Philippine Women's University/JASMS Takeover: Is There An Attempt to Influence Public Opinion?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

You may have been following the PWU / JASMS vs. STI issue, which has seen coverage both in the newspapers and in some blogs. One thing that I've noticed is that another website has actually posted excepts of the minutes of more than one board meeting of Unlad (the Benitez family real estate company that holds the land on which PWU and JASMS are situated). If we assume for a moment that nobody in the Benitez family would leak a copy of the minutes to a website that was writing hit pieces on them, who does that leave?

It leaves the non-Benitez appointed directors of Unlad, who are all appointed by Eusebio Tanco (including the Corporate Secretary who drafted the minutes) and no one else. Taking into account the timing of the leak (during a business negotiation between Tanco and the Benitez family) and the contents (excerpts attempting to paint the Benitez family in a negative light) it is easy to see that this move is simply an attempt to influence public opinion against the Benitez family, and rush a decision under pressure.

Take that into consideration when weighing the evidence and coming to your own conclusions.
