Malacanang INVESTIGATES ABUSIVE DAR Director (nagwala, nagsisigaw, nagmura, nanuntok at nanira ng government property)

Pangulong Duterte, kahiyahiya po ang inyong ALTER EGO na DAR Director na Presidential Appointee sa ginawang PAGWAWALA, PANINIGAW, PAGMUMURA, PANUNUNTOK at PAGSIRA ng GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. Dapat FIRED on the spot, SUMMARY DISMISSAL at PERPETUAL BAN on holding public office.

NAGWALA, NAGSISIGAW, NAGMURA, NANUNTOK AT NANIRA NG GOVERNMENT PROPERTY SI DAR DIRECTOR

SIX MONTHS after – still UNREPENTANT and UNPUNISHED

Marami ang bilib kay Pangulong Duterte sapagkat napapatino niya ang mga kawani ng pamahalaan. Lingid sa kaniyang kaalaman, isang Presidential Appointee na mismong si Pangulong Duterte ang nagtalaga sa Department of Agrarian Reform, ay nagpamalas ng hindi kanaisnais na pagkilos para sa isang government official. Ilang buwan na ang nakakalipas at hindi pa rin napaparusahan ang Director ng DAR Press and Media Relations Office na tila malakas ang kapit sa nasabing departamento ng pamahalaan.

Kung filing clerk o office secretary siguro ang nakagawa ng pagwawala, paninigaw, pagmumura, panununtok at pagsira ng pagaari ng gobyerno ay mabilis na siguro nabigyan ng katarungan at nalapatan ng kaukulang kaparusahan.

Defiant Hong Kong protesters vow huge rally despite Beijing threats

CNA

18 Aug 2019

Hong Kong protesters are hoping to get out a huge crowd later Sunday (Aug 18) in a bid to show the city’s leaders that their protest movement remains defiant despite increasingly stark warnings from Beijing.

Ten weeks of demonstrations have plunged the international finance hub into crisis and communist-ruled mainland China has taken an increasingly hardline tone, including labelling the more violent protester actions “terrorist-like”.

Clashes have broken out between police and hardcore protesters but the movement has won few concessions from Beijing or the city’s unelected leadership.

On Tuesday, protesters blocked passengers from boarding flights at the city’s airport and later assaulted two men they accused of being Chinese spies.

The images damaged a campaign that until then had largely only targeted the police or government institutions, and prompted some soul-searching among protesters.

China’s propaganda apparatus seized on the violence, with state media churning out a deluge of damning articles, pictures and videos.

State media also ran images of military personnel and armored personnel carriers across the border in Shenzhen, prompting the United States to warn Beijing against sending in troops, which analysts say would be a reputational and economic disaster for China.

In the aftermath of Tuesday’s airport chaos, some protester groups apologized and vowed to hold a huge rally on Sunday.

Billed as a “rational, non-violent” protest, it is being organised by the Civil Human Rights Front, a group that eschews confrontations with police and was the driving force behind record-breaking rallies in June and July that saw hundreds of thousands of people hit the streets.

MARCH BANNED

During smaller protest marches on Saturday – which ended without the kind of large scale clashes that have become so commonplace each weekend – many protesters chanted “See you in Victoria Park!” as they left the streets.

The park has long been used as the staging point for the city’s years of protests and will host Sunday’s demonstration.

Police have given permission for the rally to go ahead but banned a proposed march.

Previous bans in recent weeks have simply been ignored by protesters and have soon led to clashes with riot police.

The protests were sparked by opposition to a plan to allow extraditions to the mainland, but have since morphed into a wider call for democratic rights in the semi-autonomous city.

Under a deal signed with Britain, authoritarian China agreed to allow Hong Kong to keep its unique freedoms when it was handed back in 1997.

But many Hong Kongers feel those freedoms are being eroded, especially since China’s hardline president Xi Jinping came to power.

In the last two months millions of people have hit the streets while clashes have broken out between police and small groups of hardcore protesters.

Battles between police firing tear gas and rubber bullets – and hardcore protesters using rocks, Molotov cocktails and slingshots – have since become routine in a city once renowned for its stability.

Beyond suspending the extradition bill, Beijing and city leader Carrie Lam have shown no desire to meet key demands such as an inquiry into police violence, the complete withdrawal of the bill and an amnesty.

But protesters remain unbowed, despite the arrests of more than 700 people and 11 consecutive weekends of rallies that have won few concessions.

Beijing has turned the screws on Hong Kong’s businesses, pressuring them to toe the line and condemn the protesters.

On Friday, Cathay Pacific announced the shock resignation of CEO Rupert Hogg after the carrier was excoriated by Beijing because some staff supported the protests.

A day later the “Big Four” accountancy firms scrambled to distance themselves from a advert placed in a newspaper purportedly by employees saying they supported the protests.

Ellen & John Lloyd are not on speaking terms
FUNFARE – Ricky Lo (The Philippine Star)

August 17, 2019

celeb ellen john lloyd not on speaking terms

Several days before the grapevine went abuzz that Ellen Adarna and boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz have called it quits after only more than two years of living together, a certain “Maria Elena Adarna” had been posting cryptic messages on Facebook just like what Bea Alonzo did against people that she didn’t name (but were thought to be her boyfriend Gerald Anderson and Julia Barretto). Like “ghosting” (a millennial-coined verb that refers to a person simply vanishing into thin air without any by-your-leave and leaving a partner/friend/whatever clueless), posting “cryptic” messages on social media has become the norm of the day.

A strong woman doesn’t beg. She leaves the moment she feels unwanted.…Strong women would rather be alone with dignity than in a relationship that requires them to sacrifice their own self-respect.

Could the Ellen Adarna have really floated those two “meaningful” messages?

The Bea-Gerald-Julia has exhausted its excitement, the three protagonists having aired their sides, but Ellen and JLC have kept mum about the rumors swirling around them. True to form, actually. They have never confirmed their relationship, not even after Ellen gave birth to their son Elias Modesto and not now when they should be, well, clearing the air.

“Once either of them talks,” noted a keen showbiz observer, “the ‘bomb’ that Ellen and John Lloyd would explode would have a ‘nuclear’ impact far, far bigger than that of Bea-Gerald-Julia. Just wait and see.”

Since Ellen and JLC seem to bask in mystery, all that showbiz observers can rely on are, well, “careless whispers,” such as…

• Before Ellen left for Thailand, she filed a TPO (Temporary Protection Order) against JLC so he cannot, should not, go near his “ex-GF” and their son;

• The “un-couple” are not on speaking terms. As a line from a song goes, silence is golden;

• Ellen is fed up with JLC’s “weirdness;” and

• JLC is okay and “chill” when he gets a little help from his friends.

Anyway, until Ellen and JLC decide to squeak…oops!…speak up, the guessing game will go on and on and on, and it will never be over.

*********************************

Mr. President – Please look into the ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR, GRAVE COERCION and DESTRUCTION of GOVERNMENT PROPERTY of your Presidential Appointee at the Department of Agrarian Reform main office with the name of Cleon Lester Chavez, Director of the DAR Press and Media Relations Office. Last February 11, 2019, said political appointee lost his temper, shouted at the top of his voice, mouthed bad words, punched a number of times the person he was berating (the person moved back and avoided being hit). The Director then punched the wall leading to his office which produced a hole. The Office of the Secretary of DAR has not released any judgement in this case six months after the dastardly act. The Director has remained unrepentant and unpunished up to this time. Thank you.

*********************************

The Office of the President is currently investigating this case six months after the Department of Agrarian Reform FAILED and continuously FAIL to discipline the erring Presidential Appointee.

DAR in the media limelight again 1) President Duterte attacks 2) DAR Director OUTRAGE 3) Land Conversion Alleged PAYOFF

dar du30 sisibakin cropped

President Duterte took the Department of Agrarian Reform to task by mentioning the slow process of land conversion and accusing erring officials that were never named. In a number of Presidential speeches, he threatened to fire the still unknown officials and also gave them the option to retire or leave government service. Weeks after the tirades, no further details were provided nor was the public informed of the resolution of the mentioned case or what happened to the DAR officials.

Then comes to light a six month old ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR by a DAR main office DIRECTOR, head of the DAR public relations arm with ANGER MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS, a VIOLENT OUTBURST and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES (he punched the wall of his office causing a HOLE in the WALL, no pun intended; self inflicted injuries are a cause of concern and should be referred to a psychiatrist, such actions could be a manifestation of depression, unstable mental state and/or suicidal tendencies; immediately after the incident, he should have been placed on a 24 hour suicide watch under competent medical supervision). The Department of Agrarian Reform is taking its sweet time in resolving the issue or coming out with a definitive judgement on the case.

There is also an allegation of PAYOFF in the settlement of a land conversion case.

NBI investigating DAR chief Castriciones for alleged P5M land payoff
Castriciones strongly denies the allegations, and says cases over the issue have been filed against the complainant herself

MANILA, Philippines – Agrarian Secretary John Castriciones is being investigated by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) over an alleged P5-million payoff in a land conversion issue under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

“Perusal of submitted pieces of evidence shows that all complainants and witnesses attested that Sec. Castriciones received a total of of five million pesos in exchange of a Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) order exempting a piece of lot from CARP,” said an NBI progress report dated May 16, 2019.

NBI Director Dante Gierran forwarded the report to the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) on May 17. PACC Commissioner Manny Luna told Rappler on Saturday, July 13, that Castriciones has volunteered to undergo a lifestyle check.

Castriciones confirmed to Rappler on Saturday the lifestyle check and the existence of a pending NBI investigation.

Castrictiones strongly denied the accusation and turned the tables on the complainant, Maricon Doctora-Sayas.

“The complainant Maricon Doctora is a fixer who has been under investigation by the DAR Legal Service (DAR LS) and Anti-Corruption Task Force (DARAC TF) even before February 2019 prior to the execution of her perjurious sworn statement,” Castriciones said.

“For the record, I did not receive any bribe money,” Castriciones told Rappler.

Castriciones said it was Doctora-Sayas, who transacted and received the P5 million and that cases have been filed against her before the Office of the Ombudsman. Castriciones said he even requested an investigation from the Office of the Executive Secretary.

Complaint

The issue involves a certain Glenn Espaldon, who, Castriciones said, filed the first complaint against Doctora-Sayas which prompted an internal investigation within DAR.

“The investigation against her was brought about by the complaint of a certain Glenn Espaldon, who executed a notarized affidavit stating under oath: (1) the details of the transaction between him and Doctora-Sayas; (2) how Doctora-Sayas represented to have the power to secure an approved conversion order; and (3) how she received cash from Espaldon in separate instances amounting to P5 million,” Castriciones said.

Espaldon also submitted sworn statements and documents to the NBI, according to the progress report.

Castriciones said Doctora-Sayas did not respond to the summons sent to her by the DAR investigating team, and proceeded instead to file a complaint against him before the NBI.

“To begin with, there is no pending conversion application with DAR regarding the landholding being referred to by Doctora-Sayas,” Castriciones said, adding that Doctora-Sayas has offered herself to be a state witness.

If proven true, the bribery will fall under Article 210 of the Revised Penal Code and the anti-graft law, according to the NBI.

“I am willing to cooperate with any investigation, and have been doing so for the past few months because I do not fear the truth and I have nothing to hide,” said Castriciones.

Land conversion anomalies

The DAR has come under fire in Malacañang after President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at the slow land conversion process. But Malacañang said Castriciones was still trusted by the president.

In response, Castriciones created a task force that investigated alleged anomalies in land conversion transactions.

“Clearly there are forces working to discredit me before the President and the Filipino people, knowing full well the President’s stand against corruption in government service and how the mere whiff of corruption would be sufficient for the President to remove appointed government officials,” Castriciones said.

Castriciones was appointed to DAR after a controversial stint as undersecretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), where he was accused of corruption by employees.

Castriciones was active in Duterte’s presidential campaign, serving as executive vice president of the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte (MRRD) group, a nationwide volunteer organization. – Rappler.com

There is also an allegation of PAYOFF in the settlement of a land conversion case.

NBI investigating DAR chief Castriciones for alleged P5M land payoff
Castriciones strongly denies the allegations, and says cases over the issue have been filed against the complainant herself

MANILA, Philippines – Agrarian Secretary John Castriciones is being investigated by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) over an alleged P5-million payoff in a land conversion issue under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

“Perusal of submitted pieces of evidence shows that all complainants and witnesses attested that Sec. Castriciones received a total of of five million pesos in exchange of a Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) order exempting a piece of lot from CARP,” said an NBI progress report dated May 16, 2019.

NBI Director Dante Gierran forwarded the report to the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) on May 17. PACC Commissioner Manny Luna told Rappler on Saturday, July 13, that Castriciones has volunteered to undergo a lifestyle check.

Castriciones confirmed to Rappler on Saturday the lifestyle check and the existence of a pending NBI investigation.

Castrictiones strongly denied the accusation and turned the tables on the complainant, Maricon Doctora-Sayas.

“The complainant Maricon Doctora is a fixer who has been under investigation by the DAR Legal Service (DAR LS) and Anti-Corruption Task Force (DARAC TF) even before February 2019 prior to the execution of her perjurious sworn statement,” Castriciones said.

“For the record, I did not receive any bribe money,” Castriciones told Rappler.

Castriciones said it was Doctora-Sayas, who transacted and received the P5 million and that cases have been filed against her before the Office of the Ombudsman. Castriciones said he even requested an investigation from the Office of the Executive Secretary.

Complaint

The issue involves a certain Glenn Espaldon, who, Castriciones said, filed the first complaint against Doctora-Sayas which prompted an internal investigation within DAR.

“The investigation against her was brought about by the complaint of a certain Glenn Espaldon, who executed a notarized affidavit stating under oath: (1) the details of the transaction between him and Doctora-Sayas; (2) how Doctora-Sayas represented to have the power to secure an approved conversion order; and (3) how she received cash from Espaldon in separate instances amounting to P5 million,” Castriciones said.

Espaldon also submitted sworn statements and documents to the NBI, according to the progress report.

Castriciones said Doctora-Sayas did not respond to the summons sent to her by the DAR investigating team, and proceeded instead to file a complaint against him before the NBI.

“To begin with, there is no pending conversion application with DAR regarding the landholding being referred to by Doctora-Sayas,” Castriciones said, adding that Doctora-Sayas has offered herself to be a state witness.

If proven true, the bribery will fall under Article 210 of the Revised Penal Code and the anti-graft law, according to the NBI.

“I am willing to cooperate with any investigation, and have been doing so for the past few months because I do not fear the truth and I have nothing to hide,” said Castriciones.

Land conversion anomalies

The DAR has come under fire in Malacañang after President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at the slow land conversion process. But Malacañang said Castriciones was still trusted by the president.

In response, Castriciones created a task force that investigated alleged anomalies in land conversion transactions.

“Clearly there are forces working to discredit me before the President and the Filipino people, knowing full well the President’s stand against corruption in government service and how the mere whiff of corruption would be sufficient for the President to remove appointed government officials,” Castriciones said.

Castriciones was appointed to DAR after a controversial stint as undersecretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), where he was accused of corruption by employees.

Castriciones was active in Duterte’s presidential campaign, serving as executive vice president of the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte (MRRD) group, a nationwide volunteer organization. – Rappler.com

PhilHealth corruption, incompetence, amateurism and inefficiency KILLING hospitals, private and public

In the three years of the Duterte Administration, there has been a number of top executive and board changes in PhilHealth which indicates the inability to put honest, competent and visionary personnel to manage the state run national health insurance system. Patients, hospitals and physicians bear the brunt of PhilHealth anomalies, quirks and idiosyncrasies. Patients lose their lives for lack of basic medicines and diagnostic tools brought about by hospitals unable to replenish much needed pharmaceutical products or repair x-ray and ultrasound machines due to lack of funds as billions of pesos are locked in PhilHealth time deposits and unreleased to service providers because of convoluted, often changed, mazes to effect reimbursement for hospitalizations rendered ages ago. Even the accounting treatment of amounts payable to hospitals and physicians is HUGELY UNDER REPORTED since PhilHealth is the accuser, judge and executioner in terms of whether submitted claims should be rightfully paid by PhilHealth or not. In other words, filed claims still undergoing evaluation and/or appeal are not considered as ACCOUNTS PAYABLE thus effectively hiding large amounts of indebtedness to hospitals and physicians from their books. Considering PhilHealth has been with us for decades, BILLIONS of PESOS due service providers have been largely unrecognized and ignored. The last few years has seen the transfer of ownership of many big private hospitals from their original physician owners to corporate hospital chains that will only lead to increased hospital rates. PhilHealth largely contributed to the decision to sell out on the basis of mounting receivables and diminishing cash for badly needed rising personnel costs and inability to upgrade facilities and diagnostic machines.

Mounting PhilHealth payables hurting hospitals, says exec demanding P204M

By: Marlon Ramos – Reporter
Philippine Daily Inquirer
August 13, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — Unpaid obligations of Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) have financially weakened many private hospitals in the country, including Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center (CGHMC), according to Dr. James Dy, president of the private hospital.

In a letter to PhilHealth branch manager Henry Almanon on July 17, Dy said the state insurance firm owed CGHMC P204.6 million for the medical services it provided to PhilHealth members from April to June.

In a text message to the Inquirer on Monday, PhilHealth acting president and chief executive officer Ricardo Morales declined to comment, saying he had yet to see Dy’s letter.

“Have not received this letter. Can’t comment yet,” Morales said.

Due, demandable

Of the total unpaid amount, P61.7 million was already “due and demandable” since the hospital had already complied with all the documentary requirements imposed by PhilHealth, according to Dy.

“The very poor collection from your office… results in financial debility not only of our hospital, but for most private hospitals in the health industry,” Dy said in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Inquirer.

“[Since] the medical services on this claim had long been served, it is grossly unfair for the state insurance system to put the financial burden of public health care on private hospital institutions, and then leave us hanging for months and years on end just to get paid,” he said.

Senate probe

He submitted a copy of his letter to Sen. Bong Go, chair of the Senate health committee, and Sen. Richard Gordon, chair of the blue ribbon committee, who will jointly head on Wednesday a legislative inquiry into irregularities in PhilHealth.

In a dialogue in May, Dy said PhilHealth officials had promised CGHMC to settle the debts within 10 days, but they failed to keep their word.

PhilHealth, a government-owned and -controlled corporation mandated to provide social health insurance to Filipinos, has been under the microscope after the Inquirer published a series of investigative reports on the alleged massive corruption involving its officials and unscrupulous owners of private health facilities.

In a privilege speech on July 29, Sen. Panfilo Lacson claimed PhilHealth had already lost as much as P154 billion to overpayments and other fraudulent schemes.

Lacson said the state insurance company was financially ill as it suffered a net operating loss of P29.1 billion from 2013 to 2017 due to fund mismanagement and corruption.

In his letter, Dy pointed out that the delay in PhilHealth’s payment “negatively impacts the provision of quality health care” for Filipinos.

Citing hospital records, he said PhilHealth paid a measly P14.9 million to CGHMC for the medical services it rendered from June 14 to July 17.

But this amount, he added, was just 7 percent of PhilHealth’s total unpaid obligations to the hospital.

He said PhilHealth’s latest filing system necessitated the hospital to have another program and “reprocess” all the forms it had submitted for insurance claims worth P142.9 million.

Moreover, he said, PhilHealth had sent back collection forms to CGHMC “based on unsubstantiated reasons,” such as the unreadability of statement of accounts. 

Incompatible

This problem was caused by the “incompatibility” in the electronic processing systems of PhilHealth and its technology provider, Eurolink, according to Dy.

“Any incompatibility on both systems that results in poor readability is beyond the control of the hospital, and hence, should not be blamed on the hospital,” he said.

“Simply put, the hospital should not suffer the adverse consequence of poor data integration from Eurolink to PhilHealth,” he added.

Dy said the passage of the UHC law, which required a budget of P257 billion for the first year of its implementation, warranted the removal of “organizational bureaucracy” in PhilHealth to ensure the timely payment of hospital dues.

He said PhilHealth’s critical role in attaining the law’s goals “will never be realized unless industry-wide collection is improved dramatically.”

“The confidence of the various sectors in PhilHealth’s credibility to successfully implement the provisions of this new law rests on your capability to finally clear away PhilHealth’s transactional backlog,” Dy reminded Almanon. —With a report from Jovic Yee

 

DAR in the media limelight again 1) President Duterte attacks 2) DAR Director OUTRAGE 3) Land Conversion Alleged PAYOFF

dar du30 sisibakin cropped

President Duterte took the Department of Agrarian Reform to task by mentioning the slow process of land conversion and accusing erring officials that were never named. In a number of Presidential speeches, he threatened to fire the still unknown officials and also gave them the option to retire or leave government service. Weeks after the tirades, no further details were provided nor was the public informed of the resolution of the mentioned case or what happened to the DAR officials.

Then comes to light a six month old ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR by a DAR main office DIRECTOR, head of the DAR public relations arm with ANGER MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS, a VIOLENT OUTBURST and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES (he punched the wall of his office causing a HOLE in the WALL, no pun intended; self inflicted injuries are a cause of concern and should be referred to a psychiatrist, such actions could be a manifestation of depression, unstable mental state and/or suicidal tendencies; immediately after the incident, he should have been placed on a 24 hour suicide watch under competent medical supervision). The Department of Agrarian Reform is taking its sweet time in resolving the issue or coming out with a definitive judgement on the case.

There is also an allegation of PAYOFF in the settlement of a land conversion case.

Adverse COA findings support Duterte’s misgivings about Land Bank of the Philippines

By Ben Rosario, Manila Bulletin

Adverse audit observations noted by the Commission on Audit (COA) seemed to support President Rodrigo Duterte’s misgivings about the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) which he conveyed in his State of the Nation Address on Monday.

In the 2018 annual audit report (AAR) recently released by COA, auditors noted that LBP’s credit card receivables account amounting to P401.92 million as of December 31, 2019.

In the executive summary of the audit report, COA also drew attention to the Financial Statement indicating that the LBP’s Fair Value Through Other Comprehensive Income/Available-for-sale investments account included undelivered 3,366,800 Meralco shares.

“Likewise corresponding cash dividends earned amounting to P403.481 million and P358.446 million as at December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively and property dividends of 9,488,394 shares of stock in Rockwell Land Corporation were still unpaid to LBP,” the audit agency said.

In his SONA, Duterte scolded the LBP, alleging that it had been focusing too much on commercial operations. As such, the President said the government bank had failed to help the farmers and fisherfolk it was meant to primarily help.

“I will give you until the end of July to give me a plan or else I will ask Congress to reconfigure you or whatnot… if there is no viable plan for the farmer then it is all commercial transaction, I plan to abolish it,” said the chief executive.

The AAR revealed that audit suspensions and disallowances have reached P2,871,717,704.84 that included P2.81 billion in unauthorized disbursement involving Priority Development Assistance Fund of congressional members and the Development Acceleration Program of the Aquino administration.

“The other suspensions and disallowances are payments of benefits and allowances of LBP Board of Directors, officers and employees which were not in accordance with existing laws, rules and regulations,” the audit report stated.

State auditors also took notice of the P164.469 million in past due loans under the Livelihood Loan System and the LBP Mobile Loan Saver that remained uncollected “due to non-compliance with the remedial actions for past due accounts.”

The LBP was warned that this exposed the bank to “possible credit losses.”

“Non-recovery of the loan could also affect the financial performance and deprives the bank of additional funds and the income that could be generated therefrom, had it been timely collected,” COA said.

On its credit card operations, COA disclosed that there have been delays in the recording of payments of Mastercard and VISA amounting to P50.043 million.

This and other operational lapses, the audit agency said, affected the faithful representation of the Credit Card Receivables amounting to P401.929 million as of December 31, 2018 which could not be ascertained due to the General Ledger and Subsidiary Ledger balances aggregating P734.971 million.

In response to the audit finding, the LBP management admitted delays in the reconciliation reports, saying that this was due to the “migration of VISA credit card to MasterCarBusiness Integrated and its subsequent upgrade to Mastercard Integrated.”

FAST FACTS: What you should know about Landbank

(3rd UPDATE) President Duterte threatens to shut down the government bank in his 4th SONA, saying it’s acting more like a commercial bank instead of focusing on farmers and fishermen

August 05, 2019

The President threatened to shut down the bank’s operations. “You are supposed to finance agricultural enterprises and endeavors. Bakit wala? (Why is there none?) Why can’t you just buy a few wagons or whatever? Go to the countryside and ask the people if there are cooperatives, tulungan ninyo (help them) to form one,” he said in his speech.

Since its creation in 1963, Landbank has emerged as one of the biggest banks in the country. Here are some fast facts about the government bank.

1. Landbank’s creation and primary function

Landbank was formed under Republic Act 3844 or the Agricultural Land Reform Code in August 1963. The main function of the bank is to be the financing agency for the government’s acquisition of agricultural estates for division and resale to small landholders, as well as the purchase of the land-holding by the agricultural lessee.

2. It was eventually granted universal banking powers in 1973

Ten years after its creation, Landbank was granted universal or expanded commercial banking powers through Presidential Decree 251 to remedy the bank’s “deficient and inadequate” capitalization and organization structure. Former president Ferdinand Marcos cited the bank’s failure to meet the requirements of the agrarian reform program, so he included granting short-, medium- and long-term loans to agricultural, industrial, home-building projects, and other productive enterprises to Landbank’s powers.

In 1977, the bank underwent a major reorganization and formed 3 main sectors: agrarian, banking, and operations. Today, Landbank’s role is not limited to the provision of credit assistance to farmers and fisherfolk. It is also an implementing agency of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, as well as an official depository of government funds.

As of July 2019, Landbank has a total of 401 branches and 2,046 automated teller machines nationwide.

3. Landbank now belongs to the top 10 universal/commercial banks in the Philippines

In Duterte’s 4th SONA, in jest, he called Landbank the “number one” commercial bank in the Philippines. “You know, you are called Land Bank but you are now the number one commercial bank in the Philippines. What the heck is happening to you?” Duterte said a little over the one-hour-and-20-minute mark into his speech.

While Landbank is not the leading bank in the Philippines, based on 5 metrics, it is included in the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ (BSP) top 10 rankings of universal/commercial banks as of March 2019: assets, stockholder’s equity, deposits, loans, and return on equity.

Landbank is the 3rd biggest universal/commercial bank with total assets of P1.9 trillion. Its stockholder’s equity – the amount of assets the bank has minus its liabilities – stands at P136.5 billion, while its total deposits as of March 2019 reached P1.7 trillion – second to the Sy family-owned BDO Unibank’s P2.3 trillion. In the same period, Landbank also had P850.8 billion in its total loans and receivables portfolio.

Meanwhile, the bank’s return on equity ratio stands at 13.25% – only the 8th highest out of the 45 universal/commercial banks listed by the BSP. Return on equity is a known measure of profitability and of how well the company generates income growth by utilizing the equity investments of its shareholders.

4. The Duterte administration stopped the Landbank-Development Bank of the Philippines merger

Former president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III signed and approved the proposed merger of the two government banks in February 2016 through Executive Order No. 198. Under this EO, Landbank was supposed to be the surviving entity between the two banks.

EO 198’s goal was to increase Landbank’s capital stock to P200 billion from P25 billion and to strengthen the financial capabilities of both banks while avoiding unnecessary overlaps of their respective functions.

However, the new administration stopped the merger in September 2016, led by the Governance Commission for Government-Owned and -Controlled Corporations (GCG). Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III pointed out that the two banks serve different functions: Landbank for the agriculture sector, and DBP, for industry.

5. Landbank’s loan portfolio and its compliance with the Agri-Agra Law

Under the Republic Act 10000 or the Agri-Agra Reform Credit Act, banks are mandated to allot 25% of their loan portfolios for agriculture and fisheries – 10% for agrarian reform projects and 15% for agriculture.

Landbank’s First Vice President for Corporate Affairs Catherine Rowena Villanueva said the combined loans extended to the agriculture sector and the its mandated sector, which includes agrarian reform beneficiaries and their associations as well as small farmers, reached 27.45% of the bank’s total loan portfolio of P799.64 billion as of June 30, 2019.

Data from BSP show that the compliance of universal and commercial banks are way below the minimum amount required, with total compliance for agrarian reform credit only reaching 1.01% of its minimum required amount as of end-March 2019, and only 13.27% for agricultural credit.

But Villanueva said Landbank remains to be the biggest lender to the sector. “While growth of the agriculture sector remained stagnant for the past 10 years, averaging only 1.11%, Landbank’s loans to the sector continued to increase at an average of 10.94%,” she added.

Economist and former socioeconomic planning secretary Cielito Habito argued that Duterte’s scolding is “misplaced” since Landbank is expected to be profitable just like other commercial banks and is still subject to the same rules imposed by the BSP.

“Like it or not, lending in an agricultural sector dominated by smallholders is always risky business anywhere, and even more so in a calamity-prone country like ours. That’s why commercial banks prefer to pay the fine for not complying with the Agri-Agra law, rather than lend the mandated amounts of loans to small farmers and agrarian reform beneficiaries,” he wrote.

Landbank also reported in the 1st quarter of 2019 that its loans to the agricultural sector grew 12% year-on-year to P13 billion. This covers 128,496 small farmers and fishermen.

6. Landbank’s actions to Duterte’s threats

Duterte has been urging Landbank to focus more on the farmers and fishermen even before his 4th SONA. He earlier threatened to look into the finances of the bank in 2018.

A day after President Duterte threatened to abolish Landbank, the bank said it is submitting a detailed report of its plans and programs for farmers. The bank also turned over 354,783 hectares of land to the Department of Agrarian Reform on July 25.

Prior to this, the bank had committed in December 2016 to loan P115 billion to small farmers and fishermen by 2022 – which triples the P37.9 billion recorded that year.  – Rappler.com
