Trillanes disputes COA report he was top spender in in 2011

By |


Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines- Senator Antonio Trillanes IV denied reports that he was the top spender in 2011 in the Senate based on a Commission on Audit (COA) report.

“The COA report is only partial, the expenses of the oversight committees are not included,” Trillanes told reporters Monday.

He spent a total of P54.96 million in 2011, the report said. Almost half or P27.62 million was spent for office operations, P16.76 million for his staff, P6.74 million for maintenance and other operating expenses, P77,701 for capital outlay.

He said that his office had the highest expenses in the Senate because he employs at least 40 people in his staff, at least 20 more than the other senators’ offices.

Trillanes said that he had filled all of the positions provided for in the law, unlike other Senators who have unfilled positions in their offices.

The budget for the unfilled positions of other senators would be realigned as MOOE, he said.

He said that if the expenditures of the oversight committees would be included in the COA report, he would actually be listed at the bottom of the list because he only has one oversight committee with a budget of P15 million for 2013.

“If the oversight committees are included in the COA reports, I’m sure I will be the lowest [spender],” Trillanes said.

He said that he was consistently at the top of the COA’s list of highest spenders because of his many employees and the non-inclusion of the expenses of oversight committees.

Trillanes said that there were no anomalous transactions and he does not have any ghost employees in his office.

When asked if the practice of other senators to realign the budget for unfilled positions was prone to abuse, he said yes because it was in the discretion of the senator how that will be spent and that it only required a certification to be liquidated.

He said he would want to prohibit the realignment of funds into MOOE so as to prevent possible abuse in the expenditures of the Senate.

    A whopping P27.6M for office operations?

    And how has this benefited the people and the nation?

    Most likely this was just big salaries spent for the comfort and pleasure
    of his staff, and so money down the drain of useless political spending,
    and so bear in mind NOT TO VOTE for Trillanes in May 2013.

        Of course, my mom gave me budget for my schooling and i made sure that this is well spent. And if there is an extra (surplus), save some so that next month’s budget will be lessened and mom won’t be burdened anymore. 

        This is how these BUWAYAS in govt should spend PEOPLE’S MONEY. But they are not called BUWAYAS for nothing.

    Di pwede itong pira-piraso. Nakahihiya man tayo sa ibang bansa sa sobrang luwag ng batas ukol sa budget ng mga mambabatas, dapat na rin mabulgar para maayos na.

    Kahit tanggalin pa ang 23 senators at palitan ng bagong batch, ganoon pa rin ang kalalabasan nito hangga’t di binabago ang patakaran at limitahan ang mga senador sa paggagastos ng pondo ng bayan, Sana maghintay muna tayo ng kabuoan ng audit findings report ng COAbago maghusga sa tao.

    This is bad publicity for Trillanes. But this should come as no surprise. Trillanes has always been one of the top spenders in the senate, if not the top even prior to 2011. No wonder Trillanes loves to be a senator. Hindi na rin siya pwedeng maging sundalo. Tsk tsk.

  • UNAHINangBAYAN

    nakakalungkot lang na pati media na dapat kakampi ng bayan ay nagiging corrupt na rin at nakikisawsaw sa isyu sa senado. nagpapagamit sa mga trapo na tulad ni enrile. kung responsableng manunulat ang dapat nilalabas lahat, hindi yung pili lang na makakasama sa ibang tao.

  • Binibiningmaldita

    Dapat malaman natin kung bakit ganon kalaki ang gastos. Sa case ni trillanes napupinta sa sahod ng mga empleyado, yung sa iba kaya kanino napupunta?

  • bedouintrip

    The statement of one senator that Sen. Trillanes always asks for extra budget is now proven true.  This senator is very effective in coup rumours may it be in the senate or military. Just wondering what his staff are doing. Is it legislative work or just the same as others spending taxpayers money. 

  • Binibiningmaldita

    Ang dapat ay ilabas ng media ang kopya ng report at iexplain nila mahirap ksi interpret yung report para sa mga ordinaryong tao na di naman napag-aralan ang kalkran sa gobyerno. Hindi lahat ng tao ay naiintinsihan ang report na yan at nagiging malisyoso tuloy ang dating…

  • JohnDoeGB

    Isa lang ang oversight committee at ang daming empleyado. Waah Anong ginagawa mo Sen. Trillanes? P27 million para sa operating expenses, para saan? Ano pinanggagawa ng mga empleyado mo? Baka puro kamag-anak at kaibigan mo pa yan.

    Kung kaya ng ibang Senador na magskeleton work force, bakit hindi mo magawa na isa lang ang committee mo? Sige nga, ano yung mga bills mo na pinaggagastusan mo ng research, survey at consultations. Kung marami ang empleyado mo at wala namang ginagawa, paglulustay pa rin na public funds yon. Mali pa rin yon.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

    • PinoyComics

      Kung may pondo ka para mag operate ng full force, why not? Kung ang result naman is during his term in the hundreds ang filed bills? with several becoming law? Dami nga dyan, kaunti ang staff, kaunti ang projects, pero in the millions pa rin ang gastos.

      • JohnDoeGB

        Ano nga ang mga bills ng senator mo na si Trilliones? Sge nga name a few na naapprove na primary sponsor sya… hindi yong sabit lang sya ha? Bakit kailangan iexhaust ang pondo kung wala namang katuturan ang ginagawa ng mga empleyado nya. Note na year 2011 lang yong nagastos nya hindi sa “during his term”.

    O! baka magpadala na naman kayo sa COA palakad na naman ni Enrile yan at hawak nya ang COA. demolition job yan kay trillanes at the same time gumanda ang chance na manalo ni jack dahil bumaba sya sa latest survey, mga simpleng tirada ng mga pulitiko na malakas ang kapit na isang tawag lang sa mga koneksyon nila na may utang na loob sa kanila. alam naman natin sa tagal ni Enrile sa pulitika halos lahat hawak na nya at laging may kapalit pag may ginawa si Enrile sayo. Lalo na kasama si Enrile sa bumubuo ng Comission on appointment.

  • jenniferjoycuevas

    i see this as trnasparency. this senator is just too honest and i admire him for being one. kaysa naman sa maraming itinatago di ba.

  • manongjuan

     oo nga naman marami siyang staff kaya malamang malaki rin ang expenses niya.. eh bakit yung  ibang senator balita ko konti lang ang staff tapos nakakagastos din ng malaki.. mukhang may mali yata ah..

      I read that story din, la na nga staff, la pa project, million million pa rin ang gastos.

    Why doesn’t the COA show the full report including the ranking of
    senators based on spending and the breakdown thereof? Let the people
    judge the document. And perhaps, the Senate could also publish a report
    on the accomplishment or outputs of these committees. Even if you’re the
    lowest spender if you’re incurring millions of pesos with zero output,
    it doesn’t make you a saint, it only means that you’re an inutile Mr/Ms
    Grinch.

  • zeroko

    Mali kayo.   Administrative Order 103 which is Directing the continued adoption of Austerity program in the government. Now, what does it means if you have 40 employees while the rest of the Senators has 20? It means, your 40 employees are less efficient, that is why they have to double their numbers to consolidate their intelligence.  He he he.

    Kung baga, kulang sa luto. Then again, while Trillianes was confined to quarters while sitting as Senator, he incurred the highest travel expenses. How could that be, junket for his former comrades? Trillianes is a Chinese, remember that!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QA264KB7TICWJ5LQG5ZXN6CM2Y ruel

      ilan kaya sa 40 ito ang mga kamaganak ni Trillanes…Imbestigahan dapat pati mga employees ng mga senador na ito.

      • PinoyComics

        TAMA! nang makita na din na karamihan ng ibang senador anak nila or kapatid or some other kamag anak ang mga chief of staff. May isa nga dyan, mukhang mistress pa ang chief of staff eh. bato bato sa langit…..

    • PinoyComics

      hmmm, I doubt that. the guy came in fourth biggest spender during the time he was the 5th most productive according to the senate’s journal. A lot of people here like reading the headlines without reading the story. The travel expenses were realigned for construction projects etc, like every other senator does. or did no one bother to read that news item? and how the heck did the bicolano become chinese?

      Why not compare it to the office budget ng other senators? I think sa pasahod lang to magkakatalo dahil marami siya tao.

  • observer1356

    kung alin pa yong prone sa abuso, yon pa ang hindi sinisilip ng COA?

    kung yong hindi pagsilip ng COA ay base sa batas, talagang pinatutunayan lamang na yong mga mambabatas mismo ang may kalokohan… at syempre, sino ba ang nakapwesto sa Commission on Appointments (na nag-a-appoint ng Commission On Audit  members ??? at sino ang namumuno??

    kay Trillanes pa rin ang boto ko!  At least maraming nakikinabang na mamamayan sa budget ng opisina nya at within the lawful budget as opposed to those senators who are maybe under-staffed but whose disbursements of people’s money is hidden from the public… sila-sila lang ang nakikinabang sa patagong paraan…

  • ganda babae

    coa make sure na totoo ang mga report na ilalabas nyo o baka naman isa kayo sa mga nakatangap ng milyon bakit ba s trillanes inyong nakikita at nasisilip…..

  • carlos_premacio

    And how many bills did this rebel-soldier-turned-Senator pass and became law in 2011? With almost P55 Million office budget and more than 40 people, I want to know his legislative accomplishments. I can’t find a single one authored by him in 2011. Anyone can share? I want to know how did this Senator spend my money. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HHDSNAYUE2JRBE6BF32LXHFJAE Shieradel

      Uhm, may nabasa ako ulat nya sa bayan. Nsa trenta na yata yung naipasang bills na sya ang author/sponsor. Then more than 700 yung filed bills and resolutions nya. Not bad nga e. e di ba nakulong sya half ng term nya

      • carlos_premacio

        did he author the bills? I read it and it says co-author lang. and none was passed into law. and no committee hearing conducted on those bills passed. eh saan napunta ang pera natin?

    • PinoyComics

      I checked, the guy filed tons of bills. just check the senate website and search for bills by author.

      • speaksoftlylove

        Filing a bills is not an accomplishment. What makes it an accomplishment is when those bills become a law. Ang tanong: Meron bang bill si Trillanes na naging batas? O baka sabihin mo naman na hinarang kaya walang naaprubahan,? Lumang tugtugin na yan, ginamit na yang palusot ni PNoy noon for nine years without any accomplisment.

    Same lang naman ang mga budget allocation nilang lahat. Pero i think hindi porket Less ang spending e ibig sabihin isinauli nung mga “matipid” yung budget. As far as i know nirerealign nga nila yan. The question is, nasaan?

  • PinoyComics

    Wala bang naunuod ng news or nagbabasa ng dyardo dito? Inquireer pa naman ito. Malinaw na sinabi na si Trillanes ang FOURTH biggest spender, not the top. Ange dami employees niyan, malamang malaki pasahod. Mas nagtataka pa ako dun sa matanda na naka 12++million kahit na 3 lang ang empleyado.

  • robert_tan

    Right now, Im hoping for two things: COA to show the Full report; and media people to practice responsible not-the-becoming-usual-one-sided journalism.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GYYFBINDMTZHM6TDHPB667452M agustin

    Enrile should be the biggest spender and Trillanes is second biggest spender. but being the senate president he was absolved by COA. so is the palace too, absolving Enrile is the best solution to shut his mouth from broadcasting the anomalies committed by the palace.

  • disqusted0fu

    Excuses, excuses… Deny, deny, deny… How can you deny a report based on COA report itself? Do not worry though, Mr. Trillanes, as an administration ally, you shall enjoy the freedom that all well known Pnoy allies get. 

    • sean_javier

      If only coa will publish the complete report.i dont feel trillanes is denying anything. He owes it to the people. Yung ibang politiko “deadma” kapag may iponaparatang sa kanila. I can name tons.

  • peter_payper

    nakakapagtaka.. di ba tama lang naman na ideklara magkano yung mga nagasta ng isang pampublikong opisina? bakit isyu pa ito? tsktsk. ang tuunan dapat ng pansin ng lahat lalo na ng coa e yung mga hindi nagdedeklara ng mga pinaglagyan ng budget..ayuuunn..yun ang mga siguradong maanomalya!

  • sean_javier

    Teka lang ha. Hindi pa nasesettle yung nilustay na pera ng bayan ni enrile e. bakit itong biglang napunta rito e may liquidation naman itong psinasabi na ito ng coa!?? I hate to think na dina-divert ang issue para matabunan yung mga dapat panagitan at sagutin ni enrile.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Trillanes planned to make a privilege speech to defend his expenses but “chickened out” at the last minute and chose the media instead for his own “praise release.” Yet, what he mentioned in media only infuriated Sen. Angara. Trillanes claims “glaring disparities in tens of millions of pesos on the
    outlays for the Senate ad hoc bodies which he said should be made
    public to prove who has been splurging the funds of the upper chamber.” Trillanes also said that, “If we include the expenses of the oversight committees, he admits that he has the biggest allocation because he employs many people.”

    However, Angara reasoned out that ad hoc bodies which Angara incidentally chairs one of these are bicameral bodies. It’s members are senators and congressmen unlike Trillanes who is only heading an oversight committee created by the Senate. But the most telling of it all is that the COA report of expenditures does not include that of the oversight committees. The reason why COA do not include the report of the oversight committees and other ad hoc bicameral bodies is that it is not required by the Commission on Audit so Trillanes is just creating more animosity among his colleagues.

    Ayaw pang aminin ng higad. Biustado na humirit pa. Trillanes akala ko ba maalis na si Enrile sa pwesto sa loob ng dalawang linggo. Failed coup d etat again? Dyan ka magaling sa delihensya at kasinungalingan.

I can now say nagamit naman pala at sulit ang tax na ibinabayad ko kahit pano. Im hoping this issue be settled the soonest possible time ara makapagfunction better ang mga public servants natin. Ceasefire.
