• High time mrt private owners be charged

    2

    If Senators Chiz Escudero and Grace Poe can have it their way, the private owners of the Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT 3) should be held accountable for the train system’s woes.

    Poe, during a radio interview with Radyo 5 on Tuesday, noted that the MRT Holdings, the private partners of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), “have been milking the government” for years and yet they have not done anything to address the train system’s problems.

    “What did they do with the money they got from the government?” she asked.

    Escudero believes that MRT Holdings should be charged in court for its failure to act to make sure the trains were in tip-top shape by purchasing new coaches and upgrade the system, among other moves, years earlier.

    “Why did they have to wait to this day before finally realizing it’s time to upgrade the mass transport system when the problem is already there?” he asked.

    Well, Your Honors… do what you have to do!

    Batangas councilor in hot water for carting away millions?
    A councilor from Talisay, Batangas, may soon find himself facing several estafa charges from local businessmen and even from his former friends for reportedly running off with their money from joint ventures and business partnerships with him.

    Councilor Lawrence Pesigan is the subject of complaints from a number of businessmen in Batangas for allegedly failing to remit to them their share from the income of the businesses in partnership with him.

    They swore that at first, Pesigan would diligently give their share of the income or profit. But as months went on, he would not remit the cash collected from clients, and eventually vanish in thin air.

    And as if his troubles are not enough, Pesigan allegedly took off recently with almost half a million pesos of a business partner’s share of their business in Manila.

    The businessman, who asked not to be identified anymore, told this writer that he trusted Pesigan too much by allowing him to collect their receivables on several occasions.

    And finally, just last week the local official did not show up anymore in their business office and did not answer his phone.

    Efforts to reach Councilor Pesigan for comment proved futile as he refused to pick up our calls.

    I guess this should serve as a warning to all those with whom he is having business dealings, that they have to take extra precaution especially when it is all about money.

    I am sure Councilor Pesigan has no more plans to run for reelection in the local race in 2016.

    What a waste, Mr. Pesigan!

    1. Kung talagang tinitignan nina pnoy at nila abaya ang kapakanan ng
      maralitang mananakay sa MRT, umpisa palang ng pamumuno nila nuong
      2010, dapat sinunod na nila ang kagustuhan ni sec de jesus nuon sa
      pabgbili ng bagong bagon, ang ginawa ng mga salbahe ay inuna ang
      pag sinidkato sa pondo para sa maintenance na iniwan ng sumitomo dahil
      na rin sa kapabayaan ng pumalit kay de jesus, malalim ang istorya kung
      bakit umayaw na ang sumitomo na dapat alamin nina Chiz at sen grace.
      Kitang kita na sabwatang kusang hindi nila inilabas ang term of reference
      at halos pasikreto nilang inayos ang dagliang pagpasok ng isang
      kumpaniya na kaka-registro lang, maliit ang kapital at walang kakayahan
      o eksperyensa sa teknikal lalo na sa pag mentene ng train. Ni hindi
      sinanguni ng tiga DOTC ang kumpaniyang chech kung may maitutulong,
      bagkus palihim na kinakausap para sa pagbili ng bagong bagon na
      haluan ng pagdududa sa kurapsyon.
      Ngayon sa panahong nagkawindang windang na ang MRT pilit na niloloko
      ang buong bansa na kasalanan ng private investor at ng SUMITOMO ang
      krimen na ginawa nila. Kuntrolado pala ng pribado, bakit si Vitangcol at
      Abaya nag papasiya sino kukuhanin sa maintenance at sila rin ang pumirma
      sa kontrata, hello, at hello pa? bakit si Vitangcol at taga DOTC ang nakiki
      negotiate sa bagong Bagon na bibilin sana at sa binili sa China, again
      Hello, hello o hilo parin.

    2. Mukha hindi pinagaralan ni chiz escudero ang pagmamayari at kung sino
      ang may hawak ng renda sa MRT. Marahil ay masyado siyang busy sa
      kaniyang puso. Bilang abugado hindi pwedeng di niya alam kung sino
      ang talagang rumerenda at namamahala sa MRT. Pwede pa si
      Sen. Grace dahil ngayon pa lang siya pumasok sa eksena.
      Bago mo ipademanda ang mga private incorporator mr
      Chiz tignan mo mabuti ang dokumento ng pag mamay-ari
      ng MRT. Ang gobyerno ang kumukontrol ng 78% ng kita nito
      o mahigit 82.4% ng kinita nito sa loob ng 14 na taon (p40 bilyones)
      Tila iniiba o chinochobibo tayo ni sen Chiz para makaligtas sa
      mga kasalbahihan ang mga tiga gobyerno na siyang
      tunay na humahawak ng renda ng MRT, umpisa kay Sec.
      Abaya, dating gm Vitangcol at marami pang iba. Binibilog
      din nila ang isipan ng taong bayan na ang Sumitomo daw ang
      kusang umayaw sa Maintenance Contract at kesyo nagtaas na
      daw ng presyo at ayaw magbigay ng warranty sa Maintenance,
      Kaya sila nag emergency negotiation sa PhTram, na naging
      Global Apt na higit na mas mura daw ang ini-alok. Tila di nila
      naisip na sinindikato lang ang maintenance sa halagang 1.4M$/buwan
      dahil wala namang maintenance na ginagawa at oras oras may
      sira ang train. Na kahit kitang kita na nila ang pagkapalpak ng
      Global apt patuloy nilang binabayaran. Kung tayo ba ka erwin
      patuloy bang magbabayad sa nag memaintain ng ating sasakyan
      na tuwing gagamitin na, palabas pa lang ng motorshop ay may
      sira na agad. Halatang halata na pilit iwinawaksi ni Chiz e,
      sa napakalaking pagkakasala o krimen sa bayan ang mga
      pabayang sina Abaya at mga tao niya. Kasama na ang mga
      sindikatong Global apt.
