Valley Golf Guards Report: Pangandaman Security Men Drew Guns on Dela Pazes

January 2, 2009

I’ve just obtained a copy of the actual incident report filed by the Security Department of Antipolo’s Valley Golf and Country Club (VGCC) on that melee involving the Pangandamans and Dela Pazes.

Though written in fractured English, the report, unless it mysteriously undergoes ‘sanitation’ clearly reveals that the security men witnessed the bloodied conditions of 56-year-ols Delfin Dela Paz and 14-year-ols son ‘Bibo’.

More revealing, the report points out that the Pangandaman security drew their high-powered rifles menacingly at the Dela Pazes.

The VGCC is reported to have suspended the elder Pangandaman’s playing rights for at least 6 months.

The club management has not yet issued any formal statement on the incident or on its in-house investigation.

It bears mentioning that the NBI itself is investigating the issue as a criminal incident.
The Pangandamans in their own ‘counter-account’ have consistently denied that they had any security personnel with them on the VGCC fairway.

What is now clear to me  is they lied in this respect.

How else are we now supposed to believe the rest of their claim that they “acted in self defense.”

By the way, apparently ‘unruffled’ Secretary Pangandaman was reported to have motored to Baguio a day after the Dela Pazes were mauled.

What was he there for?

To play golf with presidential son and Congressman Mikey Arroyo.

What are we ordinary mortals to think?

    I’m sorry, but the report doesn’t really help the de la Paz’s. In the first place, it doesn’t really counteract the Pangandaman’s story that they didn’t have bodyguards on the fairway. All it says is that the security personnel saw the bodyguards on the lower veranda of the clubhouse. It doesn’t preclude that the bodyguards were actually on the fairway with their principals, but it doesn’t confirm it either.

    Also, the report only tells us that the bodyguards were carrying high-powered armaments. It says nothing about them using the same to intimidate the de la Paz’s.
