Dear Usec. Nicanor Faeldon,
I’m sure, you’ve been asking yourself, “Bakit naman ganun si Sen. Hontiveros? Why would she think that I will resign from my post as the BuCor chief?”
It’s not as if you committed serious blunders and grave sins naman, right?
Or that you’ve been incompetent in the performance of your job.
You attended the Senate committee hearing seemingly unprepared, so you had to constantly depend on your staff to answer the Senators’ queries.
On your watch, pinakawalan ang tatlo sa mga nang-rape at pumatay sa Chiong sisters noong 1997. Pati na rin ang ilang big-time Chinese drug traffickers. And, if not because of the massive public outrage –both online and in the streets, malamang nagpapa-party na rin ngayon sa labas ng kulungan si dating Calauan Mayor Antonio Sanchez who was sentenced to 7 counts of reclusion perpetua for masterminding in 1993 the abduction, rape and murder of Eileen Sarmenta and her companion, Allan Gomez.
All these, sa kabila ng nakasaad sa GCTA Law na exempted sa mga makikinabang sa batas ang mga convicts who have been “recidivists, habitual delinquents, escapees and those charged with heinous crimes.”
Huwag na po nating banggitin ang mga bintang that you accepted bribes from those convicts who were released early dahil sa nasabing batas, or ang pagpatay recently sa isang jail official who was in charge of safekeeping the documents in the bureau kasama ang mga release papers nina Sanchez at ng mga drug traffickers that you signed.
Before you were transferred to the Bureau of Corrections in November 2018, you were appointed to two other government positions.
At, doon, your service was also tainted by controversies of corruption and incompetence.
As the chief of the Bureau of Customs, you allegedly received a welcome gift of P107 million when you assumed the meaty position. May mga allegations din na nakinabang ka nang malaki sa controversial na “tara” system sa bureau. Ang anomalya na kinasangkutan mo that really thrust you into the limelight, however, ay ang bilyun-bilyong halaga ng shabu from China na nakapuslit sa Customs right under your nose.
Lumabas na there was clearly conspiracy in bringing that 6.4 billion worth of shabu shipment into the country. Ang sabi pa nga ni Sen. Gordon, dalawang bagay lang ‘yun. As the BoC chief, you were either grossly incompetent or corrupt.
I was inclined to say, “Both.”
Hindi pa man natatapos ang mga imbestigasyon sa nasabing shabu shipment, you were reappointed by Malacañang as deputy administrator in the Office of Civil Defense.
When asked about the seeming haste to reappoint you to another government post, Andanar said that it was to give you the chance to prove your critics wrong.
Wow, napakalakas mo talaga sa presidente, Sir!
Ang iba nating mga kababayan, mapaghinalaan lang na drug user, natu-tokhang na. Maisabit lang sa katiwalian, nasisipa na sa serbisyo.
Pero, ikaw, binigyan pa ng chance na linisin ang iyong pangalan.
Pangalang pati ang iyong anak na si Nicanor Faeldon, Jr. ay walang patumanggang sinira when he was nabbed in Bicol last December and charged with “maintaining a drug den.”
Sana, Sir, ire-consider mo ang naging sagot mo sa tanong ni Sen. Hontiveros because, quite frankly, isa ka sa mga patuloy na nagpapatunay that, under this administration, pawang rhetorics lang ang mga statements na “I hate drugs!” at “I have zero tolerance for corruption!”
That’s all for now, Usec. Faeldon. Goodluck to you!
Nagpapayo lang po,
