Ilang araw na rin naging matunog sa media ang isang “MYSTERY MAN” na naging kasama nina COMELEC Chairman Benjamin Abalos, Jose “Joey” de Venecia III, DOT Sec. Leandro Mendoza na magkipag meeting sa ilang pagkakataon sa mga representatives ng ZTE Corporation patungkol sa controversial na National Broadband Network deal dito sa Pilipinas at sa China. Naging miseryoso dahil is daw itong makapangyarihang tao, napakamakangyarihan na sa lahat ng mga naging sangkot sa NBN deal siya pa lamang ang hindi pinangalanan.
Just a few minutes ago, Joey de Venecia testified under oath to the Senate inquiry on the ZTE broadband deal, that the “Mystery Man” he was referring to is no less than :
Joey de Venecia testified that the First Gentleman Mike Arroyo in a meeting in Wack-wack angrily pointed at him and shouted “Back off!”. He said that he believed that Abalos may have asked the first gentleman to force de Venecia no to meddle with the deal.
They first tried to involve de Venecia and the AHI in the deal but he refused. But when they lures did not work, the NBN Gang tried to use threats and intimidation to silence de Venecia.
And by the way is it by coincidence that first gentleman Mike Arroyo left the country? Well, we are just beginning to see the tip of the iceberg on the ZTE Scam. Will this eventually lead to the involvement of the Top Man / Woman in this stinkingly corrupt deal?
I believe, the involvement of the first gentleman signifies the involvement of Gloria in this multi-billion peso scam. Remember it was Gloria who convinced Sec. Neri to approve the deal despite his objection.
Nagtataka ba kayong lumalabas na kasangkot ang babaeng ito sa pangungurakot na ito?
