Iglesia Ni Cristo NBI Director Reynaldo Wycoco


Manila, Philippines - Recent Iglesia Ni Cristo government official and appointments have never been impressive. From INC Congressman Rodante Marcoleta, INC member NBI Chief Magtanggol Gatdula and to another INC member, LTO chief Virginia Torres. The performance of these government officials certainly reflects to INC cult. Do you think INC members should be proud on having these 'public servants' as their 'brothers' and 'sisters' in INC church? I have never seen any INC blogsites who proudly boasts the accomplishments of INC government official and appointments. I am not saying that INC members are humble fanatics. INC members are usually proud about their chapels and their direct condemnation to Catholics. I guess, it's just that there's really nothing to be proud of with the INC government appointments and official. Iglesia Ni Cristo is certainly silent about INC Congressman Rodante Marcoleta. Iglesia Ni Cristo is certainly silent about LTO chief Virginia Torres with her STRADCOM and LTO fiasco. But INC, openly supported the appointment of former Quezon City police chief Magtanggol Gatdula as NBI chief.

Why is Iglesia Ni Cristo keen on appointment in NBI chief post?
Magtanggol Gatdula is not the first INC member to be NBI chief.
(deceased) NBI chief Reynaldo Wycoco was also an INC member.

Which decided me to look back on how the Filipino people remembers Reynaldo Wycoco as an NBI chief.

• NBI chief Reynaldo Wycoco and Acsa Ramirez

Whistleblower of multimillion-peso tax scam of Land Bank of the Philippines, Acsa Ramirez suffered an unimaginable humiliation under the hands of Gloria Arroyo and NBI chief Reynaldo Wycoco. Acsa Ramirez was mistakenly pointed by Gloria Arroyo as a suspect instead of a whistleblower during a press conference. Instead of clearing things up, Arroyo and Wycoco tried to show Acsa Ramirez as a suspect related to the tax scam but the NBI and Wycoco failed to do so. Later on, Arroyo was forced to apologize to Acsa Ramirez for the embarrassing mistake that have been made. Under Reynaldo Wycoco, the NBI was embarrassed by a huge mistake of presenting a whistleblower as a suspect. If Reynaldo Wycoco had a 'delicadeza', he should have resigned immediately after Arroyo admitted the mistake. If Reynaldo Wycoco have been taught by Iglesia Ni Cristo to admit mistakes and to avoid lying to impress Gloria Arroyo, he should have resigned immediately after Arroyo admitted the mistake. Imagine, NBI can't even point the difference of a whistleblower and a crime suspect. How embarrassing for National Bureau of Investigation to fail in such a simple case. Shame on INC member Reynaldo Wycoco. Two Thumbs up for Whistleblower Acsa Ramirez.

• NBI chief Reynaldo Wycoco Faizal Marohombsar

LBP SCAM: NO APOLOGIES TO WHISTLE-BLOWER

...The Ramirez incident is the second time that the NBI, under Wycoco, has been put under bad light because of its release of false or misleading information or kuryente in Filipino journalistic parlance.

On July 26, Wycoco had reportedly alerted the President while she was in Sarangani that alleged Pentagon gang leader Faizal Marohombsar was already in government custody. Wycoco’s information immediately prompted Mrs. Arroyo to announce the fall of Marohombsar, which was later proven to be incorrect.

Marohombsar denied Wycoco’s claims in a radio interview...

Editoryal - Wow talaga ang mga mali!

Noong Biyernes, napadaan sa National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) si Mrs. Arroyo at ipinirisinta sa kanya ni NBI director Reynaldo Wycoco ang suspect sa P203 billion tax scam sa Landbank. Ang suspect na ipinirisinta kay Mrs. Arroyo ay si Acsa Ramirez, cashier ng Landbank Binangonan Branch.

Subalit mali! Si Ramirez pala ang "whistle blower" sa nasabing anomalya. Akala umano niya ay iko-congratulate siya ng Presidente kaya siya tinawag at pinaupo sa unahan iyon pala ay isa siya sa mga suspect. Umiyak nang umiyak si Ramirez sa pagkakataong iyon sapagkat nakatutok sa kanya ang TV camera. Kitang-kita ang mukha niya.

Umano’y nag-sorry na ang NBI sa kanilang pagkakamali at kapalpakan subalit humihingi si Ramirez ng public apology. Tungkol sa maling pagkakaprisinta sa kanya ng Presidente, sinabi ng abogado ni Ramirez na na kay Arroyo na kung hihingi ito ng paumanhin.

Hindi ito ang unang pagkakamali ng NBI. Ayon sa isang opisyal ng Malacañang, ang NBI rin ang nagbigay ng maling impormasyon kay Arroyo tungkol sa pagkakahuli sa Pentagon Gang leader na si Faizal Marohombsar noong July 26. Wala naman palang katotohanan ang pagkakadakip.

• NBI chief Reynaldo Wycoco, Panfilo Lacson and the FBI.

After the embarrassing mistakes of NBI under the leadership of INC member Reynaldo Wycoco, I think the other issue worth mentioning is the serious breach of security committed by Wycoco to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of America. I think the Acsa Ramirez and Faizal Marohombsar mistakes of NBI are nothing, compared to the breach of security made by Wycoco in search of information for Panfilo Lacson. I was quite surprised how brave and bold Wycoco to do such an act. Not only did Wycoco broke the trust of FBI to the Philippine authorities but Wycoco also embarrassed the Philippine nation for being dishonest. I think even INC members should not be proud of Reynaldo Wycoco for being an Iglesia Ni Cristo member. I am not even proud of Reynaldo Wycoco as being a Filipino. Please continue reading the whole article below about the breach of security made by Wycoco in the FBI when he visited the United States of America.

I am not sure if Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of America should also take a look at the Iglesia Ni Cristo political church because the Philippine for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) also reported that Iglesia Ni Cristo ...The INC has always resisted any attempts to encroach into its physical space. Military intelligence sources say that the Iglesia has 1,000 to 2,000 high-caliber firearms in its armory, apart from guns owned by individual members who include soldiers and policemen. In September 1972, INC members shot at and killed three Marine soldiers who were part of a contingent sent by Marcos to shut down the church's DZEC radio tower.

FBI ‘blacklists’ NBI’s Wycoco

The Justice department and the National Bureau of Investigation under the Arroyo administration can no longer expect any kind of cooperation from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after a serious breach of security was committed by Philippine officials, led by NBI Director Reynaldo Wycoco.

The NBI and, by extension, the Department of Justice (DoJ) have been placed on the blacklist of the FBI which has reportedly cut its ties with its Philippine counterpart, the NBI, in protest over what it described as a “deceptive” ploy by Wycoco during his visit to the United States last May, the Tribune learned from its sources yesterday.

The FBI’s reference to Wycoco’s “deceptive ploy” was the video footage showing the meeting held between Wycoco and Kyle Latimer, legal counsel of the US Attorney General’s Office, which agency has administrative supervision over the FBI.

The Justice department and the National Bureau of Investigation under the Arroyo administration can no longer expect any kind of cooperation from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after a serious breach of security was committed by Philippine officials, led by NBI Director Reynaldo Wycoco.

The NBI and, by extension, the Department of Justice (DoJ) have been placed on the blacklist of the FBI which has reportedly cut its ties with its Philippine counterpart, the NBI, in protest over what it described as a “deceptive” ploy by Wycoco during his visit to the United States last May, the Tribune learned from its sources yesterday.

The FBI’s reference to Wycoco’s “deceptive ploy” was the video footage showing the meeting held between Wycoco and Kyle Latimer, legal counsel of the US Attorney General’s Office, which agency has administrative supervision over the FBI.

Sources from the Philippine Embassy in Washington disclosed to the Tribune that the FBI leadership was outraged by the existence of the videotaped meeting and its subsequent public showing over Philippine television.

The meeting was apparently filmed in secret with a hidden camera by an aide of Wycoco, without the knowledge and consent of the American legal counsel and other American officials present during that meeting, the sources disclosed.

The video showed Latimer answering questions posed by Wycoco on the alleged bank accounts in the US of Sen. Panfilo Lacson.

The well-placed Tribune sources said Latimer and the FBI were not aware that one of Wycoco’s aides, who was later identified as Mike Magtanggol, was secretly filming the meeting which lasted some 45 minutes.

The digital video camera was reportedly hidden inside Magtanggol’s attaché case.

NBI sources told the Tribune that Magtanggol is not an organic NBI agent although he is seen almost every day hanging around Wycoco’s office at the NBI headquarters in Manila.

Records show that Magtanggol is the production head of the NBI Files, a weekly talk show hosted by Wycoco and television anchor Cristina Pecson, aired Tuesdays over a government-sequestered channel.

The secret filming by Magtanggol, obviously done with the knowledge and consent of Wycoco, was denounced by the FBI, the sources said.

“The FBI was so outraged because they (the officials) considered the act as a deceptive ploy by Director Wycoco and a violation of the trust and confidence being given by the US agency to the NBI chief,” the sources said.

The same sources said Wycoco’s act also undermined the security inside the FBI since it was a clear breach of security inside what is supposed to be a highly secured federal building.

Outraged by what was clearly a breach of security and confidence, the FBI official in the country reportedly barged into Wycoco’s office and gave him a piece of his mind.

The NBI sources confirmed that Jim Nixon, the FBI chief legal attaché to the Philippines, went to Wycoco’s office the day after the video was shown over ABS-CBN and GMA-7.

During the meeting, Nixon was described as “fuming mad” over the videotape which talked about Lacson’s bank accounts amounting to some $200,000, not the millions of dollars as alleged by military intelligence chief Col. Victor Corpus of the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (Isafp), and Wycoco himself, who had claimed as early as eight months ago that his counterpart, the FBI, had furnished him a report on Lacson’s alleged bank accounts which Wycoco claimed held “huge” amounts in the millions, which he said would serve as the grounds to file money-laundering charges as well as plunder against Lacson.

“Jim Nixon was really angry during the meeting in Wycoco’s office. As a matter of fact, he was recalled to the US by his superiors to discuss the matter and the decision arrived at by the FBI officials was to sever their ties with the NBI as long as Wycoco sits as director,” a reliable source disclosed to the Tribune.

The source added the FBI is strict when it comes to confidential and secret matters, specially when these are passed on to its foreign counterparts, like the NBI.

“Once you are blacklisted by the FBI, there is no appeal. When the trust they (FBI) reposed on you has been betrayed, you’re blacklisted for life,” an NBI official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

Nixon, the source said, is also head of the US Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force (JATTF) in the Philippines.

The JATTF, which was formed after the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, is composed of the FBI, US Port Police and the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Earlier, DoJ Secretary Hernando Perez played up the probe conducted by the Senate blue ribbon committee which focused on the alleged bank deposits amounting to close to $1 billion which was claimed by the Isafp chief to belong to Lacson

Perez claimed that he had obtained some damaging reports on Lacson’s alleged records but that he was just waiting for the official records from the US Department of Justice.

An official from the US Embassy told the Tribune that Perez was “lying through his teeth.”

The embassy official said the US DoJ was unlikely to even think of turning over any document to Perez, or Wycoco, for that matter, since the US government does not want its agencies’ confidential documents to be used by a foreign country, like the Philippines, for what was obviously a “political play.”

The same official expressed “horror” at the way Perez and Wycoco were using the name of the FBI and the US Justice department for “political purposes.”

It was learned that the video of the meeting, which was reportedly heavily spliced by the NBI to make it appear that the meeting was focused on the Lacson dollar accounts, was discovered to have been leaked by Wycoco to a select group of sympathetic reporters making up Wycoco’s media clique in Camp Crame .

They were given explicit orders not to drag the NBI in the videotape leakage.

This was the reason the broadsheet reporter who leaked the video to ABS-CBN and GMA-7 made it appear that the video came from Isafp’s Corpus.


• In short •
Iglesia Ni Cristo NBI Director Reynaldo Wycoco was a failure,
an embarassment to the Filipino people

    Please double check your facts.

    Wycoco being wooed to run for Ecija congressman

    ... If Wycoco decides to throw his hat in the political arena in the province, political observers said he might get the support of Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) of which he is a member

  4. Iglesia Ni Cristo Auditor General Jun Santos

    Totoo ba na si Iglesia Ni Cristo Auditor General Jun Santos ay isa ding anak ni Felix Manalo sa ibang babae? Magkapatid sa ama si Eraño Manalo at Jun Santos? Tiyuhin ni Eduardo Manalo si Iglesia Ni Cristo Auditor General Jun Santos? Kung totoo ngang maraming ginalaw na babae si Felix Manalo, mali na agad ang pundasyon ng Iglesia Ni Cristo. Sana malagpasan ng mga INC ang scandal about the Rosita Trillanes case.

    Iglesia Ni Cristo minister Rene Panoncillo

    Si Iglesia Ni Cristo minister Rene Panoncillo ay napapabalitang anak din ni Felix Manalo at kung ang pagbabatayan ay mukha, para ngang kamukha ni Felix Manalo si Rene Panoncillo. Sana tigilan na ng mga Iglesia Ni Cristo ang paninira sa mga katoliko kasi mismong Iglesia Ni Cristo members at ang Manalo family ay may kasiraan din.

    Iglesia Ni Cristo History

    Alam naman ng lahat na si Felix Manalo ay galing din sa iba't-ibang religions. Nabautismuhan si Felix Manalo sa ibang religions pero hindi mismo sa sariling religion na itinatag niya. I doubt na sugo nga ng Dios si Felix Manalo. Totoo ba na si Iglesia Ni Cristo Auditor General Jun Santos ay isa ding anak ni Felix Manalo sa ibang babae?

    These are just simple deadly questions.
    The answers are more frightening.
