Citizens’ arrest led to the interception of two extra PCOS machines and election-related equipment here.

A delivery truck of Argo International Forwarders, with plate number ZJG-187, was intercepted by concerned civilians at Sitio Dapdap, Barangay (village) Agpangi here around noon yesterday (May 14). Its cargo bay yielded two Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS) machines and two units of Broadband Geographical Area Network (BGAN), an equipment used to transmit election results.

A police officer witnesses the opening of a PCOS machine box intercepted in Naval, Biliran. (Courtesy of www.biliranisland.com).

The cargo had no escort by a representative from the Commission on Elections.

The two BGAN equipment were allegedly used in the municipalities of Almeria and Kawayan, respectively, during the automated local and national elections last May 10. But both items and the PCOS machines were reportedly picked up by the truck personnel in Kawayan.

Joint affidavit

In a joint affidavit sworn by ten civilians, including those who conducted the citizens’ arrest, they stated that they were surprised by what they had bagged, since they were aware that the 166 PCOS machines used during the elections in Biliran Province, including the 11 contingency PCOS machines issued to seven municipalities except Kawayan, were already retrieved based on their inventory conducted at the Argo Warehouse in Tacloban City last May 13.

Lawyer Alvin Richard N. Japson, Biliran COMELEC Provincial Election Supervisor, was with them when they conducted the inventory.

The inventoried items were delivered to Tacloban in the afternoon of May 13, escorted by COMELEC officials, Biliran poll watchers, and police escorts as mandated by COMELEC procedures.

The affiants were Genevere M. Dacer, Ruel J. Rosales, Jenny Vi M. Auman, Marilyn D. Quijano, Flora R. Busa, Maribeth G. Jamin, Florencia G. Lorana, Romeo Almonte, Kenneth M. Lacar and Gemma V. Alba.

The attested that they initially got the word of Japson that no contingency PCOS machine was issued to Kawayan. They sought confirmation for this from Ronnie Tonalde, warehouse supervisor of Argo Forwarders, but he did not give an answer.

Argo Forwarders is the company hired by the COMELEC and SMARTMATIC to deliver and retrieve the PCOS machines.

Transport agreement

Lawyer Redentor C. Villordon, vice-mayor-elect of Naval, who represented Lakas CMD-KAMPI, said Japson had assured all parties last May 13 that the PCOS machines in Biliran had all been accounted for and turned over to the Provincial COMELEC. This assurance paved the way for the transport of the items to Tacloban.

This was affirmed by Flora R. Busa, one of the affiants, who cited her conversation with Japson in the presence of PNP Regional Director Rey Lanada.

The go-signal to transport was agreed and effected at the height of a large political rally inside the Provincial Capitol compound here last Thursday, which involved at least a thousand protesters and a crowd dispersal unit from the Philippine National Police Regional Command, who put up road blocks and barricades, restricted the movement of people, and prevented food and water from reaching the protesters for half a day.

The protesters were clamoring justice for electoral fraud allegedly committed by the Espina political dynasty. They demanded a manual recount of the votes cast, particularly for the congressional race, won by Gov. Roger Espina with the narrowest of margins over re-electionist Rep. Glenn Chong.

Alleged fraud

There are strong suspicions here that members of the Espina family here won the election by manipulating its digitalized results in their favor, probably during transmission. Local observers who have blogged their analysis in www.biliranisland.com website claim that the votes for the Espinas might have been digitally padded by as much as 10,000 votes.

They also demand a manual recount of the votes, which could also validate whether the digitalized results match with the actual number of paper ballots cast.

Some observers believe the digital manipulation of the results here were centered in Kawayan town, where former Rep. Gerardo Espina Sr. had been proclaimed as mayor, and his son, Mayor Rodulfo Espina, had been proclaimed as vice-mayor.

Denials

The accusations of fraud were denied by Gov. Roger Espina and Kawayan Mayor Rodulfo Espina in text messages sent to various recipients and shown to this writer.

But the interception of the extra PCOS machines and BGAN equipment here added fuel to the local cynics’ suspicions of electoral fraud.

Local reporters tried to reach Japson for his comment on this issue, but he could not be reached. He has reportedly changed the number of his cellular phone.

Meanwhile, COMELEC Regional Director Jose Nick Mendros has issued an official statement through a Tacloban daily newspaper dismissing the allegations of electoral fraud in Biliran, which resulted in the return of the Espina clan to key positions and the defeat of Representative Chong.

  1. HA????????????? NAUNSA NA NOON NI NGA NAA NA HINOON NAKUHANG EBIDENSYA GI-DISMISS NUON ANG CAMPLAIN OF MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD SA BILIRANNNNN… HOW COME??????? PARA WAG MAPAHIYA ANG COMELEC SA ACTIION NILA SA PAG PROCLAIM AGAD SA MGA ESPINA RYT AFTER THE POWER FAILURE?????? HMMMMM SOMETHING FISHY… IT STINKZZZZZZ….

  2. WHY IS THE COMELEC REGIONAL DIRECTOR JOSE MENDROS IN THE WAY OF GETTING BILIRANONS THEIR FREEDOM? IS HE IN THE POCKETS OF THE ESPINA OR WHAT? THE ESPINA FAMILY HAS SO MANY TENTACLES. THEY CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS IF NECESSARY JUST TO STAY IN POWER. IT IS EASY TO FIND A USEFUL IDIOT TO DO THEIR BIDDINGS. TAKE GENE CORPIN FOR EXAMPLE.

    MR. MENDROS, ARE YOU AWARE OF THE RALLY AND THE SACRIFICES OF THE BILIRANONS FOR A FEW DAYS NOW. ARE YOU AWARE OF THE PCOS MACHINES INTERCEPTED?
    ARE YOU AWARE THAT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES ARE NOT MATCHING AND NEEDS TO BE RECONCILED? HOW DARE YOU SCOFF AT THE DEMANDS OF THE BILIRANONS FOR A MANUAL RECOUNT. YOU DON’T LIVE HERE IN BILIRAN. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS LIKE TO LIVE UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE ESPINA DYNASTY. IT IS EASIER FOR YOU TO SCOFF AT US AS IF WE ARE MERE BUGS TO BE SWATTED AWAY.

    BILIRANONS, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT MR. MENDROS ACTIVITIES BEFORE ELECTION – HIS MOVES, MEETINGS, VISITORS, ETC. WE NEED TO FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL.
    WE MIGHT FIND OUT THE REAL REASON WHY HE IS IGNORING US. THE NERVE OF THIS GUY!

    BY SCOFFING AT THE ALLEGATIONS INSTEAD OF BEING INDEPENDENT AS HE IS SUPPOSED AND EXPECTED TO BE. WE CAN’T HELP BUT WONDER WHY? HE DOESN’T EVEN WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE ALLEGATIONS AND DEMANDS OF THE PEOPLE OF BILIRAN. WHAT DOES HE THINK WE WERE DOING? HAVING A PARTY?!
    DO WE LOOK LIKE WE ARE HAVING A VIGIL PARTY? DO WE LOOK LIKE WE ENJOY BEING BARRICADED BY THE POLICE, GOT SHOT, THIRST, AND STARVED IF WE DON’T BELIEVE IN SOMETHING GREATER THAN OURSELVES?

    MR MENDROS, WHY DON’T YOU VISIT BILIRAN AND HEAR US OUT? YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE YOKE OF ESPINA DYNASTY, WE ARE! YOU, AS HEAD OF COMELEC SHOULD BE FAIR AND IMPARTIAL. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? FAIR AND IMPARTIAL! WHO THE HECK ARE YOU FOR IGNORING US? WE ARE THE SUFFERING PEOPLE OF BILIRAN. DON’T BE OUT OF TOUCH. COME TO BILIRAN AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELVES OUR PLIGHT. COME DOWN FROM YOUR TURRET AND BE WITH THE PEOPLE OF BILIRAN.

    PEOPLE OF BILIRAN, IF MR. MENDROS IS AGAINST MANUAL RECOUNT OF THE VOTES, HOW ABOUT SENDING SOME BILIRANONS TO RALLY AT HIS COMELEC OFFICE? LET HIM SEE FOR HIMSELF THAT WE ARE SERIOUS AND WE WON’T GO AWAY. ALL WE ASK OF HIM IS THAT HE BE FAIR AND IMPARTIAL AND ALLOW THE MANUAL RECOUNT OF THE VOTES TO BEGIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

    FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE MR. MENDROS, DO THE RIGHT THING.
    DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE BILIRANONS. SOMEDAY, WE’LL REPAY YOU IN KIND.

    =================================

    At a press conference in Mandaluyong City, Ambassador Ernesto Maceda, former president Estrada’s campaign manager, claimed that before the elections, some people offering CF cards – supposedly programmed to make a candidate win – approached the camp of the Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).

    Maceda claimed the CF card brokers sell the programs for the PCOS machines from P30 to P50 million each.

    “There were brokers who approached us, but as to where these people came from or who they represent, I cannot yet tell right now,” Maceda said.

    JUSTICE FOR BILIRANONS

    FREEDOM FOR BILIRANONS

    GOD HELP US ALL

  19. All Biliranons
    All Blooggers
    All Freedom Fighters
    All Biliranons Abroad
    All Biliranons Youth

    In the light of more developments casting doubt on the integrity of the election results in Biliran, I call on everyone to maintain an active vigilance and participation to peaceful protests that we may need to hold to continue to put the pressure on the COMELEC to nullify the proclamation and initiate a manual recount, reconciliation of the votes and audit of the PCOS machines and BGAN.

    Exhaustive action, both on the ground and on national level, has now been undertaken, but we need to send the message to the national capital that there is an active protest among the Biliranons against the attempts to rig the election results.

    Let continue to air our protest on this site as the national capital are now looking at our blogs for more information.
    Let us intensify our protest by posting information here which may help them precipitate an affirmative action.

    God bless Biliran.

  20. Labot lang sa statistical improbability sa layog nga mga botos ni Roger ug Gerryboy sa eleksiyon, duna pay laing ebidensiya sa gi suspetsahan nga digital padding sa election results dinhi sa Biliran.

    Mahinumdom man seguro mo nga dunay mga survey dinhi sa bi.com, apil na ang mga presidentiables. Mananaw pod sa statistics ang posible nga maniobra sa resulta, nga naapil ngani paglaplap ang mga botos ni Noynoy Aquino.

    1. Sa duha ka survey sa presidentiables dinhi sa site, wa gyud to muubos ang numero ni Noynoy sa 40%. Ngani una gi pullout ang resulta dinhi, ning-abot ngani to siya ug 43%

    2. Si Villar, diha ra gyud to siya sa 20%. Wa kaayo ning-usbaw ug wa pod ning-ubos bisan sa iyang pagbisita dinhi.

    3. Si Gibo Teodoro, duna to siyay 26 percent. Apan sa dihang ning resign siya isip chairman sa Lakas, ning ubos ang iyang rating ngadto sa mga 20%. Halos patas ang % ni Gibo ug ni Villar una gi pullout and survey sa site.

    4. Si Erap, diha ra to siya sa 4%, wa muusbaw bisan sa iyang pagbisita dinhi sa kampanya.

    Ang resulta sa eleksiyon naka apektar sa statistics niining 4 ka kandidato, apan wala sa uban.

    1. Ang resulta sa Comelec nagpakita nga ningkunhod ang numero ni Noynoy gikan sa 43% sa survey ngadto sa 29% na lang sa balota. Naibanan siya ug 14%. Statistically improbable.

    2. Si Manny Villar, ning usbaw gikan sa 21% sa survey ngadto sa 34% sa aktuwal nga botos. Nadugangan siya ug 13%. Statistically improbable.

    3. Si Gibo, ningkunhod ang iyang numero gikan sa 20% sa survey ngadto sa 16% sa aktuwal nga botos. Naibanan ug 4%. Within allowable statistical errors.

    4. Si Erap, ning usbaw ang iyang numero gikan sa 4% sa survey ngadto sa 14% sa aktuwal nga botos. Dunay dugang nga 10%. Statistically improbable.

    Sa ato, irregular ang pagkadusmo sa numero ni Noynoy ug 14% ug ang paglupad sa mga numero ni Villar ug Erap, duha ka kandidato nga mao ang gidudahan nga naghatag ug panggasto sa eleksiyon sa mga Espina.

    Ang dakong pangutana karon, duna bay paper ballots ning nausbaw sa mga numero ni Villar ug Erap? O digital padding lang ni nga mga numero (walay paper ballots) nga mao ang nakabunlot tipaubos sa % votes ni Noynoy? Sama sa suspetsa nga digital padding ang ubang mga botos ni Roger ug Gerryboy.

    Maayo unta ug dunay taga Noynoy nga kampo nga makabasa niini aron pod makatabang pag petition sa Comelec ug Smartmatic aron dunay manual recount sa mga botos dinhi sa Biliran.

  21. Gud am to all. Na canvass na tanan ballots thru automation. aduna na usab gi proclaim nga mga winning candidates ang comelec nganong dili man nato dawaton and maong resulta. Last May 12 ug 13 sa rally sa mga supporters ni cong chong sobra sila ka violente diin ang mga way labot ug inosenteng mga empleyado ila gipasakitan. Dili gyud sila kadawat kay di sila katoo nga sa kadako sa kwarta (P1,300 to 2,000 per voter) nga ila gipanghatag MAPILDI PA SILA. Ang pagpanghatag ug kwarta dili ba kini election fraud?

  22. one dynasty begets anotiscreher dynasty. ang panghatag ni chong, tag 1200, may tag 1000 ug may tag 1500, depende sa lugar for the father and son tandem. ang panghatag ni espina tag 800, for the brother and brother tandem. daku ang discrpancy sa kwarta. mao na’y no vote buying? si roselyn tag 100 ang hatag, si redy tag 200, depende sa lugar. hain naman imong adbokasiya atty? fight for love? unsa nga love?

  23. TO ALL CHONG SUPPORTERS!!!!!!
    MIRISI!!!!DAH MAO NA WA MANGUD NINYO PUGNGI INYO MGA BABA…GIINGNAN BITAW M NA AYAW MO UG EXPECT NA MAGDAUG MO KAY TAKILID JUD NA SI CHONG KAY ANG MGA TAWO NA MISMO ANG NIDILI.GIPANKAUN LANG ILANG KWARTA KAY ANG RASON KINURAKOT RMAN TO NI CHONG…KAMU RA DIAY MAGPULOS?HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…AKO PA NINYO DAWATA NLANG NA MGA LOOSER MO.HAHAHAHA…MAO NA MGA SHOLOK…RALLY RALLY PA NA GINPROCLAIM NA…HILAK HILAK DAYON ANG BAYOT…INGON PA NA NALUOY SYA IYA PAPA KAY TUNGOD SA KAHAGO..MAO NA KAY TUGA TUGA NA DI MAN JUD TO MAGDAUG..NYA NALUUOY PUD SYA SA BILIRAN..INGNA NLANG NA NAANUGNAN SYA SA ILA PA UNTANG MAKURAKOT SA UMAABOT NA PANAHION KUNG MKALINGLOD SILA…AKO A NIMO.PAMAYAD NANG SA IMO MGA UTANG BAGA UG NAWONG NA BAYOT!!!!!!!!!!KITA DAW ANG KATAG NO?

  24. TO LOUD SPEAKER GLEN CHONG:

    EVEN IF YOU LOST THE CONGRESSIONAL SEAT, DON’T WORRY. YOU CAN STILL BET THE LOUD SPEAKERSHIP AGAINST ARROYO AND BELMONTE THIS COMING JULY…

    NOYNOY WILL CREATE THE DEPARTMENT OF GAYS UNDER “EO 4297″ (GAYS). HE IS EYEING YOU FOR THIS POSITION SINCE YOU’RE RESUME’ SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THE GOOD PART IS THAT THIS ITEM IS EQUIVALENT TO “CONGRESSMAN”.

    HE ASSURED ME IT WILL BE THE TOP PRIORITY OF HIS GOVERNMENT. YOUR APPOINTMENT IS BEING DELIBERATED BY COMMISSION OF APPOINTMENT NOW. SO, BE HAPPY!!!

    CHEERS!

  25. Fight for your rights…
    The right to Vote is worth dieing for…

    It seems manditory to have a physical recount and then the properly elected officials take office..

  26. VIVIEN…

    murag dili siguro si Chong ang makadala ana nga posisyon kay si Gov. mag Liberal naman pod na inig sugod na sa iyang term in congress, unya ang sigurado gayud nga makakuha anang posisyon mao ang iyang igsuon kay arun mudagan next election for senator tanang Espina, kay wla man dayaun kaniari ang tiguwang pagdagan kay nominee gayud to siya ni Gloria for Senator, unya sa ICU man cya mao nga wla cya kadagan ug senator..

  27. Kamong mga supporters ni Espina, kamo na mismo ang nag ingon nga gamay ang pamalit ug VOTES sa mga Espina kompara sa mga chong. Di mo magduda ana? Nahitabo na ba sa piniliay sa Biliran sa mga posisyong ingon ana nga ang gamay ang pamalit magdaug? C’mon folks! tell it to the marines! Buot ingnon ning daug tungod sa vote for love? Vote for evil hinuon. Ayawg apil apil sa mga espina panluko sa mga biliranon kay modaghan na mo.

    Ayaw nalang tag pag hipokrito kay kabalo na ang tanang biliranon ug unsang klasing mga tawo ang ilang pilian. Ma Chong, ma Espina, pulos na mga corrupt ug limbongan. Ayaw ninyong ingna nga nindaug kay tungod sa vote for love. Kahilas baya. Naa ba diay love ang mga DEMONYO?

    MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections en banc has ordered the transfer of 60 PCOS (precinct count optical scan) machines from the Antipolo City provincial capitol to the Senate office in Pasay City for safekeeping, following allegations that the machines were used for electoral fraud.

    In a two-page decision released Tuesday, the Comelec en banc, led by its Chairman Jose Melo, authorized “the transfer of the 60 PCOS machines and its accessories, including the transmission equipment, from the Ynares Gym in Antipolo, Rizal, to the Senate of the Republic of the Philippines.”

    The PCOS machines were initially found to be stacked inside the Antipolo City home of a Smartmatic technician, resulting to tension among candidates in the city.

    The machines were eventually transferred to the Ynares Gym near the provincial capitol, but presidential bets Senator Ana Consuelo “Jamby” Madrigal, JC delos Reyes, and Nicanor Perlas wanted the machines to the Senate for safekeeping.

    The three presidential bets, who conceded to frontrunner Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, visited the Comelec office in Intramuros, Manila initially to seek an audience with Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal.

    They were surprised to find out, however, that the en banc had resolved the matter.

    “This is an absolute victory because we now have the process to have [these machines] legally transferred to the Senate for the safekeeping until the official Senate [body] investigates [on] this subject matter,” Perlas told reporters.

    “We’re excited. This is a tremendous victory because we were headed off to a potential bloody confrontation with 500 police force and 2,000 supporters. They have been there for one week and now they can really rejoice,” he added.

    Asked what they hoped to gain, Madrigal, Delos Reyes, and Perlas said they were not doing this for the votes.

    “Hindi kami nagiilusyon na [We are not under any illusion that] we have the mandate of the people. But we owe it to our followers, to the Filipino people,” Delos Reyes said.

    “This is beyond personal gain for any of us,” Madrigal seconded.

    MANILA, Philippines—House Speaker Prospero Nograles said Wednesday he plans to file charges of election sabotage against officials of the Commission on Elections, some members of the Board of Election Inspectors and equipment supplier Smartmatic TIM.

    In a statement, Nograles, who lost his bid for mayor of Davao City, has offered the House of Representatives as a sanctuary for potential witnesses who were the “least guilty” in alleged electoral fraud.

    Nograles said that while the elections were generally credible, reports of automated election fraud from all over the country can no longer be dismissed as minor glitches.

    He issued the statement just hours before the House committee on suffrage and electoral reform began its probe on poll irregularities.

    Nograles said the “the gross disregard of the Comelec of mandated security requirements is tantamount to gross negligence of duty and culpable direct participation in the grandest election sabotage in history ever perpetrated in this country.”

    He argued that the Comelec made it easier for the cheating to take place by failing to implement security measures.

    Nograles claimed that based on testimony of IT experts, there were at least three ways the votes could have been manipulated in the last election: the use of predetermined results using excess official ballots; use of pre-programmed cf cards that can transmit fake results repeatedly; and the use of jamming devices to block transmission of authentic results and facilitate transmission of manufactured results.

    “We cannot allow our people to be hoodwinked by hallelujahs to a totally flawed election process,” Nograles said. “We must give back to every Filipino voter the truth of the vote stolen from them.”

    “I am filing cases against the perpetrators of this nationwide election sabotage and all those whose gross disregard of our election laws and their duty to secure the integrity of elections in the country and this includes the election fraud operators, Smartmatic Inc. and it’s sub-contractors, Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs), officials of the National Printing Office (NPO), as well as officials of the Comelec,” said Nograles.

    Election sabotage under Section 29 of Republic Act 8436 covers acts that result in utilizing, tampering with, destroying and stealing official ballots, election returns and certificates of votes, electronic devices and their components, peripherals and supplies such as the counting machines, memory packs diskettes and receivers and computer sets.

    It also includes interfering with, impeding and absconding for the purpose of gain the installation or use of computer counting devices and the processing, storage, generation and transmission of election results, data and information as well as gaining and causing access to using, altering, destroying or disclosing any computer data, program, system software, network or any computer related devices, facilities, hardware or equipment, whether classified or declassified.

  32. i happened to pass along the provincial capitol ths afternoon and i really pitied those women lying on the ground under the heat of the sun just to show their support to cong. chong, i really appreciate the efforts for the organizers of the rally, however, it’s sad to know that despite the efforts showed we cannot change the results of the election that the ESPINAS got the highest top positions in the province… the only advice i can give to all cHong supporters is that HUMILITY IS A VIRTUE…if we lose accept it with all our heartrs, maybe gov. espina is destined to become the congessman next to cong chong…god bless
