RE: Your Coverage of the Philippine Presidential Visit to San Jose The Editor San Jose Mercury News San Jose, California, Dear Editor: Presumably your distinguished newspaper will cover the visit to the Great City of San Jose of Philippine President Benigno "Noynoy" Simeon Cojuangco-Aquino, III, which visit is slated for Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, at the Fairmont Hotel. Should you or your assigned reporter be able to interview His Excellency, President Noynoy Aquino, would you like to bring to his attention this article that we published today? The hyperlink is: President Noynoy Aquino Visits the City Where One of the Biggest Fil-Am Scams Happened in August 2002 URL: As the biggest newspaper in San Jose and in the Silicon Valley, the Mercury News extensively reported on the looting of the Northside Community Center by Ben Menor, et al, in 2002. Your esteemed newspaper published also accounts of the civil and criminal cases brought against Mr. Menor by the City of San Jose and the Santa Clara County District Attorney. Would you believe that some of the national executive officers (NEOs) of the National Federation of Filipino-American Associations (NaFFAA) wanted Ben Menor to head the Host Committee for the Philippine presidential visit to San Jose? The NaFFAA NEOs wanted to give Mr. Menor a chance for redemption. It was fortunate that the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco did not allow the NaFFAA NEOs to control the Host Committee. Nevertheless, Mr. Menor would again be the NaFFAA National Convention chairman on Nov. 19-21, 2010, in San Francisco, CA. We are filing a complaint against the NaFFAA NEOs with the United States Attorney of the Department of Justice and with the Criminal Prosecution Division of the Internal Revenue Service for violations of the "Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act" and for tax evasion before the IRS. We will keep you posted on the developments, as perhaps the Department of Justice and/or the IRS may subpoena your office for some records about the Menorgate-NaFFAAgate scandals in your possession. Thank you very much for the attention and assistance, Very respectfully yours, Bobby M. Reyes Editor (626) 825-0628 BCC: NaFFAA E-lists Filipino Diplomats Filipino-American Community Leaders
