Tiglao has no moral stature to question OFW leader Valencia

WE WOULD like to respond to the latest round of lies that Rigoberto Tiglao peddled in his column, “Akbayan’s OFW parasite and con man” (Inquirer, 11/22/12). First and foremost, we are not at all surprised with how low Tiglao sank in slandering Jose Valencia, president of Kasapi Hellas, an OFW organization in Greece. The slanderous remarks about Valencia and Akbayan were prompted by the concerted, successful effort of migrants, led by Valencia, to remove Tiglao from office due to his shoddy performance as Philippine ambassador to Greece.

Not mere assurances, but action from BOC

I must sincerely sympathize with Bureau of Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon; he very humbly responded to Rigoberto Tiglao’s Nov. 15 column highlighting the bureau’s poor performance, essentially owing to rampant smuggling, under the present administration (Inquirer, 11/16/12). In the same breath, I must also express my high admiration for Biazon’s untempered truthfulness and courage in objectively reacting to Tiglao’s deeply pugnacious, yet fairly convincing, assertions. Indeed, that was a gallant feat of Biazon never yet exhibited by any of this country’s Cabinet secretaries, past or present.

Akbayan’s OFW parasite and con man

By

When President Aquino needs to hit his enemies, and make it appear as if the “masses” are doing it, he calls on his fake party-list Akbayan. Aping its boss, when Akbayan needs to badmouth its critics, it calls on its letter-to-the-editor-writing trolls, and in my case recently, on a bogus OFW leader in Greece, one Jose Valencia.

Smuggling at its worst under Aquino

By

Smuggling in the Philippines is at its worst under President Aquino’s administration, with the smuggled value averaging $19.6 billion annually, an explosion from the comparable figures of $3.1 billion and $3.8 billion yearly during the terms of Presidents Joseph Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, respectively.
