Hermenegildo Flores, Rebolusyonaryong Bayaning Filipino


Ang marker sa Casa Real ng Boac na nagsasaad ng pagkamatay ni Flores dito

Sino ang bayaning si HERMENEGILDO FLORES? 

(Boac, Marinduque) - Si Hermenegildo Flores na pinaslang sa Casa Real ng Boac, siya na namuno sa Rebolusyonaryong Puwersa sa Marinduque laban sa Espanya, ay sadyang hindi binigyan ng pang-Kristiyanong libing. Sinunog ang kanyang malamig na bangkay sa Ilog Boac kasama ng bangkay din ni Remigio Medina ng Torrijos.

Higit sa isang-daang taon pa ang lumipas bago naging maliwanag kung sino talaga si Hermenegildo Flores. Masasabi ko po sa mga mambabasa na ang inyong abang lingkod lamang, sa pamamagitan ng mahaba at masusing pananaliksik, ang nakapagtagni-tagni ng ilang mga mahahalagang datos. Naging maliwanag sa pag-aaral ko na si Hermenigildo Flores, ang kinilalang makata, ang siya ring 'Hermenegildo Flores' na namuno ng Himagsikan sa isla ng Marinduque.

Si Flores, mula siya sa Bulacan, ay kaibigan ni Hen. Emilio Aguinaldo. Taliwas sa paniniwalang mababasa sa ilang nailimbag na tala na hindi raw nakipaghamok si Flores, maliwanag na iniwan niya ang kanyang pagsusulat para direktang makibaka at sa isla ng Marinduque siya napadpad. 

Nagtungo si Flores, una sa Mindoro at nagtungo sa Marinduque (na bahagi noon ng Mindoro), sa huling bahagi ng 1896, para hikayatin ang mga makabayan sa dalawang lugar na ito na manindigan para sa Kalayaan. Sa Sta. Cruz, Marinduque niya itinayo ang kanyang kuta. (The Philippine Revolution, Gregorio F. Zaide, footnote on page 145).

Pinangunahan ni Flores ang paglusob sa Casa Real ng Sta. Cruz noong Marso 4, 1897. Noong Marso 23, 1897, (petsa ng panunumpa ni Aguinaldo bilang Pangulo ng revolutionary government), tinipon ni Flores sa Sta. Cruz ang mga makabayan ng Mindoro at Marinduque. Ang tawag sa kanya ng mga taga-rito ay si 'Kang Bindoy'. Si Flores ang namatnugot sa pulong kung saan ay si Mariano Ricaplaza (ng Sta. Cruz), naman ang naging Kalihim. Sa pagpupulong na iyon, matapos ang mahabang pag-uusap ay nanumpa ang mga sumapi ng kanilang katapatan at pag-anib sa Rebolusyon. Sa pagkakataong iyon ay nahirang na Gobernador ng Mindoro at Marinduque si Flores (provisional revolutionary government).

Marcelo H. Del Pilar
Andres Bonifacio

FLORES-DEL PILAR-BONIFACIO

Si Flores ay kaliga nina Marcelo H. del Pilar at Andres Bonifacio bilang mga makata na sukdulan ang pagmamahal sa bayan. Silang tatlo ay nagkaroon ng katangi-tanging ugnayan sa pamamagitan ng trilohiya (trilogy) ng mga tula na nagpapahayag ng mga sentimyento mula sa konsepto ng repormismo hanggang sa paghihiwalay ng Pilipinas sa Espanya. Lumitaw ang trilogy na ito sa huling dekada ng ika-19 na siglo.

Si Flores ang sumulat ng una sa trilohiyang ito sa TAGALOG NOONG 1888. Ito ang “’HIBIK NG FILIPINAS SA INANG ESPANYA”. Sa panahong ito ay nasa London si Dr. Jose Rizal at nagsasagawa ng pananaliksik para sa kanyang anotasyon sa isinulat ni Morga tungkol sa Pilipinas.

Ang “Hibik” ay binubuo ng 66 quatrains (mga saknong), kung saan ang makata na nagsasalita bilang isang pinahihirapan na anak na babae ay nagbubuhos ng kanyang pangunahing karaingan sa Inang Espanya – tulad ng mga pang-aabuso ng mga prayle, ng mga pari!

(Ang anak na babae ay ganito ang reklamo):
"Sa bawat kapaki-pakinabang mo, ayaw ng prayleng ako'y makinabang, sa mga anak ko ay ibig lang isip ay bulagin, ang butas ay takpan ".
(At tinutukoy niya):
"Sa pag-unlad ng kanilang yaman bendita't bendisyon lamang ang puhunan, induluhensiya't iba't ibang bahay ng mga sagrado naman ang kalakal ".
Kaya’t si Flores ay isang propagandista na may ginampanang papel din sa buhay ni Marcelo H. del Pilar, ang nangunguna sa mga propagandistang Pilipino noong panahong iyon.

Tinagurian sa panulat ni Bienvenido Lumbera (National Artist) na si Flores ay "dating guro at kapwa propagandista" (former teacher and fellow propagandist), ni Del Pilar. (Tagalog Poetry, 1870-1898: Tradisyon at mga Impluwensya sa Pag-unlad nito, ni Bienvenido Lumbera).

Bahagi ng 66 na quatrains ng Rebolusyonaryong Tula ni Flores

Isang makasaysayan pang yugto ang magaganap pitong taon mula ng maisulat ni del Pilar (1889), ang kanyang sagot sa tula ni Flores,  “Sagot ng Espana sa Hibik ng Pilipinas” (1889). Mas mahaba with 82 quatrains.

(Itaas) Bahagi naman ng kasagutan ni Marcelo H. Del Pilar sa Rebolusyonaryong Tula ni Hermenegildo Flores. Ang tula ni Del Pilar ay may 82 quatrains.

Dahil noong 1896, ang nagtatag ng Katipunan, si GAT ANDRES BONIFACIO ay sumulat din ng kanyang kasagutan naman sa FLORES-DEL PILAR COMPANION POEMS!

Ito ang “Katapusang Hibik nang Pilipinas sa Ynang Espana” na tinawag na “the climactic moment to the history of Tagalog poetry during the 19th century”. Sa tula ni Bonifacio ang terms of endearment na ginamit sa mga tula nina Flores at Del Pilar ay hindi na ginamit. Ang Espanya ay tinurang “Inang pabaya’t sukaban” at “Inang walang habag”.

Bahagi naman ng panghuling kasagutan ni Gat Andres Bonifacio sa magkakambal na tula nina Flores-Del Pilar ang "Katapusang Hibik ng Pilipinas sa Inang Espanya"
Dalangin ng marami kasama na ako na sa susunod na mga aklat ng kasaysayan ay mabigyan lamang ng kaukulang mga pahina ang naging buhay, pakikipaglaban at pagkamatay ng dahil sa bayan ng bayaning si Hermenegildo Flores.

Ngayong Araw sa Kasaysayan ng Boac: 10 de Octubre 1897

Lagim na naganap sa Casa Real ng Boac

10 DE OCTUBRE 1897.


121 Taon na ang nakakaraan sa bayan ng Boac. Pista ng Santo Rosario. Ang imahen ng Santo Rosario na nilamon ng apoy noong nakaraang Hulyo 2, 2018.

Linggo, Oktubre 10, 1897, "Pista ng Santo Rosario". Isang pinakahihintay na sagradong kaganapan sa makasaysayang bayan ng Boac. Subalit sa pagkakataong ito, ang prusisyon na nagsimula ng 6:00 n.h. ay di pangkaraniwan.

Ang dating imahen ng Santo Rosario.
Naging abo na rin dulot ng Sunog sa Boac noong Hulyo 2, 2018

Dahil di-nagtagal pagkatapos ng prusisyon nang bandang alas-nuwebe ng gabi, may natanggap na balita ang tenienteng Espanol na si Fresnede na nakatalaga sa Casa Real ng Boac – ang mga ‘insurrectos’ daw ay sumusugod na papuntang Boac para salakayin ang Casa Real!

Tinatalakay pa lamang ni Fresnede ang ulat kasama ang kanyang mga cazadores nang biglang sumalakay na nga ang mga rebolusyonistang  mula sa Mogpog, sa pangunguna ni Fabian Medenilla (“Kapitan  Fabian”), ng ‘Mendez unit’ – sumalakay sa Casa Real.

Doon, ang iba pa nilang kasamahan na nasa piitan ay naghihintay sa kanilang magiging kapalaran. Ang mga rebolusyonista ay nakipaglaban armado ng kanilang mga itak at sundang, ang mga cazadores naman ay armado ng kanilang mga baril.

Mga nakapangingilabot na tunog ng hiyawan, pagtangis, hinagpis ng mga tinig-lalaki at mga pagputok ng mga baril ang umalingawngaw sa buong kabayanan. Ang sumunod na kaguluhan sa mga nagaganap ay nararamdaman lamang ng mga taumbayan na labis ang takot at pagkalito para maunawaan kung ano ang nagaganap.

1976 Marker ng NHI para sa 'Liwasan ng Kalayaan' sa Boac.
Nakasaad na bahagi nito:
"Sa pook na ito pinatay ang mga rebolusyonaryong kinabibilangan nina KAPITAN HERMENEGILDO FLORES AT REMIGIO MEDINA NOONG 1897.

Natagpuang patay kinaumagahan sa may pintuan ng isang tanggapan sa silong ng Casa Real si Fabian Medenilla, isang bala ang nakabaon sa kanyang noo na punong-puno ng dugo. Ang bala ay nanggaling sa baril na pag-aari ni Fresnede.

Kasama ang iba pang mga patay na bilanggo sa loob ng selda, natagpuan ang walang buhay na katawan ng komandante ng rebolusyonaryong pwersa sa Marinduque – si Kapitan Herminigildo Flores ("Kapitan Bindoy").  Si Herminigildo Flores (tuwing sinusulat ko ang pangalan niya ay naiiyak ako). Si Flores, ang dakilang makatang Tagalog na inakala ng lahat dahil sa kakulangan ng datos na doon nagmula at natapos ang kanyang naging papel sa Rebolusyon – hanggang sa madiskubre ko na siya rin pala ang Herminigildo Flores na namuno sa mga rebolusyonaryo ng Marinduque noong panahon ng Himagsikan laban sa mga Kastila!

Si Remigio Medina ("Kapitang Mio"), ang rebolusyonaryong pinuno mula naman sa Torrijos, ay natagpuang patay din. Sa isang sukdulang pangungutya, ang mga Espanyol ay nagpasiya na ang mga napatay na "insurrectos" ay hindi raw karapat-dapat na bigyan ng isang Kristiyanong libing, ni "bendita" ni panalangin o kahit pa mababaw na mga libingan.

Ang mga bangkay ng dalawa ay walang habag na hinila papunta sa tabing-ilog ng Boac River, tinakpan ng mga dahon, tuyong kahoy at mga kayakas. Doon sinunog ang kanilang mga bangkay hanggang sa maging mistulang abo na lamang ang lahat. At nagdiwang ang mga casadores.

Ang mga bangkay naman ng iba pang mga rebolusyonaryo ay masasabing mas naging mapalad. Ang mga ito ay dinala sa isang lumang sementeryo sa silangan ng bayan, sa Cemeterio de Tampus na nasa isang burol. Ito ang naging huling pahingahan ng kanilang mga labi at magkakasama silang nilibing sa isang common grave.

Isang bahagi ito ng Cemeterio de Tampus na nabaon na rin sa limot ng mga taga-Boac

Malapit sa sementeryo, isang katawan na lulan ng isang kangga ay nahulog at napag-alamang buhay pa at nagkamalay. Nagmakaawa at hinimok ang mga casadores na iligtas ang kanyang buhay. Sinagot lamang ito ng mga bala, maraming bala hanggang tuluyang mawalan na ito ng hininga at isinama sa mga inilibing.


'10 de Octubre St.' ang ipinangalan noon pang una sa kalyeng nasa harapan ng Casa Real. Ito ay bilang paggunita sa makasaysayang araw na nabanggit kung saan maraming namatay na mga makabayan.

'10 de Octubre St.', Brgy. San Miguel, Boac.
Nawala na ang dating street sign. Bakit kaya?

Mga Kanyon ng Boac. 1751


Ang mga kanyon ay nakasakay na ngayon sa munting karwahe.
MGA MAKASAYSAYANG KANYON NG BOAC, 1751.

Opisyal na idineklarang mga mahahalagang artefacts at yaman. Kinumpirma ng National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) ang katumpakan ng nasaliksik na datos na naisulat ng inyong abang lingkod.

Tila walang seryosong pagpansin sa mga kanyon sa Casa Real ng Boac noon dahil ang mga ito ay nakatambak lamang kung saan saan.



Subalit matapos basahin ang blog ko noong Hunyo 8, 2012 ni dating Konsehal Myke Magalang hinggil sa aking nadiskubre tungkol sa mga kanyon ay nag-isponsor ng isang resolusyon ang butihing Konsehal (God bless him) para sa proteksyon at konserbasyon ng nasabing mga kanyon.



NHCP Chair, Dr. Maria Serena I. Diokno, confirmed the accuracy of the historical data posted on this blog and used it in addition to its own research as basis for declaring them important municipal artefacts and treasures. The March 13, 2014 NHCP letter reads in part:
“Based on our research, "IEC" cannons were manufactured in the 17th to 18th centuries. A key source is the study conducted by the US Department of the Interior Minerals-Management Service (1989) on the archaeological site at the Gulf of Mexico where three cast iron cannons with fabrication marks "IEC" on their right trunnions were recovered.  A similar study of the Society of Historical Archaeology (1990) recovered 2 more IEC cannons in the same area. Analyses of the various data suggest that the site was either the location of a possible grounding of a vessel with subsequent lightening by intentional discard of unnecessary ballast, or a plain shipwreck site. But these studies arrived at a consensus that the cannons were of Swedish origin. The gunfounder marks "IEC" belonged to Jesper (Eliaeson) Ehrencreutz (1648-1722) who founded the Eherendals Bruk Foundry (1690-1722).
“In light of these sources, we confirm the accuracy of the historical data in the Resolution as the basis for declaring 1751 cannons as important municipal artefacts and treasures. We also support your action of securing a place inside the Municipal Building, the original site of the Casa Real, for these cannons."
Aba ay ang ganda pala naman ng kinalabasan!

Para sa karagdagang impormasyon, basahin naman natin ang bahagi na lamang ng SB Resolution adopted Aug. 5, 2013:
“Whereas, currently the three Spanish-period cannons which were used by the Spaniards during their colonization of the Municipality of Boac were left abandoned in front of the Casa Real for almost a decade already, exposed to various elements, unprotected and needing proper preservation;

“Whereas, the biggest of the three cannons has the letters “IEC” on its right trunnion which, according to a research by Mr. Eliseo Obligacion, is the master founder’s mark which can also be seen in cannons found in shipwrecks around the world. In a report according to Obligacion, the marking on the right trunnion of the cannon can be attributed to the following:
“Jesper Eliaeson started the Ehrendal foundry as early as 1689 and was master founder until his death in 1722. Thomas Roth, head of research at the Army Museum in Stockholm, Sweden states, “As far as we know the mark “IE” (for Jasper Eliaeson) was used on one of the trunnions from 1689 to 1695 but it is possible that the mark could have been altered after that year until 1722 when his son Olof, began using “OEC” (Roth 2004). The addition of the “C” to Jesper’s mark may have coincided with his 1695 ennoblement by the Swedish monarchy, and subsequent surname change from Eliaeson to Ehrencreutz (Jobling 1990). A sixty pounder mortar in the Tojhusmuseet in Copenhagen has IEC on the right trunnion and 1721 on the left, indicating its manufacture one year before Jesper Ehrencreutz’s death (Brown 2005)."
“Whereas, the letters on the right trunnion of the vintage cannon were properly recorded in a picture by Obligacion as shown below: (Image)


“Whereas, the left trunnion of the cannon was also marked with numbers most likely identified as “1751” which may be indicated as the casting date. After cleaning the left trunnion of the cannon, the following picture taken by Obligacion clearly displayed the casting date: (Image)

“Whereas, according to the same research by Obligacion, on how did the cannons get to Boac, can be explained in this information:
“The two largest producers of cast iron artillery in the last half of the 17th century and throughout the 18th century were England and Sweden. (Frantzen 2004). Ordnance exports from both countries were prevalent throughout Europe and anywhere Europeans traded. The reality is that the international ordnance trade was so complex that once guns left the foundry they could end up on ships of any nationality”…

Nakasakay na po ngayon ang dalawa sa tatlong kanyon sa isang mababang karwahe na may disenyong dalawang gulong sa magkabilang bahagi. Nasa likuran ito ng bantog nang monumento ni Dr. Jose Rizal at kapag papasok ka sa magarang Casa Real ay nasa magkabilang bahagi ng entrada. Tila mga bantay.

Pakibisita na lamang po. Ang ganda laang. Ubod! :))

Pope blames devil for Church divisions, scandals, seeks angel's help

The prayer reads: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.”




VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The devil is alive and well and working overtime to undermine the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis says.

In fact, the pope is so convinced that Satan is to blame for the sexual abuse crisis and deep divisions racking the Church that he has asked Catholics around the world to recite a special prayer every day in October to try to beat him back.

“(The Church must be) saved from the attacks of the malign one, the great accuser and at the same time be made ever more aware of its guilt, its mistakes, and abuses committed in the present and the past,” Francis said in a message on Sept. 29.

Since he was elected in 2013, Francis has made clear that he believes the devil to be real. In a document in April on holiness in the modern world, Francis mentioned the devil more than a dozen times.

“We should not think of the devil as a myth, a representation, a symbol, a figure of speech or an idea. This mistake would lead us to let down our guard, to grow careless and end up more vulnerable,” he wrote in the document.

The Church has recently been hit by one sexual abuse scandal after another, from Germany, to the United States, to Chile. At the same time, a deepening polarization between conservatives and liberals in the Church has played out on social media.

Francis’ use of the term “the great accuser” to describe Satan hit a raw nerve with one of the pope’s harshest conservative critics, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the Vatican’s former ambassador to Washington.

CHURCH DIVISIONS

In an 11-page statement published on Aug. 26, Viganò launched an unprecedented broadside by a Church insider against the pope and a long list of Vatican and U.S. Church officials.

He accused Francis of knowing about sexual misconduct by a former U.S. cardinal with male adult seminarians but not doing anything about it.


Viganò, concluding that his former boss had singled him out as the devil in disguise, complained in his next statement that Francis “compared me to the great accuser, Satan, who sows scandal and division in the Church, though without ever uttering my name”.

On Sunday, a top Vatican official issued a scathing open letter accusing Viganò of mounting a “political frame job devoid of real foundation” and contesting his accusations against the pope point by point.

Francis is so convinced that Satan is ultimately to blame for both the sexual abuse scandals and the divisions within the Church that he has enlisted the aid of spiritual big gun - St. Michael the Archangel. Michael is mentioned several times in the Bible as the leader of the angels who ousted Lucifer, the fallen angel, from paradise.

Catholics are being asked to recite the rosary daily in October and conclude it with a prayer to St. Michael that was said after Mass until 1964 but then fell into disuse.

The prayer reads:

“St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.” - Reuters

‘Red October’ Duterte ouster plot bared, LP Tindig Pilipinas in conspiracy


Nipped in the bud AFP deputy chief of staff for operations on internal security operations (ISO) Brig. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. reveals ouster plot.

LP, Tindig Pilipinas in conspiracy

Tindig Pilipinas is the main group that had also tried to occupy the Senate where Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV has been hiding
President Rodrigo Duterte’s timely announcement of a brewing collusion between the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and yellow groups allied with the Liberal Party (LP) for an ouster plot against the President preempted what should have been an attempt for another power grab called plan “Aklasan” (revolt).
A senior official of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) yesterday confirmed information about an alliance between the CPP and Tindig Pilipinas–an umbrella organization of groups identified with the LP and even the camp of Vice President Leni Robredo to oust President Duterte.
Tindig Pilipinas is the main group that had also tried to occupy the Senate where Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV has been hiding due to fears of being arrested as a result of Proclamation 572 that revoked the amnesty that former President Benigno Aquino granted to him.
Some members of the clergy under the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) were also part of the connivance.
Brig. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr., AFP deputy chief of staff for operations on internal security operations (ISO), said the plot was nipped in the bud by Duterte’s public announcement of the plot.
Parlade revealed, however, that the oust-Duterte movement is hatching another plot – this time on 11 October under the code “Red October.”
Initially, Parlade said the oust-Duterte plot was supposed to be hatched last 21 September – the anniversary of martial law declaration, under the plan “Aklasan.”
Parlade added after hearing the President’s announcement that he was aware of the plot and after learning that CPP founding chair Jose Maria Sison was the “conductor,” the groups broke away from the alliance.
“This is based on documents and laptops we recovered from ranking communist leaders arrested in Mindanao and in Quezon during the past months,” Parlade said.
“They (Tindig Pilipinas) have an alliance with the Movement Against Tyranny for the “Aklasan” – the campaign to oust President Duterte. They are aligned with the opposition Liberal Party and the camp of Vice President Robredo then (Sen. Antonio) Trillanes, actually Magdalo,” Parlade said.
Some members of the clergy under the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) were also part of the connivance
Satur part of conspiracy
AFP insiders alleged that instead of CPP chairman Jose Maria Sison, the Tindig Pilipinas-led plotters communicated with former Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo and National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) peace panel consultant Rey Casambre.
Parlade said among the groups in the ouster plot aside from Tindig Pilipinas are the Movement Against Tyranny and the rightist Magdalo Group. The plan was for the holding of massive protest rallies on the anniversary of the martial law declaration that apparently failed.
A thin crowd attended the anti-government rallies held on the anniversary of former President Ferdinand Marcos’ martial law declaration. It dispersed early due to heavy rains.
The oust-Duterte plot was supposed to be hatched last 21 September–the anniversary of martial law declaration, under the plan “Aklasan.”
Parlade’s pronouncements also confirmed a Daily Tribune report quoting former Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile as saying there was an “orchestrated” effort to destabilize the Duterte administration riding on the rising inflation rate and unstable supply and prices of rice.
JPE confirmed
Former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile
Enrile told the Daily Tribune he was seeing similar groups that forced the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos out of power as behind the anti-Duterte plot.
Parlade said “Tindig” movers, however, supposedly backpedaled after the AFP confronted its officials and informed the group that Sison was the brains behind the oust-Duterte plot.
“The AFP confronted these groups…they lied low and vowed they will not ally with the communist. That was the good result. ‘Tindig’ broke away from the alliance,” Parlade said.
On the “Red October” plot, Parlade added Sison remains as the “conductor” of the oust-Duterte campaign.
“The plan will always be there. It’s Joma (Sison’s nickname) who is orchestrating. They were not successful last 21 September but there will still be a plan this coming October, they call it “Red October” – the international celebration of communism, Marxism,” Parlade said.

SC affirms: Marinduque governor to face trial for P5M fertilizer fund scam


Gov. Carmencita O. Reyes

The Supreme Court (SC) has affirmed that there was probable cause to put Marinduque Governor Carmencita Reyes on trial for the alleged misuse of P5 million in fertilizer funds.
In a recent 11-page decision, the SC 2nd Division denied Reyes’s petition questioning the Sandiganbayan’s February 29, 2012 resolution that upheld the validity of the graft and technical malversation charges filed against her.
The case arose from the province’s purchase of a hammermill, a shredding machine, a pelletizer, and a brush chipper in 2004 without the benefit of public bidding and contrary to the purpose of the fund to buy fertilizer.
The SC said Reyes’s request letter and purchase request for the heavy equipment were “enough to engender a well-founded belief that the crime charged may have been committed by Reyes.”
This meant Reyes would have to defend herself after the case finally reaches the trial stage.
The SC also rejected Reyes’s claim that the Ombudsman’s fertilizer fund scam investigations were based on the Senate Blue Ribbon committee report that would have been considered hearsay.
The decision was penned by Associate Justice Andres Reyes Jr. - Abogado.com.ph

Senate Committee on Justice approves Judges-at-Large bill


The Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights, through its Chairman Sen. Richard Gordon, has recently passed the legislative proposals to create new positions for Judges-At-Large.

In a public hearing by the said Senate Committee, Senate Bill Nos. 1681, 1691 and 2002, proposing the creation of Judges-At-Large, were given the approval to undergo their second reading in the Senate Plenary. With this latest development, the Judges-At-Large bill advances to becoming a new law that will definitely benefit every Filipino who seeks legal remedies from the courts. Senate Bill No. 1681 was sponsored by Sen. Sonny Angara while Senate Bill Nos. 1691 and 2002 were filed by Senators Win Gatchalian and Gordon, respectively.

Cong. Lord Allan Velasco, the original proponent of the measure, was elated to hear about the passage of the measure.  For their support and effort, Cong. Velasco expressed his gratitude to his counterpart legislators in the Senate, Senators Gordon, Gatchalian and Angara. 

Marinduque Representative Lord Allan Velasco

“We have to improve the image of the Judiciary in this country. With the creation of additional items for Judges-At-Large, heavily-burdened court dockets will be declogged and we can expect an increase in disposition rates of pending cases." said Velasco. "With this measure, we go beyond the textbooks and bring into reality the constitutional principle of speedy administration of justice. Once implemented, Filipinos will grow in faith and confidence in our judicial bodies once again,” he added.
