Filipino politicians all on edge as top Ph ‘pork barrel scam’ fugitive Janet Lim Napoles ‘surrenders to PNoy’

How exactly does one “surrender” to the President of the Philippines? Does one come knocking at Malacanang’s door with their hands in the air? What exactly does turning a fugitive over to a cabinet Secretary for “processing” mean? Regardles… now that Janet Lim Napoles has reportedly surrendered to Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino III, the plot surrounding the top person-of-interest in the raging controversy around Congressional pork barrel thievery (allegedly) is now allowed to thicken.

Napoles seemingly expresses what she thinks of the P10m bounty on her capture.
Napoles seemingly expresses what she thinks of the bounty on her capture.
Interestingly, Napoles’s “surrender” came shortly after President BS Aquino announced a Php10-million “bounty” on her capture. Whatever the facts surrounding this bit of trivia may be, it need not take a rocket scientist to predict the sorts of speculation this factoid will likely induce across the Philippines’ chattering classes, some of which had already been “confirmed” by Napoles’s lawyer. And what else can the public do but speculate and broker rumours considering that Presidential Security Group (PSG) personnel have banned journalists from entering the Philippine National Police headquarters in Camp Crame where Napoles reportedly surrendered.

Aquino motored to the PNP national headquarters to accept the surrender of Napoles and turned her over to Roxas. The President also met with Napoles’ husband, Jimmy.

But the media was barred from the meeting. Unlike criminal suspects who are immediately presented to the media, the Presidential Security Group ordered the police not to allow journalists to enter the camp.

There was no explanation why Napoles was shielded from the media.

But then why turn a suspected crook over to a cabinet secretary? Isn’t crime a police matter?

One also can’t help but wonder why a Philippine President would even bother to “motor” to Camp Crame to “accept” Napoles’s “surrender”. Some observant netizens have likened this to the President making a courtesy call to the wealthy fugitive.

To be fair, perhaps Napoles may be entitled to courtesy from no less than the President of the Philippines. After all, rumours about her hefty contributions to election campaigns have persisted after “a friend” of Napoles, showbiz personality Lolit Solis, identified Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa as supposedly having solicited campaign contributions from Napoles back then.

Solis was interviewed over at radio dzBB, claiming that she heard Napoles talk on the phone with a certain “Jojo”.

“Magkasama kami ni Jenny (Janet Napoles) that time may kausap siya sa phone parang nanghihingi ng pera,” Lolit told radio hosts Arnold Clavio and Lala Roque.

Prodded by Clavio if it was Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, she said: “Jojo Ochoa.”

She said she was not sure which Jojo was on the other line, but Napoles supposedly told her it was Jojo Ochoa.

According to Solis, this all “happened during Christmas time, months before the 2013 elections.”

This was, of course, reportedly denied by Ochoa as “hearsay”. Ochoa has since “chosen not to dignify these with a response,” according to Assistant Secretary Jed M. Eva III.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) have also reportedly denied rumours that Napoles contributed to BS Aquino’s presidential campaign in 2010.

A friend of Napoles had earlier disclosed that the latter donated to the campaign funds of Aquino, Villar, and Estrada in 2010.

But based on the Statement of Election Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE) that the three submitted to the Comelec during the May 2010 polls nothing shows she had contributions to the presidential candidates’ campaign funds.

What other juicy bits of information lie waiting to be harvested from the Philippines’ most wanted former fugitive? It is no wonder, then, that President BS Aquino is stumbling all over himself to navigate Manila’s traffic-choked streets on the ride from Malacanang to Camp Crame just to personally oversee the baffling handover of an alleged crook from the police to Secretary Mar Roxas.

Did BS Aquino make an exception this time on his promise to be one with the huddled masses’ traffic suffering and invoke his entitlement to a proper motorcade with blaring “wang-wang” sirens to ensure he gets every bit of an advantage over the average Pinoy schmoe in the drive to the PNP’s headquarters?

Who could blame him? The Napoles affair is an “important” thing, after all, right folks?

    El Presidente needs some good publicity in the Pork Barrel Scandal he’s into. As usual, another scapegoat ready for sacrifice.


      (August 29, 2013 - 3:44 pm)

      The president does not need good publicity because he already has it even before he was proclaimed president.


        (August 29, 2013 - 4:46 pm)

        Does good publicity include Hacienda Luisita and slacking in the office? I believe the only “good” publicity he got was from his parents and their biased media allies.


          (August 29, 2013 - 5:29 pm)

          He is no longer involved in HL and not a slacker. It is just a jab punch of the opposition to the president.

          Nah, its more of a sucker punch because its still true.
          He’s still a slacker since it already has been 3 years and he has done nothing but go after his political enemies while lining his KKK and oligiarch friend’s pockets with loads of money.

        Obviously, you are a paid hack of the malacanang miscommunications group. Your president is in cahoots with mrs. napoles since he obviously knows her personally. Why else would she surrender herself to the president?

        Your propaganda is weak and it will no longer fool the filipino people.

    I think she insisted to surrender to him so that they can have some elaborate powder, rouge, eyeliner session in the palace before they begin the other formalities. Just like old times .

      lets see if some reporter uncovers the pnoy aquino lim napoles link

    Thomas Jefferson

    (August 29, 2013 - 3:05 pm)

    I remember a news article in the Philippine Star. It stated that a Palace consultant was immediately fired for being close to Napoles. The consultant was connected with Executive Secretary Ochoa. Why was the consultant not subjected to investigation? Because the Ochoa connection goes straight up to BS Aquino. BS Aquino pretends to be against the pork barrel. But hey he has the biggest pork barrel of them all! Now tagged as the mother of all pork barrels at PHP 1 Trillion Pesos. Mr. Aquino is the godfather of the pork barrel. He knows Napoles because of the Ochoa consultant connection. Is it far fetched to presume that BS Aquino gave shelter and sanctuary to Napoles? Connecting the dots is fun so thank God for news reports! Why the VIP treatment and isolation from the press? I smell a scripted scenario coming soon.

      So sit back, enjoy the show, coz it is all that is gonna happen. Dramatical cow-dung, the stench! My god mon, the stench!


    (August 29, 2013 - 3:18 pm)

    Something is not right with the Executive Secretary and whoever palace factotum. For it is hard to grant them a wider latitude of mental leniency since they could have strongly advised the President not to directly meet and handover a fugitive to the PNP head and DILG secretary, far away from media spotlight. This is not even a transaction we could appropriately say is of Presidential gravitas. Only in the Philippines, where a fugitive can surrender to the President with open arms and away from the glaring media spotlight !!!!

    What were the factotums thinking ? I think they were born with half a functioning brain.

    They should have objected, prevented the President from meeting with Napoles and her husband. OR, a rational-thinking President and his palace advisers could have directed the Secretary of Justice and the NBI to handle the transaction.

    I can only deduce and smell something fishy about the whole affair.

    I get the nasty impression it is more like a synchronized Asian marionette play where the audience pretends to be dumb and thrilled while the unseen master puppeteer deftly manipulates all the characters on stage.

    Where is the transparency and Daang Matuwid in such transaction ?

    No one can fault the public to presume the logic behind the old adage : Show me who your friends are and I can tell you who you are.

    If such impressions are not correct, can the palace advisers and the President be called to clarify to the public at EDSA?


      (August 30, 2013 - 11:58 am)

      Totally agree with you. Why would a fugitive accused of illegal detention (and plunder, treason or anything that would destabilize the state) surrender to the President himself? Obviously, there was something going on. And why would it take the full resources of the executive department (Roxas, Lacierda, PNP chief) to secure a fugitive from a crime of illegal detention? Aquino has not only made himself foolishly part of the fray but has demeaned his office by even talking to a fugitive. Well, I’m not surprised, he did it with Lacson. Look where he is right now: up for a Cabinet position and irony of all ironies, being touted as chief investigator for pork. We are in for interesting times, people.


    (August 29, 2013 - 3:19 pm)

    You must be happy that Napoles surrendered through our president. Hats off to him. He is the only one that can do it. And never compare her to GMA, because everyone saw how she attempted to escape the country and never surrendered.


      (August 29, 2013 - 3:23 pm)

      And are you aware of how lim napoles knows pnoy.


        (August 29, 2013 - 3:30 pm)

        They maybe close, but that doesn’t mean that the president will abuse the system in favor of Napoles. He will be fair as always.

          Being uneducated and ill informed without the ability to state a case clearly, comprehensively, but concisely, and repeating meaningless motherhood statements without rhyme or reason is being not only moronic but childish and contributes nothing to any dialogue on change.

          No wonder you do not have a job.
          Over and out.

          “So being fair is moronic? Maybe for you. But for us, Filipinos, we want change.”

      Butt hurt siomai? The heat must have fried your brains yellow again. Napoles surrendered through your president because he knows her. She was extended VIP treatment. He is the only one than do what? What he did shows that the highest corridors of power are infected with the pork scam! Blame game again on GMA? She never surrendered? Are you into shabu? Cut the substance abuse boy. WHAT A PUNY MALACANANG PALACE TROLL! 🙂


        (August 29, 2013 - 3:37 pm)

        There is no special treatment for her, the president only gave her maximum security because she is under threat.

          Thomas Jefferson

          (August 29, 2013 - 3:44 pm)


          Napoles is not under threat from the guilty members of the congress and the senate. Remember your favorite president dictator BS Aquino controls the legislature and that includes the pork barrel. Mr. Aquino is protecting Napoles from the media and the Sovereign Filipino People right? As Mr. Spock would say to an alien life form like you… Fascinating!


          (August 29, 2013 - 3:47 pm)

          There are threats from other legislators who are involved in the scam and wants to silence her so it is not only the people outside that will attempt to assassinate her.

          (August 30, 2013 - 7:39 am)

          I would like to believe that there is no special treatment for her but given that fact that he drove to Camp Crame for the surrender of Napoles does not jive with that view.

          Maybe there is a security factor why the president himself went to a suspect who is surrendering but just the same the confusion has already been made.

          Why do they call it ‘surrendered to the president’ when Napoles allegedly went to Camp Crame? Isn’t that surrendering to the PNP?

          I mean, let’s be accurate here. Napoles would never have surrendered to PNoy if the president has to go to a place where she is being held up.

          Since that’s what happened, a special treatment issue has a leg to stand on. Why will a president rush to a place where a suspect is being held up and declare it a surrender? She’s already under custody, so the surrender issue is dead on the water.

          Enlighten me, please.

    So why would Napoles surrender to BS Aquino? Because BS “pork” Aquino is known by her. Mr. Aquino is very much a part of the pork barrel scam. Aside from this he gets free black propaganda looking like an anti-graft and corruption crusader. Still trying to fool the people about his Matuwid na Daan. You can’t fool all the people all of the time! The smell from the pork barrel scam is rotten and is the sickly sweet smell of death. The Matuwid na Daan is no more!

      ” Aquino is very much a
      part of the pork barrel scam ”

      He is never a part of this scam. He even made an anti graft committee that will handle the pork scam under de Lima and Morales. And we have to remember that president won as president because he will fight corruption.

          (August 29, 2013 - 8:27 pm)

          It is a known fact that she was hiding in cebu because she was too much of a coward to be at edsa. The true heroes were the ones that were there and before you even say that I should have been there,I wasn’t even born yet so your argument is invalidated.

          (August 30, 2013 - 7:11 am)

          I am more or less incline to go with what you said above because you culled it from our experience in the past, I’m sure. From Marcos to Erap to Gloria, the consistency is undeniable, those in power never gets to serve time like ordinary people and they get to keep a part of their loot.

          On the other hand, I would also like to look at this Napoles case as a test whether Pres. Noynoy would make a difference and thread a path that no one has done before him: confiscate the ill-gotten wealth, if proven to be true and convict and imprison Napoles and her cohorts for good.


    (August 29, 2013 - 4:48 pm)

    All conspiracy theories aside I really didn’t find anything wrong with the whole event other than it being a huge security risk for PNoy and the fact that it might set a precedent in the future events involving the surrender of well known criminals.

    It might have gone a lot worse had the President refused to accept her surrender. A dead Napoles is a useless Napoles especially with that whole Cadavero fiasco from a while back.


      (August 29, 2013 - 5:16 pm)

      Better still if pnoy had ‘other meeting’ and devolved responsibility.
      It gives napoles more creedence than she merits and feeds her delusions of grandeur.
      Bad pr from the miscommunications group as per usual.
      And why then would pnoy spend an additional 2 hours taking her to camp crame and tucking her in.
      Am sure it gave international leaders who are handling a potential war on syria a momentary laugh


        (August 29, 2013 - 5:42 pm)

        Why are you insisting that the surrender of Napoles is pr? It is not. She wants to be safe and the president could give it to her.


          (August 29, 2013 - 7:39 pm)

          you’re a blind noytard. obviously the surrender is scripted..


          (August 29, 2013 - 8:31 pm)

          The only thing the president can give her is access to his makeup collection .


          (August 29, 2013 - 11:09 pm)

          Penoy and Napoles will negotiate behind closed doors in order to hide Penoy’s involvement in the pork barrel scandal. Of all the crooks in the government, Penoy is the biggest hypocrite.


          There is a reason why Penoy supporters are out for major damage control.


      (August 30, 2013 - 3:28 pm)

      I don’t see any security risk for PNoy in the surrender of Napoles. What I saw was security risk for Napoles. She’s the prime suspect who allegedly have cohorts in gov’t. in amassing billions of pesos through pork barrel.

      I don’t see any reason why will PNoy would refuse Napoles’ surrender.

    Thomas Jefferson

    (August 29, 2013 - 6:52 pm)

    I have a question for siomai. Duh, if Janet Napoles surrendered to Mr. BS Aquino… should Mr. Aquino receive the PHP 10 Million Pesos reward since he “arrested” her and sent her to Camp Crame? Another question is the PHP 10 Million Pesos reward sourced from the presidential pork? Oink! Oink!

    Thomas Jefferson

    (August 29, 2013 - 7:06 pm)

    So… I like pattern recognition and connecting the dots:

    1. The Malacanang Palace consultant who was
    recently fired was connected to Janet
    Napoles. This consultant was never
    investigated. The fired consultant was
    connected with Executive Secretary Ochoa.
    We also now that Ochoa is close to
    president BS Aquino.

    2. Janet Napoles surrendered to Mr. BS Aquino
    in Malacanang Palace. She was either
    brought there or was given shelter and
    sanctuary in Malacanang Palace.

    3. Mr. BS Aquino is part of the pork barrel
    scam as he controls the power of the purse.
    He also controls the legislature in the
    senate and the lower house and is party
    to their pork as he orders the DBM to
    release the same.

    Conclusion: Mr. BS Aquino is part and parcel of the pork barrel scam and is as guilty as hell!

    Siomai, just because you work for Noynoy does not make him Superman or even Supergirl. Maybe the latter without the “Super”. And no, Lacierda is nobody’s statesman. Just a high profile person who portrays inaccuracies. Do what you do best, go back to Noynoy and strap on ’em knee pads.

    Siomai, you are both outnumbered and outgunned here. If not ad hominems are directed against you, there are all hard counters to your Pro-PNoy arguments here. I think it is highly counter-productive for you to debate with the GRP crew.

    On scripted scenarios… Sometimes I like to think out loud. Why was the scripted scenario of an assassination plot floated against Janet Napoles? Was it done to ensure her selective silence in the coming trial? A worst case scenario sees the script as intended to prepare the peoples’ minds for the coming murder of Janet Napoles. This of course will come from the highest corridors of power. After all, dead people tell no tales. What do you people think?


      (August 30, 2013 - 3:26 am)

      I think your speculation borders on realm of possibility given the fact that the controversy is so serious and lots of people in power not only stands to lose pork, este, perks but could also be indicted in a case if Napoles decide to sing.

      However, I disagree with the insinuation that the ‘coming murder of Janet’ would “come from the highest corridors of power.”

      That would already be singling out and making an accusation on a particular party when we all know that numerous people are interested in Napoles not spilling the beans on them.


      (August 30, 2013 - 9:02 pm)

      “This of course will come from the highest corridors of power.”

      This is plausible considering that the corrupt officials in the highest corridors of power have the most to lose if and when Napoles decides to sing.

    The queen of the pork barrel scam Janet Napoles was reunited with the king godfather of the pork barrel scam BS Aquino. Photo ops do not lie. A bad script is a bad script. There was really VIP treatment from BS. The Malacanang scripted zarzuela continues as BS is made to appear as a graft and corruption crusader (hahahaha!). Add the fact that the palace will try to “hit” non-administration and opposition politicians as scapegoats. Oh I forgot… Noynoy’s script is intended to defuse the continuing Pork Barrel protests. Will we allow ourselves to be deceived by Malacanang’s dictator tenant?


      (August 30, 2013 - 9:07 pm)

        Well, eventually it is going to happen or it may not, lols. Unless they change the gimmick a bit like maybe she’d be on crutches or maybe she’d be in a segway lol.

        Doesn’t really matter now, I just find everything funny about this show called the “Pork Barrel Scam” starring Janet Lim Napoles and co. Directed by “insert-whoever-you-think-it-is”

        I read somewhere that she’s in an airconditioned jail cell? Wow..great. There goes our tax pesos 😀

        I know for sure there are people in jail that has the same condition as her and yet they don’t get that kind of treatment..kinda shows you what money, power and influence can buy. Feel free to add more.

        I guess all in all, let’s just tune in next week.

    c) how many times has janet lim napoles met pnoy aquino
    d) will she get bail
    e) the number of opposition politicians fingered
    f) the number of administration politician fingered
    g) how much did janet lim napoles contribute – directly or indirectly – to ochoa’s new mansion


    (August 30, 2013 - 2:01 pm)

    JL Napoles is so publicly tainted that there is no possible script they could come up with that will not end up sounding like something out of an M. Night Shyamalan film. They’re better off with a gag order on JLN.

    Why don’t they just stage an attempt on JLN’s life and hide her again, but this time, officially “for her own good”


    Exile her where she will seem to have killed herself out of humiliation and depression..


    (August 30, 2013 - 2:23 pm)

    Here is a good scenario, they bring out Napoles by telling us she surrendered to the Pnoy.

    They turn Napoles as state witness to the extent of bending the rules to their favor, and she sings her heart out against Pnoy political rival/enemies but not against his KKKK.

    And all the bobong Pinoy say, ” hang galeng ni Pnoy!!!!!, Daang matuwid!!!!!”


    (August 30, 2013 - 4:14 pm)

    Kumbaga sa nilambat sa dagat si napoles ay panapon, hindi sya isda na pwedeng pakinabangan….Compare napoles to Lucio Tan. Hinahabol ba ni Pnoy? Hindi!!!! Si gloria lang ang malakas ang loob noon na habulin tong lucio na ito pero walang nangyari dahil galit na galit ang publiko kay gloria. Si gloria din ang nagpapamadali ss supreme court noon na i sequester na ang hacienda luisita pero till now wala pa ring resulta kasi inupuan na ng appointee ni Pnoy.

    The next part of this drama will be the demonizing, linking and focusing on possible presidentiables and opposition/minority members as the culprit of the scam with Napoles as the star witness.

    (August 30, 2013 - 9:19 pm)

    As of press time… An RTC Judge approved the transfer of JL Napoles from Makati City Jail to Fort Sto Domingo in Sta Rosa City. Why the far away and isolated venue? Why is the government spending so much time and resources in transferring again JL Napoles? Would she be safer in Fort Sto Domingo? Is the assassination excuse sufficient to transfer her again? Napoles is a threat liability to the guilty in the highest corridors of power. This is true. Will an attempt happen in the province of Laguna? Tuloy ba ang scripted zarzuela? Only time will tell.


    (August 30, 2013 - 10:10 pm)

    Pinoy journalist lino celle announces janet lim napoles is in custody and will turn state witness according to his highly credible source in DoJ.

    the point is that Lino celle published this 6 hours before the farce of the aquino 10 million peso bounty in the morning and then the miraculous surrender to aquino in the evening.

    All stage managed and deals have been done. But what deals.

      (August 31, 2013 - 11:19 am)

      Just reeks of “let’s get our stories straight”.

      Although some people take the Palace behavior at face value here is one:

      Cynthia J. Patag

      Stop the noise please
      August 30, 2013 at 10:39am
      Janet Napoles’ surrender came after PNoy announced a P10-million bounty for information leading to her arrest.

      A lot of anti-PNoy like pro-GMA trolls and pro-pork barrel scam lawmakers have unleashed polluted remarks regarding the surrender and detention of JanetNapoles to destabilize the credibility if not the competence of PNoy in having the No.1 fugitive in our country NOW under police custody.

      Napoles is classified as a high risk suspect. The crime she committed is of national importance. You do not accord routine security measures accorded to ordinary criminals to a suspect like Janet Napoles. A breach of security could endangered if not ‘wipe out’ the life of Janet Napoles which instantly could paralyze the prosecution of the guilty pork scam lawmakers. If that happens, whom will they blame? PNoy AGAIN?

      With the diligent initiatives from the Palace, they were able to negotiate the surrender of Napoles a few hours after Napoles lawyer made remarks on media that Napoles is willing to surrender as long as her safety is assured.

      By accomodating to the request, government has saved P10M of taxpayers money for the reward for her capture. If PNoy did not accomodate the request and Napoles remains at large? And the hunt continues, whom will they blame? PNoy AGAIN?

      The decision to subject Napoles to an escalated security detail from the Heritage Park to Palace to Camp Crame is a judgement call of the President. PNoy must make sure that Napoles is safe and secured at all cost and by all means.

      “It’s to emphasize to everybody (that) it’s important for her to stay alive.”-PNoy

      The decision to isolate Napoles from other detainees and placed Napoles to a safer small air-conditioned room with a small couch and desk and guarded 24/7 inside by 2 female guards is a security control measure adopted to neutralize the imminent danger of being exposed to death threats from criminal elements inside a common jail area. If Napoles is killed inside common prison jail, whom will they blame? PNoy AGAIN?

      We will lose our opportunity to prosecute and imprison all guilty pork scam lawmakers if every action the government executes on Napoles is subject to noisy theoretical criticisms and grandstanding speculations.

      “Let the ‘hunt for the truth’ begin following the surrender and detention of Janet Napoles.”

      Stop the noise please.

        I’d rather think that the press has too much freedom. The KBP and the NPC are toothless in regulating the antics of their peers, hence their irresponsible and biased behavior.Remember the Luneta Incident?

        My take on the matter? Let the government have its way just this once (yeah, so sue me). If Napoles “disappears”, then let loose the hounds.

        Though I’m afraid my statement would be prophetic…


      (September 1, 2013 - 6:46 pm)

      More like freedom of depress lol.

      Seriously, I get the feeling that there’s not going to be any truth, just different perspectives with more lies and excuses, to add to that the never-ending blame game and finger pointing together with name dropping which seems to be one of the favorite things to do at the moment. There won’t be any justice, instead ‘just tiis’ for the next episode.

      I would have commended her at least if she just ended her life right now, but then again it won’t solve anything until she spills everything that involves her with this case.

      But with the way things are going, I see the looming clouds of “paawa” coming up soon just to tickle the emotional “I-forgive-you” switch from the forgetful masses.

      They love money so much, why not feed it to them for real. After all, they are greedy, they pride having too much that they can’t use all that money their entire life, they even lust for it and covet as much as they can. /rant_over


        (September 1, 2013 - 8:42 pm)

        I thought the Coast Guard shooting would end up clearing those that filled the Taiwan vessel with .50 cal bullets but it turned out authentic and good it just took long time so I feel that this witness has so much to tell, lol and she needs to be protected. She can’t even stay with the police force because according to them anyone can come in with an ID card? Whats that say about the police force they can’t even protect people, so my next question is why have a police force then if it can’t be fixed, that should be the next step there’s no security at a police station anybody can pick up the prisoner, lol you can’t make this stuff up, where’s the outrage?


          (September 2, 2013 - 12:39 am)

          @McAl, sadly there isn’t much, if any.


          (September 2, 2013 - 10:30 pm)

          Anyone can come with an ID guess they have no idea with stuff like security clearances or maybe they do have those but they are apparently clueless.

          Well, so much for us paying them to do their jobs. 😀

          Outrage…there’s always outrage anywhere and everywhere but it is apparently misguided at best, but sometimes it does hit the mark but not often as some people claim to do so. It’s just a fad, the same thing with trending things in and out of the internet.


          (September 2, 2013 - 11:41 pm)

          The information about the ID card was on one of the news channels, lol.. not even hidden but something that could be fixed, it was addressed but like many stories here, there’s no follow up.


        (September 3, 2013 - 4:26 am)

        That’s the problem..which is a common occurrence around that can be seen almost everywhere..they never finish what they started, and if they do everybody else pretty much forgot about it or is sick and tired of it.

        Pretty much almost every single issue didn’t have a decent closure due to I guess “things that aren’t in their control but in reality they can but they just don’t do it”.

        They will just continue to drag things along for as long as they want to because they can until who knows when it will end or I guess whenever something big will happen (ex. scandals or whatever) to just cover things up a bit.


          (September 4, 2013 - 12:16 pm)

          Seems like the more digging thats done the more issues start to pop up and how can this level of corruption be fixed, it can’t… What a mess, after days, months and years on the media nobody will care it’s not news day any more. If no concrete plans are set in place to fix the many issues it’s just talking and agreement and then no action.


    (September 2, 2013 - 2:01 pm)

    The ABS CBN’s flash news today (9/2) at 10AM caught my attention, the newscaster mentioned that Janet Napoles as “the root of pork barrel scam”. I find it quite misleading, diverting the people’s attention from the real root of the pork barrel scam – the opaque, unaccounatble pork barrel system set by the Executive barnch.


      (September 4, 2013 - 12:55 pm)

      While I may agree with you on the misnomer ‘root of pork barrel scam’ made by the ABS newscaster I cannot help but noticed you also made a misleading statement when you alleged about the ‘real root of the pork barrel scam’ pointing at the Executive branch.

      The ABS mix-up is much closer to the story than your own ala-parapraxis statement. Let me tell you why I said that.

      Napoles was widely believed to be in the center of pork barrel scam. She’s under custody right now and will soon be charge with crimes that more or less fall on corruption matters.

      The Executive branch, on the other hand, faces no pending charges about “the opaque, unaccountable pork barrel system’ that can be called the ‘real root of the pork barrel scam.’ No such thing.

      While the ABS may offer a reason that their newscaster simply made an honest mistake in its use of words against Napoles, your statement are very categorical and strongly shows malice intent on your part.

      I maybe wrong but your post is quite clear about your allegation.
