This is a good development. P-Noy should have Atty. Catalino Generillo, who was sacked by Gloria Arroyo's corrupt government when he was becoming successful in nailing down the subject tax evader, reverted back to handle the case. I believe he unearthed a document at the National Archives showing Tan et al's signatur...es in the 60/40 sharing agreement with the late Ilocano president. Madam Imelda, now a congresswoman, should cause herself to take the witness stand for the government. That way, she would be appreciated by the people as bent on bring this ingrate tax evader to the bar of justice so as to redeem in a significant way their tarnished name. Per Ms. Solita Monsod's estimate based on the report of Global Business Monitor that she checked, between P220 billion and P300 billion is due for recovery by a non-corrupt government in the case. That would be a big amount for the Filipino people courtesy of the Marcoses.
Our "Kung Walang corrupt, walang mahirap" landslide president should not lose any moment in running after this money stolen from the impoverished Filipinos.
Only some months ago, this vile economic saboteur who speaks Pilipino with twisted tongue for no one to understand, had his and FM's (with 60% share per said civil case) Fortune Tobacco Corp. (FTC) merged with Philip Morris Philippines, Inc. (PMPI). What for? He must be feeling now that his world is getting smaller everyday, that the world seems no longer rotates around him, except probably to the likes of the BIR. Re said merger, FTC had then before which no less than 70% share of the cigarette market, while PMPI had no more than 25%. The sharing between them is 49/51 in favor of the latter. Without logic? As said by an insider about the matter, "Pinera iyon. Sa katakawan ni Lucio Tan, pinera iyon. Next year, 10% na lang iyan." And his Northern Tobacco Redrying Corporation in Vigan is said to have changed hands totally already. It is said to be in the hands now of PMPI, when this interest of Tan is one of those I brought up in my case against Tan in the August 4, 2008 session of the Vigan City Council, per earnest invitation of the "honorables" that had not been paying the tobacco tax since the inception of the city ordinance in the early 1970's. These "honorables" should also be held liable per P-Noy's "Kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap" battle cry. They did nothing, like the concerned government officials whom I informed duly about my said case, apprentlly corrupted after some closed door meetings between some "honorables" and Tan's ilk happened in the corridor of City Hall.
Yes, our landslide President should think all things which this evil tax evader, labor oppressor and cheater anfd farmer exploiter might do so as the government would not be able to recover the bulk of the Filipino money he has stolen and stashed in other kingdoms. Shackle him now together with his "families" and ilks who are with him as a bunch of as thick as thieves? Only recently, Sec. Cesar Purisima said that his DOF "eyed" of making smuggling and tax evasion in the threshold of P50 million a crime of plunder, which has life time imprisonment as sentence. This plan should not stay "eyed" any longer. This "eyed" should be converted into action soonest.
