MANILA, Philippines — A son of former Senator Jovito Salonga, not the lawmaker as reported on radio, was arrested Monday in his home in Pasig City for alleged estafa, police said.

Branch 265 of the Pasig City regional trial court issued the order against Steven Salonga and was served by the Eastern District Police in his home on Acacia Street, Valle Verde Subdivision, said police.

The case involves the sale of a condominium unit in Tagaytay by Salonga.

    Diyos ko po, isnt it the ex senator was known for clean govt ? Ang dumi nyo , sir. Pareho lang kayo sa mga Kamaders namin kickback muna mga budget namin at sa mga pockets nila.  Putan g  ina kayong mag nanakaw!

      relaks lang, wala pang detalye.

        In addition, maski lumabas man ang ilang detalye, kailangan mapatunayan pa kung talagang may kasalanan. Ang hatol ay nakukuha tapos mabistahan ang inihabla. Hindi ng mga mga bystanders at nakikisawsaw lamang sa kontrobersiya para sa kanilang pansariling kaligayahang mahirap malaman kung anong dahilan at para kaninong kapakanan. Hindi ako komporme sa mga Salonga, dahill natatandaan ko noong Si former lawmaker Jovito Salonga ay involve pa sa paghabol sa mga alleged ill-gotten wealth ng mga Marcos bilang isa sa mga kauna-unahang appointed official ng new goverment ni former Pres. Cory Aquino after the downfall of Ferdinand Marcos Sa lahat ng kanyang vaunted intelligence ay nawalan ng mga important documents and large sums of money and bonds in an attache case with handcuffs in New York City. No one one knew for sure if those documents were really lost or a classic case of losing something ala hulidap benefitting everyone involved except the truth and the Filipino people.

      Grabe ka naman! Nag mura ka kaagad at di mo pa alam ang totoong estorya. May deperensya yang ugali mo tsong! patingin ka sa psychiatrist.  At saka Civil case yan at hindi criminal. Kaya kailangan ay bond lang dyan!

    • manuel agoncillo

      sa palagay ko syndicated estafa eto…kaya criminal… kala lang nila malinis itong senator na ito… land grabber kaya ito …. tapos yung anak naman nya swindler… nagdedevelop ng lupa.. tapos ibebenta … yung titulo sasanla sa bangko… tapos magfifile ng bankrupt kuno kuno.. i know kasi im one of the victims..

  • alfred sanchez

     patay na yan dba?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XIJY2MSBTT7VT256PTE7VDEFPM JOJIE

    Arrest warrant on a sale of property? Ano ban yan? Civil case yan at di criminal. Kailangan lang bond dyan. Gusto lang mauna ng reporter na maka post ng breaking news. Kunin nyo muna ang detalye para ma present nyo ng maayos ang sides ng estorya.

      Para me masabi lang tong report na to e kahit ubod ng labo e ipopost. Parang status update lang to sa FB e o kaya sa twitter.

    • drew_casta

    If you think Sen. Salonga is clean, you’re wrong.  Most of Cory’s officials were corrupt especially her own brother Peping.

    • yesyesyo

      I  trust Sen. Salonga and Cory. I have no trust in you Martin.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RJCBRIF74PNFQRVYN7X65CLKBE I_ReMi

    wow papasa na palang article ito? yung mga nagcocomment dito may conclusion na kagad wala pa ngang detalye… tsk tsk..

  • sopingac

    Only idiots would make a judgement on Sen. Salonga at this point.

  • lucidlynx

    Ano bang klaseng journalism ito? Inquirer – if you don’t have the details yet, don’t report it yet. Akala ninyo breaking news na agad pero wala namang detalye.

    You’ve just maligned the name of a respected senator who fought the dictatorship. Mga ungas!

  • $18209031

    Nag aantay kami lalabas si Lea Salonga and his crying Korean husband to explain it all. If she sings, the better.  Dirty scums abound in their bloodline , kakahiya itong anak !

      ano ba talaga, her, his, it? :P

  • d q

    Na-kuryente na naman ang PDI ah!

    Dati mali rin yung report nila na nahuli ng over-speeding si Richard Gutierez sa SLEX, ibang tao naman pala.

    Wala bang editor ang breaking news nila?

  • manuel agoncillo

  • otitss

    A son of former senator Salonga, not the former lawmaker. Is there any former senator Salonga other than Jovito Salonga.?

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/XY4AW6ZJBAPIJ33L7KX6M3IOQI c

      you didn’t quote the whole line, otitss. it said “…not the former lawmaker as reported on radio.”

      • otitss

  • manuel agoncillo

    BAKA KASI SYNDICATED ESTAFA ITO…. yung BRENTWOOD PARKHOMES NGA.. HALOS LAHAT NG TITULO SINANGLA NG KUMAG NA ITO… KASABWAT YUNG PINSAN NYANG SI ELI SALONGA… HOY TITULO NAMIN BIGAY NYO NA…..

    • SignTheWaiverNow

      I totally agree with you… A lot of morons here thinks that the Salongas are so holy like PENOY!

      If no one knows, his son are drug users/pushers and one even stab one of my friend at the back during a fight in a disco.

      You Yellow morons don’t know anything and yet you think that these people are so fuking Holy!

      MORONS!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KP5ZIGJKXOPFMUBPOSUWKIUMH4 Critique At large

    What the fudge is this news?!!! The banner clearly says, Arrest order out vs former Sen. Salonga.

    Inquirer continues, “An arrest warrant was issued against former Senator Jovito Salonga, a radio report said Monday.”

    Inquirer totally and intentionally tried to fool the readers with this foolishness! This paper is practicing backward and backyard journalism. Read their news reporting on Tulfo. Their (cub) reporter related the incident as if he’s in the actual scene. Later, they recognized their partiality and released, “according to Tulfo” narration plus a separate report, “according to Claudine and Raymart”.

    I miss the good old Inquirer so much!

    • indiots

      at least nakakuha ng katapat si tulfo he he he. style nila parang untouchables…

      kung s’ya kaya ang nawalan ng bagahi? baka buong page ang banat sa airliner na yan kung di magka-cash-sundo.

      nalalason na kasi ang PDI ni CDQ – Conrado De aQuino

    SOUNDS FAMILIAR!!!!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

    It was the elder Salonga who was supposed to be arrested but because of his age and health, the son took his place. 

  • pepengkabayo

    Former Sen. Jovito Salonga’s son arrested–police…..

    Buti naman at former son ni Sen.Salonga ang naaresto.
    Kala ko tunay na anak, former lang pala.
    Kala ko pa naman si Sen.Salonga ay talagang malinis, may anomalya din pala.
    The irony of it is…kung kailan matanda na saka pa nakasuhan.
    Alam naman ninyo, kung ano ang bago, yon ang nakatatak sa utak ng tao.

  • Yxon

    ang gulo ng news nyo…may isa kayong item iba rin ang laman…halatang hindi nakuha ng reporter nyo ang totoong pangyayari

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CTVYVTFG5A7L54C4Q6WYG3PU6U Alex

    Since when can a son be arrested if the father is too ill to be arrested?  This is bogus journalism! In your other article it said the son Steve volunteered to go and explain to the judge the circumstances.  That article is far more sensible than this article of Elona.   

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/V6JIJ3SRPJ6MR7K7PPMPYNIO6M Andy

    Nag assume na naman ang mga reporter ng Philippine Daily Inquirer, first you said it was the senator now you are telling us the son is arrested…cmon! 

  • JK1000

    Akala ko si Senator Jovito Salonga ? Ngayon binago na naman ninyo ! Palpak kayo…New kind of journalism…based on gossip.
