[VIDEO]: A team of lawyers including Atty. Glenn Chong, the clean election advocate has filed numerous cases against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV that include inciting to sedition. It is now in the Preliminary Conference stage.

Php 2 Billion Bank Account

The complaint stemmed from Trillanes’ October 3 privilege speech. He accused Du30 of having bank transactions of more than P2 billion from 2006 to 2015. Trillanes made no direct appeal for soldiers to kill the President. But the lawyers think that it’s enough to nail him when he said that troops would probably have to use their M-60 machine guns against the president because of the volume of evidence proving the latter’s ill-gotten wealth.

Unlawful Remarks for a Senator

The lawyers said Trillanes violated Section 3(e) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (Republic Act 3019) for “irresponsibly and recklessly and continuously accusing, sans evidence,” that the president is keeping over P2 billion in bank accounts and/or amassing illegally-acquired wealth. The complainants cited the statement of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) last September denying that it provided the Office of the Ombudsman with documents and information related to its investigation on Duterte’s finances.

The Law is the Law

The first business of the Philippine government is the preservation of the State. As well as the promotion of the welfare of all the people. Senator Trillanes endangers the life of State and its people. He is responsible for all the probable and logical consequences of his acts. The Senator has caused the evil deed and therefore faces the consequences of his actions as per the law.

End of Trillanes’ Bullying?

Trillanes who vows to “work hard” in ousting Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III should the majority bloc keep Sen. Richard Gordon as Senate Blue Ribbon committee chair has weakened. The vocal administration critic said that the latter’s handling of the powerful committee, which undertakes high-profile legislative investigations, has affected the Senate’s independence. Gordon has given him disciplinary actions but that does stop him from disrespecting authorities. Thus, prompted the pro-administration group to act on his abusive statements.

Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest NOT Enough to Get Rid of Smartmatic for 2019



Elena Grace Flores

Filipinos are not over with the Smartmatic nightmare during the election in 2016. However, it might still be the same provider in 2019. Bongbong Marcos’ plight seems not enough. Section 33 of RA 9369 states that the JCOC  must monitor and evaluate the digital election system within six months from the date of the election. Comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the AES technologies must be the basis for the appropriate recommendations to Congress.” The Comelec Advisory Council or CAC never failed to submit its report to the JCOC or Joint Congressional Oversight Committee on time since 2010 until 2016. This is when Marcos questions its integrity in his electoral protest.

Compliance is Overdue

The JCOC has not convened yet to deliberate on the performance of the automated election system or AES after 18 months. Therefore, the AES technology for 2019 midterm elections stays the same. Most of the stakeholders like the AES Watch, Tanggulang Demokrasya, Philippine Computer Society Foundation, Solidarity for Sovereignty, Nationalist Filipinos Against Foreign Intervention, Citizens National Guard, etc. are now urging the committee to act on this.

Accountable People

Ex-JOCC Chairman, Sen. Koko Pimentel and former Comelec Chairman Andy Bautista were reminded of their obligation to promulgate the IRR. Unfortunately, no such action has been done yet. It is also not certain if Pnoy appointee Acting Chairman Christian Robert Lim will do something about it. This is despite clean elections advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong’s noise regarding the 2016 elections fraudulent activities that are not only manual but digital in nature.

Diversity Suggested

Former DICT Secretary and CAC Chair Rodolfo Salalima said that the CAC “envisions the creation of an ecosystem of interoperable. This is where multiple and mixed technologies providers can reasonably participate in election technology in the country’s elections. CAC encourages more diversity. He notes that in the past three elections, the Comelec uses the AES technology from only one vendor which is Smartmatic.

Smartmatic Monopoly

Bautista’s six options for 2019 are all from Smartmatic. Option 1 is 2010 and 2013 PCOS. Next is the purchase of VCMs on lease in 2016. The third is to combine both. Option 4 is the lease of new optical mark reader Smartmatic machines or OMR. Option 5 is the usage of other systems besides an OMR technology. They are still Smartmatic’s DRE technology. Finally, option 6 is to combine any of the five options. Unless the JCOC convenes, these options remain regardless of the progress of Marcos’ protest against Robredo’s victory.

How Does Glenn Chong’s Promise on Trillanes Avenge Bongbong Marcos’ Election Plight?


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong announces that the cases that they filed against the critic of President, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV  are the following as per his group’s promise:

  1.  Art. 142 of Revised Penal Code for inciting to Sedition
  2. Art. 136 of Revised Penal Code for Proposal to Commit Coup d’etat
  3. Sec 3(e) of Republic Act No. 3019 for graft and corruption.

He also explained the basis of the cases against the Senator. Aside from this development, he launches a campaign to call on the government not to use Smartmatic in 2019 after what happened to Bongbong Marcos.

[VIDEO]: How do you solve a problem like SmartMatic? Dahil ang SmartMatic po, kung wala tayong magawa upang mapigilan ito, ay ang ‘syang magbibilang nanaman ng boto sa 2019. As our guest, Former Congressman Glenn Chong, a Clean Elections Advocate, would describe it, it is a dreadful prospect.

Congress Support

Most loyalists believe that the key to the Du30-Marcos tandem realization is to give fake newsmakers like Trillanes a lesson.  This can even stop any destabilization efforts on a big scale. Cebu Representative Gwen Garcia who wants the truth to come out on the 2016 VP race also suggests running after the resigned Comelec Chair, Andy Bautista aside from the measures to manage Trillanes’ bullying.

Backing Bongbong Marcos

Lawyer, Atty. Glenn Chong earlier discloses to the Former Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes that the Liberal Party falls into his trap. This is to solely determine the party’s connivance with the Comelec. Therefore measuring the fraud committed against Bongbong Marcos. Just recently, Chong’s group fulfills its promise to make Trillanes liable for inciting rebellion. His negative remarks on the President are just harmful to the administration.

Privilege Speech Gone Wrong

Chong said that Senator Antonio Trillanes incited a coup in his Senate privilege speech on October 13, 2017. He also did the same violation during his speeches at the Tindig Pilipinas launching in University of the Philippines.


Not Protected by the Constitution

Chong said that Trillanes’ privilege speech is not protected by the constitution. He can be held liable for what he said against the President. He also gave an example of a U.S Supreme Court Case where an American Senator had faced charges for allegedly accepting bribes in exchange for his vote in the Senate. According to the U.S Senator Brewster, his speech was protected by the U.S Constitution, but the Supreme Court justices ruled that he committed a crime and accepting bribes is not protected by the law. In the case of Trillanes, Atty. Chong said that the critic of the President violated Article 142 and 136.

Pro-Bongbong Marcos Lawyer Glenn Chong Aids in Trillanes’ Sedition Case


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

Lawyer, Atty. Glenn Chong previously told Former Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes that he deliberately set up a trap to determine the connivance of the Commission on Election with the Liberal Party. This is to allegedly deny Bongbong Marcos of the VP post during the 2016 poll. Just recently, Chong’s name re-emerges as one of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s complainants in his sedition and rebellion cases. Earlier, the President signed a tougher penalty for such cases. Perhaps, not just a coincidence but a strategic move to put power abusive politicians into their right places to clean up the government from anti-administration stalwarts.

Trillanes’ Sedition and Rebellion Charges

Criminal charges are filed against Senator Trillanes for allegedly inciting rebellious acts against the administration. The complainants are a group of lawyers led by former Negros Oriental Rep. Jacinto “Jing” Paras. They filed the complaint before the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office. The 15-page complaint-affidavit filed by Manuelito Luna, representing the group of Paras, accused the senator of inciting to sedition, proposing to commit coup d’etat, and graft. Atty. Chong joined Nasser Marohomsalic, Nestor Ifurung, Eligio Mallari and Eduardo Bringas, and Louise Biraogo for the move.

The Lawyer Group’s Arguments

“Trillanes not only repeatedly uttered seditious words or speeches. He unabatedly circulated scurrilous libels against the President. These tend to disturb the public peace. They also repeatedly incited others to inflict any hate or revenge upon his person,” they said. The group urges government prosecutors to conduct an immediate preliminary investigation and file the necessary charges against Trillanes in court as evidence warrants. The complainants claimed that Trillanes “committed conspiracy or proposal to commit coup d’ Etat” for encouraging the military to rise up in arms against the Filipino leader.

Tougher Penalty

Du30 has signed into law RA 10951. It imposes tougher penalties for persons who committed treason, sedition, rebellion and other crimes under the Revised Penal Code. He signed RA 10951 on August 29. Under the new law, those who committed treason will be punished with Reclusion Perpetua and a fine not exceeding P4 million.

No Escaping Jail Term for Prision Mayor

The law says that a person committing conspiracy to commit coup d’ etat, rebellion or insurrection shall be punished by prision mayor in its minimum period with a fine not exceeding P1 million from the previous P8,000. Prision mayor involves jail term from 6 years to 12 years.Prision correctional with a fine not exceeding P400,000 shall be imposed on its medium period while a fine not exceeding P1 million on its maximum period. Prision correctional has a jail term 6 months to 6 years. Those who commit sedition would suffer the penalty of prision mayor in its minimum period and a fine not exceeding P1 million from the previous P10,000. Can this be a government clean-up drive for the big change?

Cebu is Not Bongbong Marcos’ Pilot Province but he Got 53 Less Votes from Manual Count


welcome By:

Elena Grace Flores

A “random statistics report” that ex-Congressman Glenn Chong got a copy of showed the results for the VP race in 40 select precincts in Cebu City which is not Bongbong Marcos’ pilot province for the recount. This takes place in the revision of votes in the election protest of Protestant mayoral candidate Michael Rama versus the incumbent mayor Tomas Osmeña. The report was based on election returns as printed by the vote-counting machines and compared to the physical counting of ballot marks. Chong said Marcos’ vote “discrepancy” was bigger than Robredo’s. In 14 out of 40 precincts that showed a discrepancy, the total votes for Marcos in the election returns was 53 votes less than in the physical count. In Robredo’s case, the difference was only 13.

System Failure or Manipulation

“For us, for me, there can be no other explanation, that this was a manipulation,” said Chong. “Whether the machine got it wrong or there was cheating,” “the machine count still wasn’t right. Because when you ‘extrapolate’ it, there’s a big difference between the actual vote count and the machine count,” added Chong. The former Congressman and lawyer was the one who exposes that he was offered to win the election in exchange for millions of Pesos.

Cebu is Not Marcos’ Pilot Province

Robredo won in Cebu (plus Lapu-Lapu City) and Cebu City, getting a combined 817,052 votes, versus Marcos’ 310,054 votes. Asked about whether this would help Marcos in his VP election protest, Chong said that Cebu City and Cebu province are in the protest, but not among the “pilot” areas. Marcos should prove his case first in his 3 pilot areas before the rest of the areas in the protest.

Discrepancies in Many Areas can Cover the Slim Margin

Marcos’ pilot provinces are Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. He lost to Robredo by only 263,473 votes. His election protest contested Robredo’s victory. The decryption and the printing of the ballots are now ongoing. However, the PET still has to order the retrieval of the ballot boxes for the manual recount from these areas.

Defending the Election’s Integrity

Chong said that the source of the “random statistics report” was former Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. Brillantes commented on Chong’s claim saying that; he “assures Marcos whom he supports that there are no supposed manipulations being made.” Chong retaliated with logical reasoning; “If it were not for Brillantes, then we wouldn’t have been able to know it. In a way, I thank him,” said Chong. “He declared himself as the source, and that document becomes credible,” he added.
