ORTIGOZA: Relieve and charge  Urbiztondo police chief

August 23, 2014 at 9:29 am Leave a comment

What is happening to our country Region 1 Police Regional Director C/Supt. Roman A. Felix and Pangasinan’s Police Provincial Director S/Supt. Reynaldo Biay?
The Chief of Police (COP) of Urbiztondo, Pangasinan is an utter embarrassment to the Philippine National Police.
After Ronnie Dayan, the driver and body guard of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, poked his .45 caliber firearm to his liquor drinking mate Budoy Palisoc, recklessly fired his pistol in the air, fired his firearm at the destination of his scampering drinking mates, collared the 72 year-old mother of the Palisoc because she said Dayan was looking for him to kill her son, Police Chief Inspector Wilfredo Cabayanan told the media that he did not arrest and immediately file a case against de Lima’s body guard because Dayan, who even dropped by at the police station, and the Palisocs had already amicably settled their conflict.
Son of a gun!
 So Cabanayan compromises the law of the land because
Dayan told him about the settlement and Dayan’s “benefactor” the power-that-be there who probably told this poor COP not to pursue the case?
There were witnesses the police can pro-actively pull out to incriminate Dayan
His case was not only Grave Threat (poking a gun) and Discharge of Firearm (binaril niya ang mga tumatakbong kainuman niya as reported by the media). He can be complained of for Alarm and Scandal (recklessly firing his gun above the air and for disturbing the peace and tranquility of the community), Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004, and Grave Threat (for collaring and threatening to kill all the family members of the Palisoc for P10,000).
A police top brass agreed with me on the nonfeasance of Cabanayam and his being sacked from his post and charged administratively for gross misconduct and criminally for dereliction of duty. He told me a similar case happened  in the province of Ilocos Sur.
“Governor Chavit Singson relieved the provincial director (PD) when he justified to the governor that he told his policemen not to file a case against a suspect there because he and the complainants have settled already the case among themselves,” the police told me.
My police official source, a “leadership genius” PMAier, added that Chavit angrily asked the PD: “Nasa level mo ba ang mag decision na huwag i-reklamo ang  kaso?”
My police pal told me it is not on the level of Cabanayan just to seat down on the case after Dayan committed the alleged crimes, saying “He is neither a prosecutor nor a judge to declare arbitrarily not to file a complaint on the suspect”.
He said the COP of Urbiztondo should remember that he was put there because the town is a “high risk area” after its mayor Ernesto Balolong, a close friend of the President Benigno Aquino III, was assassinated.
“Hindi man lang niya na-isip na dahil diyan sa Urbiztondo, na suspend ang PTCFOR (Permit to Carry Firearm outside Residence) dito sa Pangasinan at naging pahirap sa mga may threat sa buhay dito sa probinsiya,” I opined.
Reason Behind Cha-Cha: P-Noy Fears going to Jail
I got mixed reactions on President Aquino’s  latest pronouncement that he welcomes Charter Change (ChaCha).
Ever since I was espousing in this column that to get rid of that present 12 million unemployed Filipinos, over abused Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), and the moral backlash brought by the migration of Filipinos abroad where the families at home committed immoralities and indulging in illegal drugs because no one watches them, the government should open its restricted xenophobic economic 60-40% provision in the Constitution that favors the financially overstretched Filipino oligarchy.
 My usual argument: More foreign investment in our country means more jobs. More jobs means OFWs from Libya, and other countries would no longer be vulnerable to rape and other abuses. Husband or wife does not resort to infidelity with fellow OFWs or the woman or man next door in the Philippines, or sons and daughters don’t become drug addict or impregnated at an early age because a parent or parents are there to watch them grow.
My usual poser: Why the standard of living of a Thai is much better than those of the Filipinos who in the 1970s have almost the same number of population? Aside from their aggressive government sponsored family planning program, they snared, according to the World Investment Report, last year $12.95 billion of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) while the Philippines contented herself with a minuscule $3.9 billion in the same year.
Now it seems that I digress to why I have a mixed reaction on the President’s amenability for Cha-Cha. Our balding president smarted as seen on his State of the Nation Address (SONA) how he was being treated by the 13-0 of the Supreme Court because of his Disbursement Acceleration Program that jerk-up, er, perk up by more than 6% the country’s Gross Domestic Product.
It means the 13-0 DAP’s decision of the high tribunal is the Sword of Damocles that hangs above his head.
It is a threat to his limb because whether he likes it or not he goes to jail in a non –bailable crime of plunder through technical malversation because he usurped the power of congress to allocate the DAP’s P177 billion fund and channelled it to other economic stimulating projects.
“But he did not pocket any of the P177 billion. He did not profit for himself on the DAP,” objected recently to me by a lawyer when we were conversing.
“That’s beside the point. What we are seeing here is the probable cause for technical malversation as provided in the Revised Penal Code and the Special Law on Plunder found by the Ombudsman and the Sandigabayan, and the warrant of arrest issued by the latter against  former president Aquino in 2016. It was just like Gloria Arroyo who was thrown in the calaboose without bail.”
President Aquino, a person who dreaded to tinker with the Constitution, dread to think of that day he would be rubbing with his hands the iron grills of the detention center for years as he waited for the Sandiganbayan and his pet peeves the Supreme Court decide on the case thus his amenability on the amendments or revision of the Constitution.
With his overwhelming allies in the Houses of Representatives and Senate dependent on the opiate called pork-barrel (who said there was no pork barrel? I’ll discuss it here later), I am sure a Constituent Assembly will be formed soon to change the Constitution.
Forget about the Beatles in their Hard Days Night’s album belting: Money Can’t Buy Me Love.
Money is everything that even Manny Pangilinan of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone is in a quandary how to resuscitate his bleeding TV-5 network tens of millions of pesos against the competition given to it by ABS-CBN and GMA-7 TV networks.
Money is pecuniae obediunt omnia  (money rules the world) in Latin that you now understand since I put its English translation.
“Without money or S.O.P through cut from the solons’ favorite private contractor who get it from the pork, congressmen and senators would no longer support the president all the way like impeaching the chief justice of the Supreme Court and even those present justices in case the president make his clarion call to his allies in Congress,” I told my errand boy Procopio Matulis when we were drinking liquior- San Miguel Lights for my gofer while Mortz baby imbibed Emperador Brandy as my blood pressure shot up lately to 140/100.
But does pork barrel still exist even the high court said it was illegal and unconstitutional?
Pork is alive and kicking according to Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) Chair Patricia Lichuanan and Health Undersecretary Janet Guarin. Both said, as taped by the staff of ACT Teachers Congressman Antonio Tinio that all the P14 million budget for scholarship of the Commission on Higher Education in every congressional district, and all the Medical Assistance Program (MAP) in every government hospital have been intended for the recommendation of the congressman who are the real recipient of that project.
“There are many people out there, who really think I now have P4.1-billion new scholarships. They don’t think it’s the PDAF, they don’t think it’s going to you (lawmakers) … And then I’m supposed to tell them ‘No! No! Don’t do that, because actually the congressmen are all going to get it,’” Licuanan said.
 “We have to go through this kind of semblance. We understand each other. I really want to cooperate.”
She also confided that her regional directors actually thought they had an extra P14 million in scholarship grants for each district so she had to tell them that this was “really for the congressmen,” as written on August 12 by the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s titled  “Party-list rep presents ‘smoking gun’ on pork”.
The same article said: “Tinio also revealed a recording of Garin, a former Iloilo representative, during a meeting between officials of the Department of Health (DOH) and House members last May 20 to iron out the “chaos and confusion” on the medical assistance program (MAP) of lawmakers inserted in the 2014 budget.
Garin said the MAP would only be available to individuals recommended by lawmakers or their designated staff”.
With pork still around at the behest of the president expect the unexpected in Philippine politics as the president march for survival in amending the constitution to extend his term, and try to clip some of of the powers of the Supreme Court as it becomes a threat to his future freedom.
My poser here: Would the president be successful on this brinkmanship?
