    Ombudsman Morales, you have re-established the pride of being a graft buster. Merceditas Gutierrez and GMA tore the justice system down.

    Kudos to you, Madam Ombudsman Conchita Morales for a job well done!
    I shall pray for your success, good health and personal safety. 
    Thank you for protecting the integrity of public service.
    God bless you!

    I am a Cebuano and I can say that when the corrupt governor Gwen Gacia (candidate for Senator in 2013) delivered her own SOPA last Friday, she was stung by the fact there were charges against her on the 3-year long Balili Case. These charges were unattended deliberately by the former ombudsman Merceditas Gutieres (Protector of Gloria Arroyo) who also protected her. Now is the time for CHANGE!  Governor Gwen Garcia of Cebu should also be imprisoned together with her corrupt friend (Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo”. The new ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales deserves congratulation for work well done.

    Between Madam Morales and Merceditas Gutierrez, no basis of comparison.

    Viva Ombudsman Morales!!!

    Mga Pilipino humahanga sa katapangan mo! Siguro nga great great grandmther mo si Gabriela Silang.


    Of course, she’s a willing Noynoy lapdog…doing lanterns of lies for the sake of His Mediocrity.  Bending the rule of law for the love of His Mediocrity…but not without benefits…afterall who personally appointed her and enjoys the perks… Sabi ko:  “Kayo ang gumawa niyan”!
    Hahahahaha!  Enjoy!

    Her showdown with Cuevas (all due respect to him) and Senator Defensor-Santiago was one of the best episodes, if not the best, of the CJ impeachment trial. Clash of the Titans, Legislative style.

    Madame Morales, marami pong nakapending na kaso laban sa appointees ni PNOY.  Para hindi sabihin ng taong bayan na hindi kayo tutoo sa trabaho ninyo, i-resolve nyo na po ang mga ito.  Hindi ko na po sabihin kung sino ang mga iyon at alam ninyo na po.  Yong iba nga po ay mga KKK ni PNOY.  Pag na-resolve ang mga ito lalong maniniwala ang mga tao sa inyo at kay PNOY.

      hindi mo masabi dahil wala kang alam…why not make a complaint and submit it to the Ombudsman if you are really serious of your allegations?

      • coladu

         We filed some that is why I know.  There are others filed but not by us.

    I was so touched and happy when the President made a special mention of Madam Conchita Morales. She really deserves that accolade. Thank you Madam.

    In your exchanges of ideas with Cuevas, you showed your caliber as a lawyer, and as a UP graduate.I was really wanting to show my appreciation to you for your bravery and intelligence and wisdom. Kaya, ni like nalang kita sa Facebook account mo to at least show my appreciation.Keep up the good work Madam.

    Carpio-Morales is admired by the President because she is able to feed information to the media and public by way of cases and accusations that make his political enemies look bad even if those information and accusations are inaccurate and most often exaggerated.
