PRIVILEGE SPEECH

REP. PASTOR M. ALCOVER JR.
ANAD Partylist Representative
August 17, 2009

PERVADING INJUSTICE AND INEQUALITY

MR. SPEAKER; HONORED COLLEAGUES IN THIS HOUSE OF THE PEOPLE’S REPRESENTATIVES; FRIENDS; PATRIOTIC FILIPINOS WHO CHERISH OUR FREEDOM AND VALUE OUR DEMOCRACY:

I RISE BEFORE THE MEMBERS OF THIS AUGUST CHAMBER ON A QUESTION OF PERSONAL AND COLLECTIVE PRIVILEGE TO POINT OUT AND CALL ON THIS AUGUST CHAMBER TO IMMEDIATELY RESPOND IN THE NAME OF JUSTICE, FAIRNESS, AND EQUALITY FOR ALL FILIPINOS.

A CONSTITUTIONAL BODY TASKED TO PROVIDE EQUAL PROTECTION TO ITS PEOPLE MUST SHOW, TO ALL AND SUNDRY, THAT INDEED IT HAS NO QUALMS AND BIASES FOR ANY PARTICULAR INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP IN THE EXECUTION OF ITS MANDATE. THIS REPRESENTATION STRONGLY BELIEVES THAT JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS MUST BE EQUITABLY SERVED TO ALL FILIPINOS WITHOUT RESERVATION AND CLASS DIMINUTION.

BUT SUCH IS NOT THE CASE WITH THE COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS, A BODY CREATED AND MANDATED BY THE CONSTITUTION TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS, ESPECIALLY THE RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY, AND PROPERTY.

I AM NOT REFERRING TO THE COMMISSION AS A WHOLE, MR. SPEAKER. BUT WHAT WORRIES ME, MR. SPEAKER, IS THE SEEMING BIASED AND PREJUDICED POSTURINGS OF THE COMMISSION’S CHAIRPERSON LEILA DE LIMA WHO, WITHOUT FEAR, ISSUE STATEMENTS THAT TENDS TO COMPROMISE THE COMMISSION’S POSITION EVEN WHEN FORMAL INVESTIGATIONS AND HEARINGS ARE STILL TO BE HELD OR ARE IN THE INITIAL STAGE YET.

MEMBERS OF THIS AUGUST CHAMBER, HER PENCHANT FOR THIS TYPE OF BRAGGADOCIO DEFINITELY WOULD MEAN AND EASILY CONSTRUED AS PROVIDING SOME SORT OF PROTECTION TO TERRORISTS AND OTHER CRIMINAL ELEMENTS RATHER THAN EXTENDING ITS QUASI-JUDICIAL’S PROTECTIVE MANTLE ON BOTH THE VICTIM AND THE SUSPECT.

MELISSA ROXAS’ ALLEGED ABUDCTION AND TORTURE IS THE MOST GLARING AND MOST RECENT CASE THAT I AM REFERRING TO MR. SPEAKER. THE JULY 25 PRESS CONFERENCE CALLED, BY THIS REPRESENTATION TOGETHER WITH REPRESENTATIVE JOVITO PALPARAN OF BANTAY PARTYLIST, WAS TO INFORM THE FILIPINO PEOPLE THAT WE ARE IN RECEIPT OF A PACKAGE, SENT THROUGH L-B-C FROM AN ACTIVE N-P-A MEMBER, CONTAINING A LETTER AND SAYING, AMONG OTHERS, IT WAS ONLY THROUGH NEWS REPORTS WHEN SHE KNEWTHAT KA AYA, HER COMRADE IN ARMS IN AURORA PROVINCE, WAS MELISSA ROXAS, IN REAL LIFE.

ALSO IN THE SAME LETTER, THE SENDER TOLD ME THAT IT WAS THE MAOIST COMMUNIST N-P-A WHO ABDUCTED MELISSA AFTER THEY GOT WIND OF THE LATTER’S PLAN TO RETURN TO FOLDS OF THE LAW AS SHE CANNOT ENDURE THE SUFFERINGS AND HARDSHIPS OF LIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS, WHICH SHE WASN’T USED TO.

TO SUPPORT HER CLAIM, A VIDEO CD WAS INCLUDED IN THE SAME PACKAGE. THE VIDEO CD SHOWED THAT MELISSA ROXAS, WHOM SHE KNEW AS KA AYA, ATE, SLEPT, TRAINED AND WORKED WITH THEM IN THE RUGGED MOUNTAINS OF AURORA PROVINCE. IN SHORT, THE SENDER CLAIMED THAT MELISSA IS NOT AND HAS NEVER BEEN AN ORDINARY ACTIVIST OR A WRITER, AS SHE CLAIMED TO BE, BUT A REGULAR MEMBER OF THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST NEW PEOPLE’S ARMY OPERATING IN AURORA.

DURING THE PRESSCON, WE DID NOT MAKE ANY CONCLUSION EXCEPT EXPRESSING MY OWN VIEWS BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE INSIDE THE MAOIST-COMMUNIST ORGANIZATIONS FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS.  IT WAS UP TO THE MEDIA PERSONALITIES PRESENT, TO DRAW UP THEIR RESPECTIVE CONCLUSION.

MR. SPEAKER, THIS REPRESENTATION WILL SHOW TO ALL OF THE DISTINGUISHED MEMBERS OF THIS AUGUST CHAMBER, THE VERY SAME UNEDITED COPY OF VIDEO WHAT WE RECEIVED AND SHOWN DURING THE JULY 25 PRESS CONFERENCE AT THE QUEZON MEMORIAL CIRCLE, EXCEPT FOR A FEW STILL-FRAMES INSERTED TO EMPHASIZE MELISSA’S FACE AND MOVEMENTS. YOU CAN DRAW YOUR OWN RESPECTIVE CONCLUSION WHETHER MELISSA WAS JUST A SIMPLE ACTIVIST AND WRITER; OR A MEMBER OF THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A. . . . . . . . . TO VIDEO SHOWING. . . . ./.

DURING ANOTHER PRESS CONFERENCE WE HAD LAST JULY 31, 2009 IN QUEZON CITY. THE SAME MATERIAL, THAT YOU HAVE JUST SEEN, WAS CORROBORATED BY 2 FORMER N-P-A MEMBERS THEN OPERATING IN AURORA PROVINCE THEN BUT ARE NOW WITH THE GOVERNMENT, NAMELY: KA JIGS AND KA MARTIN, WHOSE REAL NAMES I CANNOT DIVULGE FOR SECURITY REASONS. THE TWO POSITIVELY IDENTIFIED MELISSA ROXAS AS THE VERY SAME KA AYA THAT WAS WITH THEM IN THE MOUNTAINS OF AURORA.

WITH THIS IN HAND, MR. SPEAKER, THE CREDIBILITY AND TRUTHFULNESS OF MELISSA’S SWORN STATEMENT BEFORE THE C-H-R AND THE COURTS OF LAW IS NOW BEING ATTACKED. THIS REPRESENTATION BELIEVES THAT MELISSA’S REPEATED DENIAL OF HER MEMBERSHIP IN THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A ORGANIZATION IS NOW SERIOUSLY QUESTIONED. AS SUCH, THE VERACITY OF HER ENTIRE SWORN STATEMENT ALLEGING ABDUCTION AND TORTURE, AMONG OTHERS, IS HIGHLY SUSPECT AND CLOUDED WITH SERIOUS DOUBTS; AND THUS MUST BE SUBJECTED TO FURTHER SCRUTINY AND TREATED WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.

MORE SO, IS OUR BELIEF THAT MELISSA IS BEING USED BY THE MAOIST COMMUNIST CPP-NPA-NDF, ITS SURROGATE SECTORAL FRONT AND PSEUDO PARTYLIST ORGANIZATIONS, WITH CONG. SATURNINO OCAMPO IN THE DIRECTORIAL CHAIR, TO ADVANCE THEIR HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT CURRENTLY HEADED BY PRESIDENT GLORIA MACAPAGAL-ARROYO.

MELISSA’S TRIP BACK TO THE U.S. LAST JULY 31CONFIRMED OUR INFORMATION THAT DURING THE PRESIDENT U.S VISIT, MELISSA WILL BE THE CENTERPIECE OF BAYAN-USA’S ANTI-P-G-M-A PROTEST IN WASHINGTON D.C.. WHILE THERE, SHE DID NOT CAUSE ANY STIR NOR WAS SHE MADE THE FOCAL POINT OF THE “HATE PRESIDENT G-M-A” PROTESTS. OUR BELIEF IS THAT THOUGH IT WAS PART OF A DELIBERATE AND SKILLFULLY CALCULATED GRAND PLAN, IT WENT TO NAUGHT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE TIMELY DISCLOSURE THAT WE MADE BORNE OUT OF OUR COURAGE AND PATRIOTIC ZEAL.

HOWEVER AND IN HER IN REACTION, C-H-R CHAIR DE LIMA IMMEDIATELY BRUSHED ASIDE MELISSA’S ALLEGED MEMBERSHIP WITH THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A SAYING, QUOTED IN SEVERAL NEWS REPORTS, AND I QUOTE  – – -“I WISH TO STRESS THAT THE ISSUE BEFORE THE C-H-R IS THE ALLEGED ABDUCTION AND TORTURE (OF ROXAS) AND NOT HER ALLEGED AFFILIATION. . . . . .” (PAGE 2, PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER, DATED JULY 27).

MR. SPEAKER, THE STATEMENT SHE MADE OPENLY TO MEDIA, LOUDLY AND WITH CLARITY, IS ENOUGH PROOF OF C-H-R CHAIR DE LIMA’S PREJUDGEMENT OF MELISSA’S CASE, NOTWITHSTANDING THE FACT THAT IT IS STILL SUBJECT TO SEVERAL HEARINGS BY THE COMMISSION.

INDEED A DELIBERATE, PREMATURE, GROSSLY IRRESPONSIBLE AND PREJUDICIAL STATEMENT BY THE CHAIR OF A CONSTITUTIONAL BODY WHOM MANY BELIEVED SHOULD HAVE STOOD HER GROUND TO PRESERVE FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, THE INTEGRITY AND DIGNITY OF THE OFFICE BUT INSTEAD SHE HAS SOWN DISGRACE TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICE SHE LEADS.

DESPITE WITH WHAT SHE SAID TO MEDIA, WE WERE SUMMONED TO ATTEND C-H-R’S INVESTIGATION AND HEARING ON JULY 27 T0 SHED LIGHT ON THE DISCLOSURES WE MADE DURING THE PRESS CONFERENCE AND FOR US TO SUBMIT THE VCD DISC TO THE COMMISSION. WHAT TRANSPIRED DURING THE HEARING WAS INDEED HORRIBLE WITH THE TRAPPINGS OF ARROGANCE AND ASTUTENESS OF THE C-H-R CHAIRPERSON.

MR. SPEAKER, THIS HAPPENED WHEN THIS REPRESENTATION ASKED CHAIR DE LIMA IF I COULD ASK SOME CLARIFICATORY QUESTIONS WHICH I DEEMED RELEVANT TO THE INVESTIGATION. HER RESPONSE WAS THAT THOSE INVITED OR SUMMONED HAVE NO RIGHT TO QUESTION THE C-H-R AND THAT IT IS ONLY THE C-H-R WHO CAN QUESTION THOSE SUMMONED OR INVITED, OR TO THAT EFFECT. THIS IS AN EXPRESSION OF HER SHEER ARROGANCE WITH THE INTENTION OF BULLYING AND TO PILLORY US DURING THE HEARING.

WHEN I INSISTED AND ASKED HER WHETHER SHE IS RELATED OR NOT TO JULIET DE LIMA, THE WIFE OF MAOIST MESSIAH JOSE MA. SISON, FOUNDING CHAIR AND CURRENTLY THE TOP HONCHO OF THE MAOIST COMMUNIST CPP-NPA-NDF, SHE DID NOT ANSWER MY QUERRY BUT INSTEAD GAVE CRITICAL STATEMENTS EVEN INSINUATING THAT OUR PARTYLIST ORGANIZATION IS HIGHLY DUBIOUS AND SUSPECT; AND IF INDEED THERE IS A RELATION BETWEEN THEM, “DOES THAT MAKE ME A COMMUNIST TOO” OR TO THAT EFFECT.

TO MY SURPRISE ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, SHE ISSUED A QUICK AND CATEGORICAL REPLY TO THE SAME QUESTION POSED BY MEDIA MEN, ADMITTING HER RELATIONSHIP WITH JULIET DE LIMA. THIS WAS PUBLISHED IN SEVERAL NEWSPAPERS, THE FOLLOWING DAY. A COMPLETE TURN AROUND FROM  THE POSTURINGS SHE MADE, A DAY BEFORE.

WE ARE ALL AWARE THAT IN PAST INCIDENCES, HER CHARACTER, WHICH I WOULD RATHER DESCRIBE AS DELIBERATE YET CALCULATED INDISCRETIONS, HAVE ALREADY CASTED DOUBTS AND SUSPICION ON THE FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE THAT THE COMMISSION SHALL HAND DOWN ON ALL OF US, FILIPINOS, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO’S RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED.

THE C-H-R SHALL MOVE AND CONDUCT ITSELF NOT AGAINST GOVERNMENT AND ITS INSTRUMENTALITIES ALONE BUT ALSO AGAINST ALL SECTORS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO BRUTALLY AND MALICIOUSLY DEPRIVED EACH AND EVERY FILIPINO HIS WELL DESERVED AND CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED RIGHTS OF LIFE, LIBERTY, AND PROPERTY. THESE ARE ALL ENSHRINED IN OUR COUNTRY’S FUNDAMENTAL LAW.

I MUST ADMIT THAT I AM NOT A LAWYER BUT MY CONSCIENCE SPEAKS OUT LOUD THAT THE C-H-R IS MANDATED TO INVESTIGATE THOSE RESPONSIBLE IN THE AMBUSH-KILLING OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS IN TOBOSO, NEGROS ORIENTAL WHICH THE MAOIST COMMUNIST NDF SPOKESMAN FRANK FERNANDEZ ADMITTED WAS THE HANDIWORK OF THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A’S IN THE AREA AND ASKED APOLOGY FROM THE FAMILY OF THE VICTIMS; THE TREACHEROUS KILLING IN APRIL 5, 2004 OF ATTY/DR. RICARDO NEPOMUCENO OF OAS, ALBAY, AND HIS TWO CIVILIAN COMPANIONS: PANFILO BELOCURA AND RICHARD LLUPAR, ALL FROM BICOL REGION, THE VERY SAME REGION WHERE CHAIR DE LIMA HAILS FROM, WHICH THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A ADMITTED RESPONSIBILITY. BUT UNTIL TODAY THEY HAVEN’T DONE SO.

WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER INCIDENTS INVOLVING SUMMARY KILLINGS INITIATED AND ADMITTED BY THE MAOIST COMMUNIST N-P-A. TO NAME A FEW, IT IS WORTH MENTIONING THE COLD-BLOODED MURDER OF EVELYN PITAO, A FORMER N-P-A AMAZON WHO HAD ALREADY RETURNED TO THE FOLDS OF THE LAW YET WAS MADE TO SUFFER AS SHE WAS MURDERED BY THE TERRORIST’S MEDARDO ARCE COMMAND TO SEND A STRONG MESSAGE TO HER BROTHER – LEONCIO PITAO, A.K.A PARAGO TO SETTLE AND REMIT THE HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF PESOS IN REVOLUTIONARY TAXES EXTORTED FROM BUSINESSES AND INNOCENT CIVILIANS IN REGIONS 11 AND 12 TO THE MAOIST COMMUNIST’S SOUTHERN MINDANAO REGIONAL PARTY COMMITTEE.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE MURDERED  AND UNCEREMONIOUSLY BURIED IN INOPACAN, SOUTHERN LEYTE; THE INFAMOUS DIGOS  MASSACRE IN DIGOS, DAVAO DEL SUR; THOSE MENTIONED IN THE BOOK OF FRANCES “BOBBY” GARCIA WHO WERE KILLED DURING THE MASS PURGES AS A RESULT OF OPLANS KADENA DE AMOR, KAMPANYANG AHOS, MISSING LINK, AND ZOMBIES? MY SOURCES IN THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE TOLD ME THAT BAYAN MUNA CONG. SATUR OCAMPO IS ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL PERSONALITIES RESPONSIBLE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE MASS PURGES IN THE LATE 80’S.

MR. SPEAKER, THESE ARE ONLY BUT A FEW OF THE MORE THAN TENS OF THOUSANDS OF FILIPINO LIVES SNAPPED BY THE MAOIST COMMUNIST-TERRORIST N-P-A IN THE NAME OF MAOIST COMMUNIST REVOLUTION THAT THE COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS INTENTIONALLY DID NOT AND HAS NEVER INVESTIGATED BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEF THAT THOSE WHO ARE OPERATING OUTSIDE OF THE LAW ARE NOT ANSWERABLE TO OUR LAWS ESPECIALLY INTERNATIONAL COVENANTS ON THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. CLEARLY, THE C-H-R HAS INTENTIONALLY RENEGED FROM ITS CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATE AND TASK.

MR. SPEAKER, I THEREFORE WOULD LIKE TO POSE THIS QUESTION, – – ARE CRIMINAL ELEMENTS AND THOSE IN THE MAOIST COMMUNIST REVOLUTION LEGALLY BEYOND THE REACH OF OUR LAWS? LET ME REMIND EVERYONE THAT THESE ARE THE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO SHOUT AND CRY “HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS” AS THEY IMMEDIATELY SEEK SHELTER AND REFUGE ON OUR LAWS AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL BODIES FOR THEIR COMFORT AND COVENIENCE WHILE CONTINUALLY WAGING UNABATED MURDERS OF INNOCENT FILIPINOS AND REMAINING SCOT-FREE SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE REFUSAL BY THE C-H-R TO DIP ITS FINGERS INTO IT IN ORDER TO RESOLVE THEIR CULPABILITY OR OTHERWISE!

SORDID IS THE APPROPRIATE TERM FOR ALL OF THE ACTUATIONS DISPLAYED AND MADE C-H-R CHAIR LEILA DE LIMA WHO HAS SWORN TO PROTECT EACH AND EVERY FILIPINO’S RIGHTS REGARDLESS OF RACE, COLOR OR CREED.

MR. SPEAKER, ARE WE CONTENTED AND COMFORTABLE WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY TODAY WHEN THE AGENCY, CREATED AND MANDATED BY OUR CONSTITUTION TO PROVIDE EQUAL PROTECTION TO EVERY FILIPINO, NOW SEEMS HELL-BENT IN PURSUING A CAUSE, WHICH THIS REPRESENTATION FIRMLY BELIEVES, IS IN SUPPORT OF THOSE WHO SEEK THE DESTRUCTION AND FALL OF OUR FREE AND DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT.

MR. SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THIS AUGUST CHAMBER, I FIND IT COMPELLING AND INCUMBENT ON MY PART TO CALL ON ALL MEMBERS OF THIS HOUSE, THROUGH ANY AND ALL APPROPRIATE COMMITTEE, TO INVESTIGATE, IN AID OF LEGISLATION, C-H-R CHAIRPERSON LEILA DE LIMA FOR CONDUCT PREJUDICIAL TO THE ENDS OF JUSTICE, EQUALITY, AND FOR HER PERCEIVED BIASES THAT ARE ALL UNCALLED FOR ESPECIALLY COMING FROM A SUPPOSEDLY RESPONSIBLE HEAD OF A CONSTITUTIONAL AND QUASI-JUDICIAL BODY MANDATED TO EXTEND EQUAL PROTECTION AND JUSTICE TO ALL FILIPINO WHOSE RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED.

ALSO, THIS REPRESENTATION FINDS IT APPROPRIATE THAT THIS AUGUST CHAMBER INVESTIGATE, IN AID OF LEGISLATION, MELISSA ROXAS TO SHED LIGHT ON HER ALLEGATIONS IN HER SWORN STATEMENT AS AGAINST THE MATERIALS THAT WE RECEIVED FROM AN N-P-A MEMBER IN AURORA PROVINCE; AND TO INVESTIGATE, IN AID OF LEGISLATION, BAYAN SECRETARY GENERAL RENATO REYES, BAYAN MUNA CONG. SATUR OCAMPO, GABRIELA’S LIZA MAZA, AND OTHER PERSONALITIES RESPONSIBLE IN THE CONCEPTUALIZATION, IMPLEMENTATION, AND FACILITATION OF A MASSIVE HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST GOVERNMENT WITH MELISSA ROXAS, IN THE FOREFRONT AND CENTERPIECE.

FINALLY, MR. SPEAKER, WITH THE MAOIST COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE PHILIPPINES TAGGED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AS A FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION; THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC FRONT (N-D-F) WORKING AS THE POLITICAL ARM OF THE CPP, AND BAYAN-USA, AN ORGANIZATION UNDER THE N-D-F INTERNATIONAL, IN THE UNITED STATES; THIS REPRESENTATION WOULD ADDRESS THIS CALL TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, THROUGH THEIR EMBASSY HERE IN MANILA, TO INVESTIGATE BAYAN-USA AS IT IS ONE OF MAIN ORGANS OF THE MAOIST COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE PHILIPPINES – A FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION OPERATING WITHIN THEIR COUNTRY. I DON’T SEE ANY LOGIC OR REASON WHY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT SHOULD ALLOW A SURROGATE OF A FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION TO OPENLY OPERATE WITHIN THEIR TERRITORY.

MR. SPEAKER, THIS CALLS FOR A DECISIVE ACT ON THE PART OF CONGRESS CONSIDERING THE ALLEGATION THAT SOMEHOW SOME QUARTERS, IN THE PHILIPPINE COMMUNITY AND PUBLIC SECTOR, ARE SEEMINGLY MANIPULATED  AND USED AS A TOOL FOR BLACK PROPAGANDA BY GROUPS SEEKING THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY’S DEMOCRATIC AND FREE WELL-BEING.

MR. SPEAKER, ALONG THIS LINE  AND THINKING ALOUD, I WOULD DARE SAY THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY AND SERIOUSLY STUDYING THE POSSIBILITY OF FILING AN IMPEACHMENT COMPLAINT AGAINST C-H-R CHAIR LEILA DE LIMA IN ORDER TO STRENGHTEN OUR GOVERNMENT AGAINST ALL THOSE,  WHO LIKE TERMITES, WANTED TO DESTROY THE VERY FIBERS OF OUR FREE AND DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY AND GOVERNMENT.

IS THIS THE PRICE THAT EACH AND EVERY FILIPINO MUST PAY IN EXCHANGE FOR THE FREEDOMS AND DEMOCRATIC IDEALS THAT WE SAVOR TODAY?

DEFINITELY, SOMEONE MUST HAVE TO BEAR THE BURDEN AND PAY THE PRICE. LET THE AXE FALL WHERE IT SHOULD. HOWEVER, THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS FOR ALL OF THESE. THE WHEELS AND PRIMACY OF JUSTICE MUST CONTINUOUSLY TURN IN FURTHERANCE OF THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM THAT WE INCESSANTLY STRIVE TO PROTECT AND SERVE.

MABUHAY ANG INANG BAYAN!

MABUHAY ANG TUNAY NA DIWA NG DEMOKRASYA!

THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER.
