For lack of a better description I just used the word ‘overwhelmingly’ to mean also that what was once a sizable bank deposit allegedly coming from a shady transaction entered into by Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla with businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles, diverting millions of their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) to bogus NGOs in exchange for commissions, has been depleted to bare-bones that if people do not know who they owners are, one would think they are just middle-class people. 364 more words

After being critical of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) chief negotiator for using an alias in talking peace with the government and working for the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), Cayetano finally uncovered Iqbal’s real name to be Datucan Abas, based on school and criminal records that he presented. 299 more words
