UST, Duncil can run but the truth can’t hide

15 07 2007

UST has stirred the hornet’s nest.

Frankly, it happened during the 70th UAAP press conference at the ABS CBN compound last July 2 when UAAP board President Fr. Ermito De Sagun refused to discuss the Duncil’s issue.

But the Fr. de Sagun admitted during the press conference that Jojo Duncil has two birth certificates which is very impossible to happen to a citizen especially when they reach the required legal age.

A friend of mine who would like to stay anonymous, works at the National Statistics Office (NSO) as an administrator. They said that it is really impossible for the NSO to issue two different birth certificates of one person because it is against the law. Then again, Fr. De Sagun wants the issue closed but it is still out there.

Last Friday, I personally went to Apalit, Pampanga to investigate if there is such an ongoing court proceeding about Jojo Duncil’s birth certificate.

It was a real adventure for me, especially with the site of rain and the breath of fresh air. And yes there will be a court proceeding but not in the municipal trial court of Apalit.

Based on the information given to me by Apalit’s clerk of court, Mrs. Maria Chico, that all cases for special proceedings will be directly sent to Macabebe, Pampanga – Regional Trial Court (RTC) – the same RTC of Apalit. Furthermore, clarification, changes and deletion of any personal or public document are subjected to special court proceedings.

The Clerk of Court in Macabebe who refused to be identified told me that Duncil had filed a court proceeding last June 7 to permanently change his birth year from 1982 to 1983.

But, according to the clerk of court, a hearing schedule has yet to be identified. This means that as of this moment, there is no court hearing set contrary to what Mr. Duncil told me in UST gym in Espana, Manila before the UAAP opening. Currently, he is still considered 25 years old.

Another contradicting subject are his two NSO documents.

He only wants to change his birth year and he has not stated that the NSO has given him two different birth dates, which is again another impossiblity.

The big question is “Why did Mr. Duncil never thought about filing a special court proceeding for this anomaly even when he was still in high school or elementary?” If he had done so, this mess would not have heppened in the first place.

Maybe UST should have explained and presented the two NSO birth certificates during a press conference. I believe UST won’t do it.

Now, UST’s preferred strategy is “less talk, less mistakes” as questions from my sportswriter colleagues were turned down during the press conference after Fr. De Sagun admitted that Mr. Duncil has two birth certificates. How could that happen?

Even my boss Al Mendoza, a highly-respected long-time sports editor and current sports editor of THE PHILIPPINE CHRONICLE, demands that UST explain how this matter happened in the first place.

Gus Villanueva, the editor-in-chief of the Journal group of companies, said UST and Mr. Duncil are guilty of a crime.

In fact, in their opinion, they want the UAAP to forfeit Mr. Duncil’s game from 2002 to 2006 and disqualify UST from last year’s title because of tolerating this violation.

Crime has been committed, they said. For me, that’s too much. I’ll just leave it to the UAAP board. And it is up to them if they will continue to ignore this. Maybe this is the reason why UST decided to let Duncil forgo his final year.

This guy hasn’t proven anything except for his heroics in last year’s UAAP finals where he led UST to a 2-1 conquest of Ateneo to win the title.

Mikee Romero, the team owner of newest PBL grand slam winner Harbour
Centre, wants Jojo to stay in the amateur ranks. Jojo had a hard time adjusting in the PBL. So how would he fare in the PBA?

Yup it could happen but the best thing is the UAAP Board should investigate this matter despite the decision to forgo his final year.

The question now is what kind of documents did Duncil passed last 2002 — his rookie year — to the UAAP eligibility committee.

If he had done settling this matter before, I’m sure he’ll be out of this mess…

* rolls eyes and mumbles under breath, “here we go again” *

actually, nabasa ko na ‘to kahapon. hindi na sana ako magko-comment dahil alam kong exercise in futility lang kung gagawin ko ‘yon. isa pa, naghahabol ako ng deadline kaya wala akong oras. kaya lang hindi ako mapakali hangga’t hindi ko ito nailalabas sa sistema ko eh kaya eto na naman ako.

why? because you are maligning my alma mater that’s why!

anyway, bago ang lahat, may napansin lang ako. kahapon si mike abasolo ang naka-byline dito. bakit ngayon josef ramos na? weird naman. i remember precisely kasi napatingin ako sa list of writers ninyo tapos naisip ko, aba mukhang nag-tig-isa kayo. sabi ko pa nga sa sarili ko, four down (atayde, ramos, lesaca, abasolo) two to go (roque, dublin).

oh well, baka isinangkalang si ramos (wawa naman) o kaya “clerical error” (tee-hee)

Punto por punto tayo okay para klaro.

1. mayroong dalawang CERTIFIED NSO CERTIFICATES si jojo sabi ni Fr. de Sagun. Sabi naman ng source mo sa NSO imposibleng mangyari iyon.

Sus! Naturalmente iyon ang isasagot niya sa iyo kasi iyon ang PC answer. Dapat talaga “imposibleng mangyari” ang sagot niya dahil iyon ang nakasaad sa patakaran ng sangay na pinagtatrabahuhan niya.

Pero gaano siya nakasisiguro na sa buong history ng NCSO ay ni minsan–as in NI MINSAN– hindi pa nangyayari na nakapag-issue sila ng higit sa isang BC para sa isang tao??

FACT: MISTAKES HAPPEN. Pangulo nga natin nagkakamali, ang mga kagawaran pa kaya niya?

Isa pa, alam naman nating pareho na may pagka LAX sila. SArili nilang rules hindi nila kayang i-implement. You know what I’m talking about. Di ba nga nakakuha ka ng BC mula sa kanila gayong dapat ay hindi kasi BAWAL ‘yon.

http://www.census.gov.ph/data/civilreg/civapfaq.html#birth

NOTE: ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATION OF BIRTH IS SUBJECT TO THE CONFIDENTIALITY CLAUSE OF ARTICLE 7 OF THE CHILD AND YOUTH WELFARE CODE WHICH PROVIDES:

Art. 7. Non-disclosure of birth records. The records of a person’s birth shall be kept strictly confidential and no information relating thereto shall be issued except on the request of any of the following:

– The person himself, or any person authorized by him;
– His spouse, his parent or parents, his direct descendants, or the guardian or institution legally incharge of him, if he is a minor;
– The court or proper public official whenever absolutely necessary in administrative, judicial or other official proceedings to determine the identity of the child’s parents or other circumstances surrounding his birth; and
– In case of the person’s death, the nearest of kin.

Any person violating the prohibition shall suffer the penalty of imprisonment of at least two months or a fine in an amount not exceeding five hundred pesos, or both, in the discretion of the court.

parang wala yata akong nakitang “reporter” o “journalist” sa listahan nila. hmm… pero kunsabagay, limang daan lang naman ang penalty. chicken feed. iyon nga lang magkaka-record ka na sa NBI. yung NBI clearance mo, hindi na cleared. hala ka!

2. tungkol sa source mo

gaano katagal na ba siya sa NSO? At administrator siya ng anong department? baka commissary o warehouse lang ‘yan, hehe? SAna kinumpleto mo yung mga detalye niya para alam namin na “credible” source siya. puwera pangalan syempre kasi nga he/she wishes to “remain anonymous”

yeah right *rolls eyes*

4. So you went to Apalit, good for you. Masarap talagang mag-out of town kahit work oriented. Kagaya ka din pala ni Dennis Eroa. Nagpunta din siya noon sa Apalit para magsaliksik tungkol sa mahiwagang birth certifcate ni Jojo. Ito ang excerpt ng article niya na lumabas sa Libre noong ika-4 ng Hunyo taong kasalukuyan.(Yaman din lamang na paulit-ulit kayo, heto, uulitin ko din ang pag copy-paste ko)

“Upang ibaon na sa limot ang mga katanungan gumawa ng pananaliksik ang Libre at ito ang mga nangyari. Nakakuha ang Libre ng mga patunay mula sa Divina Pastora Parish sa Apalit na si Joselito M. Duncil, anak ni Flaviano at Helena duncil ay sinilang noong Enero 13, 1983. Nakasaad dito na bininyagan siya noong Mayo 1, 1983 ni Rev. Fr. Leobardo Montoya xxx. Pirmado ito ni Rev. Fr. Reynaldo P. Garcia, kasalukuyang kura paroko.

Ano kaya ang nag-udyok sa kanya na magtungo doon?

Kasi, may lumapit sa kanya para tinimbrehan siya tungkol mahiwagang birth certifcate ni Jojo.

“Ayon sa isang tagamasid na may kaugnayan sa mga kaganapan, hindi bababa sa dalawang karibal na iskul ang handang umeksena at pigilan ang paglalaro ni Duncil. ‘Ang masama nito ay payagang makapaglaro si Jojo ngunit sa kalagitnaan ng liga ay biglang ilabas ang mga di-umano’y katibayan na hindi eligible si Jojo. Magiging sanhi ito ng pagkatalo ng UST sa lahat ng laro na lumaban si Jojo,” sabi ng source sa isang eksklusibong interbyu sa isang mall sa Maynila.”

ANG MISTERYO PARA SA AKIN (AT MALAMANG PATI NA RIN SA LIBO-LIBO-LIBONG MGA TOMASINO) AY KUNG SINO ANG “SOURCE” NA GUMAMIT SA KANYA. AT SINO ANG DALAWANG SCHOOL NA TINUTUKOY NG SOURCE NIYA

hmmm… blind item… showbiz na showbiz! ang cheap!!

5. Balik tayo sa adventure mo, humantong ka kamo sa macabebe at doon ay may nakausap kang court clerk at nalaman mo ang tungkol sa kasong isinulong ni abugado ni Jojo. Ngayon ang kinukuwestyon mo ay ang hearing date.

Hay naku. Ang babaw ha. Wala na ba kayong ibang maisip? Immaterial na ang hearing date dahil once nag-file ka ng case, automatic ira-raffle yun para sa judge tapos ang date depende sa availability ng judge at korte syempre.

Ang pinupunto mo, iba ang sinabi sa iyo ni Jojo. Gets ko naman ‘yon. Pero hindi mo ba naisip na marahil hindi lang kayo nagkaintindihan/nagkarinigan ng maayos ni Jojo sa interview mo sa kanya, saan nga?… sa gym?? wow, a very condusive place for an interview indeed. napakatahimik na lugar, tiyak na magkakaintindihan talaga kayo ng husto. saan ba sa gym exactly.. sa loob? o sa labas? feeling ko sa labas to kasi ambush interview ito malamang.

6. Nalaman mo din mula sa court clerk na gustong baguhin ni Jojo ang taon ng BC mula 1982 para maging 1983. TApos ang kinukuwestiyon mo naman ay kung bakit hindi niya sinabi na may dalawang NSO certificates siya.

Bakit nabasa mo ba ang COURT PETITION niya? Or are you only relying to what the court clerk told you? The details of the case usually presents itself during the hearing proper. Doon lumilitaw ang mga ebidensiya. Common sense naman.

Jojo is 24 years old. Bulag lang ang hukom na magdedesiyon ng hindi paborable para kay Jojo sa kasong ito sapagkat ang unang registration niya ay 1983. At pupusta ako, may mga supporting documents pa si Jojo na magpapatotoo dito. Isang halimbawa na ang baptismal certificate niya among others.

7. Binanggit mo ulit na imposible ang pagkakaroon niya ng dalawang NSO.

Isip-isip naman, hindi malayong mangyari iyon kung dalawang beses siyang nagparehistro. Ito basahin mo, galing ulit sa article ni Dennis Eroa.

“Tiniyak rin ng office of the Civil Registrar sa Apalit na isinilang si Duncil noong Enero 13, 1983 at ito ay tinala noong Marso 13, 1983. Pirmado ito nina municipal civil registrar Erlinda Danganan at civil registry clerk Leonila B. Villanueva.

Ngunit hindi dito natatapos ang suliranin. Matapos na itala na 1983 pinanganak si Duncil ay muling nagkaroon ng ikalawang rehistrasyon sa Apalit civil registrar noong 1989 at dito ay 1982 na siya pinanganak. Dahil sa tinatawag na ‘clerical error’ nagkaroon ng di-umano’y pagkakamali sa marka ni Duncil sa National Statistics Office sa East Avenue.

sentido komon lang po ang sagot dyan.

una, walang matimbang dahilan para sumailalim siya sa hassle noon. aminin na natin, may tendancy tayong ipagpabukas ang mga bagay-bagay na sa akala natin ay hindi pa naman urgent at kinakailangan. ikalawa, sa manila siya nakabase, nasa pampanga ang regional court. ikatlo, hectic ang sched niya. abala siya sa training, practice, games, schoolwork, atbp.

10. Fr. De Sagun admitted that Mr. Duncil has two birth certificates. How could that happen?

Dennis Eroa:
“Tiniyak rin ng office of the Civil Registrar sa Apalit na isinilang si Duncil noong Enero 13, 1983 at ito ay tinala noong Marso 13, 1983. Pirmado ito nina municipal civil registrar Erlinda Danganan at civil registry clerk Leonila B. Villanueva.

Dahil sa tinatawag na ‘clerical error’ nagkaroon ng di-umano’y pagkakamali sa marka ni Duncil sa National Statistics Office sa East Avenue.

BAKIT?

Sidney Ventura:
A source told me the real story is that Duncil was in fact born in 1983, but his parents, eager to enroll him in school at the soonest time possible, somehow made it appear that he was born in 1982. Naturally, it was this birth certificate that became the basis for his age from then on. And inevitably, it came back to haunt him.

A similar thing happened with one of my friends who faked his age so that he could get a driver’s license at the age of 14. Now, he can’t apply for an international license because his Philippine license and his birth certificate show two different birth dates.

So technically, Duncil is only 24. But since he has been using the erroneous birth certificate ever since…well, you can easily see how this became a stupid problem that UST just didn’t want to deal with. It’s also why I don’t think any further investigations will be pursued.

12. About the SEAG team.

Malabo ang sinulat mo, contradicting yung dalawang sentence.

“Mikee Romero, the team owner of newest PBL grand slam winner Harbour Centre, wants Jojo to stay in the amateur ranks. Jojo had a hard time adjusting in the PBL.”

PLUS, opinyon mo lang yung second sentence.

From mb.com
Duncil urged to play for RP five

AMATEUR BASKETBALL godfather Mikee Romero yesterday called on Jojo Duncil, the prodigious star of University of Santo Tomas, to reconsider his plan to turn pro, saying he would be playing a vital role in the title campaign of the Philippine team in the SEA Games this December.

With his wondrous moves around the paint and deadly shooting touch from way beyond the arc, Duncil is almost a cinch to make it to the national team with the imminent departure of some of the big names in the amateur ranks.

“We need a crafty and explosive player in the RP team and Jojo fits to the role,” said the youthful owner of Harbour Centre. “What I’m doing is for flag and country if we can convince Jojo to reconsider his decision then it’s good for all of us.”

“This is our comeback stint in the SEA Games so we need to form a team capable of living up to our lofty status in the region,” said Romero. “We have to regain our pride and honor.”

And this, also from mb.com

“We’re glad he (Jojo) joined our scrimmages today, at least nadagdagan ang bilang ng star players natin,” said Arejola. “But we need more players who have patience, determination and strong commitment to the country.”

Imulat n’yo naman ang mga mata ninyo!

Sa kontrobersiyang ito, si Jojo ang lumalabas na biktima.

Mali na kung mali ang ginawa ng mga magulang niya noon nang iparehistro nila sa ikalawang pagkakatoan ang BC ng anak nila. Pero ang hangarin nila ay malinis. Gusto lamang nilang makapasok ng mas maaga sa grade one ang anak nila.

Ang pagkakaroon ni Jojo ng dalawang BC ay walang kinalaman sa UAAP. Nangyari iyon labing-walong taon na ang lumilipas. At hindi si Jojo ang nagparehistro bagkus ay ang mga kaanak niya. Seven years old pa lang siya noon, hello?

Eh ang pasimuno ng kaguluhang ito? Malinis ba ang hangarin nila??

Tumataginting at malinaw na HINDI!

Sino ba sila? Hindi naman siguro kayo TANG@ para paniwalaan na “aksidenteng” natuklasan lamangang tungkol sa discrepancy sa BC ni Jojo.

Sino ang taong nag-leak nito sa inquirer?

Sino ang dalawang UAAP team na tinutukoy ng source na ito?

Ano ang motibo nila?

Ang pahinain ang koponon ng mga Tigers?
Congrats kung ganoon. Nakita n’yo naman base sa 0-2 slate kung gaano kalaking kawalan si Jojo sa team. Pero pakatandaan sana na ang KARMA ay bumabalik.

O baka naman ang motibo nila ay balikan si Jojo dahil hindi niya binenta yung laro niya last year?? hmmm… puwede rin.
