Sir Ka Pule2,
Lazir accuses Quiambao, Esguerra, and Samuela of violations against Sections 4, 7, and 8 of Republic Act No. 646 (see the KOR Charter below please)!
Here are five compelling reasons:
1. For spearheading/investigating Sir Jun Zerrudo and Lazir based on flimsy grounds, merely upon say-so "from the top", Samuel Samuela tainted his professional name as a lawyer; so did Virgilio Esguerra and his profession, for letting the investigation proceed..., even going against the legal maxim: "Innocent until proven guilty!" by writing a conclusive but SHAMEFUL memo that couldn't hide IHQ duplicity, abuse of power, arrogance, vindictiveness!
Instead of acting appropriately to be part of the solution, Samuel Samuela chose to side with the wrongdoers: corrupt Quiambao and incompetent Esguerra, hurting himself and his own name in the process! If Samuela were righteous, he would have quickly DISTANCED himself from what Esguerra tasked him to do! He did not! Is that Rizalian? Nope! That is contrary to Good Moral Character!
2. For exalting Undeserving persons to KGOR: Paras, Guansing, Plueckebaum, Nollas, Alcoba, Collantes and even FAKEs to KGOR: proven racists Paras and Alcoba!
Quiambao exalted to KGOR fake Knight Felino Paras, April 2001 in Florida and Undeserving Collantes in Canada! Is that alright what Quiambao did? Is it Rizalian? Does it promote Rizalism? Nope! What Quiambao did is/was contrary to Good Moral Character!
Esguerra exalted Undeserving Tony Guansing (Esguerra appointee as Europe regional commander), Undeserving Rudy Nollas (Esguerra appointee as Belgium area commander is Preface author of a FAKE book titled, "Born to be a Hero"!), proven racist and writer of vulgar/indecent words Cesar Alcoba in Paris July 2007; then Undeserving Peter Pueckebaum in February 2009, Manila, all based on invalid/non-existent grounds, questionable in nature and not in conformity with the KOR Manual and the KOR Charter! Rizalism has nothing to do with these exaltations, not a tiny bit! Did Esguerra let it pass, from someone's "say-so" above him? Also, why not take those Undeserving promotions back, now that he is informed they were not DESERVED? Again, his incompetence?
Didn't Esguerra write he doesn't tolerate vulgar/indecent words in the KOR 12 April 2007? He lied, yes! Is that Rizalism? Nope! What Esguerra wrote and did are/were contrary to Good Moral Character!
3. For hiding from the entire KOR Membership the true story about the approx. Euro 5,000 confirmed donated by Mushake sometime 1999/2000 to the KOR. Supreme Commander then was Quiambao! It is Esguerra's duty as incumbent "leader" to now investigate this for purposes of transparency in KOR financial affairs! Can Esguerra investigate Quiambao?
Since the KOR corporation was not organized solely to "collect" donations, but spend them SOLELY to promote the purposes for which the corporation is organized, Quiambao and Esguerra must explain why the approx. Euro 5,000 is NOT in the KOR Books of Accounts, not on KOR records, from 1999/2000 up to Mushake's death early this year 2009! Where is this amount of approx. P340,000.00? Should Quiambao and Esguerra be silent about it? Nope! Quiambao's and Esguerra's silence on this MISSING approx. P340,000.00 is contrary to Good Moral Character!
4. For the persecution and expulsion of honorable Knight Sir Jun Zerrudo from the KOR, based on unfounded, malicious accusations that brought more SHAME upon the entire KOR organization!
Esguerra as incumbent "supreme commander" is "in-charge of the KOR"! Samuel Samuela was tasked to be the "hatchet man"! Did Esguerra and Samuela promote Rizalism by persecuting innocent and honorable Sir Jun Zerrudo and Lazir, but leaving wrongdoers like Quiambao, Esguerra, Paras, Alcoba, etc. out of their investigation, prosecution and expulsion process? Nope! By disciplining the undeserving, Esguerra and Samuela exceeded their legal bounds and in fact, abused their authority beyond the limit! Rizalism is justice and fairness! Ergo, Esguerra's and Samuela's acts in these abusive, one-sided investigations are contrary to Good Moral Character!
5. For falsely and fraudulently calling themselves, or representing themselves to be members of, agents for, the Knights of Rizal organization, after compromising their Good Moral Character themselves in so shameless ways as enumerated above!
Are Quiambao, Esguerra, Samuela FAKE Knights? Lazir, basing his opinion upon RA 646, says yes! Ergo, Quiambao and Esguerra would be violative of Sec 8, RA 646 should any of them EVER attempt to represent the KOR in September 2009, Prague, Czech Republic.
Opinions of other KOR Ladies and Knights, patriotic Filipinos, are WELCOME!
Right now, Deputy Supreme Commander Sir Pablo Trillana III, might be the only legitimate Representative to represent the KOR in the September International Assembly, Prague, Czech Republic!
Will Sir Noubikko and his Prague KOR Chapter stand up to their Rizalian duty to uphold RA 646 by disinviting/disowning Quiambao and Esguerra and putting the name of Sir Pablo Trillana III in their stead? Or will RA 646 be ignored/sidelined, quid-pro-quo, perhaps in exchange for someone's KGOR promotion?
The Dirty Game plan: Find someone who will do the work, but steal the credit from that person, while dangling a sash/medal/title/position, if you can't wiggle out of it! KCR or KGOR will do?
Felino Paras, The SHAME OF EUROPE, masterfully did this in Paris, France July 2007! He found someone to do most of the work organizing the Paris International Assembly, then got his BENELUX boys promoted to KGOR! That's where some (valid!) complaints about KOR/Esguerra awarding the wrong persons, UNDESERVING is the word, came from! Imagine, Paris organized the International Assembly and those outside France got the KGORs!???
Esguerra claims it is the Supreme Council deciding as a body about KGOR promotions!
When Lazir asked to see the Supreme Council deliberations that gave KGOR ranks to Guansing, Plueckebaum, Nollas, Alcoba, Esguerra clammed up and became silent! WHY?
This Paras is same person who reportedly "posed" by a box/container, when he had nothing to do with said container donated to the poor in the Philippines! Masterfully did Paras convince IHQ he "coordinated" the donation of some P2.0 Million goods to the Philippines! Until Sir Francois Ooms came forward, gently informing Lazir that he doesn't want any quarrel, but those P2.0 Million were the fruits of the hard work of his El Filibusterismo Chapter, its officers and members in Brussels, nothing to do with Felino Paras! Doesn't this make Paras a FAKE if not a THIEF?
Lazir's observations in view of the forthcoming Prague International Assembly:
Although Paras, Guansing, Nollas and Alcoba are Benelux "KGORs", heavyweights!, these four NEVER ever organized, nor will they organize an International Assembly in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg! Why? Lazy, incompetent, or both?
History repeats itself!
Fact: Guansing will not organize an International Assembly in the Benelux countries, his home base! Lazy, incompetent, or both?
So, following the footsteps of Paras (not Excellence, NOT the footsteps of the Great Malayan!), this Undeserving KGOR found a hapless Prague Chapter to be tasked to organize a KOR International Assembly, September 2009!
Wait and watch who will be getting KCRs or KGOR/s in less than two months in the Czech Republic!???
Is this Rizalian? No! Is this Rizalism? No! Or is this corrupt practice? YES! YES! YES!
The Great Malayan was not known for writing flowery words to please the abusive Spaniards! Noli and Fili were destroyed, banned and burned!
Lazir has therefore all the reasons to follow the footsteps of his hero, Dr Jose Rizal! Nothing wrong about that...
Nothing personal! Wrongdoing/Wrongdoers ought to be so identified, that others may know. If it is a spade, call it a spade!
For country and people!
Lone Knight of Rizal who refused a promotion to next higher rank because Esguerra, who reportedly signed his promotion, is UNDESERVING to promote Lazir! The promotion document was signed sometime September 2008, supposed to be awarded last 20 June 2009, Wilhelmsfeld, Germany! Moral Lesson: True Knights do not take orders from a FAKE!
