UNA: COA report a demolition job on our leaders

A+

A-

The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) smells something fishy in a Commission on Audit (COA) report linking two of its leaders to the release of some P195 million in pork barrel to a bogus nongovernment organization.

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Senate President Pro Tempore Jinggoy Estrada were clearly the targets of the COA report published by the Inquirer on Thursday, said Rep. Toby Tiangco, the coalition’s campaign manager.

“They are leaders of UNA, and the clear intent is to hit our leaders hoping it would affect UNA candidates,” Tiangco said in a statement.

He said it was clearly an act of desperation. “But it also reveals their desperation,” he added, referring to President Aquino’s Liberal Party (LP).

Demolition work

“The demolition work against UNA leaders has intensified because the LP cannot deny what is happening on the ground: Big crowds are attending UNA rallies and sorties, while their political events are nilalangaw,” he said.

But Deputy Speaker Erin Tañada, an LP spokesperson, said the misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund was not about who disclosed it to the media but whether it was true.

“I think my friend, Representative (Toby) Tiangco misses the point,” Tañada said.

Tiangco insisted that Enrile and Estrada should not be the subject of campaign attacks, noting that they are not candidates.

But if this would be so, he said UNA could also return the favor to Sen. Franklin Drilon, his counterpart at the administration coalition.

“We could just as easily ask Sen. Franklin Drilon, their campaign manager, to answer the long-festering questions about his purchase of property in Forbes Park, but we won’t, because he is not a candidate,” he said.

Tiangco said the COA report was made public “without fail” in time for the elections “for obvious political purposes.”

“Without fail, complaints are filed in the Ombudsman against political personalities and candidates based on COA reports,” he said.

He said this year was no exception. “But what sets this election year apart from the previous elections is the eagerness with which the LP—the so-called party espousing a righteous path—has embraced the discredited practices of the Arroyo regime of harassing political enemies with trumped-up allegations which will not stand in a court of law.”—With a report from Norman Bordadora

    UNA don’t need any outside “contractor” for this demolition that is on-going.
    The personalities involved with UNA are themselves self -demolishing entities.
    Binay,Enrile, Estrada, Revilla…kunting kalkal pa, lalabas na lahat ng baho ng mga ito…
    Tiangco’s harking on such claims just dont carry any credibility.Tiangco  himself, had discredited whatever vestige of respect for himself…

    O, ayan sa bibig mo na rin nanggaling. Tama ka! Mageeleksyon e, di ipaliwanag ni Lolong Johnny at Jinggoy sa taumbayan kung gaano sila kalinis na mga senador at sabihin nilang hindi totoo ang akusasyon ng COA. Pero sa tuwi-tuwina, ay hindi nagsisinungaling ang numero. May basehan ang COA, kaya malakas ang loob nila na isiwalat sa publiko ang kanilang natuklasan, dahil alam nila na ang nilalandas nila ay ang tuwid na daan… Kaya pala ganun na lang kung ipagtanggol ni Jinggoy si Lolong Johnny, kasi partners pala sila sa pagdukot sa PDAF… Mga mandarambong!!! Bistado na kayo!!! Malansang isda ngayon kayo sa mata ng taumbayan…

  • linobog

    Rep. Tiangco ,……   is the report bogus?

  • Simplify1

    Tiangco claims that this new revelation of UNA leaders’ indiscretions are merely political motivated trumped-up allegations which will not stand up in the court of law.  This sounds so familiar… I think I remember a disgraced Chief Justice who once used this line of reasoning…. ano napala nya??

  • Concur_Dissent

    If UNA honestly believes that this is simply a demolition job initiated by the administration, their best course of action should be to respond directly to COA and prove its findings wrong.  Once they are cleared of any wrongdoing (which I highly doubt), they can turn the tables against whoever tried to pin them with this case…..

    In short, sagutin muna nila ang COA tapos resbak na lang sila kung mapatunayan nila na BOGUS and COA REPORT!!

  • farmerpo

    Kulang na lang sabihin ni Tiangco na dinadaya sila. Wala pang botohan yan. PR man ba talaga yang Tiangco na yan? Say something constructive for your team, anak. Walang mangyayari pag ang emphasis as sa kalaban, sila ang matatandaan. UNA ay HULI…. spin doctor, do your job.

    Is Toby suggesting that the integrity. morality, and honesty of party leaders and its candidates should not be considered during the campaign period?

    The president and his senatorial slate are not afraid to be scrutinized. But why is UNA screaming “political harassment,” “demolition job” “mudslinging” everytime the integrity, honesty, and experience of UNA is questioned?

    Can’t UNA present the integrity and honesty of their leaders? I thought at their launching they were boasting that they were the team to beat? Well, it turned out UNA is just a bunch of weaklings after all – weak in every sense of the word. No moral strength, no clear objectives just a bag of air! Ampao sabi nga ng mga insik! Kasi naman puro kahambugan lang ang tatlong inutil na hari nila!

    01. Mahinang spokesperson si Toby Tiangco. He should have read the COA report of 2012 and even those of prior years. Kahit yung executive summary lang available sa COA website. From those reports alone, he could have gathered more mud to sling back at LP.

    02. If there’s truth to Senator Drilon’s property in North Forbes, might as well expose him. The property is under the name of Drilon’s stepdaughter who works in Starbucks. How a coffee company employee can afford a multi-million property in North Forbes is a question Drilon cannot evade. She’s not married to the Tantocos, paano sya biglang yumaman?

    03. Why not dig deeper into Sonny Angara’s finances? Sonny Angara could afford to lose $500K to a Singaporean scam artist by the name of Michael Lim. On top of that, Sonny Angara even bought a nice house in Bel-Air on his meager salary as a legislator. To think he did not even work long in ACCRA to have earned enough for the Bel-Air property. Magkano na nga pala ang nagastos sa APECO up until yearend of 2012? A whopping P2 billion!

    04. Why not dig deeper into Bam Aquino’s campaign finances? How could a bum afford primetime TV ads when he was not gainfully employed the last few years since he left Studio 23? Bam Aquino could not have possibly hit the jackpot thru social entrepreneurship. His money’s gonna have to come from somewhere? And anyone who invested in his campaign will want the money back in one form or another some time later. Of course, with interest.

    05. If JPE’s ratings are pulling Jackie down and Jejomar’s ratings are pulling Nancy down, why not do the same to Chiz Escudero. His late father has lots of skeletons in the closet. Hindi naman siguro lingid sa kaalaman ni JPE yun. Sa panahon pa lang ni Marcos, marami na kayong mahahanap kay Salvador Escudero.

    06. Since PNoy and LP are playing hardball, UNA should return the favor. Dig deeper into the sale of Quezon Institute. Expose the sweetheart deals Alex Lopez received from PNoy. Alex Lopez is the ultimate KKK of PNoy, the classmate of PNoy from grade school to college. You won’t be disappointed if you go after this guy.

    07. Oh, and one more thing. Be careful of your phones. They may be tapped by the newly appointed ISAFP chief PNoy installed late last year. Despite his involvement in the Jonas Burgos case, he was still appointed for the job. JPE should know why.

  • Concur_Dissent

    There is nothing fishy about the COA report Mr. Tiangco…. amoy malansang bilasang isda lang talaga ang mga amo mo…

    UNA team can not claim any moral ascendency and ALL its candidates suffer the kiss of death for being identified with leaders who are confirmed PLUNDERERS, PHILANDERERS AND INTERLOPERS!!!

  • boi skater

    Instead of the UNA leaderships belittling and castigating COA
    (which is finally doing its job) and everyone else, they should investigate
    these senators in question and the bogus NGO, and try to find out what exactly
    happened to the people’s money. Stop covering up the fact that these senators
    wasted the people’s money yet again. The money is gone; exposing that fact is
    not a “demolition” job. It is a call for action to find the truth and punish
    those who took them, and correct the process so as to prevent similar events
    from happening again. The senators are to blame, period. Stop faulting others for this.That is the responsible and noble way.

If PDI is being selective on exposing these corrupt politicians, then call a spade a spade. Demand PDI to expose the whole COA Report. Huwag yung papa awa ka na lang tapos hindi nyo sasagutin yung issue na binabato sa inyo. Lalo kayong nagmu mukhang guilty. Kinakabahan na yang si Toby, susunod na sya at lalabas na yung mga katarantaduhan nya sa Navotas.

    A predictable reply of a corrupt. “Demolition Job”. Gasgas na gasgas na ang palusot na ito.

    My question to UNA, who used Bogus NGO as conduit for corruption? It is not Team Pnoy, It is UNA. It is Jinggoy, Enrile and Revilla.

    Who divulged this corruption? It is not Team Pnoy. It was COA. COA is an independent body tasked to do auditing job. It will reveal its findings for keeping the findings secret will be a cause of concern.

    In the next survey, zero na ang UNA. 

    But even if this corruption is not divulged by COA, the result is still the same  for the people are not aware how corrupt UNA is and it will be a disaster to allow UNA to grab the majority.

  • martin cruz

    Rep. Toby Tiangco’s reaction to the COA report is full of guile but utterly brainless.  Such evasive “squid” tactics no longer hold water today.  He is foolishly presuming that the Filipinos of today are as brainless as he is.  And the same is true with Honasan who insists on questioning the timing of the COA report instead of proving its truth or falsity.  Deviating from the subject is at once an admission of guilt.  It is flight from justice. 
    Election campaign period is the perfect time for the people to hear these allegations of wrongdoings by candidates. It is likewise or even more opportune for the candidates themselves being exposed of their wrongdoings to explain and justify their positions.

    TOBY TIANGCO: WHY DON’T YOU OR UNA SUE COA? 

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      True.  They should so that COA will disclose everything about 4 senators millions of kickback years back.

  • $19543087

    Cong. Tiangco instead of attacking the COA report as a demolition job why not assist in solving the truth.  Your kind of mentality that your leaders are being attacked so that your party candidates will lose in the election is pure childish or idiotic.  It is not only Enrile & Estrada that was mentioned in that report.  If you think people lost their trust in your party, it is because your party is full of scalawags!

  • Labandera1

    UNA just answer the allegations of the COA report which was based on facts and figures. UNA don’t go around the bush simple lang ang sagot “True or False” tapos idiots….

  • azkal futbol

    if COA report is a demolition job, UNA and tiangco have all the right to dispute. it will be a big news headline if they can contradict the report. unfortunately, these liars uses the demolition “excuse” and “no control” over funds turnover. 100 millions of peoples money put to waste and these b.s. senatong never made it their responsibility to ensure right delivery to responsible ngo’s. we’ve been the milking cow of these thieves and liars, UNA talaga sa kalokohan at kasinungalingan.

         Alam mo, ini-audit ng COA lahat yan, kung sino yun may anomalya syempre yun ang ire-report nila, alangan naman na sasabihin nila may anomalya kay Loren Legarda kung malinis naman, hindi porke nakitaan ng anomalya kina Jinggoy at Enrile hindi ibig sabihin sila lang ang ini-imbestigahan, ang kitid naman ng utak nyo at sasabihin demolition job…eh nataon lang na may nakita sila.

      • maypakialamtayo

        hindi rin ako pabor sa pinag-gagawa ng tatlong senador at isang kongresista, kaya lang dapat transparent kahit walang anomalya ibahagi naman satin, ngayon kung maka-pag bigay ka kahit isang senador na ini-audit nila pabor ako sa sinasabi mo, hindi komo walang nagreklamo ay hindi na i-o-audit, kaya nga ayaw nilang ipasa ang FOI bill dahil karamihan sa kanila (senador at kongresista) ay ayaw ilantad kung ano ang pinag-gagawa nila.

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        Lacson requested that all senators expenses audited.  Remember before the house recess because of Sen. Santiago and Lacson accusing each other?

        COA has audited the senators and found these fake NGO recommended by Enrile.  This is the result of the audit. 

        Enrile, Estrada, Revilla and Velarde signed their millions pork to a fake NGO.  Remember, Enrile is good at faking or staging anything. 
        I never doubted this one as one of his handiwork.  The millions funneled back to these senators pockets.  Don’t be a fool, never trust these crocodilian politicians.

    This is not a demolition job.  This is the result of COA audits of the senate requested by Lacson.  Enrile, Estrada, Revilla and Velarde are using fake NGO to funnel back millions of pork barrel back to their own pockets.

    Enrile is good at faking anything.  Enrile and Estradaare of the same feather. 
    More Enrile, Estrada and Revilla in the senate if you vote for their political dynasties.  If they all get into the senate, say goodbye to your billions.  This country will be in the doormat again.  Don’t forget Binay has a daughter running for the senate,  UNA is turning us into a cash cow.

  • Handiong

    As far as the Filipino people are concerned, any time is a good time to make public COA reports.

    Let COA bare its reports on all senators and congressmen, regardless of political affiliation, whether it’s election time or not, whether there’s a FOI law or none. That’s the very essence of transparency.

    Let COA exercise its constitutional powers in the true service of the sovereign people.

  • Mr Moonlight

     whether its demolition job or not, the fact of the matter is those 3 senators enrile, jinggoy, bong revila plus one congressman did something that warrants a good explanation from them,,
    well, just look at the make up of UNA senatorial candidates:
    Binay- no substantial work experience except that her father asked her to run for the simple reason  is that she is BINAY
    Jackie Enrile– known for being hot tempered, cold blooded serial killer, rumored to have raped amalia fuenters daughter
    Maceda— oh my,, notororiously known corrupt, laos na laos na, the word TRAPO was coined after him
    JV Ejercito– son of plunderer, immoral, ex president, whose mother is one of the many mistresses of erap
    Mitos Magsaysay– motormouth as-kisser, loyalist GMA who conveniently carry the name of former president who was well-loved by filipinos
    Zubiri—- cheated Koko Pimentel, the evidence was so great that he had to quit as senator, another GMA rahrahrah boys
    Honasan– well, what else can you say about this self proclaimed edsa 1 hero, a dashing adventurer who repeatedly tried to overthrow a legitimate government,, another Enrile diciple,
    this guy championed the rights of squatters to grab the land from landowners
    Tingting Cojuangco- she was virtually disowned by P-Noy, pangggulo lang
    The names mentioned above are despicable .enough Do your own country a favor by not voting for these malignant minded senatorial candidates

Long before the election campaign and selection of candidates your UNA LEADERS have already TARNISHED CHARACTER and INTEGRITY!!! Your UNA leaders are the 3 KINGS: KING of CORRUPTION . . . KING of PLUNDER . . . KING of POLITICAL DYNASTY or as you call them now, BIG3: BIG in CORRUPTION . . . BIG in PLUNDER . . . BIG in POLITICAL DYNASTY!!!

    As campaign manager, you should be strategizing an EFFECTIVE, GOOD, and COHERENT POLITICAL MESSAGE to the Filipino people, so they would embrace your candidates!!! At the moment you are a PATHETIC CAMPAIGN MANAGER who is a DISTRACTION rather an ATTRACTION to the FILIPINO VOTERS.

    WAKE UP and GROW UP, CLOWN!!!

  • mavtan

    Idiotic Toby TyanKo mUNA. COA is not directly accusing the senators involved in these fiasco. COA’s report is very necessary to reveal the real culprit which is the NGO PFI. We should appreciate report like this, since this will become a turning point of how our lawmaker should be wary of illegitimate NGOs. If in the end, someone was identified as the culprit they should be charged.

    What does the UNA stand for? They support the President’s plans over all but stand as the opposition to it. They have a problem with the auditors finding irregularities and blame the Liberal Party. They refuse to take a pure line on Arroyo-era corruption and even have past beneficiaries of it in their candidate list.
    The UNA stand for nothing but themselves. They have no agenda except their own re-election.

  • tabingbakod

    Eh, kung ipinapaliwanag ba naman ng mga lider ng UNA kung saan napunta yung pera eh di nag backfire (kung totoo man) yung demolition job.

    Wala naman maipaliwanag yung mga sangkot na politiko. Ayaw na ayaw na nga ng publiko sa pork barrel hindi pa inaalagaan ng mga gunggong yung pera na pinagkatiwala sa kanya. Milyon milyon na pera wala silang alam na kalsada, classroom, o magsasaka na nakinabang.

    Sama pa nun, sinisira nila ang reputasyon ng COA ng walang proweba. Yung COA mukhang ginagawa nila yung trabaho nila, yung mga politiko na sangkot lumalabas na hindi.

    Here we go, a political group trying to find excuses for their poor showing. It’s just an audit report Tiangco, that’s all, these reports come out on a regular basis. And even it were timed to elicit negative comments on the UNA candidates- so what? Don’t these people realize they are in the political game and this is the Philippines? Had all these people wanted a quieter more ‘normal’ life then they should have pursed other careers, opened flower shops or something. I cannot imagine the report is false for a start, nor can I imagine auditors sitting around making up things just to annoy UNA. On which point, faced with their candidates, what are people supposed to do with their vote if they do not support Aquino’s administration? Give it to Binay’s daughter? -who is another one complaining all the time about people attacking her father,- who is not even up for anything at the present,- and he started all of this by announcing that all Ms Binay needed to become a candidate and a Senator was Binay’s family name and if it was good enough for him it should be good enough for the rest of us!! And there’s Enrile’s offspring in the melee as well, doing the same thing ! Aren’t we trying to get rid of this sort of third word feudal system? It really doesn’t work… And now we are told there are Senators who ‘don’t know’ where they spend millions of public money ? We are expected to believe this ?

    It’s the height of hypocrisy for these”honorable kuno”senators led by JPE to investigate their own
    devilish shadow & come up with honest-to-goodness audit findings.  It is of public knowledge that JPE is a big (repeat BIG) liar faking his car ambush the night before martial law was declared not
    to mention his IMMORAL (nakakasuka) distribution of senate MOOE funds as x’mas cash gift to senators UNMINDFUL of the sufferings of “Typhoon Pablo” victims & also the on-going rampant illegal smuggling of high-end used cars right in his own backyard at Port Irene, Cagayan.

    The LP is desperate daw?  And UNA is not? I thought the LP was winning.. 9 candidates in the Magic 12..while UNA only had 3. Tiangco’s brain is sure wired differently.

    And Tiangco should be reminded that it was they who threw the first punches. The LP is only reacting. Sorry, guys, but if you’re looking for a mudslinging fight, you will never win it. Too many skeletons in your UNA closet. Your house is but a house of cards.

    Tiangco says they have more people in their rallies? But of course. People love the circus. And who wouldn’t love to see three kings and jesters prance around on stage doing the Gangnam?

    Tanada is right by saying that this tiongco misses the point. The point there is whether what COA found to be irregular is people’s money being used for nothing but for their own personal benefits. Tiongco should ask the four involved on this shenanigans to explain how they do that and where did they actually conceal or spend our money.

    A FORMER whistleblower in high-profile graft corruption controversies turned-head of government’s financial watchdog yesterday linked the wife of Vice President Jejomar Binay, an incumbent and several former Makati City officials to alleged deception in the public bidding for a Php72.06 million supply contract awarded by the city government in 2001.

Before Pinoy Gossip Boy can identify which presidential candidate has a sex video, Pinoy Gossip Boy sourced a link via Twitter to a WordPress blog against vice-presidential candidate Jejomar Binay.

    The former mayor now( Vice President)was charged in 2006 for allegedly bypassing the bidding procedure in favor of Office Gallery International Inc. 

    Binay was questioned over the anomalous purchase of office fixtures and furniture for the new Makati City Hall from private contractor Office Gallery International from December 1999 to February 2000. The contract was allegedly overpriced by P3.6 million.

    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.

    President Joseph E. Estrada violated the Constitution and stands guilty of graft and corruption when he directly requested or received for his personal benefit P130 million out of the P200 million released by Secretary Benjamin Diokno of the Department of Budget and Management allocated under R. A. 7171 in violation of Section 3(c) of R. A. 3019, as may be seen from the affidavit of Luis C. Singson, provincial governor of Ilocos Sur, dated September 25, 2000 (Annex “B” hereof). 
    President Joseph E. Estrada violated the Constitution and stands guilty of graft and corruption when he participated directly in the real estate business thru family-controlled corporation which constructed 36 townhouses in Vermont Park, Executive Village, Antipolo City, as shown in the PCIJ in the article on President Joseph E. Estrada’s family and financial interest. He also violated the Anti-Graft Law he is sworn to uphold. He filed his Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the year 1999, stating therein that he and his wife and children have business interests in only three (3) corporations. The President by that sworn statement also committed perjury and the offense of unexplained wealth because records show that he and his wife and mistresses and their children have other interests in other companies outside of the firms listed in his Statement of Assets and Liabilities.

    Reaction of Toby Tiangco is a clear indications that he is afraid of what will be the result come mid term election. Tiangco must open his mind that a true leader must be honest and face any consequences unlike as what is reacting like a coward dog.

    In fairness, this is the time of the year for submission of audit reports/aoms. It so happens that the ongoing election activity coincides. Politics aside, the system of pork barrel should be abolished if only legislators are negligence in the use of their pork barrel. Its such a waste of money to the Agriculture Department which is notorious in fund misuse with the fertilizer fund scam of Jocjoc, when the cash may be used for much needed defense assets esp. with brewing tensions with China and Malaysia, or housing for the poor particularly, tenement building.

    It is not a demolition job because I think the force that can penetrate  the thick skin of a Filipino politician is yet to be invented. They are indestructible. The only way to eradicate them is by population control by not voting their kind- children and relatives- this coming May elections.

    “The demolition work against UNA leaders has intensified because the LP cannot deny what is happening on the ground: Big crowds are attending UNA rallies and sorties, while their political events are nilalangaw” Toby Tianco

    JInggoy is not one of the  3 kings of UNA, no need to demolish him. For Enrile’s personality it cannot be demolished kasi wala ng natirang matino para meron pang maidemolish

    this is VERY TRUE AND NOT A DEMOLITION JOB. I should know because I am a department head from one of the lgus’ here in Mindanao. We received last Dec.28, 2012, the last day transaction of the year, the amount of P10 MILLION from Department of Agriculture and it is coming from PDAF of Senator Enrile. When the check was released from DA a person approach our collector presenting to him (collector) a pro-forma MOA/U for the LGU to enter into contract with a certain identified NGO based there in imperial manila when in fact the project/program will be implemented here in mindanao. The release of the fund has no specific work and financial plan for implementation coming from the donor agency(DA) nor from the sponsoring senator. For now we are in quandary on how to go about the disbursement which we deemed suspicious in nature.

    • palakasantayo

      This is no brainer… with an electronic highly efficient tracking system now a days, this case should be solved in a very short time. Just hold on to the 10M right now and wait who will claim it back. If those NGOs are non-existent, report says, then the sponsor will ask for its return. Once the fund is returned to the sponsor, the sponsor can disburse it at will to whoever – including himself. Then on the sponsor’s sheet, it would show the PDAF fund was released to a deserving party but, the return will not be documented. Simple modus operandi… my opinion. . 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PN3VRDYP7ZZDTUHWG5R7RJSXWM raul n

     may I add, that there are more than 3 lgus’ i know of but some of them return the funds because of its murky nature of disbursement and they do not like to be hitch with problems in the future.

    UNA has self-destructed before it was even formed.

    Ang pambabae at paglalasing ni Erap, not to mention ang pangongolekta nya ng jueteng money kung saan sya ay naconvict; ang pamumudmud ni Enrile ng pera ng bayan para sa kanyang mga kakampi sa senado at pagsisinungaling tungkol sa pekeng ambush; ang pangungulimbat ni Binay sa makati at pangongotong sa mga malalaking developers.

    At ngayon ang pagpapatakbo sa kani-kanilang mga anak sa senado para pag nanalo ay maprotektahan ang kani kanilang mga amang kurakot.

    Actually, sa mga kasong ito lang di na kailangan ng demolition job. Tutumba na sila sa sarili nilang mga kalawang at bulati sa tyan.

    Hindi rin naman santo ang LP, pero pag itinabi mo sa UNA nagmumukhang anghel ang LP.
