    MANILA, Philippines — Nagpahayag na rin ng pagkadismaya kay Senador Antonio Trillanes IV si dating pangulong Joseph Ejercito Estrada kasunod ng mga binitiwan nitong akusasyon laban kay Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile Miyekules ng hapon.

    Sa isang phone patch interview na pinaunlakan ng dating pangulo para sa mga miyembro ng senate media , binatikos ni Estrada ang mga naging aksyon ni Trillanes.

    “This guy wants to get the attention of the Filipino people. He has not done anything in the Senate. So just to ingratiate himself to the President, he volunteered. The President did not even ask him to go to China but he volunteered himself.”

    Kinuwestyon din ng dating pangulo ang integridad ng pinakabatang senador matapos itong magpalipat-lipat ng partido.

    Magugunitang, una nang tumakbo si Trillanes sa ilalim ng Genuine Opposition ngunit matapos manalo ay lumipat sa Nacionalista Party at ngayon ay kasapi nasa Liberal Party.

    “He jumped from one party to another. Kasi ang Liberal nasa pwesto ngayon kaya sumama siya diyan.”

    Sinabi pa ni Estrada na lumaki ang ulo ni Trillanes mula ng ito’y maging senador kaya naman malaki rin ang kanyang pagsisisi sa pag-eendorso dito noong 2007 elections.

    “Who is he? Who is that, who is he? Wala naman yan eh! He’s not even respected by his fellow soldiers akalain mo. I have talked to many military officials and they don’t like him.” (Bernard Dadis/Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

    MANILA, Philippines — Liberal Party senators revealed that several email accounts of their staff have been hacked.

    They were, in particular, the staff of LP president Kiko Pangilinan and Senator Bam Aquino.

    According to Senator Aquino, four hacking incidents happened when their email address was used to send falsified information on destabilization plot against President Rodrigo Duterte.

    “We were able to uncover that some of our Senate staff had been hacked, that some emails purportedly from their accounts have been used to send falsified emails to other individuals,” said Aquino.

    Some of the emails are regarding the alleged investigation on DDS and LP media plan to destroy President Duterte.

    It also suggested that Vice President Leni Robredo and former President Benigno Aquino III were involved in the said planning.

    Senator Aquino said this means there are groups who want to pin the opposition bloc on the alleged destabilization plot.

    “I hope the administration is not behind this, but clearly meron pong grupo na gusto pong magkagulo po tayo  sa ating bansa (there are groups who want to create chaos in the country) because they are pertaining to destabilization plots. They are pertaining to things na wala naman pong kinalaman ang (that are not related to the) Liberal Party,” said Aquino.

    The LP senator believes these may be the sources of the reported destabilization where the LP is said to be involved.

    The LP senators sought already the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) on the hacking incidents. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    Drop in PRRD’s rating calls for revision of administration policies – senators

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, October 9th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — According to some Liberal Party (LP) senators, the approval and trust ratings of the president might further plunge if the government continues to pursue its strategy particularly on its brutal war on drugs.

    “I hope it serves as a wake-up call for them to change the war on drugs, and to change their strategy and to stop the killings on the streets,” said LP Senator Bam Aquino.

    “Statistically, it is significant and show a damage to the reputation of the president,” said Sen. Risa Hontiveros.

    Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said that aside on the public’s trust to the president, the war on drugs also affects the country’s economy.

    “One thing we should also look into is the drop in the investments. It’s almost 90%. It is also a reflection of the confidence level of the investors in our country,” said Drilon.

    Meanwhile, Senator Panfilo Lacson believes the drop in the ratings of the president is due to the involvement of cops in the killing of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa.

    But for Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, it’s too early to judge the performance of the president.

    “Look first where the undecided go. It’s not even cause for alarm, it really happens. The survey or the ratings might not be that important for the president. The important thing is for him to do his job,” said Sotto.

    Some lawmakers, meanwhile, shrugged off the drop in the ratings of the president.

    “The surveys are just numbers the president is very much focused on his programs,” said Surigao del Sur Rep. Johnny Pimentel.

    “If you compare his results in the same time period and in the same quarters of the almost..shall we say, second year of office, comparatively he’s doing very well,” said Davao Rep. Karlo Nograles.

    Vice President Leni Robredo, meanwhile, refused to comment on the result of the latest Social Weather Station survey.

    “I should focus first on the budget, sorry,” said the vice president. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    Creation of Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, unconstitutional and redundant – critics

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Friday, October 6th, 2017


    MANILA, Philippines — Magdalo party-list Rep Gary Alejano believes the creation of Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, is unconstitutional and redundant.

    The lawmaker argued that such a commission will only be used for the president’s benefits.

    “This is a clear threat and intimidation to what the Ombudsman is doing. And this is also an assault on the independence of the Ombudsman,” said Alejano.

    Members of the Liberal Party (LP) also criticized the said proposal of the president.

    Senator Franklin Drilon said the president might use the said executive order to impose discipline, or possibly control over the officials of other branches of the government like members of the Congress, Judiciary, Civil Service Commission, Commission on Audit, Commission on Elections, Commission on Human Rights, and the Office of the Ombudsman.

    Drilon explained that the creation of a presidential anti-corruption commission would violate the constitutional independence stated under the Constitution.

    Ifugao Rep. Teddy Bagulat, meanwhile said the plan of the president is a clear intimidation to the Office of the Ombudsman and aims to harass the critics of his administration.

    On the other hand, administration ally Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III said the chief executive has the authority to create a separate organization.

    He said the Executive branch should be able to detail the functions of the said commission.

    “Let’s assume then that there is corruption in the Office of the Ombudsman, below the Office of the Ombudsman, where will the people go to? The Ombudsman? And if you were the president and you always hear such a complaint, will you just let it be? So I agree with the organization of commission but be conscious of the limits of its functions,” said Pimentel.

    “They should know the extent of the power or limits of their power, the executive branch cannot discipline the ombudsman,” he added. — Grace Casin | UNTV News & Rescue
