LP has no hand in cases vs Espino, Garcia

This refers to a letter titled “A leaderless LP?” (Inquirer, 1/4/13).
The Liberal Party is not in any way involved in the filing of criminal cases against Pangasinan Gov. Amado Espino or the suspension of Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia. The cases against Espino were lodged by a Pangasinan town mayor who sought the assistance and protection of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas. In the case of Cebu, the suspension of Governor Garcia was issued by the Office of the President through Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government was directed to implement it.

Cebu Gov. Garcia’s suspension

By

Happy New Year! I hope you still have all your fingers. On New Year’s Eve, I enjoyed watching and listening to all the pyrotechnic devices exploding and swishing up into the air. I listened to the crackle of powerful firecrackers, watched the rockets shoot up into the air and explode in a kaleidoscope of colors to light up the night sky, and I had a very enjoyable time until early morning, but I still have all my fingers. And I didn’t have to spend a single peso on the fireworks.

Non-duel at the Cebu provincial capitol

By

When the big guns of the opposition group United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) visited the embattled Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia, one would have expected them to make noisy political capital not only out of the governor’s suspension but also out of the closure of a television station and of a newspaper office. But nothing of the sort seemed to have happened. They seemed simply to have projected themselves as the good guys performing a Christian act of mercy by visiting someone in prison—even if self-imprisoned. The Palace voice in turn also played a good-guy role, saying with a smile that nothing will be done with Garcia until after the holidays.

Inquirer missed core issues in suspension of Cebu’s Garcia

The Inquirer’s Dec. 27 editorial, “Agony in Cebu,” raised issues that are at best peripheral to the core issues in the standoff at the Cebu provincial capitol.

Agony in Cebu

THE SUSPENSION of Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia, ordered by the Office of the President and enforced by the Department of Interior and Local Government, is a vexing issue. The high-profile visit the so-called Three Kings of the United Nationalist Alliance paid the suspended governor did not help matters; instead of defusing the tension at the [...]

Aquino’s brazen blitzkrieg in Cebu

By

IN THE ’70s, Cebu was heroically defiant of Marcos’ dictatorship. By some quirk of fate, it is again proving to be the nemesis of a more modern type of one-man rule, this time mainly based on the power of media and with a Machiavellian expertise in manipulating laws for its vile aims.   For nearly [...]
