      • Ang pinaka lesson siguro ng trial para sa akin, isama na talaga ang mga dollar accounts sa mga SALN ng mga politiko o pagpapalawig at pagpapalinaw sa batas ng Dollar Secrecy. Walang dahilang tumanggi ang isang pulitikal na tao kung wala talaga silang tinatago.


        • tama, it’s all about transparency. sabi nga ni Allan Cayetano, kung ayaw mo magdisclose ng SALN wag ka pumasok sa gobyerno. this is a lesson to all of us and most especially sa mga taong gobyerno na itigil na ang pagtatago ng yaman. dahil matutuntun at matutunton sila. Kilos na para sa Malinis na Pilipinas. hahahaha #nangampanya
