Villar C-5 Project Scam

September 22, 2008 § 1 Comment

A Congressional insertion is not illegal per se. Senate president Manny Villar can do hundreds of insertions if he wants, and that’s not why Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is now going around town harping like a town barker. No.

What Ping wants to know is why Villar inserted two (2) 200 million peso budgetary provisions in the 2008 budget in the same project. Yes, probably, that too is not illegal. What is important to know is this–Villar made it to benefit some real estate projects which he owns. That is not patently illegal–yet, it is definitely immoral.

Villar needs to consider that to be legal is definitely not necessarily be moral in this country. And, since he is gunning for the high post, he needs to remember that he has both the legal and the moral responsibility to be the prime example of what it is to be legal and what is to be moral. Or, better yet, be legal and moral at the same time.

§ One Response to Villar C-5 Project Scam

  • An Open Letter to Senator Manny Villar

    I am Amos “mOi” Victorio, I don’t know if you are aware of my name, but last year 2007 I was awarded Top Business Partner representing Premier Communities Partners Inc. a subsidiary company of Communities Philippines Inc. a company under Vista Land and Lifescapes a publicly listed company you founded and family owned majority shares. I think you attend the Awards Night at Insular Auditorium at Filinvest Corporate City.

    First, I am sorry to see the news today that you are replaced by the now Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. Honestly, I feel glad and vindicated. I am sorry, but since year 1999 I am selling your subdivisions, and last year was when I got to the peak of my career when I got awarded for my efforts. I attributed my success to the success of your company. I would not be where I am now without Crown Asia, Camella Homes and other brands you created.

    Secondly I would like to ask you, Where are my remaining receivables? Why the people that handles your company in Bulacan deprived me of receiving my remaining commission which I deserved to enjoy. Why I cannot have access to records so transactions will be transparent? Is this the “Corporate Values” your company practices? I believe this was not my orientation during my early years in your company. My poor elderly mother who once begged for the General Manager of your company to have access to my remaining receivables was totally shoved away. I am just asking for my money that I worked for. And what ever outside problems I had with other entity must not involve your company, because it is outside the company parameters and the agreement I had with your company. Unless, your people secretly conniving outside your company.

    Third, where are my taxes? For years I am working as seller for your subdivisions, my commissions and other incentives was automatically deducted 10% withholding taxes. I just want to have the copies of BIR remittances; I think it is my right as a taxpayer to receive a copy of receipt that the government actually receives my money.

    I am now with another developer. I am broken hearted because your company that I respected for so long and molded me to embrace real estate selling has treated me badly. There are changes and decisions I need to take, your management might not be happy and support those changes and decisions I made. But it is not an excuse for your company to deprive me of what I still deserve to have. Or I will believe that stealing might be a common practice in your company.

    Lastly, just like my concern with my withholding taxes remittances. As a Filipino, I will quote Senator Jamby Madrigal as she spoke today on TV evening news that “Sipag at Tiyaga was turned to C-5 at Taga.” I hope not.
