affidavit did not come from his father, essentially disowning it. No. 4, Your Honor, the inclusion of my name in Mayor Espinosa’s affidavit was part of a dagdag-bawas operation . Let me explain. Per media reports, 226 were included in Mayor Espinosa’s affidavit. But why is it that only 47 were charged? Ang laki po ng disparity. Why? Because, as reported to me no less by witnesses in Ormoc, the Albuera police officers assisted obviously by a lawyer prepared the affidavits of Mayor Espinosa. They have to include 226 persons in the list in order that these Albuera police officers can extort money from many of them in consideration for their being dropped from the affidavits. For example, Your Honors, in Mayor Espinosa’s August 24, 2016 affidavit, he included in his answer to Question 30 the name of Andres Cruz as one of Kerwin’s protectors. Yet, on October 13, 2016, Mayor Espinosa executed, this is two months after his August 24, 2016 affidavit, Mayor Espinosa executed another sworn statement attesting, “to the fact that the said Andres C. Cruz is not involved in any illegal activity involving drugs.” I have attached copies of the affidavits, Your Honor. On the other hand, I have a Sinumpaang Salaysay dated November 10, 2016, a certain Galo Stephen Bobares who explained that in his October 3, 2016 affidavit which was prepared by Hydie 15

COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC ORDER AND DANGEROUS DRUGS JOINT WITH THE COMMITTEE ON JUSTICE AND HUMAN RIGHTS SMVilladiego III-1 November 23, 2016 9:20 a.m. 2 Yutrago, a policewoman of Albuera, Leyte, and Jovie Espenido, the chief of police of Albuera, Leyte, these are in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the affidavit, when he was investigated--that before that date, he implicated only three police officers as recipients of payola, namely: Manalo, Vaño of CIDG Region 8 and Havines, the former Albuera police chief. However, when they were brought on October 3, 2016 by Jovie Espenido and Hydie Yutrago and other police officers including Maximiro and Mayor “Onik” Espinosa to Tacloban City to have them notarized, he was surprised to know that many other police officers were already implicated, Your Honors. Worse, a Xerox copy of alleged notebook was already presented as evidence during the investigation at Regional Internal Affair Service at PNP Regional Office No. 8. This is in paragraph 8. This as part of their dagdag-bawas operation. These documented cases of dagdag-bawas explain why, Your Honors, my name was included in Mayor Espinosa’s affidavits of August 24 and October 3 of this year, 2016. I do not like to belabor, Your Honors, this proceeding. I will just affix to this statement, Your Honors, a copy of the privilege speech I gave at the House of Representatives. Thank you, Your Honor, for the opportunity given me. Maraming salamat po sa inyo. 16

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
