‘Former First Gentleman behind chopper sale’

Senate calls Jose Miguel ‘Mike’ Arroyo to hearing

By |


Lionair Inc. president Archibald Legaspi Po tells the Senate blue ribbon committee he sold the choppers to then First Gentleman Mike Arroyo in 2003. LYN RILLON

Then First Gentleman Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo pushed for the sale of two of his used helicopters that were passed off as brand new to the Philippine National Police, the head of the company that supplied three choppers to the PNP in 2009 for P105 million said on Tuesday.

Hilario de Vera, president of Manila Aerospace Products Trading Corp. (Maptra), testified before the Senate blue ribbon committee that Archibald Po, owner of Lionair Inc., had pressured him into selling the two used units to the PNP allegedly at Arroyo’s behest. Maptra was an accredited supplier of the PNP.

De Vera said he asked Po why Lionair was selling only one brand new unit when the PNP wanted three.

“FG (Arroyo) said only one brand new,” Po allegedly replied. “If you don’t want to follow, you can’t make a sale to the PNP because I won’t be able to help you. And you can’t get the units. That’s what FG wants.”

When De Vera broached the possibility of two brand new units, Po reportedly said, “I can’t do anything, tsong.” But he promised to try to convince Arroyo, according to the Maptra president.

Lionair is the exclusive distributor of Robinson helicopters in the country, and Maptra is its marketing agent in the bidding for helicopters at the PNP.

On paper, Lionair was the registered owner of five Robinson R-44 Raven I helicopters, including the three units that were later sold to the PNP.

Arroyo allegedly paid a total of $1.423 million for the five helicopters for the campaign of his wife, then President Macapagal-Arroyo, in the 2004 presidential election.

But it was actually Arroyo who owned the aircraft as he kept “blank deeds of sale” as proof of purchase of the aircraft, according to Po.

‘Invitation’ to FG

Sen. Panfilo Lacson asked the blue ribbon committee to “invite” Arroyo “since his name has been mentioned several times” during the testimonies of Po and De Vera.

Sen. Teofisto Guingona III, the committee chair, said Arroyo “cannot avoid testifying and there is no valid excuse why he cannot.”

De Vera said that in at least four meetings, Po consistently referred to Arroyo as FG whenever he inquired about the status of Maptra’s efforts to sell the used helicopters to the PNP in 2009.

De Vera said Maptra submitted to the PNP on June 15, 2009, a proposal to sell one brand new R-44 police helicopter and two preowned standard helicopters.

A rival bidder, Beeline, quoted P104,987,000 for its set of helicopters, while Maptra gave a price of P104,985,000 for its units. The PNP chose Maptra’s offer.

Cash payment

Po said he delivered $700,000 in cash to Arroyo at the LTA Building in Makati City after Maptra paid Lionair P40 million for the two used helicopters.

Senators surmised that at the going rate of P45:$1 at the time, Arroyo received an equivalent of P31.5 million in cash.

De Vera said he was constantly in touch with Po in 2009 when the PNP was looking for bids at the time for six helicopters.

In March 2009, De Vera said Po was already aware of a negotiated bidding in the PNP for three helicopters. This was after two failed bidding for the purchase of six helicopters.

De Vera said that during a visit to the Lionair office on March 18, 2009, he asked Po for a quotation for one brand new fully equipped Raven I and two brand new standard Raven I helicopters.

Five days later, De Vera said Lionair submitted a proposal to sell three preowned Raven I helicopters.

De Vera said he confronted Po about the proposal saying the PNP bids and awards committee specifically wanted brand new units.

FG instructions

De Vera quoted Po’s answer in Filipino: “I have instructions from FG that you sell and deliver those (preowned choppers) to the PNP. That’s what FG told me. That he wants to sell the three helicopters he owns.”

De Vera said he eventually received a proposal to sell from Lionair specifying one brand new and two used helicopters.

In July 2009, De Vera said he received instructions from a certain Ging of the PNP bids and awards committee to proceed to Camp Crame.

‘Order from FG’

De Vera said Ging showed him a copy of a supply contract that indicated that Maptra would supply the PNP with brand new units.

De Vera said he pointed out the error in the contract to Ging, who only insisted that he sign it since it was the one already prepared.

De Vera said Ging advised him to return the following day to receive his copy that had been signed by PNP officials.

Worried about the contract’s contents, De Vera said he went to the Lionair office afterward and told Po that the paper specified brand new units.

Po reportedly said: “I already told you not to worry because whatever you will deliver, no one will ask questions. They will accept the units because an order from FG was issued on what should be done.”

Huge cut

De Vera said that Po even demanded a huge cut from the profit he would derive from the deal.

“I know that you will also earn from the two preowned Raven I. So give me 50 percent from your net [income] for my extra effort in the transaction,” Po reportedly said.

De Vera said Po even described him as too skittish (masyado kang nerbiyoso). “I’ll take care of you (Ako bahala sa iyo),” he quoted Po as telling him.

While De Vera narrated these conversations, Po was seen smiling through pursed lips. He sometimes shook his head, straightened his tie or looked at a distance.

Eventually, De Vera said he delivered one brand new and two used helicopters. He received P3.5 million in check on April 15, 2010.

In July 2009, the PNP issued a supply contract and a notice to proceed. On Sept. 22, 2009, then PNP Director General Jesus Verzosa signed a purchase order to indicate that the sale would push through.

Serial numbers

De Vera said that when he went to the Lionair office to report to Po, the businessman showed him two helicopters in the hangar that displayed serial numbers different from the one Maptra indicated in its bid.

De Vera said he told Po that this could be a problem because the serial numbers of the units to be delivered were different.

Po reportedly said: “Didn’t I tell you that whatever you will deliver, the PNP will accept it? I’ll take care of you. I also told you before that FG had issued instructions to them [PNP].”

The used helicopters were delivered to the PNP in September 2009. De Vera said an inspection team flew the units and returned to the Lionair hangar.

One month later, De Vera said he called PNP Director Romeo Hilomen, a member of the PNP negotiation committee, to follow up on the 50 percent remaining balance for the choppers.

Puno

Hilomen reportedly told De Vera in Filipino “to stop calling (Interior) Secretary (Ronaldo) Puno because we are being pressured. I know for a fact that those helicopters are not new. I don’t like that!”

De Vera said he told Hilomen that he did not know Puno and even explained that he did not want to deliver used helicopters. “But I was trapped in this transaction and I can’t do anything,” De Vera said.

Senators confronted Hilomen about this exchange. The PNP official said he could not recall the exchange.

De Vera said he received the balance of P49,680,401.80 on April 2010. After collecting the amount, he sent a check for P3.5 million to Po that the businessman had demanded as his share for his efforts in closing the sale.

Demand letter

De Vera said that a week after Lacson delivered a speech in Camp Crame exposing the sale of used helicopters, PNP Director George Piano wrote him a letter demanding the delivery of two brand new units to replace the old ones.

De Vera said Piano gave him 10 days to make the delivery or “the PNP shall take the next appropriate legal step.”

A subpoena from the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group’s Anti-Fraud and Commercial Crimes Division followed.

De Vera said his wife and two employees also received subpoenas from the CIDG.

Po, in his testimony, said Arroyo wanted to sell four used helicopters as early as 2006, two years after they were used extensively during his wife’s presidential campaign.

At that time, Po said Arroyo wanted to sell the four units for $350,000 each.

The businessman told Arroyo at the time that his asking price was “on the high side” since the units he wanted to sell were preowned.

“But FG said ‘that was the price he was willing to sell’ the helicopters,” Po said, reading from his affidavit.

    I know what Mike will tell the Senate. He will  insist as already  indicated by his lawyer that the helicopter deal with the PNP begins and ends with de Vera and Po  and that the two, for reasons only known to them, are only trying to make him their FG – fall guy.

      He’s already filing perjury case against Mr. Po.  Such legal maneuver is common by criminals.  Perjury, counter charges….but the Filipinos know what and whom to believe.

  • Anonymous

    Enough of this poisonous mind conditioning charade. How can Po substantiate his allegations when there are no receipts to prove the transactions? It’s the word between Po and Arroyo which is solely disadvantageous to the latter knowing that the Senate is out to persecute him? Whatever, Mike Arroyo already filed a case of perjury or lying under oath against Archibald Po. In effect, Mike Arroyo risked it all and in fact shortened this charade by going straight to the court with competent jurisdiction. If he wins in his perjury case against Po then Mike Arroyo is telling the truth and Po is the liar. But if he loses, then the decision of the court affirms that Mike Arroyo is the one lying and in effect he helped the DOJ and the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee facilitate the prosecution of his crime.

      Poisonous conditioning of mind?  What do you think of Filipinos?  Dumb and stupid?  Tsinoy businessmen has the history and reputation of keeping quiet to avoid even the smallest controversy.  For Po and Sia to accuse Mike of the irregular transaction would be unusual.  They risk their safety and business.  But they came out.  Are we to believe Mike more than these two Tsinoy businessmen?

    Since there are two more helo for sale according to Mr. Po still sitting in the hangar, Sen Estrada asked if nobody claims them are you willing to donate them to the PNP? thats agood way of recouping some of the funds wasted and charge the devil Mike A. whatever admissible in court. Btw Mr. Po said yes.

    If Archibald Po is willing to donate the helicopters to the PNP in response to Jinggoy’s question then he just contradicted himself. He just admitted that he is the owner for how could you donate a thing when you are not the owner, pray tell me?

    I watched the senate hearing yesterday and when asked by Jinggoy if someone called him after this issue came out,  he said FG did. I clearly heard him say FG told him “stick to the documents”. FG said that because he knew that he left no DNA on the deal from start to finish, going by the documents themselves. It is now up to Po to produce a compelling evidence to prove that they were really FGs choppers.  I would think that there should be one or many.

    Tumigil na nga kayo. Enrile and Drilon could not even believe Po’s story that is why he is ordered to come back and bring with him documents to prove his allegations. Mas nauuna pa kayo sa mga Senador na nagiimbestiga pa lang. Sino bang mga abogado at nakakalaman sa batas, kayo ba o yang mga senador? At pwede ba, stop mentioning “all the filipinos” to vouch your own comment dahil pag nagpopost kayo ng comment na clueless o walang pinagbabasehan, iniinsulto ninyo lahat ng Pilipino dahil iudinadamay ninyo pa dyan sa ilusyon ninyo. 

    Para kayong si Llamas, abogado pa naman, Hindi daw “trial by publicity” ang ginagawa ng Malacanang pero kasabisabi kay Garci ay, “The filipinos has already adjudged Garcillano as a liar.” O eh ano ngayon ang tawag dyan sa “the filipinos already adjudge Garcillano as a liar” di ba trial by publicity ang tawag dyan? Hay naku parang ewan itong administrasyon.

      From: FG’s Atty Inocente Ferrer: He said he has yet to speak with Arroyo, who did not listen to the hearing upon doctors’ advice.

      “I would advise him to attend (the next hearing) but then we would also wait for the advice of his doctors. Let’s remember that he almost died a few years ago,” he said, referring to the heart surgery Arroyo underwent in 2007.

      A very clear indication that St, Lukes is now preparing the Suite Room of (FFG) Fake First Gentleman. HALELUYAH!!!!!!!!!. But for a trip to U.S and Europe he is very fine…WTF?

      • JV Velarde

        yeah, i heard that… if his doctors will advise him not to attend the senate hearing, the senate can always send their own doctor to check on FG, like they did with the Ligot couple.

  • JV Velarde

    Testimonial evidence is the most basic form of evidence and the only kind that does not usually require another form of evidence as a prerequisite for its admissibility. Just four requirements; with understanding & under oath, must have perceived something with his senses that is relevant to the case, remembers what he perceived & communicates what he perceived. With those police officers, Chinese businessman & other witnesses corroborations, pretty sure, the court of law will send FG rotting to jail. ;)

    Obviously, Mike Arroyo knows the Art of Dealing. The
    government can’t pin him down thru documents. He gave verbal instruction and received
    cash on his private LTA Office, where everything under his control, Security,
    CCTV etc. He is really a professional  _
    _ _ _ _.

    Is the Senate ( & Lacson)  protecting PNP? Why not Versoza do the talking
    and corroborate with the civilian witnesses. Did he received verbal instruction
    from FG? Affirmative answer, will boomerang on him since he received orders
    from a civilian. Or he received order from then DILG Boss –Puno? Is the current
    DILG  Puno protecting the earlier Puno? He
    can not escaped from command of  responsibility. He can’t swim between two
    rivers or serve two masters. He should serve the Pilipino people, else people will
    be suspicious that he’s part of that deal. During Estrada time, I remember  there’s an EO that all projects/procurements
    in excess of P50 million requires  approval
    from Malacanang (repealed or just pass over to him by Malacanang)?

    Further, the failure of bidding (2x), that lead to negotiated
    contract ( RA 9184)  is obviously a deliberate
    move unless justified by BAC? Senate should  summoned the PNP Bid and Award Committee (BAC)
    Chairman & members? The switched from brand new to pre-owned is unacceptable.
     PNP Chief and BAC members has the full responsibility
    on this deal…. and how come COA (attention Hayde) did’nt detect it on it’s Post
    Audit? Well, people know very well that Pre-audit  personnel and Residence COA is useless in PNP
    office. Thus, with or without FG on this Hell’copter transaction, Ombudsman should
    start doing its job.

    As I said before, freeze all their assets.  The lot of them!  This is criminal, and one doesn’t need to be a lawyer to work that out.   Their smart lawyers will back off for fear of non payment, and a deal will be struck that can incriminate those behind this plague of corruption.

    Then unfreeze the assets when proper taxes are paid, and everything is accounted according to correct procedure.  Prosecute those who have falsified documents, and have deprived and swindled the government.

    Until they start doing this, nothing will change.   Senators talk does not work!  Great pogi points, but that’s about it.  Step up someone, and make a difference………

    Granting for the sake of argument that FG Arroyo was behind the chopper sale. Is that illegal?
    We are in Free Enterprise Society. Anybody can make a deal and sale.
    Since time immemorial, the art of dealing is already with us. Di ba Barter pa nga ang tawag.

    Besides, there is what we call Caveat Emptor which means Buyer Beware. So, the burden  is  on the  part of the buyer of what he is buying. The buyer has the right of refusal. Inducement to buy is not a crime it is only a persuasion, if it is seduction then it is.

    Well, Senate investigation is just an investigation. Look at the instigator investigator, Jinggoy Estrada. His line of questioning is not worth hearing at all. No substance but full of malice.

    ““But FG said ‘that was the price he was willing to sell’ the helicopters,” Po said, reading from his affidavit.” — this is not a crime as far as I know. Unless you can prove that he influenced PNP to accept the used choppers as brand new. So far, it seemed to me he only name dropped to make a deal and he profitted from it very well.

    The paper trail may not be that good but if you connect the events that transpired and the people who accused Mike Arroyo it is very clear he is involved.
    Mike Arroyo bought 5 helicopters from Mr. Archibald Po to be used in
    2004 election. If you remember just before the 2004 election Mike Arroyo
    and Luli his daughter were in a helicopter at Pryce Hotel, Cagayan de
    Oro City. Cagayanons were surprised why Arroyo was there and they
    suspected that he was distributing money to win the election. Just
    recently former Mayor Hadji Rashid Limbona confirmed this in his
    affidavit at DOJ that he meet Mike Arroyo at Pryce Hotel just before the
    2004 election. Limbona said; “Nakita ko ang pera na ibinigay nya, pati
    chopper ibinigay kay Moner (referring Judge Nagamura Moner) para madali
    ang pagpunta sa probinsya.”  Referring to Moner using helicopter to fast
    track the distribution of money in the provinces for the election. The
    puzzle is already connected, these are people from different places in
    the Philippines and were involved through the machination made by the
    “bright boy” Mike Arroyo.

    This is legal stuff which is not my domain, but Po and De Vera can probably corroborate each others statement to pin down FG as the owner of the 5 choppers that they used during the 2004 presidential election and the previous first family’s air-taxi. These are the guys whose business is selling and leasing helicopters.  They should be credible.  There should be paper works that would link Mighty Mike.  What happened to the insurance documents and claims on the unit that crashed??
