Corruption in the Philippines

Share

Corruption is everywhere... inside our homes, small stores, markets, companies, government..

But the big questions are... Will we let ourselves be victims of corruption? Can we just let our hard-earned money be placed on the wrong hands?




Here's an example (real story) of a local government corruption here in the Philippines:
http://everything-you-should-know.blogspot.com/2009/02/social-welfare-and-development.html

Annoying, isn't it? Even the poorest of the poor are becoming victims. And the sad truth is, the ones doing this are their fellow Filipinos. Municipal Social Welfare and Development offices are built to help those who are really in need for free, but what are they doing? Feeding their own pockets?

Now let's talk about the higher government officials. Instead of focusing their time and attention to the real problems of their country, they're spending their whole time arguing each other for power. They always accuse their co-officials of corruption, but what are they doing? Are they really doing something to eliminate the main problem? I don't think so. They're just dragging their names for the next election! After the election, I'm sure, same thing would happen and the real problems of the country would be neglected again.

Going back to corruption.. what can we do to eliminate, or at least, avoid it especially now that we cannot just trust these officials? The only thing we can do (if you or someone you know becomes a victim) is speak up, report these monsters immediately to the media. Why media? Because it is the only thing that these monsters are afraid of... getting busted infront of the camera!

Let's not tolerate them. It's about time to put things in their right places. If you help a monster, then you are a monster too!

Perhaps the biggest human rights violation is the politicians

stealing from our workers. Imagine losing 25% of your basic just to

feed these scum of society while they live like kings. We too dream

of having a good life and people who try to steal that dream should

be dealt with swiftly.
Do not be fooled by promises from

people who just want to ensure their political dynasties.

We need to educate, feed and awaken our people to avoid being abused

by such powers.

They violate our rights because they have no love,respect or

appreciation of our hard work.

Name: ENGR SEBASTIAN PAGCU JR.
Address/Office: RichTown2, Dela Paz Norte, City of San Fernando Pampanga/ DPWH, Region 3, Sindalan, San Fernando, Pampanga
Postion: Regional Equipment Engineer (Region III)
Crime committed:
You need to investigate him again on the alleged 370M funds on their department. This man is spending the money now, some were named to him and some arent to keep their crime. There is a basis on this and please investigate it. I do believe in you department, sp do it for us. Everyday this man is spending thousands of money! Read my letter again below

hi! i want to report corruption. there was an issue before last 2004 regarding the " ghost deliveries and ghost repairs" made on one of your department. ENGR SEBASTIAN PAGCU JR. (oic regional Regional Equipment Services) was accused of the $370M given by JINA (Japanese company). This was investigated. Nothing happens on this. Maybe the ombudsman assigned was bribed. it was broadcasted also by mr joe taruc, base on the info he was given money to stop accusing and airing him on the radio. this was stopped maybe big amount of money was given. years passed already, 4 yrs i think. but why this person suddenly made a blast to his wealth. built a house worth of millions, buying cars, luxury cars worth of millions, going out spending thousands, treating others spending thousands, donated a gym fully equipped spending thousands, renovated the subdivision gate spending thousands, celebrating birthdays spenidng thousands. there are lots of poor people not eating, there were several government projects not finish bec they lack of funds. and why this person celebrating and not even bothered. if you will do the math, they wont have those things. try to open the case and investigate this should not happen. i will email several times so that you will realize something about this. he may not be as popular as other accused government officials but still big money is behind this. 370M!!!

Whoever is the newly elect Philippine president, is the newly elect corrupt president. Come on, was there any changes from previous presidents? Majority of them are corrupt including their administration. I think for a better future of the country, I think the USA should liberate the entire country just like what they did to Iraq. Put Philippines in order and a better government.

I strongly agree on the media exposure - everyone should know, they should be named and shamed.

I also like to refer to an imaginative way to deal with corruption, which is being tried in India:

The government should really look into the postal services, theft and corruption are widespread and despite all the complaints no one is doing anything about it, custom officials confiscating personal property of packages sent to respondents, of which the respondents have never been notified.

You'r playing a dirty game Philpost
get your act together, you will be caught out in the end, I see that you don't like complaint, no place to complain on your official website, BAD
