Arroyo wants to stop P366-M PCSO case


Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, NBN-ZTE Deal

Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Tuesday sought a halt to all court proceedings and her possible arrest in connection with her plunder case stemming from the alleged misuse of P366 million in Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) funds.

In an urgent motion, Arroyo’s lawyers said she would file a motion for reconsideration on the Office of the Ombudsman’s resolution ordering that she and nine others be charged with plunder, a nonbailable offense.

This is the first plunder case against Arroyo, although she is already detained for another nonbailable case, electoral sabotage, pending in the Pasay City Regional Trial Court.

Arroyo is also facing graft cases in the Sandiganbayan for her approval of the allegedly overpriced National Broadband Network deal with China’s ZTE Corp. The deal has been scrapped.

Maria Rosario del Rosario and Christian Diaz of the Diaz, Del Rosario and Associates law firm also asked that the Office of the Ombudsman be directed to furnish Arroyo with a copy of its ruling, as she had yet to receive one.

The Office of the Ombudsman claimed that from January 2008 to June 2010, the accused diverted funds from the PCSO’s operating budget to the confidential or intelligence fund, which could be withdrawn or accessed any time and with few restrictions.

The accused then allegedly converted, misused and illegally transferred the funds for their own use “in the guise of fictitious expenditures,” it said.

In the motion, the lawyers said Arroyo, now a Pampanga lawmaker, would exhaust all remedies, especially the filing of a motion for reconsideration in the Office of the Ombudsman.

They said a motion for reconsideration was an integral part of any preliminary investigation of a case. If an accused is deprived of the chance to file such a motion, the preliminary investigation is deemed incomplete.

“It is a well-settled rule that a person under preliminary investigation by the Ombudsman is entitled to file a motion for reconsideration of the adverse resolution. This right is provided for in the very Rules of Procedure of the Office of the Ombudsman,” the lawyers said.

Preliminary probe

They added that the right to a preliminary investigation was a “component part of due process in criminal justice” and that it should be done before any charge is brought to court. The lawyers asked the court to suspend any further  action on the plunder charge.

But even without the motion, the Sandiganbayan cannot as yet issue any ruling or warrant in connection with the case until it has been raffled to a division. The antigraft court is scheduled to raffle off the case on Friday.

Arroyo’s coaccused in the plunder case are former PCSO Chairman Sergio Valencia; former General Manager Rosario Uriarte; ex-board members Manuel Morato, Jose Taruc V, Raymundo Roquero, Ma. Fatima Valdes; and ex-budget and accounts manager Benigno Aguas.

Indicted as well were former Commission on Audit Chairman Reynaldo Villar and Nilda Plaras, erstwhile intelligence/confidential fund audit unit head.

Morato’s motion

Like Arroyo, Morato sought the suspension of proceedings in his plunder case Tuesday.

In a motion filed through his lawyers, Morato said he had yet to receive a copy of the Ombudsman resolution indicting him for plunder.

Morato’s motion said he was entitled to file a motion for reconsideration, with the court’s permission, on the adverse ruling. To deny him of this chance would violate his right to due process.

The motion was signed by Morato’s lawyer Dante Diaz.

Not Sona-related

The plunder case was filed a week before the third State of the Nation Address (Sona) of President Benigno Aquino, a constant critic of Arroyo.

Arroyo’s lawyer Anacleto Diaz on Monday said that the filing of the plunder case was timed for Sona in which Mr. Aquino would demonize Arroyo.

Malacañang said there was no politics behind the back-to-back filing of separate plunder cases against Arroyo and one of her most trusted appointees, former Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. chairman Efraim Genuino.

In a Palace briefing, presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said the filing of the charges was “merely incidental (and) has no relation whatsoever to the Sona on July 23.

Filed  ‘long ago’

Lacierda recalled that the case against the former President was filed “long ago” in the Office of the Ombudsman.

“And we’d like to remind you that the executive branch has no control or influence over the Office of the Ombudsman and, time and again, there were certain instances or cases where the Ombudsman dismissed a case against the former President or lowered the crime charge,” Lacierda said.

The President’s spokesperson noted that graft investigators had found probable cause to warrant the filing of the charges.

In a statement, Deputy Customs Commissioner Danilo Lim said the plunder case would finally land Arroyo in jail.

“The plunder case will deliver Arroyo from her hospital detention to a regular prison. Justice will be served,” said Lim, one of the complainants in the case. With a report from Philip C. Tubeza

    CJ Corona (de muerte) unfortunately is not in a position anymore to distort the interpretation of the relevant laws to favor her.. She, thru her lawyers, can file all the motions and pleadings as fast as they can churn them out; but all of them may well be denied.. At least her lawyers can earn a lot..

    • arthur1401

      True. The money that GMA had stolen from the people will all go to those greedy and conscience-less lawyers like topacio whose idol is hitler. 
      Pity the Filipinos. this country has a lot of lawyers. BS!!!

  • filipinaskoh

    I am just wondering how much money these Arroyos have, they can get the most expensive lawyers in the country. I am sure they are not ‘pro bono’.

    She now have a plunder case, an electoral sabotage and a graft charge, what else is to be added so that her lawyers could not find any ” palusot sa batas” to dismiss or lessen the penalty. 

    Calling Doctors of GMA, you can now “create” a new kind of illness for her to avoid being jailed or  to leave the country ASAP.

     I just hope the next president is not an ally of GMA or else she will be receiving a grand pardon.

    Nasaan na ang mga alipores ni Gloring na palagiang sinasabing wala namang kaso, puro satsat lang.  3 charges na ito, at malamang madagdagan pa. Maghintay pa kayo at baka sakali si Gloring ay makarating sa “Guinness book of world records” o di kaya naman sa “Ripley’s believe it or not”  at baka makasali din sa “IBILIB: wonder of Horus”

      Dapat nga si Atty. Renato C. Corona ang mag-abogado sa kanya para man lang masuklian ang pabor na binigay ni Madam Gloria sa kanya.

      O baka naman si Corona ang nasa likod nitong mga abogadong ito kasi very similar yung approach dun sa ginawa niya sa Impeachment niya.

  • regd

    That’s right, she has all the right to exhaust all remedies available to her and her lawyers made sure of that.I don’t mind as long as we also do not exhaust all remedies available to keep updating her of her anomalies and wrongdoings. If she survives and will not be convicted, I will complain to God. If God does nothing, it’s the end.

  • Hey_Dudes

    All the more reason an elected president of a country in general and the Philippines in particular – should not stay on longer than the 6 years mandated by the constitution.  This klepto ailing woman stayed for 9 long years giving her the luxury of grabbing every opportunity to steal along with her family, cronies and kissamygloass followers.  Let this be a lesson for others but then – do we Filipinos really ever learn a lesson?

  • 12JEM

    Sana mailipat na sa ibang kulungan iyang si GMA…..

  • Love God

    She was so powerful and untouchable few months ago… Never knowing the fact that one day the power will be gone and will be held accountable to all atrocities and other illegal acts…

    Where are those die hard congressmen who killed all the impeachment complaints?

    Now it is time for some lawyers to make money defending a handicapped, powerless former president..

    It is a lesson to all greedy politicians: you can amass all the wealth by stealing the public money but you cannot buy peace with that in return. 

    Proverbs 28:6 : it is better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich. Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways.

    I still remember Mike, Mikey and GMA’s partners-in-crime shouting arrogantly and in full view of the entire nation-“OK-SUE ME IN COURT”.
    Well, they got it now. Unfortunately for them, those GMA’s lackeys in courts like, Merci and corona are now toothless and will be of no help to her. 
    As usual, GMA is faking again and asking for “awa”, even asking her friends in CBCP to pray for her. They can pray all day-24/7 forever, but we know that her God is also our God and He knows whom to bless for He is the True Justice.
    Just look at what happened to Corona, bishops blessed him before the impeachment, his friends in SC, judiciary, in IBP, prayed for him and offered masses but still, Corona was found guilty.  
    As bloggers in this forum said, GMA could land in Guiness world of record in terms of so many crimes to face in her lifetime, and rightly so.
    Just few days after taking over from Erap, her DOJ secretary Nani Perez, was immediately involved in bribery. It was a portent of things
    to come as GMA was involved in so many scandals week after weeks after weeks.
    Now she can no longer say-“I am Sorry, it was lapse of Judgement”.

    It has been nine long years of GMAs stealing from the country making a very few billionnaires
    and making milllions of filipinos hungry,unemployed,and denied of their rights
    to live decent lives. Now, we have to demand the billlions back and put
    this woman in jail. Filipinos, arent you furious, dont you just detest
    this woman. Surely, she is the modern day Hitler who put
    lives of millions of filipinos in misery. Its payback time. She deserves
    Torture and firing squad.

    • el_latigo

      A firing squad is a very easy way of punishing GMA. Once she becomes a stiff, there will be no more problems for her. Her humongous problems that is the many criminal and administrative cases brought upon her person only by  herself (and don’t forget her corrupt insatiable husband too) will all be automatically dismissed. That’s an easy way out to avoid  the feel of the cold bars of our infamous congested, stinking, bed-bug-infested slammers where she should be put together with ordinary criminals, not in an airconditioned cell for her alone pls. Why should poor Juan dela Cruz, already made more impoverished by her world-class corrupt ways  while she was in power,  shoulder the burden for such an expensive undeserved amenity affordable only to the rich?  Letting her live a hundred years rotting in one of  these jails is more apt, don’t you think?

    what’s happening now should be welcome by the people who values a clean and honest government, and should serve as stern warning to the remaining crooks in the government. 

  • Opel

    Filipinos sadly are known for being overly forgiving and having a short memory of past leaders’ abuses and shinanigans, until we start bringing corrupt individuals to jail, the raid on government coffers will continue. I hope this will be a start when justice and not political and financial considerations will be the determining factor in corruption cases, it may be a far fetched wish in our existing justice system but i still wish na may mabukolan at makulong.

    The Pandalk is now facing the charges and the ombudsman Madam Carpio is doing her job well. She is unlike the DoJ Secretary De Lima who is always facing the media but has not won any case for the government. De Lima is having a good time on everything she does as lapdog from the lime of GMA to Noy. She is using his media exposure to have a chance to be CJ or be a senator. Both positions could make her outlived the term of Noy. Si Lacierda naman is always lying that the back to back cases of GMA is not related to SONA. He is lying, the President is always consulted when major decision is made by his cabinet secretaries. He knows that cases will be filed against the former president, its his marching order. As in the impeachment trial of CJ, his spokesmen initially said that he did not order the lower house to file an impeachment resolution against Corona but Speaker Belmonte revealed that  Pnoy ask him to have Corona impeached. Halata na Lacierda, hope you resigned if the president will include in his SONA th filing of charges on GMA. Eh ano kung inutos ni Pnoy ang mga filing and fast tracking of charges. He need to file big points on popularity rating right. Noy is also a showbiz fellow. All politician does it.

       ‘Wawa naman itong si wawa123, ano naman ang masama kung isama ni PNoy ang pag-file ng mga kaso against the previous corrupt regime sa kanyang SONA?  Malaking accomplishments ‘yan utoy! Baka akala mo kung gaano kahirap maghanap ng mga ebidensya at pag may nakita man sila ganuon din kahirap mag-file ng kaso laban sa mga iyan. Sigurado, ang mga pinakamatinik na mga abugago ng bansa ang kanilang ire-recruit para matakasan lahat mga kaso nila. De Lima is doing her job well,  nakukuha niyang ifile ang mga kaso base sa mga ebidensyang nakakalap ng DOJ. Di ka naman basta pwedeng mag-file ng kaso for the sake of filing a case ‘utoy. Ang importante ikalaboso lahat ang mga corrupt, kahit na maubos ang nalalabing taon sa termino ni PNoy. Kaya nga nanalo siya ng eleksyon ng gabundok dahil sa kanyang capmpaign promise na ipapakulong lahat ang mga malalaking maadarambong sa naghihirap na bansang ito.  

      • wawa2172

        I am comparing Ombuds Carpio to DOJ De Lima. The ombudsman is doing her job well without so much funfare from the media. She is more focus on her job than de Lima na puro dada lang sa media. De Lima has to win a case in favor of the government yet.

      • el_latigo

         Because, I said this before, court cases in the Phils. take ages before they are resolved. Usad pagong ang mga kaso dito kaya nga nauso ang kasabihang: “Justice delayed is justice denied” dahil sa kalakaran ng hustisya dito. Subukan mong mag-file ng kahit simpleng kaso lang at makikita mo… at maiiyak ka sa kunsumisyon sa usad pagong na hustisya dito sa Pinas.

    TUMAYO ka sa harap ng 6 by 6.  Tapos, pumwesto ka na nakatukod ang mga braso’t kamay mo sa bumper ng truck na parang gusto mong pigilan ang sasakyan na uma-andar na nakakambiyo na sa primera sa pag-usad.  GANYAN ang gustong mangyari ni Pandque sa pagpigil sa Ombudsman.  Pwede siguro kay Merci who had been very MERCiful to the hand that was feeding her, but not with MORALES who has a (Bernardo) Carpio in her name.
    At pagpalagay na natin na mawalang sala si pandaque sa pamamagitan ng pag-mamane-obra at paggapang sa mga gagapangin at nagpapagapang (PIN), paano nya PIPIGILAN ang pison ng bayan sa pag-iisip at paghusga sa kanya at lahat ng ka-bagang niya na MMM ng bayan?  IMPOSIBLE!  IMPOSIBLENG-IMPOSIBLE!!!  Para na ding sinabi mo na wala ng mabibiling belekoy sa Ongpin.

    ·         CCT – Continuing Corruption and Thievery. It’s also a CLASSIC CORRUPTION TECHNIQUE. The poor are used as vehicle for the nth time, the program is reached through a trade-off with members of the Congress, pork barrels are ensured by Malacanang, the implementing rules and regulations are flawed to easily hide the corruption, the taxpayers get all the trouble shouldering the spending and the failure of the program will be answered by the staged survey result of low hunger rate.
    Think about how many modern fishing boats, mini-hydro electric dams, farm machines, rehabilitated railway and its electronic safety system, micro-fish processing industries, rice businesses and workers and economic returns of a good railway system that can accommodate passengers and cargoes, can a P45 Billion fund. These are sure job creation and livelihood insurance.
    This administration is os corrupt that no less than Arroyo, the BRAIN of this jobbery treat now passionately continued by Nhoynoy, was shocked by the very huge budget (P21 Billion, last year) it is giving to the CLASSIC CORRUPTION TECHNIQUE (CCT). God, save the Philippines!

    This is what Pnoy says, harvest time after the Orchestra maestro Corona was impeached. The Little Lady has no way to run after her TRO making machine was jettisoned by 20 senators last month. The millions of jobless families due to her corruption will see both justice served and recovery of billions looted by her and her cohorts. May we recover the loot also from El Tabako and El Bigote. These two may cry unfair if they are not included in this ubiquitous plunder cases among former presidents and their bootlickers in the cabinet.

    Let the
    Ombudsman set a good  precedence in this

    That’s one
    way to move forward and warn all corrupt government officials.

    Kudos to
    Ombudsman Conchita. Let us protect her, it’s DILG/Police task to protect the
    ombudsman. The Office of the Ombudsman and its slum vicinity should be properly
    secured/monitored and must be beamed with CCTV 24/7 to protect the personnel and the
    documents. Beware that, a brother of one of the accused is a very notorious
    person and some of the remnants of former administration still working at the Office of the Ombudsman.

    BTW, the accused have the rights to file a motion for considerations and to hire their best lawyers…. a ” brilliant?” former Philippine Chief Justice EXPERT in concealing corruptions is now available as their option.

    Halata,Planado lahat ng kaso laban kay CGMA ay Panggigipit at puro Hearsay! Ebidensya? Wala! Hanggang ngayon yung mga tagatahol at sipsip kay Pnoy wala pang maipakitang ebidensya sa Election Sabotage at ibat-ibang Plunder na ikinaso laban kay Gloria,alam ni Pnoy at mga mga kaalyado niya puro basura mga kaso nila laban kay Gloria,pamilya nito at kaayado ng dating administrasyon. Para sa SONA ni Pnoy babanatan na naman si Gloria at lahat ng kaalyado niya na kinasuhan katulad ni SC Chief Justice Corona.Pnoy ang gawin mong SONA ay ang pagiging “Duwag” mo sa issue ng Panatag Shoal at Spratly Islands ( Puro diplomatic protest) gawin mo ipabomba mo kahit na granada lang ipahagis mo sa mga barko at bangka na nandiyan sa loob ng territorial sea natin wag yang puro daldal gusto ng tao aksyon! Palapit ng palapit ang China sa teritoryo natin nasa Palawan na baka susunod nasa Basilan o Zamboanga na yan ,ang sasagupa sa kanila mga Abbu Sayyaf at MILF, nasan ang AFP? tameme! ano ginagawa niyong paghahanda sa napipintong digmaan ng China at Pinas? Kayong mga Speech writers at spokesperson apyuan niyo si Pnoy tungkol sa SONA kasi magiging katawa-tawa lang siya,di kailanga ang yabang,paghihiganti ,banat,paninira kay Gloria kasi lalo lamang dumarami ang simpatya kay Gloria yan humihingi na siya ng dasal sa mga obispo bakit? kasi alam ni Gloria ang mga kinakaso sa kanya ni Pnoy puro kasinungalingan at gawa-gawa lang! Puro walanghiya ang mga namumuno sa DOJ,OMBUDSMAN, COMELEC,COA at AMLAC,mga banko etc. na nagamit at nagsabwatan para kasuhan, gipitin sina Gloria at Corona.Nakisawsaw pa dito si Danilo Lim na isang kawatan,balita namin multi milyonaryo na P.I… na to! Pnoy kung di mo kayang mamahala, sa SONA mo sabihin mo “Di ko na kaya ako’y magreresign na!” sigurado papalakpakan ka ng taong bayan.

    • wakats

      Hehe latigo, gusto mo mag resign si PNoy para ibalik ang amo mong si gloria. Ano ka, para kang nakatisod ng blue diamond nohh!

      The electoral sabotage case is still going on and the trial court judge is still in the process of determining the guilt or innocence of your amo. Please wait.

      The plunder case has been filed a long time ago and it’s only now that the venerable Ombudsman has finally determined that there is probable cause to warrant the filing of the case to the sandiganbayan.

      Ang malas ninyo nawala na si merceditas sa ombudsman at si corona sa supreme court. The playing field is now leveled and transparent and we’ll see the brilliance of your lawyers to prevent gma from being convicted of the 2 cases now under litigation in the Pasay trial court and the sandiganbayan.

      For the meantime, we’ll protest in mendiola for gma to be remanded to the city jail where she rightly belongs. Gusto ka sumama? isama mo rin sina fulpol(aka tiglao) at marlon…

  • wakats

    gma’s urgent motion is a delaying tactic to prevent issuance by the sandiganbayan of a warrant of arrest for the non-bailable offense of plunder. if her motion is granted, her lawyers will exhaust all legal maneuvers to delay the filing of said case to sandiganbayan.

    Ombudsman Conchita Morales is knowledgeable enough to file the case to the sandiganbayan after preliminary investigations to determine whether there is probable cause to warrant said filing of plunder case to the sandiganbayan.

    In the meantime, gma should now be remanded to the city jail and not in the comfort of a hospital where all expenses are borne by the government.

    The plunder case is already filed and let the wheel of justice roll as provided by law.

    • Malik62

       How can it be a delaying tactic when the Ombudsman did not really observe due process?

      Remember..Noynoy took on winning the Presidency out of duty to the Pilipinos ONLY,as did his Mother.

  • MonMayuga

    The time of reckoning has come. 

  • billy gunner

    There are two kinds of bloggers in this forum: one
    who likes the president and the other one who dislikes him. Why would someone
    like the president? Perhaps, due to his anti-corruption drive—sure why not? After
    all it’s for the country’s sake. But as hurting is it may seem, a common person
    who may like the president does not have to go through all these defensive
    antics employed by obviously paid hacks—because in doing so (defending an
    errant president), it is no longer a HEALTHY exercise of freedom but rather an
    obsession (maybe over the amount money being paid or over the person himself—bothways
    always dangerous). Just imagine how stupid the president can be by not doing
    anything with the recent incursions of the Chinese 60miles off palawan, and he
    would add that no protest is necessary based on a mere assumption of human
    error! What the h! That’s a cause for alarm and I wonder why people here with
    tunay na malasakit kuno are still defending him despite such an utter noynoying!
    On the other hand, you can’t blame people who dislike the president here
    because, in the first place, he is a public figure. It doesn’t take a genius to
    think that a public figure would be attacked with all kinds of maligning  words from all sides because that’s the way things
    are in a democratic government—more so if the blunders come left and right,
    front and back!


      Billy…we are not defending an”errant” president..we are defending and encouraging the first President in perhaps 50+ years to actually try to begin the ALMOST impossible task of cleaning out the corrupt,from the top down..a task which will not be completed in his Presidency,or perhaps the next 5-10 presidencies!(and ONLY if those presidencies continue the task of clensing!).Let us throw down our”oral swords”,get behind his philosophy 100%,and work hard each day to show by example that truthfulness and honesty in ALL dealings in our society is the ONLY way.

      • jed

        economy from bad to worse? any statistics to back this up?  You may have noticed that our ratings from all S&P, Fitch and Moody’s have upgraded us to just one notch below investment grade.

      • billy gunner

         of course you are rating from businessmen’s viewpoint. try for once to be sensitive with the ordinary people’s lives and you’ll see my point. typical example is rising cost of basic commodities. maybe you are not the one buying your own food and merely rely on the president’s crumbs that fall down from the presidential table. Sure the peso is getting stronger against the dollar, but in the real sense of the word, your pseudo-statistical BS about the economy is not felt among common tao. It’s not eveneconmics anymore–it’s oppression! Your S&P and Fitch and Moodys are mere tools for a “come-on” to foreign investors so they can share with the monopoly of the economy with the oligarchs!

ARE YOU KIDDING??? and you want a more specific argument? sure, sure why not! just go to any supermarket. compare the prices of commodities 6 months ago with the present. where is the logic that the economy is good because the peso is getting stronger than the dollar when prices are still skyrocketing? di ba it should have been the other way around? ever thought of that, or you just won’t accept it as it is because your back is covered by the money flowing from the palace? lol

         If BS Aquino x3 is sincere in his campaign to clean-up the country of corruption he should start in his own backyard.  How come his so called anti-crruption campaign is so ridden with double-standard witch hunting?

  • Atlason

    Very obviously, this latest “plunder” charge against GMA is being used to prop up PNoy’s SONA, he is again going to employ the demonizing tactics that he applied during the election. How shallow, for it’s being done simply because PNoy has nothing substantial to show for his 2 years in office as president, that will alleviate the sad flight of the Filipino masses, a big majority of which is still impoverished under PNoy’s administration. He should stop “noynoying” around and do the serious job on hand, as leader of almost 100 million populace.

  • Atlason

    As for people thinking PNoy is cleaning or successful in his “anti-corruption” campaign, think twice. One does not have to look so far, the KKK surrounding PNoy, they’ve amassed a huge war chest, so much for the hypocritical “anti-corruption” campaign. That’s the reason why PNoy balked at fulfilling his 2010 campaign promise of open-bank-account, his & his KKK’s many million stashed away will be revealed, so PNoy lied, no opening of his bank account or those of his cabinet. Is this the profile of one who is “fighting” corruption?

    Wala ng aasahan pa sa Komunistang gobyernong ito.  Walang ginagalang na batas ito.  Dati ang Kangaro Court nasa bastketball court lang sa barrio ngayon nasa senado na at mga hukuman. Pag si Dilima ang naging CJ ang SC maging Kangaro court na din.

    SONA props ang filing ng plunder  case against kay arroyo ano p nga b kanino p magmamana ang abnoy kundi sa magimmick nyang kapatid n showbiz std queen. kunwari he’s working on editing and revising his speech. weh may taalent kang ganon, budoy? eh pagpeplaystation lng alam mo

  • Malik62

    This case was hastily filed again just to make it on time for the SONA, as such it will be a weak case and will be dismissed again.  Then BS Aquino x3 will look for someone to blame again.

    • OFW28

      ang galing mo namang manghula, tama kaya hula mo buduy!!!

  • Anto

    oportunista nga c abnoy at pamilya nya. biruin mo habol daw ng senador un c bam aquino? wah! Hopeless n tlaga ang bansa natin

  • Anto

    Malapit ng maubusan ng palusot c abnoy. Cguro nman sapat na panahon
    binigay kay budoy para mag-adjust sya sa pagiging presidente. ANo n nga
    ba nagawa nya para maibaba ang presyo ng mga bilihin, kuryente, fuel at
    kung ano2 p? Baka nman gusto nyang isama sa accomplishment nya sa sona
    kung ilan babae ang nalink sa kanya? Masyado kasi showbiz c budoy mana
    sa kapatid nyan lukring, akala nya nasa teleserye sya kaya walang
    inatupag kundi pagdiskitahan c gma. Magtrabaho k budoy!

  • Concerned Pinoy

    Pres. Aquino should stop using former Pres.Gloria
    Macapagal-Arroyo as a diversionary tactic to cover up his lapses and

  • Concerned Pinoy

    Sa dami ng nagawa ni dating pangulong Gloria
    Macapagal-Arroyo, kaya sobrang insecure ang pangulo natin ngayon

  • iamcool

    it is a clear black propaganda to malign the achievements of the previous administration and highlight abnoy’s minimal performance in handling the country. just look at the numbers and figures, his rating is slipping as well as the economy…truth shall prevail…the Filipinos are getting wiser that they can’t be fooled by this trick

    • F**kinMO

      Philippines can’t go anywhere unless the problem at hand shall be taken care of like corruption and thus person shall be held accountable, If some other people cannot understand that then they should just shut the f**k up.   

    • gerp

      telling lies, and lies…all the time…will become the truth to the listener…unfortunately…telling lies for nine long years…is now the truth to the people who used to lived listening to GMA lies…just like this one. 

  • iamcool

    Wala na talagang pag-asa ang Pinas imbes na ipagpatuloy ang mga magagandang proyekto ni PGMA, puro nalang paninira ang inaatupag. Napabayaan na tuloy ang mga tunay na problema ng bayan. Gumising ka PNoy at oras ng magtrabaho para sa ikauunlad ng bayan.

    • gerp

      mabuti na lang di natuloy yung “ghost project” hehehe

  • ondong

    magdadalawang taon na si pnoy,pero ano ba ang maipagmamalaki nyang nagawa?kung lingun cya ng lingun sa mga nakaraan, hinding hindi tayo makakarating sa kaunlaran kahit matuwid na landas pa yan. sana pakinggan naman tayo kasi tayo ang boss nya dba?

  • BayangApi

    Ang mga napatunayang magnanakaw ay dapat parusahan.  Si Corona, si Gloria, kung sino pa man, ikulong lahat iyan, pati na ang mga tumulong sa kanila, kamag-anak o hindi.  Kung may katibayan kayong wala silang ginawang masama, tumestigo kayo.

  • $8705409

    Naniguro lang ang government. Sakali makalabas siya sa unang kaso ay kulong pa rin siya sa pangalawa. Pogi points eto ni Pnoy sa SONA. Sina Corona at Arroyo ang paborito putahe.  

  • Zenaida Francisco

    dagdagan ng tao ang SANDIGAN BAYAN, OMBUDS OFFICE para naman mapadali ang pagtalakay sa mga kaso.magpagawa na rin ng magandang kulungan yun kumpleto,mayAC at tv,para hindi nakakahiya sa uukopa nito.

    may nanghingi ng tulong sa malakanyang ng panahon ni arroyo tyong. tyong tuwang tuwa yong nanghingi ng tulong tyong, maiipagamot na n’yang ang maysakit na anak sa cheking 40 mil.
    ng i-encash na nya sa specified bank ang penirmahang tseke, 4 mil lang ang ibinigay. para kanino yong 36 mil?

    Its like the same song all over again. Is this Administration going to keep churning out accusations and cases without any verdict of some sort. They claim its not political but what else can it be. To imagine the media gets a hold of this new case before the accused, it seems very suspicious to me. As if they want to publicize the case out to the public before the accused even knows they are formally being accused.

    There is due process in our judicial system. At least there is supposed to be. I’m sure there are those who will disagree and immediately say the same old usual negative stuff about the former President. But if we are going to pass judgement before there is any actual evidence presented then isn’t this just a form of public lynching which is basically “a hanging without a trial.” I hope we don’t go back to primitive ways.There was a reason why the Philippine forefathers worked hard so that Philippines can be a Democratic Independent Republic.

    I’m not choosing sides and I want to be fair for the sake of civil rights. So its hard for me to accept the guilt that the current Administration is so quick to place on the former President when in actuality she did not receive any of these funds that is in question and truth is there is not even one single shred of evidence to prove otherwise. I mean, they say there is an amount in question but they don’t prove that these funds were used wrongly. Anyone can say anything about any situation. But if its not or cannot be proven people should refrain from passing inaccurate judgement.

       Thank you  Atty. Reznick. You sound like Arroyo’s lawyer. Sa court ka na lang kaya magngangawa. Dito wa effect yang sinasabi mo.

      • m1600

        malaki ang epekto nya madaming mga tao ang nagbabasa dito kaya pabagsak ng pabagsak si hacinderong presidente nalalaman na na wala talaga siyang ibubuga. 

      • Cal_Reznick

        I’m actually not a lawyer but I will take it as a nice compliment. Thank you. Its hard to be a lawyer.

        And at least your read my comment and commented back. That’s good enough for me. We should respect everyone’s thoughts and opinions.

        Thank you again.

  • My mom

    NANG SIYASATIN ng Senate Blue Ribbon Committee ang kaso ng PCSO may isang taon na ang nakakaraan, binale-wala ito ng mga nasasakdal. Ni wala silang ipinakitang katibayan na nagsasabing ginasta nga nang maayos ang salapi ng bayan. Ngayon, ngangawa-ngawa na wala raw silang katarungan at due process. Mga bwiset!!!

  • gerp

    sabi ng mga matatanda…ang di marunong lumingon sa pinaggalingan ay di makakarating sa paroroonan…  yan ang ginagawa ng kasalukuyang administrasyon…binabalikan ang nakaraan…winawaksi ang mga mali…isinasabuhay ang mga tama…kaya mabuti na lang may ganito tayong Presidente… ang mali noon ay si Gloria at mga alipores nya kasama na ang Corona…ang tama ay makulong sila …mismo!  nadale mo!…BOOOOOOOM! daig pa si Boy Pick Up!
