The following exposés detailed the sins of commission/omission by Cavaliers during the 2004 Presidential Elections. You be the judge…
CASH DISTRIBUTION IN SULU
Sulu, May 2004
While the canvassing of votes was being done inside Military Camps in Jolo, Sulu, watchers from both the Opposition and Administration Parties were given wads of cash by officers for them to leave the canvassing area. After the watchers left, the results were rigged in favor of GMA. The money was brought by MGEN HERMOGENES ESPERON (Cav ’74) in large black backpacks and distributed to concerned commanders.
Then MGEN GABRIEL HABACON (Cav ’72) was the Commander of Task Force COMET based in Sulu. For his participation in the election cheating, HABACON was promoted to Commander, SOUTHCOM under scandalous circumstances that forced the cancellation of the turn-over ceremonies for the supposed new commander, MGEN SAMUEL BAGASIN (Cav ’72).
Then COL NEHEMIAS PAJARITO (Cav ‘76) was the Brigade Commander of the 104th Brigade based in Sulu. For his involvement in the election cheating, PAJARITO was later promoted to BGEN. He later got his second star.
Then COL NELSON ALLAGA (Cav ’76) was the Brigade Commander of the 3rd Marine Brigade based in Sulu. He later admitted openly to several Marine officers that he distributed money to his battalion commanders to rig the results in favor of GMA. For this, he was promoted to BGEN. He is now LTGEN and Commander of WESMINCOM.
GEN. ESPERON’s INSTRUCTIONS
Tawi-Tawi, May 2004
During the municipal and, later, provincial canvassing in Tawi-Tawi, then Navy CAPTAIN FELICIANO ANGUE (Cav ’78) kept on calling COL ARIEL QUERUBIN (Cav ’79) to express his disgust with then MGEN HERMOGENES ESPERON’s (Cav ’74) because of the latter’s instruction for him (ANGUE) to tamper with the election results in Tawi-Tawi so that GMA gets additional votes in Tawi-Tawi. ANGUE told QUERUBIN that instead of complying, he appealed to ESPERON that the “special operations” be done elsewhere since Tawi-Tawi does not have a big voter population to play with. Because of his non-cooperation, ANGUE was immediately relieved of his post. However, since he kept quiet about this incident, he was eventually promoted to Commodore.
PMA CLASS ’77 “Chicken Club”
Camp Crame, Not long after election
Members of Class ’77 have what they call the “CHICKEN CLUB” which meets every Wednesday for lunch at Camp Crame. The said lunch meeting was usually hosted by S/SUPT EDGARDO H DIVINA. Not long after the ’04 elections, then COL RAYMUNDO FERRER attended a “CHICKEN CLUB” meeting with more than a dozen members of the class. Among those present are BOY CAMAGAY, MANDY ANDAYA, and CHITO MANGUBAT. FERRER, at that time, was Brigade Commander of the Army Brigade based in Basilan. He was bragging to his classmates that he was the one who “took charge of the ballot boxes” in Basilan. He was relating it like it was the most commendable thing he has ever done. FERRER was later promoted to BGEN (also the first Army general of his class), and later on, was also the first to get a second star.
GEN SENGA’S REVELATIONS
Camp Aguinaldo, 2000H 23 February 2006
During a meeting at the Chief of Staff’s Office, GEN GENEROSO SENGA (Cav ’72) confessed to BGEN DANILO LIM (Cav ’78), COL ARIEL QUERUBIN (Cav ’79) and MGEN RODRIGO MACLANG (Cav ’76) that he himself is “not clean” and he was also “used “during the 2004 presidential election cheating
THE MAYUGA REPORT
The controversial MAYUGA REPORT, which holds the key to the above exposés, has not been released. The only thing that was released was the 2 page summary that states:
“Finally, the Board has been able to identify certain lapses in procedures in the conduct of COMELEC deputized duties as well as irregularities of some military personnel and thereby recommended corrective actions such as:
1. Reassess the utilization of military personnel as members of the Board of Election Inspectors and clustering of precincts;
2. Restudy the utilization of military camps for canvassing of votes;
3. Deputization by names;
4. Formulation of policies regarding AFP participation in future electoral exercises; and
5. Conduct of further investigation to determine the specific culpability of some AFP personnel on their alleged” involvement in the 2004 elections cheating.
HELLO GARCI SCANDAL
THE GARCI GENERALS
(from www.gmanew.tv based on the transcript of the “Hello Garci” Tape)
A conversation between COMELEC Commissioner Garcillano and different personalities including Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo that confirms on how the so called “Garci Generals” used their power and influence to control the elections in favor of GMA
'GARCI' GENERALS and other military and police officials whose names were mentioned in the Hello Garci wiretapped conversations
BRIG. GEN. FRANCISCO GUDANI, Marine brigade commander in charge of the Lanao provinces: Gudani's name was mentioned in the Hello Garci recordings (May 28 22:13 and June 8 13:25) as the uncooperative military officer who refused to go along with COMELEC Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano. He defied EO 464 and appeared at a Senate hearing on the Hello Garci wiretapping controversy on September 28, 2005. The executive order, issued earlier that day, banned senior government officials including the military from appearing in congressional investigations without the prior approval of President Arroyo. During the hearing, Gudani said that he saw vote-buying and other irregularities in Lanao during the 2004 elections. Citing information from his unnamed source, he also claimed First Gentleman Mike Arroyo flew to Mindanao twice in a private helicopter days before the election to deliver boxes containing approximately P500 million. Gudani also said that he was called to Manila by his superiors "just to play golf" when all armed forces unit commanders were on red alert in the days after the 2004 elections, when vote counting was being done. He became assistant superintendent of the Philippine Military Academy eventually sacked from his post and charged by the AFP with violation of Article of War 65 (willful disobedience of a superior officer) following his appearance at the Senate hearing.
BRIG. GEN. HERMOGENES ESPERON, JR., Deputy chief of staff for operations. A "Gen. Esperon" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recordings (May 28 22:13; June 8 13:25). In the conversations, "Gen. Esperon" was mentioned along with "Gen. Kyamko" as having a hand in temporarily taking out Brig. Gen. Gudani from Marawi and Lanao during the canvassing of votes in those areas. He replaced Lt. Gen. Generoso Senga as commanding general of the Philippine Army in 2005, (after the Hello Garci recordings came out).
LT. GEN. ROY KYAMKO, Commander, Southern Command. A "Gen. Kyamko" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recordings (May 28 22:13; June 8 13:25). In the conversations, "Gen. Kyamko" was mentioned along with "Gen. Esperon" as having a hand in temporarily taking out Brig. Gen. Gudani from Marawi and Lanao during the canvassing of votes in those areas.
MAJ. GEN. GABRIEL HABACON, Chief of Task Force Comet, whose jurisdiction included the Western Mindanao region. A "Gen. Habacon" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recordings (May 29 14:00; June 2 22:29). In the conversations, the man believed to be Garcillano allegedly said that Habacon still did not know much about matters pertaining to changes in election returns. After the elections, Habacon became commanding general of the 1st Infantry Division, Philippine Army. In January 2006, he was appointed chief of the Southern Command, replacing Lt. Gen. Edilberto Adan; Habacon assumed the post just months before his retirement in September 2006. Sen. Rodolfo Biazon dubbed Habacon's appointment as a "payback appointment".
P/DIR. GEN. ARTURO LOMIBAO, Director, PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group. A "Gen. Lomibao" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recordings (June 5 17:01; June 6 19:00; June 7 20:38). In the conversations, it seemed that the man believed to be Garcillano had coordinated with or contacted Lomibao during the canvassing of votes, and that Lomibao went to Zamboanga. Became chief of the directorial staff. Appointed PNP chief in March 2005.
(Ret.) GEN. HERMOGENES EBDANE, JR., Chief, PNP. A "Gen. Ebdane" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recording on June 5 17:01. In the conversation, the man believed to be Garcillano mentioned that it was Ebdane who instructed Lomibao to go to "Languyan". (Languyan is a municipality in Tawi-Tawi province). Appointed National Security Adviser by President Arroyo when his stint as PNP chief ended in 2004. Appointed DPWH secretary in February 2005.
COL. AMINKADRA SALAHUDDIN UNDUG, Commanding officer of ISAFP MIG9 based in Zamboanga. A "Col. Undug" was mentioned in the Hello Garci recording on June 5 13:41. In the recording, one of the men said he asked the ISAFP through "Col. Undug" in Zamboanga to pick up the family of a certain "Rashma" and use them as a "bargaining chip" to prevent this "Rashma" from "talking."

GMA: So nagmamatch?
Garcillano: Oho. Sa Basilan, alam nyo naman ang mga military dun eh hindi masyadong marunong kasi silang gumawa eh. Katulad ho dun sa Sulu, sa General Habacon. Pero hindi naman ho, kinausap ko na ‘yung Chairman ng Board sa Sulu. Ang akin patataguin ko na muna yung EO ng Pangutaran na para hindi siya maka-testigo ho. Na-explain na ho yung sa Camarines Norte.

Garcillano: Ah ... delikado yan.

Garcillano: Hello ma’am. Good evening. Tumawag po kayo.
GMA: Ah dumating...dapat i-sigurado natin consistent yung mga documents sa Maguindanao.

GMA: Oo, oo.
Garcillano: Pero ma’am … Ano ba naman. Hindi ko maintindihan what they are trying to drive at when 120 days before elections established na ang precincts.

GMA: Ok. Ok. Ok. Sige, thank you.
June 7 20:38 Conversation between Gary (V. Garcillano) and a certain Ruben
Ruben: Yeah, Garci, si Ruben. Anong balita?
Garcillano: Eto, nag-aano ako kasi. ‘Yung sa Tipo-tipo na tao, parang nasa kamay na nila.
Ruben: Oo nga eh.
Garcillano: Pero wala namang damage magagawa … (garbled) … pero kay Wahab. Kaya dapat si Wahab ang gumalaw niyan.
Ruben: Pero, magte-testify sya against the administration eh. Against the President.
Garcillano: How can she? Wala naman siyang ginawa kay Presidente.
Ruben: Eh hindi, di ba ang gagamiting magte-testify siguro ‘yun against the President regarding the bawas-dagdag na ginawa dun sa ano.
Garcillano: Wala naman siyang ginawa para kay Presidente dun sa kanya ah.
Ruben: Hindi, ‘yun ang pinepresenta di ba? Yan ‘yung pinepresenta ni Rufus Rodriguez pati yung kay Ebron?
Garcillano: Oo nga, pero wala naman. Kay Ebron, di niya makukuha si Ebron, wala na, di niya makukuha.
Ruben: Si Ebron nga, hindi na nga dahil as of two days ago, nakausap na nga raw eh.
Garcillano: Sinong nakausap?
Ruben: Si Ebron, nakausap na ng military.
Garcillano: Sabihin mo dyan sa military na ‘yan, wag silang masyadong kwan makikialam, kasi sinampal pala si Ebron eh, aking tao yan eh, taga Batangas yan eh.
Ruben: Ah ganun ba?
Garcillano: Oo, huwag namang ganun. Bago nila ginawa yun nung primero, sinampal pa siya eh, kaya mangiyak-ngiyak yung tao eh. Pero kahit pakainin mo ng bala yun, di na magpapakita. Ngayon, itong si Rashma Hali, wala naman masasabi against kay ma’am eh, kahit anong gawin nila because she has not done anything except kay Wahab Akbar. Kaya dapat si Wahab ang mawarningan.
Ruben: Pero, ano ba pare yung pinakikitang ano ni Rufus na ano?
Garcillano: Ah, pabayaan mo siya but it does not have anything to do with the President.
Ruben: Ibig mong sabihin yung pinakikitang dinagdagan daw yung boto ni Presidente eh....
Garcillano: Hindi naman nila matetestiguhan kung hindi sa kanyang munisipyo.
Ruben: Yung Tipo-tipo di ba?
Garcillano: Oo nga, pero ang problema niyan, wala naman kay Presidente dyan.
Ruben: Hindi ba yun ang pinepresenta ni Rufus na dinagdagan?
Garcillano: Yung pinakikita ni Rufus, tingnan natin sa provincial canvass, kasi wala naman nagagawa yan dun sa kanyang munisipyo. Bahala siya, kaya nga ina-ano ko si Wahab, pina-aano ko kay Wahab ngayon, dapat si Presidente ma-kwan niya kay Wahab para si Wahab ang kumuha ng taong yan kung hindi, ipakukuha ko ang pamilya niyan.
Garcillano: Yun na lang last resort ko, pakukuha ko ang pamilya nyan.
Ruben: Kaya nga. Ganun talaga ang dapat gawin dun.
Garcillano: Oo, pero dapat malaman ni Wahab na si Wahab, kasi ang more damage will be against that Wahab Akbar, not the President.
Ruben: Bakit, maapektuhan ba yung boto ni Wahab?
Garcillano: Siya talaga ang ano, ang malaking ano, naka-pabor.
Garcillano: Kaya kung maaari papupuntahin ko nga rito yung supervisor, patago ko rin dito sa kin. Because, I want to clean out kung alin yung mga by municipality results.
Ruben: Hindi ‘yun nga ang nagkakaproblema dahil si Wahab ang nagpatrabaho nyan eh.
Garcillano: Eh ang problema niyang si Wahab, gumalaw si Wahab nung huli na.
Ruben: Huli na nga eh. Akinse na nung gumalaw si Wahab eh.
Garcillano: Alam mo si Wahab was working for FPJ actually.
Ruben: Oo, nung una.
Garcillano: Nung nalaman niyang matatalo si FPJ, saka bumaligtad.
Ruben: Sinabi mo. Totoo talaga.
Garcillano: Yung mga tao namin diyan, eh galit na galit sa kanya eh. Kaya ito, kung anuman, basta malalaman ko hanggang umaga, ng maagang-maaga kung ano talaga ang score doon so I can tell
them to get her family kung halimbawa. Sabagay medyo matindi na ito kasi nandun naman si Lomibao, nandun din si... ewan ko kung sino pang nandun, may isang colonel na nandun. Kung kailangang kunin, di kunin na ang pamilya nya. Lokohan na rin lang eh, di kwan. Pero yang Rufus na yan, wala namang alam yan.
Ruben: Kaya nga, kaya nga.
Garcillano: Ewan ko lang kung pupunta pa uli yun, pakidnap ko siya. Nakakaano eh.
Ruben: Hindi naman pumupunta, pero ang balita ko nandirito sa Parañaque.
Garcillano: Nandito na yung ano...
Ruben: Nandito na nga raw sa Parañaque nun pang Saturday.
Garcillano: O sige. Basta we’ll ask somebody to look for her and then get her family, kung pwede.
Ruben: Oo, oo. Tanong ko lang sa ‘yo pare, papaano ‘yung ano natin, sa party-list?
Garcillano: Hindi ko pa maa-ano kasi hanggang ngayon wala kaming usapan mga tao tungkol diyan.
Tatawagan kita bukas ng tanghali kung anuman.
Ruben: O sige.
Garcillano: Ano yun? Ano yun?
Ruben: Yung TUCP at saka ANAD.
Garcillano: Ay! Wag mo nang dagdagan, mahihirapan tayo niyan.
Ruben: Hindi ba mas maganda kung yung lahat ng magkakatabi na yan eh...
Garcillano: Hindi kasi nag-proclaim na kami. Ang alam ng mga Commissioner and the other people there, mahirap nang kumuha, kung magkuha tayo, yung mga malapit na, yung hindi na mahahalata kasi…
Ruben: Tama. Pero malapit yun ha kesa sa SMILE.
Garcillano: Kaya nga, bahala na pero ang kaso, pag sabay-sabay mo niyan, sinong pagagawin mo
niyan eh itong mga bata hindi na pupwedeng gumalaw eh. Titingnan ko bukas kung anuman.
Ruben: Sige, tawagan mo ako ha.
Ruben: Ok, ok sige thank you.

Gene: Eh ano ba gagawin ko, gagawan ko pa ba ng memo ‘to o ipapareschedule, papaano, gagawa ako

Gene: Gagawa ako ng ano ha.
Garcillano: Oo para sa commission en banc.
Gene: Ano nangyari sa inyo? O sige, nasa meeting ka yata eh. Ok, sige ok.
Garcillano: Mamayang hapon nandiyan ako.
Gene: O yung best friend mo bumabanat na naman, putang-ina talaga itong si Pimentel.
Garcillano: Bakit, bakit?
Gene: Hindi ka ba nanonood ng TV?
Garcillano: Hindi ako nanonood.
Gene: Putang-ina binabakbakan si Betty Pizaña.
Garcillano: Oo nga eh, anak ng jueteng naman, wala namang kakwenta-kwenta yan.
Gene: Sinasabi na nga na clerical error, putang-ina talagang matanda ito.
Garcillano: 116 votes lang. Ibigay mo na sa kanya. (Laughs)
Gene: (Laughs) Ok pare sige, sige.
