COA questions Davao City’s P569.38-million spending
Published May 22, 2018 4:09pm
By JOSEPH TRISTAN ROXAS, GMA News


The Commission on Audit (COA) has flagged the local government of Davao City for spending P569.39 million in public funds despite the lack of supporting documents on the inventory of supplies, allotment of equipment for public schools, and inconsistencies with the procurement law.

In its 2017 annual audit report, COA said the local government's inventory balance of P486.34 million is of "doubtful validity" since some no longer exist and yet were still carried in the book of records.

COA: Cost of Davao City's hiring of contractual employees balloons to almost P1B
Published May 24, 2018 4:44pm
By JOSEPH TRISTAN ROXAS, GMA News


Davao City's expenses for the salaries of thousands of its contractual workers have ballooned to almost a billion pesos in 2017 despite questions over the workers' specific duties three years ago, the Commission on Audit (COA) said in its annual report.

COA said the local government spent P938.7 million for the "other general services" of its job orders and contract of service (COS) personnel, or about 81 percent of the P1.16 billion allotted for contracted services.

The expenses were listed under the city's Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE).

According to COA, the amount is 16.8 percent higher compared to the P803.7 million allotted in the previous year, more than P183 million more compared to 2015, and an increase of more than P200 million from 2014 when COA flagged Davao City over the questionable hiring.

In its 2014 audit, COA said it cannot establish the necessity of keeping more than 11,000 contractual workers who had no specific duties while under the city's payroll.

Rodrigo Duterte is The 21st Century’s Prime Example of Successful Non-Alignment in Pursuit of The Win-Win Model
Written by Adam Garrie on 2018-05-26





The Philippines only joined the Non-Aligned Movement in 1993, thirty-two years after its inception and at the nadir of its geo-political relevance.

Today however, both the concept of non-alignment and the Non-Aligned Movement itself, offer countries throughout the world the best opportunity to achieve the benefits of the “win-win” mentality that is associated with the 21st century—China’s century.

Into this framework, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has in his first year and a half in power demonstrated a clear model for non-alignment in the 21st century and one which if implemented across South East Asia, could help to further transform the region into the most economically and diplomatically dynamic in the world.

Non-Alignment Then And Now

The Non-Aligned Movement was formally founded in 1961, based on an earlier initiative from 1956 that was inaugurated by Egyptian President Gamal Abdul Nasser, Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito, Indonesian President Sukarno, Indian Premier Jawaharlal Nehru and Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah. The movement did not have a defined ideology in the way that the bloc of formal US, Soviet and Chinese allies had during the Cold War era. Instead the non-aligned bloc came to be seen as a diverse set of nations across multiple continents that sought to develop outside of the geo-political tutelage of any one superpower.

The group’s diverse make-up ranged from Indonesia which in the Suharto era became increasingly pro-American, North Korea which was stridently anti-American while remaining on good terms with both the USSR and China in spite of the Sino-Soviet split, Egypt which in 1961 was a Soviet ally but by the 1980s became a western ally, as well as India which was a de-facto Soviet ally, but one continually courted by the United States. Cuba, in spite of its formal Soviet alignment, was also a leading state of the Non-Aligned movement, as Castro felt that membership of the Movement helped to draw Cuba closer to the developing post-colonial world whose liberation was continually championed by Havana.

The Philippines In the ‘aligned age’

Between 1965 and 1986, The Philippines was ruled by Ferdinand Marcos which meant that Manila was Washington’s closet “ally” in the region. When Marcos was toppled in favour of Corazon “Cory” Aquino, it marked the beginning of a lengthy transition phase for The Philippines whereby both the stability and authoritarianism of the Marcos era gave way to a period of open democracy which was set off with as a series of ineffective leaders who remained largely dependent on Washington.

The election of former Davao City mayor Rodrigo Duterte as President in 2016 marked the beginning of a new era for Philippines that rejected the slavishly pro-American lethargy of the 1990s and early 2000s, while also avoiding the equal and opposite pro-American tendencies of the Marcos era.

One Belt—One Road—Non Alignment

Duterte has not alienated The Philippines from its traditional US ally, but instead has been able to turn Philippines into a model of non-alignment for a new era. As such, Duterte can already be named as one of the most important modern Filipino leaders.

Duterte’s Philippines has engaged in an historic rapprochement with China which President Xi Jinping hailed as a “golden era of relations”. By agreeing to work as partners rather than adversaries over matters concerning territorial and maritime rights in the South China Sea, The Philippines has been rewarded with a most-favoured position in the eyes of the leading superpower of the 21st century, China.

Investment from Beijing into The Philippines has already increased as a result and The Philippines looks to play an important role in China’s One Belt—One Road.

Duterte’s New Model for ASEAN

Duterte has also developed historically strong ties with Russia and looks keen on cementing both a trading and security partnership with a Moscow that is eager to diversify its new partnerships throughout the ASEAN bloc.

Duterte has made it clear the era of a “colonial mentality” via-a-vis the United States is over. While the US Congress and state-funded American bodies disguised as so-called “NGOs” have taken a harsh line against The Philippines because of this, Donald Trump appears to have a warm personal relationship with Duterte that continues to develop. Because of this, The Philippines remains open to respectful trading relations with the United States, while clearly moving in a direction whereby China will become the most important trading partner for The Philippines. Russia on the other hand, will play an enhanced role in modernising the armed forces of The Philippines, thus reducing dependence on the US which has traditionally demanded a say in policy making among all states with which it maintains security agreements.

At the same time, Duterte has eased tensions with Malaysia, prioritising trading ties above long running territorial disputes, particularly in respect of Sabah.

Duterte’s model which stresses cooperation over mutually beneficial trading and security initiatives with both traditional partners and erstwhile rivals is fast becoming the model for all of South East Asia.

While both Indonesia and Thailand are quietly increasing their trade with China, The Philippines under Duterte has taken a lead in articulating and implementing a model which stresses long-term cooperation with China.

Due to China’s status as the soon to be undisputed leading economy of the world and due to South East Asia’s regional proximity to the leading superpower, those nations which show a willingness to embrace the “win-win” Chinese model while abandoning the confrontational zero-sum model that the US has thrust upon much of South East Asia, will ultimately reap the rewards for doing so.

At the same time the Philippines models itself not as a Chinese “ally” but as a genuinely non-aligned state whose regional and global partnerships are designed to extract the greatest maxim of prosperity for Filipinos while minimising old conflicts. In this sense, the best trade that all nations can make is the swapping of territorial conflicts for agreements based on trade and cultural exchange. This model has been beneficial in minimising tensions throughout the world and while the US seeks to use the South China Sea as a means to sow discord among ASEAN members and between ASEAN and China, Duterte has proven that the opposite approach is the one which will result in mutually assured prosperity and increased diplomatic cooperation.

While Vietnam’s relations with the US have gone from a state of bloody war, to one of sceptical but increasingly close cooperation, China is nevertheless Vietnam’s number one trading partner. As a country whose relations with the US are far less historically intertwined than that between Manila and Washington, Duterte’s model could serve as a useful starting point for the necessary rapprochement between Vietnam and China. If The Philippines can take a realistic “win-win” approach to China, Vietnam, in spite of a fractious history could eventually do the same, especially considering Russia’s historically good ties to Vietnam and its current superpower partnership with Beijing.

While Non-Aligned Movement members will never agree on everything, as this was never the goal of the bloc, there are clear generational leaders of the movement who typically attain their stature based on the ability to win new friends, increase meaningful sovereignty and prosperity, all without alienating former allies beyond that which is inevitable.

In this sense, Duterte has not only led a peaceful political and geo-political revolution for The Philippines and more broadly in South East Asia, he has also become the leading light of the Non-Aligned Movement in an era where old global alliances are collapsing, thus renewing the importance of a movement whose inception represented a rejection of dogmatic relations with other states.

Palace: No conflict of interest in Calida security firm’s P150-M deals with gov’t
By: Jhoanna Ballaran - Reporter / @JhoannaBINQ
INQUIRER.net / 01:09 PM May 28, 2018

There is no conflict of interest in Solicitor General Jose Calida’s family-owned security firms bagging multi-million-peso deals with various government agencies, Malacañang said on Monday.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque perused that Calida’s enemies were only getting back at him following his victory in the quo warranto petition against ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno before the Supreme Court.

“Kayo naman alam niyo naman kung bakit lumalabas yang mga pula diyan kay SolGen Calida nanalo kasi siya sa quo warranto niya,” Roque said in a Palace press briefing.

(You all know why criticisms are hurled against SolGen Calida, because he won in his quo warranto case.)

“Binabawian siya ng mga kalaban niya, yung mga nasaktan doon sa ruling ng quo warranto, obvious naman yan,” Roque added.

(His foes are getting back at him, those who got hurt with the quo warranto ruling.)

Early on Monday, Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan urged Calida to resign following reports Vigilant Investigative and Security Agency, apparently owned by the Solicitor General’s family, bagged P150 million in contracts from various government agencies, including the Department of Justice, Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, and National Economic and Development Authority.

Roque said a mere stock ownership in a company is not covered by provisions under the Constitution and other laws.

“I think mere stock ownership is not prohibited for as long as you declare it in your SALN,” Roque said.


“And right now the situation for SolGen Calida he acknowledged that he has stock ownership but he’s not exercising any management powers in the company,” he added.

Bangladesh declares zero tolerance against drug dealers
Image

Law enforcers have so far arrested 3,000 drug dealers, while 23 drug peddlers were killed during “gunfights” while they were being captured.

Human rights activists and the country’s largest opposition party the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) have criticized the “gunfight” incidents as a “violation of human rights.”



DHAKA: Bangladesh has declared a war on drugs throughout the country. In the past 12 days around 84 alleged drug dealers were killed during gunfights with the law-enforcing agencies.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina launched the anti-narcotic drive in early May.

Human rights activists and the country’s largest opposition party the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) have criticized the “gunfight” incidents as a “violation of human rights.”

On early Sunday, 11 drug dealers were killed in separate gunfight incidents throughout the country. Among the dead was a ruling party leader who was a city councilor in Cox’s Bazar City.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), a paramilitary law-enforcing agency, started its anti-narcotic movement on May 4. And it has so far arrested 3,000 drug dealers, while 23 drug peddlers were killed during “gunfights” while they were being captured.

Commander Mufti Mahmud Khan, spokesperson of the RAB, told Arab News: “There is no question of violation of human rights in our ongoing war against drugs.”

He said that when the RAB captured any armed person or group generally some shootout incidents took place. And, he claimed, it also happens in the US and other developed countries. “We arrest the drug dealers based on intel information and later on they are produced to the court.”

Bangladesh Police started its all-out operation against drugs on May 15, and police headquarters has directed all its units to start countrywide operations against dealers.

Mohammad Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said: “Our anti-narcotic operations will continue till the situations come down to a tolerant level.” He said the only objective of this operation was to bring down the usage level of narcotics in society.

Justifying the anti-drug movement, Masudur added: “We only arrest the persons with whom we get drugs. And we will continue this movement for an indefinite period.”

Obaidul Quader, general secretary of ruling party Bangladesh Awami League, said: “Any drug trader, irrespective of party, won’t be spared if accusations become true.

“The countrymen have amicably welcomed the law enforcement agencies’ drives against narcotics. Only those with evil political intentions are criticizing the crackdown,” Quader told local media on Saturday.

But Advocate Asadujjaman, human rights secretary of the BNP, claimed that in many areas of the country their supporters and leaders were arrested in the name of the anti-drug movement.

He added: “Any kind of extrajudicial killing is unconstitutional, illegal, inhuman and a violation of human rights of international standard. It shows that the government is not showing any respect to protect the basic rights of the people as stated in the Constitution.”

The country’s human rights group is also criticizing the killings. Nur Khan, renowned human rights activist and adviser of the Human Rights Support Society, demanded an investigation into every extrajudicial killing through a neutral and credible Investigation Commission.

Nur said: “This type of extrajudicial killing will establish the culture of absence of justice in the society. People will get frightened due to this situation.”
