    May nainiwala pa ba sa mga kulang sa pansin na ito?
    Kulang lang sa pag-aaruga ng magulang yan kaya ayan, sa iba na lang binabawi ang atensyon.

    Sa natuklasang laki ng $ account ni Corona, nagalit siguro si Atty, Jimeno at Roy dahil hindi
    PRO BONO (done for the public good without compensation) kundi PuRO aBONO ang kanilang serbisyo ginagawa… Hahaha all along kala nila Hari nga ng mga Padrino itong CJ at di kayang tibagin ninuman. Kundi ba naman mga buang, hindi na panahon ni GMA ngayon!!!
    Sigaw nung dalawa… bayaran nyo kami or else magreresign kami!!!
    Kaya pala Pinilit ni Roy na tumistigo si Omb Morales para itulak sa bangin ang kaso ni CJ> What’s next?… siguro magre-request uli itong atty. Roy na ipa subpoena si Sis. FLORY BASA !!! Hahahahaha….

  • JasminCubacub

    HARRY ROQUE IS A SHAMELESS RASCAL.. He announced to the media last month that he and his wifeand children were treated as PARIAH by the caucasians in the US during their vacation..  kasi alam ng mga kano tungkol sa masama’ng ugali ng mga Ruque kaya na’ostracise sila don.

  • simondj

    isa pa ito,,, gusto nito authenticated at permado ng AMLAC iyong presentation ni MORALES.
    sabagay para hindi na mahirapan ang sandigan bayan pwede na rin.

  • indiosbravos2002

    After 5 months of being pro bono kuno, the two has realized that Corona has been lying all along about his wealth. The fight has gone from defending an honorable cause to defending a corrupt kups of a rascal holding the CJ position.
