REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES Third Judicial Region MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURT OF MEYCAUAYAN – Branch I PROVINCE OF BULACAN
Hon. EDWARD D. PACIS, Presiding Judge, Municipal Trial Court, Marilao, Bulacan Attention: Mr. Rolando M. Halili, Clerk of Court I Re: Criminal Case No. 98-27027, “People of the Philippine vs. Judge Florentino V. Floro, Jr. & Joselito V. Floro” – March 2, 2009 Letter of Mr. Rolando M. Halili to Hon. Edward D. Pacis Mr. Rolando M. Halili’s Violations of - A.M. No. 03-06-13-SC, “Code of Conduct of Court Personnel,” Gross Misconduct, Gross Ignorance of the Law and S.C. Circulars, Bias, Partiality and Acting as Lawyer for the Complainant Your Honor,
I respectfully ACKNOWLEDGE receipt of the – March 2, 2009 Letter of Mr.
Rolando M. Halili, today, March 31, 2009. In his unauthorized letter, Mr. Halili unlawfully and without any permission from the Office of the City Prosecutor of Meycauayan and/or the Office of Provincial Prosecutor of Bulacan, who both has and had, respectively, the direction and control of the prosecution of criminal cases, had stated “Please be guided us of your further action.” Such letter requesting Court guidance for himself and another (as the word “us”), from the Presiding Judge of the case is anathema to our system of justice. A Branch Clerk of Court has only ministerial functions and has no duty, obligation, business or power to issue and release any letter to any Judge regarding a pending case. The Fiscal has not filed any motion, nor the private complainant amid the pending Certiorari-Injunction-LRC cases at Branches 16 & 17, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan, to wit: consolidated Civil Cases Nos. P-405-98 & 938-M-98, & 1132M-99 (in which a pending Motion for Execution, etc. is being heard). On November 23, 2005, the Honorable Eranio G. Cedilo, Sr. had inhibited in handling the instant criminal case against undersigned, since Mr. Rolando Halili among others, was accused by herein accused, as co-conspirator of Retired Judge Orlando Paguio; undersigned submitted evidence of corruption against Judge Paguio and Mr. Halili in Civ. Case No. 1132-M-99:
“However, considering that the Clerk of Court of Branch I, Mr. Rolando M. Halili and the rest of the staff have been likewise accused as co-conspirators of Judge Paguio, it would be more prudent that the incumbent Presiding Judge of Br. I, Meycauayan, be excluded form the raffle.” (The November 23, 2005 Letter of Judge Cedillo to Judge P. Dime is attached as Annex A hereof). Such issuance and release of the March 2, 2009 Letter (attached as Annex I hereof, for reference) is palpable violations of - A.M. No. 03-06-13-SC, “Code of Conduct of Court Personnel,” Gross Misconduct, Gross Ignorance of the Law and S.C. Circulars, Bias, Partiality and Acting as Lawyer for the Complainant, for the following reasons: 1. As stated by Mr. Halili, Your Honor was designated Presiding Judge of this criminal case on August 28, 2006, by deceased Executive Judge Petrita B. Dime. 2. NOTE however, that in Civil Case No. 1132-M-99, the Hon. Ma. Theresa/OIC/Clerk of Court of Br. 17, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan, on March 8 & April 5, 2008, had issued an Order and Writ of Execution, respectively, directing the implementation of Judge Teresita Baldos’ Decision in May 15, 2000, which directed the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor to Resolve complainant’s Motion for Reconsideration in this criminal case where Judge Paguio found probable cause. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex B hereof. 3. On September 23, 2008, the respondent Office of the Public Prosecutor of Bulacan filed with the Court COMPLIANCE, stating that it will not obey the Court Decision/Writ of Execution, and remanded the records to Your Honor/Br. I, MTC, Meycauayan; Trial Prosecutor Felizardo Montero and Prov. Prosecutor Alfredo Geronimo RULED that the Motion for Reconsideration of undersigned should instead be resolved by Your Honor and not by their Office as Mandated by the Court Decision/SERVED WRIT OF EXECUTION. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex C hereof. 4. Meanwhile, on October 3, 2005 & October 2, 2006, A.M. No. 05-8-26SC & R.A. No. 9356 (Charter of the City of Meycauayan) took effect respectively – resulting in: a) the REMOVAL of the power to conduct preliminary examination/investigation/resolve Motions for Reconsiderations of Preliminary Investigation Resolutions from First Level Courts, like Your Honor’s Office/station, and b) the REMOVAL of all powers to prosecute and conduct preliminary investigation/motions for reconsiderations, from the Office of the Bulacan Provincial Prosecutor, regarding all offenses and crimes committed at Meycauayan, since the City Prosecutor, Eufracio Marquez had acquired original and exclusive jurisdiction, thereof. Copies of these documents-Circular-Law are collectively attached as Annex D hereof. 5. Further, undersigned personally wrote Judge Petrita B. Dime regarding the BRIBERY, on January 29, 2008; undersigned also filed a Writ of Amparo
case with the Court of Appeals which was dismissed by Justice Edgardo Sundiam, ruling on March 4, 2008, that undersigned should rather file an administrative case against Judge Cruz and Ms. Joson. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex E hereof. 6. Accordingly, undersigned filed related (that is, the facts had been derived from the instant criminal and civil cases) administrative cases for BRIBERY, gross misconduct, gross ignorance of the law, and DISBARMENT against Atty. Nye N. Orquillas, the son-in-law of Prov. Prosecutor Alfredo Geronimo (Atty. Nye’s wife, Judge Sheila Geronimo Orquillas is the daughter of Prov. Pros. Geronimo), Judge Thelma-Pinero Cruz and her OIC, Ms. Lerida Socorro-Joson. The Supreme Court’s 3rd Division and OCAD gave due course to all these administrative cases, and docketed them in FULL. The IBP had finished the Mandatory Preliminary Conference while undersigned and Atty. Orquillas had filed the Position Papers. Judge Thelma Cruz & Ms. Joson also filed their answers in the OCAD cases. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex F hereof. 7. Further, as vendetta, Judge Thelma, on April 15, 2008, dismissed Civil Cases Nos. P-405-98 & 938-M-98, on technical grounds, despite the fact that for 10 years, undersigned submitted evidence while complainant, defendant therein, Mr. Mariano P. Blanco never appeared nor presented evidence. Undersigned filed a Motion for Reconsideration and objected to her Inhibition. On September 3, 2008, Judge Thelma reversed herself and RULED that she will issue an NEW DECISION on all cases including defendant Atty. Rodel Gil Villarico, which she excluded from the first Partial Judgment, without any reason. Until today, and after more than 7 months, she failed to decide the case amid her filed Supreme Request for Extension, while she will retire at the age of 70 this July 25, 2009. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex G hereof. 7.a All these obliged undersigned to file the Verified Omnibus Motions to declare null and void the Fiscal’s COMPLIANCE and to Direct Your Honor to cease and desist from proceeding, etc., as nominal party-public respondent. The Br. 17, RTC, Court Judge Arcega heard the Motions and her Process Server Carlos T. Perez, Jr. had personally served copies of the Motions, and all court orders from October 28, 2008 until today, upon all parties and upon Your Honor, personally and to Br. I, MTC, Meycauayan, per Mr. Rolando Halili. The hearings on the Motion were conducted by Judge Arcega set from October 28, November 4, 17, 18, 24, 25, 2009, February 24, March 10 & 24, 2009; some of these hearings were cancelled due to – a) lack of material time since, undersigned’s case was always put in the last in the calendar as motion, b) while the Judge had also been attending seminar and c) Fiscal Montero had been on sick leave in some hearings. Thus, Judge Arcega set the hearings on April 28, 29 & May 7, 2009. Copies of all these Orders setting the hearing were furnished to Your Honor and to Br. I, MTC, Meycauayan, as evidenced by the proof of service. Copies of these documents are collectively attached as Annex H hereof.
7.b. Hence, Mr. Rolando Halili has no business to ask for your guidance; all the proceedings, at Br. 17, as shown above, had been conducted and copies of all the orders were furnished to your Courts (Marilao and Meycauayan), as nominal public respondents.
Addendum: Undersigned accused had to file several letters to the Bulacan Executive Judge (now deceased) Petrita Braga Dime, so that these Bulacan court cases would be decided by Judge Cruz. Since 2005, complainant started flooding the Executive Judge’s office with letters pleading this matter of no decision in these consolidated cases since 1998. On January 29, 2008, complainant wrote Judge Dime to require Judge Cruz to decide these cases. But Judge Cruz, due to accepted BRIBE money, refused, since her hands were tied. So, complainant filed a Writ of Amparo case with the Court of Appeals but Justices Edgardo Sundiam, Conrado Vasquez and Monina Zenarosa ruled that complainant should rather file an administrative case against Judge Cruz and her co-conspirator, Ms. Lerida Socorro-Joson. Vendetta: Judge Cruz dismissed the consolidated Cases Nos. LRC P-405-98 & C.C. 938-M-98, on mere technicality not even raised in the pleadings, despite the fact that she ruled that all defendants failed to appear and rebut all the tons of evidence presented by complainant. Thus, complainant filed a 350-pages bribery administrative case against Judge Cruz and Ms. Joson. Complainant timely filed a Motion for Reconsideration of the Partial Judgment penned by Judge Cruz. Meanwhile, as predicted verbally and in writing, in the pleading called SUMPA (pages 1 and 2 of the Reply and Motion for Reconsideration dated May, 2008), Judge Petrita Braga Dime+ died in pain on July, 2008, while Justice Edgardo Sundiam+ who denied complainant’s Amparo petition on June 5 and March 4, 2008 (and whose entire CA office was burned months before on his last birthday celebration on this planet) died due to lingering illnesses on February 3, 2009, after the husband+ of Judge Cruz died of cancer-leukemia on 2005, while original Judge Roy D. Masadao,+ who inhibited in these consolidated C.C. 938-M-98, died of cancer in 2006, and after defendants’ Blanco’s lawyer, Atty. Rafael Santos+ died in 2003 before the P 100 million fire which obliterated the tannery of defendants Blancos. Judge Nicasio Bartolome, who lambasted undersigned at the hearings, had been in the hospital twice, while Judge Orlando Paguio was fined P 5000 by the Supreme Court in “Yolando Floro vs. Judge Paguio” and he lost in the Vice Mayoralty race. This is the essence of “Godly Reprisals” or Biblical CURSE by undersigned under Psalms 109 & 73. WHEREFORE, undersigned respectfully NOTIFY Your Honor of the foregoing SUB JUDICE matters-proceedings and of Mr. Rolando M. Halili’s Violations of - A.M. No. 03-06-13-SC, “Code of Conduct of Court Personnel,”
Gross Misconduct, Gross Ignorance of the Law and S.C. Circulars, Bias, Partiality and Acting as Lawyer for the Complainant, Mr. Mariano P.Blanco. ALL RIGHTS RESPECTFULLY RESERVED. Sincerely, and IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I signed this letter, this 1st day of April, 2009, at Malolos City , BULACAN. Judge FLORENTINO V. FLORO, JR., Accused, on behalf of himself, by himself and as litigant, 123 Dahlia, Alido, Bulihan, Malolos City, 3000 BULACAN, Tel /# (044) 662-82-03; [I.D. Number: RTCJ-317 / EDP Number: 38676300;
