  • The lethargic approach of politicians towards the problem of corruption is the root cause of this

      I would not support Manny Villar in this upcoming presidential polls. The reason merely because he is a corrupt individual. I find his coy demeanor in acknowledging the allegation in the C5 road controversy an acceptance of guilt.

      I hope people won’t be befuddled by his constant cry that he can change the Philippines from its current state. The constant display of his achievements in helping Overseas Filipino Workers, granting scholarships, and even emphasizing that he started a pauper

      is just plain hypocrisy. The lethargic approach of politicians towards the problem of corruption is the root cause of this. I hope Manny Villar has the idea on how to solve this. But sadly, he is one practicing graft and corruption. How can we expect that he can change this country?

      Republic Act No. 3019 or otherwise known as Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act punishes the following:

      Sec. 3. Corrupt practices of public officers. - In addition to acts or omissions ...

      • of public officers already penalized by existing law, the following shall constitute corrupt practices of any public officer and are hereby declared to be unlawful:

        …… (h) Directly or indirectly having financial or pecuniary interest in any business, contract or transaction in connection with which he intervenes or takes part in his official capacity, or in which he is prohibited by the Constitution or by any law from having any interest…….

        Manny Villar allegedly benefited from two road projects because even

        if the government was not asked for the value of the road extension projects, his residential subdivisions gained through the road projects traversing in that place. The value of those properties increased because of that newly opened road. This is the gain contemplated under the law.

        What kind of president will he be when he holds the highest position in the land? Filipinos should be mindful about this kind of problem because it is corruption which causes poverty.
