Brillantes, Masakit sa Loob na Kasuhan ang Kaibigang si Abalos

INAMIN NI Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Sixto Brillantes na masama ang kanyang loob na sampahan ng kasong electoral sabotage ang dating Comelec chief na si Benjamin Abalos.

Labag man sa kanyang kalooban na kasuhan ang kaibigan, nilinaw naman nitong trabaho lang ang kanyang ginawa, ayon kay Brillantes.

Nagkakaisa sila na marapat lamang masampahan ng kaso si Abalos dahil sa paniniwalang may sabwatang nangyari sa dayaan noong nakalipas na 2007 election, dagdag pa ng poll chief.

Kaugnay nito, inaaral pa ng kanilang panel kung dapat din bang kasuhan ang nagretiro nang si Commissioner Nicodemo Ferrer.

Handa naman ang Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) na makipagtulungan sa mga kinauukulan para sa mga sundalong kasama sa kinasuhan ng electoral sabotage.

Ayon kay AFP spokesman Col. Arnulfo Burgos Jr., hinihintay na lang nila ang pormal na imbitasyon kung kailangang paharapin sa korte si Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP) Capt. Peter Reyes. (PARAZZI REPORTORIAL TEAM)

  1. Brillantes, walang kai-kaibigan basta lagay ang pinag-uusapn, di ba, tong tandang toh…mamamatay na lang pinapairal pa rin ang pagkagahaman sa salapi. Siguradong sa matuwin na daan ka dadaan papuntang impyerno.

  2. Eto pa isang kawatan Mr. President. Paki imbestigahan lang Pnoy para talagang makulong ang lahat na kawatan…walang favoritism:
    The TRUTH about SCTEX (Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, that runs through Hacienda Luisita) is that Hacienda Luisita or the Cojuangco’s was paid by the government P80 million for the right of way for 83 hectares of land that was made part of the expressway. The issue is also one of overpricing, because the P80 million translates to P100 paid by the government to Luisita for every square meter of land ROW, at a time when the selling price of farm land in Tarlac was only from P6 to P8 per square meter. Therefore, the Luisita land paid for by the government was overpriced by at least P92 per sq.m
    On top of the P80 million, government also used P170 million of taxpayers’ money to construct a road interchange that connected Luisita’s private road to SCTEX. Other private companies like Mamplasan, Asia Brewery, Greenfields and Southwoods paid the government so their properties would be connected to the South Luzon Expressway. These companies paid the Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC) P241 million each for the interchanges that connected their properties to SLEX. So how come it is the opposite with Luisita? Instead of Luisita paying the government for the interchange that connected Luisita’s private road to SCTEX, it was the government that paid Luisita. The overpricing has been confirmed by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) during a congressional hearing.
    But it was not the government alone that got a raw deal from the SCTEX project. The poor farmers who had been toiling at Luisita for decades also got a raw deal. As the supposed owners of 32.5 percent of Luisita, the farmers should have gotten at least P25 million of the P80 million ROW payment. Instead, they were only given dividends ranging from 50 centavos to P1.
    A House committee investigation established that Noynoy used his influence as a congressman in 2004 to have the original route diverted to Luisita which at that time was largely inaccessible. In fact, Noynoy served as the proponent of the SCTEX project that directly benefited his family.
    The congressional hearings elicited the fact that Noynoy used his influence as a legislator not only to push the SCTEX project, but specifically the inter-connection of Hacienda Luisita to it, at a huge cost to the government and the taxpayers. The net effect of Noynoy’s machinations is that from its original estimate of P18.7 billion in 1999, the SCTEX project cost was adjusted to P21 billion in 2004 and, by the time it was finished, the cost had ballooned to a whopping P32.808 billion, or twice its original price.
    Noynoy made sure he was present in most meetings related to the construction of SCTEX. To show their disdain for the congressional committee investigating the SCTEX scandal, Noynoy and the Cojuangcos ordered Luisita’s security men to bar congressmen from making an ocular inspection of the Luisita road interchange. The government funded the P170-M interchange, but the representatives of the people were prevented from visiting the site.While all this was going on at Manila Hotel’s Roma Ristoranti, Noynoy was somewhere else in the hotel with Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, having just come from the unveiling of his mother’s monument nearby. In fairness to him, Somebody was sent to look for him so he could reply to these accusations, but the messenger was unsuccessful.
