Lawmaker denies accusing Aquino of bribery

Tuesday, January 17, 2012
REPRESENTATIVE Pastor Alcover Jr. of the Anad party-list group denied accusing President Benigno Aquino III of bribing the 188 lawmakers who signed the impeachment complaint against Chief Justice Renato Corona.
In a December 20 Sun.Star Cebu report – Did pro-Corona impeachment legislators get bonuses from Malacañang? – Alcover was quoted as saying: “Gidawat kuno nila kay maayo nalang kuno ipamasko sa ilang constituents. Pagka-bagag nawong mga tawhana (They said they accepted it because they want to give Christmas presents to their constituents. They’re shameless).”
Alcover was pertaining to the alleged P1-million bribe offered by Aquino to each of the 188 House members. Other Cebuano lawmakers who signed the impeachment complaint denied the supposed claim of Alcover.
In a privilege speech Monday, Alcover said the Sun.Star Cebu report was “instantly played up by media in Manila” and his colleagues were quick to react without “checking the facts” and “extending a simple courtesy of calling me up to hear my side.”
Alcover explained that the Sun.Star Cebu report carried the same statements he made in an earlier radio interview with Elias Baquero in the program “Yagyagan” over DYDD, Cebu City.
Ike Durano, station manager of DYRF, supposedly “inflamed” an already “tenuous situation” when he called up and interviewed Bayan Muna Representative Neri Colmenares, one of the impeachment prosecutors, Alcover said.
“Claiming balanced and fair reportage, Durano called me up and took my side on the issue. Practically, in my interview with Durano, I just repeated the very same things that I’ve said during Elias Baquero’s radio program. Immediately after our interview, Durano ranted with expletives and innuendoes accusing me of things I never committed nor possessed in my lifetime,” Alcover said.
“In all that I’ve said in these interviews, there was no mention, whatsoever, nor even finger pointing and accusing President Aquino III of bribing the 188 congressmen,” he said.
Alcover dared House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales, Representatives Ben Evardone (Eastern Samar), Roger Espina (Biliran), Rene Relampagos (Bohol), and Cesar Sarmiento (Catanduanes) to make good of their threat to have him investigated by the House Committee on Ethics where he may face possible expulsion from the body.
Evardone’s position to have Alcover investigated for “putting Congress, as an institution, and my colleagues in a bad light” have earlier gathered support from several House members and leaders. (Kathrina Alvarez/Sunnex)
