Matillano faces 11 raps over SALN

Even long-retired government officials are not safe from the Office of the Ombudsman’s intensified crackdown on the errant reporting of statements of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).

The Office of the Ombudsman has filed in the Sandiganbayan 11 charges against retired Chief Superintendent Eduardo S. Matillano of the Philippine National Police for failing to file his SALN for eight years and for lying about his assets from 1994 to 2004.

Matillano retired two weeks earlier than his scheduled exit on Nov. 30, 2004, as chief of the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group amid reports that he was using a blue Jaguar X-Type luxury sedan and a yacht, which the police confiscated from alleged drug lord Jackson Dy.

The Ombudsman has tightened up on SALN reporting in recent months, especially after Chief Justice Renato Corona was ousted in May (mainly for being dishonest in his SALN declarations) as a result of the Senate impeachment trial.

By a 20-3 vote, the senators took Corona to task for his failure to include $2.4 million in bank deposits—on top of an allegedly commingled amount worth P80.7 million—in his SALNs from 2002 to 2010.

The Senate verdict came after 43 days of the nationally televised impeachment trial for culpable violation of the Constitution and betrayal of public trust.

The charges against Matillano were filed by Assistant Special Prosecutor Honorio C. Ebora Jr. after Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales approved the indictment a month ago.

Based on the charge sheet, Matillano was accused of perjury for omitting key assets in his SALN reports in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

The assets included:

— Five properties—two lots in Kingsville Subdivision, Antipolo City, with a combined area of over 500 square meters, two office buildings with a combined floor area of 360 square meters and a 1.69-hectare lot in Roxas, Palawan province.

— Nine motor vehicles registered under his name and his wife, Elizabeth—a 1996 Kia Ceres, 1998 Nissan Patrol, 1998 Honda motorbike, 2001 Toyota Hi-Ace, Suzuki Esteem, Mitsubishi Fuso, Isuzu dump truck, Mitsubishi tractor and Isuzu vehicle.

— Investments in five companies—Warbird Security and Investigation Agency Inc., Palawan Agromate Products Inc., First Food Caterers and Managers Corp., Mega Source Technological and Industrial Corp. and Camtrade Industrial Supply Corp.

Matillano was also charged because he failed to file SALNs for eight years—from 1994 to 2000 and in 2004.

The offense is punishable under Section 8 of Republic Act No. 6713, or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

Matillano’s bond has been set at P98,000.

Matillano is a member of Philippine Military Academy Class 1971, which includes Senators Panfilo Lacson and Gregorio Honasan.

    Dapat lang gagawin yan sa Ombudsman! The problem with these generals is that they are busy enriching themselves while in the service and leaving in sad state the conditions of the lowly soldiers working under them.

  • ramabel

    bail of 98k lang sa dami ng properties involved… sisiw na sisiw, and yet this case will last a decade or 2.. pero kung ordinaryong employee lang, expect d aabutin ng matagal at tanggal sa serbisyo agad, kasi wala siyang kapit at pera para mapatagal ang kaso… baka pwede nang repasuhin ang mga bail sa mga akusado tulad na lang ng mga graft cases, milyon-milyon na nakulimbat, pero ang bail omg,baryang-barya langl …  paging mga tongressman at senatong, pagtuunan nyo naman pansin  ang batas na ito..

  • anton kinuton

    Punta kayo sa Kingsville  Antipolo along Marcos Highway at magtanong tanong sa mga kapitbahay kung gaano kayaman si Matillano. Isama niyo na rin sa inyong pagtatanong si Carding Dapat na dating officer ng PNP/BJMP sa inyong pagtatanong. Magkakalapit lang ang kanilang mga bahay. These are big time in the place.

    Matthew 17:24-28  After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the tax  came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”25 “Yes, he does,” he replied.
    When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?”
    26 “From others,” Peter answered.
    “Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him. 27 “But so that we may not cause offense, go  to the lake and throw out your net. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”
    akala siguro ni sir, anak siya ng hari o kaya naman siya ang hari.

    Madame Ombudsman, I sincerely SALUTE your courage.  It is high time that people in Uniform, Retired and Active must be scrutinized on how they acquired so much wealth, and how some are able to financed candidacy to high elective offices after stepping out from the uniform.  Please watch your back very closely because you are stepping on the toes of the UNTOUCHABLES. THE NATION WILL BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR DEDICATED PUBLIC SERVICE. YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND WHICH THE COUNTRY NEEDS FOR US TO MOVE FORWARD, AND I THANK YOU.

    Kong tutuo ito, which I personally believe it is, alam kong marami pa diyan and katulad ni Martillano. Widen the area of investigation and give no mercy to no one. This will, in effect, discourage proteges of the current administration who accepted positions primarily to CORONIZE  and MARTILLANIZE while in office.

    Dapat palawakin pa nila ang pag iimbestiga sa mga nagpayaman sa pwesto.Umpisahan na rin nila mga retired multi-milionaire admirals ng Philippine Coast Guard.Imbestigahan itong sila Gosingan, Lista,Tamayo at mga iba pa.Ang mga admirals na mga ito ay dapat usigin ng Ombudsman at Sandigan Bayan sa kanila mga “ill gotten wealth”.Biruin mo nakatira sa luxury condominium sa “The Fort” may vacation condo rin sa Tagaytay,mga luxury cars nila BMW,Montero,Mini Van,Lahat ng anak may milyun milyun account sa bangko,kunyari mga asawa nila may negosyo para pagtakpan kunyari ang kanilang pamumuhay mayaman. Ang mga retired admirals na ito madalas nasa golf club kadalasan.Magtataka ka lang paano magkakasya ang kanilang “retirement pay” sa pambayad ng mga luxury golf club dues? Akala mo kung sino mag aasta mga asawa ng mga ito at may mga “butler” pa sa kanilang condominium.Pwede ko ibulgar ang mga ito kung kinakailangan ng Ombudsman.

    Ito ay tama. A Chief Superintendent of PNP at that not truthful in filing his SALN is contemptible.  And failing to file his SALN for a total of eight years is the WORSE!  Let us make another example on this guy who thinks he is above the law.  Let us make sure he goes to prison.  WALANGHIYA!!!

    Ano ang nangyari sa kaso ni GEN. LIGOT? Ano ang ginagawa ng korte? Tinutulugan ba? Bilis-bilisan ninyo. The evidence are so clear, is it still hard to decide? We are watching you judges!!

    Congrats and keep it up Ombudsman Morales! There are a lot of past SALN to really look into – those of past Presidents, Cabinet Secretaries and government appointees in different Departments, Govt Corporations and especially those past and present employees of those government agencies that had been topping the list of the most corrupt government departments and agencies before like the DPWH, Bureau of Customs, DepEd, BIR, DENR, COMELEC. And please don’t forget to look into the SALN’s of our past and present “honorables” in Congress & Senate. Ayoko na po muna banggitin si GMA kasi bugbog na bugbog na po, baka lalong papandak e.

Ang mga hinuhuli ay yung mga kumukupit, hindi yung nangungurakot (maliit lang ang kupit pero yun ang natitiklo).

    marahil maliit lang ang parusa dahil maliit lang ang piyansa at malamang matatagalan ang kaso dahil meron pantustos. at marahil ang remedy ay mag file ng saln kahit late na masyado. late filing lang kung baga at babayaran anuman ang dapat bayaran dahil marami naman pera.

    The Ombudsman must endeavor also to look after the real assets and lifestyles of former and current military personnel who were/are assigned abroad as ‘Attaches’. Our foreign affairs department has branded this ‘Attaches’ as ‘Figureheads’ and doing ‘nothing’ but to fatten their pockets.Have you ever wonder why our defense capabilities are below standard and lagging behind our neighbors? I also came across a news report that some of these ‘Attaches’ were implicated in ‘gun smuggling’. I wish the Defense Secretary is also mandated to look into this.

     Sabi ko na nga ba umpisa pa lang ng article, PMAyer na naman ito. Di naman siguro sa loob ng Academy itinuturo kung paano mangurakot. Kasi marami naman general na la din gaanong pera pag retire. Halos pension lang inaasahan. Palagay ko sa field na nila natutunan. Kasi ang daming  paraan masra maka kurakot pag nasa poder na. Biro mo pag head ka ng CIDG, kahit di ka siguro humingi regular and dating ng grasya sa lamisa mo. Saang kamay ni hudas mo kukunin ang ganyan karaming pera na pambili ng mga properties na yan? Mas malaki pa sweldo ng isang department manager ng isang GFI kesa sa isang general? Mabuti naman nagtatrabho na Ombudsman. Sana marami pa’ng madale kahit retired na.
