MANILA, Philippines –Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile has called on the Commission on Audit not to allow itself to be used by anybody for “political or partisan ends.”

The call came just a day after the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported a COA finding that Enrile’s PDAF or priority development assistance funds was among  the sources of millions of pesos that allegedly went to a questionable non-government organization.

“In the interest of fairness, transparency and justice, and to penalize those parties who may have financially benefited from the PDAF funds which are meant to help our constituents, I urge the Commission on Audit to officially release in full its findings and observations borne out by its special audit,” he said in a statement.

“The COA which is a constitutional body must not allow itself to be used by anybody to achieve political or partisan ends by allowing a piece-meal or selective disclosure of parts of its report,” he added.

“If indeed it has completed its special audit, it must explain the parameters and the scope of its audit and, in all fairness, point out the parties responsible for any shenanigans in the use of public funds without fear or favour,” Enrile said.

Enrile said COA chairperson Grace Pulido-Tan and Speaker Feliciano Belmonte had informed him that the agency was conducting a “special audit” of the PDAF of all senators and congressmen and she was aware that some lawmakers were concerned that they were being singled out or targeted.

“But she clarified that the special audit was not directed at the lawmakers but at the implementing agencies,” Enrile said.

“I said that I understood her point, it was a job she must do and I personally had no worries or qualms about the utilization of my own PDAF being scrutinized by the COA,” he said.

After all, Enrile said, he uses his PDAF “with utmost adherence to transparency and accountability.”

The COA report, however, showed that his PDAF also known as “pork barrel”   was among the sources of some P195 million that went to a questionable non-government organization, Pangkabuhayan Foundation Inc. (PFI).

The other sources were the PDAF of Enrile, Senate Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, Senator Ramon Revilla Jr. and former Buhay Representative Rene Velarde.

Enrile confirmed that he allocated a total amount of P74.69 million for agricultural and livelihood projects from his PDAF in 2008 and 2009.

The funds, he said, were released to the Department of Agriculture, which turned over the money to a GOCC called Zynac Rubber Estate Corporation (ZREC). It was the ZREC that released the funds to the PFI.

But Enrile immediately denied any knowledge of or any link to PFI or its alleged president, Petronila Balmaceda.

In fact, he said, the signatures of his staff in the liquidation documents sent to his office by COA had been allegedly forged.

“When I checked with my office, the documents much earlier sent by COA supposedly for verification purposes contained “liquidation” reports and documents signed by a certain Petronila A. Balmaceda as president of PFI and at the bottom, the supposed signatures of my staff members were obviously either forged or super-imposed to indicate my conformé,” he said.

“Above the signatures of my staff members, the papers said: ‘By authority of the Senate President.’”

“For the record, none of my staff members have ever signed any so-called liquidation documents relating to the implementation of projects that I have identified as beneficiaries of my PDAF. It is not our role to liquidate these funds,” Enrile said.

He said his office had not also been notified by the COA or the ZREC that the PFI was already blacklisted and should no longer be granted any fund assistance.

“We have never been warned nor have we ever received any such notification from ZREC nor the Department of Agriculture. I have no knowledge of nor any link to PFI, or the one identified as its President, Petronila Balmaceda,” Enrile said.

  • Serom

    The senate president is very good in the palusot.  It is not the role of COA to notify the legislators of blacklistings of suppliers or their contacts.  The role of COA is to post audit consumated transactions.  If these legislators are responsible enough, they should have monitored what is happening with their PDAF.  Anyway, they are the ones who initiated what projects where they will use their PDAF.  They could have safeguarded where the people’s money go if they are responsible enough.  But they don’t care after getting their kickbacks!

    Senator Enrile gives out public money to senators

    Enrile gave a whopping bonus of 1.6 million pesos each to 18 senators last Christmas. It is interesting to note that rather than hand over unused funds back to the treasury, Enrile saw it fit to distribute the so-called “savings” to Senate employees as a personal gift. According to the same report, even drivers and security personnel in the senate got bonuses ranging from 50,000.00 to 120,000.00 pesos.

  • joshmale2004

    So if Enrile said the liquidation of his PDAF was forged, then the money withdrawn from his PDAF was also forged. So how did anyone just got the money from the bank without the Senator’s knowledge?

  • ztefertilizerscam10

    “The Chicago Tribune reported 15
    years ago that Enrile’s wife Cristina walked out on him in January 1998 
    after charging adultery.  The Tribune also reported that the “other woman
    “ was Gigi Gonzales-Reyes, Enrile’s chief of staff,  about 30 years
    his junior.”

    Enrile’s only son Jackie Enrile was a notorious killer who killed several people including alfie anido.

  • Serom

    The COA Audit result is not meant for political black propaganda as Sen. Enrile is insinuating.  It’s just timely that the audit result is due for release.  This audit is years in the making I believe. You see the scope is CY 2007-2009.  And the negative informations in the report does not involve candidates in the opposition party only.  I believe the office of the Senate President is also furnished with a copy of the report so there is no way that he shouldn’t know this.

      • Serom

        Kasama na yan sa report Amelito.  COA had never been impartial.  The problem is the Inquirer which is bias. Di nila pinablis those in the administration party.  I strongly believe there are also admin candidates na nkinabang ng husto sa kanyang PDAF.

    01. It’s not in COA Chair Grace Pulido-Tan’s nature to play politics. She was not afraid to declare in the PCIJ,org and GMA-7 investigative report (The Wealth of the Gods of Faura) that Chief Justice Sereno and Justice Carpio also submitted untruthful SALNs for 2011. She did so again on camera with Solar TV’s report. This makes both Sereno and Carpio equally impeachable if Corona’s precedent is anything to go by. But that’s for 2016 and beyond. For now, suffice it to say that COA Chair Grace Pulido-Tan has credibility and fairness that Enriles is asking for in a COA chairperson.

    02. Enrile is barking up the wrong tree. The COA report for CY 2011 was released early in 2012. Enrile should be asking why PDI has kept quiet about it all this time only to use it for political purposes during election 2013.

    03. Any plans of dropping Jackie?

  • manual47

    The truth hurts.  And of course, it’s typical of these crooks who always denied and say they don’t know anything about it.  At first …….”anything goes and when they got caught, they denied it”.   What can we expect from this “old geezer” (Enrile) who’s been there for a long time and quite familiar with how the corrupt system works.  Quite astonishing, it took this long for COA to finally acknowledge and inform the people of this corruption. I just hope that this government agency (COA) has finally come to their senses and accept in honesty of their responsibility to the taxpayers. Of this, it’s no surprise because the people had known of this corruptions for a long time. It’s about time this “pork barrel” is abolish. And we just hope this revelation is not politically motivated……

    “Above the signatures of my staff members, the papers said: ‘By authority of the Senate President.’”

    If what your saying is true, that is recklessness.  You should have investigated how it happened,  In the first place, that’s your accountability.  Your silence is questionable, Sir.

    True, the audit parameters must be disclosed and the purpose of the carrying out of the audit must be stated. 
    Audit report is not made for anybody’s consumption.
    For an ordinary person and a reporter/journalist who doesn’t posses a “professional appreciation” on the audit report, he/she would angle it according to his mediocre understanding, and the masa will digest it according to the current poltical atmosphere.  There’s always that subjectiveness of the timings on this kind of reportage.
    Hahahahahahaha!  One can relate it to the credits on the stock market, that when the stock is at all time high, “Hallelujah to Noynoy” would be the most likely comment by the reporter.  When the stock market plummets, “It must have been the rain”, is the usual comment by the same reporter.

As such, I’m one of us here who would like to see an honest-to-goodness investigation this time, see if there’s some truth to it, that it’s not just another form of justification to some grievous corrupt practice committed for the nth time against the Filipinos. We’ve always clamored for some fairness… to no avail.  Must be one of the reasons really, why they dont like to pass the FOI bill. Money gets traced, and they get no more reason to stay. But we hope we get to see some action, really, a transparent process to the inquiry/investigation, if the NGO and its president are real entities and not one of those concocted tales. Tsk tsk, heap all the blame on other people, confuse us mightily again, further leave the coffers poor by several millions just investigating #!

    By authority of the senate president – may be gigi who joined enrile’s office in 2008 – just new in the business and probably a little bit famished.

    It’s very unlikely that a genius like enrile would not know that his preferred project implementor – the Pangkamatayan Foundation Inc (PFI), is non-existing at that time.

    The COA findings must be investigated thoroughly NOT by the senatongs but by the Supreme Court, if possible, and let the public witness again another extravagansa where the jurists before will now become the accused – and the SC’s special prosecutor will be renato corona….
