Deals with strings attached: Investagrams CEO gets rude awakening on dirty politics in PH

The CEO of a Pinoy stocks trading platform Investagrams found out about the unpleasant ways of wheeling and dealing in the Philippines when he was offered a kickback by a “high level person” he used to admire.

In a now viral Facebook post, JC Bisnar said the person offered to reimburse him “personally” in exchange for setting up partnership with his company.

“Basically gusto ako bigyan ng kickback, labas sa pera ng companya, diretso sa bulsa ko — galawang politiko. Then I realized, that may be the reason how they banked so many government partnerships,” he said.

This was not his first encounter of a fellow businessman with this MO, but to him, it exposed the way things are done in the Philippines.

“In general, kagaguhan talaga systema at galawan dito sa Pinas. Nakakalungkot at dismaya,” Bisnar wrote through Imbang Klase page.

He said real change is unattainable unless the political system is completely overhauled.

“Kung di mo mahal tong bansa, gugustuhin mo talagang umalis nalang eh. It will take more than 2 election cycles before we can have hope,” he went on. “If there’s no brave soul with enough influence and resources who wants to fight all of these shit, then wala. 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, pwedeng walang mangyari dito.”
