After the Valley Golf Brawl and the Alabang Boys, perhaps the newest government teledrama will be the case of National Printing Office Director Enrique Agana.
Parts of it have the flavor of the Valley Golf Brawl, especially after the Dela Paz's are allegedly negotiating with the Pangandamans for a settlement which may or may not include a several million pesos. Delfin has been said to go around the offices of various senators demanding that they give money to support his daughter's golf training and now is said to be using the charges filed against the Pangandamans as leverage to get funding for his daughter's golf training.
Anyway, the story from the Philippine Daily Inquirer says that Agana faces the charge of raping a 13-year-old girl after Concerned Citizen Napoleon Bunagan Jr. filed a sworn statement at the Department of Social Welfare and Development on January 16. The statement was the DSWD's basis for taking the girl into custody.
Agana has denied the charges and said that a syndicate in the NPO was behind the smear campaign against him because they stand to lose at least P300 million worth of contracts from the NPO.
Carmen said the accusations against Agana were concocted by Bunagan, Francisco Datu and a woman identified only as Yanni.
Bunagan, she told the Inquirer, has a printing company. She further claimed the three tried to take advantage of her naivete and closeness to Agana.
Carmen said that she was convinced to blackmail Agana after she was offered P10 million. They said that the money would be given to her when the contract for printing was awarded to the group.
She said that she backed out of the group's plan when she learned that they intended to hurt her daughter to make it appear that she was raped.
The mother sought help to locate her daughter after DSWD workers took her from her school. She, however, failed to find her daughter in several DSWD offices.
Social Welfare Secretary Esperanza Cabral, in a phone interview, confirmed that the girl was in their custody. Cabral said the department’s National Capital Region office, with the help of the National Bureau of Investigation, carried out the “rescue operation.”
Bunagan, meanwhile, denied that he had concocted the rape story through his lawyer.
Oh well! Is this a sign of some new kind of extortion? I only wish that the child really didn't get raped for P10 million.
Iba iyong magpabugbog ka at ipabugbog mo anak mo sa golf club para makahingi ng golf scholarship sa US or pangtustos sa golf training. Iba iyong ipa-rape mo anak mo para sa sampung milyong piso.
