FULL TRANSCRIPT OF INTERVIEW
Totoo yon. sinabi ko yon. gutter language. but it was expressed in utter anger. makinig kayo —pati si mar roxas — before you get wild ideas, ganito yan, in 1989 i was in the chuch hearing mass, tumawag ang security because cory aquino, the president, was on the line. ito ang sinabi niya — what is happening there.
ano mam? yong penal colony sa panabo. sabi ko nasa davao ako maam. but sani nya are you not the chairman of the peace and order council, i said yes. eh bakit wala kang alam. sabi ko, this morning, nobody told me. she said there was a hostage taking yesterday afternoon. paalis na ang mga tao. palabas na sa visiting area ng davao penal colony.
paglabas na, there was a hostage taking 16 convicts took one each as hostage. there are 16 hostages and 16 criminals. sabi ko maam i will look into it. she said do not look into it. go there and find out. sumakay ako ng chopper ng airforce at nag ikot muna kami, survey sa lugar, and the sarao na parang mataas, nandoon. niong papunta pa lang ako, i was told that they came to agreement with the penal authoroities na palabasin sila kuinan ng sasakyan. sabi ko block the highway para maabutan ko.
going agusan na sila. they were already in the terotiry of agusan. sabi ko ibaba ako sa harap ng jeep. pagdating ko doon, dalawa kami i general estares, he was a colonel at that time, naghubad akonat ang baril ko tinapon ko sa tabi. sabi ko wala akong baril. pwede akong makipag usap sa iyo. nong lumapit ako, i could smell the humanity.
lahat ng dumi ng tao nandon. because nobody was allowed by the hostage takers, by the criminals to go out because sinusundan sila ng army, pc, lahat andon na…sabi ko, pwede tayo mag usap. pwede ba akong lumapit. nakita ko ang dumi ng tao naghalo na. pati ihi. lahat na. as a matter of fact i was negotiating, sabi ko bakit naman itong mga inosente.
eh kung may hinanakit kayo, eh di pag usapan natin. eh ayaw.ako nakinig lang. i listened patiently. maya maya lumapiot si estares. sabi nya may isang bata dyan na nahostage hindi nanay nya ang nagkarga. and bata na yan is only 3 months old. tiningnan namin, blue. walang gatas. ang nanay nakatakbo. ang naiwan sa loob yong tiyahin. yong kaptid ng nanay. the child was almost dying. sabi ni estares time is of the essence dito. ang interest ko lang ang bata—sabi ko irilis nila ang bata pati ang tita at ako ang magpa hostage.
totoo ka? oo. sige. mauna na ako. tapos walang palabin. walang exchange. noong nandoon na kami, isa isa, kung ano ano ang kaso nila. kidnapping murder, lahat na, eh sabi ko, hindi tayo tatagal dito, pati ako mamamatay. punta na lang tayo ng opisina ko — may banyo doon, makaligo kayo, makapaghugas kayo, makapagkain kayo…napag usapan namin ang kaso…we went to back to davao city ako ang hostage nila. it’s all in the phototages of all the netrowks at that tiome. i told the soldiers na pag nakita nila akong may dugo, ubusin na nila ang lahat. pasok kami doon…negotiate…
the mother of pugoy was fetched by the Philippine army and brought to davao and they talked. yong iba nag surrender na, si pugoy ayaw. sabi ko kay calida, sabi ko sir —babarilin ko itong tatlo pagbaba. kinausap ko ang kapatid ko na isa, sabi ko, babarilin ko ito. tagdalawa sana kami…pero si jess dureza, ever the peaceful man, tumawag kay cory. tumawag si cory — and told me to resolve the hostage taking resolved peacefully, wala akong magawa. tapos na sana yon. si jess dureza ang ayaw.
one month after, may pumasok na mga prayer warriors, nag hostage na naman kasama yong australian. parang negotiations. sabi ko, ako uli mag negotiate. ayaw na pumayag ng militar. kasi yayariin ka ng mga yan.
ginawang human shield ang bata, isang babae, yong puti, tapos may dalawang lalaki. ayaw talaga ng militar, ayaw ko rin. gusto nila ng jeep. ayaw ko. may mga opisyal na pumayag. sabi ko ayaw ko. they will fight it oiut. pumilit sila.
ang mga sundalo, kinuha ang mga patay.
in my utter anger, gutter language yan eh, sabi ko — oh ito, ang ganda ganda pa, mukhang artista, putang ina naunahan pa ako, patayin mo lahat. sa galit yon. i was not joking .
nong kinukwento ko yan, sabi ko, roxas, panay ang arte mo, magpa hostage ka lang,
i was angry at that time.
that’s my explanation. that’s it. if you don’t believe it, the videos can show for it.
gutter language yan. ganon ang mga lalaki magsalita.
“oh, putangina naunahan mo pa ako, letse ka…”
sorry kung hindi nagustuhan ng iba.
pero yan ang totoo. that is an incident but there is a story behind it.
it was a bad remark. it wasnt a bad joke. talagang galit ako kaya ko sinabi yon — oh, putangina naunahan mo pa ako. that’s a cliche. ganon talaga.
ang buhay ng isang tao maraming dadating…pero ako, gawa ko para sa kapwa tao.
i had them all killed at that time. i was the one who ordered them killed. they were armed. and they already had some people killed.
and i was investigated by a congressional committee.
i am even willing to lose the presidency.
do not make me apologise for something which I did — which was called for at that moment.
i can lose gabriela and all…wala akong pakialam.
sabi ko sayo i will not die if i will not become president.
but certainly as a matter of honor, i will stick to my guns. i said it in the heat of anger. kung kayo nandon, sige mga gabriela, pati si mar and roxas…
well, i can retire.
in this particular — ginawa ko eh — i am invoking invictus. i am sorry in general. i am sorry for the filipino people. it is my style. it is my mouth. i said that in the heat of anger. but listen to the story behind.wag kayo basta na lang paambak ambak dyan.
JOKE ANG RAPE?
No. I didnt do that. I said it in a narrative. i was not smiling. I was just talking playing sense….
kung ayaw ninyo ng tao na ganito magsalita, pasensya. di doon kayo sa english spokening. yong mga conyo. doon kayo sa mga magnanakaw na wala namang ginawa. ano naman ang ginawa ninyoin sa katapangan ninyo? magpa hostage ng barbero beh, binay. puro ka lang nakaw dyan. buti pa ka. ako dito nagpapa hostage, sinusugal ko buhay ko dito, kayo dyan nakaw ng nakaw wala naman kayong ginawa.
