MANILA, Philippines—A key witness in the plunder case against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other former officials of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) has admitted there was no proof where the allegedly plundered funds of the PCSO went. The illegal amassing of wealth is an element of plunder under the law.

PCSO board member Ma. Aleta Tolentino admitted she had no personal knowledge of the transactions allegedly undertaken by Arroyo and former PCSO board members.

During the cross-examination conducted by lawyer Peter Bantilan, counsel of former PCSO chair Sergio Valencia, last Jan. 25 to 26, Tolentino said the approval by former President Arroyo of the memorandum requests made by former PCSO general manager Rosario Uriarte for additional intelligence funds was both for an approval of the additional budget requested for intelligence funds and release of such additional intelligence funds.

Uriarte, Valencia and other PCSO officials are coaccused in the plunder case against Arroyo.  Other former PCSO officials charged were former board members Manuel Morato, Jose Taruc V, Raymundo Roquero and Ma. Fatima Valdes; and former assistant general manager for finance Benigno Aguas.

Confirmation ‘ministerial’

From the testimony of Tolentino, it was clear that the confirmation by the former PCSO board of the Office of the President’s approval of the additional intelligence funds was “ministerial.”

Tolentino also agreed that the board resolutions signed by the accused PCSO board members did not indicate which memorandum requests made by Uriarte and approved by Arroyo were being confirmed.  The board resolutions also did not mention the amount of intelligence funds whose approvals were being confirmed.

Tolentino also admitted that based on the documents she submitted, the amount of intelligence funds advanced by Valencia amounted to only P13.3 million, which is way below the threshold plunder amount of P50 million.

Valencia, as former chair of PCSO who was entitled to an annual confidential and intelligence funds (CIF) of P5 million, withdrew only P13.3 million from 2008 to 2010, below the P15 million ceiling for the period.

Tolentino also said she had no proof to show that the former PCSO chair disbursed more than this amount.

    When a person becomes a billionaire and can’t trace or back track an amassed wealth,what would you call it then?a miracle.

    • rethinking_madness

      Show first the billion before you accused one as billionaire.
      The judgment whether it is a miracle or not happens only in the third step.

      Bilyonaryo din ang mga Aquino! kung yung ibang senador nga bilyonaryo din! May pork barrel si BS Aquino na 60 billion a year. Si Mrs. Aquino ang Patron Saint ng pork barrel ng Presidente. Sya daw yata ang nagpasimula nyang Pork barrel. Kaya nga type na type nilang mag Presidente. Wow! 60 billion ang pork barrel na di ino audit!

    • speaksoftlylove

       Hirap silang ilabas dahil magisa lang ang testitigo ng administrasyon sa katauhan ni PCSO Director Aleta Tolentino tapos sinira pa ang sariling kaso. Sabagay, ang hirap magsinungaling sa harap ng husgado kung wala ka talagang ebidensya. Ginisa ng husto si Aleta Tolentino ng Sandiganbayan. When the Sandigabayan asked Tolentino who got the money she said “Uriarte and Valencia.” But then she made it clear that, “We don’t know your honor if they saved it, squandered it, or what. We just don’t know your honor.” Wala nga silang ebidensya laban kay Uriarte at Valencia how much more against GMA when Tolentino admitted that the approval or marginal note of GMA was purely ministerial? She emphasized this in open court kaya nagmumukhang witness si Tolentino para kay GMA. Nakakatawa and dating ng testigo ng gobyerno. Kaya ang resulta tinapos na ng Sandiganbayan ang presentation of evidence for the prosecution. No more corroborating evidence because tyhere is nothing to corroborate in the first place. Suma total, the case is hopeless. If I were the lawyer, I will move for demurrer to evidence for failure to state a cause of action against the accused or the act complained of do not constitute an offense para, mabilis ang dismissal.

      Kahapon nagpost ako ng comment higgil dito sa isyu ni GMA and I called the attention of PDI for not carrying the story. Mabuti naman nakonsyensya. Thank you PDI.

    The testimony of this principal witness may favor the the defendants and give credence to their claim that the first panel formed by the Ombudsman to conduct the preliminary investigation recommended only to file the case of graft and corruption against them and not Plunder as recommended by the second panel and approved by this present SOB Ombudsman carpio morales obviously to please her inutile and autistic president in malacanang and to keep the former president incarcerated.

      Dogyotg, testigo ng administrasyon yang si Director AletaTolentino. Sa totoo, siya lang magisa ang testigo ng gobyerno. Lahat puro hearsay kaya tinapos ng ng Sandiganbayan ang presentasyon ng ebidensiya para sa prosecution. Daldal ka ng daldal wala ka namang alam sa kaso. Ano ka lasing o durog? Si Tolentino na mismo ang kumumpirma na walang plunder na nangyari. Kumuha ba naman ng testigong sisira sa sariling kaso ang administrasyon tapos magdadakdak ka dyan. Sisihin mo ang lelong mong panot.

    Case 01: OWWA Fund Scam against Arroyo ==> Dismissed for sheer lack of merit.

    Case 02: Malampaya Fund Mess against Arroyo ==> Dismissed for sheer lack of evidence.

    Case 03: PCSO Plunder ==> About to be dismissed for sheer lack of merit.

    This is what happens to trumped up charges, falsified evidence, fabricated testimonies and most importantly, vindictive persecution. It’s one thing to go after the bad guys, but quite another to waste taxpayers’ money on the president’s personal vendetta. This flies right in the face of PNoy’s daang matuwid.

    PNoy may not be corrupt, but his friends are. By putting his friends in powerful positions, he’s enabling them to be corrupt. Yan po ang nakakagalit sa mapagkunwaring Daang Matuwid Mr. President!

      Lack of evidence… Enough time to destroy after gagging potential witnesses from the employees of the previous administration when they are prohibited from testifying in the Senate and House of Representatives.

      However it does not erase the fact that the nation has been hoodwinked of their hard earned money.  Saan na mga pera na iyan?

      • Guest

        Yes lack of evidence.

        It’s like exaggerating the Marcos loot to the tune of 10 billion dollars only to be confronted with the question of “How do we prove 10 billion was stolen” almost 3 decades later. Have you heard the latest from PCGG?

        All I’m saying is, let us use the law properly.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

        Let us use the law properly.
        That’s precisely what’s happening.  Even though deep inside us we know we are being taken for a ride, we still let justice take its due course.  Even if we know that part of stolen money may be used to buy expensive defense putting the poorly paid prosecutors to a disadvantage, we still sit down and let the rule of law prevail.  Now, decent citizens should at least show support on the effort to eradicate corruption by not keeping mum about it, rage, rage, rage.

        About the Marcoses, the truth is staring us in the face. After PCGG recover about 100B pesos did the Marcoses suffer financially as in getting back to their modest beginning? Obviously not, even if Imelda herself is saying they haven’t recovered much of the loot held by the Cojuancos (PLDT) and Lucio Tan to name just 2. Expensive de campanilla lawyers, dancing partners at PCGG… name it they have it in their favor.

        On the Arroyo front, take Mikey as an example. No visible means of income but once settled assets in the hundreds of millions were uncovered. Iggy Arroyo who took the heat suddenly becomes 5B richer.

      • Guest

        It’s obvious you’re not being objective, no wonder you don’t understand what “sheer lack of evidence” means.

    What went before?

    Anyone who’s following the PCSO plunder case will notice right from the beginning how this case was manipulated by Noynoy’s administration to frame up GMA et al. The first panel convened by the Ombudsman to investigate the matter found nothing to link GMA et al to plunder. Not satisfied, Ombudsman Morales immediately formed a second panel hastily to pin GMA et al. Right from the start, the Ombudsman knew the entire case of plunder has no legs to stand on. Noynoy’s black propaganda against GMA et al may have worked for a while, but propaganda alone is no brilliant legal strategy that will pass muster in a court of law. Hence, PCSO board Aleta Tolentino’s damaging testimony against the government’s case.

    Anyone who’s following the PCSO plunder case will be reminded of the “Mitsubishop” controversy wherein bishops of the Catholic Church allegedly received SUVs from PCSO. This allegation was quickly proven false by no less than COA Commissioner Heidi Mendoza during a senate inquiry last 2011. According to Mendoza’s testimony under oath in the senate, there was no Pajero given away to bishops. To this day, PCSO head Marge Juico has never apologized to the bishops for her false and malicious allegations. Not that the Catholic Church is pure and incorruptible, but this episode only showed to what extent Noynoy’s administration will go to destroy the reputation if not the life of Noynoy’s perceived enemies.

    On the other hand, Noynoy and Marge Juico have a lot to account for after 2016. The sweetheart deal that led to the sale of the historical 6.5 hectare PCSO site (formerly known as the Quezon Institute along E. Rodriguez Avenue) to the family of Alex Lopez (not of ABS-CBN) will haunt and hound Noynoy for a long time. Alex Lopez happens to be a classmate of Noynoy from elementary to college. This is also the same classmate who was Noynoy’s business partner when Noynoy set up his security guard agency during Cory’s time which handily bagged government contracts left and right.

    It won’t be long before the court dismisses the PCSO plunder case due to lack of merit. Another dismissed case, another damaging blow to Noynoy’s tyranny.

    Sana nabanggit in passing ang senate report na nagsasaad na may anomalya talaga!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/4XVVCOAZXYTPN2X3IPFCFDSKFM Melvin

    Kung gugunitain sa senate hearing noong 2011, tungkol sa pera ng PCSO, ay napatunayan yung 150 milyon intelligence fund ay inaprobahan ni GMA bago siya bumaba sa pwesto. At sa loob ng 6 na buwan, Uriarte encashed P138 millon of the said fund.
    Tanong: Sa napakalaking halagang nasabing intelligence project, sino ba ang project manager? Di ba si Uriarte, pero wala naman siyang back ground sa intelligence, zero. Saan naman siya dapat magreport? Syempre pa kay GMA. Alam ba naman ito ng ibang members of the board? Walang nakakaalam kahit isa. Mayron ba namang mga dokumento o papeles? Lahat ay ibinigay kay GMA ayon kay Uriarte. Mayron bang receipt? Wala… Maayos na manager pala si Uriarte…Good job!!!
    Teka! Ano nga pala ang pangalan ng project? Para daw sa illegal gambling o jueteng at mga problema sa small town lottery. Kalaunan ng gisahan ay dinugtungan ni Uriarte, sabi niya para din daw sa blood money, calamities at iba pang emergency situations na hindi na  under ng intelligence fund… Kung gayon sa dami ng pinuntahan ng pera maaari ding mapunta ang pera sa bulsa. Tanong: Sino ang may pirma sa intelligence fund?

    One this is very clear from all of this – that Arroyo is not liable for plunder and that Morales discarded the initial findings of the Somido report saying no plunder was committed and instead insisted on the plunder charge for the sole purpose of harassing Arroyo and putting her in detention. Our courts have become kangaroo courts and the country is well on its way to becoming a banana republic. Well done Mr. Aquino/administration and your hatchet-gal Morales, you have irreparably damaged the judicial system of our nation where “justice” only applies for your allies & KKK’s. The double-standard and hypocrisy of the Aquino administration is sickening!

      To Pnoy: “Beware, your foolishness now will go back home to your body at the right weather later on when you no longer reside in the palace!”

    Whoa!!! all the while, PNoy and media allegations the GMA committed plunder at PCSO are all for political purposes to put the short lady in jail until the end of PNoy term para gawin siyang model of his anti-corruption advertisement. Sabagay, malaking isda ang props niya: A former president and a supreme court CJ. Now the court will tell the truth behind the allegations and the PCSO main witness was a dud and could not present anything to probe that the short lady committed plunder. In most cases, the president sign documents on ministerial basis just like Noy signing the released of billion of pesos for 4Ps na nababalot din sa controversy at tiyak during presidential election sa 2016 to sasabog.

    Forgive noy AB for he know not what he was doing.

  • disqusted0fu

    Where in the key witness’s testimony indicates that GMA and her co accused committed plunder? Where are the evidences? Therefore, why is there still such a case? Why are they still detained?

  • disqusted0fu

    Pnoy and his administration must be going out of their minds as to how they can twist things around and still make it appear that GMA et al are plunderers. Once they lose GMA, all they are going to have left is Corona, who we all know was impeached just because of SALN inaccuracy.

    One of these days, Pnoy may have to turn his back on some of his KKKs and throw them under the bus for him to have ‘trophies’ for his administration’s anti corruption program.

    If this little fake President is,  indeed, innocent of her criminal activity, why then on earth she is now in a Dog house? She could die in the Dog house, yet she won’t be able to pay what she has taken from the philippine coffer.  Please read the corruption of Gloria, during her illegal term. I think some of these readers are imbecile  or simply ignorant.
