The Gangster and the President
Published: 14/11/2000

Reporter: Evan Williams

The heavy wooden gates swing open to reveal a gang of armed men and slick cars with darkened windows. We're told they're bullet-proof.

Walking down the stairs of this sprawling mansion we enter the world of gangster-politics Philippines style - and the life of a crime boss whose claims are bringing down a President.

A slight man, smartly dressed in a polo shirt and tan slacks, Governor Luis Chavit Singson doesn't look especially threatening as he sits alone on a cane couch reading the paper . yet he's known as one of the most powerful gangsters in the country.

"I've survived six attempts on my life," he laughs, "including the time they threw grenades at me - eleven people were killed, but not me - luckily I was dancing with a fat woman at the time and she took all the shrapnel."

Politically incorrect he may be, but Singson's decision to go public with his claims of paying off the President are shaking up the dark culture of crime and politics in the Philippines.

With a warm greeting, Singson waves us in to join him for breakfast. The maids hurriedly lay out enough food for ten people - but his bodyguards keep their distance, peering warily at us from behind the iron grill around the open-air terrace.

Up close, Singson seems practical and direct, but a man who's mood could turn quickly if something upset him - a man who's clearly used to getting his way.

"Singson is what we call a warlord," says investigative journalist Shiela Coronel, "that means he is a local boss. He has goons, he has guns and he controls the economic and political power in his province. He is a man used to fist-fights. He has been accused of trying to kill his political enemies and his political enemies have tried to kill him .. not once but several times ... he is the Al Pacino in the Filipino context."

But unlike Al Pacino, Singson has broken the gangster's golden rule and grassed on his biggest patron - the President.

Singson says, over two years, he personally delivered millions in illegal gambling money to the President inside the palace.

"When I entered, there would be no inspection. Everyone would look at me - it was so shameful but I would walk past all of them straight to his office and then he follows me .. I show him, he counts it by the bundle - five bundles, five million pesos every fifteen days or a total of ten million (US$200,000) every month."

If Singson was late, he confides, the President would call him and tell him to hurry up.

The President denies the charges and questions how can the nation believe a self-confessed gangster, a criminal and underworld boss. But that's exactly why many Filipinos DO believe the charges - because for the first time a real insider is blowing the whistle.

Sharing time with him, Singson is clearly a man who doesn't really enjoy breaking ranks with his old friend: there's something about it that upsets him, a broken code he appears uncomfortable with.

But when I push him on why he should be believed when the leader of the country denies the charges - Singson's answer rings truer than any politically-motivated hatchet job.

Estrada wanted to replace the illegal numbers game Singson controlled with a new legal game. The trouble was he gave the contract to one of Singson's underworld rivals.

"It's like adding insult to injury."

Singson says he warned Estrada to scrap the new contract - when he refused, Singson announced he would go public. The President's men then tried convincing him not to and when he refused, the tale of betrayal took a violent turn.

"When I decided to go public, that's the time they try to kill me," says Singson, his face hardening into that of a friend shocked by the betrayal of another, "and the President called me, all the ministers call me, including the President, not to go public." I said "I've decided already. If I don't do it, nobody will do it. Now I have the evidence it's no longer personal. They tried to kill me already and if I will not go out I will lose face - and second they will kill me - they might as well kill me with a face."

But there's more. Singson also claims he helped Estrada hold back 130-million Pesos (about US$2 million) in tobacco taxes that were meant to be released to his province. The money - he says - was needed to help cover the President's election costs.

But why should anyone believe him.

"I have no hidden agenda, I have everything to lose. Why should I go public and why should I not accept the offers to me? My only weapon is the truth . I challenged them to sit down to a lie-detector - they don't want to, they're all already lying."

Lying, betrayal, violence and greed - all qualities Singson - and if he's to be believed, Estrada - have in spades. Qualities that ironically appear to be the reason a President has been impeached and the dark underbelly of crime and politics has been exposed to such overwhelming public scrutiny and disgust.

Singson talks for hours, about the President's all-night drinking and million dollar mahjong sessions, the need for the money to take care of his six mistresses and one official wife, the deals for cronies and the way it all works.

Will it change now he's gone public? The politicians smelling their victory in Estrada's defeat are making all the right noises, but in a nation where so many owe so much to so few, there are no guarantees.
