Lintang Bedol arrives in Camp Crame

By |


HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU. Former Commission on Elections (Comelec) official Lintang Bedol glances at Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes as he answers questions during a press conference Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at the Comelec office. Bedol, who was allegedly linked to massive election fraud during the 2004 presidential election, surrendered to the authorities on Tuesday. AP

MANILA, Philippines – Former Maguindanao election supervisor Lintang Bedol arrived at the Philippine National Police (PNP) custodial center in Camp Crame shortly after 12 noon Tuesday.

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has decided to detain Bedol in Camp Crame after convening for an hour after the former election supervisor appeared at their office at around 9:00 a.m earlier.

Bedol arrived at the PNP custodial center aboard a white Toyota Innova. He was wearing a bulletproof vest.

The media were not given a chance to interview Bedol as the gates of the custodial center were immediately closed after his vehicle arrived.

Bedol’s lawyer, Roberto Ultado Jr.  said his client was detained under the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for one week before he was turned over to the Comelec. He also said that DILG gave security to Bedol.
Bedol disappeared after he was summoned by the Comelec to testify on alleged irregularities in the 2007 senatorial elections. He was subsequently cited for contempt and sentenced in absentia to six months imprisonment.

Bedol and former Governor Zaldy Ampatuan of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao last week accused former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of engineering vote-shaving and vote-padding operations in the 2004 presidential and 2007 senatorial elections. With Danica Hermogenes

    malaking pasasalamat sa iyo ng bayan Mr. Bedol. Ikaw ang nakita kong kaunaunahan nag repent tungkol sa mahahalagang issue ng Pinas,  in it’s real sense. hindi plastic ang confession mo. Marami pa sa atin kahit ang mga Obispo ay walang complete repentance. Sana ang complete repentance ay ayon sa will ng ating heavenly Father. Ibabalik mo ang ninakaw mo, all the proceeds from the sin ay kailangan bitawan mo, ibalik. Kasi kung hindi biblical ang change mo, that’s nothing lip service pa rin iyon. Pagharap natin sa Diyos, I hope his answer will not be away from me you evildoer. Kasi not all who cal me Lord,Lord will enter the kingdom of God, only those that do the will of my Father. Complete repentance na ayon sa salita ng Diyos. Catholic tayo, don’t use the excuse that we were not told to open and read the bible.,maraming ipinadala ang Diyos na propeta, 2011 years ago His only begotten son, Our Lord JESUS CHRIST,through your FREINDS,FAMILY AND STRANGERS talking to you.Kaya kahit bobo ka, kung may humility ka,at hindi proud and arrogant, makakaunawa ka ng salita ng diyos.  When you face the Lord, ignorance of it, excuses no one from compliance. Eternity is at stake. perfect ang Heavenly father, how can he include in his kingdom  those that did not completely repent.

    Let all the beans spill in the. 2004 & 2007 elections. Bedol and Zaldy’s joint revelations will only confirm the already known facts that Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was an illegitimate President and Zubiri an illegitimate senator all because all because of the Arroyos’ manipulations during the last 2 elections in 2004 & 2007.These are really “GOOD ACHIEVEMENTS” that will last for your lifetime, Arroyo & Zubiri. CONGRATULATIONS for the cheatings well done!!!!! RIP

    Sana huwag na nating haluan nang relihiyon ito. NAGSORRY NA ANG MGA OBISPO. Kung hindi totoo ang pag-sosorry eh wala silang pinag-iba ni Gloria.  The same feather??.Di naman siguro.

      majority ng mga pilipino naniniwala na elligitimate president talaga si GMA. ilang beses na bang muntik siyang napabagsak noon? ilang people power na ba ang mangyayari sana kung sumama lang din ang simbahang katoliko gaya ng ginawa nila ke marcos at estrada. nagtataka ako non kung bakit hindi nila gagawin kay arroyo. nagdududa talaga ako noon na may ibinibigay si GMA sa kanila. ngayon nakikita natin, meron nga pala.

        ngayong wala na si arroyo at iba na ang pangulo, may nabago naba? Nawala na ba pork barrel ng mga tulisan sa congress na pinagmumulan ng corruption na walang naglalakas loob na ibunyag? Hanggat may mga pulitikong gahaman sa pwesto at ayaw ng umalis iwan ko lang kung aasenso pa tayo.

        Ngayong wala si arroyo at andyan na si ngoyngoy, palagay mo mat magbabago pa? Nawala ba pork barrel ng mga buwaya sa congress, na pinagmumulan ng corruption? Mga senador at tongresmman akal mo malilinis. Look, pag naka pwesto na ayaw ng umalis. Papalit ang asawa, mga anak, babalik ulit, papalit yong kabit, asawa ulit, babalik na naman ulit, etc, etc. akala mo wala ng ibang marunong mamuno. Hamonin mo silang i-ban ang mga politikong naka 3 term na, im sure nobody will bother. Kya kahit na si da king pa naging pangulo at yong mga naka paikot sa kanya ang mga ganid din, nothing will happen.

    i don’t think that we still need mr. bedol…we already knows that there are cheatings done during the 2004 election…we all know that gma cheated and we have done nothing about it…its just a waste of the tax payers money to investigate what we all knew happened last 2004 election…lets not glorify these people who have been instrumental in cheating the whole nation…please don’t waste our taxes for what had happened last 2004…if the congress and the senate would push through with this circus, please don’t use our money for your grandstading…lets move on…

    It was FPJ who won in the 2004 presidential election. It was 85 to 15 percent in favor of FPJ.

    FPJ won in the 2004 presidential election in all the Muslim provinces in Mindanao. The Moros idolized FPJ very much because he played for several times the life of a Moro local hero in the big screen. He was very much loved by them.  I saw the counting in at least 3 polling precincts in Sultan Kudarat.  It was a 85 to 15 percent in favor of FPJ.  But I think it was not GMA who directed the cheating. The local executives did it to please their candidate GMA. They were the ones who pressured the likes of Bedol in exchange of huge cash. Where the huge cash came from. Of course from the IRA of the provinces. They don’t have program of expenditures for their IRA. It is the governor who will dictate how the IRA should be appropriated.  Of course a large chunk of it will go to his private use.  At the town level, it is the mayor who does this.  That explains why there is almost no development in such places compared to ours Christians. This is the practice in those parts of the country. It started long before even before Marcos’ presidency. It continued during the time of Cory, FVR, Erap, GMA.  It will continue during the time of PNoy.
