The Philippines' First All-Opinion Website

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is one of the 9 senators accused of allegedly not declaring millions of pesos in their Statement of Contributions and Expenses (SOCE) in the past presidential elections. This was revealed by Pastor Boy Saycon, Secretary General of the Council Philippine Affairs or COPA to Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguire III.

During my radio program, “Kasangga Mo Ang Langit”, Saycon disclosed that there were 9 senators in the list that received amounts ranging from 50 to 100 million pesos in the past presidential elections. They did not declare this amount in their SOCE.

This information came from a trading company that donated campaign contributions to these senators. The trading company can prove that these contributions were not declared because they have Acknowledgement Receipts that have been duly signed when the payment was received. According to Saycon, these documents comprises of the original version and certified true copies too.

Pastor Saycon could not reveal all the names because Sec. Aguirre is currently verifying the signatures in the documents with the help of the NBI. Sec. Aguirre will be the one to announce the names on the list.

He also stressed that receiving campaign contributions without declaring them in one’s SOCE is a legal violation of the Philippine Constitution, “Alam mo kasi sa akin, Rey, walang problema kung pipirma ka dun sa resibo kasi kontribusyon yan, diba, sa campaign funds. Ang kasalanan dyan hindi nila dineklara sa SOCE nila,” Saycon added.
