DLSU law Professor lauds Duterte for fighting against selfish interests of the oligarchs: He stood for us against powerful sectors




News came out that San Miguel Corporation’s (SMC) tycoon Ramon Ang just offered to pay the government in advance P22.68 billion in capacity charges amid the ongoing court battle over the administration of the 1,200-megawatt (MW) Ilijan combined-cycle power plant.
That is Duterte effect, previous administrations have been so lenient on the big businesses owned by the country’s tycoon that they would just don’t pursue and implement the law for the fear of they might be put into a situation that would make their stay in Malacanang short.

But its different with President Rodrigo Roa Duterte , the Philippines’ first Mindanaoan president , he dares to take all these oligarchs head one nothing to back him up but a law that says they owe government.

University of St. La Salle law professor Jocelle Sigue in her 2018 post is still significant because in her Facebook post she outlined the different personalities that the Chief executive had met head on and made them follow what is provided by law, all in the benefit of the Filipino people.

“The President stood there today saying more powerful and hardhitting words than expletives. More than anything else - HE STOOD THERE FOR US AGAINST POWERFUL SECTORS which Business INVOLVE MILLIONS and BILLIONS - Making himself VULNERABLE and a MOVING TARGET for PEOPLE who ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR OWN INTERESTS,” Sigue said.

For purposes of public knowledge, clarity and truthfulness, Please see Sigue’s full Facebook post below:

More than anything else - HE STOOD THERE FOR US AGAINST POWERFUL SECTORS which Business INVOLVE MILLIONS and BILLIONS - Making himself VULNERABLE and a MOVING TARGET for PEOPLE who ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR OWN INTERESTS -

He stood there for US against ILLEGAL LABOR CONTRACTORS by saying ENDO must stop

He stood there for US against the biggest TRIADS of CHINA (he actually named one) and others who no longer deal with drugs by the MILLION but by the BILLIONS (and has a very organized network of delivery system via “tingi” which he find unbelievable to have reach the provinces (Oh yeah, Mr President, heard about these drugs being inserted in siopao or movie theaters as bagsakans and public officials as distributors?)

He stood up for us against the TELCO Doupoly whose assets are huge, it will be hard to stand against them especially when you have politicians approving the third TELCO process but needing campaign funds

He stood up against rice cartels, hoarders and protectors which is tantamount to as he calls “economic sabotage”. I can just imagine the huge capital of these syndicates.

He stood up against the all powerful mining industry, companies exploiting our aquatic and mineral resources and watershed protected areas and told them to clean up their mess

He stood up against IMPERIAL MANILA for the sake of Mindanao and cities who have not been benefited by the 1987 Consitution which over centralized the sharing of power and taxes in the national government

He stood there for the ones he call as his Muslim Brothers and uphold the Bangsamoro Law, citing there are many criticsms against it but he wants to take the Road to Peace rather than the Road to War, learning he said from the Marawi experience.


He stood up against big multi-national companies who do not wish to see the MSMEs or small businesses have equal chances to compete with them by giving more incentives to MSMEs

He stood for the middle class who can only earn a few thousands every month and say they can keep more savings because they will be exempt from income tax but for those whose luxury extend to so many vices - taxes will be up

He stood up for ordinary coconut farmers and the agriculture industry, for families needing subsidy, improvement of tertiary education, despite the rigid educational system that has become a business

He stood there for us against unscrupulous medical centers and hospitals who suck the blood out of even poor people by immediately ordering the passage of the universal healthcare law

He stood there for us against fixers, corrupt and incompetent agencies who continously milk ordinary citizens and businesses as a result of inefficient and slow transactions systems by warning them about the implementation of the Ease of Doing Business Law

He stood for everyone who had continously propagated a unitary system of government and never gave fedralism a chance so that cities can forge their own future.

By openly endorsing the ConCom Constitution Draft, he also openly declared war again politicians who favor dynasty and political clans who do not wish to see each region vote for two senators each. These clans are powerful. They can crush the president anytime.

I am sharing this because I am sure the PRESIDENT will have “millions” of ENEMIES starting tonight and BILLIONS worth of possibilities to really end up failing as he said in his conclusion. His mouth is really going to cause him more trouble this time.


He just tripled his number of enemies today. And I am sure these sectors can afford to pay experts to further put him in bad light. I learned early in life (well in a movie) that the most dangerous men in the world are not politicians, but businessmen. Especially businessmen with political interests.

We can all hate this old guy all we want for his lack of refinement, his biases, his inconsistencies, his craziness, his senility - but today, he stood up for us.

Who is going to shield him from these high powered “bullets” of business interests?
