Jocelyn “Joc-Joc” Bolante

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!

    as is said often “abangan ang susunod na kabanata”, and as any filipino saga, we very well know kung ano ang susunod na kabanata. iisang klase lang naman silang lahat. may mga mapapanood na naman tayong clowns in the senate.

    Update from ABS-CBN News Online: (as of 10/28/2008 12:24 PM)

    Earlier, Bolante reportedly failed to board Northwest Airlines flight 71 to Nagoya, Japan en route to Manila after he was ordered deported by the US.

    The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), however, said Bolante, wanted by the Philippine Senate for repeatedly ignoring its summons to explain his alleged involvement in the malversation of P728 million in fertilizer funds, is still in their custody. ICE did not elaborate.

    According to Don Tagala, ABS-CBN North America News Bureau correspondent, they did not see Bolante on the Northwest flight 71 bound for Nagoya from Detroit as of 4:05 a.m. Manila time.

    Gail Montenegro of the US ICE, meanwhile, told ABS-CBN new bureau chief Ging Reyes in an e-mail that Bolante “remains in the custody of the immigration and customs department.

    “Mr. Jocelyn Bolante remains in the custody of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) pending his removal from the United States,” Montenegro said.

    She, however, did not say anything about Bolante’s present location.

    Montenegro added that Bolante has been accorded due process and is awaiting a final order for deportation from a federal immigration judge.

    I’ll write for you the latest, myepinoy.

    Bolante was finally able to make it to Manila last night. He arrived on board NW 71 at NAIA Terminal 1 after being deported by the US Government which denied his request for asylum.

    He was turned over by two US agents to the NBI agents, who in turn turned him over to the Senate security personnel in the Customs area. After clearing immigration, he boarded an airport ambulance that took him to St Luke’s Medical Center for a medical check up and treatment due to the mental and physical stress and ailments caused by his detention in the US.

    Yes, I saw that on TV. The way I see it, he was given some kind of VIP treatment (my question no.1). this leaves me to my last question, will he do a Neri or a Lozada.

    I have noticed that he has grown old, tired and he appears like one of the many sick and tired returning OFWs.

    Pag minsan totoo ang kasabihan, kapag tumakbo ka ng matulin, kung ikaw ay matinik, malalim. And sometimes, you can not equate money with life.

    From TFC, ANC news: marami daw look alike passengers na kasabay si bolante. Ilang pasyente sa St. Lukes umaangal dahil sa VIP treatment ka bolante.
