Enrile gave 18 senators P1.6M each for Christmas

But only P250K each to 4 others

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile played Santa Claus last Christmas, making a list and checking it twice as he gave gifts to Senate members and personnel apparently on the basis of who were “naughty” or “nice.”

Enrile gave 22 senators a total of almost P30 million, a gift that one senator said was “unconscionable and unconstitutional.”

The cash gift allegedly came from the funds allotted for the Senate post vacated by President Aquino when he won the presidential election in 2010.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer on Tuesday tried to set an interview with Enrile in connection with the cash gift but he was not immediately available. A member of his staff said Enrile was on his way out of town and could no longer be reached for comment.

The various senators the Inquirer talked to agreed that the P1.6 million bonanza for each of the 18 senators was the biggest yet. Enrile has been Senate President since November 2008.

The senators could not remember the amounts distributed in Christmases past but the highest one recalled that it was close to P1 million.

Enrile possibly made all Senate employees happy, since according to the Inquirer sources—“everyone, including the drivers and the security personnel”—benefited from bigger bonuses last Christmas, amounting to up to P120,000 each. Some of them said the amount varied from the previous P55,000 to P80,000.

The Christmas gifts, billed as “additional MOOE” or maintenance and other operating expenses, certainly made the Senate one of the happiest workplaces last Christmas, but some were happier than the others.

That was because the Senate President’s Christmas list for P1.6 million per senator did not include four of his colleagues.

Senators Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV, Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Alan Peter and sister Pia Cayetano got only P250,000 each, Inquirer sources said.

Gigi Reyes letter

The Inquirer obtained a copy of a two-page letter signed by Enrile’s chief of staff, Jessica “Gigi” Reyes, to Senate Budget Director Rene Chua confirming in writing Enrile’s verbal instructions.

“The SP (Senate President) is authorizing the release of the additional MOOE (next 2 tranches for December to the ff. senators):” the letter said.

The handwritten note listed Senate President Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, Senators Edgardo Angara, Franklin Drilon, Loren Legarda, Francis Escudero, Sergio Osmeña III, Joker Arroyo, Manuel Villar, Teofisto Guingona III, Lito Lapid, Ramon Revilla Jr., Panfilo Lacson, Francis Pangilinan, Gregorio Honasan, Aquilino Pimentel III, Ralph Recto and Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

The note said Enrile was “waiving/foregoing any further additional MOOE” for himself.

Senate sources said Chua got verbal instructions to give P1.6 million to 18 senators and P250,000 to four senators.

The Inquirer was able to confirm the gifts from three senators who got P1.6 million each but they asked not to be named so as not to rankle their colleagues.

Curiously, three other senators on the list denied receiving the money.

The Inquirer also saw a copy of a check for P250,000 issued from Enrile’s Senate account.

‘Nothing irregular’

Two senators who said they were given P1.6 million each said there was nothing irregular about the “gift.”

They explained that the Senate President had realigned to savings the budget for the 24th and vacant Senate post and distributed the funds to other senators.

For their additional Christmas take, the senators have President Aquino to thank for. The 24th seat was the one held by the then senator before he ran and won for President in 2010.

“There’s nothing irregular about it. Under the Constitution, the heads of constitutional offices like the Senate President are given the power to realign and utilize appropriations in the budget to other existing items,” one senator told the Inquirer.

“In the case of the Senate, there is MOOE for 24 senators but there are only 23 (of us). Therefore, there are unutilized funds which can be realigned to other existing items,” the senator added.

Accepted practice

Another senator said using savings to give away as additional MOOE or bonuses was an “accepted and regular practice” in the Senate and other government agencies.

“You can source or pay incentives out of your savings. That is a traditional practice,” the second senator said.

The Senate’s MOOE for 2012 amounted to P1.4 billion. It includes travel and communication expenses, rent, supplies and utilities, professional services and representation expenses.

But the two senators said the Senate President also had the option to return the unused budget to the treasury.

“Of course, we have that option to realign or not to realign,” the other senator said.

“Yes we can. In some cases we return (it),” the second senator said.

Suspicious

But another senator found the distribution of the cash gift as anomalous and “very suspicious.”

The senator said that while the Senate President was authorized to use so-called savings of the Senate, discretionary funds should be “disbursed only for public purposes” and supported by required documents.

“A Christmas gift of P1.6 million does not serve a public purpose. It is unconscionable and unconstitutional,” the senator said.

The senator pointed out that the “additional MOOE” was just a cover. “It’s the end of the year. What do you need additional MOOE for?” the senator asked.

‘Bribe’ to head off coup

The senator added that the P1.6 million, in checks issued from Enrile’s account, could be “interpreted as a bribe to prevent a Senate reorganization this Jan. 21, when Congress resumes session.”

Enrile had been the subject of ouster rumors ostensibly for his opposition to major pieces of legislation pushed by the Aquino administration, including the sin tax and reproductive health (RH) bills.

These were passed before the Christmas break after long and acrimonious debates in both houses of Congress and which required the President meeting with lawmakers to make a pitch for the passage of the controversial measures.

Untenable

Some of Enrile’s own colleagues view his position as Senate President to be untenable because as leader of the opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), he would be campaigning against the administration alliance during the midterm elections this May.

The senator, who questioned Enrile’s distribution of the money, noted that the Senate President recently talked about possibly resigning after the May elections.

That means, the senator said, Enrile wanted to stay on as Senate President during the crucial three-month campaign period for the midterm elections in May.

The senator said Enrile could use the influence of the office of the third highest official of the land to campaign not only against the administration but also for his son Jack, a representative of Cagayan who is running as a senatorial candidate under the UNA slate.

Enrile belongs to UNA which includes Vice President Jejomar Binay, archrival of Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas, touted as the possible presidential candidate of the Aquino-led Liberal Party in 2016.

UNA also includes former President Joseph Estrada, whose other son, San Juan Rep. JV Ejercito, is also running under the UNA senatorial ticket.

Unfilled positions

A look at the Senate budget for 2012 showed that of the P2.8 billion appropriated last year for the chamber’s operations, there was a considerable amount of savings generated from “unfilled positions” that were otherwise provided for in the budget.

For 2012, there were 2,162 permanent positions in the Senate, including the senators and their staff. But there were only 1,923 filled positions, leaving 239 unfilled.

P51.8M unused

The Senate has a P708.1-million budget for the salaries of all permanent positions but the total budget for the filled positions amounted to P656.3 million. That meant P51.8 million in unused funds.

Aside from this, the Senate Electoral Tribunal which has a separate budget of P105.7 million has 52 unfilled positions, corresponding to unused funds worth P112,000.

‘Vindictiveness’

Another senator said Enrile’s discrimination against four senators smacked of “professional jealousy and political vindictiveness.”

The two Cayetanos and Arroyo belong to the minority, which Trillanes joined after a feud with Enrile. Santiago is with the majority.

Trillanes had a bitter public spat with Enrile last September when the much younger senator rose to challenge the veteran politician over the bill that sought to divide Camarines Sur province.

Secret negotiator

Angered by this, Enrile revealed Trillanes’ previously secret role as Mr. Aquino’s back-channel negotiator with China.

The Senate President read on the Senate floor embarrassing notes of Trillanes’ meeting with then Philippine Ambassador to China Sonia Brady in Beijing, prompting Trillanes to walk out of the session hall.

Biscuits returned

Last December, Santiago disclosed that Enrile had returned her and Sen. Pia Cayetano’s Christmas gifts (biscuits from Iloilo) because of their sponsorship of the RH bill that Enrile opposed.

Though Enrile was one of Santiago’s wedding sponsors, the veteran senator reportedly also resented Santiago when she upstaged him in a survey of senators’ performance during the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Enrile was widely praised for his handling of the trial. He also allegedly resented Sen. Alan Cayetano, the minority leader, for questioning some of his rulings, particularly during the Corona impeachment trial.

Enrile’s prerogative

Aside from the questionable use of the Senate funds as Christmas gifts, a senator wondered about the basis of Enrile in discriminating against his four colleagues.

“What’s the legal basis for excluding four senators?” the senator said.

Another senator laughed when told that four colleagues got only P250,000 each.

That, the senator said, was also up to Enrile to decide. With a report from Norman Bordadora

Have SHAME senators for the other country keep helping Pilipinos who are victim of typhoon in Mindanao…. Please return it back to the coffers of the government because ITS OUR MONEY not from the pocket of Juan Ponce Enrile who is the brain of Martial Law.

  • catmanjohn

    Enrile, the great Corruptor, let us hope this is the final nail in your coffin, so please just GO! and let the Nation rise to its proper place where bribes and handouts, legal or not, is a thing of the past. To think of all the family and children who are homeless and struggling, while these politicians abscond with taxpayers money is unforgivable. They should all return the money and donate it to the Philippine Red Cross, and show the world they have turned the page from the corrupt past.

    To the people screaming “thief” and “magnanakaw”, I have news for you: 1.6M is not enough to bribe the senators in our country. This amount is mere pocket change for them. Let’s not dig in too deep into this matter – this was merely a gift from Senate President with no malicious intent. Again, 1.6M is not enough to quash the coup attempts. He would have to bribe the other senators  twenty times that amount.

    • 3_feathers

      Maybe not enough for you.. These people steal billions in the past and still it’s not enough for you… Look around you, on the streets, homeless people beg for a mere peso and still you think 1.6M is not enough…

      • 12JEM

         Para sa mga senators na iyan ang 1.6M ay bale wala nga lang dahil hindi naman  dahil daang million ang kanilang kinasanayan.

        Sa kay Enrile, kahit Ilocano iyang taong iyan ay bale wala rin ang 30 Million dahil hindi naman sarilling pera niya ang kanyang ginamit….kundi pera ng bayan.

        Kaya ang HIYA ay hiwalay sa kanyang nakakasuklam na MUKHA.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      James Canono you are brainless donkeyhole.  To millions of Filipinos a 1.6m is a lifetime income. 

      I can’t believe Filipinos has that kind of mentality.

      Their is always malicious intent, first, so that Enrile’s cronies in the senate will not oust him.  The money is for the people not for the vulture senators.
      They don’t need twenty times that amount to sway a vote.  Any amount of money for the vultures will do.

    Shame to Senate President #Juan Ponce Enrile. If the 30 million pesos is coming from his personal pocket then that’s fine, but if he disburses a government money, in big amount, billed under MOOE and give it as a gift to his colleagues I think that’s different story. If he has the real heart to uplift the finances of the government, the best way of handling that excess budget is to return it to government coffers (dahil hindi tayo mayaman at alam nyang maraming utang ang ating gobyerno) because that money is intended for the services of all the Filipinos and not to a handful colleagues in the Senate.

  • jbadge

    What Enrile did, if it were true, was deplorable. The bonuses he doled out was not his to give in the first place… it belongs to the Philippine treasury! The recipients of these bribes, as others may call it, should return the money. Well, this is more like wishful thinking on my part because the recipients are Filipino politicians and their servants, therefore they have no shame, corrupt, abusive if unchecked, and act as if they are God’s gifts to the society. They have no humility and treat others as ignorant creatures. Look at these senators- they are the same ones who demand transparency and honesty, among other positive traits, from the administration and other politicians, but at a drop of a hat (a hat with millions of pesos in it) they show their true colors. You will notice that these senators will stay quiet and lay low for awhile until this issue dies down so they could keep the money. WHAT A FREAKING SHAME!!!

Either the Filipino people have been asleep on the job, or the Senate has done a very good job of covering this practice up.

    And I’m sure the whiny crab losers who were crying “Bribe!” when P-Noy used his influence to help pass the RH Bill are going to be completely even handed here, and will criticize this, even though its their boy JPE doing it.

    Hahahaha

    • Simon Ward

      I don’t think the issue here is simply bribery. It appears to be the unethical, and perhaps illegal, appropriation of excess public funds in pursuit of a personal agenda. If indeed P-Noy spread a few million pesos around, isn’t it possible it came from his own personal stash?

      Bribing people with your own loot is one thing, and heck, it really is a part of politics whether we like it or not. But playing Santa with public funds already earmarked for a senator who happens to have left his post is arguably a lot worse, certainly from an ethical viewpoint.

      • Simon Ward

        You’re absolutely right. Public funds are used for bribes on a regular basis, and in quantities way larger than we’re talking about here. Nonetheless, when you get a fish on the hook, you reel it in, and if it happens to be the Senate president, you clobber it good ‘n’ hard on the head!

        The accusations against P-Noy were that he’d be assigning pork barrel funds based off how people voted though, which (ignoring the fact that those accusations were unfounded and not backed by any actual evidence) would be similar to this.

        I’m not saying this is acceptable, for the record.  I’m just saying it’ll be interesting to see how certain people react to this. The same people who defended Sotto’s plagiarism, for instance, now appear to be quite alright with bribery.

    With a senate president like this there is no hope for the Philippines. It´s not that he didnt give the 1.6 million to 4 of the senators, the point is he spend our money to enrich those who have already enough.

My personal view is that it’s just the kettle calling the pot black. Parepareho lang silang nagpapalusot at the expense of the taxpayers money to control power. At yon namang senator na nagpaepek na santo ay tanungin nyo kung bakit hanggang ngayon di pa rin pumipirma ng “bank waiver” niya. Lahat yang senador na yan ay bilyonaryo in terms of pesos and majority of their loot comes from the government which were sourced from taxpayers money. Get real!

    Why can’t the president demand the return of those funds?   That’s just the tip of the iceberg. It is an example of how politicians and the military and the police engage in routine thievery.

     “There’s nothing irregular about it. Under the Constitution, the heads
    of constitutional offices like the Senate President are given the power

    Ang ibig po bang sabihin ng “to realign and utilize appropriation in the budget to other existing item” ay “to distribute to all senators and senate employee as a cash gift during Christmas?

    Ang tagalog po ba ng  “Existing Item” ay “Kakamping Senador at Empleyado ng Senado?”

    Para nyo naman pong tinatarantado ang taong bayan sa pag justify ninyo sa aksyon ng Senate President.

Unlike today, enrile and his son are incumbent, binay and his 2 children are incumbent, 3 marcoses are all incumbent, 3 arroyos are incumbent, 4 estradas are incumbent.

        Likewise, there is the one and only mar roxas. no other incumbent politician from roxas family.

        Aquinos and Roxases are definitely better compared to enriles, binays, marcoses, arroyos, estradas.

        Another brain in the foot rather than in the head. Mag-isip ka kaibigan kung tamma ka.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Points to ponder for the critics:

    1. It takes two to tango. The giver and the taker are equally guilty so why is Enrile singled out in all the criticisms? Exempted ba yong tumanggap e sila ang nakikinabang?

    2. Funds use for campaigning – how could that be? Are we too gullible to believe that all those senators who received the cash gifts will campaign for Jack Enrile? In the first place, those funds are not personal funds of Enrile so why should they look at it as a debt of gratitude?

    3. Vendictive – this allegation obviously comes from either Trillanes, Santiago, Pia Cayetano. Their rationale is focused on “discrimination.” What does it tells us? It simply means that Enrile should have given 1.6 million to all senators without favor. E di maliwanag na hayok din pala sa pera ang mga ito, hindi ba? They are not concerned that the money should not be given as “unconscionable gifts.” They are mad because they did not receive equal share of the pie hence, “discriminated.”

    4. Bribe to head off coup? The same rationale. How could the cash gifts be a bribe when they all know that the money came from Senate savings and not from Enrile’s pocket? If I am Enrile’s senate nemesis and accepted 1.6 million, that does not change my belief of dethroning him because I owe no debt of gratitude. In sum, the reasons advance by the critics specially the author are preposterous to say the least. But I hasten to add however, that the act of giving those unconscionable cash gifts, despite the fact that Enrile did not receive the same, is simply unconscionable.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_POBZSV5PGTGUS3YA2KR2NZI3HA Alex

      Why Enrile?

      Even if the rest of senators openly admit to Enrile that they are salivating for the unused senate funds, only Enrile was given the power, as a senate president, to realign these funds and release them.

      1. as said in my statement above, your reason does not make Enrile less responsible for these gifts.

      2, 4 I, for one, is not that gullible to be swayed to vote for Jack and also not gullible to believe that such gifts do not expect anything in return. Enrile need not spell it out to them, “alam na”.

      3. I am not interested in personal feud between Enrile and these 4 senators, but the reason is obvious as to why they receive the least amounts. This is also an indication that Enrile treats the savings as his personal fund, so he can allocate them in varying proportions without a need to justify  why who will receive how much. This is also a latent reminder for the lucky ones that they should be thankful to him for that.
       
      Next time, try harder to downplay Enrile’s role in this scandalous gift-giving.

    • Garo Ungaro

      Now, rest assured the future of the Senate body is control by the senate president…To those senators who accept the gift…Your as guilty has the giver. Now, as they called it “utang na loob”.

    Seriously? Enrile gave P1.8 million to each senator, totaling to P51.3 million – which is the amount of the Senate’s savings from last year? Does these senators understand that these public funds came from the taxes of hard-earned money of the common folks, who strive to feed their families and making ends meet everyday?

    While the rest of the Filipinos are working hard, these senators are living luxurious lives! Unbelievable! How pathetic!

    So, this is the reason why the senate and for that matter, the gov’t is approving a flawed fiscal budget year in, year out. Allocate 24 senate seat for a 23 member seats. Malacaniang propose it, the senate approves it. Yun palang budget para sa ika 24th senate seat, is for the boys….ang galing nila ano. Niwala man lang isa sa kanila ang pumapalag tuwing nagrerebisa sila ng fiscal budget every year.
    In this case, lahat sila makakapal ang mukha, no exception, kung baga pre-meditated ang nagawang crimen (pagnanakaw), lalo pa dahil hindi lang unang beses nangyari ito. Lahat sila ay kasabwat sa salang pagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan, ground for impeachment. Pati na ang congresso, dumaan din ang yearly budget proposal sa kanila. This is like appropriating salary and perks to the GHOST EMPLOYEE, that is the non existant 24th senator.

    Well, a case can be file in the SUPREME COURT in this regard, any takers among the brilliant lawyers with nothing to do?

    Dito natin malalaman kung kanino ba ang SC, sa taongbayan ba o sa buwayangbayan.

    • speaksoftlylove

       What case? Umangal nga yong Supreme Court dahil pinakikialaman ni PNoy ang budget nila dahil may fiscal independence sila tapos ngayon gusto mong makialam sila sa Senado? Dream on. Yang Supreme Court matagal na naging Survey Court yan magmula ng umupo si PNoy sa trono niya, Supreme Court ka pa dyan. At huwag mong sisihin kung tatahimik yan dahil pinauso ni Serena ang Silence of the Lamb sa balwarte niya.

    A lot of Pinoys suffered during the recent calamities. It’s appalling and scandalous that Enrile would rather distribute those scarce people’s funds to his already ultra rich colleagues than help alleviate the sufferings of the people in the calamity stricken areas in Mindanao and Visayas. 

    However legal you view the distribution of funds, it cannot be denied that corruption and bribery is written all over it.  This aging unpunished tyrant simply wants to buy more time as senate president.

    Poor Pinoys, when will you be able to produce true statesmen to run the affairs of your government? Hope the odds will be in your favor in the next election.

    And they don’t see anything wrong with this old man’s behaviour? Delicadeza naman po sana.

    Sure, Enrile has the “right” to disitribute the fund — mainly because there are no rules against it — but one would have thought that a sense of decency would have stopped him. And the fact that Enrile distributed the fund arbitrarily and whimsically shows us that the old man has no compunction in using OUR money to advance his agenda. Kung bonus man yun, bakit hindi pare-pareho sa lahat ng senador. (Kahiya hiya pa din, pero at least walang personalan na naganap)

    Ginamit niya ang pera ng gobyerno nang naayon sa kanyang kapritso — corrupt.

    Oh my gee!!! Using P30M government fund to bribe fellow senators, no matter in what form is still a bribe and it is so dowright dis//gusting. And yet, previously, enrile has stated repeatedly that he doesn’t give a hoot if his fellow senators him remove or not. An adage once a thief is always a thief has been proven true and aptly applies on enrile. FYI, a thief is the brother of a liar.  

    Enrile does not care if there are millions of families having no food in their table, no roofs to cover the heads  and warmth the bodies at night and during rainy periods, children begging in the street for foods, etc, and so on and yet here he is, using his position to cover his b/u/t/t in anticipation of a possible removal, to fill the fully-satiated stomachs of fellow senators who have the power to unseat him as SP instead of diverting that funds to more deserving individuals.

    Enrile already in the twilight of his life has not changed at all. He is still the same enrile who has the mind of an enrile that ruled ML. No one can change him, not even the spectre of death that is hovering over his head for being too old.

    One would think and expect this old dog Enrile to set an exemplary example to his colleagues who are his juniors.

They are thumbing their noses to the masses;

    They are saying, effect, to these groups of people that they be damn*d:

    The typhoon victims
    The scavengers in Payatas
    The squatters living under bridges
    The little children begging motorists for alms at the risk of being run over by vehicles

    People reacted negatively to my earlier comment. So I guess I would have to rephrase my earlier remarks. Again, there was no malicious-intent on the part of the Senate President. It was taken from the Senate Fund, and would have ended up being spent on the Senate anyway if he opted not to give it as a bonus (note: for the Senate, not for the destitute like some here who like leeches think they should have benefited from it instead). You people can blabber all day about it being taxpayers money, but you’re merely making an issue out of nothing. The Senate, as with any other government agency (in the Philippines and abroad) spend millions for even the most mundane stuff. It’s part of their allocated budget (some of your taxes are allocated towards the different government agencies and they have no choice but to use it). Our good Senate President was merely being gracious towards his peers. Absolutely nothing wrong with what he did, and hence no corruption.

    Mabuhay ka Senator Enrile!

    • BruinBearDad

      What a brown noser!  It’s unconscionable because any DECENT politician could use that money for the people such as the victims for the recent typhoons.  Who can say unequivocably that this cannot be done?  If he can disburse this to people who are already loaded with taxpayer’s money, why cant they just stipulate to give it away? Mabuhay to one of the biggest crooks in the Philippines?  You are despicable.

      I don’t know where you get your knowledge of budgeting from.. but to let you know most government , the Philippines included operate on zero budget basis. That means if an allocated budget is unspent during a given budget period, that allocation is reverted back to the general fund and roll over to another allocation. In essence any smoothing process in order for any government agency to withhold such funds or allocation is unethical. I suggest that you read the handbook for Accountant’s Professional Ethics

While we’re at it, was there also whatchamacallit at the lower house and elsewhere, say, among the GOCCs?

No project list, no budget…budget releases with nothing to show for at end of budget cycle must make representative accountable.

IF these people have decency, they should return unused budget to the treasury. Budget should not be automatically become actual expenses else this what happens…distribute as bonus.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Kayo naman, senado lang ang nakikita ninyo. I have worked in the House of Representatives during the time of the late Speaker Mitra and in Cory’s government. Meron kaming mid year bonus, year end bonus, Speaker’s bonus, Christmas bonus, compensation for meritorious services, at ang natirang savings ay pinagpapartepartehan. Kaya January na may bonus pa. Kung meron ang empleyado lalo ng meron ang mambabatas. At kung meron ang House of Representatives ganun din ang Senado. Walang henerasyon ng House of Representatives at Senado ang nagbabalik ng savings sa kaban ng bayan mulat’s sapul pa. At higit sa lahat, kung meron ang buong Kongreso lalong lalo na ang Palasyo. Yang tatlong yan ay pinamumudmud ang savings, milyones nga lang yong sa mga opisyales. At kung hindi ninyo alam ito ay talagang matagal na kayong tulog. Yang mga bumabastos dito na nagtatrabaho dyan sa tatlong ahensya na binanggit ko ay numero unong plastic. Masaklap pero yan ang totoo. Swallow it with a grain of salt.

        Mas estupido ang komento mo. Lahat ng ahensya ng gobyerno isa lang ang bonus sa isang taon. Tawag dyan 13 month pay. Pero tanungin mo ang mga empleyado ng Palasyo at Kongreso kung ilang beses sila nagbubunos. Pagkatapos ng mid year bonus halos buwan buwan nagbobonus ang mga yan. At huwag kang singungaling unggoy dahil alam kong tauhan ka ng miscomm group.,

    This is graft and corruption to the highest degree. Arroyo always did like this by giving public money to bribe congressmen and senators.

    Excess public money should go back to the national treasury and not be used to feed crocodiles. COA should look into this and file graft and corruption charges to these law breakers.

  • geekborj

    Who else gave cash gifts last year, within the government.  They should also be listed here.

  • blainz

    That much taxpayer money could’ve been put to better use than playing millionaire Santa Claus to the Senate. Delicadeza is obviously not Enrile’s strong suit.

    I hope this seals Jack’s loss in the coming elections. Between this, Binay’s intimidation of Cebu police, Gwen’ kapit tuko act, and Erap’s reneging on the conditions of his pardon, one can easily see what kind of public servants to expect from UNA.

    If Sen. Pres. Enrile wanted to play Santa Claus, then it could have been better if he did it to the poor street children of Metro Manila. The senators don’t need such amount but the poor children whom Enrile professes to protect as per his pronouncements being “pro-life”.

    “There’s nothing irregular about it. Under the Constitution, the heads of constitutional offices like the Senate President are given the power to realign and utilize appropriations in the budget to other existing items,”

He gave it as a gift to the very hardworking people of the Senate (who mind you totally deserves this generous bonus). Yet that makes him a bad person somehow? What kind of logic/reasoning is that?

    EDIT: What he did isn’t illegal and is within his responsibilities/discretion as an elected government official. Kayo nalang mag Senate President (after you all become financially secure – which I highly doubt give your loser mentality).

What ever hard work or monumental achievement they’ve done, that is the call or required of their duty or responsibility…and their oath to serve! It is a different matter if its a “private” corporation and it gives generous bonuses to its hardworking managers or CEOs because these guys are there for the money. You want to hear some logic? I will use this logic: If I make these senators happy by giving them 1.6 million of the people’s money, these guys will like and be indebted to me. And I will use these “influence” to my benefit in the future. It is not my money anyway.
      But nevertheless, I respect your opinion, your right to it and freedom of speech. : )

    • lazy_dawg

      Fascinating, legal technicalities are generally called the law. We can’t ask people to obey laws which are vague and open to interpretation so laws are spelled out with great specificity. If by some reason the offense doesn’t fit the well defined meaning of the law, then it isn’t a crime.  Most politicians are lawyers. The government is designed, in effect, to be administered by attorneys. Thus I understand where your logic is coming from, Its not a crime as this practice is within the scope of their responsibility and can be used at their discretion_ What matters here is that it’s people’s money, and the government is not a private entity or a corporation so there ought not be any ‘bonuses’ and the like . There are areas in the country that extremely needs the funding, rehabilitate infrastructure, roads, bridges and the like _ and stop pretending that there are no other areas in the country that really needs the assistance to these ‘excess’, most especially the victims of the recent calamity in the Southern Philippines , Enrile’s crime, is the hypocrisy of the act and that of the hypocrisy of recipients for accepting the money ..  ( mga walang delikadesa )

    Philippines style, which is done right out in the open and is considered as

    So this is how government agencies, including the supposedly venerable Philippine Senate, provide extra moolah for incumbent officials: by dipping into the so-called “savings” – in the Senate’s case, the amount which should have been allocated for a 24th senator. So they have a ghost employee (the vacant Senate slot) on the payroll – ganon ka-simple! And no one among the incumbent senators is complaining, of course. Now how can they look into other government agencies’ profligate, prodigal waste of funds, specially those honoraria for meetings.

    What more can I say? Enrile has further unmasked himself as one of the most Machiavilian characters in the history of not just the Senate but of the entire country. An evil man, an evil man. Duplicitous, vindictive, selfish and arrogant.

    And as for the other Senators who accepted those enormous cash gifts, they are no better.

    And these snakes give all those comical justifications for accepting the cash. They do not deserve to be in that chamber a minute longer. They should resign. Despicables. They have very little value. We will save millions without these jerks in the Senate.

    Despicable dishonorables ! You do not even see the hungry kids in their shanties wishing, dreaming for just a little more than just pancit for their Christmas meal. You do not see the pain in their parents’ eyes because that is all they can give. No you cannot see these because all you see is Enrile’s cash gift for your own selves.

      You are just wasting your time my friend. Jack Enrile will easily win a senate seat. Not only because of name recall, but because his dad is one of the best public servants this country has ever seen. Johnny’s integrity cannot be questioned, and his anti-corruption stance never ceases to amaze me. 

      I am Pro-Enrile because I’ve seen up front how sympathetic he is towards the plight of the Filipino folk. You have no idea what he does behind the scenes in order to save our economy. And same goes for fellow senators Tito Sotto, Panfilo Lacson, Joker Arroyo and Pia Cayetano. The aforementioned have the most integrity (and compassion) in the Senate.

    bakit mga empleyado lang ba ng senado at senador ang mga anak ng diyos? senators are to serve the public and it is not the privelage of the public that they are senators… Bonuses of the employees should not be too extravagant. besides, the funds that are being utilized are the taxes paid by hard working filipinos. it is just and right to return it to the people it terms of efficient prorgrams that will benefit the people and not just the few. If there are a lot of surplus budget in the Senate, then slash off excess and re-approproptiate it to DOH and DEPED. Typhoon vicitims are lacking classrooms, and yet in the senate the problem is, some only got quarter a million as a bonus. for most of us, that is more than a years hardwork less TAXES.

    Walang kasalanan si Sen Enrile kung hindi si Juan/Juana Dela Cruzes. 

    Mantakin mong MARTIAL LAW administrator with a lot of questionable, unscrupulous  deeds/acts against the madlang pipol ay binoto at nanalo sa election. Ang masama pa nito hindi lang minsan nanalo kungdi multiple times pa. 

    Ano kaya ang iniisip ni Juan/Juana Dela Cruzes para iboto si Enrile? O baka naman si Juan/Juana ay may temporary insanity o baka naka-drugs…

    Ngayon, ang anak nya ang gustong pumalit sa kanya. I wouldn’t be surprised kung mananalo ito kasi madaling makalimot ang madlang pipol and not POLITICALLY MATURE to vote…

        ACCEPTED PRACTICE na ito–is it wrong? SUPER Mali. But it’s our fault kasi we are subtly/implicitly encouraging/condoning them to do this despicable act by our lackadaisical/devil may care (apathetic) attitude…FYI: Sa bayan namin, maraming humihingi ng tulong sa mayor, pati pampasahe inaasa kay Mayor. So, kanino o saan kukuha ng pera si Mayor–magkano lang ang “legal income” nito sa gobyerno. Karamihan sa mga mayor ng bansa bago umupo bilang alcalde, MIDDLE class ang status sa buhay…ngayon after few years bilang mayor, UPPER CLASS na ito–ay, loleng! Hindi ba kayo nagtataka na lumalaki ang DISCRETIONARY FUNDS ng mga government agencies dahil marami sa mga PINOY ay TAMAD at mahilig sa LIBRE–at ito ang (major major) dahilan kung kaya talamak ang POLITICAL DYNASTIES sa bansa.  PEACE…

    This is very repulsive!   Absolutely disgusting! Coming from a man with questionable background in during his Marcos years, giving away money of the people. Is he buying votes for his son Jackie Enrile? 

    I hope that the Bureau of Internal Revenue  would make sure that these are declared as bonuses on top of their income for taxation purposes and that  taxes are withheld at source.

    What a disgusting senator this Enrile is!  He was useless during Marcos’ elected term, and more useless during Marcos’ martial law years. And he was even disgustingly useless to the people he was supposed to honestly serve from the time Marcos was kicked out up until now, and with this gargantuan show generosity at the expense of the poor people of the Philippines.

    Absolutely Disgusting! Enrile should just retire and save the people of more misery with him in the senate. He has not done anything for the people but just enrich himself and his own family and friends at the expense of people’s present and future welfare.

    No more Enrile in politics!  No  to Jackie Enrile as a senator!

    Eto mga kabayan ang mukha ng UNA. Si Binay, binastos ang batas. Sinulsulan si Gwen na balewalaen ang constitutional suspension order, not to mention all his wealth stolen while mayor of Makati.  Si Enrile, pinamigay ang pera ng bayan sa mga kapwa magnanakaw, not mention being the architect of the infamous martial law. Si  Estrada, needless to say ay convicted plunderer.

    Kung ano ang puno siya din ang bunga. Napakatatanga naman natin kung iboboto pa natin ang mga UNA candidates lalong-lalo na ang mga anak ng mga hinayupak na mga ito.

    Mga kabayan, wala naman tayong pupuntahan. Kahit sino ang piliin nating sa UNA, LP, NPC and any major political party candidates mga magnanakaw pa rin.

    Let’s give ourselves one last chance at even just a glimmer of hope that change will come to our beloved Philippines. I propose to you all to vote blindly the newcomers or unknowns who can present good credentials and track records in their private lives. The logic here is, with the TRAPOS, the probability of them amending their ways is nil, zero, nada, wala, ziltch, zip. With the unknowns, we have chance that they are well meaning. If they end up being thieves anyway, what difference does it make? Also, it will take sometime for them to learn the ropes of corruption unlike TRAPOS, from day one, all actions are already geared towards enriching themselves. So, if the unknowns who win take 3 months to be corrupt, at least the government shall have saved 3 months of thievery.  Further, isn’t it fun to have a new group of thieves and charlatans in Congress?

    Please do this and try campaigning in the slum and rural areas. People here are the most gullible and ignorant. Sad to say that they are the ones who are practically electing these fck..ng senatongs and tonggressmen.

    This time around, I won’t beg for the Chinese to NUKE us. There may still be hope if we succeed in junking all these trapos in May.

    REMEMBER POWER OF THE VOTES!!!!! THAT’S THE ONLY POWER WE HAVE OVER POLITICIANS. LET’S USE IT VERY WISELY.

    There’s no question to the powers of the senate president as well as to the giving of gifts in terms of cash, but to the extent of a huge money (1.6M) is something that tantamount to abuse of power. These senators already enriched themselves while they are in their position yet they are the ones given with huge amount just as Christmas gifts. They could give it to people who are more needy like those victims of calamities or to those who hardly eat 3 times a day. Grabe naman to si Enrille,

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    Now you can see how corrupted the mind of politicians really are. Corruption is not only in the form of taking; it could also be in the form of giving. The one being a manifest of greed and the other being a manifest of impishness. It just shows how Enrile would go so far to achieve his vindictive and selfish goals.

    30 million could have gone a long long way had it been shared with those who needed it most. But the beloved Senators who received the gifts chose to be greedy as well.

    No politician in the Philippines is decent and no politician in the Philippines truly serves in the interest of the people.

    To the hypocrites posting here I have a question for you all. Who told you that the Senators aren’t lending a hand to the typhoon victims? Just because the media failed to cover it, doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. You know why the lack of media coverage? Because of the public’s perception. Pag tumulong, sasabihin ng kararamihan, “pakitang tao lang”, that the corrupt politicians are just building up their public image. So why would the media (or the politicians themselves) bother? I’m 100% certain na karamihan dito na puna ng puna hindi naman tumulong sa mga nasalanta. May pambili ng mga gadgets (kahit naghihirap na), pero hindi handa tumulong sa nangangailangan. You people are just as greedy as the corrupt politicians (Johnny isn’t one of the corrupt) that you continue to bash. Do something productive with your time. 

    And yes I’m defending the good senator because I’ve seen and witnessed up close his sympathy for the masses.  Di gaya ng mga tao dito na puro lang salita, wala naman ginagawa pra sa kapwa nila.

      Ang tanong James Canono, bakit di nila naisip ipamigay na lang sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo ang pera?  Pwede na siguro yung pera ipamahagi sa bawat farmer to start a modest livelihood for a startup.  Kasi bahay at kabuhayan nawala sa isang iglap.  Pera ng bayan yan.  Di pera ni Enrile.  Mayayaman na sila.  And don’t judge evrybody here posting comments.  You don’t know the individual position of everyone.  Wag ka pong balat sibuyas.  Play cool, mate! It’s okay if magpakadakila ka sa mga enrile. Buhay mo yan. Ang pinag-uusapan dito buhay ng kaawa-awang mga kababayan natin. Sa panahon ni Marcos, cronies raped Mindanao Logging operations are just here and there. Tapos walang replanting. Kaya binaha kami sa Mindanao!

        Fact is, the Senators who received these bonuses would be using the money to fund their projects. As I said, it just won’t make the rounds in the media because such effort is futile. Sarado na pagiisip ng mga tao na lahat ng politician corrupt. 

        Most politicians are already wealthy reason they got elected to their respective positions. It’s almost impossible to be elected to a higher office if wala kang pera. Fact is, whatever money they make while in office goes back to the people. People just fail to acknowledge that.

    Sa isang bayan tulad ng Pilipinas na nasa kategorya pa rin ng isang third world country, kung pagbabatayan ang napakaraming milyung-milyong mahihirap, labis-labis at laganap na kakulangan sa maaayos o world-class na infrastructure, pagiging isang agricultural at hindi isang industrial country, pagkakaroon ng napakaraming colonies ng informal settlers; napakataas na percentage ng unemployment, at marami pang iba, ang ginawang pagbibigay ni Enrile ng 1.6 milyong piso na pamasko sa mga senador ay lubhang scandalous and inappropriate. Isa pa, the money was not his to give away. Pera iyon ng gobyerno na hindi nagamit, kaya dapat ay ibalik sa National Treasury. Galing sa taxes na nakolekta ng BIR ang milyung-milyong pera na iyon. Wala siyang karapatang ipang -Christmas gift iyon sa mga senators at empleyado ng Senado.

    Grave abuse of power ang ginawa niya at puwede siyang ma-impeach dahil dito.Kung ipinantulong pa niya sa mga biktima ng bagyong Pablio ang pondo ay mabibigyan pa ng katwiran ang ginawa niya dahil para ito sa kapakanan ng mga taong bayan na siyang dapat pagsilbihan at tulungan ng Senado at siyang dapat makinabang. Pero mga milyonaryo na ang mga senador at napakaraming milyun-milyong pork barrel na ang tinatanggap ng mga ito bukod sa kanilang naglalakihang mga suweldo, allowances, at napakarami pang ibang benipisyo bukod sa ibinabayad ng gobyerno sa suweldo at mga benipisyo ng kani-kanilang staff at security sa senado. Bakit kailangan pa silang bigyan ng Christmas bonus mula sa pera ng bayan? Ano ba ang nagawa nila para sa bayan? Naghihirap pa rin ang Pilipinas. Sa mga senador na iyan, tanging si Senador Franklin Drilon lamang ang alam mong ginagasta ang pera sa kapakanan ng bayan. Ang pork barrel niya ay lalong nagpapaganda at nagpapaunlad sa Iloilo at iba pang mga lugar sa bansa. Nakita ko sa YouTube ang improvements na nagawa niya sa Iloilo.Saan dinadala ng ibang mga senador ang pork barrel nila? Para makatipid ay dapat nang ibalik sa labindalawa ang mga senador. Sa Estados Unidos na 50 ang states ay 2 senators lang ang allowed bawat state, kayat 100 lang ang kabuuang bilang ng kanilang mga senador. Ang Pilipinas na more or less ay same size lamang ng California ay 24 ang senators.

  • im_not_convinced

    the title of the story is misleading. why call it a christmas gift if it is really an MOOE based on the redistribution of the senate budget intended for a 24th senator? gives it a negative connotation in light of the amount. 

    It is an action by Enrile as the Senate President, not from his personal account (though i believe giving the 4 senators only 250k speaks of spite the way Pnoy witholds political opponents pork barrel allocation) If the senators pocket the amount then that is on their head, but if they use it for operating expense of their staff then there is nothing wrong with it.

    another demolition piece against the opponents of the Liberal Party. 

    • glenn padilla

      “gives it a negative connotation…” tanong lang po my something positive po ba sa ginawa ni manong?

      • im_not_convinced

        If it is a regular disbursement function, it should not even be news worthy (except for the fact that he spitefully reduced the allotment for the 4 senators, that although is his prerogative as Senate President, shows of being vindictive).

        title would have been better as “Enrile redistributes Pnoy’s senator budget, stiffs opponents”

        but it seems the editor’s goal is to paint something even more sinister and destroy his reputation. especially if you just see the title and get to read just the first few paragraphs.

        Kindly recall that it is his group that sealed the impeachment of Corona and his handling of the case was impartial.

  • PH2011

    ONCE again, JPE exposed his true
    color and some government agencies misdeed.

    COA should be transparent in all
    government transactions.  Obviously, there’s
    a lot of government savings that are re-aligned to personnel bonuses. IN FACT,
    instead of returning the money to government treasury, they opted to re-aligned
    the money (savings) to bonuses.

    Congress, GOCC’s/GFI’s in particular
    had the better leeway of doing this. Kaya dehado ang mga nasa Department level.

    The argument is clear. Why do the
    government head return the money to government coffers if they can spend the money
    for bonuses? Another thing, how can they justify additional budget for the next
    year appropriations? IN FACT, government agencies who return savings to government
    coffers, instead of being rewarded, the agencies appropriation risk to be slashed
    on the next year budget for obvious reason that they were not able to consummate
    their previous appropriations.

    This kind of mindset worsens the
    problems and unequal distribution of salaries and perks among government workers.
    It was earlier reported that a DOST/PAGASA forecaster failed to report due to
    lack of transportation allowances while the other agencies ( Congress, GOCC’s
    &GFI’s) has a lot of excesses.

    Legislators can file a bill/law on
    this perplexities, but most of our legislators are branded not to a file a bill
    detrimental to themselves or to their colleagues in congress ( i.e. Political
    Dynasties Law, Transparency Law etc)

    On this particular case, the
    aggrieved 4 senators should file a bill. Let’s proposed that only a certain
    percentage personnel derived from their savings goes to the agencies personnel  bonuses..

    A 70%-30% sharing in favor of the government
    is a good proposal. Tirhan nyo naman ang gobyerno or better for immediate
    re-alignment of  savings to the destroyed
    government infrastructures (schools, evacuation Buildings etc) in the aftermath
    of various calamities.

    That’s win-win situation.

    certain senators and their staffs happy while over a million homeless
    Filipinos suffer in hunger and disease in Mindanao is totally unconscionable.

    The act simply shows that the
    politicians never cared for those that elected them.

    If you just know how to read the lines what his ulterior motive. As the saying goes in anything that you do there is a reason that need to reckon with.

    This is telling the Senators: He wants still the position as Senate President after all.

    I think filipino people knows how his mind machination operates.

    If I were Mr. Senate President Enrile – I would give that money to the poor.

    You know what those Senators don’t need the money – they have a lot of them too.

    However if I were those Senators who receive the money I would donate them to the poor people of the Philippines especially those affected area that was hit by the Pablo and other affected areas.

    After all this is not his own personal money – It’s people money, wow !

    Sa mga senatongs na tumanggap ng 1.6M, lalo na yung nagsasabi na normal practice lang sa senate ang “cash gift” ni Enrile eh talagang super kapal ng pagmumukha nyo. Mga wala kayong delicadeza mga tinamaan kayo ng lintek.

    None of them refused or returned his or her share.
    The culture of political patronage is alive in Congress and enjoying more support from the greedy and conscience-less legislators.
    Can an overhaul be possible? 
    Really disgusting and disappointing to learn about common practices and collusion among senators to distribute unspent budgeted funds for themselves.
    I wonder which ones of the senatorial candidates this year’s elections can pass the test of integrity and honesty???

  • http://twitter.com/judefawley Jude Fawley

    The title of the article is misleading. There was no gift given to the senators by Enrile. It was the excess fund for the senate that was shared by several senators to be used for whatever public project they have. The problem is that there is unequal distribution of the money. Bakit hindi pantay ang share.

    I think that there should be a committee that will take a look at the expenses of the funds allocated for the senators. It’s time that the public see in details on how our senators spend their pork barrel. There must be transparency. The public must feel comfortable that that 1.6 million pesos will be spent for the general good of the Filipino people.

  • symonwho

    It seems that the usual practice in government is to bloat the budget, use the excess as savings for distribution to personnel. So happy lahat sila except the poor Pinoys.

    The senators have no right with the unused funds of Sen Noynoy since these are not per se savings. Savings are monies left because of better management and efficiency in doing the same mission  or service.These should be returned or at best used for calamities.

Nakakahiya. kung traditional practice ito, dapat matagal nang binago iyan. I could only imagine how much Enrile kept for himself. This shows how he spends his allotted government budget. Dapat mga kababayan, gumawa tayo ng hakbang para masugpo ang katiwalian sa ating bayan. saan magsisimula? sa sarili… pero ano ang next step?

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL, EXCESSIVE AND EXTRAVAGANT.

    “Generally, under the expressed or implied provisions of the Constitution, public funds may be used only for public purposes” (G.R. No. L-10405 -12/29/60)

    Sec. 33 of PD 1445 or the Auditing Code of the Philippines provides “prevention of irregular, unnecessary, excessive, or extravagant expenditures or uses of government funds or property”

    The xmas extra bonus doled out by enrile to 18 preferred senators at P1.6M and only P250K to 4 gutsy but  disfavored senators belong to public funds and covered by government check & balance measures to prevent wastage of much-needed public funds that could otherwise be used for typhoon Pablo victims, and the like.

    National government teachers/personnel received extra bonus of only P5K each while the distinguished(?) senators with P200M porks and other perks received excessive benefits, compliments of enrile who has absolute control of senate funds. 

    Enrile must justify his action of using public funds for excessive bonuses of senators ostensibly to enhance his retention as senate president and outwardly to advance the chance for election of his son jackie (alfie) during the critical campaign period.  

  • alner

    It maybe legal but for me, it is immoral. If it is a savings from a vacated position, they can realign that for other purposes like schools, repair of roads, bridges, etc. Giving away as bonus is too much shocking to the mind. If it is 50,000 it may still be alright since employees deserve to have bonus too. For God’s sake Senators, it is unfair to the Filipino Masses…

  • Benito Juarez

    Almost 30 million pesos could’ve built hundreds of classrooms for the downtrodden. Mr. Enrile, you remained the same – a clever monkey who tricked a wily fox. Three weeks ago, you talked as if your lips were full of honey but many knew you kept daggers in your belly. During martial law, I was too young to forget and not too old to remember now the thousands of parents yearning to see the graves of their lost children. These are the parents you forced to bury their sons and daughters in to their hearts. For some, they thought you’d redeemed your tainted name but the grieving souls see your dirty hands washed clean by the miscreants in your barn.

    What a way to show the Filipinos by these politicians that, really they don’t have decencies or any regards to the welfare of the citizens they are serving.  This “old geezer” (Enrile) who could have used a better judgement on where the money could be better use.    What about the victims of the typhoon(s) that have hit the country.  Or donate them to Philippine Red Cross who could use the money in more useful way.  Or other better purposes which I am sure these politicians has more better ideas which charitable entities in need of some help.  No….”the old geezer” must have already lost some of his faculties to think intelligently.   And besides, it’s not Enrile’s money, so what has he got lose if he donate that amount of money to the mentioned purposes.   I thought this was more of political bribery and that he was more than happy to give the money to his political colleague of which I am sure they don’t really need because they already have their own “pork barrel” that they enjoyed every year.   Inconsiderate and selfishness is what I thought of this action of Enrile.  And to these recipient of these very generous gifts, I hope they refuse them and just tell Enrile to just donate them to Filipinos who could better use of that money.  What about the “poorest of the poor”. I am sure these politicians can easily find and recognize them.  Just go to the slum areas of Manila and other poor areas of the country.   Be a good Samaritan for once………for pete sake!!!!

This amount was given to the senate body. 

    Until, there’s a reasonable, convincing  reason under the prevailing laws of the senate and the Government, Then, this amount must be put on hold. But, I doubt, it?..Now, the people again was the victim of this games by this suppose lawmakers. Election time is nearing so, thats one recourse the people had to take, again if there’s no games being played on the ballots…The people of the Philippines has more at stake in this Government…but only as a receiving end of this games being played to them?…What a sad state?…

    Ok, im there. It’s up to Enrile to realign this “excess budget” (not saving). I will also stretch so far and give Enrile the benefit of the doubt that he believes the senators will use this for “public purpose” e.g. distributing goods to poor people in their respective areas as christmas gifts. This i can accept. But pocket it! Enrile should have distributed this before christmas and require liquidation. On the part of the senators, a little shame lang naman ang hinihingi namin. Pera namin yan. And you’re not poor people din naman. Barya lang sa inyo yan at talagang binubulsa pa.

    It’s very very sad. millions of filipinos dont have even money to buy foods for noche buena and media noche last christmas and new year. millions of filipinos cannot eat atleast 3 times a day.
    look to our senators and congressmen, they are very greedy. they received millions for their own good but most filipinos are suffering from poverty.

    Kawawa mga filipinos only the politicians enjoying the peoples tax money na dapat inilaan nila para sa needs like schools, books at napakarami pa. sila lang ang nakikinabang.

    Given that what Enrile did was an “accepted practice” in the Senate. Given that what Enrile did wasn’t “irregular” and not against the law. These funds belongs to JUAN DELA CRUZ thus a proper accounting should be done where it was spent.

    Does anybody actually believe that those funds will be used as part of “miscellaneous expenses” in performing their duty as senators? How many actually believe those are nothing but thinly veiled Christmas bonuses?

    Tapos na ang CY2012 at hindi na angkop na tawagin itong MOOE. Ang anumang savings or unused budget ayon sa Final Trial Balance CY2012 ng anumang sangay ng National Govt ay
    nararapat lamang na ibalik sa Bureau of Treasury (exempted ba ang Senate sa EO338?)

     

    Maliwanag na ito ay isang bribery in the offing gamit ang buwis ng bayan.  Kung ituturing ito ng mga senado na “gift” then malabo ng matanggal o mapalitan ang Senate President — yun ang spirit ng “exchange gift”.

    Panawagan sa mga Hudas — pls magsi-Hudas kayo!  Gawin niyo ang ginawa ni Judas, nagsisi, ibinalik ang 30 silver coins — at nagbigti!

  • Ros Feliciano

     

    My friends, there is nothing to feel unpleasant
    about this GIFT coming from the remnant of the Martial Law era; do we? If yes,
    why should we feel dreadful? Well, is it because that it is possible the money
    did not come from his salary as ALL Filipinos know that those behind the
    Martial Law era were choked with money came from the nation treasury and
    coconut farmers? If this is such an insinuation, or we may say allusion, then why
    cases against the Marcos family are still in court and appears to be difficult to
    judge as blameworthy or innocent? But don’t misunderstand why this sad part of
    our history is being put in front of a…l…l of us. Just think of this, that
    huge amount of money as Christmas gifts to people who are already well-of are
    supposed to be gifted to those people who cook in the streets, sleep in the
    streets, die in the streets as they dwell in the streets so they can eat three
    times a day. So we have to feel contented because this is also what the holy
    people who represent God on earth enjoy to watch as they say it is good for the
    nation to have huge population that they could rather see this kind of
    situation instead of helping the government uplifts the living condition of the
    marginalized Filipinos. But the good things our government is doing NOW in
    terms of going after the corrupt government officials of the past and possibly
    concurrently with those who are still clinging in powers without let-up is
    giving us hope that our nation is in fact has hope for the generation to come;
    children who are not born yet.

    Nakita nyo na ba kung anung klaseng tao si Enrile?
    Inuuna pa nya ang pamimigay ng pera sa mga senador kaysa mamigay ng tulong sa mga biktima ng bagyo!

    UNA sa Corrupt!
    UNA sa katiwalian!
    UNA sa pang aabuso!
    UNA sa mga TRAPO!

    Let’s vote wisely! Huwag natin iboto ang mga TRAPO!

      Bakit UNA lang nakita mo? Di ba tumanggap din mga SENTAONGS coming from LP?

      I still have to hear Porky Pig Drilon and Mr. Noted Pangilinan commenting on the issue and what did they do with their 1.6M share, no matter how loose change is the amount to them.

      Under the leadership of PNOY, I think we have the MOST CORRUPT senate in Philippine history.

    nothing irregular? didn’t the senate criticize severely govt agencies and corporations which distributed such ‘savings’ in the same manner? didn’t pag-asa employees had to fight for their share of the savings in their office when it was stopped by the budget dept? joker, miriam, alan, et al didn’t find anything wrong with this?

    Why will you prepare a budget for 24 senators when you know that there are only 23?
    Then, you will declare savings for unspent budget intended for the 24th senator?
    Isn’t it anomalous?

    Are they doing the same thing in the lower house?

    Only in the Philippines!!!!

    Nagbigay ng bonus para hindi matanggal as senate president???

    Sabi ni Lacson P300k lang ang kanyang tinanggap at hindi P1.6M.
    Mukhang may kumita???

    Sana lahat ng mga tumanggap ay donate sa mga nasalanta ng Bagyong Pablo.

  • patawad

    Walang masasabi diyan si Trillanes dahil 250 thousand naman pala sa kanya.  Ano masasabi ninyo sa nagpapanggap na malinis na dating sundalo.  Bakit wala tayong  narinig sa kanya na mga pandarambong sa gobyerno ngayon, samantalang ang lakas ng sigaw niya sa corruption ni Gloria nuon. Ang dali naman niyang nakain ng corrupt na sistema!  Ano rin kaya masasabi ni Ms Tordesillas kay Sonny boy Tril?

    BAD EXAMPLE ANG SENATE. SAMANTALANG BUDGETED PARA SA ADDIOTNAL EMPLOYEES YAN, TAPOS HINDI I SILA NAGHIRE NG ADDITIONAL EMPLOYEES PARA MAY SASABIHING SAVINGS NA HAHATIIN AT THE END OF THE YEAR. GAWIN DIN NG SUPREME COURT AT IBANG AHENSIYA NG PAMAHALAAN YAN KAYA. BULOK NA SISTEMA YAN. ANG DAPAT, KUNG PARA SA ADDITIONAL EMPLOYEES O EQUIPMENT ANG PERA NA YAN, PAG HINDI NAGAMIT AY ISAULI SA TREASURY. THUMBS DOWN TO ENRILE, THUMBS DOWN TO THE SENATE OF THE PHILIPPINES!!!

    Mga BOBO! Yung budget na yan e allocated for the senate! It will be unconstitutional kung idodonate nila yan sa mga Typhoon Victims! It will be morally acceptable kung ibibigay na lang sa mga poor people yung budget pero, strictly speaking, it is unlawful to distribute money outside its purpose! At ang purpose ng money na to e for the Senate’s use! Mga ignorante! 
    Saka he’s just allocating the budget! Ba’t di nyo rin sisihin yung mga tumanggap?! I’m no anti-PNoy pero the way you guys think are just ridiculous. All your arguments are driven by emotions alone. Wala nga kayong kaalam alam sa process na ginagawa para maallocate yang budget na yan. Mga Pro-PNoy dyan ginagamit lang ang opportunity na to para i-mislead kayo. BOBO.

        It will be unconstitutional kung idodonate nila yan sa charity o kung ano pa man. It will be morally acceptable kung ibibigay na lang sa mga nangangailangan ung budget pero, strictly speaking, it is unlawful to distribute money outside its purpose. Kahit sabihin mong pera natin yan, napagdesisyonan yan ng congress o kung ano mang budget committee na ilaan yang perang yan para sa senate at para sa senate lamang.

  • iduniq

    1.6 million pesos is I think is not too big a bonus considering the high position level, the regular salary amount and the amount of work done on this year.  But that bonus comes from the people not from the senate president so each senator should receive equal or maybe commensurate to the amount of work done by each senator (which is difficult to access). Also it should have been made known to the public before it was given.
