exposes Corpus-Rosebud conspiracy...(More...)
Pati si Barbers?
Lawrence Wang is a Hongkong or Macau resident who
was listed by the Interpol, US-DEA and the Hong Kong Royal Police
way back in 1993. He settled in Manila and established a night spot,formerly
named "La Vogue", along U.N. Ave. which is a block away from WPD's
Police Station 5 then headed by Barbers and years later occupied
by Maganto. These 2 Manila police officers befriended Mr. Wang and
were seen frequenting the place on a weekly basis as the club's
protectors. Several personalities from the media and the police
could attest to this statement.
As soon as Pres. Ramos installed Mr Barbers as DILG
Sec.,the latter formed his own group of Manila policemen to man
his PARAC to undertake anti-criminality operations.
In May 1996, his PARAC operatives then headed by
Maj.Margallo arrested his friend-kumpadre, Mr. Lawrence Wang,
in a parking lot near his establishment along U.N. Ave. and confiscated
36 kilograms of "shabu" and a firearm. The case was filed but was
eventually dismissed by the court for some technicalities. Barbers'
police witnesses who testified in the court erred in their testimonies.
The police officers concerned intentionally committed errors while
being cross-examined and contradicted their own sworn statements
which we may call in the police lingo as "binutasan ang kaso".
Money must have caused the intentional dismissal of the case since
Mr Lawrence Wang is the biggest supplier of "shabu" in South East
Asia and America. Wang thereafter was allowed to leave the country
at the dismay of US-DEA and other international police counterparts
stationed in Manila. Barber's policemen were never subjected to
any investigation or punished after the said incident. President
Fidel Ramos was so furious and ordered the manhunt for Wang who
until now supplies the country with shabu from China. After that,
Ramos decided not to inform Barbers about the planned raid on another
suspected druglord, Alfredo Tiongco.

How Much is the President Worth?
Since Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo entered the political scene
as a Senator in 1992, her net worth increased more than tenfold
from P6.7 Million to P72 Million in 2002. (more)
"The empress strikes again The empress of Crame,
that is. Without enough gawgaw yet on her face, Rosebud charges
to the Western Police District station and bawls out Pete Bulaong's
policemen, for daring to apprehend her nephew, a young thug called
Blessius Ong. Blessed by the empress of Crame, he drives around
without a driver's license, enters a one-way street in busy Malate,
then drives like crazy, away from a mobile patrol car whose cops
naturally gave him chase for such bizarre conduct.
"Rosebud, television cameras in tow, sashays into
the police station and gives the silent cops a piece of her dubious
mind. Sila pa ang masama! Sila pa ang may kasalanan! Any right-thinking
cop would have had her arrested on the spot, and booked her for
disturbance of the peace and interfering in police duties. But no.
Tamene na lang sila. They trembled before the unholy presence of
the empress of Crame.

A group of NBI agents and employees led by NBI Deputy
Director Samuel Ong yesterday started a series of protest actions
aimed at getting Reynaldo Wycoco dismissed as NBI chief.
"The only real issue here is the jueteng payola.
For the first time in the history of the NBI, an NBI director has
been denounced for receiving monthly jueteng payola," said
Ong, one of three deputy directors re-assigned by Wycoco after Malaya
came out with a report on Wycoco's alleged receipt of P5 million
a month from jueteng
"And for the first time in the history of the
NBI a mass protest been made by the NBI people demanding for the
ouster of their director. The good name and image of the NBI has
been besmirched by this jueteng payola allegation," Ong said.

CLARIFICATION AND POSITION ON DIFFERENT ISSUES
Herman Tiu Laurel
Friday, 06 27, 2003
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) sends
out its signals on the anti-drug campaign of Arroyo and Barbers,
and they aren't looking good. It seems that Lacson instead is being
cast in a better light. It all appears to be the problem with the
Wang thing. Lawrence Wang, drug kingpin who was sprung from jail
from beneath the nose of his "friend" and then Department of Interior
and Local Government Secretary Robert Barbers, is getting the senator
and aspiring anti-drugs czar into a tangle. Though long gone from
the reach of local law enforcers, the story of police payoffs and
bribery comes back to drive Barbers weng-weng (to go crazy, in local
The last laugh now seems to be Lacson's, specially
after that dinner invitation from foreign police attachés. The dinner
included the US DEA representatives in the country. Being in their
very sensitive posts make these anti-drugs diplomatic corps members
absolutely careful and being invited to their tete-a-tete is certainly
a boost. This news surfaced the day after my column dissecting the
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde character of Anglo-US anti-drugs policy,
with Lacson working with the genuine anti-drugs faction like the
DEA and his detractors actually networks of the drugs promoting
Barbers' discomfiture increases as more facts surface
about his chummy relations with the escaped drugs kingpin Lawrence
Wang, as the Tribune news reports show. Wang's friend, a certain
"Michael," was interviewed over dzEC radio giving the gory details
to the close relations with Lawrence Wang of Barbers and the "four
aces" Arroyo has floated to lead her P1-billion anti-drugs campaign.
More gory details of Roxas Boulevard Legaspi Tower condominiums,
money and other properties were given, all in exchange for the liberty
of the drugs kingpin that did eventually happen.
Lacson, on the other hand, can be very happy that
good guy Dr. Jekyll in the US anti-drugs policy of the DEA acknowledged
the "active role" Lacson provided in the anti-drugs campaign when
he was still with the Philippine National Police. Affirmation of
Lacson's role was made in remarks of outgoing DEA country attaché,
Jeffrey Wendling, at his despedida hosted by United States Ambassador
Ricciardone. Meanwhile, we have confirmation from our PCSO sources
that Arroyo will be committing graft in getting P1 billion from
the PCSO for her anti-drugs campaign while no such fund is available.
