Capilion Project Clark

In a statement issued Monday, Clark Development Corp. (CDC) said Capilion has been planning to develop the area as a mixed-used facility that could be used for business process outsourcing (BPO), residential, commercial, and retail enterprises. The proposed development will be completed in three phases by the end of 2018.

Singapore-based Capilion Corp. Pte. Ltd. has committed to invest P7 billion for the long-term lease and development of a three-hectare lot at the Clark Freeport in Pampanga.

“This will be the biggest contract to be signed by the new administration in terms of employment generation with a projection of 75,000 that can be accommodated within seven years,” noted CDC president Arthur Tugade.

Capilion Corp. was established in 2006 in Singapore to act as an international private equity and corporate finance advisory firm. It is part of the Capilion Group of Companies, Capilion Financial Ltd. and Capilion RE Engineering Ltd.

The Capilion Group has businesses involved in private equity, corporate services, real estate, financial securities, ship ownership, shipping and shipbuilding, infrastructure development and clean and renewable energy projects.

It also has various stakes in different countries such as securities industry in Indonesia, ferry project in China, biofuel in Indonesia, infrastructure in Kyrgyzstan, monorail project in India, and various other real estate projects in Southeast Asia.

Following the signing of the agreement, Capilion presented to CDC demand drafts worth $4.9 million (approximately P215 million) to represent the firm’s advance lease, security deposit and performance security plus a reservation for another 8,639 square meters adjacent to its property.
Capilion also presented a bank certification confirming the firm’s fund of P2 billion for the property development in Clark.

According to CDC, the agreement signed by Capilion required the Singapore firm to sign an anti-graft undertaking and exert effort to hire indigenous people (IP) and persons with disabilities.

Jerry Pelayo: Binay has the ‘heart’ for people

The former president of the Pampanga Mayors' League (PML) has renewed his commitment to support the presidential bid of Vice- President Jejomar Binay.

In a press conference at the Fontana Residences here recently, former Candaba Mayor and PML president Jerry Pelayo said Binay has the "heart" and genuine concern for the Filipino people.

He added that "Binay's advantage is that as former mayor, he knows what local government units (LGUs) need."

"A few years ago, I already saw in Vice-President Binay his love for the people, especially the poor ones. His plan to empower the LGUs, notably mayors and governors, will bring tremendous economic growth," said Pelayo.

The latest survey of Pulse Asia showed Binay still leading in the poll among probable presidential candidates. The former Makati mayor had 26 percent.

Asked by journalists what's the role of Pelayo at his camp, Binay said, "he is a CSB."

"CSB means certified sipsip kay Binay," added Binay in a jest, eliciting smiles from journalists.

"I don't back out from any fight and I am healthy as you can see," said Binay

Chito Miranda and Neri Naig scandal photo and video

Scandalous video of Parokya Ni Edgar front man Chito Miranda and former ABS-CBN Star Circle Quest talent Neri Naig has been leaked online after the allegedly robbing incident in the singer’s house.

Neri entered showbiz through ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest. Her life story was featured in Maalaala Mo Kaya in 2004, where she played as herself. She was recently seen in a guest role in the Kapamilya series, Annaliza.

The said home-made video shows the two having an intimate moment not for public consumption. It was uploaded on YouTube early Saturday but immediately removed after few hours, unfortunately, screen grabs of the video were already reposted on different social networking sites and blogs.

According to the Parokya ni Edgar vocalist, a private video of him and Neri has been leaked and he apologizes to their respective families about it.

On Instagram, Chito posted: “We are truly saddened by the fact na may nag-leak na private video of me and my girlfriend, Neri Naig. Humihingi po ako ng paumanhin sa mga pamilya namin for this unfortunate incident. Thank you for your prayers.”

“Thanks for all your prayers and encouraging messages. Our hard drive was stolen from our room in our house along with several other stuff…” he added.

A collage of the screencaps, both censored and uncensored, are now easily searchable on Twitter.

Village official hits Pamintuan camp

A village official here has assailed the camp of Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan for questioning the credibility of barangay leaders in connection with the job order employees issue.

“Napakababa ng tingin nila sa aming mga barangay official,” said Barangay Lourdes Northwest kagawad and Councilmen’s League of Angeles City (CLAC) Vice President for External Affairs William David.

The Pamintuan administration has included the relatives of several barangay officials in the list of job order employees without their knowledge, according to David.

“Tinatawag nila kaming sinungaling at kinekwestiyon ang aming kredibilidad,” David said, “Ano ba ang ibig sabihin ng ‘kredibilidad’ para sa kanila? Yun lang bang mayayaman na tulad nila ang mayroong kredibilidad o ang mga mahihirap na tapat na nagseserbisyo sa publiko?”

Earlier, David, along with several other barangay officials, aired their complaints regarding the inclusion of their relatives in the payroll of the Pamintuan administration’s job order employees, even when their relatives had no knowledge about it and have never received any salary from the City Government.

Pamintuan’s camp has previously denied such allegations and claimed that the documents containing the job order appointments, in which the names of the barangay officials’ relatives are listed, may have been forged.

“Nagbabanta pa sila sa radyo na idedemanda kaming mga kagawad,” David said, “Ang hamon ko sa kanila, kung talagang totoo ang sinasabi nila at kami ang nagsisinungaling, bakit hindi pa sila magdemanda ng tuluyan. Hindi na nila kailangang ulit-ulitin sa radyo ang pagbabanta nila.”

David challenged the Pamintuan camp to explain how all 40 names of the job order employees under the Philhealth Program of the Office of the Mayor ended up being names of relatives and friends of barangay officials, none of whom knew about their inclusion in the job order appointments.

“Kung isang pangalan lang yun, pwede pang sabihin na kapangalan lang ng asawa o kapatid ng kagawad,” said David, “Pero kung lahat ng pangalan sa listahan ay kamag-anak ng kagawad na hindi naman alam na nakalista pala sila bilang JO, siguro naman hindi na natin masasabing nagkataon lang ito.”

“Mali ba na magkomento at ilaban ng mga kagawad ang kanilang Karapatan ngayong ginagamit sa katiwalian ang pangalan namin at ng aming mga kamag-anak?” David said.

Earlier, Barangay Cutcut kagawad and CLAC Vice President Roy Ogurida and Barangay Salapungan Kagawad Renato Coronel also released a statement denying any knowledge about the inclusion of the names of their sister and wife, respectively, in the list of job order employees.

EdPam sees ‘close fight;’ Tarzan says ‘no contest’

Mayor Edgardo “EdPam” Pamintuan noted recently that the fight for the mayoralty post here will be “close” and “will not be a walk in the park” as he takes on the challenge posed by first district Representative Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin.

Pamintuan, who is seeking reelection, and Lazatin, who has shifted his sights from the congressional bid to the mayoralty seat he once occupied, have been in tangles recently, exchanging brickbats and hurling accusations at each other even before the filing of certificates of candidacy, and have reached the point of a call for a public debate.

During the recent “Kapihan with EdPam” at a coffee shop in Balibago, the incumbent mayor told media: “It will be a close fight in 2013. I’m sure 45 days before election time ay bakbakan na. That is, kung aabot siya [Lazatin]. It will not be a walk in the park though. I know that.”

“Tatalunin ko siya. Napasubo siya sa akin. He knows and AngeleƱos know that everything I promised, I delivered,” said Pamintuan.

However, Lazatin’s chief aide, IC Calaguas, shrugged off Pamintuan’s statements.
She said: “To us, it remains ‘no contest’ at all. The accomplishments of Representative Lazatin will speak for themselves kahit sinasabi ng kabilang kampo na hindi siya umiikot. That’s precisely the reason. Sila ang dapat umikot because our record proves that in the recent congressional race, we got 80,000 votes from Angeles City alone, considering the city has an estimated 150,000 voters. And our supporters are still there.”

“No contest,” Calaguas told Sun.Star Pampanga on Tuesday.

On the challenge for a public debate, Pamintuan said, “A debate is fine with me but I will not be the one to initiate it. At this point, I continue to work and as much as possible, leave politics behind. But because of the many accusations the Lazatin camp is throwing against me, I had to go on air [at dwRW 95.1 FM’s Talakayan recently] to clear them because there is no truth whatsoever to the opposing camps’ allegations.”
“Wala akong ginawang masama sa kanya. But Tarzan is Tarzan and Edpam is Edpam. I do not lie,” Pamintuan said.

But Calaguas said Lazatin is ready for a debate “anytime, anywhere.”
“The congressman is ready. Basta clear ang topics and the ground rules and regulations are laid down. Of course, Rep. Lazatin would want to tackle the corruption and bankruptcy issues the most. Para ma-settle na rin nila lahat and to prove who’s really lying and who’s not,” Calaguas said.

Cong. Lazatin welcome the possibility of having lawyer Bryan Nepomuceno to run as councilor

First District Representative Carmelo Lazatin welcome the possibility of having lawyer Bryan Nepomuceno to run as councilor in Lazatin’s team in 2013.

Irish Calaguas, Lazatin's senior adviser for political affairs, quoted the lawmaker as saying that he will not be including a vice mayor in his lineup and will not be supporting any congressional representative for the district in the 2013 elections.

“Congressman [Lazatin] has already decided to run and there is no changing that decision,” Calaguas said, adding that they have not talked to any other politician regarding Lazatin’s political line up.

Lazatin’s camp is also optimistic of the usual support from their grassroots supporters in Angeles City come 2013.

“We are not supporting anybody and Congressman [Lazatin] is set to run for mayor without any vice mayor except for three councilors under his team,” Calaguas said, adding that the politicians to run under the said positions are yet to be identified by their camp.

First District Representative Carmelo Lazatin said he will not be endorsing a vice mayor and a congressman when he campaigns for the city mayor in next year elections.

Lazatin said his lineup is only set for only three councilor’s seats with his team welcoming the possibility of having Lawyer Bryan Matthew Nepomuceno as among his councilors in the 2013 race.

However, Calaguas said they welcome the possibility of having lawyer Bryan Nepomuceno to run as councilor in Lazatin’s team in 2013.

Nepomuceno is the son of former city councilor and League of Barangays president Robin Lumanlan Nepomuceno and Cutcut village chief Cecilia Nepomuceno.

Calaguas was quick to reiterate that Lazatin will not be supporting any congressional candidate in 2013.
Rumors of Lazatin's plans spread early last week while Pamintuan was in the United States facilitating donations for the city's health programs through World Medical Relief Inc. that Lazatin will run for mayor of this city in 2013.

Both Pamintuan and his supporters in Angeles City were surprised by the lawmaker's move.
“He is my ally and I will campaign for him and like what everybody in my city knows. I was never what he pictured me. I am a loyal friend and ally,” Pamintuan said.

Lazatin’s camp said the sudden pronouncement came after the alleged withdrawal of support of Pamintuan to the lawmaker’s previous re-election bid.

Calaguas earlier said Pamintuan is reportedly supporting Vice Governor Joseller Guiao, who recently aired his congressional bid in the said district.

“We don’t want to be ‘double-crossed’ again,” Calaguas said.

Pamintuan, for his part, was surprised by the move of Lazatin.

"Never in my mind, as my past political history would bare me out, never will I leave my friends and ally in any political contest," Pamintuan told Sun.Star Pampanga.

Pamintuan said he will remain a friend and supporter of Congressman Lazatin.
