legarda, allocated a total of P35 million for the town.

Pilar received P5 million from Estrada, while Revilla, Legarda and Marcos each gave P10 million. Just like the year before, the 2012 funds ended up with POPDFI.

Also last year, Dinalupihan, another town in Bataan, was the beneficiary-recipient of P23 million from Estrada, P5 million from Legarda and P10 million from Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile, for a total of P38 million.

The P38 million was used for the purchase of farming packages costing from P20,500 to P36,450 each.

For the first time, the audit findings mentioned the names of Marcos and Legarda, who did not figure in the COA special audit report on PDAF disbursements for 2007-2009, except for a minor entry for Legarda.

In Nueva Ecija, the town of San Antonio received a total of P90 million from several senators last year.

The funds were transferred to Kaupdanan (Samahan) ng mga Mangunguma (Magsasaka) Foundation, Ginintuang Alay sa Magsasaka Foundation, and Countrywide and Rural Economic Development Foundation (CAREDF). Kaupdanan and CAREDF, like POPDFI, are NGOs linked to Napoles.

Though the audit report did not name the senators who gave the P90 million, the DBM website shows that San Antonio was the beneficiary of P15 million each from Estrada and Sotto, and P10 million each from Legarda, Marcos and Revilla.

Also in 2012, several unnamed senators gave the town of Calasiao in Pangasinan a total of P30 million, which ended up with Kaupdanan.

The DBM website shows that among the senators who disbursed funds to Calasiao were Marcos, who allocated P10 million, and Sotto, who gave P5 million.

Sual, another Pangasinan town, received P47 million from unnamed senators. Like in Calasiao, the money ended up with Kaupdanan.

The DBM website shows that Estrada allocated P20 million to Sual, while Marcos gave P10 million.

Balungao, another town in Pangasinan, was the beneficiary of P10 million from Legarda and P5 million from Marcos for vermiculture or earthworm-growing projects.

San Carlos City, also in Pangasinan, received P10 million from Legarda and another P10 million from Sotto last year for vermiculture projects. There is no mention of the funds in the auditors’ report.

Revilla allocated P15 million to a fourth Pangasinan town, Umigan, while Sotto gave it P5 million. No such funds were mentioned in the auditors’ report.

Marcos gave the town of Bulacan, Bulacan P10 million. Auditors apparently did not find the money in their annual audit of the town.

San Leonardo, another Nueva Ecija town, received P5 million from Enrile. The funds ended up with Ginintuang Alay sa Magsasaka Foundation. The same irregularities in the transfer of funds to an NGO were noted.

The DBM website shows that San Leonardo was given P5 million each by Sotto and Revilla for organic farming projects.

Tens of millions of PDAF were also given to General Nakar, Lucena City, Quezon, and Sariaya in the province of Quezon, and Javier in Leyte, but audit reports on these LGUs have not been posted in the COA website.

Among other senators, Estrada and Sotto have given funds to Quezon LGUs. In San Antonio, one Quezon town that has already been audited, Estrada allocated P7 million for organic farming.

According to the COA special report for pork barrel funds disbursed in 2007-2009, 12 senators and more than 180 congressmen gave a total of P6.2 billion to 82 NGOs.

Of that amount, NGOs associated with Napoles cornered about P2.1 billion.

Estrada, Enrile, Revilla, Sotto, and Sen. Gregorio Honasan gave more than P1 billion to Napoles NGOs.

Honasan has not been mentioned in the 2012 LGU audit reports since auditors in some towns in Isabela, Batangas and Marinduque that received funds from him have not posted their findings.

Aside from these towns, he gave P30 million last year to NCMF for livelihood projects for Muslims in Taguig, Manila, Quezon City, Valenzuela, Caloocan, and Navotas in Metro Manila, and Subic, Castillejos, San Marcelino, and San Antonio in Zambales.

In 2011, NCMF handled a total of P96.5 million in PDAF. The audit report does not identify the lawmaker-fund givers.

Sen. Teofisto Guingona III Monday night released copies of Napoles’ two affidavits to the media, but said he has not read the contents.

“In the spirit of transparency and the search of truth, and in line with my commitment to uphold the public interest, we are going to release to the media and the public and to my fellow senators, the copies of these two affidavits,” Guingona said in a press conference.

“Let the document speak for itself,’’ he added.

“We will wait for the Benhur Luy files. I understand it should be submitted by Wednesday, and then we will evaluate what we have, then we will consult the members, then we will make the necessary hearing,” he said.

By telling the truth, Napoles said she expected to step on the toes of many. “The truth hurts… but the truth will set you free,’’ she said in page one of her affidavit.

After months of prayer and reflection, she said she wished to shed light on the pork scam and Malampaya fund mess.

She said she was hurt by charges naming her as the pork barrel queen and mastermind, and describing her as “most guilty,’’ “center of controversy’’ and “architect of the PDAF scam.’’

“I am not the mastermind of the pork barrel because I didn’t start this; this has long been practice or system,’’ she said. And neither is she “the most guilty,’’ she added.

In fact, the agents of lawmakers were more knowledgeable of the scheme, Napoles said.

Specifically, it was through then Batanes Rep. Florencio Abad that she learned that she needed an NGO or cooperative to be able to deal with the agencies, she said.

Napoles named a certain Ruth “Allen’’ who helped her former aide Niel Tan in Congress, and one Catherine Mae “Maya’’ Santos who guided her in transacting with the Department of Agriculture and the Senate.

Guingona, whose staff picked up copies of the affidavits from the Department of Justice, said he would await the submission of Benhur Luy files before deciding when to resume the inquiry into the pork scam.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima had twice asked for an extension for the submission of Napoles’ expanded affidavit. Her last deadline was Monday.

“I presume since we have been waiting for this for so long, that this is it,” Guingona said.

On resuming Senate investigation into the scam, he said that he could not yet set a definite date because they are still waiting for more information and documents that have previously been issued subpoenas. With a report from TJ Burgonio, Philippine Daily Inquirer

Pacquiao pleads for life of convicted OFW Mary Jane Veloso #SaveMaryJaneVeloso

We salute Pacman for speaking up for Mary Jane – KMU (Kilusang Mayo Uno)
We salute Sarangani congressman and eight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao for calling on Indonesian President Joko Widodo to stop the impending execution of Mary Jane Veloso, the Filipina who was sentenced to death by an Indonesian court for drug trafficking in 2010.
Pacman is showing us that we Filipinos, as a people and as a nation, can unite behind Mary Jane in the same way that we are uniting behind him. Such unity is most needed now in the face of the Indonesian Sleman district court’s rejection of the second appeal for judicial review of Mary Jane’s case.
Manny is showing us that no schedule is too busy and no impending fight is too important for us to not contribute to the call to stop Mary Jane’s impending execution. Indeed, we cannot go on with our lives and ignore the fact that a fellow worker and fellow Filipino may lose her life any time soon.
The greatest Filipino boxer of all time has again shown himself to be an ally of the Filipino workers and people. He has championed our call for a significant wage hike for Filipino workers and has helped us in our various activities which aimed at directly helping ordinary Filipinos.
Manny’s most public appeal to Indonesian Pres. Widodo stands in stark contrast to the lethargic and merely cosmetic attempts of Pres. Noynoy Aquino to make it appear that he is on Mary Jane’s side. Manny’s brave move for Mary Jane should be emulated by Filipino politicians and personalities now. please tweet ‪#‎savemaryjaneveloso‬
