Sindikato sa Comelec namemeke ng balota

SAPOL Ni Jarius Bondoc Pilipintar Ngayon, June 30, 2009

Merong sindikato sa Comelec na namemeke ng balota, precinct returns, at iba pang dokumentong panghalalan. Natalisod ito ng batikang election lawyer Romy Macalintal habang inaasikaso ang isang kliyente. Nag-report siya agad sa commissioners. Kataka-taka, dinedma lang nila siya. Ito’y matapos nilang paboran ang kalaban na nakinabang sa pekeng papeles.

Nagsimula ang lahat nang iprotesta ni talunang Esgardo Tallado ang proklamasyon nu’ng 2007 ni Cama­rines Norte Gov. Jesus Typoco. Umano’y maraming “manifest errors” sa statement of votes by precinct (SOVP) sa bayan ng Labo. Isinampa ang kaso 110 araw makalipas ang proklamasyon, pero tinanggap pa rin ng Comelec first division miski nililimita ng batas ang mga ganoong kaso sa loob ng limang araw lang mula pro­ klamasyon. Giit ng division members na may kapang­yarihan silang ibahin ang rules. Nu’ng Abril 2008 idi­neklara nila si Tallado na umano’y nagwagi nang 65 boto.

Hinirang ni Typoco si Macalintal na mag-motion for reconsideration sa en banc. Ang unang ginawa ng abo­gado ay hingin sa records office ang SOVP ng Labo, na basehan ng desisyong maka-Tallado. Laking gulat niya nang sabihin ng office chief at staff na peke ang doku­mento at malaki ang pagkakaiba sa karaniwang SOVP. Isiningit ito ni Macalintal sa motion.

Ganunpaman nu’ng Peb. 2009, kumatig ang mayorya ng en banc sa desisyon ng division pabor kay Tallado. Paki­wari ni Malalintal matagal nang inakda nina Commissioners Nicodemo Ferrer (ponente), Leonardo Leo­nida, Lucenito Tagle, at Armando Velasco ang ruling, bago pa niya madiskubre ang pamemeke. Si Commissioner Rene Sarmiento   lang ang kumontra, at nagmung­ka­hing bilangin muli ang boto sa Labo. At pahabol lang, inutos ng en banc sa NBI na imbes­tigahan ang umano’y pa­memeke.

Naghukay din si Maca­lintal. Napansin niya sa logbook ng records office na ni hindi pala hiningi ng ma­yorya ang SOVP ng Labo. Umasa lang sila sa sabi-sabi ni Tallado ng “mani-fest errors.” Nu’ng Mayo kinum­pirma ng NBI ang forgery. Pero hanggang ngayon wa­lang aksiyon ang Comelec.

‘Useful’ in RP – as in Venezuela and Iran?

GOTCHA By Jarius Bondoc The Philippine Star, June 29, 2009

Atong Ang is a confessed criminal. Indicted with Joseph Estrada for plunder, he pleaded guilty to a lesser offense for a suspended sentence. Part of his punishment was to forfeit a house to the State, to repay tobacco taxes he had stolen in 1998-99. Only a week ago the Sandiganbayan allowed him to apply for parole. Presumably it is still pending.

So why is this ex-con carrying a handgun? And what gives him the authority to poke it at journalist Ramon Tulfo, in full view of party guests?

Ex-cons aren’t allowed to have a firearm license, so Ang’s .38-caliber is illegal. More so they may not have a permit to carry, so he’s guilty twice over. He couldn’t have applied for gun amnesty, since that police program has yet to start in two weeks.

Reportedly Ang has set up illegal gambling in Camarines Sur and Cavite, and is about to in Cagayan. The NBI raided the Camarines vice den a month ago. The Cavite racket uses the government’s small-town lottery as front, but a check of back-end revenues will reveal jueteng. The suspended sentence has not made Ang repentant. He needs to be clapped in a real jail to make him go straight like normal citizens.

Before signing away P7.2 billion for poll automation, election officials would do well to review the contractor one last time. Venezuelans founded, manage and staff Smartmatic. Their first major contracts upon startup in 2004 were in Venezuela. Among these, the reelection of Hugo Chavez for life and revision of the country’s Constitution.

In Dec. 2007 Smartmatic voting machines were used in Venezuela’s tightly contested referendum. CEO Antonio Mugica went far beyond extolling the accuracy and speed of his system. In Smartmatic’s website (http://www.smartmatic.com/pressroom/article/article/smartmatic-voting-solution-delivers-political-breakthrough-in-venezuelan-referendum) he even hailed polls under strongman Chavez as free and fair:

“In light of the Referendum’s results, it is time for the cloud over Venezuelan democracy to lift for the world to recognize once and for all that our elections meet the highest standards of fairness, accuracy and transparency.”

* * *

But what is the standard of fairness in Venezuela elections? Here’s what the Wall Street Journal reported in “Chávez Grabs Again for Life Tenure — Intimidation is on the rise as a referendum approaches,” on Feb. 2, 2009 (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123353560131437763.html):

“… Mr. Chávez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela is campaigning frantically. The party has said its workers will go ‘door-to-door,’ hold forums, and man subway exits in Caracas to get out the vote. This is in addition to Mr. Chávez’s use of the bully pulpit on television… Yet all indications are that Mr. Chávez doesn’t think this will be enough. To his list of ‘tools’ he has added intimidation… In the past month, Chávez enforcers have been attacking student groups that are trying to rally Venezuelans to vote ‘no.’ Tear gas and rubber bullets have produced both physical injuries and rising fears of violence around the country. This could affect voter turnout. It also raises doubts about whether enough opposition observers can be mobilized to guard the vote on election night. If not, and Mr. Chávez ‘wins,’ things are likely to get a whole lot scarier.”

And Bloomberg News had this to say in “Venezuela Opposition Presses Chavez Over Election Rule,” Aug. 8, 2008 (http://www.nysun.com/foreign/venezuela-opposition-presses-chavez-over-election/83449/):

“Opponents of President Chavez met with a regional trade bloc’s human rights panel in a bid to press the government to reverse a rule that bans some of their candidates from running for office… The president of the human rights commission of Mercosur, Adriana Pena, arrived in Caracas Wednesday to hear the complaints of key opposition figures barred from participating in local and regional elections on November 23 by a high court ruling.”

* * *

Very telling is what Chavez thinks of elections in other lands. The rigged elections in Iran he admires. McClatchy Newspapers stated in “Venezuela’s Chavez backs Ahmadinejad amid Iranian protests,” June 18, 2009 (http://www.miamiherald.com/news/world/AP/story/1102300.html):

“Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is standing by his man in the Middle East, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, even as hundreds of thousands of ordinary Iranians took to the streets Wednesday for the fifth straight day to protest his claim to a landslide re-election.

“Chavez belongs to a small circle of political oddfellows who support Ahmadinejad, including the King of Swaziland, Hamas, and Hezbollah.

“The Venezuelan government, ‘in the name of the people,’ hailed the ‘extraordinary democratic development’ that resulted in Ahmadinejad’s victory Friday…

“Chavez’s support for Iran’s beleaguered leader is no surprise. The two leaders have developed warm ties in recent years, based on their mutual antipathy for the U.S….

“Like Ahmadinejad, Chavez has been accused of running roughshod over democracy by sidelining his enemies, stifling criticism and concentrating more power in his own hands.

“Chavez and Ahmadinejad ‘are guys who use the democratic process to consolidate power, and then don’t think the democratic process should be used to deny them power,’ said Dennis Jett, a former US ambassador who now teaches international relations at Penn State University. ‘Neither of these guys want to see a change in government.’”

* * *

In surveys the past three years Filipinos have been pining for change of administration in 2010. They have expressed alarm over moves to alter the Constitution to prolong the admin in power. What the Comelec has to assess is if Smartmatic will help RP achieve the same level of “fairness” as Venezuela … and Iran.

Bandido naglipana sa kalye ng Metro Manila

SAPOL Ni Jarius Bondoc Pilipino Star Ngayon, June 29, 2009

DINANAS ito ng isang motorista 11:30 ng gabi sa C-5 Taguig patungong Pasig. Tumatakbo siya nang 80 kph nang mapansin niya ang dalawang binatang nakatayo sa center island. Nagmenor siya. Pagtapat ng kotse sa dalawa—wham!—biglang nabasag ang bintana sa driver’s side. Huminto ang motorista, litong-lito dahil puro bubog sa mukha at leeg. Paglingon napansin niyang papalapit ang dalawang lalaki, isa may bitbit na bag at isa ay tila bakal na tubo. Ibinirit niya ang kotse patungo sa maliwanag na gas station. “Sir, nabato rin ba kayo?” tanong agad ng security guard. Saka nabatid ng motorista na marami na palang nabiktima sa pook na ‘yon, bina-bato ang windshield, at hinoholdap kapag huminto. Suwerte lang ang huling motorista, dahil nakaalis siya agad. May tumatambay na pulis-Taguig sa pook, pero kapag umuulan ay nawawala.

Matagal na rin bumibira ang hoodlums sa kanto ng Quirino at Osmeña Avenues, malapit sa slum nila sa Manila. Kapag pula ang traffic light, binabali nila ang radio antenna ng nag-iisang motorista. Kapag bumaba ito para umangal, ginugulpi nila’t tinatangay lahat ng kaga­mitan: Pitaka, relo, cell phone, alahas, laptop, atbp. Tapos tumatalilis sila patungo sa pasilyo kung saan takot hu­mabol ang pulis.

Dahil mahina ang police response, lumakas ang loob ng iba pang gang na bumanat sa kanto ng Araneta at Aurora Avenues sa Quezon City, at sa EDSA gawing Pasay at Mandaluyong cities. Pareho ang modus operandi. Kapag nakahinto ang traffic, tira na sila. Walang proteksiyon ang mga mamamayang nagpapasuweldo sa pulisya.

Nakahanap ng bagong pook-krimen ang mga maton: Sa labas lang ng NAIA Terminal-1 sa Airport Road, Pasay. Pinuputakti nila ang dri- vers ng mga sasakyang lumalabas sa terminal gates, pinupukpok at sini­sipa ang mga bintana, pin­to’t bubong, hanggang ma­bigyan ng pera.

Pustahan, kapag nan­laban ang isang napa­ligirang motorista at ma­kabaril ng hoodlum, mabi-lis pa ang pulis sa alas-kuwatro sa paghabla sa kanya. Pero magaan ang loob nila sa kapwa-mango­ngotong.

Ano pa kaya ang nakakaligtaan?

SAPOL Ni Jarius Bondoc Pilipino Star Ngayon,  June 26, 2009

Umupo ang lalaki sa metro station sa Washington DC at nagtutugtog ng violin. Anim na piyesang classical ni Bach ang tinipa niya sa 45 minutos. Dahil rush hour libo-libong tao ang dumaan papasok sa trabaho. Sa unang tatlong minuto, isang lalaki edad-40 ang nakapansin sa musika, binagalan ang paglalakad, tapos umalis na rin. Makalipas ang isa pang minuto, may babaeng naghulog ng $1 sa violin case pero ni hindi huminto o tumingin. Ilang minuto muli, may sumandal sa pader para makinig, tapos tumingin sa relos at nagmadaling umalis. Ang tanging matagal pumansin ay isang batang edad-3, na patuloy nililingon ang musikero habang hinila ng ina. Gay’un din ang marami pang ibang bata, na lahat ay halos kaladkarin na ng mga magulang.

Sa 45 minutong pagtutugtog, anim katao lang ang huminto’t nakinig nang ilang saglit. Dalawampu ang naghulog ng limos nang walang hinto-hinto. Nakakolekta ang lalaki ng $32. Nang matapos na siya’t humalili ang katahimikan, walang nakapansin, walang pumalakpak, walang nakakilala.

Lingid sa kaalaman ng madla, ang violinist ay si Joshua Bell, isa sa pinaka-mahusay na musikero sa mundo. Tinugtog niya ang ilang pinaka-kaakit-akit na piyesa sa biyoling halagang $3.5 milyon. Dalawang araw bago tumugtog sa subway, nag-perform si Bell sa isang teatro sa Boston: Sold out ang mga tiket na tig-$150.
Totoong script ito. Ang pagtugtog ni Bell nang incognito sa metro station ay bahagi ng eksperimento ng Washington Post sa pag­papahalaga ng tao. Ang tanong: Sa kakaibang lugar at oras, napapansin ba natin ang magaganda, humihinto ba tayo para langhapin ito, at nababatid ba natin ang kagalingan sa hindi inaasahang sit­wasyon?

Ang masaklap ay nang lapitan ng isang sobrang sigasig na permits officer ng siyudad si Bell at inusisa kung may pahintulot tu­mugtog sa subway. Walang maipakitang permit; minul­tahan ng $88. Leksiyon: Kung wala tayong panahon huminto’t makinig sa pinakama­husay na musika, musikero at instrumento, ano pa kaya ang ibang nami-miss natin?

Comelec brass ignores gang of insider-forgers

GOTCHA By Jarius Bondoc The Philippine Star, June 26, 2009


There’s a syndicate at the Commission on Election that forges ballots, precinct returns and other poll documents. Top-rate election lawyer Romy Macalintal stumbled upon this in the course of defending a politician-client, and promptly reported to the commissioners. Oddly the commissioners ignored him and kept quiet. This, after they unduly favored the contender that benefited from the spurious papers?

The protest against Camarines Norte Gov. Jesus Typoco should only be incidental to the forgery gang’s existence. But it becomes key in light of dubious events. Loser Edgardo Tallado had disputed Typoco’s 2007 victory for “manifest errors” in the statement of votes by precinct (SOVP) in Labo town. The filing was done 110 long days after Typoco’s proclamation. Yet the Comelec first division entertained the case in spite of the law limiting “corrections” to only five days from proclamation. The division members claimed to have power to interpret the rule as they please. That’s debatable. At any rate, in Apr. 2008 they declared Tallado the new winner by 65 votes.

Typoco hired Macalintal to move for reconsideration by the en banc. Macalintal’s first act was to check with the Election Records and Statistics Department the Labo SOVP that was the basis for the pro-Tallado ruling. To his surprise, the department staff and head told him the document look fake because of wide variances with usual SOVPs. Macalintal promptly included this in his motion.

Still, on Feb. 24, 2009, majority of the en banc upheld the division verdict favoring Tallado. Macalintal says Commissioners Nicodemo Ferrer (ponente), Leonardo Leonida, Lucenito Tagle and Armando Velasco seemed to have drafted the ruling long before his discovery of the forgery. Only Commissioner Rene Sarmiento dissented and called for re-canvassing of Labo election returns. On afterthought the others issued a separate memo for the NBI to investigate the insider fraud. Digging deeper, Macalintal noted from the records section’s logbook that the majority commissioners had not bothered to borrow the SOVP on file. They just took Tallado’s word for it about “manifest errors.” Had they checked, the records keeper would have discovered the fraud earlier. Did they know something was wrong?

Macalintal raised hell. He asked the Supreme Court to stop Typoco’s unseating and Tallado’s proclamation. Too, he begged the commissioners to flush out the forgers. Ignored, he challenged Chairman Jose Melo to a legal duel: if he is able to prove the forgery, the pro-Tallado commissioners should resign; if he fails, he would give up lawyering forever.

Last May 22 the NBI confirmed that the SOVP was indeed spurious. Still no word from the Comelec.

The Comelec is to award today to Smartmatic of Barbados the P7.4-billion supply of 82,200 precinct count optical scanners. Smartmatic’s skill is in making touch-screen voting machines, not optical mark reading PCOS. In fact, Smartmatic states these in its product brochure: OMR or PCOS may cause “civil unrest”, 2-10 percent error rate for OMR or PCOS, and it is more confident with its touch screen solution. Melo says bidding losers are only “sour-graping.”

Last Friday from Palawan I reported the filing of graft raps against four local leaders for illegally leveling a mountain in San Vicente town. One of them, Vice Mayor Joseph Armstrong Palanca of Coron, reacts:

“Before anything else, I encourage you to continue your advocacy for good government and conservation, and I hope Palawan will continue to be among your concerns.

“Now to your column: you can take this with a grain of salt if you wish, but the allegations against me and the other local leaders are the first salvo by my cousin Gov. Joel T. Reyes of what is proving to be dirty May 2010 elections. The Kilusan Sagip Kalikasan (KSK), which initiated the case against me, is neither an NGO nor an environmental movement. It is in fact directly under the Office of Governor Reyes; its personnel are his political appointees working at his pleasure.

“There is no truth at all to the charges against me. Any lawyer worth his salt can peruse the documents filed with the prosecutor and confirm this. When (not if) the charges are dismissed, I will let you know. And as the topic is about quarrying, you might verify the quarrying in Coron to reclaim a patch of pristine sea at a whooping (sic) price of P400 million. Check if it is properly documented and who gained a couple of hundred million pesos from it. And before I forget, it may interest you to know that my cousin Governor Reyes is presently out on bail after the Ombudsman found probable cause to indict him before the Sandiganbayan on, what else, but a quarry/mining-related criminal offense.

“In fairness to San Vicente, it has the highest percentage of forest cover in the whole of Palawan. To quote well-respected Edong Magpayo, executive director of Palawan Conservation Corps, in his front-page report in The Palawan Times (June 8-14, 2009): ‘Namangha ang grupo (Global Legal Action on Climate Change) sa nakita sa San Vicente dahil sa hindi inakala ng mga miyembro nito na ang bayan pa ang may makapal na kagubatan samantalang madalas sinasabi na ito ay wala ng puno bunga ng operasyon dito noon ng isang logging company.’ If not for the able stewardship of its mayor, Antonio V. Gonzales, and his predecessor Antonio C. Alvarez, San Vicente would not have the potential to be a major environmental tourism destination in Asia. Coron, on the other hand, is already a popular tourist destination but risks losing that privilege with the way its natural resources are being destroyed.”

Secret side trip a fund misuse

GOTCHA By Jarius Bondoc The Philippine Star, Updated June 24, 2009

Gloria Arroyo’s secret side trip to Colombia is not only misuse of public funds. It’s deceit about her doings as President. Lore-lie et al can’t just brush this aside with a silly plea to respect Arroyo’s privacy. They owe Filipinos a truthful, credible explanation. (Invoking privacy of Arroyo’s plans beyond 2010 is as inane, since it’s taxpayers who’d pay for her bodyguards the rest of her life.)

Arroyo thinks it okay to waste tax money on opaque dealings. Such attitude of impunity stems from public indifference towards her pointless visits to Dubai, Syria and other tax havens. Emboldening her too was past inattention to her huge spending for 52 foreign jaunts since 2001. But the people have had it. The Senate will investigate.

Only bits of info trickle in about Arroyo’s travel binges. But they’re alarming: P800 million in 2008 alone, Sen. Panfilo Lacson reckons; P482 million in 2006 and P210 million in 2005, according to state auditors — P4 billion in all since she took over Malacañang, ex-senator Ernie Maceda calculates. The amount could have built 40,000 classrooms, irrigated 80,000 hectares of farms, or paid combat bonuses of 110,000 soldiers. Instead she frittered it away on trips that she now has the temerity to keep secret.

All Arroyo has to show for it are press releases trumpeting this or that doubtful accomplishment. One such Malacañang issuance, on Apr. 21, 2007, when she oversaw the signing of the $329-million ZTE and four other contracts, went like this: “Boao, Hainan, China — Nearly a billion dollars worth of new investments in 12 hours. That’s the way things looked like for President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in her brief stay in this picturesque coastal town Saturday as she came and went like a thief in the night, bringing with her an avalanche of Chinese investments to the tune of $904.38 million.” The supposed foreign investment was a farce; China was to lend it, and Filipinos would have had to repay it. And given that the ZTE deal was overpriced but needless, only the phrase about Arroyo’s arrival-departure spoke the truth.

No wonder certain clusters of filling stations can afford to sell fuel up to P5 per liter less than usual. It’s not due to free competition induced by deregulation, since oil firms still raise or roll back by the same amount and time. It’s from smuggling.

The Presidential Anti-Smuggling Group caught Customs men in the act of conniving with an importer to sneak in oil without paying duties. PASG boss Antonio Villar doesn’t call his catch red-handed but black-and-white. He had baited a Customs collector into admitting the racket in writing.

In suing for graft, Villar cited the very memo of Mindanao container port collector Rudy Amistad justifying the fraud. Charged too were no less than Customs chief Napoleon Morales, and Jetti Supply Distribution Inc. owners and managers.

JSDI is licensed to import tax-free oil so long as it sells only inside the Misamis Occidental free port. But Amistad for years has been letting it sell outside, leading to duty collection losses of P288 million in 2007-2008 alone. His alibi for leniency is that anyway JSDI posts bonds 1.5 times the assessed duties to deter outside sales, thus boosting his collections. But Amistad admits to not forfeiting any bond in spite of frequent outside sales. This, the PASG found out, was because authorities had long closed down the bonding firm. Apparently Morales knew all along but had done nothing. He now claims though that he was himself investigating the mess when Villar charged him by surprise.

Smuggling has long plagued the oil industry. One of then-national security adviser Joe Almonte’s first acts in 1992 was to halt hot shipments from Indonesia and Malaysia. Exposed during the Estrada tenure was the sale outside Clark Freeport of oil piped in duty-free from Subic. This is the first time Customs officials were implicated.

Consumers don’t care if their fuel is smuggled, so long as cheap. But on the sly certain officials and carpetbaggers enrich themselves from undue advantage. That’s why oil firms are rejoicing with the news that Villar got ’em.

Playwright Reuel Aguila got goose bumps from the eerie coincidence. The CCP Virgin Labfest decided to stage his one-act play, “Walang Maliw” starting Friday, June 26. It is the third anniversary of the abduction in Bulacan of UP students Sherlyn Cadapan and Karen Empeño, and farmer Manuel Merino. The play is about desaparecidos as seen from the eyes of a mother. The organizers and relatives would be surprised learning about it. Could this be the victims’ way of crying for justice, Aguila wonders.

Directed by Edna Vida Froilan, “Walang Maliw” features Bembol Roco, Gigi Escalante and Julia Enriquez, at the CCP Bulwagang Batute. Play dates: June 26, 3 and 8 p.m.; June 30, 3 p.m.; July 2, 8 p.m.

Lalo maiipit si GMA kapag kumandidato

SAPOL Ni Jarius Bondoc, Pilipino Star Ngayon, Updated June 23, 2009

NAMIMILIPIT si Executive Sec. Ed Ermita sa pagtatang­gol ng mali. Kesyo raw malaking pagkukumbaba sa parte ni President Arroyo kung totoo ang ulat na kakandidato para congresswoman o member of parliament sa 2010, dahil naparurok na ng kapangyarihan. Kesyo marami pang maitutulong si Arroyo na mahihirap. Ito ang sagot niya sa hiyaw ni ex-President Ramos kay Arroyo na tigilan na ang pag-aalembong tungkol sa kandidatura. Bakit mali si Ermita? Mas maraming maitutulong si Arroyo na maliliit kung umalis sa pulitika at lumipat sa kawang-gawa. Pero alam naman ng lahat na kaya balak ni Arroyo mag-mam­babatas ay para makaiwas sa kasong plunder at human rights violations kapag bumaba sa poder sa 2010. Dala­­­wang legal issues ang ibinabandila. Ayon sa mga Arroyo allies, walang batas na nagbabawal sa Presi­denteng tumakbo para sa mababang puwesto, at hindi niya kailangan mag-resign para dito. Ayon naman sa mga kritiko, maihahabla pa rin si Arroyo ng plunder at mass murder dahil ang immunity ng mambabatas sa demanda ay sa mga kaso lang na hindi hihigit sa anim na taon ang sentensiya.

Pero may dagdag na isyu ang kaibigan kong U.E. law dean Amado Valdez. Kapag raw tumakbo si Arroyo, mapapasailalim siya ng Election Code at maaring ihabla sa paglabag nito. Mawawalan siya ng presidential immunity. At ang immunity ay hindi mahahati. Hindi maaring immune si Arroyo sa ibang demanda maliban sa bilang kandidato. Kung nagkataon, maraming maaring isampang demanda kay Arroyo habang tumatakbo pero nananatili bilang Presidente. Maari, halimbawa, idulog sa korte ang kanyang mga gagawing tratado o appointments. Kapag tadtad sa demanda si Arroyo, mapoposasan nang husto ang kanyang pagkilos. At ito naman ang maaring maging rason para siya i-impeach sa kawalan ng ginagawa. Kumbaga, lalo lang mapapabilis ang pagbagsak niya mula sa poder.

Kaya simple ang payo ni Dean Valdez kay Arro- yo: Pinaka-mababa, mag-leave of absence siya sa pagka-Presidente habang kumakandidato.
