World Bank: Loan to Supreme Court high risk

Final tranche canceled due to irregular expenses

The Supreme Court under the watch of Chief Justice Renato Corona has been weighed and found wanting.

The World Bank has uncovered questionable procurements and disbursements in the high court in connection with the Judicial Reform Support Project (JRSP). The project, partly funded by a World Bank loan of $21.9 million (P930.75 million at an exchange rate of P42.50 to $1), was designed to restore efficiency in the dispensation of justice in the country.

In an aide memoire, the World Bank said that since Corona assumed his post in mid-2010, progress in reforming the judiciary “has been rated unsatisfactory,” with “implementation delays and additional work required for smooth project closing.”

The document detailed the results of a fiduciary review conducted by a World Bank task team on Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2011, through discussions with justices of the high court and field visits to courts all over the country.

“The review discloses that the fiduciary environment pertaining to JRSP implementation has so deteriorated that the task team now rates the JRSP as a ‘high risk’ and ‘unsatisfactory’ on project management, project procurement and financial management dimensions, and observes that project financial statements can no longer be relied upon,” the World Bank said.

The review uncovered, among others, “inaccurate/incomplete information” on the project’s financial management report, “diminished existing internal check-and-balance mechanism,” purchase of information technology equipment outside of the agreed procurement plan, and the practice of borrowing funds from the loan for the justices’ foreign travels, paid to a travel agency owned by lawyer Estelito Mendoza.

The World Bank is now demanding a refund of $199,900, covering “70 payments” deemed “ineligible” or unauthorized under the terms of the JRSP, by Jan. 31.

Review trigger

The World Bank initiated the fiduciary review when Corona was already appointed Chief Justice by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo despite an election ban.

It said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

“The project result indicators depict achievements in several areas, but significant missed opportunities due to capacity and coordination constraints and delays in decision-making, procurement and contracting,” it said.

Included in the “ineligible” purchases were the printing supply of the Court Reporter’s Case Index, purchase of laptop computers, speaker’s fee for seminars, registration fee of justices attending international conferences, and foreign travels of justices and their staff (including airfare, hotel accommodations and meal allowances).

‘Black prop’

Asked to comment, Ramon Esguerra, a spokesperson of Corona’s legal team, on Saturday said the accusation was “not in any way connected to any of the articles of impeachment” against the Chief Justice.

He said it was the high court as a whole, and not Corona alone, that should respond to the accusation.

“Two days before the opening of the trial and there’s this story?” Esguerra told the Inquirer by phone. “The barrage of black propaganda has not ceased. In fact, it’s now coming out with greater intensity.”

Esguerra said media reports on Corona’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, as well as the latest on the supposed fund mismanagement at the high court, were all part of “a pattern of harassment intended to demonize the Chief Justice in the eyes of the public.”

“It’s very unfair,” he protested.

Corona himself said “it’s hard to answer that [accusation]” because he had yet to read the World Bank aide memoire.

The Inquirer sought his comment after a Tridentine Mass held late Saturday afternoon at the Supreme Court grounds, the last of novena Masses for the embattled Chief Justice.

Corona attended the Mass with his wife and more than 100 sympathizers, including former Philippine Commission on Good Government Chair Camilo Sabio.

The Chief Justice also said he had yet to decide whether he would attend the opening of his impeachment trial on Monday, contradicting Esguerra’s statement that he would show up.

One-man show

According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office, and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.

The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.

“Lack of appropriate segregation of duties of key officials involved in the JRSP has created a breakdown of the control environment, increased fiduciary and reputation risks, and led to irregular/inappropriate procurement and expenditure decisions,” it said.

Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

It said this arrangement, among others, “present[ed] a conflict of interest and eliminate[d] internal checks and balances applicable to the procurement and disbursement functions.”

4 project components

The World Bank approved the loan in 2003 (Loan No. 7191-PH) “to assist the borrower in developing a more effective and accessible judiciary that would foster public trust and confidence through the implementation of the Supreme Court’s Action Program for Judicial Reform (APJR).”

The JRSP is the World Bank’s term for its financial support for the APJR, the brainchild of then Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., who envisioned the much-needed judicial reforms to be bankrolled by combined resources from the national budget, the judiciary’s own funds and financing from development partners.

The four project components involved improving case adjudication and access to justice (i.e., mobile courts); enhancing institutional integrity (i.e., Code of Ethics and related training of judges and judicial personnel); strengthening the institutional capacity of the judiciary (i.e., e-Library); and support for the reform of the judicial system and for the high court’s PMO.

The judicial reform covered six key areas: judicial system procedures, institutional development, human resources development, integrity infrastructure development, access to justice by the poor, and reform support systems.

The World Bank has participated in all six areas; six other development partners have varying degrees of exposure to the APJR.

The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of Chief Justice Reynato Puno. But the World Bank extended the closing date twice—first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months (until June 30, 2012).

But due to questions over the fiscal discipline of the tribunal in adhering to loan stipulations, the World Bank canceled the final tranche of the loan amounting to $0.5 million.

Thus far, the tribunal has spent $16.3 million (76 percent of the revised loan amount of $21.4 million, after deducting the $0.5 million). With reports from Christian V. Esguerra and Philip C. Tubeza

    Now we see the corrupt practices of Corona and his spokesperson, Marquez.  It is not the Phil. government that is reporting this anomaly but the Word Bank itself.  This is another reasons why Corona should be put in jail. Let Corona ni Gloria suffer from his evil ways.  Let him join his master Gloria magnanakaw.

        It’s all over the news even international. World bank will comment if it’s not true but since they don’t, this is true then. I saw the letter to SC it was signed by Matthew Stephens, World Bank Acting Country Director. Rappler News has pictures just google it. Of course pandak brigade will not believe this they are paid to close their eyes just for the dirty money, the same money which should go help the poor and fed the hungry. Karma will be with you!

      • paitoon707

        hindi isang bansa ang kalaban ni Corona kungdi mga yellow army lang that is only a drop  in the bucket compared to the whole population of the Philippines.  Even the international community are waiting for the outcome of Corona’s impeachment.  They are eagerly waiting if the rule of law still prevails in the country.

    Midas observation that it was not only during CJ Corona’s term as CJ that this authorization for payments for foreign travels, hotel accomodations and meals were drawn from the WB Loan was relevant.  Which brings us to the the issue that everyone of them, (maybe except for one or two jurists) are pampered crooks.  It zeoes into to the issue that the attack against CJ Corona is an attack against the Supreme Court .  Corrupt jurists breed a corrupt Court.

    In Corona’s case, THE ISSUE IS INTEGRITY.

    Even the Chief Justice survive the impeachment trial, he still still guilty in eyes of the people.

    This will definitely fall under one of the articles of impeachment specifically on corruption. Using borrowed money not for intended purpose is certainly corruption.

    LEFT AND RIGHT ANG PANDURUGAS NI THIEF JUSTICE CORONA AT GAY MIDAS MARQUEZ SA TAUMBAYAN.

    MAY SUHOL NA FROM PANDAK, PATI BA NAMAN ANG WORLD BANK LOAN TO RESTORE EFFICIENCY IN THE DISPENSATION OF JUSTICE IN THE SUPREME COURT, PINAG-INTERESAN PANG NAKAWAN.

    THE WORST THING IS THAT THE WORLD BANK WANTS A LOAN REFUND FROM SC SINCE THE REFORM PROGRESS IS “UNSATISFACTORY” UNDER CORONA’S WATCH BECAUSE HE WAS TOO BUSY TAKING CARE OF PANDAK’S NEEDS LIKE THE TRO.

    THIEF JUSTICE CORONA IS NOTHING BUT A KLEPTOMANIAC, A LIAR AND A CHEATER JUST LIKE GLORIA MAKAPAL ARROYO AND BURJER ABALOS.

    HE IS A DISGRACE NOT ONLY TO THE SUPREME COURT, BUT TO THE ENTIRE FILIPINO NATION AND PEOPLE.

    HE DOES NOT ONLY DESERVE TO BE IMPEACHED, BUT ALSO DESERVES TO ROT IN JAIL FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

    • paitoon707

    “practice of borrowing funds from the loan for the justices’ foreign travels, paid to a travel agency owned by lawyer Estelito Mendoza.”

    Is this the primary reason why a mere crap of letter can go against the rule of Res judicata?

    “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

    Is this the primary reason why atty. midas marquez has become a rottweiler?

    Once I will be able to show their falsity during the impeachment trial, public opinion will be in my favor and will pity me for having been accused falsely. On the other hand the credibility of the prosecutors will b shattered!

    The World Bank- a neutral, independent body at that in this discursive issue- has found the SC under Corona wanting in honesty and credibility….  This is the Supreme Court we’re talking about.  And yet it’s infested with the same pattern of corruption reminiscent of GMA.  This is one more Achilles’ heel for Corona, and again the deafening sounds of “resign” echo in the air.

    SC Chief Corona should not resign.  He should fight to the end to prove to the world that he is innocent.  The eight article of impeachment are weak so Corona still has the upper hand in the case.

    • orangec5

      He should not resign para mas marami pang makakalkal na baho galing sa kanya at ng mga naging kaugnayan nya kay Gloria. Corona just don’t get it. Ang problema kasi sa SC sa tingin nila mga “Presidente” lang ang pwede ma-impeach at “Untouchables” ang tingin nila sa mga sarili nila. Regarding the evidences, weak or not, boils down to whether each senator’s decision is favorable for them in the upcoming midterm elections. Kumbaga walang kawala si Corona dito. And unlike Pnoy, Corona is unlikely to have a “people power” arsenal behind his sleeves should he get impeached. Poor Corona. Tinanggap nya kasi ang pwesto eh obvious naman kahit itanggi ng mga manhid na he was appointed para inisin si Pnoy. He deserves it.

    …kaya nga nagpamisa si thief corona kung papaano nya malulusutan sa dami ng mga problemang hinaharap nya. Ang isang dahilan daw ng impeachment nya ay ang decision sa Luisita hacienda ng SC. Masyadong illogical ang reasoning power nya, nagiging emotional na si thief corona, hindi na logical ang mga reasoning nya. For the sake of the credibility of SC, take a vacation para maka focus ka sa problema mo, baka pati ang ibang problema ng SC maapecktuhan dahil emotional ka na ngayon! Kalimutan mo muna yung master GMA mo, focus ka muna to your own problems and take a leave as thief of justice of SC para makapagconcentrate ka!

    Yan ng hirap ngayon jan sa Pilipinas. Sinabi ng IBP “we support Corona”  & sabi ni  retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz “I support corona”.

    Thus this mean that IBP and CBCP supports the corrupt practices of the supreme court?

    Kaya nagtataka ako na kahit dito sa southern california umabot itong balitang ito kahapon (jan 13).

    This loan was released to SC year 2003. Iba pa ang mga hukom ng panahon na yon..

    The loan of the SC from the World Bank was the only one singled-out as high risk here.   If media will dig deeper,  they will realize that high risk loans in the list  of  World Bank will consume hundreds of pages of their newspapers.  Baka ma-acquit na si Corona,  hindi pa tapos listahan nila.

    Fair reporting lang sana para ma-educate ang mambabasa,  wag mag-umpisa ng intriga…

    We need to read the entire original report of the WB first.

    They need to publish the entire original report.

    Who prepared the report and who requested the study?

    It is a known fact that even the WB is NOT immune to any corruption.

    This is the problem with most of the Filipino people.

    “Sinabi lng ng isang puti, hangang-hanga at paniwalang-paniwala na tayong lahat!”

    We never get over our COLONIAL MENTALITY!

    What a shame!

    This article is just a mere opinion and interpretation of one media personel.

    Release the entire study first then we can make our objective opinions. PITIFUL!

    • orangec5

      Sapat ba ang excuse na “not anyone is immune to corruption” para ipagtanggol ang gawain ng isang corrupt? Read the entire report? Meron na bang lumabas na initial report na ang ending ay kokontrahin lang ang nakasaad sa climax neto? Pitiful low life! Di nag-iisip b0b0.

    Reading this news report makes me feel like throwing up.  Here’s the completion  of the ruination of every conceivable institution in the country initiated primarily by two individuals without scruples.   Mr. Corona completed what GMA started in the judiciary.

    If a person of conscience is accused of malfeasance, he does not need to read the charges to know deep in his conscience the truth of the charges.  To raise the excuse that he still has to read the accusations, especially coming as it is from an institution of good repute, is a very poor defense.

    However, there’s an incontrovertible truth in these charges in support of a legendary account, that everything Midas touches turns to dollars or gold.  So fellow yellow fanatics, lets rejoice, we don’t have to worry about the defense that “its the economy, stupid” afterall, since those statues alone that will turn to gold the next time Midas touch will be more than enough to surmount the golf production of South Africa.  Way more than enough to bolster the economy.

    READ LAST PARAGRAPH:
    “The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of Chief Justice Reynato Puno. But the World Bank extended the closing date twice—first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months (until June 30, 2012).”The loan was approved in 2003…Corona was not SC Chief Justice at that time yet, only mid of 2010.

The Supreme Court is NOT THE ONLY GOVERNMENT AGENCY which the World Bank has identified as having misused funds. The PROCESS OF PROJECT PROPOSAL AND FEASIBIILITY STUDIES IS A VERY LONG ONE, SOMETIMES TAKING YEARS ! 2. The World Bank CITED ACHIEVEMENTS ! Questionable procurements IS ALWAYS PRESENT IN NUMEROUS WORLD BANK PROJECTS IN THE PH ! It is questionable but it doesnt mean the funds was pocketed by the accused ! Those are 2 different things.3. The press release WAS EXACTLY TIMED 2 days before the impeachment trial, specifically Friday (printed Saturday) BECAUSE NEWSPAPERS HARDLY PRINT ANYTHING RECEIVED ON SUNDAY ! The next working day is Monday, the day of the impeachment trials. IN SHORT, ALL THIS BLACK PROPAGANDA IS INITIATED BY THOSE WHO MONOPOLIZE MEDIA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    corona should resign now!  If he has the delicadeza he should resign now and should not wait for a trial to disprove WB report.  He should not cling to power and hide behind the technicalities of the law.  Just his delicadeza, if he has, will save the judiciary  and the country from shame.

    WB report has now nothing to do with Hacienda Luisita or vengeance, as his allegations in the impeachment trial which is a very remote alibi.  Now he has no more alibi not to resign since it is now the WB that says that under his watch WB fund just went to nothing but only to corrupts’ pockets.

      Helloooo… Nice try para lumusot, but they have to do way better than that.The charges includes graft and curruption… ano pang bisa ang pagiging chief nya kung wala syang kinalaman dito?

      Spending money for your own “personal” benefit is no different from the act of actually “pocketing” the said money. And it should be true that this practice must have been going on for decades now (and its funny how you suddenly missed Gloria’s term). But somehow it should start on a single head to initiate a “domino” effect. And what perfect place to start than the head of “the head” – CoroGloria.

      Wether we like it or not, as us60cents had said earlier, its all about politics. And by clinging to power – Corona must pay the price.

  • Rightthingtodo

    If there is no proper segregation of the duties on authorization (approves the transaction), recording (request and records the transaction) and custody (takes custody of documents), that is already a BIG RED FLAG to any auditor.  Since Midas has the duties of authorization  and recording (request), the potential for fraud cannot be discounted.  And when the audit showed ineligible disbursements, the logical conclusion could be that Midas and the members of the Supreme Court are disbursing the WB loan money as if it is their own money.  They did not disburse it for the purpose the loan was extended.   
    Corona, being the head or primus inter pares, can implement strict rules in order to safeguard the funds but did nothing.  The internal control of the SC although admittedly weak is further weakened when the CJ did not do anything.
    Mahiya kayo diyan sa SC, lalo ka na Midas, if you exercise dual duties of requesting and approving transactions.

Kahit mga TV shows, nakakaawa ang mga mukha ng mga audience compared sa mga TV live shows sa ibang bansa. Marami sa mga maaaring responsable sa illegal logging sa Mindanao at Luzon ay maaari ring nasa House of Representatives. Bakit gumagastos ng milyon-milyon ang mga congressmen at senators sa election campaign nila kung ang legal na suweldo nila ay wala pang 500,000 Pesos per year? Puro grandstanding. Puro pakitang-tao. Puro pakitang gilas. Ang liit na bansa, napakaraming politiko. Yes, Corona is the accused, but if he is acquitted, Tupas et al. should be made accountable for wasting the country’s limited resources and for making Filipinos go one more notch up the laughing stock ranking.

    Hope the writer is not bias. He make it appear that is all fault of Corona at the start of the article. Its very clear that the project started in 2003 and set to expire on Dec. 2009 (6-years project timeline).  Corona was legally appointed on mid-2010.  Apparently, there was a delay in the implementation of the project…reason being extended until this year.  Who is at fault?  Let Puno and Panganiban (former CJ) explain why the delay in the project during their time, too.  Lets be reasonable and let them explain before making any judgement which many of you have done already…baka yong kindergarten masmagaling pang magiisip sa inyo.

    If the WB facilitated this money for the purpose of improving the judiciary yet did not happen, wait till we hear what Corona did to the P3 billion they have lobbied much earlier saying it belongs to the supreme court. Lahat yata ng napasandal kay GMA iisa ang sakit pagdating sa pera.

      The World Bank approved the loan in 2003 (Loan No. 7191-PH) “to
      assist the borrower in developing a more effective and accessible
      judiciary that would foster public trust and confidence through the
      implementation of the Supreme Court’s Action Program for Judicial Reform
      (APJR).”

      The JRSP is the World Bank’s term for its financial support for the
      APJR, the brainchild of then Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr., who
      envisioned the much-needed judicial reforms to be bankrolled by combined
      resources from the national budget, the judiciary’s own funds and
      financing from development partners.

      The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of
      Chief Justice Reynato Puno. But the World Bank extended the closing date
      twice—first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months
      (until June 30, 2012).

      But due to questions over the fiscal discipline of the tribunal in
      adhering to loan stipulations, the World Bank canceled the final tranche
      of the loan amounting to $0.5 million.

      Why blame Chief Justice Corona.  The loan was approved in 2003 during the term of Chief Justice Davide, now a Liberal Party member.

     Now fatom this: If CJ knows in his mind and heart that even one of the impeachment complaint, or even half of the one complaint is true, Do you think he will still go for the impeachment trial himself. He will do a Merciditas Gutierez faster than a lightning. He has a clear concience and honest and willing to go through with it and fight for the rule of law, democracy and country. With all the gov’t resources, the two branch of Gov’t and the media against you and all the charges thrown at you including the kitchen sink, your family being vilified, and still you’re fighting for your life and country. That’s a very rare person to have guts and courage to go against all odds. I’m proud of CJ Corona’s courage and honesty. You may muck this statement but I know in your heart and mind that you would agree with me. So, CJ Corona keep it up and don’t waver if you feel in your heart that you are truly truthful and honest and nothing to hide.

    if guilty, we must punish. If not, we must acquit.
     
    Then let’s proceed to more important matters, like investigating politicians’ involvement in illegal logging, resolution of the Maguindano massacre and job ceation.
     
    Paulit-ulit, ganti-gantihan. Kaya walang asenso ang Pilipinas. Nakakahiya kayo sa buong mundo. Kung hindi about politics, puro pantasya at artista ang laman ng mga balita. Kahit mga TV shows, nakakaawa ang mga mukha ng mga audience compared sa mga TV live shows sa ibang bansa. Marami sa mga maaaring responsable sa illegal logging sa Mindanao at Luzon ay maaari ring nasa House of Representatives. Bakit gumagastos ng milyon-milyon ang mga congressmen at senators sa election campaign nila kung ang legal na suweldo nila ay wala pang 500,000 Pesos per year? Puro grandstanding. Puro pakitang-tao. Puro pakitang gilas. Ang liit na bansa, napakaraming politiko. Yes, Corona is the accused, but if he is acquitted, Tupas et al. should be made accountable for wasting the country’s limited resources and for making Filipinos go one more notch up the laughing stock ranking.

    It still worries me that there are still some Filipinos who have not matured. They’ll really die for someone with close eyes just because they become fanatics.

    This is a World Bank and not Philippine National Bank. Its integrity is never been questioned except by the leftist elements who only want chaos and sow terrorism in the country. WB is a respectable institution, thus, questioning them on their statement is like asking a professor in Physics if he knows the Law of Inertia.

    According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing
    mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of
    one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office,
    and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.

    The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s
    behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to
    P500,000, the World Bank said.

    “Lack of appropriate segregation of duties of key officials involved
    in the JRSP has created a breakdown of the control environment,
    increased fiduciary and reputation risks, and led to
    irregular/inappropriate procurement and expenditure decisions,” it said.

    Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior
    official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was
    the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference,
    the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of

    Wow, I cannot believe the wickedness and hunger for money of these Arroyo minions. What’s more disgusting is the fact that it’s the Supreme Court’s integrity that is on fire now, 

    WB will not publish something unfounded, thus, it is hard to believe that this is a just a black propaganda. When there are supporting documents to back the allegation, it is something serious. But again. as usual, their defenders will say that this is a lie. Hahaha.

    When one cannot find a good excuse to rebut the accusation, they will say it’s fabricated, lie and black propaganda. Enough of this stupidity people. Plato is so right when he said, if all people were educated, there would be no slaves. Sadly, there are still educated ignorant or perhaps, they are applying the Socratic method of pretending not to know even if they know. Well, if that’s the case, maybe they are also the slaves that Plato mentioned in his treatise.

    As for the Corona, prove all the accusation against you are not true in the impeachment. After all, you know the basic rule in law on “presumption of innocence”. Only then that people will know whether you are telling the truth or not. On the other hand, in legal parlance, there’s what you called “Res ipsa loquitur” (“the thing speaks for itself”), with that maybe Michael V will say in his show —- YARI KA!!! Hahaha!

      point being is, kung lahat ng mga pilipino kagaya ng mga tao sa japan, na pag may nakikitang anomalya, nag haharakiri, eh BAKA 99 % NAGHARAKIRI NA…EH ANG KAKAPAL NGA NG MGA MUKHA EH. 

      WHO INVENTED CORRUPTION? CHINA ACCORDING TO MIRIAM, WHICH I BELEIVE IS TRUE.
       

      ONE CLASSIC EXAMPLE:

      CU YU WAN, great grandfather of Cory, IS from Tongan, Province of CHINA. (Chinese Prime Minister called Pnoy “SON” in one of the visits, no wonder pwede na tayo ibenta sa CHINA) He was baptised as  José Cojuangcos his Christian name. He was a very influential man   They did not have the dollars to pay6,000 HECTARES OF LAND With the dollar control in force, “THEY HAD TO USE INFLUENCE” in government to get dollars. They also “GOT A LOAN” from the Government Service Insurance System and a dollar loan from the Manufacturers Trust Company of New York.  The loans were guaranteed by the Central Bank of the Philippines under certain conditions.

      PNOY’S GREAT GRAND “LOLO”, USED HIS INFLUENCE TO BEFRIEND OFFICIAL. DBA PANGUNGURAKOT DIN YAN? ITO ANG MOTHER OF ALL BEHEST LOANS. 

      SI DANDING COCO LEVY NAMAN.

      NOW WHO INVENTED CORRUPTION? TSE! PARE PAREHO LANG SILA KAMO!

    There was an interesting piece of news I read on another daily.  In it was a report originating from an SC insider who requested anonymity Renato Corona hinted on agreeing to quit his post but with the condition he get to choose his replacement?  As soon as the negotiator heard of the condition, it got shot down.  This if true, bolster what we have been saying all along – GMA chose Renato Corona as chief justice for the same reason Renato Corona wants to pick his replacement – PROTECTION??  This fellow need to go before the whole supreme court sink into the Manila Trash bay.

    Again the ordinary Filipino taxpayers lost on this one.  Unlike the multi-million-dollar CIDA Juris Project grant, this is a  loan from the World Bank that  will have to be repaid.

    But like the CIDA grant, the WB loan has the same, almost redundant, objective of improving the judiciary’s management and operation. And clearly, there is no full improvement that could otherwise be had had every single cent been spent on the project.

    How can the Filipinos trust the judiciary if it doesn’t show any fiscal responsibility?

    So that’s the reason Corona was fighting for Judicial Independence for their share of the Budget. They don’t want to be questioned on how they spend their share of taxpayer’s money. Good thing the World Bank brought this issue, Corona really has to go voluntarily or be drag out of the Supreme Court physically like Gadaffi.

    “One-man show

    According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing
    mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of
    one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office,
    and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.

    The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s
    behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to
    P500,000, the World Bank said.

    “Lack of appropriate segregation of duties of key officials involved
    in the JRSP has created a breakdown of the control environment,
    increased fiduciary and reputation risks, and led to
    irregular/inappropriate procurement and expenditure decisions,” it said.

    Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior
    official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was
    the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference,
    the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of
    contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

    It said this arrangement, among others, “present[ed] a conflict of
    interest and eliminate[d] internal checks and balances applicable to the
    procurement and disbursement functions.”

    This is a classic example of government heads dipping their hands in the pockets of their department. We know all these things are happening yet we tend to look the other way when it is caused by people dear to us or dear to others who benefit from the administration (e.g. patronage). It is good that the impeachment will push through as more will be uncovered in the course of the proceedings. The collateral effect though would be beneficial to Filipinos because more will be discovered not only from the judiciary but also from other departments of the government (military exposes are still going on; many more to come I hope).

    Mga pro-corona hindi marunong magbasa, puro 2003 sinasabi nyo pero ang sabi ng WB ay:
    “The review discloses that the fiduciary environment pertaining to JRSP implementation has so deteriorated that the task team now rates the JRSP as a ‘high risk’ and ‘unsatisfactory’ on project management, project procurement and financial management dimensions, and observes that project financial statements can no longer be relied upon,” 

    The World Bank initiated the fiduciary review when Corona was already appointed Chief Justice by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo despite an election ban.It said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

    Let me reiterate WB  “sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

    Now we know why Jose Midas Marquez is Corona’s staunch defender. 
    “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

    In layman’s terms: 1. siya ang gumagawa ng request (requestor), 2. siya ang nag-a-approve (approver), 3. siya ang nakikinabang (end-user), 4. siya ang nagbibigay ng go-signal sa pagpapahaba ng contrata, 5. siya din ang nagbibigay ng go-signal sa pagbabayad doon sa ni-request niya.

    Misinformation? Propaganda? These idiot ilks of pandak arroyo camp are doing all they can to shift the attention to other things, be it the HL decision, the DBM reports. This is a World Bank report and it is clear in the report that while it started before Corona’s time, the report clearly states the anomalies and the downgrading started during Corona’s time. So to claim na minana lang ito ni Corono ay isang bobong pag-unawa. Its even clearly stated in the report that Corona made his boy toy Mida’s Marquez the one in total control from request, approval and use of funds – which is the mark of the Arroyo’s group – mga garapal talaga sa pag kurakot. For those trying to cover up for Corona and trying to divert attention to other things, wake up, the people are not as stupid as you. Buking na lulusot pa, its time for you to hang!!!!

    “Asked to comment, Ramon Esguerra, a spokesperson of Corona’s legal team,
    on Saturday said the accusation was “not in any way connected to any of
    the articles of impeachment” against the Chief Justice.”

    Come on Esguerra, open your eyes.  This is GRAFT AND CORRUPTION.   

    “The World Bank is now demanding a refund of $199,900, covering “70
    payments” deemed “ineligible” or unauthorized under the terms of the
    JRSP, by Jan. 31.”  THIS FALLS UNDER GRAFT AND CORRUPTION – UNAUTHORIZED DISBURSEMENT OF FUNDS FOR ONE’S BENEFIT.

    “Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior
    official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was
    the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference,
    the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of
    contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

    NO WONDER WHY MIDAS WAS SO INTENSE IN PROTECTING CORONA. HE HAS AN AXE TO GRIND.

    News item din pala to.  The WB actually put funds to government offices to improve their efficiency.  It’s not only the SC or the judicial branch that benefits from this assistance or facility. Most frontline government agencies are beneficiaries of this facility.  Now, in the case of this beneficiary agency, they can propose a project to the WB and they will either approve or reject that project or at least have a terms of reference for that project.  This news item is misleading since most government agencies are also recipient of this fund and the WB has a say on where to put this fund.

    the accusation was “not in any way connected to any of the articles of

    Does it not reflects what kind of justices we have in our Supreme Court?

    Absolutely YES!

    Is it not an indicator of the failure of a Chief Justice to be honest with the proper use of the fund?
     
    Of course it is.

    Is it not the Chief Justice appointed Administrator, Jose Midas Marquez, who handles the release of fund?

    That’s what his lawyer claimed.

    Is it not that the Marquez has to consult first with the Chief Justice on all transaction or allocation of fund?

    Logically and rationally, YES!

    If Jose Midas Marques misused the fund by himself, he should then be imprisoned as a traitor for damaging the trust and image of the Philippines in front of the world. The government shall file a sabotage case against him.

    Finally, Is it relevant to the Impeachment trial?

    I highly think so; because it is a litmus test for the character of CJ Corona – His degree of honesty on the public fund and anything pertaining to money.

    Iisa lang ang naghuhumindig na katotohanan sa balitang ito,
    Na ang Inquirer ay isa ng lehitimong propagandang makinarya ng Aguino government.
    Lahat ng headlines nila sa mga nakaraang araw ay pulos paninira na kay SC Corona
    Isa na namang ” mind conditioning tactics ” na expertong nagagawa ng rehimeng Aquino.

    Hindi pa man nagsisimula ang impeachment trial
    Pero inuunahan na ng angkan ng mga Prieto ang pagpapalabas ng mga tinatawag nilang “ebidensya”, kahit wala pang malinaw na patunay sa kredibilidad nito.
    Ganito ang nangyayari sa lahat ng mga kalaban ni Noynoy
    Idinadaan sa media ang kanilang panig upang makakuha ng puntos.
    At kapag hindi pumabor sa kanila ang hatol
    Gagamitin ang opinion kuno ng bayan para sa kanilang pansariling interest.

    Pinagbawalan na ng Senado ang prosecution ” gang ” na huwag ng magsalita tungkol sa kaso
    dahil nasa impeachment court na ito.
    Useless din pala.

    Lahat ng kaso dito sa Pinas ay nakasalalay pa din sa kultura ng POPULARIDAD.

    From the Daily Tribune 1/15/2012
    House prosecutors and their spokesmen are obviously using this impeachment trial of the Chief Justice, Renato Corona, as their stepping stone to the Senate, no different from some prosecutors and other anti-Erap congressmen during the impeachment of the then sitting president, Joseph Estrada.
    But the way they have been engaging in really very low dirty tactics but being slowly found out by the public of their malicious play and their paucity of evidence along with their manufactured documents against the CJ, they may just be booed off by the voters in 2013, which is not too far away — campaign wise.
    Just how dirty the prosecutors, and no doubt, Noynoy, have been playing the game, can be evidenced by the leak to the media of the so-called 45 properties they had charged were owned by the CJ, when it is now being bared that many of those alleged properties owned by Corona were not even in his name. Moreover, if the rules are to be adhered to, that list of properties cannot even be introduced in court, unless the House amends the impeachment complaint, which means that the Articles of Impeachment will have to be returned to the House for amendments, and the 188 congressmen will have to again vote on these amendments, after which, this would again be elevated to the Senate.
    What is also very disturbing is the fact that the Land Registration Authority, an agency under the Justice department, headed by its secretary, Leila de Lima, and of course under Noynoy, has lent itself to being prostituted by this hypocritical daang matuwid regime of Noynoy, for the LRA to come up with an obviously manufactured list of properties allegedly owned by the Coronas, to the point of not only doubling and trebling the CCTs and the TCTs, where even parking spaces are made out to appear as yet another ill-gotten property but also even including the properties that are not registered under the name of Corona. Some, in fact, have already been sold, yet they were included on the list, to maliciously make the list of properties longer.
    The LRA has lost whatever integrity it had, having been found to have manufactured evidence for Noynoy and the prosecutors, obviously under orders from the big bosses in Malacañang and the DoJ — and all in the name of destructive politics.
    Noynoy and his prosecutors are obviously trying this impeachment case against Corona through trial and conviction by publicity, mainly because they already realize that they may not succeed in ousting Corona through the impeachment process, as the charges and evidence are certainly looking very weak. But of course, the flow of Palace money may make all the difference, except that it would be not only be the high court that will be ruined, but also the Senate, as the perception has already grown that money by way of pork barrel and additional “soft component projects” will bring about a conviction of Corona.
    In truth, even those SC justices who are perceived to be aiding Noynoy and the prosecution in their case against the CJ, are also vulnerable to being destroyed, as the impact of the negative publicity on Corona spreads to the other justices, too.
    Still, in the process of trying Corona via publicity, it is the prosecutors and spokesmen who are being damaged, mainly because they are being shown up as dirty players who even go to the extent of manufacturing evidence that they may fail to prove, apart from which, they really are looking stupid, calling on the Senate court to summon Corona and his family members to appear before the court, bring the documents listed in the manufactured LRA list of properties, and testify to their ownership.
    That is stupidity of the highest order, considering the fact that these prosecutors are lawyers, and that they should know that it is they who are the accusers, and therefore must prove their accusations.
    But what these prosecutors and their spokesmen want is for Corona and his family members to prove the prosecution’s allegations against them.
    As the trial progresses, the prosecutors may end up with eggs on their faces

      Daily Tribune is a corrupt newspaper. One of them, Cunanan, is a black propagandist spreading the rumor that the Hacienda Luisita case is behind the inevitable impeachment of Corona.

      • domreyes

        ThirdOpinion,

        Cunanan is right. Luisita is the reason behind the impeachment case.

  • Roland_Quong

    The World Bank report speaks a lot about the qualities of Corona’s leadership and Midas Marquez’s character. This climate of impunity is always the result when a branch of gov’t feels they are “independent” and unaccountable: Corona ordering the issuance of the TRO ex-parte without hearing the gov’t side vs. gma’s WLO, and according to the news report, “Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.” Shame!

    YOUR HEADLINE SCREAMS OF BIAS. Remember that the very democracy that allows you to air your views, whether rightly or wrongly, will be endangered when the rightful legal process is not followed for the sake of ensuring a guilty verdict. Let us remember that democracy is a process, it is the means to an end and not the end itself, and grounded on the rule of law, not of men. I am therefore alarmed that many will accept no less than a guilty verdict, regardless of the evidence and process, and headlines such as yours are largely responsible for this.

  • Leonardof

    NOW IT CAN BE SAID THAT THE SC HAD BECOME A CENTER OF CORRUPTION.  CORONA AND MARQUEZ MADE I T SO.  THERE IS NO WAY THAT CORONA CAN BE ABSOLVED IN THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, NOR CAN HE EVADE CRIMINAL CASES THAT WILL FOLLOW THE IMPEACHMENT.  HE DESERVES TO ACCOMPANY HIS BOSS IN JAIL. 

    TO CLEANSE THE JUDICIARY OF SCALAWAGS IN ROBES, THE ADMINISTRATION MUST GO AFTER MARQUEZ IN PARTICULAR, AND AS WELL AS THE OTHER ASSOCIATE JUSTICES WHO ARE IN COHORTS WITH CORONA . THEY OUGHT TO BE MADE TO ANSWER FOR THE MALFEASANSES COMMITTED IN THE SC.  

    THE GOVERNMENT MUST NOT FORGET THAT THE CORRUPTION HAS SPILLED INTO THE OTHER UNITS OF THE JUDICIARY DOWN TO THE LOWER COURTS.. THIS IS HUGE TASK THOUGH, BUT IT IS THE ONLY WAY THAT THE FILIPINO PEOPLE PARTICULARLY THE POOR GET TRUE JUSTICE.

    I am not against the Administration, nor I am in favor of CORONA, in fact, all I wanted is for CORONA to be impeached para makita talaga natin ang diskarte ni PNOY without any hindrance.For me, so far, so good ang diskarte ni PNOY, the thing is you can’t progress if a big chunk is blocking the way.
    Now going back to the WB Report. The problem with WB is that, they are not addressing the Social Problems which this organization is aiming. WB’s business is a “Social Business”, which means they have to address all social problems by extending loans to any organization who can proved that they can help solved the social problems. They just give loans, and in return wants to see that the loans will be repaid with the desired margin, which is “incorrect”. This is not the core “job description” of WB. They have to check, and see to it, that with or without profit/ margin, the money extended for loan was disbursed to the appropriate social problems that was defined by the borrower, prior to the granting of the loan. Isn’t it? Now, WB is coming back directly with a report, without even checking if part of the expenses is really to purchase IT equipment, and travel expenses, because as we all know travel is essential in implementing such social problems. It’s not just travelling for pleasure, whatsoever. If indeed, that MIDAS is using it for fun, pleasure, or whatsoever then WB has to published the justification or the reasons submitted by SC prior to the granting of loans by WB to SC, for the people to know, and weigh things accordingly.

    The thing is some people in the SC has it’s own vested interest, what is so alarming in the report is the payment maid to ESTELITO’s travel agency? For me, this is the main issue that SC and MIDAS has to answer.There is clearly a conflict of interest.

    Bottom line, we will support for the ouster of CORONA including MIDAS Marquez, and see if the administration could progress it fairly.

  • pinoysahongkong2011

    Very well said paranoid_penguin,

    Like you and I, many Pinoys want the truth to come out.
    What’s wrong with knowing the truth? Nothing …. except to thieves who want to hide permanently their crime.

    Those who complain against bias on Corona and even subjecting him to trial by publicity should ask themselves some very hard questions like the following:

    1. Kung anak nyo ay agaw buhay at di masagip ang buhay sa isang public hospital dahil kulang ang gamot o walang matinong ambulansiya para dalhin agad siya sa ospital, di ba’t tiyak kayong magagalit sa gubyerno sa kakulangan nito ng perang pantulong sa mahihirap?

    2. Kung ikaw ay walang makuhang matinong trabaho dahil wala halos kakayahan ang gubyerno na gumawa ng trabaho dahil lagi itong walang pera, di ba’t magagalit ka rin sa gubyerno?

    3. Bakit laging bankrupt ang gubyerno lalo pa noong panahon ni GMA? Dahil sa talamak na graft and corruption! At unti unti ng lumalabas ang mga patunay na corrupt din si Corona.

    Here in Hong Kong, there is zero tolerance for corruption — both in government and in the private sector — especially because there is a very strong and effective independent against which fights corruption. As a result, the government is very rich and it can provide very good services to the public, build very good transport systems and other infrastructures and provide all sort of benefits to the public, like heavily subsidized cost of medical care.

    What’s wrong with getting rid of corrupt officials like GMA and Corona who seem to be helping themselves more than ordinary citizens like us?

    Why pity their plight and not that of ourselves, ordinary citizens many of whom pay taxes and don’t steal money from public coffers?

    In China, some of the most corrupt officials are shot in the back of the head as punishment to warn other officials from committing crimes against the people.

    So, why should Pinoys let the most corrupt officials go scot free or treat them with kid’s gloves when they are depriving us and our children and grandchildren basic public services, like expanded medical care, which we sorely need?

    • AntiAko

      nothing wrong with weeding out the corrupt (and if i may add, also the incompetent and inefficient) people working in the government.  however, this must be done according to the processes laid down in our constitution and laws. no short-cuts. after all, we still want the law to reign.

      my only apprehension is that if we get really serious about weeding out the corrupt in government, THE GOVERNMENT WILL COLLAPSE!!! WHY? Because there will almost be no one left! The congressmen who are the prosecutors in this case? Susmaryosep, everyone knows they are most active members in the CORRUPT CLUB. Wahahahaha

      • bechay64

        150% agree ako sa iyo. But then why not? the people, the voters are actually the ones tolerating these. A year or two before the elections. would-be candidates start media mileage thru TV, Newspapers and radio and what have you. Do you believe that these would-be candidates do not spend a centavo doing these? A few months before the election, these would-be candidates start spending for their media ads. And how much does one think do these people spend for these? Then now follows other campaign materials t-shirts, basketball etc. uniform requests, air fare requests of political leaders , various burial expense requests, and all sorts of requests. Now on the eve of election day, how much do you think does one candidate spend for almost every voter? To try to sway those votes for the kalaban to heir respective manok? A thousand peso per head? Multiply that with even just 30% of the  number of voters in each precinct. Ilang milyon yan? So when these candidates win, of course they need to get back their money which they spent during the elections. And where do you think will they get this money from? Kaya may corrupt club.

    It’s show that one by one the anomaly of the SC is being revealed to the public. That’s one positive effect of impeachment. This will improve the system within the Judiciary but first let those responsible should be put to justice. The problem is that the SC is the justice. The only consolation for the public is that the Judiciary will now be careful in their next work in handling public funds because the PEOPLE is watching. Therefore let us be vigilant because that is our money. . .

    This new development should make the supporters of CJ Corona realize how serious is the desire of Filipino people to clean the SC and rid the judiciary of the so called “hoodlums in robes”. But some lawyers supporters of Corona like IBP and the association of judges seem to prefer this kind of arrangements where crooks rule their turf. They are comfortable dealings with hooligans because they themselves could not stand the ‘truth’.  They seem to prefer an environment where deceit trickery, cheating and confusion is the name of the game. Look at how the defense are attacking thias case. They opted to go on technicalities rather than meeting the issue head on. That is because they knew they could not win this impeachment case fair and square. Shame and woe on these people.You even use Novena and religious practices to display your hypocrisy.

    • muddygoose

      @cdcdrvcr – Actually ibang position ang ni-mention ng article:

      “According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office, and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.”

      Ito ang cause kung bakit nawalan ng fiduciary control. Kung sino ang magre-request, siya din ang mag-aapprove. Basahin mo ulit yung article kabayan.

Noy’s lackays will bring up such garbage even during the trial but still say they are not interfering in senate matters. Maybe some of them should be hanged head down in front of the senate for trampling at any rule, law, constitution, anyway at all good manners and fairness, which they claim for them when accused of any wrongdoing. Soon the country will be commanded by a hatesick man and his yellow mob as his army.

      People like you should be “convicted “for desperate dumbness”. After all the time, you will not understand that the SC is not commanded by a Chief Justice but all decisions are made as a collegium where the CJ has the same one vote than all justices.
      This is so and was always so, except under Cory Aquino. She forced the justices out and put her personal favorites in, who then decided as she wanted, including the Luisita case. And this is what her boy Noynoy wants to do also. Having a rubberstamp administration from the barangays up to the Supreme Court. And then he will go his straight path as a “democratic dictator”. Poor Philippines and Filipinos.

    “Asked to comment, Ramon Esguerra, a spokesperson of Corona’s legal team, on Saturday said the accusation was “not in any way connected to any of the articles of impeachment” against the Chief Justice.”
    “He said it was the high court as a whole, and not Corona alone, that should respond to the accusation.”
    Helloooo… Nice try para lumusot, but they have to do way better than that.

  • pinoysahongkong2011

    Very well said paranoid_penguin,

    Like you and I, many Pinoys want the truth to come out.

    What’s wrong with knowing the truth? Nothing …. except to thieves who want to hide permanently their crime.

    Those who complain against bias on Corona and even subjecting him to
    trial by publicity should ask themselves some very hard questions like
    the following:

    1. Kung anak nyo ay agaw buhay at di masagip ang buhay sa isang public
    hospital dahil kulang ang gamot o walang matinong ambulansiya para
    dalhin agad siya sa ospital, di ba’t tiyak kayong magagalit sa gubyerno
    sa kakulangan nito ng perang pantulong sa mahihirap?

    2. Kung ikaw ay walang makuhang matinong trabaho dahil wala halos
    kakayahan ang gubyerno na gumawa ng trabaho dahil lagi itong walang
    pera, di ba’t magagalit ka rin sa gubyerno?

    3. Bakit laging bankrupt ang gubyerno lalo pa noong panahon ni GMA?
    Dahil sa talamak na graft and corruption! At unti unti ng lumalabas ang
    mga patunay na corrupt din si Corona.

    Our government can drastically increase its revenue generation and finance a wide array of public services, like more medicine in public hospitals, implementation of more infrastructure projects that will create jobs, etc. if monies lost to graft and corruption are reduced to a great extent.

    Corrupt officials, like Corona, should not stay any second or minute longer in our government because enriching themselves is their first and top priority and public service is only incidental in their public tenure.

    Here in Hong Kong, there is zero tolerance for corruption — both in
    government and in the private sector — especially because there is a
    very strong and effective independent against which fights corruption.
    As a result, the government is very rich and it can provide very good
    services to the public, build very good transport systems and other
    infrastructures and provide all sort of benefits to the public, like
    heavily subsidized cost of medical care.

    What’s wrong with getting rid of corrupt officials like GMA and Corona
    who seem to be helping themselves more than ordinary citizens like us?

    Why pity their plight and not that of ourselves, ordinary citizens many
    of whom pay taxes and don’t steal money from public coffers?

    In China, some of the most corrupt officials are shot in the back of the
    head as punishment to warn other officials from committing crimes
    against the people.

    So, why should Pinoys let the most corrupt officials go scot free or
    treat them with kid’s gloves when they are depriving us and our children
    and grandchildren basic public services, like expanded medical care,
    which we sorely need?

      Pinoysahongkong, agree.  I agree with you 100%.  Like you, pinoy din ako sa hk.  Hindi issue kung pro or aniti Pinoy tayo but kung anti graft and corruption tayo.  ‘Di ba ang dating PCGG noong panahon ni gma punta pa dito para seminar with ICAC, the anti-graft agency ng hk.  Sagot ng ICAC di na kailanagan ng addt’l laws ng Pinas kundi proper implementation lang.

      Noong bagong dating ang dh ko dito manghang-mangha siya sa peace and order.  Noong magkasakit siya, libre gamot pati laboratories at tests niya.  2 buwan ang gamutan niya. Meron bang ganito sa atin?  Pinaliwanag ko na ang bansang maunlad at sumusunod sa batas ay nabibigyan ng tamang kalinga at benipisyo kahit ordinaryong mamamayan.  Maging FDH may ganitong benipisyo sa hk.  Sa Pinas maraming namamatay na walang lunas dahil sa kakulangan ng pera at serbisyo.

      Ilang taon na bang surplus ang HK?  Ngayon lahat ng PR 18 yrs old pataas may cash subsidy na HKD6,000.  saan ka pa?  Meron pang light and power subsidy di ba?  Di ba hindi malaman ng gobyerno ng HK kung paano gagamiting iyong DFH levy?  Kung sa atin nangyari ito, baka nasaid na noon pa.  Lahat nang puwedeng sawsawan na pondo ng mamamayan nagkakaroon ng anomalya.  Tingnan natin ang SSS, GSIS, OWWA fund, Philhealth, etc. wala yatang exception.  

      Dito alam natin kung gaano kabilis ang hustisya at kahit dh puwedeng mag-rally.  Ang batas ay pantay maging dh man.  Marahil ay alam ng lahat ang issue tungkol sa right of abode ng dh nating kababayan.  Pabor sa kanya ang desiyon at nasa round2 ang proseso nito. Ang mga mahistrado ay very low profile.  Tunay na zero tolerance to corruption ang pina-iiral dito.  

      Sabi ko sa asawa ko di baleng mahirap ang kalagayan natin sa atin sa Pinas kung pareho-parehong nagtatrabaho, patas ang laban at lahat ay nagmamalasakit ng tunay sa bayan.  Subalit kapag nalalaman mo ang anomalyang ganito at mga animo mala-reyna o mala-haring karangyaan na tinatamasa ng ating opisyales na galing sa ibang paraan at sa pag-apak kay Juan, tunay na nakakagalit at nakakalungkot.

      Sabi pa ng Nanay ko: “Umalis na kayo dito sa Pinas at wala lang mangyayari sa inyo.” 

  • Iggy Ramirez

    So much for defending against assaults to the supreme court.

    By looking at his face, we can see that he possesses the ultimate face of the devil. The World bank confirms that our hunches, suspicions, apprehensions, and fears were right all along. 

    Corona is a thieving sham, deceptive, and evil person who is never to be trusted.

  • SeanPhilippe

    The Supreme Court under the watch of Chief Justice Renato Corona has been weighed and found wanting.
                                    “Weighed and found wanting?”

    Corona and all his supporters will ONCE AGAIN try to twist the facts to cover their greed. 

    This is a LOAN that again the Filipino taxpayers will have to shoulder.

    This is one of the MANY LOANS during the time of Arroyo presidency that provides them the means to loot and selfishly indulge to luxury while in public office.

    As Arroyo’s preached her former student about economy, days later, World Bank released this report to confirm ONCE AGAIN that corruption is rampant during her term. 

    As Midas Marquez speaks eloquently about the Chief Justice, World bank practically provided us the reason why he seems to be the self-appointed spokesman of Chief Justice. To quote:

    —     The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.

    Without naming Jose Midas Marquez, the World Bank said “this senior official, due to the combination of his appointments and functions, was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.” —

    From PRIEST, to Congressmen, to AFP Generals, and now even in Supreme Court, everyone seems to be DIPPING THEIR HANDS WITH GUSTO on government loans, government savings, government budget, etc. 

    This is the very reason that the majority of the Filipinos support the government’s drive to weed out corruption in the government by making people accountable and criminally liable for this blatant betrayal of public trust.

    No wonder Corona and Arroyo had negative satisfaction rating because both have corrupted the system and abused our trust.

    Time for them to pay the price. Keep Arroyo in jail. Remove Corona as Chief Justice and if there’s enough evidence, seized his ill-gotten wealth and file criminal charges.

    During Erap’s impeachment hearing, the “hidden envelope” was what triggered a strong reaction and precipitated a walkout by the private prosecutors. This time, it will be the non-disclosure of the SALNs and the deed of sale of the properties that will trigger strong reactions because Corona and his lawyers will move heaven and earth not to make them public by citing technicalities.
     
    Also, the clerk of court of the SC (the custodian of the SALNs) must be summoned to determined if there were efforts to retrieve (by Corona or his representative ) the SLANs from the vault in attempts to tamper them .

  • JonTalbein

    Mga pro-corona hindi marunong magbasa, puro 2003 sinasabi nyo pero ang sabi ng WB ay 2011:

    “The review discloses that the fiduciary environment pertaining to JRSP implementation has so deteriorated that the task team now rates the JRSP as a ‘high risk’ and ‘unsatisfactory’ on project management, project procurement and financial management dimensions, and observes that project financial statements can no longer be relied upon,” 

    The World Bank initiated the fiduciary review when Corona was already appointed Chief Justice by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo despite an election ban.It said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

    Let me quote it again “sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

      The prosecutors can not just make a black propaganda involving the World Bank. That is unreal to imagine because the World Bank is a reputable organization. And how in the world that the Supreme has the authority to borrow money from the World Bank without the permission of the President or even from the Treasury Department. Who gave Corona the authority to do that?

      • http://www.facebook.com/oustcorona ILL_HIT_YOUR_FACE

        Lets put it up this way… The WORLD BANK is nothing but simply a BANK…

        They are driven by the same INTEREST like any other business entities… that is PROFITS and PROTECTION OF CAPITAL.

        It seems to me that having MCJ CORONA on helm of SC doesnt serve their INTERESTS on the MONEY they PUT IN our COUNTRY.

      • white scorpion

        your question is as good as mine. …if world bank did not made the issue public. no one would ever know,.. not even the prosecutors.

  • RomyLitz

    It is seemingly difficult for the Senate to hold the US’s World Bank in contempt. They can produce, manufacture and print authenticated documents like James Bond. Corona is facing nemesi here and abroad and the music has not started yet.

  • Hey_Dudes

    Supporters of sleaze and infernal tuko and leeches like glued to positions albeit illegal appointment are still in denial mode. No matter how the evidences pokes in front of their eyes, they refuse to see the light God had given them to guide their ways.  Look at this illegal appointee to the supreme court WB $$21.9 million dollars equals 45 pieces of real estate properties and still – get the blessings of a retired bishop while Camilo Sabio look on approvingly.  Birds of the same feathers robbing the people blind together.

  • sacrebleau

    Corona’s girlfriend Midas is very powerful indeed, as an alter-ego of the CJ when it comes to disbursements.

  • amoringis

    This report needs to be autheticated. Baka LRA (under Noy’s Kabarilan at Kaklase Eulalio Diaz III) report ito on the spurious list of 45 houses. Baka makuryente na naman kayo. Huwag mo nang lumunok baka kayo mabilaokan. 

  • Hey_Dudes

    Kaya naman pala nagkakarandapa si Midas dun sa P3 billion pesos na para daw sa mga salary increases, bonuses, perks etc. etc. while dispensation of laws lagged behind due to unfilled judges positions.  But they need the money for some other things except hiring more judges.  Time to call the pest exterminators to rid the supreme court of pollution.

  • goldilock

    According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing
    mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of
    one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office,
    and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.

    The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s
    behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to
    P500,000, the World Bank said

    The wife:Vitug said Arroyo named Cristina Corona as chairperson, president,
    chief executive officer, and chief operating officer of Camp John Hay
    all at the same time in 2007.
    Mrs. Corona was also named a member of the board despite alleged opposition from the board of directors. Arroyo then reportedly forced the JHMC board members to resign.

    Major conflict of interest. Greedy, A set up to scam the country. They must not hold any public positions. Includes Marquez and anyone connected. Request to secure and confiscate their assets to pay back World Bank. The Filipino people will have to pay the rest.

    • white scorpion

      can we appeal not to pay the balance after confiscating corona’s assets. instead, the corona’s (husband and wife) would be beheaded na lang. firing squad of china, and halakiri of japan is too soft for the magnitude of their offences. i would prefer garote of spanish, or beheading of the romans.

  • RomyLitz

    If the Tupas’s forty-five Corona assets are just the tip of the iceberg, this world biggest financial institution, the World Bank, is already the iceberg itself. Corona’s support of 3,000 people are all 100% Supreme Court employees. Midas is all packed and ready to fly on a jet plane, dont know when she will be back again.

    • Pinoy_Reich

      Media is supposedly bias only to the truth. But I would not mind them slightly banking right or left in reporting as long as it is for the interest of The People of the Republic.Heil PNoy is not the republic but right now, he IS, because he had capture the people’s aspirations and made it his own in his presidency. Those people who howl about Constitution and rule of law are our modern day pharisees and sadducees, bright and right as they are, they made the Law an idol. PNoy is like Jesus (lolz!), he made the people eat corn during the Sabbath because for crying out loud they are hungry and been working. PNoy, if what his detractors are saying, railroad the impeachment case because for God’s sake the Filipino people are crying out for justice for too long and the perpetrators of their sufferings are already ONE OR TWO STEP AHEAD OF THE LAW.

      • dead_pixel

      • Pinoy_Reich

        Very republican ideals there dead_pixel, as republican as Cicero himself. Of course, Heil PNoy is not the republic nor he is above the law but it seems some people forget, even the brightest, that’s its The Filipino people (Heil PNoy’s Boss) that is the republic and collectively they’re above the law. Now, it seems the ‘Bosses’ likes riding Heil PNoy’s railroad express train, the more PNoy ups the speed lever the more his trust rating rockets. Economy? for ordinary people to them it seems economy is only for the flowery speech for trapos and their nice Powerpoint charts with all arrows pointing upwards. As if they don’t notice past presidents who pride about their ‘economic’ achievement yet whose administrations are riddled with excesses and corruptions.

    To daniel
    Are you sure it is “The World Bank” or some of its RP people? WB has really more problems than just two days prior to the impeachment issuing such papers about matters of many years back, and addressing it to a subaltern of Corona when he is blamed to be the one in duty for and therefore the one to address? 
    Noy’s spin octors will bring up such useless garbage which has nothing to do with the case than to throw their own dirt at corona even during the trial but still say they are not interfering in senate matters. Maybe some of them should be hanged head down in front of the senate for trampling at any rule, law, constitutional order, anyway at any and all good manners and fairness, which they immediately claim for themself when accused of any wrongdoing. Soon the country will be commanded by a hatesick man and a howling yellow mob as his army.

    There is the complaint about expenses of justices for seminars and international conferences. My God, is Noy paying for his travels out of his pocket or out of tax money the people paid? Any official attending a seminar or conference officially will not pay with personal money when the occasion is in favor of his or her position and job. Everywhere in the world. What a sh.t character assasination, done by people who seems to have themselves no character, or one “for sale”.

    very malicious talaga ang pagka writeup ng Inquirer. personal

  • tadasolo

    The impeachment of corona is a welcome development in our desire to clean our society and provide a better future for all Filipinos. The culture of deceit they represent including his patron the illegitimate president gma must be confronted head on with the full force of the law and our democracy. Their prosecution and eventual punishment will forever change the narrative which have the last few years have been trampled with impunity by gma and her supporters. The trial will exposed their activities and will send a powerful message to future leaders of our country to listen and work for the interest of the Filipinos and provide them a better life. Their supporters will do everything they can to used the same tactic their patron gma to manipulate the legal system, try to destroy our sense of decency and fairness, threatened our sense of security and instill fear in our soul to bend us to their will. Let us all remain vigilant on impeachment hearing and ensure it meets the wishes of the Majority of the Filipinos. The removal of corona is our goal and will bring an acceptable conclusion for our desire to clean our society of opportunist and pretenders

    Now we know why Midas Marquez has this dogged devotion to his master, Thief Justice Corona. He was not only appointed Supreme Court administrator and concurrent spokesman by Corona. He was named project director of the billion-peso World Bank-funded project that was supposed to reform the judiciary.

    All we got were half truths and outright lies from this bureaucrat who thought everything he touches turn into gold.

    Marquez must be made to account for the funds he had mismanaged or misused. And Corona should be made to account with him as well, under the principle of command responsibility.

    You asked for your day in court? Now you’ll get an awful heck of it when the charges of graft are filed against you.

  • Percy Reyes

    Ramon Eaquerra’s comment: “He said it was the high court as a whole, and not Corona alone, that should respond to the accusation.” How can Esquerra make such a comment that the high court as a whole should respond when Corona is the LEADER of the Judiciary and the Supreme Court. He alone is responsible for the performance and non-performance of the organization.

    Furthermore, quoting from the article above: “According to the World Bank, the diminished internal auditing mechanism in the high court was exemplified by Corona’s appointment of one man as court administrator, head of the Public Information Office, and chair of the Bids and Awards Committee.” This is a major reason for the mismanagement of the project and fund. It is an action SOLELY MADE BY CORONA AS LEADER, a personal decision that reflects the quality or lack of it regarding his management skills. He assigned these responsibilities to Midas Marquez. Now, Ramon Esquerra wants to pass the responsibility to the high court as a whole. He wants the WHOLE SUPREME COURT TO ANSWER for the IRRESPONSIBLE ACT OF ITS LEADER.

    Corona deserves Esquerra as one of his defense lawyers indeed!

    Nakoh!

    Tameme at super quiet yata today sa forum na ito ang mga bayarang writers ni Corona at GMA!! Ha Ha! 

    The facts presented by the World Bank’s aide memoire speak for themselves. A disinterested third party — na walang paki whatsoever sa partisan politics natin — censuring Corona and Marquez for their mishandling and even abuse of WB funds.

    All that government critics say are rubbish — foul! demolition job! trial by publicity! being assumed guilty even before being proven innocent!!

    Nakoh naman, mga manay! Command responsibility na lang, mga mare at pare, — kung gets ang principle na ito ng mga bayarang forum writers ni Corona at GMA.

    Nagbigay ng pera ang WB sa SC para gamitin for reforms of our judicial system. Di ginamit ng maayos at nawaldas pa. At si Corona at Marquez ang may tangan ng pisi sa mga pondong ito. Kahit naman siguro low IQ ay gets ito, di po ba?

    While this World Bank report, as disclosed by the Inquirer, may not be directly relevant to the impeachment trial of Corona, it clearly and concretely reinforces further what is now the widely-held perception by many Pinoys of Corona as chief justice — CORRUPT, GREEDY, AN IRRESPONSIBLE PUBLIC OFFICIAL UNWORTHY OF ANY SENIOR POST IN OUR GOVERNMENT.

    Pag di masakyan ang huli kong sinabi ng mga bayaran ni Corona at GMA na sina Lolo-Basyong,

    Success in the judiciary doesn’t just happen. It is nurtured every single day with display of honesty, integrity, creative writing and wisdom. Success in the judiciary is further made more rewarding by earning a good reputation over years of practice that is acknowledged by people in and out of the court premises.
     
    But once tainted by perceptions of dishonesty, flip-flopping decisions and corruption, the days of a compromised magistrate is over.
     
    A magistrate’s time is finally up when he is indicted in the public’s eyes.
     
    That is what is happening to CJ Renato Corona…a sad ending to a rich kid’s saga. A man from a good pedigree… good lineage ….who played his cards right at the start … but ended up in the floors of public condemnation and humiliation for failing to ward off material temptations that came his way. He should have realized when enough was enough of material riches.
     
    This was Corona’s pitfull. This was CGMA’s pitfull as well.
     
    Corona’s only recourse….resign…. get out of public view…. lick his wounds (both physical and spiritual) and move on from there.
     
    Sayang. Sayang talaga!

    Calling COMMISSION ON AUDIT and the OMBUDSMAN!!!!!

    The World Bank report tackled by this Inquirer report indicates funds misuse and even thievery at the Supreme Court under the command responsibility of Corona and Marquez.

    Can’t you be pro-active and conduct your respective probes and made the two gentlemen account for the funds which might have been misused and lost?

    Please don’t sit on your butt and say that — “Oh, well, no complaint(s) has yet been filed with our office. So, we’ll sit back and watch and relax.”

    The SC’s refund of the WB monies that have gone missing and can’t be accounted for isn’t good enough.

    People who stole those monies for their own personal and selfish use should be made to return them.

    SC funds — which are people’s money — should NEVER, NEVER be used to refund the missing WB funds as the public didn’t benefit at all from these monies ostensibly stolen by kleptomaniacs at the SC.

    Now that the anti-graft campaign has gained increasingly strong momentum, COA and the Ombudsman should pro-actively pursue graft and corruption cases whenever and wherever they see them — even if formal complaints have not been lodged with both offices.

    Pinoys expect no less from your agencies.

    An apt message for both sides….Corona and congress….
     
    “We cannot please everyone. In fact, we should not. Otherwise, we will end up pleasing no one. As soon as we take a position, right away there is opposition. So the best thing to do is to take a stand and face the consequences of our decision. In the end, may we not have regrets that in our efforts to please man and ourselves, we did not do what is pleasing to God.”

    The World Bank conducted their investigation over a 3 week period & were able to publish their findings in about 2 months. If that same investigation was undertaken by the Philippine agencies everyone involved would be dead of old age by the time the report was published. Why is that?

      Apparently, there is a high tech audit system available. But, when everyone’s finger is in the pie, so to speak, no one wants to know about it. Very unfortunate, indeed. It’s up to every individual to be vigilant and to ensure that the politicians they elected in office will place the necessary deterrent to discourage  illegal and immoral activities. If the elected official do not measure up to your expectation and to his promises to you, replace him in the next election. True power belongs to the electorate (the people). You do not need to continue to cop anyone’s’ lies and deception. It’s the least you can do. It is a right of every citizen, to have a suspected anomaly investigated whether he’s the President or the SCJ. If the individual is exonerated in the end, then good. But this democratic process cannot be halted unless you have an ulterior motive.

    Looks like your brain is located somewhere else inside your body other than your head!!

    You know why?

    Because Pinoys in general should actually welcome — not shun — disclosure of this type of document which points to thievery of public funds which your children digihaus and yourself could potentially benefit from in terms of expanded public services had monies not stolen by kleptomaniacs at the SC under the Corona-Marquez watch.

    In very simple terms, kung ninakawan ka ng kapitbahay mo e kibit balikat ka pa rin?

    Saan napunta ang kukote mo? Sa etchasan ng mga kambing at kalabaw?

Hintayin na lang ang explanation ng Supreme Court, at saka tayo magbigay ng konklusyon.

    Success in the judiciary doesn’t just happen. It is nurtured every single day with display of honesty, integrity, creative writing and wisdom. Success in the judiciary is further made more rewarding by earning a good reputation over years of practice that is acknowledged by people in and out of the court premises.
     
    But once tainted by perceptions of dishonesty, flip-flopping decisions and corruption, the days of a compromised magistrate is over.
     
    A magistrate’s time is finally up when he is indicted in the public’s eyes.
     
    That is what is happening to CJ Renato Corona…a sad ending to a rich kid’s saga. A man from a good pedigree… good lineage ….who played his cards right at the start … but ended up in the floors of public condemnation and humiliation for failing to ward off material temptations that came his way. He should have realized when enough was enough of material riches.
     
    This was Corona’s pitfull. This was CGMA’s pitfull as well.
     
    Corona’s only recourse….resign…. get out of public view…. lick his wounds (both physical and spiritual) and move on from there.

    Hello, tama ka, puro pa-media lang ang paputok ng mga gustong sumira sa institutions of democracy sa bayan nating mahal. 

  • malek_abdul

    The previous government under GMA can be categorized as Kleptocratic form of government. Why? Because it is a government characterized by rampant greed and corruption. Almost all branches of the government from the executive, judicial and legislative down to the lowly barangays are governed by leaders who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the people and its national resources. This does not spare the SC under the watch of Renato Corona.

    “Esguerra said media reports on Corona’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, as
    well as the latest on the supposed fund mismanagement at the high
    court, were all part of “a pattern of harassment intended to demonize
    the Chief Justice in the eyes of the public.”

    “It’s very unfair,” he protested.”

    Is it not unfair to plunder the money loaned by the World Bank by Renato Corona? Is it not unfair that Midas Marquez abused his authority when he was the requestor of the services, the approver of the terms of reference, the end-user of the services provided by the firm, the authorizer of contract extensions, and the authorizer of payments to the firm.”

    Now they know the meaning of unfair. Allahu Akbar!!!

    • claipm

      Wait Malek, Supreme court. Corona can’t just withdraw the money by himself.  Basahin mong mabuti: nakareport lahat ang paggamit ng pera. At si Corona ay hindi pa makapagcomment dahil kahit sya mismo d nya alam ang sinabi ng World Bank.  Common sense, kung world bank yan dapat si Corona muna ang dapat makaalam ng pananaw ng world bank at hindi s Lim Ubac. Parte nga kasi ito ng black propoganda o mga opportunist to earn money at the expense of the person. Wlang sinabi ang world bank na may perang hindi liquidated nalate lang.  So let us gift the benefit of the doubt. Wait for the explanation of the Supreme Court.  Pag supreme court Corona agad pero yung mga kabaro mo laging sinasabi si Corona lang ang target nila hindi supreme court. ANo ba talaga?

      • malek_abdul

        claipm, I appreciate your observation to my comments but if you will analyze what is written in this article and my comment…they are in cognizance with each other. I was just reacting on some phrases in the articles which I quoted. It is a command responsibility on the part of Renato Corona being the chief of the SC to moderate and check the expenses of the judiciary. The approving authority of Midas Marquez is way above the standard norm of a court administrator.

        “Corona can’t just withdraw the money by himself.” – If Corona can’t just withdraw the money by himself then how come Marquez who is only a court administrator can disburse up to half a million pesos?

        “Basahin mong mabuti: nakareport lahat ang paggamit ng pera” – Paano nagamit ang pera kung hindi winidthraw?

        “The Supreme Court under the watch of Chief Justice Renato Corona has been weighed and found wanting.”

        I suggest that you too read again the article and analyze it carefully. I am not anti nor pro-Corona. Am not even pro-Pnoy. I am anti graft and corruption. All I wanted is that Mindanao should also be given top priority for development. Sala’am…Allahu Akbar

    “Asked to comment, Ramon Esguerra, a spokesperson of Corona’s legal

    He said it was the high court as a whole, and not Corona alone, that should respond to the accusation.”

    This is just painfully funny. When Corona is getting ctriticized and eventually impeached – he , his spokesman Midas Marquez, and all his allies , vehemently retorted that this is an attack against the judicial system and thus against democracy itself. You can hear that soundbite over again whenever they are interviewed. Now, there has been financial irregularities that a foreign entity has discovered within the Supreme Court, and his lawyers now claim this not the sole responsibility of Corona but the Supreme Court as a whole. For which, if I may add, Corona is the leader and from where the buck stops. Same as to the presidency and the executive branch. The truth seems to apply only when convenient to these people.

    Yang loan na yan, panahon pa yan ni Reynato Puno… nai-extend lang noong panahon ni Corona…

    tapos ang idinagdag lang sa panahon ni Corona ay 0.5million, ganun lang pala kaliit..

    pero…..

    bastos talaga ang yellow media, hindi si Corona ang nasisira dito kundi ang buong Supreme Court…

    ano
    ba kasi sabi ni Grand Master Conrado de Quiros, i-abolish na ba ang

    For a loan that was granted in 2003, CJ Corona is being vilified. Disbursement for the most part must not have been under his watch, but despite this, apparently, they point the blame on him! This is but the trademark blame game of this administration, even in cases such as this evidently misleading the public. Utter neglect of decency and being fair are definitely wanting in their moral ascendancy campaign.

    • Handiong

      Backstroke, there you are again, with your confused mind. 

       The World Bank said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

      Latter half of 2011, last year yun. Anong pinagsasabi mong hindi time ni Corona?

      “Significant increase in the disbursement.” Nagmamadaling simutin ang pera. Siguro natunugan na niyang may impeachment case na darating.

      By the way, it is a World Bank report. Hindi galing sa Aquino Administration yan.

      • backstroke

        Must have been computer generated…or with your Authentication!!! With all these allegations being fed to the pubic all your prosecutors can boast of are evidences not acceptable in the impeachment court…after the long period of wait the session had to be suspended…the prosecution is not prepared at all!…fabricating every conceivable reports and misdeeds …misleading the pubic…all these have consumed the prosecution…trial by publicity…at the expense of sessions of the Impeachment trial being postponed …at the expense of PEOPLE’S MONEY!

  • OFW_Dubai

    “The review uncovered, among others, “inaccurate/incomplete information”
    on the project’s financial management report, “diminished existing
    internal check-and-balance mechanism,” purchase of information
    technology equipment outside of the agreed procurement plan, and the
    practice of borrowing funds from the loan for the justices’ foreign
    travels, paid to a travel agency owned by lawyer Estelito Mendoza.”

    This is what Mickey Mouse World Bank gets for being nosey and giving loans to an illegitimate president in 2003 none other than Gloria M Arroyo. Stop extending loans and telling the country what they need to do like you are a babysitter.

  • backstroke

    The authenticity of this report has not yet been verified with THE CJ not being able to read the said memoire after all this time. Probably this report originated somewhere else, the reason why the SC was not furnished.

  • rudy_boy

    Really? You know everything about CJ…is that you..Midas?

  • sacrebleau

    From behind prison walls we hear a midget’s voice saying: “It’s the economy, student!” While totally engrossed in doctoring his SALN, corona lifts his head for a second and says: “My family is of no ordinary means” – then goes back to fudging figures, sweating profusely. Ehe ehe he he.

    Meanwhile, Corona’s girlfriend Midas was stopped seconds before going on-air wearing a tutu.

  • Handiong

    Now we know why Atty. Estelito Mendoza has a great clout with Corona. Mendoza’s travel agency is the favored travel services provider of the Supreme Court. 

    Mendoza:  “CJ, I have a travel agency. Pwede ba, akin na lahat ng travel requirements nyo? Yung funded by World Bank. Dollars yun, di ba?”

    Corona: “Ang lagay ba naman…”

    Mendoza:  “Ay, oo. Meron SOP yan. Ikaw pa.”

    So, by a mere letter by Atty. Mendoza to the Supreme Court, decisions that are final and executory can be recalled.

    Neat.

    • sacrebleau

      Hehe, mafia.

      Pwede rin ganito:

      Corona: Bakit hindi tayo magtayo ng travel agency?

      Mendoza: Brilliant idea! Pwede nating i-launder ang WB funds!

      Corona: Tawagin natin si Midas para i-outline ang details.

      [[At this point Corona calls Midas]]

      Corona: Sweetie, can you come in here for a minute?

      In an aide memoire, the World Bank said that since Corona assumed his post in mid-2010, progress in reforming the judiciary “has been rated unsatisfactory,” with “implementation delays and additional work required for smooth project closing.” 

      • emma_ele

        to Lito G

        Mabuti ang intention ng World Bank to remind the course of the project within the SC.  Kasi nga patapos na to,  kailangan na ng evaluation.  And the rating was unsatisfactory,  so kailangan pa ng attention and more hard work to end the project smoothly.  With the length of time and with several exchanges of hands while the projects was still open,  there is big pecentage of error.   And there is big chance also that this error can be corrected. 

        Masama lang dito ang pagka-interpret ng media kasi sila nga mismo nang-iintriga para magkaroon ng malisya ang mga mambabasa..    O baka masama lang talaga ang intention ng taong nag-umpisa ng tsismis na to.

      • Mark Suarez

        I agree with your argument emma.

        But at the end of the day, sino magbabayad ng $199,900?

        nalagyan siguro ng malisya ng writer ang report na ito, but we cannot deny the fact na
        kelangan bayaran ni juan dela cruz ang refund na $199,900.

      • emma_ele

        To Mark Suarez

        I agree with your concern,  I am a taxpayer because I have my own business too.  Give chance for the SC to comment on this matter.   I think you agree with me that we have democracy.  So let the Worl Bank finish their business with the SC.   And later,  officially,  let us all react.. Thank you Mark..

    MALAYONG-MALAYO ang interpretation ni Pnoy/Abad sa talagang sinabi ng

    Like any World Bank funded project, tinutulungan ng WB ang

    na talaga namang pinoysamalacanang

    In a memo dated 28 Dec 2010,ang instruction ng World Bank kay AJ De Castro ay confidentiality
    as World Bank was evaluating the project and providing recommendations to improve the procedures.

    Wala namang accusations of  wrongdoing. Baka ikaw lang ang nag-feed nyan conclusion na yan sa reporter ng Inquirer.

    kahit minsan ay walang binanggit na pangalan ni corona o midas sa report at wala rin sinabi ang World Bank na may wrongdoing si corona o midas.  Baka ikaw lang ang nag conclude nyan para dun sa reporter ng Inquirer.

    ikaw pinoysahongkong kuno ang isa sa mga nagkakalat na 45 ang properties ni corona.
    yun pala 5 lang. Wala kang CREDIBILITY. Sigurado akong nasa payroll ka ni noynoy para magsulat ng Kasinungalingan at Imbento sa blogs.

    ITIGIL na yang IMPEACHMENT na yan, para MAPUTOL na ALLOWANCE nipinoysamalacanang.

    ANOTHER SMEAR JOB vs. CORONA.

    The amount of P 8M can easily be recovered through an arrangement with the supplier where a disapproved item (ex. laptap) can be exchanged with an approved item (ex. desks, tables) or where disapproved items be returned and refunded.

    The report should not have been presented with malice as the finding was still under deliberation, therefore preliminary and needs confirmation as the project is progressing. 

  • a1phantom

    The question here is that only the Department of Finance can borrow.  World Bank would be stupid to lend to a government entity that does not earn any revenue.  World Bank can only lend to either the Central Government or Department of Finance or to Government owned Corporations.  The Department of Finance can then in turn lend the money to the Supreme Court….if there is any mismanagement here…the blame of the mismanagement should go to the Department of Finance.

        Look again at the site…the loan was made by the Republic of the Philippines through the Department of Finance….and therefore management of the loan is by the Department of Finance.

        Purpose of the loan is for the Philippine Judicial Reform.

        As such, any mismanagement of the loan is the responsibility of the Department of Finance.

        Please look at:

        http://web()worldbank()org/external/projects/main?Projectid=P066076&theSitePK=40941&piPK=73230&pagePK=64283627&menuPK=228424

        Do more extensive research first at nagpahahalata na nagpapadala ka sa emotions mo sa mga posts mo dito kaya kung ano ano na lang nasasabi mo kahit walang basis.

        ung () palitan mo ng dot

      • Mark Suarez

        Brod ang republic of the philippines ofcourse ang borrower pero ang implemeting agency is SC, sila ang gumagamit, sila ang gumagastos.
        now if may pananagutan man Finance, mas malaki pananagutan ng SC kasi sila ang
        nagmamanage ng pera at sila ang gumagastos

      • BatangSingapore

        lumalabas na fabricated ang kabuuan ng balita.  hindi man lang nabangit ang Finance Department hahhahahahhaha.

      • Mark Suarez

        basahin mo na lang ang website ng WB para malaman mo.

         it doesnt mean kulang ang isang bagay ay fabricated na sa kabuuan.

      • Handiong

        Anong pakialam ng Finance Department dito? Di ba dinidiin ng Supreme Court na meron silang “fiscal autonomy”? Ayaw nilang pakialaman ng iba ang kanilang pera? Bakit kailangan banggitin ang Finance Department?

      • a1phantom

        No one in the Philippines can borrow in behalf of the Republic of the Philippines except the Finance Department….Note also that no bank will lend to any party unless that party has the capability to make revenue on its own….As can be seen in the website of worldbank….the borrower for this loan is the Republic of the Philippines (through the Department of Finance)….and the Supreme Court is the implementing agency for the project as the funds were used for the Judicial system…..The loan is therefore managed by the Finance Department

      • Mark Suarez

        Borrower ang RP. at ang RP ang magrerelease lang ng fund for SC., pero ang implementing agency ang SC, means sila ang gagastos,
        sila ang magdedecide at magmamanage how to use the funds. now kung  may  misuse of funds dito,  kasalanan ito ng SC.

        no one can dictate SC how to use the funds as mandated by the constitution on SC’s fiscal autonomy, though may conditions and WB how to use the fund since utang nga ito
        from them. therefore, SC pa din ang magmamanage ng utang from WB with respect to WB’s condition.

        edi ang mangyayari na lang e kung ang isang government agency misused their funds release by DBM, pananagutan na ba ito DBM? kaya nga inaudit ang paggastos  budget na release for a goverment agency para malaman kung nagastos ito sa dapat pagkagastusan .

      • Handiong

        It may be true that the Republic of the Philippines through the Finance Department negotiated for the loan, but it is the Supreme Court, as the implementing agency, that controls the funds. Again, let us not forget that the Judiciary is jealous of its “fiscal autonomy”. It does not even want the Department of Budget and Management to meddle with its budget.

        So, to hold the Finance Department accountable for the use of the funds is not right. All requests for withdrawals from the loan are presented directly by the Supreme Court’s Program Management Office to the World Bank. The Finance Department has no role whatsoever.

      • a1phantom

        Please find the World Bank Summary report on the Project.  The World Bank even complimented Corona for speeding up the implementation process as compared to the previous CJs.

        The development objective of the Judicial Reform Support Project for Philippines is to support an accessible judicial system that would foster public trust, and confidence. For the financing of a total project cost of US$24.4 million, the International Bank of Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) loan comprises US$21.9 million and the government contribution US$2.5 million. The project could not be completed by the original closing date of December 31, 2009, and the closing date was extended by 18 months, to June 30, 2011. However, this extended period has not been sufficient to complete the project, due to (i) limited implementation and coordination capacity in the implementing agency; (ii) lengthy procurement processes; (iii) changes in the judiciary leadership (although the pace of implementation has picked up under Chief Justice Renato Corona’s leadership more than $1.3 million has disbursed in the first half of calendar 2011 alone) and (iv) the very severe 2009 tropical storm Ondoy which set back implementation into early 2010 due to damage to courts and records. The modifications comprise (i) a one-year extension of the closing date from June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012, (ii) reallocation of loan proceeds, (iii) cancellation of an amount of US$0.5 million from the loan proceeds, and (iv) dated covenants for cancellation, at the Bank’s discretion, of activities and associated loan proceeds if agreed implementation milestones are not met. There are no changes to components but there are modifications to some activities within components, as indicated in the procurement-cum-implementation plan. These changes have no implications for the development objectives. The allocations for contracts to be entered into during the extension period are summarized below these are in line with agreed priorities.

      • a1phantom

        Please find further excerpts of the World Bank report dated June 2011 regarding this project.  The World Bank is giving Corona compliments for his good leadership regarding this project.

        As of June 27, 2011 an amount of US$13.88 million has disbursed (63.4%). About 40%of the results have been achieved after seven years of implementation. The project iscurrently in “U” status for DO and IP. However, based on recent progress (includingresults reporting, upturn in implementation pace and disbursements, faster procurementprocessing, safeguards compliance, and active leadership by Chief Justice Corona andother Justices) the team proposes to upgrade the IP rating to “MU” while keeping the DOrating at “U”. The Court has prepared a credible procurement-cum-implementation planfor the proposed extension period, and the Bank has agreed with the Court and with theoversight bodies that the extension will be considered on condition that if keyimplementation milestones are not met by the agreed dates, the activities and theassociated loan amounts would be cancelled at the discretion of the Bank and withoutfurther notice to the Borrower or the implementing agency (i.e. the Supreme Court).

      • a1phantom

        The cancellation of the USD .5 million loan as indicated above was done in June 2011…this is just after a report was released by World Bank that Corona was doing a good job inimplementing the project….the reason fro the cancellation was to focus support on “wrap up ” activities

      • Handiong

        Where does it say that the $0.5 million was cancelled in June 2011.?

        The expiry date of the loan was extended for another 12 months from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. The extension was agreed upon in June 2011. One of the conditions for extending the expiry date of the loan was, and here I’ll quote you, “that if key implementation milestones are not met by the agreed dates, the activities and the associated loan amounts would be cancelled at the discretion of the Bank and without further notice to the Borrower or the implementing agency.” It doesn’t say that the $0.5 million was cancelled in June 2011. How could it be cancelled when they just extended the expiry date of the loan?

        The final tranche of $0.5 million was cancelled as a result of the review conducted on October 24-November 11, 2011.

      • a1phantom

        Please refer a letter date June 30, 2011 from the World Bank to Sec Purisima regarding the cancellation of the USD 0.5 million as the World Bank wanted to focus on wrp up activites.  This can be seen in rge Worl Bank official website.

      • Handiong

        The World Bank summary report must have been written in the first half of 2011 since the figure of $1.3 Billion was up to the first half of 2011 only.

        But, that was before the review of the program in the second half of 2011. As the news article said, the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

        The results of the review were contained in the aide memoire dated December 28, 2011. 

        “The document detailed the results of a fiduciary review conducted by a World Bank task team on Oct. 24-Nov. 11, 2011, through discussions with justices of the high court and field visits to courts all over the country.”

        The program implementation may have started out okay, but, here’s what the aide memoire said:

        “The review discloses that the fiduciary environment pertaining to JRSP implementation has so deteriorated that the task team now rates the JRSP as a ‘high risk’ and ‘unsatisfactory’ on project management, project procurement and financial management dimensions, and observes that project financial statements can no longer be relied upon.”

        So, I think that describes the present condition of the program under Corona.

      • a1phantom

        Is the aide memoire in the World Bank website? What is the name of the aide (I hope not Tupas)?

      • Handiong

        No, I don’t think it will appear in the website. But, if you are doubting its authenticity, so far the World Bank has not denied its existence.

        I hope you’re just trying to be “cute”. An aide memoire (it’s a French term) simply means a memorandum. The literal translation is “aid to memory”. 

        The aide memoire was prepared for discussion with the Supreme Court. The aide memoire is usually used in diplomacy as a position paper that contains major points of discussion or agreement. Since it is still subject to discussion, I don’t think it will be posted on the website.

      • a1phantom

        Well…this press report only came out today….it may take some time before any statement from the World Bank can be released because of its bureaucracy

      • Handiong

        But if there is something false in the news item, I’m sure the World Bank will immediately react. There’s a World Bank country representative in Manila. A short statement can be easily issued. Bureaucracy, my foot.

      • a1phantom

        You dont know how multilaterals work…i know….a simple loan would take World Bank several months to approve as compared to a commercial bank which may take only a few weeks.

        Even by commercial bank standards, just to released a statement would need to be approved by the Compliance Group, by the Legal Group, by the Communications Group, by the country head, by the regional head, and even by the Executive Management Committee….and this is a very political matter which could potentially embarass the Philippine president

        Do you ever ask why a copy of the aide memoire was never presented to the press or public???

      • Handiong

        We are not talking of loan processing here. We are talking of a statement from World Bank denying or disowning an aide memoire that has been reported in the press. 

        How could the aide memoire embarrass the Philippine President? It could embarrass the Chief Justice, as he is being embarrassed now, but not the President. The President is not accountable for the acts of the Chief Justice, or the Supreme Court, for that matter.

      • a1phantom

        The aide memoireis supposed to support Aquino on his desire to impeach Corona….if they deny the existence of this aide memoire…it implies that the Aquino side has been desperately trying to spread black propaganda against Corona….

      • Handiong

        The President is too intelligent to use the World Bank in black propaganda. You are so naive. I should say you are so desperate to wish out of existence a World Bank aide memoire that is damaging to your idol, Corona.

        Wishful thinking will not save your idol.

      • a1phantom

        Are you putting Noynoy Aquino and Intelligent is the same sentence???….even most of the Aquino supporters in the government knows that Aquino has no brains……this is the same Aquino who couldnt pass one single bill/law in the congress nor in the senate….this is the same Aquino who has nothing to show for his education

        As I said..who should I believe, an Official World Bank report praisng Corona and which is readily accessible from the World Bank website…or a supposedly aide memoire where no one knows where it came from, no official statement from the world bank,  no existing copy and which is the opposite of the official world bank report

      • Handiong

        Your opinion about PNoy is yours, and yours alone.

        See? You are still trying to wish out of existence the World Bank aide memoire, wishing with all your might that the document did not exist. Go on with your wishful thinking, if it makes you feel better.

  • http://twitter.com/junmeromi Eliseo Mercado

    This project was implemented during the time of CJ Davide… Is inquirer reporting correctly? Or it is part of the mob?

    • Handiong

      Hoy, Eliseo, ikaw ba yung OMI na pari? Anong kinalaman ng PDI sa report? It is just reporting an aide memoir from World Bank dated December 28, 2011. Are you again shooting the messenger? That’s the style of Gloria and her cohorts. Whenever there is a report that is adverse to them, they shoot the messenger.

      Even if the project was started during the time of CJ Davide, it did not end during his time.  The expiry of the loan was originally on December 31, 2009, but it was extended to June 30, 2012. The loan was not released one-time. It was like a credit line and the SC draws from it as the need arises. The review was  “triggered by several withdrawal applications which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

      You just read that it was a brainchild of CJ Davide and you already concluded that the project was wholly implemented during his term. Read again the whole news item and this time take the effort to understand. Don’t let your bias for GMA and her cohorts affect your faculty of comprehension.

      • BatangSingapore

        Hoy Handiong, para sa kaalaman mo ha… hindi ka dapat gumagawa ng news article na walang laman.  diyan masisira kredebilidad mo.

        kaya nga may tinatawag na tabloid, kasi medyo malapit na PDI dun kapag ganyan uri ng panunulat ang ginagawa.

        so ngayon alam mo na?  magsumbong ka na kay Lacierda na bakla.  sabihin mo sa kanya mag resign na sya dahil mas maraming magaling dito kesa sa kanya hahahhahahaha.  tutal meron na naman sya ng Apple laptops.

      • Handiong

        BatangSingapore, wala ka namang sinasabing iba puro insulto lang. Ganyan kayong nakinabang sa corruption ni Gloria. Pag walang maisagot na matino, nang-iinsulto.

        Ipaliwanag mo nga kung bakit mali ang news item sa taas? O, baka wala ka na namang masabi, mang-iinsulto ka na naman.

      • BatangSingapore

        hanapin mo sino ang may sabi ng mga quote na kuno ay taga world bank.  dapat ang mga quoted words ay pinapangalanan kanino galing ok.

        ikalawa, walang sinabing official report from WB.

        ikatlo, pansinin mo yun nilalaman ng balita pinagdugtong dugtong.

        ikaapat, mali mali ang figure na sinasabi…”The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.”

        ikalima, dun sa item 4 na sinabi ko kailangan supported yan ng katibayan.  kasi maliwanag na alegasyon yan.

        CONCLUDED yun balita pero wala naman mga supporting documents.

      • Handiong

        BatangSingapore, my reply:

        1.  The news item above was based on a document called an aide memoire from World Bank. It was not based on an interview of somebody from World Bank, so don’t expect Inquirer to mention a name.

        2.  The official report from World Bank that you are looking for is already the aide memoire mentioned by Inquirer.

        3.  The news item quoted only pertinent portions of the aide memoire. It was not quoting the document in toto, or in its entirety. Don’t think that the quoted portions are all there is to the document. They are just the parts quoted by Inquirer.

        4.  So, what are the correct amounts? For your information, here’s what Midas Marquez said when interviewed by ABS-CBN: “He said the amount he was made to authorize was initially at P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000.”

        5. Since Marquez himself confirmed the figures, are you now calling Marquez sinungaling?

      • BatangSingapore

        1.  transparency ang kailangan ng bawat balita.  meron yan “source”  o pinangalingan ng document.

        2.  kung copy-paste dapat nilagay niya ang source or reference.  simple lang diba, jan pumapasok ang kredebilidad.

        3.  malinaw na fabricated ang balita at walang katotohanan.

        4.  “The court administrator was authorized to approve, on Corona’s behalf, payments of up to P200,000 which was later increased to P500,000, the World Bank said.”

        I’m referring to the quoted report by PDI, yun veracity.  Ang sagot ni Midas sa interview ng ibang station ay walang koneksyon sa tinutukoy ko kredebilidad ng report.

        5.  tulad mo idinudugtong mo ang report ng PDI sa interview ng ibang station.  hindi na kapani paniwala.

      • Handiong

        1. Are you saying that the document is fake? Whoever gave the document to Inquirer is irrelevant, unless you are saying that the aide memoire is fake and was only fabricated by the “source”. At any rate, the Inquirer is being transparent. It said that the source of the aide memoire is the World Bank. And so far, I have not read any report that World Bank is denying the authenticity of the aide memoire. I have not read any report that World Bank is denying the news report in the Inquirer.

        2.  Again, the quotations came from the aide memoire. The reference of the quotations is the aide memoire. Are you asking for the paragraph number and page number of the quotations as references? You are being ridiculous. You are making unreasonable demands in your desire to discredit the news item. As I have said, there has been no denial from the World Bank. Everything that was reported by Inquirer must be true.

        3.  It is not clear that the news item is fabricated. What is clear is that the news item is true. No denial from World Bank.

        4.  You said that the figures (P200,000 and P500,000) in the Inquirer report were wrong. But, they are the same figures mentioned by Marquez. The reply of Marquez in his interview by ABS-CBN has a direct connection to the Inquirer report. In fact, the credibility of the Inquirer report was boosted by Marquez’s confirmation of the figures contained in the Inquirer report.

        5.  When I cited the ABS-CBN interview of Marquez, it is what is known as corroborative evidence. There is nothing wrong in corroborating a report by another coming from an independent source.

        Really, BatangSingapore, there is something radically wrong in your manner of reasoning.

        I think we have a clinical case here. Is there a psychiatrist in the house?

      • BatangSingapore

        Handiong,  matagal na ako nagbabasa dito sa PDI.  since nagbukas sila ng serbisyo sa internet ay dito ako kumukuha ng reliable na balita.

        nagkataon lang ng simula maglabasan ang mga black propaganda ng administrasyon abnoy ay nagkaroon na rin ng hindi balanseng pagbabalita.

        kung ganyan klase lamang ang gumawa ng news article ay kahit computer encoder ay uubra na magulat.  basta’t may quote kailangan ilagay mo ang source nito.  kapag hindi ay lalabas lamang na haka haka ito.

        ang sagot ni Midas sa ABS-CBN ay hindi pwedeng gamitin kredito upang bigyan ng kredebilidad ang unang ginawang news article ng PDI.  ganyan lang kasimple yan.

        pwede kasing maging ganito ang epekto niyan….halimbawa: “Si Handiong ay isang pro-abnoy, kahit itanong mo pa kay Mark”

        e paano kung hindi sagutin ni Mark, nangangahulugan na hindi ka pro-abnoy, gayon malinaw naman na totoo ang quoted words diba.

        ang tamang panunulat ay ganito…. “si Handiong ay panatikong Pro-Abnoy, sapagkat pinatunayan niya ito habang kami ay nagpapalitan ng kuro kuro”.

      • Handiong

        I’ll let your statement that PDI’s reporting is not balanced pass. It’s a very subjective view. It’s the view of someone who does not like what he reads. It’s called “shooting the messenger”.

        What do you mean by “source”? Is “source” for you always a person? The source of the PDI news report is a document, not a person.

        The reply of Marquez during the interview by ABS-CBN is very relevant because Marquez and ABS-CBN were exactly talking about the Inquirer news report itself.  So, by confirming the figures in the Inquirer news report, Marquez was giving credence to the news item. Your bizarre example does not apply here, because Marquez answered and confirmed that the Inquirer report was true.

        I think you are suffering from a cognitive bias called “backfire effect” – evidence that disconfirms your beliefs only makes them stronger. In short, you are a biased person.

      • BatangSingapore

        may responsibilidad kasi ang manunulat.  kahit nga ang spelling ay pwedeng maging sanhi ng malusaw na kredebilidad.

      • Handiong

        Sinabi naman ng manunulat ng PDI na ang source niya ay ang aide memoire ng World Bank. Hindi pa ba sapat yan? Wala namang denial galing sa World Bank. Ibig sabihin authentic ang source document, hindi fabricated.

        Alam mo, kahit kailan man, wala kang mababasang fabricated ang Inquirer news report o ang aide memoire ng World Bank.

      • BatangSingapore

        siempre yan ang depensa walang fabrication.  pero bakit hindi nilagyan ng source diba.

        tulad ng sabi ko sayo, eto lang PDI ang news na pinagkakatiwalaan ko.  nagkataon lang ng simula pumutok ang GMA-Arroyo issues parang hindi na talaga balanse ang balita dito.

        sana naman nagkakamali ako at bumalik ang dating balanse at kredebilidad ng mga balita dito.

        PERO AYAW KO SA ABS-CBN, puros kasinungalingan at may kinikilingan dun.

        so kung kikiling sila kay corona at arroyo balanse na ang PDI? at magtitiwala ka ulit sa PDI?

        kapag nakakita na ako ng balanse at tamang pagbabalita, malamang wala na ako dito sa PDI.  wala pa kasi ako makitang papalit sa kanila.

        but still naghihintay ako ng dating PDI.

      • Mark Suarez

        “sabi ko nga sayo hindi ito about those people. dun ako sa tama at makatotohanan.”

        If hindi ito about those people at papanig ka sa katotohanan, wala ka sana posts na may kinikilingan kang isang tao o grupo dahil
        sa pumapanig ka lang sa kanila whether katotohanan o hindi. dahil nga kototohanan ang pinapanigan mo, it doesnt matter kung sino man papanigan mo. pwede ka pumanig kay ganito o ganoon basta alam mong katotohanan un.

        nasanay ka kasi sa isang proseso sa ating bansa nakasanayan na noon , pero hindi sya ganoong ka epektibo.

        check my posts here, pumanig ako sa isang pro coronarroyo sa sinabi nya kasi may punto sya, kahit na anti coronarroyo ako.

        kahit inis na inis ako kay pandak nung nakaupo pa sya, pero pag may nagagawa naman sya maganda kahit papano sa bansa natin, hindi ko dinedeny na natuwa ako sa ginawa nya.

        kung patas ka, papanig ka sa katotohanan, whether si arroyo man o si pnoy o kung sino man ang pinag uusapan.

        saka ang mga atake mo dito kulang, kulang, halatang nadadala ka sa emotion mo dahil sa pag panig mo sa isang tao. like kahapon question mo ang article kung sino Office of the president which discredited mo na ang writer, kung nagbasa k ng mabuti edi malalaman mo malinaw kung sino tinutukoy.

        Pag aralan mo muna mga sinasabi mo dito kung talagang panig ka sa katotohanan, o baka pumapanig ka lang talaga sa isang tao o institution, at dahil sa pagpanig na un hindi mo na makita ang dapat mkita na may ginagawa na pala silang kabulastugan

        Ayan, ang pinag-uusapan naman natin kung ano ang sinabi ni Marquez sa ABS-CBN. Hindi naman ang ABS-CBN mismo. Kung hindi mo gusto ang sinabi ni Marquez dahil sa ABS-CBN niya yon sinabi, another case of “shooting the messenger” yan.

    “Thus far, the tribunal has spent $16.3 million (76 percent of the
    revised loan amount of $21.4 million, after deducting the $0.5 million).”

    $21.4million less $16.3million equals $5.1million not $0.5million. The writer’s computation is incorrect or maybe typographical error in writing $0.5million instead of $5.1million because if you deduct $0.5million from $21.4million you will have a difference of $20.9million. Allahu akbar

    “Esguerra said media reports on Corona’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, as well as the latest on the supposed fund mismanagement at the high court, were all part of “a pattern of harassment intended to demonize the Chief Justice in the eyes of the public. ‘It’s very unfair,’ he protested.”
    What’s unfair?  Had there been no formal impeachment filed against Renato Corona, these anomalies and misdeeds would not have brought out. Such revelations do not at all demonize the Chief Justice.  Now is the perfect time for the Chief Justice to prove to the Filipino people that he deserves the respect, honor and dignity of his office. The impeachment should never be seen as a concerted effort to demonize Corona, but only to give him hid due day in court.  He must first of all justify his midnight appointment by the president who is now under hospital arrest for charges of election sabotage, graft and corruption.

    the article is misleading and malicious because the wb had already acknowledged that refunds had already started and they are REQUESTING and not DEMANDING the completion of refunds by 31 jan 12.

    the memo was classified and should be treated as confidential because the wb itself  had said that, some of the information in it are still to be COMFIRMED.

    possible suspects that leaked the memo are the palace  moles and cj candidates: carpio and sereno or  abads’ daughter, the pms chief who incidentally is married to an expat working at wb, see the connection?

        wala naman ibang dahilan ang impeachment kundi HACIENDA LUISITA.

        ngayon pa lang isipin mo halimbawa na maalis sa pag ka CJ si corona.  then kakasuhan pa yan at dun pa lang uusad kung maibabalik sa Pilipinas ang nakaw na yaman kuno.

        parang hindi ka na natuto noong habulin ang mga Marcos.  may naibalik ba sa atin?  si Cory din may pasimuno ng ganyan.  dibat nagkanda hirap hirap lang tayo.

      • orangec5

        at BatangSingapore – Hindi na importante dito kung personal na makikinabang ka sa maibabalik na nakaw na yaman o hindi.Ang importante dito ang issue ng accountability – MANAGOT ang dapat managot! Ang gusto mo bang mangyari hayaan na lang natin si Gloria o yung mga ibang nagnakaw sa mga ginawa nyang kabulastugan nuong administrasyon nya dahil wala ka namang magiging personal na pakinabang kung hahabulin sya ng hustisya?

      • BatangSingapore

        bugok, paano managot e sinasabi ko na nga na ang IMPEACHMENT AY PARA LANG PABABAIN SI CORONA BILANG CHIEF JUSTICE.

        hindi sya mananagot sa mapaguusapan sa SENADO.  yun korte na tunay na abogado ang pwede lang magpanagot sa kanya.

        political hearing ang magaganap sa SENADO ok.  hindi sila ang magdedesisyon kung ilang taon makukulong ang akusado.  hindi sila ang magdedesisyon kung dapat at saan isosoli ang nakaw na yaman.

    para sa mga Pro-Abnoy, ngayon pa lang nakikita ko na kung bakit hindi nyo makita ang deprensya.

    ang Impeachment ay para lang pababain si Corona bilang Chief Justice.

    kung gusto nyo makulong yan at makuha ang nakaw na yaman kung meron man ay ipapasa pa yan sa korte.

    naalala ko tuloy si CGMA na karamihan sa inyo gustong gusto hindi makaalis ng bansa.  kasi inaakala ninyo makukulong.  o ayan nakakulong naman a sa hospital. hahhahahahha

    tandaan ninyo may legal at sibilisadong pamamaraan ang bawat mamayan sa hustisya.  sa ngayon ay IMPEACHMENT pa laman.  ang magiging desisyon diyan ay hindi para ikulong siya o isoli ang yaman kundi pababain lang siya bilang CHIEF JUSTICE.  ibig sabihin pwede na baligtarin ang issue ng HACIENDA LUISITA.  get nyo?

  • rcarandong

    the memo of the World Bank was just a progress report
    and talked about procedures and industry best practices relating to a SC project.

    the memo commended positive steps taken and recommended improvements on other areas.
    nowhere in the report did it say anything derogatory about corona. it was never personal as it was focused on the project and not the person.

    some sectors interpreted it maliciously and changed the positive tone of the report into a derogatory one.

    yes, it is all about Hacienda Luisita and Noynoy’s quest to take it back by removing corona ang putting a ROBOT who Noynoy can remotely control from Malacanang.

    • juanamboy

      To rcarandong:

      Ikaw naman, oo.  Don’t connect the supreme court world bank loan anomaly sa decision ng supreme court on hacienda luisita.  please don’t confuse the people, dahil wala pa yong decision sa hacienda luisita at as early as the 2010 presidential campaign ay binabanatan na ni Pnoy si corona as midnight appointee.  in fact, wala pa yong supreme court decision on hacienda luisita ng hindi nag-take oath si Pnoy before corona at inisnab pa nga ni Pnoy si corona.

      • BatangSingapore

        maaring tama ka kasi noong panahon na iyo ay dinidinig na ng hudikadura ang issue ng Hacienda Luisita.

        kaya ang naganap na isnaban ay senyales ng walang positibong kasagutan na paborable sa mga COJUANGCO.

        kaya sana huwag mo linlangin ang nagbabasa na ang pagdinig at desisyon ay iisa lamang sa kabuuan proseso ng legal at sibilisadong pamamaraan sa ating bansa.

    It appears that BatangSingapore is a Corona paid hackey.  The World Bank directly accuses the Supreme Court via its Thief Justice Corona of malversation of the money loaned to them. The SC spokesperson, Marquez should be included in the impeachment for he is the administrator of the money.  Buking na kayo diyan sa SC.  Saan niyo dinala ang perang inutang sa World Bank?  Pati pagkain, pamasahe at pocket money ay kinuha ninyo sa pera ng World Bank.  The spokesperson should be the one explaining the case.  No amount of denials will satisfy the World Bank unless they provide the receipts and rundowns of the money spent.

    HALA! HINDI NA MANGMANG ANG BUONG SAMBAYANAN SA GINAGAWANG BLACK PROPAGANDA NG GOBYERNO LABAN KAY CJ CORONA. DAHIL HINDI NIYO SIYA NASINDAK MAG RESIGN MAGKITA KITA NA LANG SA SENADO AT DUN IPALIWANAG NG BUONG BUO ANG MGA PARATANG SA KANYA.

    • orangec5

      Mag-resign man sya o hindi, matibay man ang ebidensya o hindi, the trial being political-  Corona is going down. Kahit umatungal at maputol ang litid ang lahat ng Coronaryo sa kadedebate – Corona is going down. HAHA

      • BatangSingapore

        isa ka pang TUNGAW pagagalitan ka ni Mark Suarez.  kelan pa mapuputulan ng litid ang debatehan dito sa PDI hahahhahahah.

        HOY MARK paliwanag mo kay orangec5 ano ibig ko sabihin sa bugok na yan hahahahhaha.

      • orangec5

        Ikaw ang bugok batang SingaPulpol, simpleng analogy lang wala ka. NYAHAHAA!

  • Malik62

    The irregularities in the WB findings happened during CJ Davide’s time.  How come media is implicating Corona on this?

    • Handiong

      No, Malik62, the program was the brainchild of CJ Davide, but the implementation extended beyond his term. Here’s a quote from the news article:

      It said the review was “triggered by several withdrawal applications” presented to the World Bank by the tribunal’s Program Management Office (PMO), “which seemed to signal a sudden and significant increase in the disbursement in the latter half of 2011.”

      It said “in the latter half of 2011.” It was only last year. Isn’t Corona already the Chief Justice? So, the implementation is still on-going. In fact, here’s another information from the article:

      “The loan was to expire on Dec. 31, 2009, during the incumbency of Chief Justice Reynato Puno. But the World Bank extended the closing date twice—first by 18 months (until June 30, 2011), and then by 12 months (until June 30, 2012).”

      We are reading the same news article, but I don’t know why we understand it differently.

  • BatangSingapore

    marunong ka pa sa gusto ko.  sinabi ko na nga sayo wala ako pinapanigan.  kulong nyo o limasin ninyo ang kayaman nila, wala ako pakeelam.

    ang sinasabi ko sa inyo na ngawa kayo ng ngawa na kesyo huwag patakasin si CGMA at parusahan.  pero gigil na gigil kayo ng ideretso lang sya sa VMMC.  ASAN ANG HUSTISYA NGAYON?  mga bugok kasi kayo hahahahhaha.

    sinasabi nyo naman ngayon corrupt ang CJ at nagnakaw ng pera ng bayan.  ano naman nirequest nyo IMPEACHMENT.   ASAN ANG HUSTISYA NGAYON?

    ginugulo nyo lang ang tamang proseso ng ating bansa puros kayo kaguluhan.  hindi kayo magisip ng tamang paraan upang makamit ng bawat isa sa atin ang hustisya.

    sinasabi ko sa inyo ang totoo ay nauubos lang ang pera ng dahil sa kung ano anong maling paraan ninyo sa paghabol ng mga corrupt kuno.  ang resulta IMPEACHMENT bababa lang sa pwesto then justice serve na.  BUGOK hindi pa ba malinaw sayo na for HACIENDA LUISITA lang yan at hindi talaga para sa atin.

    kung gusto nyo talaga ng tuwid na daan, hindi lang ang mga nasasangkot ang dapat kastiguhin.  lumingon ka din sa ibang panig at duon sangkatutak din.

    dahil malinaw ang laro natin dito sa PDI ay pang politika din kung kaya’t politika din ang binibigay ko sa inyo.

    • orangec5

      B0b0 anong marunong ako sa gusto mo eh yun din ang ibig sabihin ng gusto mo – na-rephrase lang. Kung di ka ba naman mangmang.

      B0b0 pana-panahon nga yan. Kung may nagawang mali si Pnoy, sampahan sya ng kaso pagkatapos ng termino nya for all I care. Nagkataon lang na panahon na ng paghuhukom kay Gloria at ng mga naging alipores nya – na nagkataon namang prinoprotektahan ng midnight appointee nyang si “Sheep” justice (sheep, tupa, tuta). Malaki man ang magastos o hindi sa paghahabol, kelangan habulin ang dapat managot. Hindi naman pwedeng pabayaan na lang makatakas o makawala ang mga kurakot sa kadihalanang sayang ang guguguling pera dito? Stupid!

      • BatangSingapore

        TUNGAW, unang una kung Siri gamit mo malamang maputulan ka ng litid hahahhahaha. kaso daliri lang gamit ko.  istupido na BUGOK.

        bukas gumising ka ng umaga at manood ka ng live ng Impeachment at ilista mo na lahat ng ibabato mo dito at sasagutin ko naman. tignan mo kung pano ko ingudngud yan pagmumukha mo.

        o sya gudnyt na sa inyong lahat.

        basta pagkatandaan lamang na pagkatapos ng Impeachment ay bababa lang si Corona as chief justice.  ayun serve na ang justice for Hacienda Luisita.

      • orangec5

        B0b0 ka nga talaga. As in niliteral pa talaga pati yung term na “litid”. Mangmang ka talaga sa analogy.

        Nakakatuwa nga na puro hacienda Luisita lang yung special mention mo samantalang napakaraming kasong patungkol sa pinaka-amo mong si “Gloria”. Bakit yun lang ba ang kaya mong ibato kay “PNoy”? Nyahahaha!

        Wag ka muna matulog. Baka matuluyan ka sa panaginip mo pag mapanaginipan mong nagugudgud na ang mukha at pride mo dahil sa mga walang kwentang arguments mo.

        Balik ka muna ng Kindergarten. Tinuturo na ata dun ang “basics” of analogy. NYAHAHA!

      “sinasabi nyo naman ngayon corrupt ang CJ at nagnakaw ng pera ng bayan.
       ano naman nirequest nyo IMPEACHMENT.   ASAN ANG HUSTISYA NGAYON?”

      BATA ang impeachment ay isang proseso na nasasaad sa konstitusyon at kasama dito ang Chief Justice, at hindi porket impeachment lang ang ginagawa kay corona wala ng hustisya.

      maghintay tayo sa mga susunod na kabanata  kung ma impeach si Corona, dapat ang kasunod nito sampahan sya ng kaso sa Sandiganbayan para mapanugatan sya sa kanyang criminal offenses kung meron man.

    My point is, we need to look the entire report first before we can make our own objective opinions.
    It is obvious that you’ve never work with sa mga puti.
    I have worked with them and I know what I am saying.
    Madami sa mga puti na yan ang magaling magtwist ng real facts.
    At the end of the study, usually pinapag-usapan ninyo yan.
    Dyan pwede mo sabihin kung bakit mali sila.
    Madaming beses kahit mali na sila pinapagpilitan pa rin nila na tama sila.
    Ang ginagawa nila, binabago nila mga statements ng mga tao para magfit lang sa gusto nila.
    Kaya madalas dapat mag-ingat tayo sa sabihin natin sa kanila kasi gagamitin nila yan laban sa iyo.
    Wag masyado magtiwala sa kanila kasi po madami po sa kanila ang sinungaling.
    You will never believe how they will lie into your face.
    Kaya wag basta maniwala sa mga isusubo na lang sa iyo.
    Yan ang real na tinatawag na PITIFUL LIFE.
    Yan ang tinatawag na hindi nag-iisip, OBOB!
    Kaya tignan mo sarili mo?

    Read the original copy of the study not a mere article.

    Kung ikaw ay once nagwork sa school papers ninyo, I am sure alam ninyo na ineedit pa yan para masmaganda at para pag-usapan.
    Let us read the original report first, know the real facts then saka tayo magngangangawa!

  • a1phantom

    It is funny that the aide memoire indicated that the World Bank said that since Corona assumed his post in mid-2010, progress in reforming the judiciary “has been rated unsatisfactory,” with “implementation delays and additional work required for smooth project closing.”
     
    However, in its June 28 2011 report, the World Bank was praising Corona for his leadership

    • Handiong

      Well, that’s for the World Bank to explain. I can speculate, but I’d rather not.

      • a1phantom

        Well the World Bank cannot explain anything because as of now, the aide memoire is just hearsay as a copy has not been shown tothe public.  An official World Bank report is however available in the World Bank website and is praising Corona for his leadership 

  • a1phantom

    World Bank report paper is normally written and endorsed by the World Bank Regional Vice President, Country Director, Sector Manager and Task Team Leader…..

  • a1phantom

    Any claims in the aide memoire can therefore be treated as hearsay as even the copy of the document was not presented tothe public…..it is also contrary to the official report released by World Bank in July 2012…….it is quite disturbing that right after the Aquino started attacking Corona….the World Bank’s perception of Corona changed from hero to villain….doesnt sound like the World Bank….or is the world bank flip flopping

    • Handiong

      You will say anything to discredit something that you find not to your liking.

      You are like everybody else who is against PNoy. If you do not like what you read or hear, you shoot the messenger, as if killing the messenger would kill  the message.

      • a1phantom

        Who is the messenger….we dont even know who is the messenger nor do we have a copy of the aide memoire….all we have right now is an official report from the World Bank praising Corona..and this report is readily accessible in the World Bank website

      • Handiong

        Okay, okay, to see is to believe. That’s what you are saying.

        Anyway, there will be further developments on this. Let’s just wait.

      • Handiong

        The messenger is the PDI reporter. You are doubting the veracity of the news report by insinuating that Mr. Ubac is reporting on something that is fraudulent. You are saying that the aide memoire does not exist, it’s just an invention of Mr. Ubac since no copy has been shown to the public, even if Mr. Ubac directly quoted parts of it. Didn’t it occur to you that Mr. Ubac must have seen the document that contains his direct quotations?

      • a1phantom

        Inquirer has a history of releasing news item without verifying its authenticity or providing sufficient information tosupportthe news item

      • Handiong

        See? You are again shooting the messenger. You are discrediting the Inquirer in the hope  that its message, that the World Bank has found that the fiduciary oversight over the JRSP has deteriorated under Corona, will also be discredited.

        If you really think that Inquirer has no credibility, why do you continue reading it online?

      • a1phantom

        What Inquirer should have done is to call up World Bank to verify the report.  They could have gotten any of the following:
        1) No comment
        2) Confirmed the report
        3) Denied the report

        As news reporters, this is their responsibility to verify the report….they cant put gossips in their front cover….verification is required.

        It is so easy to contact the appropriate people in the World Bank.  For convenience, Inquirer can contact any of the following who are directly involved in the transaction:

        Regional Vice President: James W. Adams
        Country Director: Bert Hofman
        Sector Manager: Anthony G. Toft
        Task Team Leader: Amitabha Mukherjee
        World Bank Tel No. – Manila, +632 637.5855 ext. 3003, 917-3003

      • Handiong

        Has it ever occurred to you that Mr. Ubac might have obtained the aide memoire directly from the World Bank?

        You are accusing Mr. Ubac of spreading rumors, impugning his integrity as a reporter. Shooting the messenger.

        Happy Wishful Thinking!

      • a1phantom

        If he received it directly from World Bank, he should have cited it in his news report that he got it directly from World Bank…..he could have given the name of the person who gave it to him…if the person’s identity doesnt want to be revealed..the next step is for Mr. Ubac to call up the World Bank and get some comments….even if the World Bank said that they do not have any comments, then that would be ok as Mr Ubac would have shown that he did his homework in trying to get verification on the report.

      • Handiong

        If you are really interested to verify the veracity of the aide memoire why don’t you call the World Bank since you have all the contact persons and their contact numbers? Or, call Mr. Ubac at the Inquirer?

        You want to “protect the people” and yet you don’t want to exert the effort to get the truth? You just sit on your fat *sses all day daydreaming and thinking wishfully? If you are sincere about your “responsibility” to “protect the people”, by now you should have verified the veracity of the aide memoire. But, you don’t do it because you are afraid that the truth might go against your daydreams and wishful thinking.

        Happy Daydreaming and Wishful Thinking!

      • a1phantom

        We continue reading Inquirer online to protect the people so that they wont easily be fooled from black propaganda

      • Handiong

        Owws? So, you are “Phantom, the Ghost who Walks”?

        Protect the people? Who are the messianic “We” who are out to protect the people from themselves? Who gave you the mandate “to protect the people”? Gloria?  With the way you think, people will want to protect themselves from you.

        Happy Wishful Thinking!

      • a1phantom

        Just responsible people who are protecting the people from malicious mongorers who cant even present any verification or evidence of their black propaganda.

      • Handiong

        Owws? “Responsible people” who create their own propaganda by daydreaming and wishful thinking?

        Happy Wishful Thinking and Daydreaming!

      • txtman

        It is very easy to make a very fraudulent report.
        I can make one and say it came from the world bank.
        Just cut and paste.
        Change some important words and names and you have a new report.
        Then the media will just say, ” my source is confidential.”
        Always ask for the original copy of the report bago magngangawa! 

      • Handiong

        Yeah, sure, everything that you don’t like is fraudulent. Mr. Ubac never said that his source was confidential. His source is the World Bank.

        Happy Wishful Thinking!

  • a1phantom

    There are a few contradicting items provided by the “supposedly” aide memoire and actual World Bank report which is accessible in the World Bank website:

    1)  World Bank praises Corona while the aide memoire is saying that Corona is a villain since he became Chief Justice.
    2)  The reason for the cancellation of the USD 0.5 million
    3)  Reasons of World Bank why the implementation didnt go as expected

    Pag walang corrupt walang mahirap. Bakit kaya ang Hacienda nasa cojuangco pa din? Bakit kaya ang coco levy sa kanila pa din? Bakit kaya buhay na buhay ang SMC ngayon? Gising nga kayo…. 

  • MangDolphy

     Bakit pinapayagan na Inquirer ang palitan ng pagmumurahan na ito? Sheer waste of readers’ time and comments space.

    ABS-CBN and [the] Philippine Daily Inquirer headlined the World Bank misuse loan [refer here]. What the Yellow Media maliciously ignored was [that] the WB project was implemented in 2003 under CJ Hilario Davide, Jr. whose son was endorsed by Noynoy Aquino (P-Noy) during the 2010 election. Sadly, [the] WB fund was audited during Renato Corona[‘s] watch. The head of the project committee was even another Justice. Not Corona.

    • Handiong

      The project was initiated during the term of CJ Davide, but the implementation is still on-going. Read and understand before you comment.

    Corruption in a POOR country.

    CORRECTION: Court Administrator Midas Marquez was not appointed by the incumbent chief justice. He was appointed on January 28, 2010 with the 15-man tribunal UNANIMOUSLY chose Midas Marquez over Atty. Jose Laurel IV, CA justices Apolinario Bruselas, Court of Tax Appeals Justice Francisco Acosta, Deputy Court Administrators Nimfa Vilches and Edwin Villasor, and SC legal counsel Edna Dino.

    “World Bank disowns JRSP report” according to the Manila Bulletin.

    So is the Inquirer going to pull this article and offer profuse apologies or not?

    • http://pinoy-politics.blogspot.com Monsi Serrano

      I spoke with my editor friend in Manila Bulletin about that disowning of the report, where did you get that info, from Corona or from Gloria?

      There are some people here who were saying that this corruption happened in 2003, time of Davide and Puno, but the WB reports emphasized that the problem happened in mid-2010 during the time of Corona. 

      • Consilium

        “World Bank disowns JRSP report” is a January 16, 2012 article on the Manila Bulletin online. Linking to it here seems to be forbidden so use a search engine to find it. It basically says the contents of this Inquirer article did not come from the World Bank.

        In light of that information I think the Inquirer should either reiterate its support for this article or retract it immediately.

    MALAKI DIN RESPONSIBILIDAD NG MANUNULAT.  KAILANGAN BALANSE AT WALANG KINIKILINGAN.

    ASAN NA KREDEBILIDAD MO NGAYON MR. LIM?

  • BatangSingapore

    WALA MAN LANG BALITA NILABAS SA PAG TANGI NG WORLD BANK.  DAANG MATUWID NA RIN ANG PDI.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

     May kaso na rin itong si Midas Marquez sa Ombudsman dahil sa mga irregularidad sa pondo ng Judicial Support Project sa halagang P8.6 million.

    Ano na kaya nangyari sa kasong ito?

  • http://cashadvancesus.com/ cash loans

    It seems that what the World Bank has done is clarify that it did not release the report to the media, but a careful reading of its statement shows that they did not deny the authenticity of the report itself. Details regarding the $21.9-million loan extended to the SC’s JRSP are genuine and also included a demand for the SC to refund the expenses that were not covered by the grant. Lacierda said that even Corona could not deny the existence of such a report, and neither could spokesman and SC Administrator Midas Marquez who was also implicated in the WB aide memoire.
