PRELIMINARY STATEMENT ________________________
3.On 1 July 2010, Complainants Rep. Teddy Casino and Bayan MunaParty-list first filed a Complaint with the Department of Justice (DOJ) againstGloria Macapagal-Arroyo for violation of Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft andCorrupt Practices Act, RA 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials, and the Revised Penal Code committed in the course of theanomalous National Broadband Network-ZTE Corporation project in 2006-2007.4.On 30 July 2010, President Benigno Aquino III ordered the creationof a Truth Commission to be headed by former Chief Justice Hilario Davide. ThisTruth Commission was created for the purpose of investigating the allegations of corruption, poll fraud and human rights violations of former President GloriaMacapagal-Arroyo. As such, the Department of Justice, through the Office of Secretary Leila De Lima, deferred action on our Complaint against GloriaMacapagal-Arroyo and transferred the same to the Truth Commission.5.However, certain groups challenged the constitutionality of thecreation of this Truth Commission before the Supreme Court, preventing from thestart the accomplishment of its supposed duties and performance of its functions.6.On 26 July 2011 or after one year of the creation of the TruthCommission, the Supreme Court ruled with finality that the Truth Commission isunconstitutional.7.During his State of the Nation Address (SONA) on 25 July 2011,President Aquino appointed Conchita Carpio-Morales, who is a former Justice of the Supreme Court, as the new Ombudsman. Ombudsman Carpio-Morales tookher oath of office on 27 July 2011.8.Complainants recently decided to withdraw their Letter Complaintwith the DOJ considering that the DOJ has not officially taken cognizance of thesaid letter complaint as it had transmitted the same to the defunct TruthCommission, and to instead file this present Joint Complaint-Affidavit with thenew Ombudsman, with the inclusion of additional complainants and respondentsabove-named. A copy of Complainants’ “Motion to Withdraw Complaint” filedbefore the DOJ is hereto attached as Annex “C”.8.1The accusations in this complaint are based mainly on thefacts gathered by the Senate’s Committee on Accountability of PublicOfficers and Investigations (Blue Ribbon Committee) during itsinvestigation of the highly anomalous National Broadband Network-ZTECorporation project, which facts were contained in its Senate CommitteeReport No. 743 (
ANNEX “D”
), and other authentic records that can beverified using existing records and further investigation.
