‘The law applies to all, including the Vice Mayor’—Alfredo Lim

MANILA, Philippines—“The law applies to all, otherwise none at all.”

Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim’s motto had some violators on Saturday and they’re no other than his Vice Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno and five councillors.

Moreno was arrested and detained on Saturday afternoon for allegedly engaging in illegal gambling. Also arrested and detained were Councilors Jong Isip, Joel Chua, Benny Ang, Yul Servo and Maria Asuncion Fuguso.

Servo, like Moreno, is a former actor.

Lim, who is also called “Dirty Harry of Manila” because of his strict no-nonsense adherence to the law, said he learned about the arrest of Moreno and the five councilors on Saturday night when they were in detention already, radio reports said early Sunday.

“Tapos na nung nalaman ko. I learned about his (Moreno’s) arrest when he was in jail already. I talked with General Gutierrez and he told me about the illegal gambling case that the Vice Mayor was involved with,” Lim said in Filipino.

Lim was referring to Manila Police District director Chief Superintendent Alejandro Gutierrez who gave the go-signal to arrest and detain Moreno.

In earlier reports on Saturday, Moreno was quoted as saying it was all because of politics. Moreno is running for reelection with former President Joseph Estrada under the United Nationalist Alliance. They are running against the re-electionist Lim and councilor Lou Veloso, who is running for vice mayor, under the Liberal Party.

Lim said it’s not true that the arrest has something to do with politics and the coming elections. “Hindi porke nahalal ka, opisyal ka ng gobyerno, (It’s not because you’re an elected official), you’re above the law. Walang kinalaman ang pulitika dito,” Lim said.

Vice President Jejomar Binay and Estrada visited Moreno close to Saturday midnight to help in his immediate release.

Moreno and the other councillors were discharged past midnight for lack of evidence.

Moreno and the councillors allegedly sponsored a bingo game that reportedly attracted some 500 people in Manila’s Blumentritt area.

A team from MPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit arrested Moreno and other officials.  They were detained in MPD’s Quiapo station.

Lim said Moreno admitted sponsoring Bingo games for the last five years. Moreno was quoted as saying that it’s only now such arrest happened when he and Lim are with opposing political parties.

“Idadawit pa nya ako na kasama nya akong nag-sponsor ng bingo nung tandem pa kami ng mga nakaraang taon. Kasinungalingan. Unang-una hindi ako mahilig magsugal. Ang alam ko lang tumaya sa lotto,” Lim said.

Lim said Moreno and his political allies can’t gather people to hear them in their campaign sorties so they resort to sponsoring Bingo games and give prizes.

Supt. Ricardo Layug, commander of the MPD’s Quiapo station, told in radio interviews that the case against Moreno and the councillors are still up for further investigation.

    I always remember Mayor Lim as a lotto winner when he was a lotto/sweepstake “guard”, tagabantay sa lotto draw para walang dayaan, tapos siya ang nanalo, 5 million, would you believe that?  Or was that a case of bantay-salakay?

    GREAT!!!!

    Sana nag press release din ng MUGSHOTS tulad ng makulong si ERAP.

  • mabyrik

    UNA is forever consistent when it it comes to shielding law-breakers. 

    When Gwen was suspended for graft, immediately, the 3 bugok na itlog, Bi-anay, Erap and Enrile went to Cebu to express indignation over why people with graft and corruption issues are being punished short of saying “as long as we’re friends, you can kill, you can steal, you can do everything that is illegal and it’s OK”, then proceeded to advice Gwen not to obey the law.

    And today, Bi-anay and Erap went to the jail to express indignation why gamblers like moreno and friends are being punished for disobeying the law. 

    These bugok na itlog are just being true to their norms and standards, as defenders of the violators of the law, not defenders of those who upheld the law. 

    It’s not surprising anymore because Erap is a convicted plunderer and he knows what it is to be a violator of the law. 

    It’s also not surprising for Bi-anay for he was also accused of graft and corruption for enriching himself while mayor, becoming billionaire with no known business empire like Villar and the Ayalas, the Sorianos.

    I dread the day when Bi-anay, supported by a convicted plunderer erap and the chief violator of human rights Enrile, would become president. Criminals would be dancing in the street in grand celebration while dancing and shouting “Hail to the Chief”.

    tandem pa kami ng mga nakaraang taon. Kasinungalingan. Unang-una hindi
    ako mahilig magsugal. Ang alam ko lang tumaya sa lotto,” Lim said.

    • http://alasfilipinas.blogspot.com/ Pepe Alas

      I’m not into bingo and politics and the like. But Bingo games have been repelled from laws regarding illegal gambling. Even malls have bingo halls. The arrest done to Vice Mayor Moreno et al. is clearly all about political rivalries.

      • roque2015

      • http://alasfilipinas.blogspot.com/ Pepe Alas

        You are correct. Now, I don’t want to play their apologist, but if it was true (which I doubt) that they were indeed playing bingo in the middle of the street, that still doesn’t merit a harsh arrest for them, don’t you think?

    • efriend

      I don’t like any of the candidates for Mayor/Vice Mayor of Manila.  Tama ka Lim, sundin ang batas. Dapat nasa kulungan ka na rin after the Hostage Drama at Luneta.  You handled the situation poorly.

      • UrHONOR

        BA, naman, kabayan, hindi ako member ng CBCP!

  • wawa2172

    I guess Lim must have determined his faith in the mayoral contest of Manila. He gave Erap the mileage for the blunder of arresting Moreno and the councilors. Bingo is being played anywhere and sponsoring it is not a criminal offense. You are a fund spoiler Lim. Talagang malakas ka sa mga Aquino. You have massacred the farmers at Mendiola and abswelto kayo ni Cory. Kung kay The Pandak nangyari ito, kulong siya. The Luneta Hostage Crises, pumapel at pumalpak ka, patay ang maraming turista. Hangang ngayon di ka pa nakulong at it was Isko who defended you to the hilt at sasama pang mag pakulong. Well, I could have admire your strictness Lim but you are getting out of bound sa ginagawa mo. Lim and Erap, kawawa ang Manila, wala na bang iba?

    • Rovingmoron

      Kung si ERap ba ang mayor ng Manila dapat hindi hulihin kahit caught on the act na nag sponsor ng illegal na sugal kasi ka partido or kalaban? Whoever commits a crime, even if he is the son of the higher officials, must be arrested. It is the court that will determine on the outcome of the case.

      • wawa2172

         A sponsored Bingo social is not illegal that even the PNP spokesperson is at a loss if there is any law associated that define it as illegal. The MPD and Lim did not even specify the law or resolution that made the Bingo social as a crime. The evidence they have is that the bingo card has the name of UNA politician that includes Erap. The comelec has not even ruled against it dahil its election time kanya-kanyang gimik ang politiko. Besides hindi naman kasing laki nang streamer ang bingo card. Again my post is not in favor of Erap or Isko because I am not a voter of Manila. I pity the Manilenyo however of the kind of leaders they have with the like of Lim and his application of the law. Mababaw and purely political harassment. Erap could be much worst as he is an ex-convict but Lim is not exempted too because in my notes he should be punished for his role in Mendiola massace and Luneta Hostage crises. Kung na parusahan at nakulong din si Lim, puro ex-convict ang mayoral candidate nang Manila. Naman, the premier city of the country, Manila needs a better mayor than Lim and Erap.

    Hmm.. I guess Comelec should look into this. Could it be a sort of vote buying? 

  • Guest

    Ito na ang pagkakataon ni Erap para ungkatin ang corruption sa administration ni Lim. The new parking system in Binondo is a PPP entered into by Mayor Lim with a fake company called Mapma.

    01. Check with SEC, Mapma has only been around less than 3 years.

    02. Mapma is not even a company, it only has  a registered address as a front: 1059 Blumentritt St, Bgy 513, Zone 051 Sampaloc, Manila

    03. Why Mapma? What is the relationship of Mayor Lim with Mapma’s Freddie F. Fremista? (or also known as MGT Consultancy Services). Isko Moreno should know.

    04. Who said Dirty Harry is clean?

    This is how politics takes control of PNP! To Hell with RA 6975 and RA 8551! Kung sana lang Hindi politiko ang ginagawang SILG! Sec Robredo, bakit ka pa kasi nawala! Nang dahil sa mga politikong to, nagkakaron ng irregularities ang POP ng PNP. Do the arresting officers really need the go signal from the MPD director just to enforce the law and arrest someone? Clearly this is just a plot since the administration wants to take control of the flow of the election by eliminating their adversaries but of course by using the PNP. I bet, the MPD Director was promised of a “juicy” position either before he retires or after by LP, as future ambassador maybe. I just hope there will never be another Capt. Mendoza or worse, a civil unrest! Kawawa naman si mamang pulis, walang kinabukasan sa career kung walang kilalang pulitiko!   

  • Kamoteng_Dilaw

    OA naman si Lim. Porke’t iniwan ka na ng dati mong Vice-Mayor at mga konsehal, lahat ng kilos nila bawal. Nahawa ka na kay Abnoy na mapaghiganti e wala naman accomplishments. Ayusin mo na lang ang magulo at mabahong manila.

  • QritiQ

    I salute Mayor Fred Lim for this!  Next move, please arrest all Bingo Operators inside the shopping malls, jail them, and file charges just like what you did to the Vice Mayor and his allies.  Otherwise, perhaps it’s true that this is political harrassment.  Let’s see what happens in the next days.     

    • Bekok

      FYI  Bingo inside malls are LEGAL, they have business permits.  Yung kina Isko ILLEGAL.  you have to know the difference between Legal and Illegal. Kaya nga hinuli dahil illegal.  Political Harassment is a common term for defending wrong-doings of politicians, you also must know that.

Para kay Lim, imbes na makakabuti sa kanaya, mapapasama pa at kung bakit kasi sigurado dahil sa mga ganitong MEDIA Popularity ng mga nahuli..lalo silang mananalo sa eleksyon. Alam namin na ang mga BOBOTANTE sa Manila ang majority. asa ka pa?

    The Manila Vice-Mayor should understand that illegal
    gambling is against the law. What is wrong with these officials of the City of Manila?
     Mr Moreno even blame politics for being
    arrested. Don’t they all blame politics when they get caught doing something
    against the law. Mr. Alfredo Lim must be re-elected by the people of Manila.
    Voting for Mr. Erap Estrada as a Mayor of Manila will not make sense and will definitely
    send the wrong signal to those who truly care about the welfare and interest of
    the Manileños.

      Siyempre masama ang loob ni Lim.  Di ba balak ni Lim suportahan si Isko sa pagka-mayor?  Siguro nang nagpasiya si Lim na tumakbo uli nagalit si Isko at kumalas sa kampo niya.

      • Drillon Recto

        Kasi nga nung nalaman ni Erap na si Isko ang ginogroom ni Mayor Lim na tatakbo this election, naisip ni Erap na pipit itong si Isko at kayang kaya nyang ilampaso kung tatakbo sya. Kaya tumakbo ulit si MAyor Lim para sana protektahan ang posisyon na ibibigay nya ke Isko. Kaso tanga si Isko sa pagaakalang kung manalo si Erap (na hindi mangyayari) e ibibigay na sa kanya pagkamayor after 3 years. Hindi rin. Andyan ata si Jinggoy na pwede pumalit. Parang San Juan lang diba?

    • Simon Ybarramendia

      Review mo resulta ng 2010 elections at baka ang akala mo e si Lim nagpapanalo kay Isko. Nakalimutan mo na yata na mas maraming boto nakuha ni Isko kay Lim. Si Lim ang nakikisakay kay Isko para sa Manila.

      • Drillon Recto

        Hindi rin. Sino ba naman katunggali ni Isko kumpara sa kalaban ni Mayor Lim nung last election. Di naman mahalaga kung mas madaming boto ang vice mayor. Kung natalo ba si Mayor Lim noon e saan pupulutin si Isko kahit sya nanalo sa pagkabise?

    If the law really applies to all, how come mayor lim was never indicted / charged for being primarily responsible for the luneta hostage fiasco which resulted in the death of several hong kong residents.  remember that it was mayor lim, in his usual dirty harry tactic , who ordred the arrest / manhandling of the brother / family of the hostage taker causing mendoza (hostage taker) to loose his mental balance and started his shooting rampage.  this is evident in the irrc report made by sec de lime but which was eventually whitewashed by es ochoa et. al.  thus because of that incident we remain in the blacklist category among hong kong tourist.  isn’t it any wonder why the chinese are still mad at us for that incident since the least that they are asking is for the phil govt to apologize which pnoy arrogantly ignored.  magapakatotoo ka mayor lim and don’t take law into your own hands like all those salvage incidents that took the lives of suspects while in custody of policemen

    If bingo is really exempted from being a gambling game, as reported on TV, there is a loophole in the law, bcoz people can abuse bingo with very high bets. But street games might require permits and VM Isko should know that. While bingo games help the winners with token prizes, it also takes the money from poor gamers who buy tickets. It’s like a jueteng in different form. Why can’t local government come up with a sustainable business for their constituents like bag weaving, floor mat making, etc, rather than bingo games where winners get their money from losers (like gambling)

Plus, strict law enforcement should be done all year round, not just during election season, and not just on selected people, exempting their allies.

    Nabasa ko lang:
    ” Kung batas din lang ang pag-uusapan, maliwanag na bawal tumakbo sa anomang posisyon sa gobyerno ang sinomang ex-convict na nakasuhan at nahatulan ng hukuman sa kasong may kinalaman sa ‘moral torpitude.

    Kaya naman walang mahagilap na batas ang kampo ni Estrada para depensahan ang kanyang illegal na muling pagtakbo sa pulitika at kandidatura sa Maynila.

    Hindi nila alam kung saan hahanap ng batas na magagamit kontra  sa Section 40 ng Local Government Code, na nagsasaad na diskuwalipikadong tumakbo sa anumang posisyon sa lokal na pamahalaan ang sinumang tulad ni Estrada nahatulang guilty sa kasong may kinalaman sa ‘moral turpitude’ at nahatulang mabilanggo ng mahigit dalawang taon.

    Ang kasong pandarambong ay pinaka-sukdulan o pinakamataas na antas ng pagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan at dito napatunayang guilty at nahatulan si Estrada ng habambuhay na pagkabilanggo.

    Ayon naman sa Article 41 ng Revised Penal Code, ang sinumang nahatulan ng reclusion perpetua at reclusion temporal ay habambuhay na diskuwalipikado sa serbisyo-publiko.

    Labag din sa  Article 36 sa Revised Penal Code ang ambisyon ni Estrada na maging mayor ng Maynila dahil nakasaad dito na hindi naibabalik ng pardon ang karapatan na mahalal bilang serbisyo-publiko o karapatang bumoto hanggang hindi ito nakasaad sa pardon.

    • Simon Ybarramendia

      Sana, nabasa mo rin ng buo ang desisyon sa pardon tungkol sa kasong nabanggit mo, dahil kung nabasa mo, walang basehan ang nabasa mo na:

      “Hindi nila alam kung saan hahanap ng batas na magagamit kontra  sa Section 40 ng Local Government Code, na nagsasaad na diskuwalipikadong tumakbo sa anumang posisyon sa lokal na pamahalaan ang sinumang tulad ni Estrada nahatulang guilty sa kasong may kinalaman sa ‘moral turpitude’ at nahatulang mabilanggo ng mahigit dalawang taon.”

      Kasama sa desisyon ng pagbibigay ng full pardon kay Erap ang “FULL RESTORATION ng kanyang civil and political rights.” Sa madali’t sabi, walang colatilla ang ibinigay na pardon. (Sayang, pero kung may kaiinisan man, dapat e kung sino ang nagbigay ng pardon). 

      Ilang beses nang naibasura ang petisyon laban sa pagtakbo ni Erap na tumatalunton sa mga nabasa/naisulat mo Ai. Sa ngayon, masasabing isang disinformation na lang ang mga nagkakalat ng ganitong opinyon para guluhin ang mga nagnanais iboto pa si Erap. Maaring alam mo na rin na ang 2 abogado na patuloy ng pagsasampa ng petisyon (na ganito rin an tema) ay mga abogado ni Lim.

      Sa ngayon, iniisip ko pa kung sino sa 2 kandidato ang maaaring iboto (mayroon bang none of the above sa balota?). Ang isa, nawala sa pagiging presidente. Ang isa, di nawala sa pagiging Mayor, pero ang siyudad namang hinahawakan nya ang nawala.

        Justice for Erap IS > The Mayor of Philippine capital city. Residents of Manila rise up. We are now awakened creatures. Erap is for the True Filipino.

    ‘The law applies to all, including the Vice Mayor’—Alfredo Lim…

    I agree with you Mayor Lim.
    But you’re choice of Vice Mayor does not apply to all, not me.
    Lou Veloso is the Pinakapangit na Kandidato sa Balat ng Lupa…Busangot.

    Manila voters: Elect Bigote-sarap ng buhay ninyo,—alak, sugal, babae, fiesta all year round. Kung si Bigote and mayor ninyo, liligaya ang buhay ninyo-lahat na katarantaduhan ay okay lang. Dapat paulit-ulit ninyo iboto habang buhay siya.

    Mayor Lim, please also apply this law to the enforcers who dont do their duty. Letting homeless people squat BAYWALK – ROXAS BLVD. Please see their children using the street as toilets!! They cannot still vote but, good advantage for you that voters see you maintaining the law and order PLUS the cleanliness of the city!

    So many comments below and people will still vote for these idiots, what worse they will vote for an old dinosaur like erap, who has nothing to offer anyone other than feel entitled to help himself.

    Who is the lesser evil of the two…Erap or Lim?

    Ungas ka pala Isko e. Alam mo namang election season tapos kumana ka pa ng pagsponsor ng bingohan. Napaso ka tuloy. Di naman importante kung naabswelto ka dahil sa lack of evidence. Sa isip ng mga botante promotor ka ng sugalan. Damage control ka tuloy. Bye bye Isko. Di ka kasi mapakali e. Di mo na lang inantay na ibigay sayo ni Mayor Lim ang pagkamayor. Di ka gumaya ke Herbert. Sa palagay mo ba e ibibigay sayo ni Erap pagkamayor? Isipin mo nga kanino binigay ni Erap pagkamayor sa San Juan? Asa ka pa.

    Mayor Lim, grandstanding and mouthing grand pronouncements over a trivial matter proves that you are a better actor than your Vice Mayor.

    Aminin mo na lang kasi na nagpapa pogi lang sa iyo ang mga pulis mo (na takot mawalan ng kita kapag di ka na nakaupo dyan) e napasobra ang pagpapa pogi, napa pangit. At ikaw naman, ginagamit ang walang kuwenta para pumogi. 

    Alalay lang. Lumalabas, mas desperado ka pa sa katapat mo. Sabihin mo rin dun sa 2 lawyers mo, tigilan na nila yung harassing petitions. Kaya ka napapagbintangan e. Dirty Harry ka da dalawa lang na abugado (at abogado mo pa) hindi mo kaya?

    Erap, Mayor of Philippine capital city. A window that patriotic Filipinos had awakened.
