    Pina pa save face si Llamas ni PNoy. The PNP has cancelled the license for the gun and Llamas will surrender it to them, end of story kuno...

    PNP official: License of Llamas' AK-47 rifle revoked - Nation - GMA News Online - Latest Philippine News

    (Updated 4:30 a.m.) The license of the controversial AK-47 assault rifle issued to presidential political adviser Ronald Llamas has been revoked, a police official said Thursday.

    Philippine National Police spokesman Chief Supt. Agrimero Cruz Jr. said the license has been recalled because the gun is a subject of an ongoing investigation.

    Cruz said the gun will be surrendered to the Quezon City Police District anytime Thursday, adding that criminal charges will be filled against four security aides of Llamas.

    While Llamas was out of the country, his aides were caught last week carrying an AK-47 assault rifle registered in his name.

    Earlier reports said Llamas admitted he owned the gun which he acquired after threats to his life.

    An earlier statement of the Office of the Political Adviser, bodyguards Joey Tecson and John Alarcon may have used Llamas' vehicle, where the gun was found, for personal purposes.

    The two were instructed to use the vehicle to go to Llamas' house and secure it during his absence, but the vehicle figured in a road accident.

    According to the OPA, the firearm seen in the video footage taken at the accident scene was registered and covered by a valid license.

    Palace on revocation

    Malacañang later on Thursday took lightly the revocation Llamas' permit to carry his AK-47.

    “Then he can no longer carry (the firearm)," a laughing presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda told reporters at press briefing.

    “Obviously when you revoke a permit to carry, moving forward he cannot be allowed to carry outside the premises (of his house)," he added.

    He believed it will not compromise the security of Llamas, who claimed receiving credible threats to his life.

    For his part, Llamas said: “I agree [with the revocation] because it’s part of the investigation of my two former staff. They revoked it on that basis," he said in a text message to GMA News Online.

    Llamas came under fire when the AK-47 was found under the driver’s seat of his car which got involved in an accident last Friday.

    At the time, he was in Geneva, Switzerland attending the executive meeting of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. — with a report by Amita O. Legaspi/LBG, GMA News

    What a lack of delicadeza given his gov't position.

    Aquino’s man no poster boy for antipiracy drive

    WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? Almost everybody does it—buy pirated CDs—but it doesn’t look right seeing Presidential Adviser Ronald Llamas doing it in Quezon City Monday. DONA POLICAR/BANDERA
    Someone in the Aquino Cabinet, it seems, is into collecting hot stuff.
    More than three months after a high-power assault rifle police discovered in his SUV put him on the spot, Ronald Llamas, presidential adviser on political affairs, may need some more explaining to do.
    This time, for apparently ignoring the government campaign against movie piracy.
    This writer personally witnessed how Llamas bought a stack of pirated DVDs in one of the stalls at Circle C mall on Congressional Avenue, Quezon City, on Monday night.
    With his two barong-clad security aides hovering nearby, Llamas seemed unfazed by the people who recognized him as a Palace insider as he browsed through the illegal merchandise.
    Llamas took his time picking his titles, from 7:30 to 8 p.m. He was accompanied by two women who also bought a few DVDs for themselves.
    P2,000 worth of DVDs
    After paying for the merchandise, he and his companions casually left the stall and headed to the nearest escalator, toting their purchases discreetly in black plastic bags.
    A check with the stall vendor revealed that Llamas bought almost P2,000 worth of DVDs that night.
    “It’s not a big purchase, but it’s Llamas,” the vendor told this writer in Filipino.
    Repeated phone calls and text messages to Llamas on Tuesday remained unanswered at press time.
    No penalty for buyer
    Told of the Llamas sighting, Optical Media Board chairman Ronnie Ricketts was not too happy.
    Ricketts conceded that the government could not do anything about it when someone—even a Palace official—buys pirated DVDs because the country’s antipiracy law imposes no penalty on the customer.
    “There’s no law penalizing those who buy it just for their personal use,” the OMB chairman explained.
    But if “eight or more copies were bought, that is another thing,” he said. “That could mean the buyer was engaging in business himself,” he added.
    A few other shoppers who recognized Llamas, when asked how they felt upon seeing a prominent government official buying pirated DVDs, didn’t hide their disappointment.
    “Now I know why I should not expect our government’s campaign against piracy to make a dent. If a government official has no fear or qualms whatsoever about buying pirated materials, what more the ordinary people?” said Estrella Panti, a regular Circle C shopper.
    “I will not think twice about buying pirated copies anymore considering that a government official like him is doing it. He has the money for it, so do I. But on second thought, I’d rather not,” said another shopper, Ebet de Asis.
    Gun controversy
    “Obviously what he did was illegal and the President might again come to his defense, like what happened when the public found out that he was keeping an assault rifle,” said a man in his 50s who asked not to be named for security reasons.
    In October last year, Llamas came under fire after his Mistubishi Montero, then being used by two of his security aides, figured in an accident on Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City—and yielded a Czech-made CZ-858 Tactical semiautomatic assault rifle in the ensuing police investigation.
    Initial media reports mistakenly described the firearm as an AK-47. The accident happened while Llamas was attending a United Nations conference in Switzerland.
    He later admitted having licenses for three handguns and two long firearms, but maintained that he had strictly instructed his aides not to take the guns outside his house while he was abroad.
    Malacañang also helped Llamas, a shooting range buddy of the President, explain why he had to heavily arm himself, citing the nature of his Palace job.
    Police cleared Llamas of any criminal liability but charged his security escorts with illegal possession of firearms.
    ‘Watch list’
    Ricketts expressed hope that public officials like Llamas would set an example to the public, especially since the Philippine government is striving to be stricken off the international “piracy watch list.”
    “I’m hopeful that my fellow government officials would realize this and set the example themselves. Maybe they don’t realize the consequence when they buy pirated DVDs,” he added.
    In September 2011, a report by the Washington-based Office of the US Trade Representatives (USTR) listed the Philippines as one of the top 29 countries teeming with pirated or counterfeit goods, including DVDs, that are openly hawked in the streets and commercial centers.
    The USTR noted with concern the ineffective enforcement of intellectual property rights in the country. The Philippines was also included on the USTR watch list in 2010. With reports from Bella Cariaso, Norman Bordadora and Inquirer Research

    For a political advisor, this guy doesn't know much about being politically correct.

    Newspaper editor reports presidential adviser buying pirated discs
    January 25, 2012 8:35am

    Despite a government campaign against vendors of pirated music and video discs, a Malacañang adviser has been seen buying pirated movie discs in Quezon City this week.

    Dona Policar, an editor of the Inquirer Bandera newspaper, chanced upon presidential political adviser Ronald Llamas buying pirated DVDs (digital versatile discs) at the Circle C mall last Monday night.

    In her report published Wednesday in the Inquirer, Policar said she "personally witnessed how Llamas bought a stack of pirated DVDs" in one of the stalls at Circle C mall on Congressional Avenue.

    "With his two barong-clad security aides hovering nearby, Llamas seemed unfazed by the people who recognized him as a Palace insider as he browsed through the illegal merchandise.... Llamas took his time picking his titles, from 7:30 to 8 p.m. He was accompanied by two women who also bought a few DVDs for themselves," Policar said in her report.

    Llamas was embroiled in controversy late last year after a high-powered assault rifle was discovered in his SUV after a road accident in Quezon City.

    Llamas is a "kabarilan" – or a buddy of President Benigno Aquino III at the shooting range.

    The Inquirer report quoted Optical Media Board (OMB) chairman Ronnie Ricketts admitting that the government cannot do anything about [those who buy pirated discs]... because the country’s anti-piracy law imposes no penalty on the customer.

    Llamas' purchase came less than a week after OMB teams seized more than P20 million worth of pirated discs during a raid on stalls in Makati City. — LBG/HS, GMA News
