Full military honor kay Reyes

Pumayag na ang pamil­ya ni dating Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Angelo Reyes sa alok ng AFP na full military honor sa yumaong heneral.

Tinanggap ng pamilya ang alok ni AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Jose Mabanta na igagawad kay Reyes ang honor at ce­remonials na nararapat sa dating chief of staff at Defense secretary.
..........
Full military honor daw sa mga KAWATAN. His soul may burn in HELL.

Junior,
You know little about what you are typing. Stop looking stupid and give it a rest.

Beyond your ignorance, those typos and horrible grammar simply demonstrate your lack of contact with reality.

A recent death at NAIA was initially called a suicide. The very day it happened, I noted that not all is as it seems. Funny how that suicide was a homicide, huh?

Try decaf and let those of us who can think do it for you.

The action of Mr. Reyes by taking his own life shows that he is guilty of the graft charge against him & he must be burried like ordinary citizen.
The general who offer him a full military honor is a crook he does know the law of honor. For I know the full military honor is applied only to these die in line of duty, neither our "FLAG" he is not entitled to receive it for he dis honor the counrty.
The govt. must make a law concerning the matter.
Philippines have pity on your people for they are missusing your name. Move forward & eliminate
these crook who dis-honor you.

The DFA was being blamed for allowing the AFP to have direct access to the fund, which apparently was a request within the military hierarchy and was later found out in Congress hearings that these were made part of the conversions going on in the institution where generals earn their pabaons and pasalubongs.

Hilario Davide in withholding the funds indicated that he had at least a hint of the corrupt practices but he and the DFA did not raise it to higher authorities.

At that time, it was Gloria who was Commander-in-Chief and it would appear futile to blow the whistle about this irregularity to her, but Davide could have done something more meaningful than withhold the money.
........
Gloria, Davided, Jr. Are in it together! And now Noynoy going to appoint him for truth commission what truth Hilario going to ferret out, If is not going to cover-out all their corruption! Of all the people why is it Noynoy going to appoint him when Hilario Davided, Jr. The one swear in Gloria Arroyo, Into her stolen power! Not atleast Noynoy want to make sure Gloria Arroyo, Never go to jail with all her sins to the filipino people. Its means they're in it together. Cover-up! their stinky shit. TOWID NA LANDAS MY FOOT.
.........

Of all people, Davide, a former Chief Justice who was an accomplice in bringing the blight of Gloria to the nation, could have sought Gloria’s intervention to have the practice stopped or the greed “moderated” as former Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Romulo Neri would put it, to spare the UN funds which are badly needed by Filipino soldiers who are on foreign tours.

What Davide decided to do, however, would shame King Solomon. He deposited the UN money in New York, which would be another violation of the conduct in the disposition of the funds probably both with the UN and government rules.

The withholding of the funds, that are used to reimburse the AFP for the upkeep of Filipino peacekeepers, could also be the reason for the sudden slash in the compensation of soldiers chosen for the foreign tours.

Davide had the foresight that the irregularity in the diversion of the UN funds would blow up in the future and withholding the funds was apparently meant to save his hide from being complicit in the plunderous practice? Duh.

He should be held accountable for being an accessory in not doing anything more to stop the shameful act.

At least, he should be made to appear before Congress to explain to the people why through all these years he chose to be silent about the whole issue.

And he’s supposed to head the body to ferret out truth.

DIE HARD III

Herman Tiu Laurel

I checked the Chan Robles Internet law library and found Republic Act 9166 of June 2002 defining the lawful salary of a general of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), under “Section 2. Pay Schedule,” as: General, P30,000 (a month); Lieutenant General, P29,000; Major General, P28,000; Brigadier General, P27,000; and so on.

An AFP officer confirmed these figures’ continuing validity today. Thus, with a few extra compensation, such as combat pay, the total take would bring the general’s legal income to only about P50,000 a month. Given this, can any AFP general, commodore, or admiral expect to maintain a standard of living that befits a member of the top echelons of society?
..........
Wow, You mean to say, They're not even making enough money to buy their grocery but yet they can afford to buy a house in the U.S.A. over 1/2 million dollars cash. Where did they get the money if they didn't stole it. Throw their ass in jail where they belong alone with the X-FAKE PRESIDENT OF CEBU GLORIA ARROYO!

Already, in the House hearings, we find out that even the Department of Foreign Affairs is involved in such military deals, such as millions in United Nations funds for the Filipino peacekeepers have been retained by the UN Philippine Representative Hilario Davide Jr., which the Commission on Audit pointed out was illegal and irregular.

Why are all these allowed to go on and on?

Mainly because it is more “honorable” to simply keep quiet and keep the tradition going?

HILARIO DAVIDED, JR. Is one of the people who help install Gloria Arroyo, Into her stolen power! His one of the people who rob the government coffer and yet Noynoy going to appoint him to head the truth commission. Or it is that Noynoy just want to make sure Gloria Arroyo, Is not going to rot in jail. after all they're partner in crimes!

all due respects, you are wrong.
nothing has been proven.
his death leaves doubt as to his guilt or innocence.
and when there is just one iota of doubt, then the law says you are innocent.
here in the states, it takes just one juror with a doubt as to your guilt to cause a mistrial.
therefore, since Mr. Reyes has not been proven to be crook or saint, he is deemed saint, and in view of his past meritorious service to his country, is entitled to full military honors.

don't get me wrong.
I hate what happened, the AFP scandal and so on, but fair is fair.

As a U.S. bound OFW, why do you care so much about a past President of the Philippines?

----------

I have stated this prior (actually numerous times now) but since some of our members have difficulties reading I will remind the board.

We have numerous military and PNP brass who supplement their incomes with the largesse of international aid/assistance. I have personally seen storage units stocked with air cons, refs, boats, beds, first aid equipment, stoves, washing machines, radios, karaoke machines, small ATVs, motorbikes and cars. Almost all was given to the AFP or PNP for disbursement or funds were used to accumulate the stockpile. Almost all is placed in the names of family or friends. It is not done upon the orders of Malacanang. It is simply the Philippine way.

I have likewise seen barangay captains, governors, mayors and congress people who have similar stashes. They herald from all parties and faiths. I recall seeing one well known opposition governor proudly displaying his cell phone warehouse. He had thousands of units there, many were recent models and all would be sold through his connections. He boasted of an NGO that had just supplied him with $50,000 for his community. He drove a newer Range Rover and employed a security detail of a dozen. He needed them as the governor sold secrets to both sides of the nearby civil war. Gloria had nothing to do with this either. It is simply the way of the Philippines. Take more than you earn and blame everyone else.

Stick to cleaning the homes of your American bosses. Your constant rants against GMA must be a result of breathing all of those cleaning supplies. LOL!

We finally agree. It is easy to make a homicide look like anything but. They tried to do it at NAIA, fooling only those who are ignorant as to how things actually happen here.

Military officers do not kill themselves by shooting a bullet through their torso out of despair.

Fair is not equal. The man was a financial genius. His investment dividends enabled him to purchase 2 houses in California. The expenses incurred in the 42 trips his wife took came from the same kitty. The man was squeaky clean. Convince the Vatican to fast track his sainthood.

A man who commits suicide at the grave of his mother may not exactly be atoning for his sins. He may simply have sought eternal peace as the only way of extricating himself from the rot his commander-in-chief might have forced him to create, not for Angie Reyes, but for them.

He may have realized too late that his "betrayal" of Joseph Estrada, his commander-in-chief, for being corrupt, only left him in a bigger web of corruption of the leader he supported.

He supported Gloria Arroyo, So that they're the one can rob the government coffer. Now, That he got catch stealing the taxespayer's money he kill himself because his afraid to face his accuser.

Until the end he still protecting the people he help install into her stolen power while she's laughing all the way to the bank his 6ft. Under! Talagang gago. I guess the only reason he done that to protect all the loot they stole in order for his family to live like a king!
