ONE OF THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS TO FILIPINOS
THE BEST CHRISTMAS TO FILIPINOS

One of the best Christmas gifts to the Filipinos is Mr. Danilo P. Pacaña. He has exemplified the real meaning of being a winner of the Gerry Roxas Leadership Award (GRLA) like the author, Berteni "Toto" Cataluña Causing. The writer was bestowed such honor when he graduated in 1982 from Koronadal National Comprehensive High School.
Pacaña fought a more-than-a-decade lonely fight for justice and truth against one of the three richest men in the Philippines, who is LUCIO TAN.
He started his fight even if the battleground was peopled and lorded over by those who had been indifferent to the name of justice and truth.
He even wrote a book entitled "FACE OFF AGAINST A TYCOON" to at least document what has been in his mind as THE BIGGEST PRIVATE FRAUD OF THE CENTURY. That book was harmless because the environment was hostile to him and the tycoon was so friendly to the government.
Thanks to the new administration that the playing field has at least been lowered for the enemy of justice and truth and strengthened Pacaña's ground to force the issue.
Last December 6, he hinted me he had already filed WHAT COULD BE THE BIGGEST PRIVATE FRAUD OF THE CENTURY. I waited for it and, yes, here it is now.
It has been announced that he filed a multi-billion-peso tax evasion case against Tan-controlled merged companies of Fortune Tobacco Corp. and Philip Morris Forthune Tobacco Corp.
The evasion was committed by means of using dummy companies to evade the correct taxes.
