Aquino: Evidence vs Gwen Garcia ‘so clear’

By , |


President Benigno Aquino on Wednesday said he is standing by his office’s decision to suspend Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia, reiterating that it was done regardless of political affiliation and that Garcia’s violation of the law was clear.

“I am sorry, the evidence is so clear (against Garcia),” said Mr. Aquino.

The President also dismissed talk of politics playing a key role in the investigation for illegal gambling and plunder of Pangasinan Gov. Amado Espino.

Mr. Aquino said Espino has been tagged by a “credible” witness.

In both cases, the President said it was his duty to enforce the laws as the top executive of the land.

At the Department of Interior and Local Government, Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas said Garcia, who is holed up in her office at the Cebu provincial capitol, may stay there for as long as she wants since there are no plans to bodily remove her.

Roxas, whose office enforced the suspension order against Garcia, said the provincial government, under acting Gov. Agnes Magpale, is functioning anyway despite Garcia’s refusal to leave the governor’s office.

The President and Roxas made the statements as hundreds of supporters of Garcia were mobilized to gather at a prayer rally in the provincial capitol to support the suspended governor’s bid to remain in office.

The prayer rally organized by the Garcia camp was matched by Mass organized on the other hand by the camp of Magpale, the acting governor.

Those who attended the rally are mostly members of Garcia’s One Cebu Party. They wore red shirts and carried placards with the words “Stand Up Cebu.”

The suspended governor was present, also wearing a red shirt. The rest of the Garcia clan were there, too.

But frustration rained on the rally as the Sandiganbayan, the antigraft court, junked the suspended governor’s plea to lift a hold departure order against her for another case, this one involving the purchase of a lot by the provincial government that was mostly under water.

Talking to reporters in Camp Crame, Roxas said Garcia’s claim that there was a plan to drag her out of the capitol was fiction. “Let’s just let her make her own speculation,” said Roxas.

“Why do we have to bodily (move her out)? What else is there to do when the services are being provided by the provincial government?” he said.

“As long as the government services are not hampered, if some people want to stay in their offices, then that’s their right,” said Roxas.

In an ambush interview in Malacañang, Mr. Aquino said there was no politics involved in either Garcia’s or Espino’s case.

“We are blind as to party affiliation,” the President said.

“The reverse is to do nothing, and to be accused of not fulfilling our oath to faithfully execute all laws of the land,” he said, adding: “It just so happened that they are not our party mates.”

On Garcia’s case, the President said what the suspended governor did was obviously a violation of the law.

He said the investigation of Garcia started under the late Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo and “passed through a very long process before it was brought to the Office of the President.”

Garcia had been charged with and found guilty by the Office of the President of usurping the authority of the late Vice Gov. Gregorio Sanchez, whose budget for hiring personnel had been cut off by Garcia until his death.

After Sanchez’s death, the budget for personnel of the vice governor’s office was restored by Garcia.

“I think it has clearly been established that when the vice governor, who was not her ally, died she restored the budget,” said Mr. Aquino.

“So removing the budget was really intentional,” the President said.

The suspension order was signed on Dec. 17 by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, who belongs to a Palace faction said to be at odds with Roxas. With Carmel Loise Matus and Jhunnex Napallacan, Inquirer Visayas

      I travel to Ayala Business Park from Guadalupe Cebu every working day and Garcia’s supporters look more like hundreds. You should try asking them why they are there as there are first hand reports that cash will be given to those that join the Garcia’s on the rally.

      50 for Magpale? Someone must be blind… even on TV it’s clearly more than a few hundred if you know how to count.

    What is more clear than the incoming election, that Cebu is vote rich and Garcia is not LP party mate but an opposition as Cebu is used to be.

      • ARIKUTIK

        I respect your beliefs but midnight appointment is detestable that’s why corona was kicked out even only through mischievous SALN charge. See, the citizens hates midnight appointment.

      • ARIKUTIK

        My opinion is based on facts. Example > Garcia is democratically elected by Cebuanos. That fact alone is enough evidence that Garcia has the constitutional right to govern Cebu. Fact #2 election is coming to town and Penoy LP is trembling to the bones to be defeated in Cebu as testified by imposition of Midnight Suspension. What is the need to suspend Garcia when she is about to vacate her post in few months time. The remaining few months of her term has no bearing on the cooked up ADMINISTRATIVE case lodge againts her because the case will last for a year or so before a verdict can be handed if she is innocent. Penoy and his LP ilks wants to swindle the Cebuanos through a dictator MIDNIGHT SUSPENSION.

        The Midnight suspension of Garcia is glaring testimony that Boy AB and LP mate Roxas are corrupt. They want to win an election through Dictatorship of suspending a governor choosen by Cebuanos. President Penoy is corrupt dictator.

    Since when did Noy2 become an expert on evidence? Now he is not only the executioner but also the judge. He should let Roxas do his job and he should concentrate on more national pressing matters like poor economic performance, peace and order, unemployment and corruption. If every time something happens, again, like the Atimonan shootout, he poke his nose, he is just displaying his lack of prioritization and his failure to distinguish what is important for the nation. He should let the people delegated to do their jobs (he put them there) do them without him meddling or expressing opinions until things gets done. For once Mr. President, act presidential.

        I don’t know what thought process you have or what your educational background is. I suggest you re-read my comments but I will make it easier for you. I am talking of evidence, evidence my “learned” friend. Only the trier of facts ( in the PHL, that is the judge) who can determine if an evidence is really an evidence . . .admissible evidence. Now, do tell me, is Noy2 a judge? Even if he is the President, he is in no position to determine what is an evidence, admissible evidence. He can make an opinion about the investigation or evidence in the investigation but he cannot categorically state, for there is no judicial basis for it that ” . . .the evidence is so clear”. So be smart and stop comparing apples and oranges. Naiintidihan mo?

      • alpine11

        Wala ata akong nabasa na sinabi ni Pnoy na expert sya sa mga ebidensya. Ikaw lang ata. Tanong kita rjsome, what will you do if you were given a report that your staff is doing a thing that you know is unacceptable to you and to its people?

      • rjsome

        It is not a question of acceptability that we are talking about here being that whether it is acceptable to me or not is irrelevant. The criteria should be whether a recommended action is legally right and can muster against constitutional challenges on the individual rights of people or office holders, including their right to due process.Was a fair investigation conducted affording all the opportunities to, in this case, Gwen Garcia, to present her side? Or was the investigation “ex-parte”.Human decency and justice requires it to be accorded more so to an elected person like Garcia.

         It is the power of the Office of the President through the DILG to try, study and decide on administrative cases like that of gwen garcia under the Local Government Code… Hindi lang judge ang nagdedetermine ng mga evidences, pati ang Office of the President has the power under the law to decide based on evidences presented sa mga administrative cases. Kaya wag mo sabihin na wala sya karapatan mag-weigh ng evidence. Magbabasa-basa din ng mga batas, wag maging ignorante sa batas!

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/VBN5IUGKHSGIHDV5L6QVG2KBTI Leop233

        Regardless of what you say, PNoy has the right to suspend whoever he wants if his office has compelling evidence.  Ang gusto mo ata dumaan sa korte. Matagal nang iniimbistigahan yang si Gwen.  Nakalagay naman diba?    Alam mo ba ang DILG?

        Eto ang Powers and functions ng DILG:
        Powers & Functions
        Assist the President in the exercise of general supervision over local governments;Advise the President in the promulgation of policies, rules, regulations and other issuances on the general supervision over local governments and on public order and safety;Establish and prescribe rules, regulations and other issuances implementing laws on public order and safety, the general supervision over local governments and the promotion of local autonomy and community empowerment and monitor compliance thereof;Provide assistance towards legislation regarding local governments, law enforcement and public safety; 
        Establish and prescribe plans, policies, programs and projects to promote peace and order, ensure public safety and further strengthen the administrative, technical and fiscal capabilities of local government offices and personnel;Formulate plans, policies and programs which will meet local emergencies arising from natural and man-made disasters; 
        Establish a system of coordination and cooperation among the citizenry, local executives and the Department, to ensure effective and efficient delivery of basic services to the public;Organize, train and equip primarily for the performance of police functions, a police force that is national in scope and civilian in character.

      • rjsome

        Should I be impressed with this litany of powers and fuctions of DILG? Not until they can make a dent to the numerous unsolved murders (in the thousands) and the killings of journalist (the PHL is No.2 in this category) and substantially make affirmative steps (results) in eradicating jueteng, I am, like other Pinoys skeptical of what they can do.

      • 14nono29

        you are all talking not to express but to impress. but the more you do so, the more it shows that you have limited understanding of the legal tenets. now as to the suspension , the president is, i suppose, well within his powers to do so. suspension from office is not a penalty in the sense that a penalty is meted out by a court of law. if it is the court of law, in this case of gov. garcia, it is possible that she will be acquitted or penalized, if there is a criminal case filed. in other words, the suspension ordered by the president is very different and disparate from a (possible future) penalty that may ordered by a court of law. the suspension order by the president may be viewed as political or otherwise, but still a lawful order. being so, a law abiding citizen (which the governor must be, being an elective official), must obey. she is entitled to question the order in a court of law, which she availed of. due process has been done. 

      • rjsome

        It seems to appear to me that you are the one with limited understanding. We were talking about evidence, and here you are pompously talking of what . .”legal tenets”. I wonder if you can explain what you mean by that? Instead of doing so, you started talking about suspension. In all the preceding discussions, nobody was talking about suspension but in trying futilely to be impressive and knowledgeable, you digressed to that, suggesting that somewhat you seem to have an unconcentrated, illogical and twisted dissertation and reasoning.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/MQ5WGQ3X24POCR4Z3D2NDBUXC4 Franz Zel

         FYI, ang DILG has the power to investigate and to endorse verdict on administrative cases to the president and the president is a judge on administrative cases sya magsasabi kung tama o mali yung iendorse na verdict ng DILG…

      • rjsome

        You got it my friend. You said the magic word “verdict” And who made that decision? In the case of Garcia, it was Robredo (not Noy2). Making a decision on administrative cases don’t need the approval of  the President. Now in terms of the execution of the recommendations (recommended actions), then they have to have the approval (not in evaluating evidence) of the Executive Department, the highest position, that of the President. Are you cleared up now?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/MQ5WGQ3X24POCR4Z3D2NDBUXC4 Franz Zel

        DILG makes the decision, then the president will approve/disapprove the decision for execution based also on the merits and evidences of the case hindi lang sya basta pumipirma pinag-aaralan nya rin yung kaso kasi sya pa rin ang mananagot kapag may mali, so nagjujudge pa rin sya. FYI also, DILG is directly under the power of the president, so the president has the power to approve/disapprove decisions, recommendations, resolutions, orders of any executive branch at pwede rin nyang panghimasukan ang alinmang investigations at decisions, kaya mali yung sinasabi mong “Making a decision on administrative cases don’t need the approval of  the President” dahil lahat ay under nya. For this case, the PRESIDENT is technically the HEAD of DILG and Robredo (now Roxas) is just the SECRETARY… Study the hierarchical structure of the government, and please study basic laws as well as the powers of the president and the role of the executive branches of the government before you make any statement.

      • rjsome

        I think you are a bit confuse between what is morally right vis-a-vis legally wrong. In bringing you up as a good and upright citizen, you mother did not based her decision from evidencebut by inculcating in you  the simple observation of human dignity, honesty, observation of social decorum, and respect of your  fellow person

    • Cherry_Bee

      The order of the DILG and the evidence it bases the order on is legally the business of the President. Roxas, as Cabinet Secretary, is the alter-ego of the President. In the end, it’s all the President’s job since all executive functions are vested in the Presidency under the Constitution. The President only relies on the “recommendations” of his cabinet… Pwede nga niya i-disregard/reverse ang recommendations ng gabinete if his reading of the evidence is contrary to that of his subordinates. Kaya ginagawa niya ang trabaho niya kasi yung kapangyarihan ng presidente ay galing mismo sa saligang-batas at dine-delegate lamang sa mga departments. So if he chooses to accept the recommendation of his Cabinet and supports its decision, it is like a decision coming from the President himself.

    Gwen never confronts, questions or cite evidences that would refute the original issue that lead to her getting suspended. Instead, she dwells on technicalities and turn the scenario political. You know why? Because clearly she is guilty!

    No Garcia and UNA for 2013.

  • JohnDoeGB

    Hindi maitatangi na biased yung suspension at isang panggigipit. Ang hindi makakita nun ay nagbubulag-bulagan at nagbibingi-bingihan lang. Kung gusto nyo ng pagbabago maging neutral naman kayo. Napakasubjective nung penalty. Yung kaalyado ni PNoy na mayor na nagthreaten ng broadcaster na nakunan pa ng video eh 1 month lang ang suspension samantalang kay Garcia 6 months itinaon pa talaga sa campaign/election period na ang palagay na rason ni Garcia sa pagdeallocate ng pundo ng Vice Gov eh kagaya din naman sa rason ni PNoy na hindi pag-allocate at pagsupporta sa hindi nya kaalyado. Waaaaah! Double standard!

Paano na yung may sakit/namatayan/nasalanta na napangakuan ng tulong? Kung ang rason ni PNoy ay hindi sila pinagkatiwalaan hindi ba pwede gawin ng iba ang ganon?

    If the Cebu Provincial capitol
    normally function  under the Vice-Governor,

    At the moment, she’s powerless, specially
    if her signatures will be no longer recognized/honored by the Banks, DILG-Law Enforcers,
    and all lined government agencies.

    It’s a useless struggle. Anyway, the
    final verdict will be from the people of Cebu, come election time. Dehado nga
    lang pag hindi ikaw ang incumbent na nakaupo during election.

    I remember she’s very powerful during GMA era.Well, ganun talaga -weather-weather

    Gov. Garcia is not as well-liked as governor in Cebu as she would like all to believe, she narrowly won her office even though she lost in her own hometown of Dumanjug during the last local election. After that debacle it’s very apparent she tried to burnish her image by putting her face and name to any project she could think of, ala Imelda. She must have thought it was a wise thing to do, to most it only exposed her insecurity. What she did to the vice governor who is her rival, was a result of such insecurity which have come back to haunt her now.
    Time to think of a fall-back employment, provincial jail consultant perhaps? That’s unless your goon of a brother will object mam.

  • boi skater

    From what I’ve read about Gwen, she is certainly corrupt.
    She also belongs to a family of politicians, a political dynasty, concentrating
    a lot of power and money and passed on from one generation to the next. There are
    many families like the Garcias in this country and Binay is also one of these
    families. Power, influence and money are the family business for these people
    and this country and its people are the loser. Binay defending Garcia really shows Binay’s true color. Binay can’t be allowed to be president of this country.

        @Victordupa Apud,,,, to be honest I dont care much of the President. Garcia was suspended by her superior, that is the DILG. If she dispute the accusation, then she has the rights to prove it in court according to the rule of law.I am sure she can afford the best lawyer of the Cebu. She is a governor, she should know that. But she herself is defying the law. That is why we have a court of law, to argue your case and not defying the law. She proves nothing but sheer disobedient and guilty of the accusation. “Plunder ???????” ,,,, wow,,,,,,,, !!!!!! that is a heavy case. If proven, it is a no bail case and once convicted, it is a life sentence. Tssk tsskk tsskkk !!! Wawa naman . Waaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

    hmmm if she just accepted the suspension then di na sana lalaki ung issue. but then again as what president aquino said “I am sorry, the evidence is so clear (against Garcia),” hindi pa xa na hihiya nyan? i mean ano akala nya sa amin “cebuano’s” bulag? she have many issues like buying that stupid island na mawawala pag high tide? for 25million if im correct? then another millions para tambakan ng lupa ung binili nya na island just to cover it up? tsk tsk then meron pa ung mga Lamp Post worth 90+k each? and ung convention center na millions ang budget pero puro hardiflex ung materials? wow.

      And her “supporters” checked in to a hotel in Cebu and the gov’t was billed around 200,000 for the accommodation of the supposed “rallyists” of Gwen. Not to mention the fact that in the provinces and far municipalities, she is paying around 200 per head to anyone that will “rally” for her, to top it off… gov’t vehicles were used to transport sa mga kampon nyang barayan to the city… and guess who get’s charged for all those expenses

    oi Victordupa Apud na bayaran ni Doling Kawatan. Buti pa para mapakanibangan ka naman kahit konte, mag.simula ka ng mag.hukay ng lupa at itambak mo sa almost  P 100M na lote na binili ng amo mo na nasa lalim pala ng dagat. Simulan nyo ng i.reclaim yung lot. Bobo
