Mrs. Lapid Given Additional Period for the 3rd Time PDF Print E-mail
Sections - MiscellaNEWS
Thursday, 12 July 2012 10:50

 

By JOSEPH G. LARIOSA

C HICAGO (jGLi) – Marissa Tadeo Lapid, wife of Philippine Sen. Lito Lapid, was granted additional time for the third time “to conduct legal research and factual investigation” of the $50,000 bulk smuggling filed against her by the United States government.

 

U. S. District Court Magistrate Judge Peggy A. Leen of Las Vegas, Nevada, vacated her previous order, setting the preliminary hearing last Monday, July 9, at 4 p.m. of the case and resetting the preliminary hearing on Aug. 23, 2012, at 4 p.m. at Courtroom 3B.

 

In her order, Judge Leen said, “[O]nce these investigations have completed, the parties will conduct negotiations that may resolve this case and save judicial resources.

 

“Additionally, denial of this request would result in a miscarriage of justice and would deny parties reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.

“The Court grants this request for continuance on the basis of finding that the ends of justice served by this continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and defendant in a speedy trial and indictment.”

 

FIRST PRELIM SET APRIL 9, 2012

 

T he preliminary hearing was originally set on April 9, 2012. But this was continued to July 9, 2012.

 

Preliminary hearing will determine probable cause.

 

Mrs. Lapid is out on a $500,000 bail secured by a property bond. But she could not leave the Clark County, which covers Las Vegas.

Mrs. Lapid was questioned when she arrived at a U. S. port of entry in Las Vegas airport last Nov. 27, 2010, when she failed to disclose that she was bringing into the U.S. more than $50,000 in U.S. currency and more than 10,000 Philippine pesos ($356.00) in violation of U.S. dollar anti-smuggling law (Title 31, U.S. Code, Sec. 5332). The law calls for a maximum five-year sentence and a fine of $250,000 and criminal forfeiture of the seized money.

 

She was later released and she left for the Philippines.

 

While in the Philippines, Mrs. Lapid was invited back to Las Vegas by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. When she returned to Las Vegas she was charged with bulk smuggling based on a complaint of “probable cause affidavit.”

 

“AM NOT CARRYING MORE THAN $10K”


T he affidavit alleges that on Nov. 27, 2010, after Mrs. Lapid “presented a completed and a signed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form 6059B, she stated she was not carrying currency or monetary instruments over $10,000 in U.S. currency or a foreign currency equivalent.”

When pressed again by CPB Officer Johnson, Lapid admitted she had additional 10,000 Philippine pesos (US$356.00).

 

The affidavit says that when Johnson “unzipped the baggage,” it led to the discovery of two socks containing $10,000, totaling $20,000, and one cloth bag containing an additional $20,000 “concealed beneath the bag lining.”

 

The discovery “represented an additional $40,000 over Lapid’s written and verbal declarations.” When asked what the additional money was for, Mrs. Lapid responded, “I’m sorry ... It’s for my house.”

CPB officers seized the “$50,000 from Lapid in violation of bulk-smuggling regulations and remitted the remaining $439 back to Lapid for humanitarian purposes.” # # #

C HICAGO (jGLi) – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel urged Chicagoans Tuesday (June 12) to observe the 114th Philippine Independence anniversary in the city during the traditional raising of the huge Philippine flag.

 

Emanuel’s message was read for him by Jenny Cisner, chief of the city’s International Relations Protocol’s office, near the Chicago’s city hall at Daley Plaza at the corner of North Clark and West Washington streets.

 

Consul General Leo M. Herrera-Lim read the message of Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino III, who urged Filipinos to “uphold the spirit of hope and confidence that complements the momentum of change in our time. May we remain proud of our heritage and diversity, the foundations that distinguish our beloved Philippines? Inspired by the past, we now commemorate, we move forward to establish a future that accords with our rightful place in the community of nations.”

 

Deputy Consul General Orontes V. Castro read the message of Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F. Del Rosario, who said, “Love for country and deep faith in the Filipino people gave our heroes strength to fight for independence. As we celebrate Independence Day, may their patriotism inspire Filipinos, here and abroad, to become willing partners and dedicated collaborators of the government in attaining sustained growth and development.”

 

Vice Consul Alena Grace S. Borra read the message of Philippine Ambassador to U.S.  Jose L. Cuisia, Jr., who said, “In 1898, the heroes of the revolution stood their ground and fought for the cause of freedom. This sacrifice and the determination to live in a free country gave birth to the first republic in Asia.“The theme of the 114th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine independence, “Kalayaan: Pananagutan ng Bayan para sa Tuwid na Daan,” (Freedom: The Accountability of a Sovereign Nation of Responsible Citizenry) underscores the collective responsibility of all Filipinos, wherever they may be, to preserve and deserve our liberty.

 

“The Filipino-American community has been a source of pride for many Filipinos. Your individual success and collective strength embody a boldness of spirit and a persevering and dedicated heart.

 

“I thank you for your continued commitment to promote the Philippines’ rich heritage and for your unstinting support for the achievement of Philippine development goals.”

 

Several Filipino American community leaders led by Skokie, Illinois, Commissioner Jelly Carandang, Director Eric Salcedo, representing the Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Filipino-American ABC TV Channel 7 producer, Don Villar, who recently passed the bar, also attended the ceremonies.

 

A Philippine cultural presentation followed the &feature=youtu.be" mce_href="/&feature=youtu.be" target="_blank">flag raising at noon at the Daley Plaza. # # #
