Timeline and Exhibits of a player described as a Good Boy

23 07 2007

And now, on with the facts…

Much has been said about the Jojo Duncil issue. A lot of people came out to publicly defend Duncil, while others continue to portray him as a cheat. Even the school where he came from was not spared from all these talks. In some forums, discussions on this issue sometimes turn into ugly debates because the participants are very passionate about their stand.

But the question is: have these people seen the documents before they can make their conclusions? When they participate in these discussions, is it based on facts, or do they just use certain perceptions of those being talked about?

Inboundpass.com is committed to bring out stories that concern college basketball leagues in the country. Some of us in this site may have a thing or two for our alma mater. But more important, this website has committed itself in helping preserve pureness in these leagues by tackling issues that may become detrimental to all concerned in the long run. Such as the Jojo Duncil issue.

I have observed that a lot of people joining the discussions haven’t seen the documents that inboundpass have. Some even speculate on certain pieces of evidences, and eventually these speculations become the “gospel truth”. Through a timeline, inboundpass.com wishes to share the documents and the inside information that we have gathered for your appreciation.

June 5, 2007 – inboundpass.com’s Tony Atayde posts a story of an alleged high profile player from a UAAP school having a tampered birth certificate which will make him ineligible to play in UAAP Season 70

June 7, 2007 – Joselito “Jojo” Duncil files a petition before the Macabebe RTC (through lawyer Victor Rodriguez) to have his birth certificate entry changed, specifically the entry on date of birth from January 13 1982 to January 13 1983. Case no. 07-05-85-M Macabebe RTC.

June 10, 2007 – UST basketball coach Pido Jarencio comes to the defense of his player Jojo Duncil. When asked about Duncil having a tampered birth certificate, Jarencio says that it’s pure hearsay and that the rumor is not true. Jarencio adds that Duncil was born in 1983 according to records submitted to UST, and everything is okay with Jojo.

June 13, 2007 – inboundpass.com secures birth certificate and the Varsity Athletes’ Information System Eligibility Report submitted by UST to the UAAP in school year 2004-05. Both documents state Duncil’s date of birth as January 13 1983.

June 22, 2007 – inboundpass.com secures Duncil’s birth certificate from the National Statistics Office. The document states that he was born January 13 1982. The NSO also vouches authenticity of the birth certificate, stating that the document is a digital copy of the birth certificate coming from the Municipality of Apalit; and that it is the only document concerning Duncil’s birth certificate in their data base. Furthermore, the NSO states that the birth certificate submitted to the UAAP is tampered.

June 25, 2007 – UAAP Eligibility Committee meets; UST submitted a lineup with Duncil in it. But when questioned about the birth certificate, UST presents two birth certificates with NSO authenticity, one with DOB January 13 1982 (the same document secured by inboundpass.com) and another with DOB January 13, 1983.

June 27, 2007 – Duncil was interviewed by inboundpass.com and Philippine Chronicle reporter Josef Ramos; in the taped interview, Duncil vowed to fight tooth and nail over this matter. He claimed that the Municipality of Apalit lost his birth certificate when his sister tried to reprieve it, and that the municipality replaced it with the wrong DOB (January 13, 1982).

June 29, 2007 – UST declares Duncil will turn professional. Here is UST’s press release:

Duncil foregoes final year of eligibility, decides to turn pro.

JOJO Duncil, the 24-year-old who led the Santo Tomas Growling Tigers to an improbable Cinderella finish last year, has decided to forego his final year of UAAP eligibility to join the coming Philippine Basketball Assocation Draft.

The crafty, 6-foot shooting guard got the blessings of school officials and his coach, Pido Jarencio, after a long talk yesterday, with Jarencio saying that he will not in any way “stand in the way of his progress.”

“It is his and his family’s decision,” Jarencio said. “He already served his school well, and with that we are grateful. It’s time for us, as his guardians here (at UST), to support him in his career move.”

A native of Apalit town in Pampanga, Duncil, who won the Finals MVP last season when the Tigers upset the Ateneo Blue Eagles, 2-1, in the title series, was also a vital cog of the Harbour Centre team that won the PBL Unity Cup recently. His contract with the Batang Pier will expire at the end of this month.

“I want to play against the best and it is at this stage of my career where I feel that I can do that,” Duncil, who is the second blue-chip player to skip this year’s UAAP after Adamson’s Ken Bono, said in Filipino. “I am very thankful for UST officials for giving me their blessings.”

The PBA Draft is set in the second week of August and Duncil is expected to be snagged high in the order. Duncil attended practice at the UST gym yesterday to bid teammates farewell and wish them the best in their title defense, which starts Saturday next week.

Bono, the burly 6-foot-5 center who has a soft, accurate touch from the outside, is also reportedly set to enlist in the pool, which could go down as one of the richest in recent years.

July 2, 2007 – UAAP President Fr. Ermito De Sagon answers question on why Jojo Duncil left for the pro ranks.

“Ok, let me answer that. Of course, Jojo Duncil was our player. He was a UAAP player. As far as we are concerned, he is a dead horse and it is useless to talk about a dead horse. Sabi ko nga, kaya tinanggal na lang sa line-up kasi hindi nakaka-excel yung iba. Natatakpan yung ibang player namin kaya iba naman. But really, as far as the controversy is concerned, we know from the family. In fact, Jojo Duncil is the nephew of the rector of UST. So, as far as his person is concerned, we have no doubts against his person. He is a good boy. But the only problem is he has two NSO-certified birth certificates. One will make him ineligible. Kasi kung 1982, ineligible. Kung 1983, eligible. Now, we think that this is, as far as UST is concerned, is an additional burden, an excess load. We don’t want any member of our team to have excess load. It will be a distraction to our games. We don’t want to have games and put into question. Kaya better, mag-pro ka nalang. And of course, as a matter of fact, that was his real intention. He was weighing the possibility of going pro because he was watching the list of those who will go pro. Kasi siyempre, yung player, nakakiramdam din when is the best time to turn pro. Siyempre kung maraming magagaling na mag-turn pro, mahihirapan ka rin. So parang for him, that’s his decision and the family’s decision and we respect it. Sa UST, hindi na namin pinag-uusapan yun.”

July 7, 2007 – Start of UAAP Season 70

July 13, 2007 – As of this date, there’s still no schedule for the special proceeding for Duncil’s petition. The Clerk of Court of Macabebe RTC also said that Duncil has yet to submit the documents needed for his petition.

July 20, 2007 – Mrs. Felicitas Francisco asked for an emergency meeting of the UAAP Board to discuss the UST Rector’s request to let Duncil play this Season. The Board junks the request 7-0 during the said meeting.

I had a chat with a UAAP insider after the meeting, and I’m glad that he was able to answer my queries. When I asked about the basis of the UST Rector’s request, the UAAP insider said that the Rector was “out of the loop” and didn’t see the wisdom of Fr. De Sagon and Mrs. Francisco in deleting Duncil from the list of UAAP players.

When asked about the issue on the birth certificates, the UAAP insider acknowledged that the birth certificate UST submitted to the UAAP in 2002 was a tampered version of the NSO document with DOB January 13, 1982. The UAAP insider added that the other “NSO” document De Sagon was referring to during the July 2 press conference was not similar to the one submitted to the UAAP. So essentially, it was the tampered birth certificate that spelled the difference.

I asked why they have to submit such document to the UAAP if they have an alleged NSO (with DOB 1983) to begin with; the insider simply shrugged and said that its something between UST and Duncil. The insider also gave me the same reply when I asked when that alleged NSO (with DOB 1983) surface. The insider also noted that both NSO documents are authentic; though the insider admits that the birth certificate with DOB 1982 indeed came from the NSO, the insider can only observe the NSO document’s ( the one with DOB 1983) authenticity by looking at the document, and not verifying with the NSO. Maybe the UAAP Board can check with the NSO on this particular document.

When asked if UST was negligent on the matter, especially when the school submitted other documents such as the Athletes’ Information Record with DOB 1983, the UAAP insider simply said that since Duncil will no longer play in the UAAP, then the issue should be between UST and Duncil. But if the issue is discussed in the board room, then the Board will look it up, the insider adds.

What’s interesting is the date when Duncil filed his petition, filing it two days after Tony Atayde first wrote his blind item. Another interesting point is Duncil’s reply during the interview on why he had a birth certificate with DOB 1982, practically blaming the Municipality of Apalit for losing his document and replacing it with a wrong entry on DOB; and his conflicting reply to the UAAP Board (oh yes, the UAAP insider did confirm this) that his birth certificate was indeed altered in 1989 to make it appear that his DOB is January 13 1982 so he can enter elementary school (in 1989).

So there, you have the facts as gathered and compiled by inboundpass.com. I don’t expect everybody to swallow this as gospel truth, especially when some are hurt by it. For it’s been said that the truth may be your friend or your own worst enemy, depending on where you stand. As for inboundpass.com, we take full responsibility in presenting these facts to you. Also, we’d like to encourage you to check out the institutions mentioned if you have any doubts on the veracity of these materials.

if you have the means, i suggest you try to get Jojo Duncil’s baptismal certificate (if he was born Roman Catholic)..i think this could complement the opposing claims of whether he was born 1982 or 1983…based on what i heard in a legal assistance program on AM radio, on cases regarding birth certificates, other third-party certificates (like baptismal) and sworn statements from relatives and people within the community can be used as proof to back up one’s claim on the alleged defects in his birth cert., as for this, his year of birth..

i think his baptismal cert. will provide strong evidence of his DOB..normally and based on Roman Catholic tradition, it only takes months after one’s birth for him to be baptized..it will be really weird IF his baptismal cert. says he was baptized sometime in 1983 but was born (based in NSO records) Jan. 1982..to think that he was born in a province with strong Roman Catholic traditions..

24 07 2007

also i’m a bit confused..does this mean that in 2002, UST submitted a ‘tampered’ birth cert. of Duncil w/ DOB 1982 and in the VAISER UST submitted in UAAP for SY 2004-05, the birth cert. they provided is one with DOB 1983?..ibig sabihin ba nito, before pa lang, magka-iba na ung birth certificates na binigay ng UST sa UAAP?

oh..a little grammar check on my earlier comment:

–try to get Jojo Duncil’s baptismal certificate (IF HE HAS ONE)..not (if he was BORN Roman Catholic)–

..syempre nga naman, kaya nga bibinyagan ung tao e..hehehe..

The Dont Mind

Dont mind me

but Jojo’s baptismal has a 1983 year on it.

Funny, but the real thing that I wanted to see her

IS still NOT posted here.

I guess, some people have to dig better

or just STFU.

Dont mind me

but why not ask someone who knows Jojo better?

So stop eating GREEN grass.

Stop being so low.

Does it really matter who first questioned the authenticity of the documents of Jojo Duncil? The fact is, there exists some sort of controversy, fraud or forgery, which may be tantamount to a crime. So regardless of who or why the investigation started, shouldn’t the UAAP, or even the government authorities, finish it? And by finish, we don’t mean just sweep the matter under the rug and forget about it. Extricate the truth!

Thank you for you comments Whamo. But as far as his baptismal record and sworn statements are concerned, it’s the Macabebe RTC which will look and appreciate these documents. Discussions tend to turn ugly when people use “their words against his” and “traditions” (which can be broken) as their main arguement. Unlike legal documents, in this case the NSO BC’s which can be used for proper discussions, the baptismal certificate don’t carry much weight in this issue, except when presented to the court for appreciation. I’m pretty sure Duncil will submit these, but as of July 13, the Macabebe RTC has yet to recieve them. I do hope they start the hearings so that the isuue on his birthdate will be settled, for Jojo’s sake.

The questions on the two NSO records and the tampered document submitted to the UAAP are the main issues here. That’s why inboundpass.com has been consistent in calling for an inquiry on this. We never called for Duncil’s head or UST’s suspension. By presenting legal documents, interviews from all parties involved, we hope that the proper authorities will do something to settle this.

Yes, the UAAP Insider did confirm that the birth certificate submitted to the UAAP in 2002 was a tampered version of the NSO birth certificate with DOB Jan. 13 1982. And that this tampered birth certificate and the other “NSO” birth certificate with DOB 1983 that UST has are two different versions. Ad for the VAISER, the school PROBABLY based this on the birth certificate. Of course, only UST can answer that.

Again, thank you for the comments. I sincerely hope that these questions are settled by the proper venue.

Thank you for the comment, The Don’t Mind. Let me just correct you though that my school color is not green. Please take time to read my very first article (you can look at the columns section) and there you’ll find out where I came from.

This discussion is already subjudice, there is already a pending case in RTC macabebe, judicial respect and courtesy dictates that you should shut up.leave this matter to the court.

Thanks Kim for the comments..grabe, this issue has really gone a long way..

i do hope this will be settled in the court soon!

As for UST, seems like something is REALLY wrong…as the saying goes, when there’s smoke, there’s fire..

Kim,

Pasensya ka na. Some people think that only La Sallians like me are talking about this issue. I guess they dont realize that it transcends school affiliations.

Thanks Richard. What Duncil filed in Macabebe is just a petition to have his DOB changed from 1982 to 1983. Meaning, he will just have to prove to the court that he was born in 1983. Besides, the questions regarding his two NSO’s (as UST claimed to have with them)and his tampered birth certificate has nothing to do with his petition- Duncil would be a fool if he mentions this in the petition right? Also, the petition is yet to be raffled off.

bwahaha

pansin ko lang ha..etong website lang ang puro jojo duncil ang articles…may sama ba kau ng loob sa USTe at kay jojo duncil? ano bang problema nio? objective nio bang masuspeinde ang eskwelahan dahil sa bc na yan? Para nmang kcng ndi big deal yan eh. kc 1983 nman talaga pinanganak si Jojo. at kung meron mang may kasalanan dun, yoon ay ang mga magulang niya dahil gusto siyang pag-aralin ng maaga…ang mali ng UST ndi nahawakan ng maayos ang sitwasyon…tska ngayon lang gumaling si Jojo Duncil…kung kelan chumamba sa championship ang USTe saka kau naglabas ng ganyang mga balita…bakit yung mga mahinang teams ndi niyo rin imbestigahan kung meron silang kaduda dudang player? Puro si Jojo Duncil na lang ang pinupuntirya niyo eh..kay BONBON CUSTODIO nga ng UE wla kayong masabi dati eh..sasabihin niyo na “objective” kuno ang mga articles niyo..pero ndi niyo makakaila na Biased ang mga articles..hay nko, bhala na kau..sana lang eh maging reponsible kau sa mga inilalabas niyo at sana malinis ang intention niyo at ndi lamang manira ng tao at ng eskwelahan..

Don’t mind me

but so show neutrality,

I guess some people here should investigate

other “over aged” players.

From what I’ve heard 2-3 schools have already
fielded ’em 25-year-olds.

25 07 2007
Richard

whether it is a petition to change birth date or not, it is still under litigation and any comment that tends to influence the court is subjudice. though the issue of tampering of birth cert is not part of the petition, it still pertain about the two birth dates subject matter of petition.i suggest that the owner of this website should file before the court a memorandum, as an amicus curiae, to bring forth all the issues they want to raise so that it will be decided in the proper forum and avoid trial by publicity. but i think you will not do that because it is against the purpose of this website.

Guys jojo duncil is only a tip of the iceberg. There are many players to be investigated after I gathered several documents that could pin them down.

Some alleged players have proven innocent after I saw proper documents while others remain under investigation…

There are big, big names and small time players.

So watch out pretenders…

The boys are here…

ang tawag pala dito sa website na ito “mun tulfo” ng UAAP, hehehehe keep up and goodluck, sana mauncover nyo boung iceberg, ano ba color nyang iceberg, green na naman o blue o yellow, parang ice cream

bwahaha

Now that will be good if you will also write articles or exposes in this website about the “irregularities” of documents of players from other schools. that in result, will show your neutrality….nakikita ko na lang kc dito eh puro “dead horse” articles eh..

Dont mind me

but I agree with Josef (even once)

a lot of em 25 year olds are playing right now.

and Duncil got pinned down, coz well,

he’s the king tiger.

Dont mind me

but i’ve heard an eagle, a warrior, and possibly an archer are some of the players
who got on the iLLegit list…

Balik nakaw ng identity na naman iton walang hiyang ito. Naawa ako sa magulang mo na ikinahihiya mo ang pangalan mo at kailangan mong gamitin ang handle ko.

Talagang nakakahiya ka sa pamilya mo, sa eskwela mo at lalo na sa sarili mo.

If you say once a cheater always a cheater then UST is in the same boat. They cheated with the Duncil issue. So Adamson is in the same boat cos they cheated with the Marlou Aquino issue. Nagmamalinis ka pa. IKAW MAGNANAKAW!!!!!!!

no i dont think so…DLSU is the “proven” cheater..tanggap ko pa sanang cheater kme kung nasuspend kame..mas nakakahiya ka kasi gawa ka ng gawa ng istorya na nandaya ang UST eh wala ka nmang napapatunayan, kpag na-suspend ang UST dahil sa duncil issue then you can claim that we’re on the “cheaters boat” pero as long as there’s no verdict, UST IS CLEAN UNLIKE YOUR SCHOOL, tapos pati panalo ng ateneo prinoprotesta niyo pa, ndi nman malaking bagay yun eh..natalo kayo dun malinaw na malinaw..ngayon, sinong cheater sa atin?…win at all cost nga nman ano…

To top it all FEU won. Sorry bwahaha…maybe you should change your handle to boohoohoo.

that’s ok…the breaks didn’t go our way..We’ll get them next time, there’s still a second round.. its a close game though and UST put up a good fight and it scared the hell out of the archers..congratulations for the win, it’s too early and i think the tigers are peaking at the right time…i was there live and you can see the sportmanship between the two schools and i love it…congrats archers! you deserve the win…we’ll get you next time..bwahaha

The Green Mind

bwahaha,

I have to say that the officiating was again sloppy in this game. UST got some bad calls and Coach Pido had every reason to complain.

Officiating in both college leagues have been awful. In the San Beda Letran game, the refs said they did not call a foul in the dying seconds because the crowd was already on the court. The refs need to be in control and that unfortunately they are not.

30 07 2007

UST-La Salle game, sportmanship at its best, kailangan me manalo na team, unfortunately, its the green, congrats. Even without the dead horse, the archers had a tough time beating the tigers. better prepare the two death certificates for the death horse, para sigurado, hehehehe

30 07 2007
Richard

ay mali, dead horse pala, not death horse

31 07 2007
bwahaha

well, i may agree with you mr. green mind that there have been bad calls for ust, there is even a foul that is called to dylan but later was ignored because it is clear on the replay that ababou didn’t commit any violation. ewan ko ba sa mga ref. but at the end of the day, the archers still won and we respect that. the ust-lasalle game is a best example of college basketball at its best. again congratulations to the archers! hopefully, the tigers will be more lethal in the second round. and mr. green mind, please accept my apology if i may hurt you in some way due to my posts. well my point is until nothing is proven, duncil is innocent. but i myself may never know. anyway, lets just enjoy our healthy discussions here. sana the tigers can still make a amazing run in the second round and eventually enter the final four.

Dont mind me

but DLSU-UST is one of the best games so far.

UST showed during the early quarters that they’ve adjusted w/o Duncil in the rotation

DLSU then showed that the game aint won in the first 3 quarters. They’ve close the game preety well.

Dont mind me

but it gave me the creeps to see Cuan with the ball on the corner with the time almost at zero during the regulation.

I’ve noticed that Espiritu stil hasn’t found his range. Pumped too much iron during the summer, IMHO.
