On
July
10,
2011,
I
communicated
with
SENATOR

by
emailrinforminghim
about
an anomalous
transaction
involving
theoverpriced
purchase
of
a
16.2-hectare
agriculturalproperty
in
Barangay
San
Isidro,
Jaro.
Iloilo
City by city
officials
led by then
City
Mayor
Jerry
P. Trenas.
7.
In
that
email,
I
narrated
to SENATOR
DRILON
that
the
city
government,using his
PDAFwhich
was
coursed
through
the
National
Housing
Authority (NHA),
boughtthe
aericulturalpropertyfor

BIR
zonal
value
for

SENATOR
DRILON,
who
used
the
initials
SFMD
as
signature
for
his email,mentioned the
"airport". It
refers
to
the
negotiation
with
landowners
in
the
towns
of
Sta.
Barbara
and
Cabatuan,
Iloilo
for
the
purchase
of
more than200
hectares
of
agricultural
lands
which
subsequently became
the
site
of
thenew
Iloilo
Airport
of
International
Standards.
The negotiations
took
placesometime
in
2002
and
2003.
I
was
involved in
the negotiations
inmy
capacity
as
Provineial Administrator of
Iloilo.
10.
The
"airport"
agricultural
lands were
productive
lands.
And
as
compensation
for
thefarmers
who
weregoing
to
lose
their
source
of livelihood,
the
national
government
agreed
to
compensate
them
for
4.8timesthe
fuir
market value
for their
lands.

1.
In this
case
for
the
relocation
site,
the
properly
was
an
idle
agricultural
land,proneto
floods,
and
at
that
time
i.naccessible
to
transportation
and
public
utilities.
The
purchase
price
was22.28times the
fair
marketvalue.
12.Thenext
day,
July
11,2011,
I
emailed2
SpNatOR
DRILON
a
copy
of
a
newspaper
story' I
had
written
about
the overpriced
purchase
of
the
relocation
site
which
was
paid
from
his
PDAF
coursed
through
the
NHA.
13.
SENATOR
DRILON
became
involved inthis
transaction
because
atthattime,
NHA
had
no available funds
to
release
to the
Iloilo
City
Government
as
assistance
for
the
purchase
of
a
relocation
site.
During
one
of
his
visitsto
Iloilo
City,
Iloilo
Cityofficials
led by then
City
Mayor
Jerry
P.Trenas
met
with
him to
seek
his help.
14.
I
waspresent
during that meeting sometime
in March
or
April
2005. That meetingremains fresh
in my
memory
because
it
markedthe
firsttime
that
Mayor
Trenas
publicly
met
with
SENATOR
DRILON in
Iloilo
City
for
a
meeting.
15.
It
was
public
knowledge
that SENATOR
DRILON
was locked
in
a
rivalry with
thenDepartment
of
Justice
Secretary
Raul
M.
Gonzalez,
and
Mayor
Trenas
was
identifiedwith
the latter.
16.
Still,
SENATOR
DRILON
agreed
to
help
and
directed
his
staff
to
prepare
thepaperwork
to
assign
the amount
of
P63
million
to
the
National Housing
Authority
from
his
PDAF.
Theamount was subsequently
released
in two
tranches.17.
This
isvalidated
by
a
news storypublished
in
The
News Today
in
its
November
14,20054
issue
which
reportedthat
an
amount
of
P27
million
as
initial
fund
was released
to the
Iloilo
City
government.
18,
It
is
manifestly
clear
fromthis
exchange
of
email
correspondence
thatSENATOR
DRILON
came
to know,
if
he
did
not
know
yet,about
a
highly
anomalous transaction
with
the overprieed
purchase
of
the
relocation
site
utilizing
his
PDAF.
19.
His knowledge
and awareness about
theanomaloustransactionwas
increased
with
the story
I
emailed
was
the
first
segment
of
a
three-part
investigative
reportpublished
in
The
News
Today,
a
newspaper
of
general
circulationin
Iloilo
City
and
the entireWestemVisayas region.
20.That
story contained detailed
information
about
how
the anomalous transaction wasperfected.21.
OnJuly
20,2011,
the
issuebecame
public
after
Mr.
Rommel
Ynionfiled
a case
for
plunderagainst
Trenas,
who
was
by then Representative
for
the lone
district
of
Iloilo
City,
and
other
city officials
before the
Office
of
the Ombudsman
involving
that
transaction.
22.The
criminal
and
administrativecomplaint
was
entitled, "Rommel
S.
Ynion
versus
Jerry
P. Trenas,
Katherine
Tingson,
Nelson
Parreno,

23. Despitebeing
informed
aboutthe
glaringoverpricingin
the
purchase
of
the
relocation
site
utilizing
his
PDAF,SENATOR
DRILON
keptquiet,
did nothing,
