Senate frees Rep. Ignacio Arroyo’s bookkeeper

By |


FREE. Rowena del Rosario, the former bookkeeper of Negros Occidental Representative Ignacio “Iggy” Arroyo, is freed by the Senate Thursday after she was detained Monday for refusing to answer questions linking the lawmaker and his brother, former First Gentleman Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo, to the allegedly anomalous sale of second-hand helicopters to the Philippine National Police.

MANILA, Philippines – Rowena del Rosario, the former bookkeeper of Negros Occidental Representative Ignacio Arroyo, was freed by the Senate on Thursday.

“Ms. Del Rosario you are free to go on the condition that whenever we call you for future hearings you will attend,” Senator Teofisto Guinona III, chairman of the Senate blue ribbon committee, said before suspending the hearing on Thursday.

“Maraming salamat po mga kagalang-galang na mga senador [Thank you very much honourable senators],” said Del Rosario, who has been detained in the Senate since Monday when during the Senate inquiry she evaded questions concerning the lawmaker and his brother, former First Gentleman Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo, over the supposed sale of second-hand helicopters to the Philippine National Police.

It was Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero who moved to lift the arrest and detention order against Del Rosario, before the Senate blue ribbon committee suspended its hearing on the allegedly anomalous sale of second hand helicopters to the Philippine National Police.

“May I ask Mr. Chairman, with the indulgence of my colleagues for the arrest order to be lifted and for her tobe released to be with her family,” Escudero said.

Senator Panfilo Lacson, who moved to have the witness detained in the Senate, seconded Escudero’s motion.

    Dapat kasi pinag-iisipan niyong mga senador ang inyong mga aksiyon. Wag niyo lang i-base sa pagka pikon, pagka irita, pagka insulto at pag bibigay simpatiya sa nagagalit na kasamang senador. Kayo ay ibinoto ng mga tao sa paniniwalang kayo ay matitinong senador. Kung kayo ay padalos-dalos at mabilis na madala ng emosyon, wala kayong pagkaka-iba sa mga kriminal na di alam ang kanilang ginagawa. On the other hand, mabuti naman na natauhan kayo. It is wrong to impose a penalty on someone whenever you fail to get what you are expecting her to give you. While you label Rowena as “evasive”, I find you people abusive. Why not try a different approach? Naubusan na ba kayo ng tricks o talagang kulang na kayo sa abilidad na makuha ang inyong hinahanap sa resource persons? Kung ako ang teacher niyo, fail kayo sa klase ko o baka masabihan ko pa kayo na “bring your parents here!”

    That’s a nice and good move of Chiz.  At least the image of entire Senate is saved from being a “Berdugo”. sumakay pa ng ’2nd motion” ang fugitive na senador. They may have realized that they can’t hold onto anyway on keeping the lady arbitrarily as for sure they will be slapped with another 2 court orders, SC, and CA on two urgent motions for the writ of habeas corpus filed by the husband.

    finally the insanity in the senate was over. The Senate has to start putting their acts together and to remember that they are there to come up with legislations and not acts as justice and jail anybody spontaneously. Senator Guingona, stop your ignorance and better resign. You have not done anything good in all your investigations.

      “finally the insanity in the senate was over.”

      Sorry, but I beg to disagree… maybe that particular manifestation of insanity is over but THE insanity in the Senate will only be over when the “insane” personalities are gone. That is why Filipinos must not put them back in there or should never elect others like them – air-headed, arrogant, abusive, fugitive, disrespectful, unprofessional, a shame!

    I watched the hearing when the bookkeeper was testifying.  That was not testifying to the truth.  She was lying and trying to evade and mislead the senators. She deserved to be detained.  The only thing I don’t like is that   the Senate failed to detain the big fry they had called in the past… the lying evading generals and their wives, Garci, Bolante, etc. etc.

    Nasira ang credibilidad ng Senate Blue Ribbon Committee ng ipakulong nila si Rowena.  Dapat hintuin na lang nila yang imbistigasyan na yan.  Hindi na kapanipaniwala mga sasabihin ng mga resource persons.  Puro takot na silang makulong pag di ma gustuhan sagot nila nang senador.   Biro mo, sa pag mamartir ng isang bookkeeper, napayuko niya ang buong senado.

  • Anonymous

    Miranda doctrine can only be invoked in criminal cases. In that case the lying bookkeeper is jailed in contempt which is a matter of discretion on the part of the Senate in exercise of its oversight functions excluding in aid of legislation. The contempt power of the Senate is very different from civil/administrative or criminal contempt exercise by the regular courts. The power of the Senate is strictly provided in the Constitution which cannot even be inquired by the court except in abuse of discretion. If you do not like the Senate, why is it that you voted yes to the Constitution when it was submitted for ratification in 1987? It is because voters are idiots and dumb as they are! Filipinos are deserving to receive this stupid government of the crazy!

      Halimuyak, Tama ka. Ang dami inconsistency na nahukay. Di raw nagbabayad ng VAT mula sa “lease.” Sobra mura ng helicopter “lease” (300K – 1M per month) kaysa standard rates ng Lion Air (4.8M per month). Iba ang pirma ni FG kaysa sample na binigay sa Senado noong 2004. Sobra baba ng sales ng LTA mula sa rental (350K/month) para makaya ang mag-”lease” ng helicopter. LTA ang nagbayad ng “initial lease payment” sa Robinson, pero hindi LTA ang nagbabayad ng monthly “lease,” mula raw kay Iggy ang mga ito.

      The truth is that we don’t like the way the Senate is handling this investigation.  The Senate is a legislative  body which main concern is the crafting of laws to benefit the people and not investigate people.  If questions asked by this good-for-nothing senators does not suit their wishes they file contempt charges against resource persons.  Today’s senate is a tool of Noynoy for his hate and vengeance against the GMA.

      Sadly, it is you who doesn’t understand what the rest are saying. No one is saying the Arroyo’s are not guilty. We are just saying these senators ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. To make matters worse, they pretend that they have FULL CONTROL of things like jailing a guest and supposedly doing her a favor by letting her out when we, well EXCEPT YOU, know very well they lost the battle so they had to release her.

      I don’t even want to talk about the Estrada’s and Lacson. We all know how dirty they are as well. This is basically a mockery of the whole process. If they really want to serve the country they should gather all the evidences and file a case against the Arroyo’s and make sure the case is air tight.

      Unfortunately, they don’t want that. Well, because they wouldn’t have any “perceived enemy” next elections.

    Ano pa ba ang gusto ng mga senadores para mag conclude na ang mga choppers ay pagaari ng mga Arroyos, FFG in particular. Hindi ba dapat nagrecommend na sila na magfile ng kaso sa gentle pig dahil sa pagremit nila ng half million dollars sa Robinson company sa america para daw sa lease ng mga choppers, gayong ang pekeng lease agreement ay sa kay LionAir. Hindi ba may fraud na duon? At yun nga. hindi ba peke ang agreement gayong ang nagpirma para sa Lionair ay hindi pa empleyado at that time?  At iyon pang pagbabayad ni Rowena sa Lionair up until June 2011 ay katunayan na reimbursements ng mga gastusin sa mga choppers. 

    Na notice ko na sa mga questions ng mga senators laging nire refer yong lease agreement, gayong fake naman yon.  Di ba dapat i establish nila muna na iyon ay hindi tunay, and then from there, everything that the Arroyos, including Rowena, are saying and insisting are proven as all complete lies.

Basahin niyo yung book ni Marites Vitug tungkol sa SC para malaman niyo how the SC works. Hintay ng ebidensiya… phew! maraming abugadong mukhang kwarta dito kaya walang hustisyang maihahain. At least kahit nakakainis magtanung ang mga senador, naipapakita naman sa TV ang mga mukha ng mga nagsabwatan at nagpagamit para tayo nakawan.

    Natutowa ako nagkakaroon tayo ng healthy debate dito..Ang akin lang ay ang sistima ng imbestgasyon ni Lacson and Company ay mahalintulad sa torture..Pinasusoka nila si Rowena ng wala namang isusoka. Kung bakit si Rowena ang kanilang dinidikdik e nan dyan si Gen. Verzosa na nag approved ng bentahan ng helicopter. Ayon kay Lacson marami raw ang mga pulis ang sangkot dito, e ano ngayon. Takot ba syang maubos ang mga pulis na corrupt? Mukha yatang ilag sya kay Gen. Verzosa dahil siguro baka maraming alam itong si Gen. tungkol sa mga kalukohan ni Lacson noong nasa PNP pa sya…

    Akala ko may panukala si Sen Joker Arroyo tungkol sa panuntunan ng kung papaaano tatratuhin ang sinumang resource person na imibitado sa Senado. Nasaan na ang slogan mo Sen Arroyo?

    PAG BAD KA, LAGOT KA!

    Ang daming bad sa inyo sa pagtrato ninyo kay Ms. Rowena del Rosario.
    Hinahagupit ninyo ang mga Arroyo brothers pero ang latay ay kay Mrs. Rowena.

      Ulipur: That is because Rowena is a willing patsy for the Arroyos! Commendable for one that has canine devotion to her amo. Anyway- she has a strong sense of “entitlement” accepting a position where she is not qualified ( and she knew she is not) and yet considered it as a “ PRIVILEGE” as reason to accept the appointment– the wang wang mentality on exhibit!

    police officials have the documents IN THEIR HANDS while undergoing inspections and approval, on the other hand, Rowena MAY or MAY NOT KNOW the contents of the transaction which is the case MAYBE because employees are NOT mandated or a party to know SOME or ALL transactions a company undergoes. Employees are being told ONLY on what to do…pay this, pay that, do this, do that……
    Mr Senators, tell us NOW WHO IS LYING and WHO NEEDS TO BE DETAINED, police officials who have the DOCUMENTS IN HAND or an ordinary employee who MAY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS???? May we ask why this LIARS were NOT detained….STOP this CIRCUS, let the judicial courts do their job. There are a lot more important pressing problems that our country needs to address, we don’t need divisions, WE NEED UNITY to overcome problems of poverty, unemployment, lawlessness, and etc. Let’s move on….

    sana hinintay nila ang decision ng ca sa petition ng asawa ni rowena for the writ of habeas corpus para nagka-alaman na.
    old school at seasoned operator si jess, he knows how it works kaya di siya mapipiga ni ping, di gaya ni mosqueda na bumigay under pressure.galit lang siya kay arroyo dahil nasira ang pangarap nya na palitan si erap, for the meantime magtiis muna tayo sa pagpapa-gwapa ni lola ping.

    Bakit natin kailangan palitan itong mga senador na ito:
    1) Si Lacosn – Pulis Patola iyan alam niyang mag implement ng law sa pamamaraan ng torture at pananakot, ito ang ginagawa niya sa senado. Mag pulis na lang siya samahan niya si Palparan.
    2) Si Revilla, Sotto at Jinggoy – Mga Artistang pipitsugin iyang mga yan. Mabuti pa siguro mag bowling na lnag si Sotto baka mabigyan pa niya ng parangal ang Pilipinas. Si Jinggoy, bumalik na lang siya sa pag aaritsta, kailangan natin ng mga kapalit nila Manok at Rudy Manlapaz. Si Revilla naman asikasuhin niya na lang iyong mga chicks niya, sobrang dami.
    3) Si Miriam – tunay na sira ulo iyan, ipasok dapat siya sa mental hospital.
    4) Si Enrile, Honasan at Trillanes – Mga coup plotters yan at mga right wingers. Dapat padala na lang sila sa Libya para tulungan si Gaddafi.
    5) Si Escudero – Magaling lang yan sa salita, dapat magbenta na lang siya ng second hand na kotse.
    6) Si Pangilinan at Recto – Naboto lang iyan dahil sa mga asawa nila. Magsilbi na lang sila sa CWL o sa mga socialclubs noong asawa nila. Mga under di saya iyang mag yan.
    7) Si Gunggona, Marcos at Pimentel – mga proxy iyan ng mga tatay nila, ano ang utak ng tatay iyon din ang utak ng anak. Ano ba ang ginawa ng matatandang Gungona, Marcos, at Pimentel? Wala, nakasama pa sila.
    8) Si Cayetano and Cayetano – mag ingat kayo sa Political Dynasty. mamayang konti pati aso nila nasa senado na rin.
    9) Si Lito Lapid may bahay na iyan a puro ginto. Nagiging sakim na iyan, kahit lahar pinagkakakitaan na niya.
    10) Si Drilon – aroganteng tao iyan ni ayaw niyan mag tanggal ng sapatos sa check in sa airport. Hindi bagay maging senador ang isang arroganteng tao.

    Minority lang talaga ang mga senador na gumagawa ng batas. O mga senador ano ba ang napasa ninyong batas lately?

      Seguro ayaw magtanggal ng sapatos, dahil butas ang medyas at may alipunga ang mga daliri ng paa ha!ha!ha!

        To Bansot, iyan din ang balita ko, mabantot daw iyong kanang paa ni Senator Drillon at san tambak ang Kachichas nito. Biruin mo binutas ng bantot iyong lahat ng mga medyas niya. Kaya ngayon daw naka pang futbol na medyas na di Drillon.

      Sobra ka naman, wala namang mukhang clown sa Senate ah.

    Iyong kaso ni Lacson about owning properties and also properties in the name of his wife, bakit hindi ito ang usisain ni JInggoy. Magaling siya dito diba? Tawagin niya iyong wife, pakitaan ng picture at tanuning kung kanila iyon. Kunin ang baknk records, pa aminin kung kanila iyon. Pasok naman si Drillon, saying “sige kung hindi sa iyo yan, idonate mo na lang sa Pilipinas”? Luma na iyang mga dialog na iyan. Halos na huhulaan mo na kung ano ang susunod.

    A good move by the senate. But what a shame that they have to do this to a small fry. Those generals involved in the “pabaon” were clearly evading questions but they were never put under detention. Sa Pinas ganuon talaga, pag wala kang pera at di kilala, sorry na lang.

    • Anonymous

      What a shame to subject small fry?  Did you know to get the big fry (s) you need to wrestle with the small fries for these are the conduits to what the big fry is doing?  Do you really believe this person (Rowena del Rosario) is telling the truth?  Do you really believe, as a bookeeper who seems not to know a whole lot about what she did as one in the LTA Inc., was appointed to the Pag-Ibig funds because she was competent not as a reward for her keeping the secrets?  Kung naniniwala kang mabuting tao itong mga Pidal at del Rosario, pinagbibili ang Jones Bridge sa murang halaga.  Sabihin mo lang kung interesda ka.

        Hey_Dudes, these dummy senators were trying to catch Al Capone through the book keeper. Maybe they all watched the untouchables and thought they can score handsome points copying the movie. Too bad the bookeeper got them flat on the face. If they cannot get the samll fry how can they get the big fry. Whther people are telling the truth or not, it is still a matter of proving what is true and what is not. Since they really do not want to pursue the truth (they just want to look good asking those questions) nothing will come out of these investigations. Imagine the money the senators spend to take pictures of houses abroad,  dilligently snoop into private citizen’s bank accounts, and expensively search for potential witnesses to take vengance from the axes they grind. Imagine if that was used to create laws and do their jobs. Their staff I am sure would have more detective work to do than research on good laws for the land. What a terrible waste.

    how criminals are in jail as a result of congress investigations?  exactly.  best thing for congress to do is give the DOJ as much power needed to prosecute these criminals.   berating, yelling or empty threats amount to nothing.  lalo na ngayon alam ng sinumang haharap sa mga senador na wala naman silang magawa kung ayaw nilang pumiyok.  these congressional hearings will be nothing but a tele novela.

    the senate’s repetitive propensity to detain people not even charged in court is an abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction. only the judges have the sole power to detain people by virtue of a warrant of arrests after finding probable cause. no matter how the public perceive the guilt of any person in a public hearing or censure which always goes on in the senate, still the laws must be upheld. the right of a person to liberty can not be overcome by the grandstanding postures of senate proclaiming the guilt of people. this is against the rule of law and must be challenged in the supreme court.

    “Maraming salamat po mga kagalang-galang na mga senador [Thank you very much Honorable senators],” said Del Rosario”

    Mali ata ang sabi ni Rowena ng magpaalam sa mga Senador. Dapat ganito ang sinabi niya.
    “Maraming salamat po mga Walang Galang ng mga Senador{ Thank you very much DisHonorable Senators”

    Mali yata ang tunikoy ng opisyal ng PSC na ampaw, ang mga senador na ‘to dapat, hindi ang mga miyembro ng dragon boat team.
