• Raps vs Aquino will not prosper – Palace


    SECRETARY Herminio “Sonny” Coloma of the Presidential Communications Operations Office said any criminal complaint that will be filed against President Benigno Aquino 3rd will not prosper.

    He made the statement following calls by the Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Pamamalakaya ng Pilipinas on incoming President Rodrigo Duterte to put Aquino behind bars.

    “That take is nonsense. The President has followed the Constitution and has implemented the laws fairly during his term as Chief Executive,” Coloma said in a radio interview.

    Some groups had said that Aquino should be charged for the implementation of the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program and Priority Development Assistant Fund (PDAF) that the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional.

    Three senators have been charged at the Sandiganbayan for the alleged misuse of their PDAF — Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr., Juan Ponce Enrile and Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada.

    “The prosecution of the powerful government officials behind the PDAF scam proves that the law applies to everyone because that is in the oath of office of President Aquino,” Coloma pointed out.

    Aquino will lose his immunity from suit when he steps down on June 30.

    1. You’re scared by your own ghost at this early stage. Karmic justice for ABNoy, he will be jailed for his arrogance and incompetence.

    2. TWO THINGS. Either Coloma is joking or he is telling the truth. If he is joking, nagpiapalakas loob lang sila kasi alam nila na posibleng makulong si Pnoy. If he is telling the truth then Plan B is now operational. Leni will be proclaimed vice president & Digong will not complete his presidency either by death or legal maneuvering.

    3. Coloma is hallucinating. Someone please give him a tranquilizer and put him in a straightjacket.

      ## 46 more days until the end of Hypocrisy, Plunder and Incompetence ##

    4. Three senators have been charged at the Sandiganbayan for the alleged misuse of their PDAF — Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr., Juan Ponce Enrile and Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada.

      No LPs or KKKs have been charged because Pres. Disaster has been protecting them along. Abaya should be charged as well.

      Malapit na yata ang time ninyo kaya medyo kabado na. NAPAKASINUNGALING talaga nitong miscommunication group.

    5. Wow! Mr. Coloma stop being insensitive because of your “blinded loyalty” to Mr. Aquino. You are on e of the people behind him, and made him to behaved and acted like what he is now. His batteries of advisers are the one failing him. Pain in case is your irresponsible statement (yours and this writer included). Explain the peace process with MILF (why not include every stakeholders). Explain why we loss “Scarborough Shoal” and still losing more. How about “Malampaya Fund” (nothing has been discuss or talk about it). How about the “Mamasapano Massacre” in all government/political system much more like ours, being Commander-in-Chief is liable because of what we call Chain of Command responsibility. Stop all technicalities (which Filipinos are known for-twisting facts) and he has some explaining to Filipinos. The soil or “earth used by China to build “man made island” are coming from Philippines. And this administration didn’t “lift a finger”. Why are we using Malaysia as an observer or intermediary in the peace process, where we or Sultan of Sulu has pending claim of Sabah–then suddenly businesses from Malaysia are coming–like big areas allocated for palm oil plantation instead of supporting the Filipinos coconut farmers. Where is the Coco levy fund?

    6. “Secretary Herminio “Sonny” Coloma of the Presidential Communications Operations Office said any criminal complaint that will be filed against President Benigno Aquino 3rd will not prosper.”

      LOL. If Pnoy was able to jail GMA even when the government were hard put in prosecuting her for lack of evidence, how is it that in regards to Pnoy after the Supreme court declared PDAF and DAP declared it unconstitutional? And that’s only one of the many sins he inflected on the Fiipino people. Recall that the charges against GMA were rushed and hastily prepared just so she can not leave for treatment abroad. And we were reading reports that already, a group of lawyers are preparing suit against Pnoy once his immunity from suit lapses. Coloma must be giving his boss big hope when there is none.

    7. He’s been slapping the people for six years.
      Time to slap back on July 1. People can’t wait….

    8. What kind of reasoning does Coloma impose upon us? Does he think we can buy his very faulty reasoning? The criminal charges against the Abnoy will depend on the determination of the Supreme Court upon a trial that will ensue after the filing of the charges, not upon what he (Coloma) surmises.

      There is a prima facie evidence that the Abnoy committed a violation of the Constitution through what he did with government funds which he labelled as Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and the DAP. He also is being charged criminally by his culpability and criminal negligence over the death of the SAF 44 and various incidents where many people were killed. There is no escaping the jailing of this incompetent yet arrogant pseudo-president. Coloma’s illogical defenses unfortunately cannot absolve the Abnoy from his crimes.

    9. Isnt that ironic, that the name connotes bad meaning, Rob- meaning robbery and redo-means to change whatever the resulting end product would be and or redo/ rigging the the election results.

    10. Of course, you are free to express your opinion, like every filipinos constitutional rights of free expression, but all Filipinos are tired of being treated like dummies, the educated once cannot be fooled and refused to be fooled anymore for the sake of the sufferring of the underpriviledged poor. God never sleeps 24/7 for He protects his good and law-abiding citizens from those scavengers who in the middle of the night will do anything to rig an election in favor of Leni ” Rob”- redo, so your dear Boss can escape the wrath of going to jail.

      Coloma is a SHAMELESS ILOCANO who betrays his fellow ILOCANOS and the Filipinos most importantly. This man is an ACCOMPLICE of Aquino`s crimes and he should go with him to jail!

      Sangga kaagad ang mga kolokoy! Ha ha ha! Sangga ora mismo, na di mapo-prosper. May husga sa sarili na absuwelto na sila. Kita mo nga naman ang guilty ayaw bigyan ng pagkakataon na masampahan ng kaso kasi matatalo sila at alam nila yun. Ayaw ba nilang samahan si GMA sa kulungan? Sama sama kayo kasi pare-pareho lang kayo. Ayyy, mas marunong nga pala si Gloria kay Aquino. Sorry!
