  1. Pacquiao tax case thrown out - DoJ report call it "absurd"

    MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Justice (DOJ) has junked the case filed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) against boxing champion and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao.

    In an eight-page resolution, the DOJ called it absurd to hold Pacquiao liable for neglecting to obey a BIR subpoena which he did not receive at all.

    The DOJ agreed with the respondent that there was no valid service of the subpoena duces tecum upon him.

    The Justice Department said the allegation of BIR Officer, Abdul Jalil J. Taratingan, that he personally delivered the subpoena in General Santos City, received by a certain Jocelyn Nebria, is contrary to Revenue Memorandum Order No. 88-2010 which requires for a personal service to the person being summoned.

    “It is only upon refusal of the person being summoned to receive the subpoena that a substituted service can be availed,” said the DOJ.

    The DOJ ruled that since there was no refusal on the part of Pacquiao to receive the subpoena, the BIR case is irregular and ineffectual.

    “The service of summons is, indeed, a vital and indispensable ingredient of due process. Such denial of respondent’s vital right constitutes a serious infirmity in the proceedings which led to the filing of this case against him,” the DOJ said in its resolution.

    Pacquiao’s legal counsel, Atty. Abraham G. Espejo, expressed his gratitude to the DOJ.

    “Congressman Pacquiao is and will continue to be a law abiding Filipino citizen,” said Espejo.

    The BIR has accused Pacquiao of violating Section 266 of Republic Act 8424, otherwise known as the National Internal Revenue Code of the Philippines.

    BIR regional director Rozil Lozares claimed that Pacquiao snubbed the bureau’s summons to present his tax records to the agency.

    looks like the spivs in government, who do nothing but take and give nothing back will have to think of something else to fuck the man over who has done more for his people than corrupt fuckers in power will ever do.

    Yeah, it's not as if they are struggling to fufil their basic needs themselves yet they just love to screw over those who are, by fucking over Paquiao you're pretty much fucking over a whole province of poor people by taking away one mans hard earnings, earnings he has used to try and turn the lives around of many people.

    Those with power only seek to serve themselves and get in the way of anyone who wishes to serve others, its a common trend world wide and it sucks.
