PROTESTANT / COUNTER-PROTESTEE PIMENTEL’SMEMORANDUM
[ON THE PILOT PRECINCTS OF THE COUNTER-PROTEST]
COMES NOW the Protestant/Counter-Protestee Pimentel, by himself, untothis Honorable Tribunal most respectfully submits his Memorandum on the PilotAreas of Protestee/Counter-Protestant Zubiri’s Counter-Protest, pursuant to SETResolution No. 07-100, a copy of which was received on April 26, 2010, to wit:
I.PUTTING THE ZUBIRI COUNTER-PROTEST IN PROPER PERSPECTIVE
This Counter-Protest is Protestee Zubiri’s Protest, not Protestant Pimentel’s.(Henceforth Protestant/Counter-Protestee Pimentel will be referred to herein as simply“Pimentel” and Protestee/Counter-Protestant Zubiri as simply “Zubiri”.)
It is therefore Zubiri’s obligation to prove his allegations.
Because of the sheer absurd size of Protestee Zubiri’s Counter-Protest, bordering on the criminal, imagine spending P70 Million just to stay in office(computed at P1,000 to be spent per protested precinct), there is a need to put things in proper perspective.
