Iyong sabi nila noon. Two --- two administrations, they allowed this to happen. Nung ako na --- iyan, ‘yang sinasabi nila ngayon na sulat, they will forgo with the 7 billion. Tapos they are willing to talk, to correct --- 1997 until…

Paano? How --- how can you talk about correcting things? You were collecting from the people. ‘Yung… ‘Yung ano nila, ‘yung carrier --- treatment ng water at saka ‘yung parang malaking --- I don’t know how they’d call it --- parang septic tank diyan sa… Nandiyan lahat tapos linisin.

Noon nandiyan na ‘yan sa bill.  Nagbabayad ang tao. Environmental ano. They just coated it with a very nice word. Pero actually it was a collection na for --- to build a water treatment. It never came. Ang collection niyan, papaano?

And the people expecting that we have to earn money. And you placed in the contract, “The corporate income tax shall be spread in the accounts of the consumers in public.” Tayo pa ang mag… Gusto kong itapon ito.

Well, kung kilala ninyo ako. Si Art kilala niya ako, classmate kami. Iyong despots. A sovereign nation na ang rates itaas, ibaba mo, does not lie on the sovereign countries. Sila ang mag-determine kung itaas nila o ibaba nila. P***** i** nila. Diyan ako talaga umuusok.

I --- I really do not know how I would… I’m at a loss even... Hindi ko talaga alam kung papaano --- kung paano ko sila durugin. Kita mo ‘yung mga mayayaman tahimik lahat ngayon. Kasi ‘yung mga board of directors gusto kong tingnan. If you are one of the board of directors, you just say ---  you might --- you might want to raise your hands because I have something to tell you.

Depende. I will feel the pulse of the people. ‘Pag sinabi nila, “Mayor, hiritan mo,” then I’ll file economic sabotage. My case is airtight. Mismo ‘yung contract, ang p***** i** niya, kung iharap mo doon sa Anti-Graft Law, it mirrors --- it is a mirror of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Law, Republic Act 3019.

Hindi ko talaga alam. Hindi ako negosyante. Hindi --- I… I do not want to talk about money kasi in the first place hindi man ako sanay. Well, verily because hindi man ako --- wala man tayong ganon. Maybe Dominguez and si Lopez, Art. Nung sa law school kami mayaman na ‘yan. Top executive na ‘yan. I don’t know if he wants to name the… Kaya ito bilyonaryo na. He is a billionaire. Sa aming panahon, millionaire na ‘yan siya.  He was a working student but he was a top executive of a big business.

Kaya hindi ko talaga alam kung papaano ko… Baka masampal ko ‘yan p***** i** bago ako magsa… Baka talaga ma… Bisaya kasi ‘yan sabi kumuton ko yang imong nawong. Kumot is… Really for doing greatest injustice sa…

Kaya sinabi ko noon, noong kampanya ako, I’m not into politics, sabi ko ang corruption hindi dito. Hastang sabi --- BIR. Anak ng jueteng. Sabi ko sa inyo ang corruption nasa itaas. Kaya I zeroed in kay Ongpin.

Sabi ko huwag kang --- do not mess up with my government, with contracts.  Bilihin mo ‘yung mga airwaves tapos ipagbili mo. So kinukuha ko ‘yung airwaves, hindi man nila ginagamit. Binili nila noon. Libre ‘yan ibinibigay sa gobyerno.

Then I was told --- kami, Cabinet meeting, I was told that I have to pay 2 billion. Talagang pumutok ako diyan sa… Hinampas ko ‘yung table. Sinabi ko…

Sabi ko kay Secretary Rio, sabihin mo sa mga p**** i**** ‘yan ‘pag hindi nila isinauli para magamit ng telco and anybody else, just keeping it --- parang speculative --- ‘pag hindi nila isinauli sa gobyerno ‘yan, puntahan ko kayo bukas sa opisina ninyo. Tandaan ninyo ‘yan. Gusto ninyong subukan? Sige. The following morning, isinauli nila. Sabi nila, “Sabihin mo lang kay Presidente --- Mayor ako --- tawag ko sarili ko Mayor. “Sabihin mo na lang kay Presidente na isauli namin.” Kung mahuli ka lang. Kung mahuli ka lang. Kung hindi ka mahuli, anak ng p***** i** niya, sige sila doon.

Ngayon dito sa akin wala. I can guarantee you. Walang --- ako mismo. ‘Yung big ticket. ‘Yan si --- ‘yung… Kayo, ‘yung mga kontrata ninyo, mga anong bilihin ninyo. It does not pass my table. ‘Yung mga transaction, mga bili ng mga barko. Magbili ka ng… Well, I… They --- they don’t. And I don’t. I do not tinker with them.

Akin ‘yang mga promotion, ‘yang ganito --- mga bureaucracy, direction, policies. At sabihin ninyo --- tingnan ninyo lahat ng pinapalakad ninyo na… Do you see my --- maski initial?

In the Cabinet, magsabi ‘yan magbili ng baril.  O sige. Kailangan nila. Bilhan mo ng baril baka mag-private army si… ‘Yan, ganon lang. Hanggang diyan lang ako talaga. I do not sign, I do not participate. I do not negotiate with businessman sa gumagawa ng bagay. Kasi gusto ko paglabas ko, maski baliktarin mo ako ng uyog (shake) diyan, wala kang makuha sa akin.

And malapit na man. But itong… Ito ha, kayo, I told the military and the police. Alam mo, if I do not make it to the finish line, for one reason or another, alam mo ang buhay eh. Ma-heart attack ka. Magputok ‘yang lantsa mo diyan kakabiyahe. O sa eroplano, it would explode in mid-air. Kindly, hindi ko nasabi sa inyo. ‘Yan… Same message to the Armed Forces and the police. Tingnan lang ninyong mabuti. Huwag ninyong bitawan ‘to kasi kawawa.

Alam mo, it started nung walang tubig na apat na araw. So nagpa-piyak-piyak ako doon sa Davao. Tapos may tumawag sa akin sabi niya, "Sir, may tubig." Hindi ko sabihin kung sino. Tapos sabi ko sa intelligence, "Pakisilip nga. Puntahan ninyo. Silipin ninyo." Sabi nila, "May tubig."

Kaya sabi ko, "P***** i** kayo. Pupunta ako ng Maynila bukas. 'Pag bukas wala pang tubig, papalinyahin ko kayo diyan pagsasampalin ko kayo in public.” Kung galit ka sa akin, eh 'di magbarilan tayo. Wala mang problema 'yan.

Pagdating ko may tubig na. That started my... Bakit ito? Anong laro dito? Kasi they were trying to stretch it to where they could raise the prices again and create a situation where...

Alam mo ang tao, 'pag wala ka ng ligo, mabaho ka na, uhaw ka na, ang mga bata from pinakamayaman hanggang pinakamahirap. You know water is life. Even in the Stone Age, people congregate where there is water, there's a river or watering hole because they can survive. And even today, 'yung mga --- especially na… If there is no water, life cannot survive. And you tinker...

Ang masakit sa akin, Art, ganito. For purposes of interpreting this contract --- construction, legal --- water here shall be considered a commodity not a natural resource. Kaya sabi ko ito.

Kaya hindi ko talaga malaman kung paano ko bibirahin 'to because I want everybody, 'yung mga abugado niyan noon, kung ayaw nilang pumunta dito, eh 'di I will drag them. Then if you will force my hand, I will throw my last card.

Ayaw ninyo? O sige. Gusto ninyo daanin sa... Then I will suspend this writ of habeas corpus at hihilain ko kayo. Widespread economic sabotage. Ayaw ninyong pumunta dito? Gusto ko magharap silang lahat dito sa akin.

Isa-isahin ko sila. Ang abugado ng mga p***** i** gumawa ng kontrata. Sino 'yung mga opisyal ng MWSS noon? Tanungin ko sila. What the f*** did you do and screwed the country? Ngayon, 'pag hindi ako ma-satisfy, I will expropriate everything. Kunin ko lahat.

Magdemanda ka nang magdemanda. Tutal dalawang taon lang naman tapos wala na ako. Anong idemanda sa akin? Sabihin ko 'yang Coast Guard o. Iyan ang idemanda ninyo. Sabi ko, "'Yan ang nagbulong sa akin na ganun ang gawin, ganito, ganyan, ganyan, ganyan." Ipasa ko sa inyo.

But you know, I said if I do not make it. Huwag ninyong bitawan ito. I'm not saying you initiate something like coup d’état. Huwag kasi hindi na 'yan tanggap ng Pilipino 'yan eh. If you want an outright, huwag martial law. Mag-revolutionary government ka na lang. Diretso na. Tapos you start to correct everything.
