The RI is not an above suspicion organization, has failed to properly manage this scandal that shaked the Rotary community in the Philippines by choosing to isolate the true Rotarians who chose to fight the evil, instead they coveedr up the crooks, those who have embezzled money through the inefficient and full of loopholes process called "Matching Grants" or those who entered the Clubs seeking a label making them citizens in good standing during the day, something else during the night, just to name a couple of them.

- Of defrauding Individuals, Rotarians, Clubs and organizations in Australia and elsewhere in the world where the VAP leaders Derek Pyrah and Dave Collins mislead donors to contribute by misrepresenting their actions. An example of this accusation can be seen by clicking here. They instructed donors to deposit money not in a RCT Club controlled bank account but on one they (Collins and treasurer PP Deo Dioscoro) had absolute control, the club having total ignorance of the existence of such account, same for the RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service). Remember, Deo Dioscoro is the manager of the METRO BANK where the accounts were held. This is just an example. If interested you can read more inside this blog. Those like this Rotarian who tried to send money mentioning the name of the Rotary Club of Tagbilaran as recipient the did not make it. No such account existed.
- Of defrauding TRF of thousands of dollars by misrepresenting the use of the MG as follows: Dave Collins did not disclose to the foundation that he was the contractor-builder of all construction projects submitted for financing, instead he claimed that it was a construction company under the name of VALLES CONSTRUCTION in Tagbilaran Bohol that was hired for the job. There isn't such company under this name in the TRADES AND INDUSTRY DEPARTMENT data base in Bohol. Here is the document proving my allegation: Click here to see a mail sent to many with the report attached.
- Most important, the report is here- Once I filled the request for opening an investigation as described above, the President formed an investigative committee to explore the allegations. They agreed with the Collins and PP Dioscoro on a number of meetings for discussion and were ordered to submit to the club the bank accounts “pass books” as they called in the Philippines the saving accounts booklets where all transactions are recorded. (I was wondering why they had not a checking account?). They refused, they disappeared, never attended investigation meetings neither regular meetings.Do you know any innocent behaving this way? If my allegations as submitted to the club AND to the RI were driven by malice due to a personal vendetta or whatever other reason, it would be easy for such powerful people to defeat them right on the start. Instead they felt comfortable under the fugitive’s blanket rather than take the time to explain."
- -The RI and the DG have been informed about the facts long time ago . Their inaction to this matter resulted not only to a "let it go" but encouraged them - the accused- to further accented an already ill and predatory behavior towards the local Rotary community. The RI has read this story here before. Take a look and let me know if this is relevant to the RI or not. If the last can't find any wrong doing, then, they will have to review their policy on members attitude, morals and interpretation of what misbehavior is all about.
