The Controversial Code NGO Peace Bonds is Back with Vengeance (tags)
The controversial Peace Bonds that earned a windfall profit of P1.48-billion for the Code NGO then headed by now Social Welfare and Development Secretary Dinky Soliman, along with the sister of then Finance Secretary Isidro Camacho, is back under the rule of President Noynoy "No Wangwang" Aquino III. People's Organizations and responsible legislators are asking that DSWD's Dinky Soliman and her cohorts should be investigated and that people behind it should be held accountable for the mess that allegedly duped the Philippine government in billions of pesos. Social Welfare Secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman, who used to hold the position during the time of former President and now Pampanga Rep. Arroyo, said she is willing to face the probe. The P1.4-billion earnings from the secondary sale of the bonds was alleged to have ended in the Peace Foundation she headed.

There is real possibility for a significant leap in the reform process in the Philippines after the 2010 elections. If, as seems likely at this time, Noynoy Aquino wins the presidency, a number of converging developments could produce the conditions necessary for change. The first is Noynoy himself, who has successfully embodied the political legacy of his mother Cory, and his father Ninoy. This, in turn, has introduced a new dimension of enthusiastic voluntarism to the election campaign. Finally, the people running Noynoy’s campaign constitute the leading core of an enlarged reform constituency.
