The Civil Service Commission has inclined itself to favor city hall-appointed personnel as those being
entitled to government emoluments contrary to the disallowance made by the Commission on Audit
based on DBM guidelines.
“Trouble is at one time it is allowed, next time, it is
disallowed. This makes the whole operation confusing,”
said one city hall executive. Now, the COA wants those
casuals given emoluments to return the money worth thousands
of pesos because “suddenly DBM does not allow
it, and COA is a blind follower.”
The Commission on Audit (CSC) does not investigate
as to where the salaries of government employees
are being charged, as long as it meets the minimum requirement,
they are considered casual plantilla appointments
and therefore stand to receive the benefits as provided
for under the civil service laws.
CSC regional director Merlinda Quillano told a dialog
Monday with employees of the city government of
Dumaguete, thatthe commission is not concerned about
the charging of the salaries but on at least four requirements
to include employees whose salaries were charged
to the Maintenance and Other Operation Expenses
The issues are: Did private first class Joseph
Pemberton kill trans gender Jennifer

We do not believe that murder suspect Private
Pemberton’s case or the act of killing , had MAINLY
to do with the Visiting Forces Agreement between the
Philippines and the United States. Therefore, the VFA
should not be an issue here except in the matter of
custody since the crime was committed while the man
was on official leave for rest and recreation in a bar in
the Philippines. Certainly you cannot just abrogate a
major agreement like the VFA just because a
small guy violated the law in his personal and private
Militants and geo politicians are taking this gaymurder
too far because their agenda is political while
Pemberton’s crime is personal. Trying Pemberton in
a Philippine court is a given. What is heaven or hell is
not the matter of custody, but rather, his guilt or innocence.
Who is to blame if the two agreed to go to
bed? And if proven guilty of murder beyond reasonable
doubt, he must go to jail. Which jail? That is not
the matter at all, because which jail is not the MAIN
issue. Trouble is the mob wants to be the judge, jury,
and executioner, all in one.....That is not the rule of
First they started as close friends,
even to the extent to figuratively “scratching each other’s back.” Then suddenly
in one instant, the bond became
sour and we don’t know if they still consider
themselves as that close a friend.
So careful, in choosing who are to be
your long and lasting friends.
Very recently, Joseph befriended
Jennifer and both ended in bed. When
Joe discovers Jenny was a trans gender,
the romance ended in murder.
Jinggoy and the Tuazons were more
than close family friends. She even claims
to deliver millions in kickbacks to him

escape plunder charges, she decides to
tell all about Jinggoy’s political enterprise.
What happened to friendship?
Jinggoy cries foul!
