Go-Marcos-Villar: Senator Bets Affected by Alleged 70% Kickback by the DPWH Secretary’s Kin

senator





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

According to the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) Secretary, Mark Villar,  the road widening is a top priority project of the Boracay inter-agency task force  The agency limits the authority of a district engineering office to implement big-ticket construction projects to those not exceeding P100 million. Over that, it needs the approval of the DPWH. This is why the laborers from North Cotabato are still waiting for their wages after 3 long years. Two lawyers at the department allegedly ask for 70% kickback to release their P36.6 billion claims. Both are relatives of Sec. Villar. One from mother’s side and the other is from the father’s side. See how this case affects the bets for Senator.

Pending Wages of North Cotabato Laborers

Esmaulana Global Ventures Company Limited requests for the urgent payment of the P36,645,704.91 unpaid balance from the outstanding billing of the road right of way. This is to augment the salary wages of all laborers in the barangays of Kabacan, North Cotabato, Province Region XII.




Bong Go’s Efforts to Enlighten the DPWH

SAP Bong Go, in fact, issues an explanation to the DPWH that the said claim is not affected by the new resolution that requires the claimants’ new documentation because the transaction starts since 3 years ago.  However, the alleged aunts of the Secretary use their influence with a certain Atty. Lardizabal and an Atty. Flores to insist their 70% kickback.




Gov. Imee Marcos and Cynthia Villar Alliance

This group of laborers in Mindanao is grief-stricken that the inspiration was given to them by Gov. Imee Marcos to pursue their quest for the deuterium exploration can evaporate into the hot air. The governor is an advocate for renewable energy and she gets a likely ally in the person of a Senatorial electionist, Cynthia Villar.






The  Conflict Among the Bets for Senator

Go, Marcos and Villar are all running for Senator. Despite the fact that they are supporters of the President who approves the claim. There seem to be some vested interests in the transaction that made the people in this part of Mindanao suffer.

Will PACC Look into DPWH-DOE SOP to Fast-Track Credit Payment for Fuel Extraction?

credit





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

PACC member and spokesman Greco Belgica is a notable supporter of the President and an anti-Robredo stalwart. He previously hinted on the agency’s recommendation to fire at least four government officials. Although the Malacanang spokesperson, Atty. Harry Roque denied it, Du30 just fired the Customs Deputy Commissioner, Noel Patrick Prudente. His alleged excessive personal travels are under investigation. Now, the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission announces the 25% incentive for whistleblowers. Will it listen to the people in Mindanao to fast-track the release of the government’s credit? This is for the right of way payment allegedly by DPWH under Secretary Mark Villar that can be subject to SOP procedure that the President tags as corruption.

Approved by the President

A big reward awaits everyone who would become whistleblowers. Those who would give information to the PACC that will lead to a successful recovery of ill-gotten wealth can avail of the offer. Belgica added that this provision has already been approved by the PACC en banc and by President Rodrigo Du30 himself. The President on the other hand, also verbally approved the road right of way claims of Maguindanaoans but the DPWH seems to follow the previously corrupted system.




Government Claim for Fuel Extraction Funds

The claim was undertaken since 3 years ago and that the EO 153 issued by Secretary Villar in early 2017 does not cover said claims. almost all of Villar’s 9 lawyers either resigned or were transferred. The recipients are banking on the said payment to pursue the requirement of the DOE for the extraction of deuterium and other oil and gas components in the Liguasan Marsh located at the Cotabato Basin.




SOP

Secretary Villar assigned his assistant to coordinate with the claimants’ team for coordination. He does not handle transactions directly. It is uncertain that the required 10% fee of the 13.7 B claim is a legal SOP requirement or a mere under the table transaction. The lady approached the group about 2 months ago for the said deal. The right of way claimants have the SPA of the owners at Mindanao but the 10% fee is a substantial reduction for the oil and gas exploration set-up requirement of the DOE to issue its permit.









Not Looking Good for Villar

Could PACC run after big political and business names like Villar? This does not look good for Senator Cynthia Villar who seeks for re-election this 2019. Thousands of people in Mindanao are under the impression that what is due to them has been withheld long enough by her son. It is a sad thing that the Coco Levy fund lawmaker can be put in a bad light.

Anomalies Under Du30’s Nose: BBM’s Protest & DPWH’s Deuterium Delay

deuterium





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

President Rodrigo Du30 as what Bongbong Marcos said is very determined to give the people not just a clean election but a corruption-free government. However, the current form of government allows some public officials to nurture their own interests. Take the case of the deuterium gas exploration. Since 2013, Marcos said that hydrogen as a fuel is processed from deuterium, or heavy hydrogen, which is abundant in the Philippines. His Senate Bill No. 408, or the proposed hydrogen research, promotion and development act, creates a hydrogen research and development center that “spearheads the development of hydrogen, which is the fuel of the future.” Well, the future is already here but for some reasons, delayed by people in authority.

[VIDEO]: President Du30 is determined to have a clean election. Bongbong Marcos is saying that even the President believes that there are problems in the 2016 elections.

The Reality of a Vision

Marcos said previously that the volatility of oil price in the world market slows down the country’s efforts for a rapid economic growth. This is because the Philippines is highly dependent on oil imports. Under Marcos’ proposal, the hydrogen research and development center is under the Department of Science and Technology. The center spearheads the research, development, and use of hydrogen in the country. At the same time, it serves as the core network of foreign investment on the development and use of hydrogen.




The DOE Insight

The DOE insinuates that there are issues that slacken the exploration activity due to the economic and political crisis. However, DOE officials are positive with the current developments in the political scene like the change in administration. That enables the country to regain the confidence of investors and, thus, the economy is expected to soon recover.  Like Marcos, Du30 is very keen on oil and gas exploration. However, current corruption scandals affecting many public servants in the past administration made many officials very careful in money matters.




Joint Circular

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and Department of Energy (DOE) have a joint circular to provide uniform guidelines. This is for the payment and relocation of Electric Cooperative (EC) facilities affected by government projects. Although this is unrelated, it can follow the same structure that can explain the DPWH’s great involvement in oil and gas exploration compliance, which is key to realize the deuterium extraction project. Paper trails show that some vast amounts of funds are withheld at the DPWH that hampers the progress of the said project.




Deuterium Update

The Department of Energy starts to process the Exploration Service Contract 64 and the Cotabato basins in 2015. A list of requirements for the explorers’ strict compliance follows. However, there is some kind of hiccups in the DPWH department. They recently resort to seeking the President’s help in December 2017. Chief Presidential Legal Counsel, Salvador S. Panelo, immediately endorses the matter to Special Assistant to the President, Sec. Christopher Lawrence T. Go. Any words from the Department of Public Works Secretary Mark Villar?

The Philippine Government’s Flood Management Plan for Metro Manila

You might be asking – what is the government doing with the flood problems in Metro Manila? So, I think that it is best to post something on this subject and I was lucky to come across with this comprehensive plan initiated by DPWH or Department of Public Works and Highways. Read this report:

DPWH report: Flood management master plan for

Metro Manila and surrounding areas

by: http://www.gov.ph

After the flood events brought about by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng in September and October 2009, respectively, that caused severe damage in Metro Manila and surrounding areas, the World Bank has provided a technical grant in the amount of $1.5 million under the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery Trust Fund of the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). http://www.gov.ph/2013/06/19/dpwh-report-flood-management-master-plan-for-metro-manila-and-surrounding-areas/



Comprehensive as it may seem, most plan of actions herein are very general and they normally involve the participation of community residents. It got me thinking that when you have the slightest flood problem in your area – and no one is responsible enough to do something about it, it is your duty to report it to authorities. This is because – according to PD 1067 or the Water Code of the Philippines, all bodies of water belong to the government and it is their duty to manage it  using taxes or the People’s money.
