Senate at Last for Bolante? (House of Representatives Gustong ring Makisawsaw?)

Now that Jocelyn ‘Joc-joc’ Bolante has been cleared by his doctors of life-threatening illness, perhaps he can now be brought to the Senate by the sergeant-at-arms who has custody of him. Joc-joc Bolante who was believed to be architect in the diversion of P728-million in fertilizer funds for President Arroyo’s election campaign in 2004 had been brought to St. Luke’s hospital after his deportation from the United States last October 28, 2008. This denied his transfer to the Senate’s detention facility after the Senate’s Sgt.-at-Arms had custody of him based on the warrant of arrest issued by the 13th congress. 

Doctors found no life-threatening illness on him after undergoing a battery o medical tests which include stress test, gastoscopy, colonoscopy, CT scan of the whole abdomen, coronary CT angiography, prostate test, etc. According to his doctors, Bolante is suffering from peptic ulcer, sleep apnea, and esophagitis. There is no reason to confine him anymore but release him from the hospital. This is good news for him insofar as his health is concerned. It is a but a bad news on the other hand as he will be transferred to the detention facility of the Senate and faces the senators who are now meeting in the reopening of the Fertilzer Scam investigation. 

But how ready are the Senators now to reopen the case and inquire on him regarding the alleged diversion of the 728-millions in fertilizer funds for President Arroyo’s election campaign in 2004. Angara said Bolante should no longer appear before the Senate but to the Ombudsman which is conducting a preliminary investigation of the case since Senate had already concluded its investigation on the P728 million fertilizer funds. But other Senators disagree, particularly Senate majority floor leader Francis Pangilinan who supports the view that the Senate investigation is not yet completed since report of the 13th Congress stated that the probe cannot be closed without Bolante’s testimony.

In this regard the Senators are meeting trying to seek a consensus on having Bolante appear at the Senate’s blue ribbon committee hearing. Pangilinan said he supports the view that the Senate investigation is not yet finished since even the report of the 13th Congress said the probe cannot be closed without Bolante’s testimony. 

But the Senate rules committee on Monday attended by nine senators in a closed-door hearing upheld the validity the arrest order issued by the Senate on 2005 to arrest former Agriculture undersecretary Jocelyn ‘Joc-joc’ Bolante and endorsed reopening of investigation on the P728 million fertilizer fund scam. Pangilinan said in a briefing that the committee had determined arrest order to be remained in force because of continued defiance by Bolante on the summons and refusal to appear before the Senate to explain his participation on the diversion of the fertilizer funds.   The probe was referred to the Senate blue ribbon committee which before hand had already decided to call a “hearing later this week.” 

But how long will it take the Senate to go on the reinvestigation of the fertilize scam? They should act fast before Joc-joc Bolante will be released from the hospital. Bolante’s friends are not happy to see him talk on what he knows in the Senate.  House Speaker Prospero Nograles for one believes that the investigation on the fertilizer fund is no longer Senate’s business but the Ombudsman. However, should the House agriculture committee headed by Rep. Abraham Mitra wants to hold a hearing as part of Congress’ oversight function then there is nothing that can bar it from doing so. Mitra had already expressed interest on Bolante to appear before the House of Representatives to shed light on the fertilizer fund.  

Delikado ito, mukhang gustong makisawsaw din ang Kongreso dito sa fertizer scam. Ang lagay maglalagare ba siya ngayon sa upper house at saka  sa lower house  sa kaiimbistiga? Ano na namang laro ito? At bakit ngayon lang nagkainteres ang House of Representatives sa kasong ito? Bakit hindi noong araw pa? Hindi kaya may kaugnayan ito sa sinabi ng Ombudsman na may mga Kongresista na sabit (criminally liable) sa fertilizer scam? Masaya ito, abangan ang susunod na kabanata. Joc-joc, humanda ka!

  1. Pagtatawanan lang ni Joc-joc ang Senado. Ang sasabihin lang ng kumag na ito, No Talk no Injury, hehehe.

  2. By the way, the Congressmen want his “assholing” too to be investigated by Mitra and his gang. I can sense some problems on the two Houses having a tug of war on who can have Mr. Bolante.

  3. Sarap ng pizza mo girl. Sana maulit uli iyong date natin. Kaya ka pala sexy ay toothpick at tubig lang ang inoorder mo, hehehe.

  4. Segundina,
    Thanks for your brilliant comments. Salamat at nagustuhan mo iyong pinakain ko sa iyong pizza. Kahit maubos lahat ang pera ko okay lang dahil magka-ibigan naman tayo. Mahal kita kaya sekreto na lang natin kung gaano ka kalakas kumain, hehehe.

  5. leche! mahabang research ang gagawin ko to be abreast sa Bulateng Case na to! hahaha!

  6. I was out in circulation for so many days and already there’s a lot of good and humorous posting in your blog.Congrats! I love reading it.How I wish I should become a rich woman too so that I can buy a lot of sex.HIHIHIHIHIH! Kidding-kidding only.

  7. The First gentleman goons and Bolante’s boys have less than 48 hours to look for Capt.Nick Faeldon, not to arrest the captain but to borrow his daring escape anting-anting.If they could not find Capt.Faeldon the Senate sergeant-at-arms will haul Bolante’s ulcer stomach in the Senate, then,Sen Pimentel will make Bolante his punching bag and a shooting practice for Sen.Lacson.

  8. Right, and here is another captain who is also wanted by some pretty women because he is a hero and many are wanting to see his “one foot” despite having only one testicle. http://segundina.wordpress.com

  9. Update kay Bulate, I mean Bolante, pinayagan na naman ng mga Senador na magpahinga siya sa hospital pero sa Huwebes ay susunduin na siya para papagsalitain sa Senado. Dahil dito ay dismayadong dismayado si Atty. Roque. Baka daw lumipad si Bolante palabas ng bansa. Naku ha baka nga makawal na naman si Palos at hanggang ngitngit na lang kayo diyan ni Barrabas.

  10. Si Mayor Jejomar Binay ng Makati City tatakbo daw siya para sa pagkapangulo ng 2010 presidential election. Is rin itong beterano, pero hindi sa World War 2 o sa Vietnam War. Beterano siya sa kalsada noong kasagsagan ng mga rally laban kay pangulong Marcos. Isa siyang better-run kapag binobomba na sila ng mga pulis at sundalo ng tubig at saka tear-gas. Pero may charisma ba siya katulad ni Obama, itong si Jo-bama Binay? http://kidlatanvillage.wordpress.com

  11. ibang klaseng drama na naman ito, pero sempre, milyones na pesoses ulit. ang dami palang pera ng pinas e yun nga lang, hindi napupunta para sa mga pinoys, hay, buntunghininga na naman

  12. Bolante ay wala na raw sakit at wala na siyang dahilan para humarap sa senado.

  13. Kilala namin iyang si Binay bilang isang taga Makati, saludo kami sa kanyang mga programa. May puso siya para sa mga mahihirap. At saka si Binay nagsisilbing tulay iyan nang magka-isa ang mga mahihirap at mayayaman. Nakikinabang ang mga mahihirap sa buis ng mga mayayaman,nakikinabang din ang mga mayayaman sa serbisyo ng mga mahihirap. Through education and social services Binay could bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. Social mobility is for all. Binay is a pragmatic leader, he is always on the practical side of governance. Naglilibot na iyan sa buong bansa at marami nang sumusuporta sa kanya. Binay is not a man who says something na walang basehan. May basehan ang pagsasabi niya na nais niyang sumali sa 2010 election bilang kandidato sa pagkapangulo. If given a chance with his pragmatic approach to governance, he can unite the entire country.
    Sabi nga ni Captain Brochador–I only have one foot but I still have two hands to serve. Si Binay kumpleto ang paa at kamay, kayang-kaya niyang pag-isahin ang bansa para sa isang maunlad na kinabukasan.

  14. Walang sakit iyang si Bolante, umaarte lang iyan nang di siya mapahiya. At saka natatakot din iyan dahil kagaya ng captain Broachador ni Segundina, ay iisa siguro, I repeat iisa siguro, ang kanyang basketball, or no “balls” at all dahil sa takot. Magsabi ka ng totoo Bolante nang dika kinukutya ng mga tao. Gusto kitang ipagtanggol sa mga nagsasabi ng masasakit na bagay laban sa iyo, I don’t want people calling you “testicular coward.”

  15. Headline sa Abante Tonite: PALASYO, NAGPISTA

    Nagpista ang buong Malacañang sa ginawang pag-absuwelto ni dating Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante kay Pangulong Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo sa P728 milyong fertilizer fund scam sa pagharap nito sa Senado kahapon.

    Kapwa sinabi nina Presidential Adviser on Political Affairs Gabriel Claudio at Deputy Presidential Spokeswoman Lorelei Fajardo na malugod nilang tinatanggap ang klaripikasyon ni Bolante at iginiit na ito ay totoo.
    Tiniyak naman ni Fajardo na bago ang testimonya ni Bolante ay wala itong naging komunikasyon sa Malacañang.
    ***
    Hahaha!!! Katotohanan o guniguni?!!

  16. Ayun, korek si Segundina. Hinalakhakan nga lang ni dyokdyok ang mga senaTongs.
