MANILA, Philippines—A former top ranking official of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) made unauthorized disbursements amounting to P337.68 million from the confidential intelligence funds (CIF) of the agency during in the last three years of the Arroyo administration, according to documents obtained from the PCSO.

Documents showed that former PCSO general manager (GM) Rosario Uriarte withdrew a total of P352.68 from the PCSO’s intelligence funds from 2008 to June 2010 although her office’s authorized allocation from the CIF for the three-year period amounted only to just P15 million.

The CIF was first implemented during the Estrada administration upon the request of former PCSO chairman Rosario N. Lopez “to buy” information to determine if the funds and ambulances were being used for the purposes for which they were really intended.

“In order to effectively and efficiently implement these charitable activities and projects and noncharities as mandated by the various laws, there is need for continuous and discreet monitoring, thereof, specially their utilization and/or usage so that the public may feel the impact of government care and concern for the marginalized sectors of our society,” Lopez had said.

The PCSO chairman and general manager were entitled to receive an annual CIF allocation of P5 million each.

‘Midnight’ withdrawals

Documents signed by Mercedes J. Hinayon, acting manager of the treasury department of PCSO, showed that Uriarte withdrew P138.22 million from the CIF from January to June 2010 alone.

Uriarte made 11 withdrawals in the six-month period, just before President Aquino assumed office in July 2010, on top of the P132.76 million she withdrew in 2009 and P81.69 million in 2008.

Thus, Uriarte withdrew a total of P352.68 million from the CIF in just three years.

In another document, Hinayon revealed that former PCSO chair Sergio Valencia spent P13.31 million from the CIF from 2008 to 2010, still below the authorized P15 million allocation for the three-year period.

Hinayon said Valencia withdrew P4.8 million from the CIF in 2008, P5.6 million in 2009 and another P2.7 million in 2010, for a total of P13.3 million in three years while he was PCSO chairman.

Hinayon said Uriarte was authorized to disburse only P15 million from CIF for three years but her withdrawals reached P352.68 million. On the other hand, Valencia used P13 million of his authorized P15 million CIF during the same period.

Plunder raps

Uriarte and Valencia, along with other former PCSO officials, are now coaccused in the plunder case filed against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for the alleged misuse of PCSO funds.

Other former PCSO officials charged were former board members Manuel Morato, Jose Taruc V, Raymundo Roquero and Ma. Fatima Valdes; and former assistant general manager for finance Benigno Aguas.

Also indicted were former Commission on Audit Chairman Reynaldo Villar and Nilda Plaras, who served as intelligence/confidential fund audit unit head.

Former PCSO board member Ma. Alleta Tolentino earlier claimed that former President Arroyo had a direct hand in the diversion of the CIF from the charity agency in the last three years of her administration.

Tolentino said under the “modus operandi,” GM Uriarte signed memorandum orders requesting for the disbursement of the funds. The MOs would be directly brought to the Office of the President and then signed by Arroyo.

Tolentino and the prosecution team presented seven MOs from 2008 to 2010 that were initialed by Arroyo to show the conspiracy between Malacañang and Uriarte in diverting funds supposedly meant for charity.

Arroyo is currently under hospital arrest at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center while Morato is confined at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City after an operation.

Taruc left the country on July 19 on board a Cathay Pacific flight and has not returned to the country.

Valencia and Aguas turned themselves in at the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group office on Oct. 4 and are now detained at the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame.

    It is quite interesting to know how Serge Valencia “liquidated” his 13+Million Confidential Intelligence Fund. Knowing that he is “decent” man, his obvious complicity to the plunder crime being charged vs GMA et al is a puzzle of which fiction are typically made of.

    Wow PCSO needs 300m for intelligence. When you really think about it, you don’t even need 300m to run the entire PCSO.

  • lapasan

    Intel fund for the PCSO? I thought that this fund is only allocated to the AFP, PNP, NBI, PDEA or other government agencies whose nature of duties requires the gathering of intelligence information. The system of our government has many flaws so that it allows a practice that can institutionalize corruption. Some local elected government executive have even allocated themselves of intel fund. There is no problem with that if the fund is really spent for the purpose. But is it the duty of a chief executive to gather intelligence if he keep the fund to himself and spend it at his discretion. Will he organize his own intel network? If he gathers intel info, to whom does he disseminate the info to? will he keep it to himself or will he pass it to his chief of police? Won’t it make the position of the chief of executive awkward in that kind of situation? I am not accusing any local chief executive of wrong doing in connection with the fund. But the scenario that this intel fund might be abused by those entrusted to it may happen as evidenced to what happened in the PCSO.

    The PDI report said the “PCSO chairman and general manager were entitled to receive an annual CIF allocation of P5 million each.” Hoiwever, it is puzzling to know that the Treasury Department of the PCSO gave in to the demand of Uriarte to withdraw P132.22 M from the Confidential Intelligence Fund (CIF) from January to June 2010. Then, again the PCSO treasurer allowed Uriarte to make 11 withdrawals in the six-month period, just before President Aquino assumed office in July 2010, on top of the P132.76 million she withdrew in 2009 and P81.69 million in 2008.
    The PCSO treasurer could have reminded Uriarte that she was only authorized to withdraw P5M from the CIF each year. From my own understanding,  it appears that the treasurer was intimidated.  She could have emulated what present COA Commissioner Heidi Mendoza did to bust corruption in the AFP. Instead, Acting Treasurer Mercedes Hinayon  kept the financial fiasco at PCSO to herself. Why?

  • NoWorryBHappy

    :
    Samantalang ang pangkarinawang Pilipino ay naghihirap, ang mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno natin sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni Gloria Arroyo ay nag-wi-withdraw lang ng milyong-milyong salapi. Babae pa. Dapat ay gawing bitay ay hatol sa salang katiwalian sa pamahalaan. Imagine the many lives that these hundreds of millions of pesos could have saved and uplifted had they been used serve the needs of the people. There is a need to bring back the death penalty. Plunder must be punishable by death.

    During Gloria’s time, I kept wondering why there were so many incessant ads running in government-owned channels extolling her virtues, and almost always, have PAGCOR or PCSO in the acknowledgements. The ads would even run back-to-back, in repeat loops, whatever time of day or night.

    Now I know why. These were her cash cows, and the ads served not only to maximize revenue, but also as tribute by grateful benefactors among her cronies, in addition to brainwashing the public.

    15M allowed, 352M withdrawn…that’s overspending by more than 2000%, must be record of some kind. I don’t think the even the Bridges to Nowhere will beat that ratio of allocation to expenditure.

    The present administration now has a strong documentary trail that leads straight to Gloria in addition to the previous Senate testimony by Uriarte, and the flight of those indicted is a strong sign of their guilt. I wonder what palusot Gloria & company would come up with this time…

    Rigoberto Tiglao already has one. According to him, those millions were used by intelligence agents for the medical needs of poor people. And “countering jueteng”.

    The hangman’s noose is slowly tightening on the necks of former PCSO officials.

    With the testimonies of Ms. Mercedes Hinayon, acting manager of the treasury department of the PCSO, based on documents she brought to light, show how rosario uriarte, former PCSO general manager, withdrew intelligence funds well above the approved allocation for CIF from 2008 to 2010.  In like manner, the documents also show that sergio valencia, former PCSO chairman for the same period, showed that valencia did not exceed the P5M annual allocation for CIF.

    Although valencia did not exceed the yearly approved allocation, is it proper and legal for two officers of PCSO to spend millions of intelligence funds at the same time?

    Halos lahat ng kakampi ni Arroyo ay may kaso, 4 na kaso ni Arroyo ay dismissed na , sa lahat ng Presidente mga Aquino ang mahilig na kasuhan ang kalaban pero ang mga friends naman kahit corrupt ay okey lang. Pag may anomalya ang friends ayaw paimbestigahan. Ibs may HARI NA ANG PILIPINAS.
