Pagcor ‘pabaon’ to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo: P345M



Then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo received a total of P345 million in a single day from Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) barely a month before she stepped down from Malacañang, Pagcor chair Cristino Naguiat Jr. said on Wednesday.

Naguiat said the huge sum was deposited to the President’s Social Fund (PSF) on May 28, 2010.

“The money was actually the share of the government from the earnings of Pagcor for the month of April 2010 and advance remittances for June 2010,” Naguiat told reporters at the Department of Justice (DoJ).

Naguiat said the issue was brought to the attention of Pagcor by Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares at a budget hearing in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.

Just four days before the checks were issued, Naguiat said Arroyo also received P80.2 million, again from Pagcor’s income for April 2010.

Jay Santiago, Pagcor chief legal counsel, said the sum was apparently a “last hurrah” for Arroyo.

Canceled checks

Santiago said the money was “possibly intended” to replace the canceled checks worth P185 million that Pagcor had prepared as “financial assistance” for all the barangays of the six municipalities in the province of Pampanga’s second district, where Arroyo is now its representative in the House.

He said the checks were prepared on May 26, 2010, but were revoked on the same day.

“There’s a great possibility that the money remitted to the (PSF) was actually meant to cover the sum which was to be given to barangays in Pampanga,” Santiago said.

P1M for each barangay

Naguiat said the checks were canceled after the media reported it.

“The Pagcor board ordered the issuance of the checks as financial assistance of P1 million for each of the barangays in Pampanga,” Naguiat said.

However, he said then Pagcor chair Efraim Genuino and the board did not cite the specific use of the financial assistance.

Check vouchers showed that Pagcor was supposed to give P44 million to Arroyo’s hometown of Lubao, P33 million to Floridablanca, P12 million to Sasmuan, P31 million to Guagua, P10 million to Sta. Rita and P29 million to Porac.

Naguiat said P215 million of the money for the PSF was an advance remittance of the state-owned gaming firm’s projected income for June 2010.

“But that money should have been deposited in July 2010 to be utilized by the new Aquino administration,” he said.

Asked if the transaction was anomalous, he replied: “For now, I cannot say if that transaction was anomalous. We’ll just let the COA (Commission on Audit) make that determination.”

Santiago said Pagcor would ask the Presidential Management Staff to check if the P345 million was spent judiciously.

Three letters

In three separate letters dated May 28, 2010, Genuino informed Arroyo that Pagcor was turning over the sum to the PSF from the “net cash income” from government-run casinos.

“We trust that you will find everything in order,” Genuino said in the letter which was signed on his behalf by then Pagcor president and COO Rafael Francisco.

In one of the letters, Genuino said Pagcor was remitting P130 million as government share of the profits for April 2010.

He said the amount, as reflected in Pagcor check 173093, was in addition to the P95.6 million that Pagcor already gave to the PSF for the same month.

In the two other letters, Genuino said the state-run gaming firm was turning over P45 million and P170 million, contained in Pagcor checks 173094 and 173095, respectively, as “Pagcor’s advances to the Office of the President.”

The letter did not indicate for what month the advances were being made.


The much-awaited face-off between Genuino and Naguiat did not happen on Wednesday as the former Pagcor chair skipped the preliminary hearing at the DOJ in connection with P186-million plunder suit that the latter had filed against his predecessor.

Benjamin Santos, Genuino’s lawyer, said his client’s presence was not needed at the hearing since they have yet to read the copy of the complaint and prepare a counteraffidavit.

The DOJ panel, headed by Assistant State Prosecutor Edna Valenzuela, gave Genuino and other respondents until Sept. 7 to file their respective counteraffidavits.

He defended himself by saying that the money he used in acquiring these properties came from cash gifts he received for his wedding as well as from campaign contributions.

The police, in a speedy investigation, found that the bombing of Batasan was initially intended for Basilan Rep. Wahab Akbar.The Glorietta 2 bombing, on the other hand, resulted from gas leakage. Rumors spread that the bombings were perpetrated by the government to divert the public’s attention away from the Arroyo scandals.The Batasan bombing happened the day before Pampanga Gov. Ed Panlilio was set to testify on the bribery of local officials in the Senate and a day before the House justice committee was to hear the impeachment case.The Glorietta 2 bombing happened during the height of the bribery case which took place in Malacañang.

    Itong si Naguiat kung magsasalita akala mo totoong ibinubulsa ni GMA. Gaya nitong pabaon, pero kung tutuusin ay para sa probinsiya ni Arroyo ang 345 million pesos.

    Gaya ng billion cafe, aakalain mo talagang isang tasang ang halaga ay 1 billion at ibunulsa din, pero yon pala ay ibinayad sa supplier for almost 10years  among 10 casinos.

    Kung talagang nagnanakaw si Gloria dapat na sa Switzerland ang pera na walang nakakaalam. Kitang kita naman na ang disbursement ay  para sa  project sa  probinsia.

I’m not a fan of GLORIA but kung ganito nalang araw araw ang laman ng ating mga pahayagan tapos puro lang imbestigasyon at pagkalipas ng ilang buwan ala ng balita, tsskkk tssskk …..kung may ebidensya, dalhin lahat sa husgado at i-file lahat ang kaso para masimulan na agad ang paglilitis para kung mapatunayan na nagkasala talaga mabulok na sa kulungan agad , eh puro press release lang ginagawa ng mga politiko natin eh.

    Is there no end to this?  When can the new administration buckle down to the task at hand, move forward  and not perform  in retrospection.  Leave these things to COA and overhaul PAGCOR to ensure than none of these will happen ever again.  Dreamy?  Yes I am!

    • Wacky Jabber

      I am amazed of your confidence in COA.  You really are a dreamer.  Reality is a b*tch but you still need to wake up.  Thieves try their best to cover their tracks and we are still finding out the extent of their crimes.

    It was the late dictator Marcos established the presidential social fund or president pork barrel. During Cory aquino time it was placed under control by the presidential management staff.

    Gloria issued an executive order placing the presidential social fund directly under the office of president to have a free hand to dip her finger anytime she wishes. When Pinoy took over he reverted back the presidential social fund to the presidential management staff control.

    Under the charter of PAGCOR the presidential social fund is a beneficiary of the income generated, There is no percentage specified so the president can ask any amount she wishes, unlike other beneficiaries a certain percentage is specified like 50% goes to the national treasury.

    ztefertilizerscam. I,m not saying I disagre with you but you have this emense hatred for GMA. I cant
    help but wonder if your a BAYAN MUNA cronnie. Another communist with a voice and little or no action but protest or are you really a conserned member of the public. Like I said I dont disagree with you. She is corrupt and should go to jail but you really go the limit so I wonder if your a communist complainer or a conserned member of the public. Just a question.

      ang alam ko, mga paying customers (casino patrons) ang nag consume ng kape, so where’s the problem?

      • Anonymous

        Sa nabasa ko nuon sa isa sa mga pahayagan, PAGCOR ang nagbayad sa ininom na kape  tsi na charge sa kanila dahil libre ang kape sa mga patron (kasi dinala ako ng kaibigan ko minsan sa casino at uminom kami ng kape na wala namang binayaran kundi parang chit na pipirmahan ng patron).Walang problema diyan dahil para sa mga casino patrons naman yon.Ang naging problema, kahit na nakita na ng taga PAGCOR na halos domoble o baka triple ang presyo ay nagbayad pa rin sila na duon din naman sa loob ng casino nakatalaga itong nagtitinda ng kape.

    another misleading headline, from PDI pa naman..shame..

    Ewan ko kung sino ang mga instructors nitong mga reporter at editor ng PDI. Nakakahiya sa kanilang pinagtapusan ng kanilang propesyon (?) laging walang kinalaman ang kanilang headlines sa loob ng balita.

    Di makasuhan si arroyo dahil mahusay lumusot, pero dito bugbog sarado siya sa dami ng comment…. marami parin alipores kanya di makasuhan. walang makaporma sa dami ang akusasyon hangang ngayon, hangang duon lang. Sampahan na kasi ng kaso, marami ang susuporta kapag natuloy.

     Pagcor ‘pabaon’ to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo: P345M….

    Sa tagal na nagserbisyo ni Gloria sa Bayan ang pabaon 345M lang, tapos allocation pa sa mga projects niya sa Pampanga.
    Wala kang makikitang Pangulo na katulad niya. Kahit pinabaon  ng galing sa sugal, ibinigay pa rin sa bayan.
