Who's sowing confusion in Marinduque?


Certain facts contained in  Dionisio v. Reyes (2d Civil Case No. B215206 included the following, here's the LINK:
"Saturnino "Roy" S. Ador Dionisio and Regina O. Reyes were married in June 1997 and separated in January 2001. A status only judgment of dissolution was entered May 2002."


Dionisio is a U.S.citizen. Reyes appears to have
acquired her U.S. citizenship in 2005 as evidenced by the fact that she started using her U.S. passport in 2005.

It also clearly appears that since their
marriage was already dissolved in 2002 (or three years earlier), Reyes did not acquire dual Filipino-American citizenship by virtue of her marriage to an American citizen, but only through naturalization.

No wonder, Cong. Mandanas her self-confessed "canonical spouse", clearly stated in a personal privilege speech before Congress, thus:  "At one time she (Reyes),  acquired US citizenship...", but with another twist: "...within one year, she acquired back her Philippine citizenship under the Dual Citizen Law."
Acquiring dual citizenship by virtue of marriage to a U.S. citizen and acquiring back Philippine citizenship under the Dual Citizen Law (PA 9225), are two different things, right? 

Cong. Mandanas stood on the issue of personal privilege on February 6, 2013 regarding Atty. Regina O. Reyes, the LP Candidate for congressman of Marinduque, here's the LINK


He said, among others: “Atty. Regina O. Reyes is the candidate for Congressman under the Liberal Party, running against the incumbent to be the Representative of the Lone District of the province of Marinduque.  She is also the daughter of the incumbent governor, Carmencita Reyes, an undefeated Congresswoman... Incidentally, Atty. Regina O. Reyes is my canonical spouse, Mr. Speaker…” 

It will be recalled that Reyes in her CoC declared that she was “SINGLE”. Mandanas went on to state thus: 
Atty. Regina Reyes is a natural-born Filipino citizen of the Republic of the Philippines. At one time, she acquired US citizenship, and within one year, she acquired back her Philippine citizenship under the Dual Citizen Law... Atty. Reyes renounced her US citizenship before filing her candidacy for Congresswoman…”

But when acquiring US citizenship, one takes the oath of allegiance to the USA that clearly states one renounces all and previous allegiances to any other country, right?

            On the issue of the attorney using different years of birth in official documents like passports, birth certificates (such as 1958, 1959, 1964),  Mandanas said:

 “There were other things mentioned like age.  But whether you are 40 or 50 is not the matter of qualification.  Probably it falls under the vanity of a woman but with no bad faith..."


How's that again? And now..


'Disquaified' congressional bet in Marinduque continues campaign

by Juancho Mahusay (repost from: Philstar) April 10, 2013.

MANILA, Philippines - The daughter of Marinduque Gov. Carmencita Reyes on Monday filed a motion for reconsideration with the Comelec, seeking to reverse the poll body's earlier ruling disqualifying her from the May 13 elections. Regina Ongsiako Reyes, through her lawyer Gregorio Larrazabal, said the ruling of the Comelec's First Division was not yet final.


Larrazabal, who was a Comelec commissioner, pointed out that "the ruling is simply premised on the supposition that Reyes is not a Filipino citizen."


"The simple fact is that Regina Ongsiako Reyes is a natural-born Filipino and has never renounced nor lost her Filipino citizenship at any point in her life," Larrazabal stressed in a statement.


Larrazabal said that despite the Comelec's ruling, Reyes remains the official congressional candidate of the Liberal party in the lone district of Marinduque."There has been no let-up in her campaign sorties since she is not prohibited from doing so," the lawyer added.


Reyes said she is determined to pursue her candidacy despite the pending disqualification case, adding: "It's nothing but a harassment case intended to sow confusion among the voters in Marinduque." 


Now, who's sowing confusion?
