Cash Scandal

The editorial cartoon tackled the news on Ret. PNP Dir. Eliseo dela Paz who owns the stardom in the newest “Cash Scandal.” The backgrounder: Dela Paz was intercepted by the Russian customs authorities for bringing large amount of euro money (Php6.9million) while they were about to go to Warsaw for personal trip, according to reports, after attending the 77th International Police General Assembly in St. Petersburg last October 7-11.


That stirred the inquisitive mind of some senators and media here as to the nature of that incident and why he had such amount of money which he never declared before the Philippine airport authorities when they left for activity. The controversy dragged the Philippine National Police officials and Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno who are facing a Senate inquiry now.


Although he said he was willing or ready to face any investigation, Dela Paz failed to present himself before the Senate inquiry yesterday. This infuriated Sen. Mariam Defenssor – Santiago who instead verbally castigated Versosa, Puno and the counsel of Dela Paz on various issues including Puno's alleged role in the defeat of Senator Santiago in previous elections.
