I read the news report on the “Gawad Kalinga exec cited for quick ‘Yolanda’ response” (Inquirer, 12/4/13) Indeed, volunteerism should be encouraged among the citizenry for it to become part of our culture.
This refers to Ramon Tulfo’s column titled “Envoy in land row” (Metro, 10/8/13). We are contesting the facts alleged in the column on the ground that they are misleading. Tulfo or the Inquirer itself should check the facts against the official records of Civil Case No. 18578, which was consolidated with Civil Case No. 88-1169, involving Meleneo Mendoza and Roberto Santos, of which neither PJ Lhuillier Corporate Centre Inc. nor Ambassador Philippe Lhuillier is a party.
Ramon Tulfo specifically accused me and my party-list Gabriela of “riding on the hot issue of exploitation of female workers in embassy refugee centers.” (Metro, 6/22/13)
In his column titled “Jojo Binay’s juvenile tantrum” (Metro, Inquirer, 5/9/13), Ramon Tulfo wrote that Comelec Commissioner Elias Yusoph is “so strict you’d think he is the king who holds life-and-death power over his subjects.” He further stated that the commissioner “wants citizens applying for exemptions to the gun ban to kowtow to him even if these citizens are not running for public office or not connected to any candidate or political party.”
As a military wife and a widow, it pained me to read Ramon Tulfo’s column titled “Gazmin’s peace initiative toward NPA” (Metro, 5/2/13). In that column, he said that the Armed Forces of the Philippines is an “organization of cowards.” That was not only an unfair and unjust statement; it was disheartening too.
I write this in connection with: first, a column by Ramon Tulfo (“A grave injustice, INQUIRER.net, 3/15/13), which was also published in the Inquirer’s March 16 print edition; and second, another Tulfo column which appeared in the April 2 edition of the Inquirer’s sister publication Bandera.
Many times, I have found Ramon Tulfo’s articles in this otherwise credible newspaper to contain baseless, unbelievable, one-sided and generally worthless opinions, but his series on the private lives of Sen. Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista takes the cake (Inquirer, 3/28/13).
I wish to reply to Ramon Tulfo’s Jan. 5 column which alleged that I dismissed all illegal logging cases filed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Quirino province. The column also suggested that I should be investigated for this, thus implicitly attributing some wrongdoing on my part. I wish to make it [...]
This refers to Ramon Tulfo’s Dec. 18 column titled “Illegal logging exposé touches a raw nerve” (Inquirer, 12/18/12). In that column he claims that his exposé on the people behind illegal logging was such a “bombshell” that it made him unpopular among his friends and relatives. To boost his claim, he cited comments made by his relatives, including the text message sent to him by his sister describing Davao Oriental Gov. Corazon Malanyaon, one of the public officials he accused of involvement in illegal logging, as having been “devastated” by the exposé. This is not true. I would like to correct this impression.
This is in response to the column titled “Adding insult to injury” of Ramon Tulfo (Inquirer, 11/8/12). The article refers to the complaint filed in the Bureau of Immigration by former Trade Undersecretary Maria Teresa Cruz-Evangelista against a certain Muhammad Ali Nasser al Shehri, purportedly an employee of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Manila.
THIS LETTER refers to Ramon Tulfo’s Oct. 4 column where he admitted to having dinner with retired Navy admirals, where they expressed their agreement with the sentiments of the majority in the Armed Forces of the Philippines that my son Phillip Pestaño committed suicide and that those linked to his death were all innocent.
This has reference to Ramon Tulfo’s column titled “Near shoot-out at PDEA” (Inquirer, 10/6/12).
