According to reports, Jocelyn “Joc-Joc” Bolante, former Agriculture undersecretary, the alleged mastermind or dummy in the multi-million-peso fertilizer fund scam worth P728 million [allocated for poor farmers but were allegedly diverted to the 2004 presidential campaign kitty of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo], is already on the way to the Philippines. Bolante is expected to arrive Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal I Tuesday evening from Nagoya.
Joc Joc Bolante has a pending arrest warrant issued on 2005 by the Philippine Senate.
The questions now are:
- Will the government of Gloria Arroyo and the concerned security personnel provide Joc Joc Bolante the so-called VIP treatment given to Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada, the whistle-blower of NBN-ZTE deal, or, will he receive the real VIP treatment?
- Will Bolante maintain his silence and refuse to “tell all” like Romulo Neri or will he be like Rodolfo Lozada?
Regardless of how will Gloria, the authorities and the politicians handle Bolante when he arrived and whatever actions he will do next, his story is definitely an addition to one of the chapters of the saga of the educated opportunist greedy guys, the “i will get away with it” bastards, the highway robbers, the corrupt pinoy politicians and government officials, and the Judas Iscariot-ish type of individuals who sold their souls for 30 pieces of silver.
*** Will he do what Judas Iscariot did to himself after Christ was arrested? Oh well…let me just say these: he is not Japanese. his citizenship is “typical pinoy politician and government official”. it is called…. NO SHAME and NO CONSCIENCE!
