Just finished watching an interview of Jessica Soho with Napoles' lawyer Atty. Kapunan.
Tinanong ni Jessica si Kapunan. "Kaya mo bang sabihin na malinis at hindi corrupt si MIss Napoles?"
Napatigil si Kapunan at humirit na lang na kailangan nya ata ng lawyer para sa tanong na yun..
Hehehe, very telling interview. It just shows that Napoles is very much guilty if her lawyer can't even say that she is an hionest person.

Amid 'pork' scandal, online petition seeks to name cyclones after corrupt politicians
September 4, 2013 9:34am
Amid the scandal stemming from the multi-billion peso pork barrel scam, enraged netizens want the PAGASA to start naming cyclones after corrupt politicians.
The petition on Change.org to name destructive cyclones after "corrupt politicians and grafters" had gathered more than 1,300 signatures as of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
"Sign up now! Let this be a constant reminder of how our hard-earned money has been stolen or misspent by corrupt politicians," said Ismael Tomelden, who started the petition.
While Tolemden did not suggest a list of names of the supposed corrupt politicians, he said the damage caused by their corruption is "so great."
"The devastation they cause is so great... Mother Nature can't even compete with them for the destruction of life and property," he said.
He added the petition should be "a constant reminder of how our hard-earned money has been stolen or misspent by corrupt politicians."
PAGASA uses four lists of names for tropical cyclones, on a rotation basis. Each list has 26 names and 10 auxiliary names. LBG, GMA Newshttp://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/324922/news/nation/amid-pork-scandal-online-petition-seeks-to-name-cyclones-after-corrupt-politicians

The AMLC gets reports of transactions over P500k. Put those data in a database, check bank fund movements against those. Check actual movements from bank statements, and records. One question to settle is that, how compliant are banks in reporting above threshold transactions? I doubt that even in this issue the AMLA mechanism fails. Monitoring? Like the DBM, I have serious doubts.
Great stories can be told by these records. Who is interested in information beneath the skin, anyway?
