SC affirms acquittal of Imelda Marcos for dollar salting



MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court upheld the decision of the Manila regional trial court (RTC) in 2008 acquittal of former First Lady and now Rep. Imelda R. Marcos of dollar salting. The decision was made public, incidentally on the 46th anniversary of the Marcos' regime's martial law, September 21.

The highest court affirmed that Imelda is acquitted in 33 criminal cases of stowing away millions of dollars she shared with her husband former Ferdinand Marcos in Geneva, Switzerland from 1973 to 1985.

Justice Marvic Mario Victor F. Leonen’s decision states, “The Regional Trial Court Decision dated May 28, 2007 and promulgated on March 10, 2008 was not issued in violation of the Court of Appeals (CA) writ of injunction. When this Regional Trial Court Decision was promulgated, the writ of injunction had already been dissolved.”

The Court of Appeals (CA) rulings, dated February 28, 2008 and November 24, 2008, denied the late and former Solicitor General Francisco Chavez’s petitions to reverse the acquittal of the former first lady. The decision also junked the government prosecution panel’s bid for the inhibition of Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) Presiding Judge Silvino Pampilo, Jr due to “alleged bias.”

The Supreme Court upheld the rulings of CA saying that the prosecution failed to provide more evidence and proof “of the alleged offense and of the conspiracy among the accused.” It also denied that CA made any grave of abuse of discretion or error in their ruling.

The SC statement continued, “This petition arose from what appears to have been such an important case for the government, which involves accountability for millions of pesos spirited away by respondent, filed in the lower court. Yet, it appears that the government's resolve to prosecute has been lackadaisical, to say the least. The prosecution and their witness appear to have requested several postponements on grounds which, to this court (SC), do not outweigh the grave public interest suggested by the various informations filed against respondent.”

“The lower court's liberality in granting the various continuances does not seem to have been met by the presentation of evidence with a depth and quality that would have shown the diligence and seriousness of the prosecution,” statement further explained.

On the issue of Judge Silvino Pampilo, Jr’s inhibition, the Supreme Court says that the decision was for Pampilo to make. The Supreme Court decision states, “Whether or not to voluntarily inhibit from hearing a case is a matter within the judge’s discretion. Absent clear and convincing evidence to overcome the presumption that the judge will dispense justice in accordance with law and evidence, this Court will not interfere.”

The SC added that the prosecution also failed to present enough proof of Pampilo’s alleged bias and pointed at the prosecution’s “own acts that delayed its presentation of evidence and that the prosecution had been granted a six (6)-month extension to complete its presentation o f evidence.”

The country’s highest court pointed to the prosecution's “various failures” that led to the acquittal on the ground of “reasonable doubt.”

OFW surprises parents with sweet homecoming after 5 years working abroad



MANILA, Philippines – There’s nothing sweeter for an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) than coming back home to the Philippines to spend time with family and friends, enjoying the fruits of their labor before heading back to the country where they are working in.
OFW surprises parents with sweet homecoming after 5 years working abroad

For many OFWs, homecomings are truly sweet because they spend many years away from their families. While it is easier these days to communicate with people back home, thanks to the internet and modern gadgets, there is nothing that compares to being with family in person.

So, when OFWs come home, they want to make the moment extra special for their family. Many take their families to fun tours and vacations or treat them to things they had always wished for.

For John Tingcang Casping, his homecoming did not come with a grand fanfare but he wanted to make it special for his parents who live in Pagadian City, southern Philippines. So, with the help of family and friends, he planned what he would do when he gets back home.

Someone was tasked to bring his parents to a Jollibee outlet but arranged beforehand for John to be allowed to serve his parents as part of the service crew. Thankfully, the management loved the idea and let him do it for his parents.

When the food was ready, John brought it to the table while wearing a mask over half of his face.

To complete his disguise and not easily give himself away, John was lent a Jollibee cap for service crew. Though he was not wearing uniform just like the crew, his parents had no idea that he was not part of the staff.

But his mother later revealed that she did think of him when she saw the crew bringing their food. Little did she know that it was really her son in that service crew disguise!

As soon as he took off the mask, his parents immediately recognized him. The two were ecstatic and cried tears of joy as they were once again reunited with their son.

DOH chief admits “not enough budget” for regularization of all health workers



MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III admitted that the agency doesn’t have enough budget to regularize all its field workers.

Speaking about the cut made to DOH’s 2019 budget, Secretary Duque said that the agency does not have enough budget to pay for the salaries and benefits of their health workers if they all be regularized. The health chief shared that although regularizing their workers is "very good," in reality, it entails added costs. He said, “The reality is there’s not enough resources to put everyone on a regular basis."

As much as P8-billion was slashed from the budget of DOH’s human resource for health deployment program and Duque feared that more than 14,000 medical workers, consisting of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical personnel deployed in rural areas might lose their jobs.

Duque explained that the Department of Budget and Management’s P8-billion cut was not really a cut but a “transfer” of the budget allocation from agency's maintenance and other operating expenses to the miscellaneous personnel benefit fund to make way for the regularization.

Duque explained that he supports the regularization “100 percent” but the implication is they have to pay for added benefits such as social security benefits. He said, “It means babayaran mo na ang Pag-ibig, Philhealth, and GSIS.” Currently under the Job Order (JO) process, the government doesn’t pay for those.

The health secretary continued that DOH will soon be implementing the fourth tranche of the Salary Standardization Law and if they continue to “raise the rates” of their health workers without an increase in their budget, they might need to let go of some. He added, “Maganda nga yung gagawin mo, itataas mo, iko-contractualize mo sila and you have added social security benefits and the salary tranche 4 rates, pero kung hindi mo itataas yung rates mo, magkaka-cut ka."

Duque clarified that DBM’s plan to fund for regularization is simply not enough."Ang position ng DBM ganito: only 77.4 percent ang field plantilla positions and they were referring to personnel in the hospitals of the DOH...We’re talking of an entirely separate human resource program—manpower meant to be deployed to the local communities," he said.

Duque continued that he still needs to explain further to DBM their data.

DBM firm on DOH budget cut

Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno stood by their decision to cut P36 billion in DOH 2019 budget.

DOH’s previous budget of P107 billion is down to P71 billion by 2019. The cut will affect the DOH’s field workers under the health human-resources deployment. Diokno alleviated fears of job losses by saying that such assumptions were “false.”

The budget secretary explained that a huge sum was placed in Miscellaneous Personnel Benefits Fund (MPBF) to regularize health workers. Diokno said, “We wish to give our health professionals job security and full benefits for their service by funding permanent and contractual positions, not just job order arrangements.”

“We are doing this to be able to deliver a higher standard of health service to the Filipino people,” Diokno added.

Netizens react on Emmy's joke on Filipino nurses



MANILA, Philippines – Netizens reacted online when Filipino nurses became part of the opening monologue of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Filipino nurses became part of a strong diversity message in Hollywood. Emmy Awards hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost complained about lack of representation of Filipinos in American television. They called out a hit television series, the ER for being unrealistic to not have a single Filipino nurse in the cast.

Halfway through their opening monologue, Che remarked, “As we all know, TV has always had a diversity problem. I mean, can you believe that they did 15 seasons of ER without one Filipino nurse?”

While the audience laughed, he added, “Have you been to a hospital?”

The joke exploded on social media as Filipino nurses and Overseas Filipino Workers reacted to the quick commentary.

On Twitter, a netizen pointed out how Filipino nurses are actually very much appreciated in the US. Known for our hospitality, Filipino nurses are viewed as kind and competent.


Another one also called out another show, Grey’s Anatomy for its lack of Filipino representation when it's set in Seattle where “Filipinos are everywhere.”


There were those who had just realized how real the joke was, especially when it comes to occupational stereotypes.



This observation should come as no surprise as the Philippines has the highest number of citizens applying for the US nursing licensure in 2017. According to the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing, a total of 7,791 nurses applied for the first time – 23% higher than the 2016 figure of 6,322.

You can watch the video of the opening monologue here:

DepEd works with DOH to address teacher suicides



MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Education confirmed that they are working closely with the Department of Health to help address the issue of suicides among teachers.

DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones shared that she investigated 3 cases of teacher suicides and believed that all were “very different from each other.”

Briones said, “We do not consider ourselves as experts in what motivates a person to do this act. To look into these, we are coordinating with the Department of Health.”

The education secretary added that to conclude that heavy workloads lead to suicide is “dangerous” and “very deep.”

“We can’t comment on whether a lesson plan causes suicide. It has to be studied first before drawing such conclusion. Everyone in government is overworked and under pressure,” Briones added.

Last August, the Teachers Dignity Coalition and Alliance Concerned Teachers pointed at DepEd and blamed “heavy workloads” for the teacher suicides. They called on DepEd to halt its new performance rating system, and the required use of daily lesson logs and detailed lesson plan.

TDC chair Benjo Basas said, “Two cases of suicide in just two months purportedly due to work-related issues should alarm the DepEd and take necessary steps. We have been raising the issue of overburden due to clerical tasks required of teachers.”

Secretary Briones said that DepEd is finding ways to help teachers cope with mental stress, working closely with DOH. They have also reduced the workload of teachers but pointed out that the law hinders non-teaching personnel to help.

Atio Castillo’s family seeks help from Vatican to investigate UST



MANILA, Philippines – Horacio "Atio" Castillo III’s family has sought the help of the Vatican to find justice for their son.

The family of Atio Castillo sent a letter to the Vatican to investigate alleged UST’s “inaction.”
The family of Atio Castillo sent a letter to the Vatican to investigate alleged UST’s “inaction.”

Carminia, Atio’s mother confirmed that the Vatican already received their letter asking the Holy See to investigate the University of Santo Tomas (UST) “inaction” towards the death of her son.

It’s been a year since Atio died in the hands of his fellow law students during an initiation rite of the Aegis Juris fraternity. He suffered "severe blunt traumatic injuries” that ultimately led to his death.

The UST is the only university in the entire country to be granted with a pontifical title by the Pope. It also means that they are under the authority of the Vatican.

Mrs. Castillo hopes that the Pope will listen to their plea. She said, “I would guess that the Vatican saw the flow of our theory with regards to the complaint. I believe they will look at it. I believe that they will respond positively on our part."

Dissatisfied with how the UST is taking the incident, Carmina Castillo explained their action, "This undertaking is being done not to divide but strengthen the present school system as well as to look after our children who work very hard as students, that they may be protected and be reminded the school is there to guide them to become morally independent individuals seeking the goodness in all situations.”

Zubiri suggests Vatican probe

It was February this year when Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri suggested to the Castillo family to seek the help of the Pope after the UST has been “silent” about the issue.

Zubiri explained, “Being a Pontifical school, under the realm of the Vatican, they are also subject to investigative procedures of the Vatican.”

“It’s very disappointing, the silence is deafening, ” Mrs. Castillo described the inaction of the University officials.

UST ready to explain their side

UST Law Dean Nilo Divina, who was a member of Aegis Juris defended the university and said that it has practiced “due diligence” over the incident.

Divina said, “We have always maintained that UST is not at fault. It has exercised the diligence required of it under the circumstances. We have banned hazing in all manner or form long before this incident."

Divina continued that UST even suspended all accreditations of fraternities and sororities indefinitely, attended Senate hearings and cooperated with the authorities.

When asked for their reaction on the Vatican probe, Divina said, "We'll basically explain our decision — that we have done all that we could under the circumstances."

Meanwhile, 10 Aegis Juris Fraternity members are still locked up at the Manila City Jail for their on going trial for violation of the Anti-Hazing Law.

Ralph Trangia, one of the accused, filed for bail before the Manila Regional Trial Court's Branch 20 which prompted Judge Marivic Balisi-Umali to call for prosecution witness Marc Ventura for a cross examination on Tuesday.
