"All-Time High Corruption: P332 Billion For Non-Existent Flood Control Projects

NAGA CITY, Philippines — Clearly a “flood control scam,” lawmakers said yesterday of the allocation by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) under Benjamin Diokno of P332 billion for non-existent flood control projects in a short span of three years.

This was among the initial observations raised by the House rules committee, based on “research” made by House Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr.’s team.

“First of all, it is Secretary Diokno – and not President Duterte or DPWH Secretary Mark Villar – who is really behind the insertions for the budget,” he said in a power point presentation at the Avenue Plaza Hotel in Naga where the public hearing was held.

He said the P332-billion allocation comprised P213 billion for flood-control projects in the national budget for fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and the proposed P119 billion for this year.

“All of these will come from taxpayers’ money,” Andaya said, adding that Diokno did the insertions “without consulting” Villar – a former Las Piñas congressman – and in “utter disregard” of Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Order 23 Series of 2015 regarding flood funding requests. Records show a high percentage of slippage, he said.

The House leader also pointed out that DBM placed the funds for projects in areas “not prone to floods” and not covered by any master plan, like the P385 million allocated for Casiguran town whose Mayor Edwin Hamor is an in-law of Diokno.

Local DPWH officials testified Casiguran is not under threat of any flooding and in fact is not included in the studies made by the World Bank, Japan International Cooperation Agency and in the hazard map for Project Noah.

“Definitely Casiguran – unlike the town of Matnog where 19 of its areas were submerged in flood – is not under threat of flooding for the next 25 years,” Andaya emphasized.

Hamor’s children own the Aremar Construction Corp. which has a joint venture agreement with 70-year-old Consolacion Leoncio of Sta. Maria, Bulacan whose company CT Leoncio Construction Corp. cornered billions in government projects.

Leoncio denied personally knowing Diokno or even the Hamors – including Sorsogon Vice Gov. Esther Hamor – with whom she only converses over the phone.

“Our partnership is 51-49 – 51 is mine and they get 49. They take care of the projects and I take care of the financial side,” she said in Filipino.

She said her liaison officer Francis Clemente of Bulacan could explain everything.

Dummy?
Andaya said Leoncio appeared to be just a “financier and dummy” of the Aremars, or Diokno’s in-laws.

“It’s very clear that it’s conflict of interest on the part of Secretary Diokno. That’s first degree in the relationship. We’re getting close here,” he said after the hearing.

He said Aremar was just using the license of CT Leoncio, citing as “evidence” a Land Bank of the Philippines deposit slip indicating Aremar got paid for a project.

An October 2018 Land Bank deposit slip for P11.4 million indicated the amount was a “collection for DPWH project.”

Andaya refused to name the source of the check. “It’s from a contractor who won the bidding for a project in Bicol. After release of funds from DBM, the winning contractor deposited the money to the real contractor – Aremar,” he said.

“I’m inclined to seek the help of the Anti-Money Laundering Council in the House investigation. I will request for all bank transactions of CT Leoncio and Aremar,” he declared.

Andaya also took note of Leoncio’s criminal liability. “Yes, she will be liable.” He also advised Leoncio to consider seriously talking with her liaison officer because he might implicate her the moment he complies with their subpoena.

Clemente was also issued a subpoena."


Yeah, the bumbling corruption of lolo Dugong's gov't !

Duterte signs work from home, higher pension for war veterans bills into law
Alexis Romero (philstar.com) - January 10, 2019 - 7:12pm


MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law measures allowing employees to work from home and increasing the monthly old-age pension of war veterans.

The president signed Republic Act 11165 or the Telecommuting Act and Republic Act 11164, which increased the pension of war veterans, last December 20.

The Telecommuting Act allows an employee in the private sector to work from home or an alternative workplace with the use of telecommunication or computer technologies. The law aims to address traffic congestion and to promote work-life balance.

An employer may offer a telecommuting program to its employees on a voluntary basis. The adoption of such scheme remains a prerogative of employers but the program should not be less than the minimum labor standards set by law on health and safety of workers, schedule and workloads, work hours and social security. An employer is required to ensure that a telecommuting employee will not be isolated from the rest of the working community by giving him opportunities to meet with colleagues and allowing access to company information.

The Labor department is expected to craft guidelines that will ensure the "fair treatment" of telecommuting employees. The employer is required to ensure the protection of data used and processed by the telecommuting employee for professional purposes.

The law also provides for the establishment of a telecommuting pilot program in select industries for a period of not more than three years to enable the labor department to determine the advantages and disadvantages of a telecommuting program in the Philippines.

Republic Act No. 11164, meanwhile, increases the old-age pension of senior veterans to P20,000 from P5,000 per month. Senior veterans are those who fought during World War II, Korean and Vietnam wars.

The pension is not transferable to any family member or dependent of the veteran.

Work from home?
Old story. Come on.
Matter of fact, our company and I know many companies have been doing this already. But our country's providers has failed to latch on to the ideal speed connection as it normally should, to ordinary citizens, so that's the biggest hurdle so far. Heavy online apps that's being used at work were very much affected by this. Pretty clear these are one of the major issues that needs to be addressed expeditiously.

Duterte still most trusted Philippine official; Arroyo least trusted – Pulse Asia
By: Nestor Corrales - Reporter / @NCorralesINQ INQUIRER.net / 10:50 AM January 11, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte got the highest approval and trust ratings among elected officials, the latest Pulse Asia survey released on Friday showed.

The survey, conducted from December 14 to 21, revealed that the President got an 81 percent approval rating in December, up by six percentage points from his September 2018 rating while his trust rating also increased by four percentage points from 72 percent in September 2018 to 76 percent in December of the same year.

Senate President Vicente Sotto III meanwhile obtained a 76 percent approval rating and a 66 percent trust rating while House Speaker Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo, who got the lowest ratings, had 27 percent approval rating and a 21 percent trust rating.

Duterte and Sotto got majority approval and trust ratings across all geographic areas and socio-economic classes.

For Arroyo, the only majority rating she obtained was her 52 percent distrust rating in Metro Manila. All her other ratings were below 50 percent.

Duterte: Infrastructure President



By RIGOBERTO D. TIGLAO


January 11, 2019


RATHER than Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno’s answers (published here yesterday) to the questions I had raised in my January 7 column over allegations of corruption in the budget allocations for infrastructure, what impressed me more in his letter were the figures he presented that compared this administration’s outlays for infrastructure to those of previous governments.

I hadn’t seen such data, and it would have taken a lot of research time on my part to get and organize the data myself.

The data incontrovertibly prove that President Duterte is emerging, quite unexpectedly, as the country’s “Infrastructure President.” Hopefully, he will preside over a golden era of infrastructure development in our country.
