Crying Babies – Transcript of Lozada-de Venecia wiretapped conversation



The plot thickens in the NBN-ZTE issue.
While the Senate interrogates witnesses in the corruption-laden National Broadband Network project, a video appeared on YouTube supposedly containing the wiretapped conversation between NBN-ZTE “star witness” Jun Lozada and Congressman Joey de Venecia.
The conversation, laced with profanities from both parties, dealt with the supposed bribery in the NBN deal and discussed another potential kickback with regard to the “Chinese embassy thing.”
The Inquirer reported that de Venecia did not deny it was his voice talking about a $130-million kickback allegedly demanded by former Commission on Elections Chairman Benjamin Abalos. He claims it was Abalos who probably masterminded the release of the wiretapped conversation on YouTube.
Listen to the alleged Jun Lozada- Joey de Venecia conversation and read the transcript after the jump.

Sabi niya marami ako kelangang bigyan. Pati yung NEDA. He said the word NEDA ha. P*tangina. For your information pare.

  1. This conversation proves several things, among others: 1) Lozada is real as he had/has been part of the “connections” all along; proving further that he knows a lot of the “dirts under the carpet” being one of “them” 2) wire-tapping is such a nasty thing that there’s no privacy especially to those who are or have been part of the “connections” 3) all of those in the public service are most probably under surveillance (especially those who “know” or are privy to “supposedly private” affairs and that they are practically exposed to a high probability of being blackmailed by those who have the power over this wire-tapping activities

  2. those who believe in these guys are letting themselves be used by future plunderers. the vicious cycle will continue and we will just replace a corrupt president with another corrupt president. everyone jumping in the jun lozada bandwagon are so desperate to kick gloria out that they’ve shunned common sense. lozada’s as crooked as the president he’s trying to overthrow.

  3. If you ask me, I think they’re all guilty and should be put inside a French prison, where they’ll see no light for one whole year, get fed bread and water once a day, and curl up to sleep on the cold cement floor with their own spit, sweat, and excrements.
    On a lighter note, thanks for dropping by my blog, James. I’ll keep reading your blog in the meantime to find other ways of generating income, as you have advised. Thanks for the heads up!

    JUN’S SECOND TO THE LAST STATEMENT, I HEAR:

  5. SEN MIRRIAM IS CORRECT…ALL OF THESE BIG MEDIA & SENATE HEARING OF D ZTE SCANDAL IS NOTHING BUT A QUARREL AMONG THIEVES AND NONE OF THEIR SO CALLED “SEARCH FOR TRUTH AND LOVE OF THE COUNTRY” EH P*INA DIN NILANG LAHAT. SOBRANG KAKAPAL NG MUKHA NILANG LAHAT. SINASABI NA, YANG PANOT NA JOEY AT JUNE NA YAN, WALANG SINASABI YANG MATINO EH.
    DAPAT SA MGA GANYAN, BINABATO PAG NASASALUBONG SA PUBLIC PLACES.

  6. My comments would definitely be a censor candidate, so I will try to be restrictive.
    I not only agree w/W.Ferrer, but i would like to point out, that China with 1.4Billion pipol,with a vast Govt official ratio, control their corruption by executing those that have indulged themselves in any corruption. It is up to each individual to follow their conscience how they can serve our country & not their pockets. The Pres. can always keep changing her cabinet, but that is not the answer. Like Kennedy said, “Ask what u can do for your Country.” As long as Pinoys allow themselves 2 be bought, be corrupted, be greedy there can never be a True supportive Govt for the Country & the Pipol. It is not for PGMA, 2 answer for their sins, she chooses Qualified Pipol for the post, it is up to them to choose to be Honest. I ask all the Pinoys to wake up & check our priorities, our intentions, and our conscience. I ask that we stop BLAMING others, and accept the fact that we are all responsible, and must all change TOGETHER for the future of our country!!

  7. dont know the truth anymore. any psychologist can determine from the face of lozada if he’s telling the whole truth.
    he is a professional liar!

  9. where have i been?!! i just learned of this. i actually asked friends about this and they are all saying last month pa daw to..
    anyway, i am not surprised for any real man who cries like that kuno complete with all the theatrics is a scumbag too.
    you know what, this is all part of a grand political conspiracy. i have a problem with religious people easily judging others talaga…
