The Truth About Noynoy Aquino’s So-called “Dark Secret”

PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN OF SENATOR BENIGNO “NOYNOY” S. AQUINO III

 

This is to refute the malicious allegations raised in an article titled “Noynoy’s Dark Secret” written by Alfred Dalizon and published in the October 26, 2009 edition of the People’s Journal.

This is an old story and it is unfortunate that Mr. Dalizon’s article got the facts completely wrong. A certain “Charlotte Marie Datiles” indeed died during the August 28, 1987 coup d’etat. She was not the girlfriend of Senator Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III nor was she in the same car as the senator.

According to Ramon Tulfo in his September 9, 1987 column “On Target” that appeared in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, she was the 19-year-old girlfriend of a certain Lt. Teodoro Sanchez, an undercover operative of the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Tulfo wrote: “Sanchez and Datiles and another ISAFP agent were passing by Malacañang aboard a car during the attack on the palace. They came from a mission following up a lead in the slaying of Local Government Secretary Jaime Ferrer. Sanchez’s car was sandwiched between the Palace guards and the rebels firing at each other.”

A copy of the said article is attached. While we all expect evil propaganda of this nature to continue as the election nears, we have no doubt that truth will prevail in the end. We must not be distracted in the campaign to fight for what is right. The Filipino people deserve nothing less. Our call remains: “Tanggaling ang tiwali, itama ang mali!”

Sincerely,
Florencio “Butch” Abad
Campaign Manager

    ang ganitong mga paninira ay natural lamang lalo pa’t nakikita nilang lumalaki ang bilang ng mga noy-mar supporters. kudos to Mr. Abad dapat sinasagot ang ganitong mga paninira para maging malinaw para sa lahat ang totoo at tama. ok ang islogan natin: TANGGALIN ANG TIWALI, ITAMA ANG MALI!!

    Sama-sama tayo sa tagumpay ng tambalang NOYNOY-MAR para sa 2010 election. sa susunod na komento ko ay maglalahad ako ng maaaring lumutas sa maliliit na subalit palasak na problema ng komunidad. hanggang sa susunod.

    Maraming salamat po sa paglilinaw na ito. Naniniwala po akong hindi makakagawa ng ganoon ang ating butihing Senador na ngayon nga’y naatasang tumakbo sa pagkapangulo sa darating na halalan.

    Ang kalaban sa pulitika ay patuloy na humahanap ng butas upang madungisan ang pangalang iniwan ng mag-asawang Ninoy at Cory sa nag-iisa nilang anak na lalaki.

    Hindi pa sila nakontento sa paglalahad ng mga kasinungalingan nila sa madla upang mapagtakpan lang ang kanilang masamang ginagawa.

    Masyado na silang desperado na maangkin ang pwesto hindi upang maglingkod sa bayan kung hindi para sa kani-kanilang personal na motibo.

    I truly believe na ang TRANSPARENT governance ni Noynoy ang makakapagtanggal sa tiwali at makakapagtama sa mali!

    Mabuhay Ka Mr. President 2010.

    Ridiculous and absurd, if this is how those who would like to detroy Noynoy has resulted to doing. They have miserably failed in their objective since nobody in his right mind would pay attention to such canard. How Nonoy could be held responsible for something he’s got nothing to do with is just plain irresponsible reporting. Its such a lousy script.
