I will not surrender, says ex-Palawan governor

PNP hunts down suspected brains in broadcaster’s slay

By , ,

Former Palawan Governor Joel T. Reyes INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY—In a message from his hideout aired on Thursday, embattled former Palawan Governor Joel T. Reyes indicated he had no intention of surrendering now despite a warrant for his arrest for the murder of broadcast journalist Gerry Ortega.

In his recorded message played on dzIP, a radio station based here, Reyes did not say if he would at any time heed the clamor of senior government officials that he turn himself in. Instead, he indicated he would remain in hiding.

In Manila, a spokesperson for the Philippine National Police (PNP), Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr., said tracker teams had already been deployed to look for Reyes and his brother, Coron, Palawan, Mayor Mario Reyes.

Reacting to Reyes’ statements on radio, Cruz said: “The PNP will enforce the law without fear or favor.”

Without giving any indication on his whereabouts, the fugitive Reyes said he was hiding “sa inyong mga puso,” or “in the hearts of the people” of Palawan.

“Aking haharapin sa takdang oras ang mga paratang na ito (I will face these accusations at the right time),” Reyes said in his 6-minute message.

‘Without basis’

Reyes stressed he was in hiding “not to run away from justice but in order to avoid the persecution, ridicule and accusations that are being thrown at me without basis.”

Roger Lagasca, anchor of dzIP’s morning news program that aired Reyes’ statement, said the audio message was e-mailed to the radio station by the former governor.

Reyes has been indicted as the mastermind of the Jan. 24, 2011, killing of Ortega, a staunch environmentalist and a radio commentator of RMN (Radio Mindanao Network) Palawan. Ortega had been vocal in criticizing the Reyes administration.

Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo had warned he would order a nationwide manhunt for Reyes and his brother if they will not surrender within the week.

On Tuesday, Judge Angelo Arizala of the Palawan Regional Trial Court ordered the arrest of the Reyes brothers, who were charged with Ortega’s murder after a reinvestigation of the case by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in Manila.

P150,000 hit job

Ortega, a staunch critic of Joel Reyes and of incumbent Governor Abraham Kahlil Mitra, was gunned down inside a used clothes store while shopping. The alleged triggerman, Marlon Recamata, was captured immediately and later confessed that his group was hired for the hit job for P150,000.

Robredo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer the other day that he preferred that the Reyes brothers be taken in custody without resistance than be hunted down as fugitives.

“I will order a manhunt if they don’t,” Robredo said.

Failed stakeout

Police had thought that the former governor was in his house in  Dasmariñas Village in Makati City because he had been seen there, but called off their operation the other day after six hours without seeing him.

A police source in Puerto Princesa City earlier said Reyes’ whereabouts had been determined by the authorities.

A coaccused also ordered arrested by the judge is now in custody. On Tuesday night, lawyer Romeo Seratubias, former provincial administrator of Reyes, was arrested by agents of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).

Seratubias was the registered owner of the .45 cal. pistol used to kill Ortega.

Ex-bodyguard’s testimony

Reyes was indicted by the DOJ on the basis of the testimony of his former bodyguard, Rodolfo Edrad Jr., who had confessed to having organized the assassination of Ortega and claimed his group did it on Reyes’ instruction.

Edrad’s testimony was rejected by the first DOJ  panel but this was reversed by a new panel, which also accepted additional evidence from the prosecution, including records of text messages between Reyes and Edrad before and right after the Ortega murder.

Recamata, the supposed lone assailant, was arrested moments after the killing with the help of passing firefighters and bystanders. His accomplices fled.

Recamata later said his group was hired by Edrad for the hit job.

Ortega’s widow, Patria Gloria, claimed  only Reyes had the motive to order her husband killed. She said her husband had criticized Reyes in his daily radio program for the latter’s purported inability to stop the abuses and violations of environmental laws committed by mining companies in Palawan.

The widow said Reyes had also blamed her husband for the latter’s failed run for a seat in Congress.

    All those money that CJ Corona stole from the Philippine treasury could be used to put a bounty on this scum bag’s head.  Tap on Corona’s $ account and use $500,000.00 as a reward money on Reyes head, dead or alive.  I bet even his inner circle would turn him in.

    My personal opinion is until government becomes firm in handling such issues there will be more of scums like this individual who will treat justice in the country like he was in a circus.  I say government should issue a shoot to kill order for people like this along with Palparan who think they are above the law.  Government should not be shackled by what the catholic hierarchy or the bleeding heart liberals society of this country will say when dealing with criminals hellbent in defying the law.

Pag mahirap ka walang ganun, either arrestado ka agad o kaya patay ka sa “shootout”.

    This ex-governor has a house in Dasmariñas Village Makati? Calling on Atty.

Reyes has become famous now, esp. with the arrest warrant, but he is no rich guy, he got no business that annually makes millions for him.

    This is the new reality in Philippine politics set as a bad precedent by Sen. Honasan and Sen. Lacson. Given the connections, the long arm of the law is still short for these type of people with even longer arm of connections. Sinundan ni Palparan tapos eto namang ex-governor ng Palawan.

  • JK1000

    Under the law if  a person is not guilty he should bravely face his accuser, deny the accusation, and not go into hiding. The tendency of the innocent is to immediately clear his name in court. That is why the law presumes flight (going into hiding) as an indication of guilt. Reyes should not imitate the laughable reason given by one of the senators who went into hiding.He reasoned that it was to avoid persecution, ridicule and accusations that were being thrown at him without basis, and his going into hiding is not to run away from justice.  If he did not really commit any crime who would dare accuse him? A senator’s position wields so much power and influence, and to say he is being persecuted like a helpless sheep is truly laughable? Kalokohan ito. Ang maniwala sa kanya mga bobo laman.

    Murder is taking a precious life of a human being. No amount of argument can change the fact that the mastermind cannot escape the crime even if he did not pull the trigger. The mastermind has an equal accountability to the Creator of Life as the hired gun who mercilessly killed a person he had no particular motive to end one’s life.

    The hired gun confessed to the crime already and, perhaps, he has also asked forgiveness from God because his conscience bothers him. How true it is for masterminds and evil-doers to be in self-denial because the Devil conveniently lets them believe that they can escape from the crime.

    DILG Secretary should not waste time and wait till the accused surrenders. Robredo must order immediately a nationwide manhunt or else Joel Reyes will be able to escape through the backdoor or the usual exit that politician-fugitives pass through. Robredo should ask Sen. Ping Lacson where Joel Reyes is possibly hiding because the good (?) senator is an expert in it.

    As of late, there are two high profile fugitives from justice that need the attention of the national government, Gen. Palparan and ex Gov. of Palawan Joel Reyes.  The national government should prioritize the capture of these fugitives or else our criminal justice system will be ridiculed despite the efforts of the president to modernize our economy and our armed forces, including the PNP.

    People with money and power can get away with not getting arrested in our country.  Just look at Sen. Lacson, who evaded arrest for the Dacer killing by hiding.  So with ex-General Palparan who until now has not been arrested for the kidnap of 2 students.  I sense a high level of lawlessness in our country today, with a lot of blatant robberies and killings in  the news recently.  Although it may be ironic, P’Noy should consider declaring martial law to establish an authoritarian government to enforce his “daang matuwid”.  I think he is popular and trustworthy enough to get the support of the people should he do this.  Enough is enough, P’Noy should put his foot down to lead this country to greatness.

Victims are being victimized even more by the authorities. Perpetrators have all the rights/privileges especially if they have money. Some are even escorted out by immigration officers themselves to avoid arrest by other govt authorities. Gov’t authorities have more fun in the Philippines doing these things haha.

    In the U.S. there’s that so-called “bounty hunters” who track and apprehend fugitives for a fee. The batting average of these people are better that the regular police. I guess we should try it in the PHL.

    One of the main reasons why these influential fugitives can hardly be caught is because they have connections with the police, NBI and other law-enforcing authorities who protects them or at least give them tips whenever an operation against them is being conducted.

    The defiant stance of Reyes is an affront to law enforcement. His is a defiant challenge to the police, ro Robredo and to the PNoy government. Until now, Palparan, the berdugo of activists, has yet to be apprehended. Why? If Palparan has succeeded this far, Reyes has the temerity and gall to say “I will not surrender”. Catch me if you can! Like Palparan, this man must be  brought behind bars and languish there. We hope that PNoy will give this a priority. Reyes may have silenced Doc Gerry, but Doc Gerry and his advocacy  live…  

  • oracle888

    Apparently there is a trend of those powerful and influential government officials NOT to surrender when being served by warrant of arrest for  heinous crime they allegedly have committed.

    The failure of our system could be due to the followings:

    (1) Political or clan and tribal protection the suspect has enjoyed in resisting surrender.

    (2) Disfunctional  PNP organization that either half-heartedly in implementing the warrant of arrest or even doing nothing at all.

    (3) Failure of our judicial system to impose double or severe punishment on suspect who resist surrender

    (4) Ignorant mentality of the people in rewarding those against the government and the people by electing them to the government office.

    Base on above causes, the following could be our remedies:

    (1) Abolish political clan private army and punish those who assist the outlaws.

    (2) Strengthen the military and PNP organization, tightly coupled all departments under a centralized system.

    (3)  Imposed severe punishment to those outlaws and convict them by default if they did not appear in court.

    (4) Re-educate the people and introduce law to disqualify any criminal offender to run for government offices.

     

  • tompadlan

    Ang mga influential na tao mahirap talagang mahanap. To stop this bad precedent of hiding justice is to use out of the box idea.  The Intelligence group should form a secret unit, in close monitoring by senior government officials (including P-noy) and its only function is to capture grand daughter/son of these criminals hiding from justice so that they will come out from hiding. These is against the law but CIA, MOSSAD, SAS used this method and proved effective.

  • jayemdee_412

    When an influential government official is accused of a crime and not yet charged in court, he struts as if  he is the most innocent person on earth. But when a warrant of arrest is issued by a court, he hides like a rat and issues statements through media claiming he is persecuted by the government. This was started by an incumbent senator who later surfaced when warrant for his arrest was lifted by SC followed by a former general and the latest is this former governor. It’s sickening that these former government officials go into hiding and government authorities cannot find them.

    Mga kababayan,
    mahigit isang taon kong tiniis na hindi magsalita sa publiko at hinayaan
    kong sana ang katarungan na lang ang manaig.

    Ngunit sa panahong ito ay nais ko namang iparating sa ating mga kababayan ang aking hinaing at alinlangan.

    Noong nakaraang taon unang naglabas ng resolution ang Department of
    Justice – ang unang panel. At ang resolution ay NO PROBABLE CAUSE.
    Na-deny din po ang kanilang Motion for Reconsideration. Ngunit hindi po
    natapos iyon. Sapagkat patuloy ang kanilang pagbatikos at pagla-lobby sa
    matataas na kinauukulan. Kaya naman naglabas nung huli ang Kalihim ng
    Department of Justice ng isang administrative order upang gumawa ng
    pangalawang panel. Sa paggawa ng dalawang panel, mayroon lamang
    tinatawag na scope of responsibility ang panel na tumanggap at i-assess
    kung mayroon mang bagong ebidensya. Ngunit alam naman po natin na wala
    po namang sinumiting bagong mga ebidensya. Ngunit ang resulta po ng
    pangalawang panel ay mayroon na raw pong probable cause. At ito – ang
    kanilang information- ay i-finile kaagad sa Regional Trial Court sa
    Puerto Princesa. Nagsaya po ang ating mga katunggali sa pulitika dahil
    sa pagkakataong ito ay nasunod ang kanilang kagustuhan. Mayroon nga pong
    isang announcer na robot diyan sa DYEC na walang iba kundi banggitin
    araw-araw na poposasan daw kaming magkapatid at ilalagay sa city jail.
    Mayroon pang isang tuta na announcer sa RMN na ipinipilit na i-connect
    ako sa krimen. Daig pa po niya ang imbestigador, hukom at piskal na
    pinagsama. Pati ba naman po ang namumuno sa simbahan, na hindi man lang
    binigyan ng pagkakataon na ipagtanggol ang aking sarili at kaagad
    ipinako na ako sa krus. Sa ngitngit naman po ng isang German diyan sa
    Puerto Princesa ay nag-utos pang ipatanggal ang aking mga pangalan sa
    waiting shed. Nag-file pa ng libel case sa akin dahil nagsasabi ako ng
    totoo. Ang masasabi ko lang doon ay kahit ano ang kanyang ipabura, hindi
    niya kayang burahin ang pangalan ko sa puso ng ating mga mamamayan.
    May balita na kumakalat noong isang araw na mayroon pang nag-vigil sa
    Justice Hall na ang sabi nila ay mayroon daw balita na susunugin ang RTC
    para hindi makapag-isyu ng warrant of arrest. At baka raw pasabugin pa
    ang RTC. At ako rin naman daw ang may kinalaman diyan. At mayroon din
    pong balita na nagkagulo sa Sabang na nagkaroon ng pagsabog ng bomba
    diyan sa pier na ako rin daw ang may pakana. Eh, kulang na lang po na
    ibintang sa akin ang lahat ng mga krimen na nanggagaling o nagagawa
    diyan sa lungsod ng Puerto Princesa. Mga kababayan, mahigit
    pong dalawampung taon ako na nagsilbi sa inyo. Gayundin po ng aking
    kapatid na si Mayor Marjo sa Coron, ng aking ama, ng aking lolo. Hindi
    po ninyo nabalitaan na nag-alsa-boses o nagbuhat kami ng kamay kahit na
    kanino man sa tagal ng aming pagsi-serbisyo. Hindi po gaya ng isang
    pulitiko diyan sa lungsod na mayroon nang criminal mind, mayroon pang
    criminal record. Yung isa naman po natalo sa eleksyon, di natanggap ang
    pagkatalo, gusto magpa-recall kaagad. Mga kababayan, kung
    saka-sakali na mabalitang kami ay napaslang dahil kami ay lumaban o di
    kaya kami ay naaksidente, huwag po kayong maniniwala. At alam na po
    ninyo kung sino ang mayroong kagagawan nito. Nais ko pong
    manawagan kay Congressman Alvarez, kay Congressman Socrates, at gayundin
    kay Mayor Hagedorn – sa inyong mga kamay aking ipinagbibilin ang aking
    mga anak na inyo ring mga inaanak (iyon ay kung sagrado sa inyong tingin
    ang inyong sinumpaan sa harap ng ating Poong Maykapal nang kayo ay
    tumayo bilang kanilang mga ninong nung sila’y binyagan.
    Salamat po Governor Baham Mitra sa inyong pamumuno at pangunguna sa
    pag-alay ng misa para sa aming kaligtasan nang sa gayun ay matamo namin
    ang tunay na katarungan. Ngayon ay nadarama namin ang aming tunay na mga
    kaibigan, di gaya ng iba na kaibigan daw pero sa oras ng kagipitan
    nagkaroon na yata ng AMNESIA. Salamat din po sa mga kaibigan,
    mga kamag anak, at mga supporters lalong- lalo na po ang aking mga
    kababayan sa Coron na patuloy na nag-aambagan at nanalangin at
    tumutulong sa amin. Huwag po sana kayo mag-alala. Nandiyan po si Vice
    Governor Fems Reyes at ang aking mga anak na si Jackie, si Markie, at si
    Juami na handang ipagpatuloy ang aking sinimulan. Haharapin po
    natin sa takdang oras ang mga paratang at akusasyon na ito. Nandito

    takbuhan ang hustisya ngunit para maiwasan ang patuloy na pang-aapi,
    pang-aalipusta at pagbibintang nang walang basehan. Sa ateng
    mga gurang –gurang y Casimanua, mga Guenicanan ig mga Parientes. Indi

    STATEMENT OF GOV. JOEL T. REYES (pls SHARE)

    Mga kababayan, mahigit isang taon kong tiniis na hindi magsalita sa publiko at hinayaan kong sana ang katarungan na lang ang manaig.Ngunit sa panahong ito ay nais ko namang iparating sa ating mga kababayan ang aking hinaing at alinlangan.Noong nakaraang taon unang naglabas ng resolution ang Department of Justice – ang unang panel. At ang resolution ay NO PROBABLE CAUSE. Na-deny din po ang kanilang Motion for Reconsideration. Ngunit hindi po natapos iyon. Sapagkat patuloy ang kanilang pagbatikos at pagla-lobby sa matataas na kinauukulan. Kaya naman naglabas nung huli ang Kalihim ng Department of Justice ng isang administrative order upang gumawa ng pangalawang panel.Sa paggawa ng dalawang panel, mayroon lamang tinatawag na scope of responsibility ang panel na tumanggap at i-assess kung mayroon mang bagong ebidensya. Ngunit alam naman po natin na wala po namang sinumiting bagong mga ebidensya. Ngunit ang resulta po ng pangalawang panel ay mayroon na raw pong probable cause. At ito – ang kanilang information- ay i-finile kaagad sa Regional Trial Court sa Puerto Princesa. Nagsaya po ang ating mga katunggali sa pulitika dahil sa pagkakataong ito ay nasunod ang kanilang kagustuhan.

    Cynthia Palanca: With regards to the Rio Tuba Mining located in the Province of Palawan, for everyone’s information this mining company started in 1970. During that time Gov Baham Mitra was not even born yet. He was born in 1971 and Joel Reyes was just in high school then. Let not Gina Lopez and paid media documentary who just relies on hearsay from Hagedorn camp fool you. That was during the Marcos time and the Gov then was the late Gov Socrates who defeated Mayor Hagedorn in 2001 and shortly before he was proclaimed, his chartered plane crashed in the ocean after take off. At that time the helicopter that was supposed to be boarded by then winning Vice Gov Joel Reyes crashed killing Reyes’ mother who told him to just stay behind. It was bound for Coron. There were only 2 helicopters parked at the runway at that time; one was used by Reyes’ mother and the other was used to rescue her and that too crashed. So any of those two helicopters whichever Reyes choose to board was bound to crash. The Hagedorn’s residence is just at the end of the runway in Puerto Princesa City. There is no barrier if they want to sabotage an aircraft. The airport in Puerto Princesa is not secured by a fence. It is so easy to enter it. Off the runway are houses and at the end of it is the residence of the Hagedorns. Both Socrates and Reyes suffered loss of love one because they beat Mayor Hagedorn in the 2001 elections. When Hagedorn became unsuccessful, he turned to then winning Mayor Dennis Socrates and the winning Vice Mayor Dong Batul. He successfully unseated Socrates in 2002 via snap election even if he was not an original candidate. To this day he remained Mayor already passed yet another 9 yr limit (2002+9 ys=2011 last year) it’s 2012 already and we all know that Dong Batul was gunned down by riding in tandem. But Mayor Hagedorn anxious to collect reward of P900k from City Hall, blame it on SPO Golifardo who was in Manila at that time but he was jailed for 5 yrs just to quiet the case. That is why we should not have a repeat of that in the person of Joel Reyes. The past had shown that Mayor Hagedorn has a habit of blaming his crimes on others to get away with it again and again.

    Kung malakas ang ebidensya ng DOJ against this ex-governor, bakit hindi iutos sa PNP ang shoot-to-kill, ie wanted dead or alive, pag hindi sumuko kagad yan dahil hihikayatin ng family nya na sumuko. Drastic, but the only way! Pinaglalaruan ng ‘nakakaalam’ ng loopholes ang ating batas!
