Palawan Rep. Abraham Mitra, however, stressed that the committee was still finalizing its report on the fertilizer scam hearings which started in November last year.
Mitra noted that the committee report would depend on the findings of COA which could not pin down Bolante of any illegal acts in disbursing funds for the purchase of fertilizer prior to the 2004 elections.
It is shame for anyone who will exonerate him from Fertilizer scam. Is it the trend now that the ones accused of grand corruption go scot-free and those who expose the truth are jailed? Ah justice!
Say you Chief Justice Reynato Puno?

Press Secretary Cerge Remonde, in an interview over Radyo ng Bayan, emphasized that the “Hello, Garci” issue has long been dead and should no longer be revived, especially at this time.
Ong was said to be in possession of the original copies of the “Hello, Garci” taped conversations between former Commission on Elections commissioner Virgilio Garcilliano and several politicians, including a woman believed to be President Arroyo.
The tapes became controversial as they contained conversations about alleged cheating in the 2004 elections.

It is extremely sad that the AFP is being used to protect a corrupt regime run by corrupt officials. With this, it flagrantly show that the AFP has long failed to execute its Constitutional duty to protect the government and Filipino people.
This constitute treason.
Cabinet Secretary Silvestre Bello III said at a news briefing that Gadian would have no reason to snub the probe because she would “now enjoy the protection given by the Supreme Court against harassment and other forms of perceived danger from any authority of government.”
With SC's Writ of Amparo (WA) on Gadian, it is ripe for the Senate to re-start investigating Grand Corruption Cases by top public officials so ensure that witnesses shall now have full protection from the law. Previous witnesses in NBN scandal, World Bank mess, Euro-Generals, Jose Pidal scandal, feared to come out to expose the truth because of harassments from war dogs of Malacanang. Since Malacanang honored SC decision on Gadian, then it has no reason to reject similar SC action to protect state witnesses from exposing Arroyo government anomalies. The WA is a timely precedent!
