Should Bongbong Marcos Pay HK$90,000, US$24,678.50 for Election Safekeeping Overseas?

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos receives a letter dated August 1, 2017, which the COMELEC ‘s Office for Overseas Voting sent the PET. It requested for payment of storage fees. This is a result of the “safe keeping” of various election paraphernalia in Hong Kong that amounts to HK$ 90,000, New York at US$ 24,678.50 and 18 other posts with no amounts mentioned.

[VIDEO]: All 58 certificates of canvass from 82 foreign posts have arrived in Manila, Commission on Elections Commissioner Arthur Lim said. The votes can be crucial in deciding the cliffhanger vice presidential race Leni Robredo and Bongbong Marcos.



Marcos Leads in Partial Count

It is noted that Marcos leads the VP race against Leni Robredo by more than 72,000 votes among overseas Filipino voters. The running total of overseas votes for Marcos was 156,123, according to the tabulation disclosed by Commission on Elections Commissioner Rowena Guanzon. Robredo got 84,144 votes. This indicates that Marcos was enjoying a lead of 72,979 votes.




Only Three Posts

The certificates of canvass from Tel Aviv, Rome and Bahrain are not yet in during the partial count, Guanzon said. It was not disclosed how many votes are involved in these three posts. The turnout for the overseas absentee voting is 429,802 voters in total.



Election Procedure Not Followed

As the local count shifted to Robredo’s favor, PPCRV communications director Ana de Villa-Singson said that some election returns might not be reflected on their electronic transmission screen. Some election returns from local precincts were already canvassed without transmitting the votes from the precinct to the Comelec transparency server. This could happen if the proper procedure is not followed, Singson added.








Good that it’s a Marcos

The electoral protest fees for the recount alone are already a hefty 66 Million Pesos. Aside from the overseas voting safe keeping liabilities, Marcos may have to pay the Smartmatic penalty for not returning the VCMs on time as per contract. What if it’s not Bongbong Marcos who has the means to settle these outrageous expenses? Will there be a case?

Ombudsman Turns to Honasan as SC Bars LP from Marcos-Robredo Protest

Ombudsman





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Selective Justice of the previous LP administration continues through the Ombudsman. This is the perception of the public when Conchita Carpio-Morales orders the arrest of Senator Gringo Honasan. The avid Bongbong Marcos is bound to join Senators Jinggoy Estrada, Bong Revilla, and Juan Ponce Enrile over the PDAF scam anomaly. At the same time, the Supreme Court bars VP Leni Robredo’s supporters to help her in paying her balance for her counter-protest against Marcos.

[VIDEO]: The Office of the Ombudsman charges Senator Gringo Honasan with graft Tuesday over the diversion of his pork barrel or priority development assistance fund.



Supreme Court Decision

The Supreme Court that sits as PET rejects the petition of Vice President Leni Robredo’s supporters. They asked SC to allow them to help pay the remaining fee for the election protest. The Piso Para sa Laban ni Leni members are disappointed with the High Court’s decision.




Cannot Accept

Robredo’s supporters cannot accept the SC ruling. “We shall set forth arguments not previously raised and build on points already stated in the petition,” he added. Presidential Decree No. 46 prohibits public officials from receiving gifts or any other valuable thing on any occasion when the gift is given because of an official’s position. This is regardless of whether or not the gift is given for past favors, or if the giver is expecting to receive a favor or better treatment in the future.




Ombudsman Turns to Honasan

The Sandiganbayan earlier issued the Senator a warrant of arrest over the alleged misuse of his P29.1-million Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or pork barrel in 2012. This follows the Office of the Ombudsman’s filing of the case against the senator and his co-accused on August 1. Honasan may post bail once arrested. At this time of writing, he already surrendered to the PNP.








Honasan is Innocent

Honasan denies the allegations. He said that he is “completely innocent of the charges” against him. “All my life I have fought everything I am accused of, and I will continue to do so,” he declared. Honasan faces two counts of graft for violating Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. This is for “giving any private party any unwarranted benefits, advantage or preference in the discharge of his official administrative or judicial functions through manifest partiality, evident bad faith or gross inexcusable negligence.”

Bongbong Marcos: Let the Authorities Decide on Smartmatic-Bautista Election Anomaly

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos in an ambush interview said that he has no idea on the Smartmatic bribery between the automated election machine supplier and Comelec chair, Andres Bautista as divulged by his wife, Patricia Bautista. He urged everyone to let the authorities decide on the matter.

Spare Liza Marcos

The former Senator denied that his wife, Liza Marcos was the bridge of the meeting between the President and Mrs. Bautista who is battling a personal conflict with her husband over their finances. “We don’t interfere in marital quarrels,” he told reporters in an interview at the House of Representatives.



Marital Affairs

Du30 also confirmed meeting separately with the Bautistas in Malacañang after Patricia called his attention on her accusations against her husband. She speculates that he has unexplained wealth worth nearly P1 billion. He, however, refused to meddle on the marital issues and channeled the alleged anomaly to the investigators.




No Comment

Marcos does not want to comment on the hidden wealth anomaly of Chairman Bautista as revealed by his wife. Reporters are adamant to get his side because this case directly favors his election protest against VP Leni Robredo. He insists after all that he had no knowledge whatsoever in the said issue.









Immaterial

The namesake of the late President Ferdinand Marcos stresses that his opinion is immaterial if he believes in the accusation or not. It is better to let the case go through its due course. Like the President, he does not want to influence the authorities’ finding on the matter because of the political situation that he is in.

Bautista’s 2016 Election Highlights: Sex, Smartmatic and Bongbong Marcos

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

In a shocking admission, Comelec Chair Andres Bautista revealed that he was a victim of theft and sexual abuse at the time his wife took all the alleged documents and bank statements that are now being presented. His sex life is now out in the open. Commission sidelines are divulged and Bongbong Marcos is implicated in the process that also discredits the integrity of the 2016 election.

[VIDEO]: Hindi si misis, kundi si mister ang nangangaliwa, ayon sa abogado ni Patricia Bautista na si Atty. Lorna Kapunan. Dagdag pa ni Kapunan, may kakaibang hilig o fetish si Andres Bautista pagdating sa sex.




Comelec Chair’s Sexual Fantasy

Patricia Bautista’s lawyer insists that it’s not her client who had extra-marital affairs but it’s the chairman who has some kind of “Latigo” sexual fantasy. He even has accounts in some pornographic sites where he is into young boys or he sometimes portrayed himself as a woman. One of their condo units was even converted into a sex den. She divulges this to justify that it’s not Mrs. Bautista who is immoral but the Comelec Chairman.



Smartmatic Deal during Election

In her statement to the NBI, Mrs. Bautista said that her husband got commissions from Divina law firm. These are referral fees for Smartmatic, Baseco, and the United Coconut Planters Bank. “Nilo Divina’s checks in Bautista’s name can prove this.” Smartmatic is the supplier of vote counting machines. Divina did not elaborate on his plans to file a complaint against her but confirmed that he will file a libel case against her.




PCGG Ghost Employees

Mrs. Bautista’s lawyer also discloses that Chairman Bautista also had some ghost employees when he was PCGG chair. She tries to prove that Andres Bautista is corrupt contrary to his allegations against his wife. That she just wants money. Therefore, she allows herself to be used by politicians.









Evidence vs Hearsays on Bongbong Marcos

Since PCGG is an agency that chases the alleged stolen wealth of the Marcoses, Bongbong Marcos easily surfaces into the scenario without mentioning his name. This disclosure of Mrs. Bautista is just in time for the upcoming recount for his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. However, the chairman’s political defense remains hearsays compared to the evidence presented by his wife.

Politics, Liza Marcos are Just Comelec Chair’s Escape Goats for Corrupt Election Practices

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Comelec Chair, Andres Bautista is now under a bad light after his wife reveals his alleged ill-gotten wealth. No matter how he discredits his own wife’s testimonies, all evidence still points to him. The name of Atty. Liza Marcos, Bongbong Marcos’ wife even surfaces through media inquiries – but Paricia Bautista denies this. According to her lawyers, politics got nothing to do with the signed affidavit. This is despite its huge implications on the integrity of the 2016 election.

Ultimate Purpose

Patricia Bautista, wife of Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista said; “I have also been told that several PR practitioners have been hired to besmirch my reputation. Still, despite all these attempts to discredit me, I am issuing this statement with one goal: to fight for the truth, for myself, my children, and for our country.”



Verifiable Evidence

Mrs. Bautista discovers several items in their home like money in checkbooks, passbooks, several offshore accounts, millions of bundles of cash, and various titles to properties that are not in his SALN which was at P176.3 million. 30 bank accounts with the Luzon Development Bank Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City amounting to P227,701,053 in total; five bank accounts with the Luzon Development Bank Makati branch with a total amount of P101,519,909; two accounts with Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation at P257,931.60 and US dollar 12,778.30; and an account with Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) amounting to Hong Kong dollar948,358.97




Real Properties and Investments

Real estate properties that the Comelec chair purchased but are not in his SALN are Unit 17A, The Suite at One Bonifacio High Street plus parking slots and The District in San Francisco, California, USA. Apart from local properties. Overseas investments in the form of his interests in corporations and loan agreements are Bauman Enterprises Limited that Bautista set up with the Bank of Singapore; Mantova International Limited, a company established in Brunei Darussalam on April 26, 2011; and Mega Achieve Inc., a company established in Anguilla on July 15, 2014.









Discovery Favors Marcos’ Protest

It is expected that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo can be blamed for Mrs. Bautista’s disclosure. This is just in line with Marcos’ first part of the protest where he questions Comelec’s Smartmatic choice when they have no proven automated election capability. Some Senators think that this latest development can certainly affect those races with slim margins – like the Marcos-Robredo VP race.
