BIR as top human rights violator

By

It took the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s disgraceful ad featuring a doctor sitting on a teacher’s shoulders for citizens to protest. However, this was only the latest installment in an increasingly alarming shame campaign that must be reexamined under the lens of human rights.

Favorable to Shell but hard on Phoenix

Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima is reported in the news article “Finance slams TRO on oil smuggling case” (Business, Inquirer, 5/22/13) to have said that the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Court of Appeals in favor of Phoenix Petroleum effectively prevented government from prosecuting smuggling. He was quoted as saying that “our courts and court processes should not be used by a few to block our progress in enforcing customs laws and creating a level playing field for all.”

Court may be wrong on Jonas Burgos case

The human rights group Karapatan and its affiliates have hailed the Court of Appeals decision on the Jonas Burgos case stating that the military was behind the abduction of Burgos. According to the Court of Appeals, its decision is based on evidence and testimonies. Karapatan says that it expects full disclosure on other cases of [...]

When deferred hope stirs (2)

By

“You can seal truth in a grave. But it will always break free.” Easter hammered that truth over the last 2,000 years. Before Easter 2013, did the entombed truth about journalist Jonas Burgos’ abduction start to emerge in a Court of Appeals decision?

Seeing the light

For some reason, the Court of Appeals ruling dated March 18 was not made public until March 27—in the middle of Holy Week. That made a Lenten interpretation of the decision finding an Army major responsible and the Philippine Army itself accountable for the abduction of activist Jonas Burgos all but inevitable.

Scary, revisited

For the second time, a division of the Court of Appeals has invalidated Justice Secretary Leila de Lima’s creation of a second prosecutorial panel to investigate the 2011 killing of Palawan environmental activist and radio anchor Gerry Ortega. The five-member Special 10th Division found that De Lima committed “patent grave abuse of discretion” when she [...]

Court of Appeals made me proud to be a Filipino

By

Last Oct. 22, I went to the Court of Appeals to request two sets of documents— certified copies of a Decision and Entry of Judgment that were vital to the resolution of our civil case at a lower court. Given the past experiences I have had with other government offices in the past, I was prepared for another “rough” experience ahead. But for some reason, I kept reminding myself that if I had made it in a foreign land for 25 years despite being treated as a third-class citizen at every turn, there was every reason I’d anywhere, what more in my native land.

Scary

DEEPLY DISTURBING. That may be the best way to describe the decision of the Special Fifth Division of the Court of Appeals invalidating the creation and thus the conclusions of a second panel of prosecutors that had investigated last year’s murder of Palawan environmentalist Gerry Ortega.

Is CA on the side of criminals?

By

What’s happening to the Court of Appeals? Is it on the side of truth and justice, or the criminals? I ask the questions because two recent cases, both involving multiple murders, decided by it seem to have allowed the accused to run away laughing, free as birds, and left the families of their victims crying. [...]

What CA resolution says: BSP erred in shutting down Banco Filipino

This refers to the news article titled “Latest ruling keeps Banco Filipino shut.” (Inquirer, 2/27/12) Marlon Ramos, who is the author of this report, has no business misleading the public with erroneous reporting. His lead sentence was, “Which is which?” implying inconstancy on the part of the Court of Appeals. Of course, this is not the fact.
