Arrest warrant AGAINST Lacson OUT

Ping now a fugitive — DoJ


02/06/2010

A Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) yesterday ordered the arrest of a senator who fled abroad claiming political persecution after being accused of murdering a publicist and his driver.

The arrest warrant officially makes Sen. Panfilo Lacson a fugitive, a month after he left the country, Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera told reporters.

Lacson, former Philippine National Police chief, flew to Hong Kong on Jan. 5 and declared earlier this week that he would not be returning soon as he expected to be arrested for the murder 10 years ago of Salvador “Bubby” Dacer.... MORE

BPO started by Erap administration, not GMA


02/06/2010

Reacting to the crowing of President Arroyo on her claimed legacy of the reported P7-billion business process outsourcing (BPO) industry which she said she had “built from scratch” and which is the major key for the Philippines to finally join the ranks of developed countries, former President Joseph Estrada’s spokesman, Margaux Salcedo yesterday, pointed out that the Arroyo administration did not build the BPO industry from scratch. The Estrada administration, she stressed, started this industry sector.

“The Arroyo administration did not build the BPO industry from scratch. The BPO industry was started by the Erap administration,” Salcedo said yesterday in reaction the Arroyo claim.

“The BPO Industry had its beginnings when former President Joseph Estrada directed the Department of Trade and Industry in 1999 to expand the existing Economic Zones to include IT or Information Technology related businesses,” Salcedo clarified..... MORE

From the day Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino was pushed by a faction of the Liberal Party, along with the Aquino-Cojuangco family members, to become their standard bearer, they all banked on the Cory euphoria brought about by the death of Cory Aquino who was being portrayed by the yellow media as a saint, to get Noynoy the presidency and the Cory crowd, regained power and influence.

It was this euphoria that they believed would carry Noynoy through, on which his campaign was grounded.

Thus it was that Aquino and his LPs copied, to the letter, the Cory campaign of 1985.... MORE

Big mistake

It was a mistake on the part of Ping Lacson not only to flee the country, but also say, in a statement to the media, that he had fled the country to evade arrest, claiming a conspiracy against him.

With the arrest warrant now issued against him, he is now deemed a “fugitive” from justice.
His publicist said Lacson is somewhere, trying to get his loyal boy, Michael Ray Aquino, to come up with a deposition that would clear Lacson of the murders of publicist Salvador “Bubby” Dacer and his driver, Emmanuel Corbito, and tell the real tale while pointing to the real brains of the murder, which would mean framing another for the crime he is charged with....
