Jack Enrile: Demolition job is to derail my plan to expose a gov’t project

A+
A
A-

(Following is the full statement of Rep. Jack Enrile on his alleged involvement in the 1975 death of Ernest Lucas Jr.)

First and foremost, I’d like to state categorically that I had nothing to do with the incident in 1975 wherein Ernest Lucas Jr. was killed. This matter was investigated by police authorities. Charges were filed, the case was properly heard in courts, and the suspect was tried and later sentenced to 12 years in prison which he served.

My father who was then defense minister offered to resign his position in order to avoid suspicions of pressure or influence on those who had jurisdiction over the case. When his offer was turned down, he went on official leave and left for Japan until the investigation was concluded.

The statements of the late former US Ambassador to the Philippines linking me to the killing were based on mere speculation and hearsay as the WikiLeaks report itself will bear this out. He was, at that time, known to be against the administration, and that incident provided him an opportunity to embarrass the Marcos administration and cast a high government official and his son in a negative light with Washington.

All documents submitted to the court prove the falsity of the allegations that were based on rumors.

That this is being resurrected and circulated at this time when I am running for senator is highly suspect. Some well-meaning friends have suggested that I file appropriate cases against those who are using that incident to harass me. But I would rather not be distracted as my conscience is clear and my mind is set on pursuing my advocacies for food security and fair prices for the consuming public to help our people and our country.

There are also reports that this demolition job is being done in order to derail my plan to look into and expose a government project that is highly questionable and grossly disadvantageous to the public.

It will no longer be surprising, therefore, if some other fabrications and vicious stories are hurled against me and my teammates in the course of this campaign.

However, I deeply regret the fact that such moves have had a serious effect on my father’s health. At 89 years of age, he is suffering from severe hypertension and serious vision impairment. I feel for my ailing father who has been agonizing in silence, seeing me suffer all these unfair attacks as a result of old and deep-seated grudges against him. My old man does not deserve all these. He has served this country well.

But I refuse to be intimidated. I will not be stopped.

    Mr Enrile, raising of these issues at this time IS NOT SUSPICIOUS. The majority of pinoys did not care so much about these issues because you were then a congressman. It was Cagayan Valleys call to question these THEN. But now that you’re running for a senate seat, these issues automatically becomes front and centre of who you are!

    Your character has time and again come up in the negatve light. Although the intelligent voters may give you the benefit of the doubt, we prefer to look elsewhere for people who have no direct contamination on their records….

    Jackie, remember Echegaray (Bless his soul)? Just few seconds before he was executed, he said he was not guilty while all the evidence and the his victim herself said he raped her.

    Jackie, go and ask the convicts in Muntnglupa and all the jails in the country, 99.99% will tell you, they are free of any any crime.

    Go and ask your another idol Erap who was convicted of plunder and he will tell you he did not commit any crime.

    See what I mean? Criminals are not only killers. They are also liars.

    Just like them, you said you did not kill Lucas, in the same way you denied the killing of Anido.

    All criminals are like that. No criminals admit any wrongdoings. It is easy for a corrupt politicians to deny and to call crimes as political harassment It is easy to lie to high heavens that he is clean.

    But the people are learning now. All the surveys show that you are going to lose big time. That’s good news for us. WE can accept plagiarist, bopol, stupid, sira -ulo and 1 killer in the present senate. But to add 1 more killer will be crazier.

    JACKIE SHOULD BE SENT TO MUNTINGLUPA INSTEAD OF SENATE!!!

    I challenge Jackie and Juan Ponce Enrile to make their denials strapped to a polygraph machine.

    Among henchmen, 12 years in prison with you family well taken care off and with prospects of a better life when you come out on account of willingly taking the fall is not exactly a bad proposition. It is even welcome. This contention of Jackie that it could not be him who killed the victim since somebody went to jail for 12 years does not hold water.

    The Enriles father and son have blood in their hands and running down the side of their mouths. One murderer from the Enrile family in the Senate is enough. Let’s join forces to block the candidacy of Jackie Enrile!

    What was the general public reaction to Jackie Enrile getting away with murder?

    20-Sep-1975 (Sat) Ernest Lucas was killed.
    28-Sep-1975 (Sun) Press prints JPE’s letter of request for leave*
    06-Oct-1975 (Mon) Chief State Prosecutor decides no charges vs Jackie**

    In 10 business days, the uber-efficient Chief State Prosecutor Nocon decided in great haste not to file charges against Jackie Enrile. Defense Secretary Enrile himself had one full week from the date of murder until his “voluntary” leave took effect to mop up evidence, to silence loose lips, to tie loose ends and make sure that his son got off the hook.

    Although Jackie Enrile was ultimately let off the hook, his father’s prestige and standing within the inner circle of Marcos may have been diminished by this murder case. The possible loss of confidence, albeit partial, of Marcos in JPE may have also tipped the balance of power in favor of the Imelda faction, the long-standing rival of JPE within the Marcos circle.***

    Q&A No. 1

    Is there really a demolition job against Jackie Enrile or this is just the ghost of his dark past coming back to haunt him?

    To be sure, the cables sent by the US Embassy to the State Department in Washington in September 1975 were not intended to destroy Jackie Enrile. In fact, the cables were released by WikiLeaks and not by the US State Department. These cable messages are not being resurrected nor recirculated for they were never publicly available until WikiLeaks came along. Vast majority of Filipinos have never seen or read these documents. Besides, the US Embassy could not have foreseen that Jackie Enrile will one day be running for national office. One thing former Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan did foresee was how this mishandled case of homicide will come back to haunt Enrile the Elder and Enrile the Younger in the future. In the words of WLS:

    “Despite immediately favorable disposition of Enrile Jr’s (Jackie) case, Enrile’s (JPE) name has been tarnished somewhat, and (this) incident does provide residual weapon that could be used against him in future.” — sent 07-Oct-1975

    If Jackie Enrile is looking for someone to blame, he should blame WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for shedding light on his dark past.

    Q&A No. 2

    Is Jackie Enrile being singled out by then US Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan in his cable messages to the State Department in Washington?

    While there is reason to believe that Jackie Enrile was famous in those days for the wrong reasons, there’s no indication that Jackie Enrile has become so important in international affairs that he had to be singled out by the US Embassy’s data gathering machine. In fact, a cable sent by the former ambassador on 26-Sep-1975 contains an equally scandalous criminal case involving the sons of the rich and famous. On 19-Sep-1975, a day before Jackie Enrile allegedly murdered Ernest Lucas, the heir of the Lopez clan Gabby Lopez III and the grandson of then DFA Secretary Romulo figured in a rape case in Forbes Park, the victim being a girl afflicted with polio and drugged into submission before being raped. The case was hushed up and nothing was heard about it thereafter. In our country, it is always fair to surmise that money did work in mysterious ways as it still does today. The poor victim was never heard from again.

  • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

    Q&A No. 3

    Why did victim’s family not charge Jack Enrile?

    The answer is simple. 10 business days after the murder incident, the surprisingly uber-efficient Chief State Prosecutor Nocom decided in great haste not to file charges against Jackie Enrile. The decision to let Jackie Enrile off the hook diametrically contradicts what the NBI sources of the US Embassy at that time alleged.

    In the cable of then US Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan to the State Department, “NBI sources have told us (US Embassy) unequivocally, and contrary to Sec. Enrile’s assurances to Ambassador, that Enrile’s son did the shooting . . . “

    With the system, the state’s resources stacked against the victim’s family, paano pa sila papalag? Of course, moro-moro lang ang investigation.

    Q&A No. 4

    How reliable are US Embassy information, especially those coming from then US Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan?

    It is true that WLS was not a big fan of the Marcoses and his cabal of cronies. It is also true that whatever WLS wrote in his cable messages were primarily for the consumption of Washington. As such, the cable messages were written in the interest and for the interest of the US by an interested US ambassador in Philippine affairs. WLS is not entirely without bias and has a habit of allowing his literary flair to sometimes jazz up what were supposed to be staid bureaucratic reports. Be that as it may, he was also careful to separate facts from personal opinions judging by the content and format of his cable messages. Had the Enrile father and son allowed the due process of the law to take its own course back in 1975, they could have addressed the undying speculations surrounding the case.

    Q&A No. 5

    Are the US Embassy cables to Washington always fair?

    It depends. It depends on who you ask and what’s being said about you. The cables of then US Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan containing unflattering depictions of the Marcos regime in 1975 were by no means unique. Nor were they singling out the Marcos dictatorship just for fun. As recent as 2009 and 2010, former US Ambassador Kristie Kenney also sent cable messages carefully describing the strengths and weaknesses of each presidentiables at that time. PNoy would not be pleased to read the profile of him rendered by Ambassador Kenney. Of all people, Ambassador Kenney was most impressed by the intellect and depth of Gilbert Teodoro (and rightly so, if I may add). Here are some excerpts:

    On Aquino“Previous contacts with Senator Aquino, often accompanying his mother, former President Cory Aquino, left the impression of a diffident, unassertive man continuing a political tradition handed on by his parents but not carving out his own legacy. . . “ *

    On TeodoroTeodoro has many positive attributes, including an impressive intellect, an excellent grasp of policy and strong public speaking skills, but he clearly lacks natural talent for and interest in the glad-handing and backroom dealing that so often characterize politics . . . . . . . . . . **

      The problem with some of these Western ambassadors is that they think they are experts on everything – including on human personalities. This is particularly the case when they are dealing with Asians whom they feel they are superior to.

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        The year was 1975. Asia was still largely poor and looked down upon by its former colonizers in the West. Some Asian countries were still mired in postcolonial conflict internally. Vietnam just kicked out their American colonizers. China was just on the heels of its devastating Cultural Revolution and beginning to take stock of the catastrophic damage it wrought on its people and economy. East Timor was absorbed by Indonesia after Portugal had to let it go. The threat or hyped up threat of communism was still very much in the air. Western ambassadors as you correctly pointed out arrived in Asia feeling high and mighty, bringing with them all their preconceived and condescending notions of non-white people as they often did in those days, and perhaps still do to this day. You are also right in pointing out that Western ambassadors did get quite a few things wrong. This very same US Ambassador William Leahy Sullivan was involved in the secret US war in Laos and misjudged the situation there. Furthermore, he was stationed in Tehran when the Shah met his downfall. Ambassador WLS was completely clueless and did not see the Iranian Revolution coming. Suffice it to say, his contempt for Marcos, Imelda and Enrile are well documented in his cable messages. In fairness to him, his cable messages are just as contemptuous of Ninoy Aquino, the Lopez Oligarch and the Osmenas.

    Really…….why not investigate your own father for all the anomalies and corruptions he has done. Just check your own province who had built it’s own port. Guess who is using that port for their own gain. What about the money your father distributed to the senators. Where do you think those money came from. We can go on and on but it’s a waste of time because people already knows what kind of politicians we’re dealing with. So, before you tell the people that you’re going to clean up something, clean up your own backyard first. Include your father because he has a lot to answer to the people…….being hypocrite is what I see on you…….Jr.

  • jose b. taganahan

    I am not an apologist for Jackie Enrile and at first I am not inclined to vote for him but because of this issue i might just vote for him. I believe that the crime that happened 38 years ago should have been brought in to the open in 1987 at the height of the Cory magic which only Enrile and Erap survived out of the 24 senatorial slate in that election year. But then as now there is nobody who come into the open that would testify in Court that they saw it was Jackie Enrile who shot and killed the victim in 1975. The complaint will not even pass the Prosecutor’s office in 1987 or today without a credible witness that would pin down Jackie Enrile as the trigger man. So all these bruhaha in the press is just a trial by publicity against the father and son Enrile.

    Clearly the cases against Echegaray and other convicted criminals who swear their inoocence after being convicted by a Court of law is different form the case about Jackie Enrile who i believed until today was never accused in a Court of law an yet those Enrile haters would want him to be imprisoned in Muntinglupa without trial.

      How could you bring a murder case against Jack Enrile when all of the pieces of evidence were completely destroyed and all the witnesses silenced with death threats or money. Remember the old Enrile, sabi nila, was a good lawyer so he knows what to do to make not only a trial fail but first the preliminary investigation. In this case of Jack Enrile, you either believe he did it (if you already lived in 1975 as a young man and heard about the rumors being said in whispers) or you dont believe that he did it, that is, your were not born yet.

No matter the documents you presented in court that you are innocent your conscience (if you still have) will still bother you to the very end. This maybe the reason why souls go to hell after the life regression right after death it is because up there you still deny it was you who did it and that’s when you will hate God or the Divine Light.

    “He never wanted [to pursue the claim] in the first place… It is not possible for them to take such positions and speak against their own people if they are not on the take,” he said.
    When asked what he would do if he is slapped with libel cases due to his accusations against Aquino, David said: “I would welcome it provided I will be given a day in court.”

    will not stop telling the public the big (repeat the BIG) gap between what you’re saying vs the track record of your father: 1) He was the martial law administrator &
    #1 human rights violator, EDSA fake hero, fake car ambush to justify declaration of
    martial law, immoral relationship w/ his COS Gigi, immoral distribution of senate’s
    MOOE funds to senators as x’mas gift UNMINDFUL of the sufferings of Typhoon

The problem is there are too many skeletons in his closet that it is very difficult to believe him…One murder charge would have been enough to destroy ones reputation but with Jack, there are now reported three or more coming out! PLEASE DON’T vote for JACK. The ENRILE legacy shoud end once JPE steps down from the senate.

    • buttones

      Exactly right, if ones father holds one of the most senior posts in government then he is in a very good position to expose this ‘project’. The question is, is there a project at all, it seems to me Jack will exchange his ‘project’ for a few votes…

  • glg_ph

    the issues raised against you sir is because you run as senator and people need to know who you are. the wiki leaks expose’ carries weight because it is a situation report and is more truthful compared to the police and judicial system we had during the marcos-enrile years. what surprised me most is that you blame other persons such as those behind your so called anomalous projects, sir, you reacted like your father, ready with dossiers when crossed.

  • buttones

    Looking at the comments so far this is certainly not Jack’s fan club…in fact I’ve read very little about people who think Jack is a good boy and worth of voting for. On the murder case, if it is the case that the murderer served his time of 12 years, at a time when the death penalty was in force for murder, [which sounds odd anyway] where is this guy now? Maybe a brave investigative journalist can track him down to see how he’s doing? Or did the guy manage to retire comfortably after his prison term?

    I’m personally not voting for ‘Jack’, not because he might have been a murderer, but just like his father, this guy gives me the creeps, irrational I know but there you go…On Jack’s father’s health, it’s not because of the attacks on his dear son, it’s because HE IS 89 YEARS OLD FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!

  • teraytaray

    Yeah right, Jackie, that this issue “is being resurrected and circulated at this time” is really “highly suspect” because Mr. Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, probably thought you are soooo important in world affairs that he singularly targeted you for a “demolition job”. You really, really should consider filing appropriate charges – as suggested by your “well-meaning friends” (I’m starting to laugh here) – against Mr. Assange.

    But before you do, I have one question for you (with apologies to The Professional Heckler because I borrowed the following line from his blog): What is the etymology of the word ‘presumptuous’?

    But he could be right on one thing, that there is this government project under the LTO that’s being bid out regarding the new license plate scheme which I think is highly onerous in favor of the proponents. This has not reached the level of PNoy yet but some schemers in LTO have their hands deeply into it.

    I want PNoy to know about it so he can block and cancel its implementation but I do not have the copy of the pertinent docs yet, but I always have a way to get them. I just need time and patience.

At saka bakit nila gustong kumandidato at mahalal sa puwesto ganoong wala naman silang pagmamalasakit at pagmamahal sa Pilipinas at mga Pilipino? Dahil ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas ang napakadaling pagnakawan at pagkakitaan ng milyun-milyon at bilyun-bilyong piso o dolyar. Sila Zobel de Ayala nga at Henry Sy, bago naging mga bilyonaryo ay katakut-takot na pagsisikap at paghihirap ang dinanas sa loob ng maraming taon bago narating ang kinalalagyan nila ngayon, samantalang itong mga pulitikong mga magnanakaw at maiitim ang mga budhi ay mag-papabuting image lang at magbabayad ng milyun-milyon sa survey para maihanda na o mai-kondisyon ang isip ng mga tao na winnable nga sila para oras na sila ay mandaya ay kapani-paniwala ang kanilang panalo. Isa rin itong pang-inganyo sa mga tao para sila iboto dahil may mga botante na ayaw masayang ang kanilang boto kung kaya’t iyong nagta-top sa mga polls ang ibinoboto.

    Malakas ang loob nitong mga mamamatay-tao at magnanakaw na mga kandidato dahil nababayaran nila ang mga mahihirap na botante para sila iboto. Hindi magbabago ang ating gobyerno at mauupo ang katulad nila Enrile, Binay, Estrada, Arroyo, at Marcos. Napakadali kasing nakawan at biktimahin ang Pilipinas, kaya’t para itong magnet sa mga magnanakaw. Lahat halos ng mga Pilipinong nakapuwesto sa gobyerno ay magnanakaw.

  • whyinthisworld

    You mean jacky you’re going to expose a questionable government project? So why not just do it now. People might be happy to know and who behind this criminal act. Maybe you can get 1/2 vote from me once you prove it. But be sure to also expose the source of your family treasure.

  • Amboy123

    Because you’re a natural born killer….got away with murder…

  • Amboy123

    This killer in another article admitted having spent 30M in pre-election campaign… that means when he gets elected he has to recoup that money plus interest and more and more… just what his father is doing…

  • James McTangay

    JACKass Enrile..if you have the evidence EXPOSE the project. What are you waiting for? You are not in the showbiz where everything is by the script. If this government project is really that “highly questionable and grossly disadvantageous to the public” why wait for election day? Puro ka met salawasaw.

  • Natx Bacalzo

    nice try.

  • likemike

    Please ask everybody you know not to vote for Enrile!

  • calixto909

    Every time an expose of evil acts hugged the dailies, the culprit uses the catchphrase demolition job as alibi to deviate attention from the facts unraveled. Hoping and praying that the voters are wise to use their common senses and not their emotions to pity the culprit or say that every politician were raised from the same flock

  • Anggoy

    To the elder Enrile I had forgiven him because of what he has done during EDSA1, although some would argue that he has no choice but to go againts MARCOS during that time. Again during the CORONA impeachment he make me feel vindicated with those masterful handling of trial and once again i feel proud being a filipino. But his son is a different story
    NO TO JACK ENRILE in senate!!!!!

    • indiosbravos2002

  • josh_alexei

    The former Ambassador reports to the State Department was confidential and it was not intended to be EXPOSED by the Wikileaks (there was no such thing when the reports were made) soo what Demolition job this Jack the Beanstalk is talking about? Was he that Important in the whole scheme of things that people from somewhere even stop what they were doing to spare time to demolish him? He just happened to be some very NOTORIOUS individual during the time with soo much ego and bravado and everything to Prove, including getting away with Murder and rape and by gosh he got away from it all…and just like many of the men and women before, he might as well follow their footstep…there was Marcos, convicted and imprisoned for Murder..(was that nightscooping some political opponent of Pa?) Senator Ping, for the disappearance of Dacer and Corbito? Papa Enrile for his dramatic staging of ambush as an excuse to put the country in the state of martial law? These are just a few of the very “distinguished” individuals who can fool the voters, most of the times and perhaps all the time…

  • wawa2172

    Jackie Enrile was cleared by the court, so case dismissed. Dacer-Corbito case dismissed by the court of appeals, the result Ping Lacson is cleared with all charges. It’s election time so all issues crop up. Do I favor Enrile, No. Whatever the court says, I respect. Father Reyes may not agree with the court decision but his comments are not the facts that would find Enrile a guilty person.

  • jga94

    We all know what kind of courts we have….esp. during Martial Law….and we all know how powerful certain people were during those times….kaya nga never again….kasi people drown themselves in power…..

    “There are also reports that this demolition job is being done in order to derail my plan to look into and expose a government project that is highly questionable and grossly disadvantageous to the public.”

    Antagal mo ng nasa Congress ha…..may expose ka ba noon?!

    “I feel for my ailing father who has been agonizing in silence, seeing me suffer all these unfair attacks as a result of old and deep-seated grudges against him. My old man does not deserve all these. He has served this country well.”

    Eh anak ka kasi…..anong …he has served this country well…” baka he has served himself well…o kaya the country has served your family well……your father is a liar and an opportunist at the very least……that much has been proven over the years…..

  • suburbanmother

    Avoid voting for this guy!

  • sanjuan683

    Sa tingin ko mas malinis pa si Corona kaysa sa mag-ama Enrile. O ngayon nalantad ang mga kalokohan ninyong mag-ama. Pwe!!!!!!!

    • indiosbravos2002

      I have serious doubts if Enrile was really going against Corona. I think it was pressure that made him vote, otherwise plus the fact thst he voted last gave him ample time to rethink his position. So sorry na lang Coronakot.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Wahaha. Failed denial. Yon lang masasabi ko. If this was based on a local paper expose, I might have doubts pero it came from Wikileaks based on declassified documents ng US governmentt. Those info are hard to deny. Likewise, nobody saw this coming. Not the administration and certainly not Enrile. So, ying claim nya ng expose kuno ay questionable. Baka naman galng yan sa Baul ng tatay nya tulad nong utang daw ni Cayetano. Hehehe.

  • sky explorer

    As I read Jackie’s defense, I can’t help but wonder, where’s the bodyguard who was imprisoned for 12 yrs,? Were they paid a wholesome amount to be silenced?…I pity them…but power, guns and goons…he had no choice but to accept to be the fallout guy…or else he will be killed…coz aside from the Marcoses, the Enrile family were one of the most powerful during the martial law era….but as they say you can run but you can’t hide. It will haunt you up to your grave. And whatever you say, nobody will believe you.

    Senate position? wow, there’s pork barrel there that’s why you covet it…No way Jose…you will just rob it and put it in Port Irene…guys, you know…SO, PLS DON’T VOTE FOR JACKIE and NANCY BINAY et al….

    Survey says….thumbs down for ENRILE AND U.N.A…

  • Beguine

    Hopeless case named Jackie Enrile.

    The Filipinos who value truth and honesty are not that stupid to vote for him. And his father has already a place waiting in a short while in you know where.

    Really? Expose a govt project? Come on Jack, you’re not really known for that. You’re actually known for your absenteeism in Congress. If you didn’t bear your father’s last name, like Nancy Binay, you’ll be virtually unknown.

  • jga94

    I will make a conscious effort to avoid voting for persons belonging to political dynasties—worst are the Binays, Ejercitos and Enriles (grabe itong 3 tatlong ito–lalo na sila Binay at Ejercito—ganid sa pwesto)….not too far behind are the Cayetanos(altho I would vote for Pia anytime, amybe not her brother) and Aquinos (I wish Bam would have had the delicadeza to have just waited until his uncle’s term finished) and to a certain extent the Villars.

    I do not consider Jun Magsaysay part of a political dynasty–Mitos is just not a Magsaysay and if there’s a Magsaysay that should be in a position–it’s Jun Magsaysay

  • diamond_digger

    Tama ka, Jackie! Don’t be intimidated and neither should you stop. If you were able to escape from the clutches of the laws when your dad was only the defense minister, how much more today when he, as Senate President is the third highest official of the land – just the president and vice president above him. Show them you still have the capacity to pull the trigger in front of many eyewitnesses. Am certain though, you already have a place in hell waiting for you, prepared by your comrade, Lucifer.

  • Rodolfo Inferido Villarmia

    The past of Jackie Enrile is haunting him now.

    The “Roman” Catholic Church supports this maniac killer.

    The past and present of the “Roman” Catholic Church are also haunting them with fewer members and low in offerings.

  • sepultorero

    Jack Enrile should instead expose what’s going on in Cagayan — from illegal logging to killing. If he really wants to expose a wrong-doing and help the filipino people, he should start with what the Enriles did and are doing in their bailwick. Of course, we have a new international airport there which is so huge that the media did not see it. Hahaha…
