Syjuco, Echiverri indicted for graft anew

Former Iloilo Rep. Augusto Syjuco Jr. and former Caloocan Mayor Enrico Echiverri have been charged anew with separate graft cases in the Sandiganbayan.

It was the latest in the string of criminal charges filed by the Office of the Ombudsman against Syjuco, who later headed the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda). As for Echiverri, prosecutors accused him of irregularly awarding two contracts for drainage works totaling P17.27 million in 2012, without approval of the city council.

It means a lot of pressure – Okumu on UP’s pre-season romp

Two women’s volleyball titles in the pre-season means a lot for University of the Philippines. For the faithful, it’s the fruit of the school’s long and arduous task of building and training a competitive team. An accomplishment and a source of pride for the Diliman-based squad, which for years lagged behind compared to other schools’ volleyball program. For the players, those trophies serve as morale-booster that will fuel their drive to achieve more success. However, those mints also mean high expectations and pressure to live up to the hype coming into the UAAP Season 81 two months from now. A fact that head coach Godfrey Okumu knows too well. “It means a lot of pressure. For them and for me. That's what it means,” said the second year mentor after the Lady Maroons beat University of Sto. Tomas in their Philippine Superliga Collegiate Grand Slam title showdown Thursday. The Lady Maroons ended a long championship drought last September after defeating Far Eastern University in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference Finals to hoist their first major tournament title since winning it all in the 1982 edition of the UAAP. In those tournaments, Okumu utilized different lineups with star hitters Isa Molde and Tots Carlos suiting up alternately in the PVL and PSL, respectively. Carlos skipped the PVL to recover from an injury while Molde got a much-deserved rest as she sat out the whole PSL tournament.         “I've tried all my players in these preseason games. I've played almost 28, at least 25 or 26 players. I've been able to recycle them in all the tournaments we've played,” said Okumu, whose squad received a P350,000 prize money for winning the PSL Grand Slam. With his two units delivering crowns in the pre-season, Okumu now faces another dilemma: choosing his final lineup for the UAAP. “It's gonna be hard to choose, so don't ask me my line-up for UAAP, because I don't know,” he said. “We played well, and everybody gave... We had a trophy, and this is the second one. It's just a big pressure, and just hoping for the best.” Still, the feat they achieved in the pre-season attested his belief to the team he inherited after UP parted ways with former coach Jerry Yee last year. “I believe since two or three years ago, this team was a champion team, and it was just a matter of time,” said Okumu, who first met the team during a training camp a couple of years back. “But as I said before, big pressure. UAAP is another game altogether. We only played against three of the other teams. So, I don't wanna judge ourselves before playing against everybody else,” he added. “So yes, we want to go out there and win the UAAP, but we have to tread carefully.” “We have to be polite as we move on, train, work hard. Because it's a really big challenge for us, and we wouldn't like to play so well in the offseason, and when the real tournament comes up, we don't perform,” said Okumu. “So I believe, it puts us in a very tight situation, but the fight is there. So we're gonna fight until the end.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan

The Sandiganbayan will proceed with the trial of former Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap, now a Bohol representative, in connection with an employee car plan deemed disadvantageous to the government. In a 32-page resolution dated Dec. 5, the court's Sixth Division denied Yap's motion to quash and affirmed that the elements of valid graft charges were sufficiently stated to warrant a full-blown trial. The cases stemmed from the approval of a car plan, which, from 2008 to 2009, allowed 10 Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) employees to use the agency's funds to secure personal loans they obtained from the Philippine National Bank (PNB). Yap argued that he was absent dur...Keep on reading: It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan.....»»
