MANILA, Philippines—The Sandiganbayan Fourth Division ordered the arrest of whistle-blower Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada Jr., who is facing two counts of violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

Lozada has been charged in court for violation of the anti-graft law for allegedly awarding the leasehold right of a 6,599 hectare land to his brother Jose Orlando Lozada without undergoing the application process.

The Sandiganbayan said Lozada has yet to post P60,000 bail for his temporary liberty.

      • KpTUL

         he started spilling the beans when he realized that he cannot hide together with beans being a bean himself. Kaya .. nag whistle blow kasi akala nya kapag magnakaw siya makakaligtas na sha after blowing .. Blow ur A** lozada !

    Mr. Lozada hindi kumo whistle blower ka sa ZTE case against Arroyo, absuelto ka na sa mga kaso mo. Mahirap yan. Pwede pala akong magnakaw ng limpak-limpak sa gobiyerno at hanap ako ng mayparehas na sala at i whistle blower ko siya upang ligtas na a ko sa aking kalokohan.

    HINDI PWEDE as in NO ID NO ENTRY!

    • KpTUL

       hehehe … akala ni lozad safe na sha .. tatakbo yata pagka senador yang korap na yan ehhh

  • KpTUL

    Kasi sa pinas, una mangugurakot yan at kung hindi makakuha kung wastong presyo, kaagad maging whistle blower yan. Tapos tatakbo sa senado. Lozada kapal ng mhka mo. 

  • KappaPhiPhi

    his real pre occupation is a middleman/facilitator of big contract. the bidding comm of a prominent school and him got into big trouble when they were accused of rigging the bid for a construction inside the school.

  • rethinking_madness

    Nakakalungkot naman ito.
    Mas mauna pang ma convict si Jun kaysa kay Gloria.

    • Rogers Nelson Uy

      sorry boy, si GMA walang napapatunayang me kasalanan, pero itong lozada, meron

  • Eric Altirado

    i pity this guy, ginamit at nagpagamit sa interes ng iba, naging 1 day fame, the next day parang daga nlang. no body will trust this guy, kasi once you betray a friend/boss no body will trust you anymore, kahit this administration  na nakinabangan sayo, will not trust you either baka gawin mo rin sa kanila yong ginawa mo sa dating boss mo. just live with it to the rest of your life. sana yong mga nun nandyan parin sa tabi mo, just be hopeful na pnoy will bail you out same as what he did to padaca, et al.

  • aldhins

    Minsan may katotohanan  yung sabi sabi na mga politician mag kakapatid  sa media lang  kunwari mag kaka laban. Masakit itong  sinapit ni Jun Lozada akala nya pag alis ni GMA malaya sya di rin pala siguro kung pweding ibalik yung buhay nya mas ok nanahimik na lang baka wala na syang problema now.

  • Maldi2

    Takbo ka ginoong Lozada, 
    Sa mga madre at may pera
    Dahil kay Panot wala kang pag-asa
    Mga drama mo kasi ay buking na!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_DMQA5JDNNAY3CTREKDGKPNQD6A ronie

      subra ka naman hehehehe. ok ang tula mo ah.

  • ted duallo

    moral of the story? huwag na huwag kang magpagamit.

  • mon key

    and he will end up in jail, instead of the Arroyos! how farcical Philippine justice is!

    • carlos_premacio

      then he should ask help from PNoy, his benefactor. The Ombudsman, who is by the appointed by Lozada’s President, recommended for his arrest. And the Ombudsman is representing the Government against Lozada. Does it mean that the Ombudsman, appointed by Lozada’s President PNoy, is also paid by GMA? Make your yellow brains think. 

  • doodzie

    umiyak ka ngaun sa luob ng kulungan … kala mo kung sino malinis at nagtatago sa saya ng pari at madre.. asan na ung mga madre .. pagtanggol nyo ngaun 

  • calixto909

    Lozada, the law or any law for that matter in its strictest sense can’t be compromised. Each one of us has to abide and submit ourselves to its grinding wheels as the law takes it course nonetheless, the annals of history enshrined you in its journals as an honorable whistle blower. You’ve done your country a great service by your bravery and painstaking sacrifices to herald the naked truth of the corrupt practices of people and the government though your life and that of your family had been in constant danger. Even the future of your children had been compromised in the process but as you’ve shown you were steadfast and did never bend so for all of these, My heartfelt appreciation and thanks to all you’ve done to our country and to your family. May your thrive increase and I’d pray that with God’s blessing and guidance, you’ll come out the victor in your case. 

  • mojo76

    I think this is fair ,he might be the whistle blower but if he also violate something it has its consequence and need to face it. Rule of law is equal to anyone no exception then we could hopefully see genuine change in our justice system…..

    Kaya pala in the last few days may report na si jun lozada daw may na rereceived na death threats. SUS drama lang pala yun. Gusto lang umiwas sa arrest warrant. Pwes kung nagkamali ka at nagnakaw ka pagdusahan mo ren. Plastic

    dagdag naman sa baul ng bansang pilipinas ang mga kaso ng corrupt na wala namang nakukulong..tsk..tsk..tsk.

  • Rogers Nelson Uy

    simula palang lumabas yan sa senado nuon, di na ako naniniwala sa kanya, ewan ko ba sa mga tangang senador at napaniwala nitong magnanakaw na ito, mabuti pa si senador mirriam binuking ang mga gawaing pagnanakaw ng magkapatid na lozada.  Tapos kunyaring iiyak iyak sya sa interview nya, naku po tama ng acting! Magnanakaw!

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

    Jun Lozada has the courage to be a whistle blower for Lacson’s ZTE NBN expose’, that is to show his gratitude for the senator. but un aware that his testimonies are just hearsay because he is not an employee or officer of ZTE. therefore only ZTE officials can declare bribery or corruptions for the accused.

  • rambe66

    he’s still innocent until proven guilty.

    • Rogers Nelson Uy

      mahina talaga utak mo, merong paper trail yan kaya makukulong, si GMA nakulong na laway lang ang mga ebidensya at nakuha sa hangin

    And justice for all…

  • kilabot

    moderate your greed, jun. 
    you should have listened to your boss/lover; 
    there’s still hope, though; 
    you must be aware of noykapon’s weakness, right?

  • garcia677

    There are two sides to peruse in Lozada’s case. One is his alleged corrupt practice which now haunts him and his family while the other was his expose to the massive corruption involved in the ZTE deal which no less than former Pres. GMA was the huge fish to be caught in the pond of corruption.

    Both sides bespeak of corruption but what’s interesting to note revolves in  an atmosphere whereby the big fish is now languishing in shame and obscurity while the whistle blower hurt by his own sword is now defending himself all alone for the government that he helped had apparently abandoned him. 

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

      Abandonment is I think not the right word, he has been charged with corruption, then let Lozada face the case squarely. It’s feather on the cap, for the govt that he has helped. That means the govt is fair in implementing the law, friends or for, KKK or no KKK…..

    ganito ang batas hindi patas,,,ang kaso ni gloria sa pcso,pinirmahan din nmn nya na e released ang pondo,,pero bakit hindi tlga makulong kulong,,dahilan nya tulad rin ni gwenduling pumirma lng pero di alm kung saan npunta ang pera,,bakit si lozada tiklo agad ang bilis nang kaso,,pero ky gloria kurakot hindi madesisyunan ilang taon na,,,,BULLLLLSHHIT

    No one is above the law…even if you cry your azz up, unless ur KKK.

  • Ron Castanaga

    Yan ang masama, indict but no hearing and conviction. The Ampatuan case, Gloria bulilit and hubby, Gen Garcia only 2 years in the cell, Gwendoling only 6 mos suspension with millions of pesos loss from the gov’t, Ligot, Cimatu, Euro generals, at marami pa, all waste to the gutter. Gwendoling should be committed to prison to suffer her ignorance and incompetence(her case was instigated by the honest late Sec Robredo). PNoy, your gov’t stinks. Make it better. Employ better judges like Pamaran and Judge Jeanine.

  • zugz

    mag tago ka uli sa la salle o kaya i ‘blow” mo si noykapon dre lusot kayo ng utol mo .ganun lang  yun

  • Rovingmoron

    Actually, Lozada has no other options but to face the charges against him in the court of law. He has to post a P60,000 bail and hire a good lawyer.

  • disqusted0fu

    What goes up, must come down. Lozada blowing his whistle against GMA caused him to go up the ladder with massive exposure and support from anti GMAs. But when he couldn’t back up his allegations against GMA with facts, he lost everything he gained including protection from Pnoy. Now he faces his own charges, causing him to go down.
