Another owner seen in choppers’ deed of sale

By |


Expect Mike Arroyo’s lawyers to produce a deed of sale bearing the name of another person to show that the husband of former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was not the owner of the two secondhand helicopters sold to the Philippine National Police, Sen. Franklin Drilon said on Sunday.

“Remember that Archibald Po was asked to sign a blank deed of sale. I suspect (the lawyers) would try to prove that he sold the helicopters to another corporation or another individual, say Juan de la Cruz,” Drilon said in an interview.

The senator said the Senate blue ribbon committee was preparing for this defense strategy.

“I will call the lawyer who notarized (the blank deed of sale) and ask him whether he knows Po. Because Po said he did not talk to any notary public (when the sale was made),” Drilon said.

Po, owner of Lionair Inc., claimed under oath that he sold five Robinson R-44 Raven I helicopters to Arroyo in late 2003 so that his wife can use these in her presidential campaign in 2004.

Po said that after Mike Arroyo completed payments for the choppers, he was asked to sign a blank deed of sale by the latter.

Arroyo has denied ownership of the helicopters and filed perjury charges against Po.

Sen. Panfilo Lacson said two of the helicopters, then already 5 years old, were passed off as brand new and sold to the PNP in 2009.

Po said two other choppers were still in the Lionair hangar in Pasay City, while a fifth unit crashed at the height of the 2007 midterm elections.

Drilon refused to elaborate on how senators would confront Arroyo and his lawyers about the helicopters’ ownership before they were sold to the PNP.

“But how can you explain the blank deed of sale in the first place? And why else would Mr. Arroyo be brave enough to slap perjury charges against Po,” Drilon asked.

Real owner

Responding to queries sent via SMS, Drilon said the blue ribbon panel had gathered enough “circumstantial evidence” to show that Arroyo was the real owner of the helicopters now with the PNP.

“Our investigation showed he paid for the hangar fees, for maintenance … If he does not own the units, why was he paying for these?” the senator asked.

Drilon also recalled the testimony given by Po’s subordinates in Lionair that also linked Arroyo to the helicopters.

Accountant Elvie Solano-Juguan, for example, claimed receiving as much as P1 million in cash for maintenance fees paid by Arroyo.

“Arroyo paid cash like he was just buying lanzones! But paying P1 million in cash is unusual, unless you really want to hide something,” Drilon said.

The senator also noted the statement of former Lionair dispatcher Domingo Lazo that he personally received instructions, sent through text messages by Arroyo, about flight schedules and the names of passengers allowed to use the helicopters from 2004 to 2009.

“And why were the police pilots saying that when they flew (the former First Family), they made landings or had takeoffs in Area 3 of Malacañang?” Drilon added.

Downpayment

The senator noted that details reported and documents submitted by Po were also strong indications of Arroyo’s ownership.

“Po’s employee Renato Sia mentioned that when Arroyo made the downpayment of $500,000 for the helicopters, the money was sent to Robinson Helicopter Co. (RHC) through telegraphic transfer funded by LTA Inc.,” Drilon said.

LTA Inc. is an Arroyo-owned company with main address at the LTA Building on Perea Street in Makati City.

Credit memos

“Rene Sia said there were two credit memos. After the down payment was made, Arroyo told Po to open a dollar account at the Unionbank branch in Richville, Alabang,” Drilon said.

“A credit memo means you transfer funds from one account to another of the same bank. The balance for the helicopters, around $700,000 was paid through credit memo to Po’s account and later transmitted to RHC,” the senator said.

“We can get documentary evidence from the bank to prove that the credit memos came from the LTA Inc. account and transferred to Po’s account. I asked Po to trace who ordered the credit memo of the same bank on Perea Street,” he added.

Drilon said all these circumstances would show that Arroyo indeed owned the helicopters. “That’s why we challenge him, if he denies ownership, to accomplish an affidavit holding Archibald Po and Lionair free and harmless from any liability if he donates (the two) choppers (still in the Pasay hangar) to the PNP,” he said.

Puno to be invited

Also yesterday, Drilon said the blue ribbon committee would invite former Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno as chair of the National Police Commission (Napolcom) and other officials who in 2008 authorized changes in the specifications of the helicopters to be purchased by the PNP.

“The Napolcom should explain why the specifications were changed so that only Mike Arroyo’s helicopters qualified (in the bidding process),” the senator said.

“In the first place, Napolcom has no technical expertise to impose technical specifications. These details should come from the end-user, which is the PNP,” he added.

    Siyempre takipan na lahat ng mga involve dito, dapat parusahan lahat ng mga nagkasala.
    Sibakin na sa pwesto ang mga pulis officials na halata ng nangloloko, pero umaarte pa rin na ignorante sa bilihan ng helikopter, sila pa naman ang mga senior officers sa PNP, paano sila igagalang ng mga mamamayan at kapwa nila pulis? Mga top Official sa PNP na tatanga-tanga? Huwag na tayong magtaka na may rookie cop na namamaril ng civilian, pulis na involved sa drug trafficking at protection racket at marami pang kawalanghiyaan, just look at their so called leaders.

    “Drilon said the blue ribbon panel had gathered enough “circumstantial
    evidence” to show that Arroyo was the real owner of the helicopters”. I dont’ know men..but this is shit..Drilon has not been in private practice for a loooooooooooooong time. Good if he got a bunch of practicing lawyers in his side. Enrile was not buying this circumstantial evidence. Angara, though not in private practice, still reviewing the works of  neophytes in his ACCRA Law firm as i was told. You see he is sooooooo silent with this issue..This investigation is only for a show. I really wanted to see them to go to court, and file immediately the cases before CGMA will die.

    Drilon is floating a lot of ideas but just the same, his only goal is to keep the fire burning against the Arroyos. It’s unbelievable that a rude businessman like Po would sign a “blank” deed of sale, how stupid one can be. This is pure and simple, whoever sold to the PNP per legal documents was the previous owner of the items. I Po is denying it, the government might as well get back the money that PNP paid him. ENDOF STORY!

      where did you came from? Why did you say its unbelievable ? Remember that the person infront of Mr. Po at that time is the husband of the president of the philippines.. a very powerful person.. very influencial..That being a businessman as mr. Po is, he knows the situation well.. that if he did not give in.. it could be a lot of trouble to him and his business.. common do you see the situation? Mr Arroyo being a lawyer himself knows his card very well at that time.. sad to say he did not learn he used that power illegally for his personal gain.. END OF STORY !

    With all these evidences already out on public, Arroyo’s lawyers may find it hard to present a good defense theory so tailored to deny their client’s ownership of these helicopters. Mahirap na with all these circumstantial facts. They must be looking at other technicalities or better yet, tumakas na lang. The Arroyo’s at this point might just be buying time.

    Blank deed of sale.  That means, no name can be found except that of Po! Circumstantial evidence cannot convict the guilty beyond reasonable doubt.  However, if they think it is strong enough evidence, I still wonder why they are not filing the charges against Mike Arroyo in a court of law?  Everyone in the Senate is a coward or the truth says, they have NOTHING against Arroyo.  ???????…

    I am one of the many Filipinos who want those responsible for this scam to go to jail. If that includes Mike Arroyo, the better. But we must do it in the correct legal process. We must do it with due deligence. We must do it beyond reasonable doubt in the court of law.

    Which is why I feel uneasy when Senators who are conducting the probe in the Senate are so generous with information and telegraphing their moves to whoever wants to interview them. It makes the process looklike public persecution and self promotion by these Senators. 

    Sen Drilon please stop going around TV channels and Radio stations promoting what you know and explaining your next move. Let the media men do their work. What you are doing is cheapening the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Hearing making it look like persecution of the Arroyos.

    Let the committee hearing speak for themselves. Let the witnesses speak for themeselves. Let brilliant lawyers divine the next legal maneuver. Let them talk..NOT YOU SIR! 

    YOU LOOK LIKE PRIMOTING YOURSELF…AND SACRIFICING THE DUE PROCESS IN THE END.

If indeed Arroyo owns those choppers and violated the laws, why they don’t bring the matter to the court? Senate investigations is just a waste of time and money. Why they don’t talk about on how to solve shortages of classrooms, books, teachers, etc., etc.? PURO KAYO PORMA

      ay sus, sa dami ng katiwalian, di kaya sila napagod? no wonder nagkakasakit na sila. sa dami ng katarantaduhang ginawa nila, sarili nilang katawan, sinisingil na sila.

    The Senate blue ribbon investigation is disgusting because it is highly bias and even to the point that Lacson putting the word on the mouth of some policeman to implicate FG and offering them allmost anything just to link FG in influencing to buy the used helicopter. I wont wonder if Mr. Po was pointing to FG as the owner of the helicopter. If the Senator didn’t hide their antic in front of national television it is not remote that they say the same dialoge to anyone that will testify against the Arroyos.

    Beware of Iggy…he is now coming out again to defend his bother. A liar is always a liar.
    Hope the “Pidal” case be revived, so will know what really happen. Use of dammy should not be allowed, this is perjury…a lie.

    Wait and see. You could always ask whoever would be the owner reflected in the deed of sale. Still not an easy job and would cost arroyo’s a big sum if there would be a taker…
