Palace: Show proof ex-AFP, DND chiefs plundered funds

By Mario J. Mallari, 01/18/2011

Malacañang yesterday took to defending former Armed Forces and other ex-AFP chiefs, along with the past defense secretaries challenging those who tag them as having been involved in the plunder of military funds in the case against retired Maj Gen. Carlos Garcia, by showing evidence on their partici-pation of the plunder.

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said these matters are up to the Office of the Special Prosecutor and the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) to consider whether there is evidence to link the officials concerned.

“The Sandiganbayan can only rule based on the evidence presented in court. So we’ll see whether the Office of the Special Prosecutor would even consider that or if there is any evidence (leading) to that effect,” Lacierda said in a post-briefing interview.

“It remains clear that the guilty party here is General Garcia. If Congressman Golez can provide evidence (to pin Reyes), he should pass it on to the Sandiganbayan so it can be appreciated,” - Edwin Lacierda

Kita mo, alam din ng palasyo. That he writes cheques he can not cash. Kaya hanggang baboyan na lang si Roy, kinadidirian siya sa senado.

Reyes is not Roy's hobby. No. Think again. Think harder. Think still. Mas malalim pa ang kwento. Magkakasama sa EDSA 2 ang dalawa. Sec DND si Angie, National Security Adviser naman si Roy, walang away sa ilalim ni GMA. Parehong taga Bohol ang kanilang mga asawa. Parehong tinutulak ang mga anak sa politika. And yes, he has no evidence to support his calls to expand and include Reyes in the probe. Ginagamol lang talaga niya ang kaso.

Bakit?

Eh kasi gamol si congressman.

Angie Reyes fits the profile, but its hard now to swallow the theory when it comes from an Amboy like Roy.

Imbestiga dito imbestiga doon, wala naman napaparusahan.
