Marissa Lapid’s Violation of US Travel Regulation 2011

On November 27, 2011, Marissa Lapid was arrested upon arrival at the Las Vegas International Airport by the US custom for carrying $50,000 which was a violation to the US travel regulation. This law that Marissa had violated allows foreigner in entering the US carrying cash of up to $10,000 only without declaring it. If carrying more than the said amount, the person should declare the money.

The money was confiscated but she was not detained..

But who Marissa Lapid is?

Marissa Lapid is actually the wife of Senator Lito Lapid and the mother of 5. Mark Lapid is the youngest among the children. She owns MTL Enterprises that runs the Walmart Construction Supply, Maynards’ Agri Farm Supply, Barstow Minimart, Generics Pharmacy and Porac Ice Plant.

January 2012 Arrest

On January 15, 2012, she was again arrested by the US authorities after arriving at the Las Vegas International Airport. This recent arrest is not related to a new violation she committed but connected to the warrant of arrest issued by the US court against her on January 5 for smuggling money, $50,000, into the US on November 2011.

She was currently out of bail but is wearing the monitoring bracelet as required by the Nevada court. She was also told to stay at home.

The Political Issue

It was reported that Marissa Lapid said repeatedly that the money she brought on November 2011 to the US is for their house. On the other hand, the husband and Senator, Lito Lapid, said that the money is for the treatment of the illness her wife is suffering which is similar to the illness of the former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

My thought: If Marissa Lapid is telling the truth that the money she smuggled to US is for their house, then the Senator Lito Lapid is telling us lies using the illness like the one suffered by the former President as an alibi.

Taguig Vintage Bomb Explosion January 2012

A Vintage bomb found in Taguig City exploded was the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit of PNP (Philippine National Police) – Special Action Force tried to defuse it, Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at around 3PM. PO2 Elizalde Bisaya and an iron shop owner, Crisanto Daguio died immediately, while PO3 Jose Toralba, PO2 Arnold Mayo and the owner of a nearby bakery, Riza Romualdo were brought to the Taguig Pateros Hospital, however, Toralba and Romualdo are pronounced dead on arrival while Mayo is still in serious condition.

The bomb exploded when the owner of the ironworks shop used the acetylene torch in trying to open it and then defuse it. But what happened is that as the bomb was being heated, it then exploded hurting a dozens of people and killing 4.

The police personnel violated the rules in defusing bomb, in which the area should be secured first before defusing it. What they did is that they brought the bomb into the populated area and there they tried to defuse it. Besides, vintage bombs should be surrendered to the bomb disposal unit of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

The Police Officer who survived the incident will be facing charges.

The person sitting next to me said that this way of defusing a bomb is called foolish. He said that the police officers including the welder did not use their brains considering that it is just normal for a bomb to explode when heated.

Farewell Representative Iggy Arroyo

It might be too early to bid good bye to Congressman Iggy Arroyo because according to his family, he is still alive but is just brain-dead.

But, for me, a brain-dead man is already dead. It just happens that he and his family is wealthy and they can afford to pay for the life support system that helps the other organs of a brain-dead man alive. Besides, I don’t hear someone who is already brain dead yet survived? If you knew one, just tell me.

Now, why I consider a brain-dead man a dead already? It’s because I haven’t learned of a doctor who can replace a dead brain with a new and functioning brain, thus making the brain-dead man really alive. Iit is better if you are considered heart-dead and in life-support while your other organs are alive because you can still wear an artificial heart that will help your whole system alive, than having a dead brain.

On Thursday, the life support attached to the body of the Congressman Iggy was removed by the hospital personnel as authorized by the common-law wife of the Congressman, Grace Ibuna.

Grace Ibuna was with the Congressman for about 4 months while he underwent medical treatment of his liver illness.

About Congressman Iggy Arroyo

Iggy Arroyo born as Ignacio Arroyo is the representative of the 5th district of Negros Occidental. He is the brother of former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo (Jose Miguel Arroyo).

He was married to Marilyn Jacinto whom they had children named, Bianca and Dina. Their marriage however was annulled. He also has a daughter, Alelu, with his legal wife is Alicia “Aleli” Morales-Arroyo. The two separated in 2006. His common-law wife, Grace Ibuna, is the one on its bedside when he died.

Liver Ailment

He flew to London for the medical treatment of his liver ailment. Last Wednesday, his brother, Mike, announced that he died in London hospital of Cardiac Arrest. But later, it was corrected saying that the congressman is still in life support because he is already brain-dead. But he is not yet declared by doctors as dead.
