General Jose Calimlim, head of Subic Freeport Anti-Smuggling Task force further gained respect of the Filipino people when he was interviewed by Cito Beltran in ANC Channel 31.

Calimlim revealed that the Subic Smuggling Syndicate sent more than 3 million pesos to silence him but he refused to sell-out his countrymen.

Even the intervention of Presidential Son, Congressman Mikey Arroyo, did not change his mind in going after the economic saboteurs.

Intelligence report further revealed that the money Calimlim refused was diverted to media practicetioners, which explains why massive attack is being launch against him in the past weeks.

Death threats in various forms also intensified.

To show support to the general, City Councilor Edwin Piano will sponsor a resolution titled: "A Resolution Commending General (Ret) Jose P CALIMLIM, SBMA’s Senior Deputy Administrator for Port Operations and Head of Anti-Smuggling Task Force of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) for outstanding work which effectively blocked smuggling attempts and confiscation of Luxury vehicles worth P4M and highly dutiable electronics equipment worth millions of pesos which had been misdeclared as two used Delica vans last December 2004, and seizure of contrabands like expensive brand watches and fine jewelries studded with diamonds and other gemstones valued at P25M last 5 January 2005.'

This was in addition to a resolution the city council earlier pass expressing full support to the new Chairman, Administrator and the Senior Deputy Administrator.


  • Words are going around SBMA this morning that Calimlim had been terminated. The reason according to the grapevine is that the president did not like him dragging the name of Mikey during the interview. Detractors of Calimlim are convincing the President that Calimlim had maligned the preesidential family.

  • Obviously, he wasn't terminated. In fact, in the interview he defended Mikey Arroyo and they were very grateful for what he said.
