MANILA, Philippines—Pampanga Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo may have found himself in deeper trouble following an early morning TV interview about his ballooning net worth and P63.7-million beachfront property in the United States.Clips of his Tuesday interview with GMA 7’s “Unang Hirit” were uploaded to the video-sharing website YouTube, triggering nasty comments—many of them apparently not fit for newspaper publication—from angry Web users.
One viewer described the lawmaker as “the world’s dum… criminal.”
“(Mikey) sucks at defending himself. If he is in court, he’ll be (cited) for contempt for utter stu…,” another commented.
Another viewer said Mikey “hanged himself on national TV” with the way he explained how his net worth jumped from P5 million in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) in 2002 to P99 million last year.
“Take note of (his) facial expressions and the tone of his voice. Talagang sinu. . . (He’s really a li…),” one viewer said.
“Another stu… son of a corrupt politician. This is exactly what happens when you have a big f_ _ _ing ego to go on air to show everyone how much assets you try to hide,” said another. “Mikey, isa kang … (you’re st…)!”

comment made by Rex, blog reader :
He further displays his ignorance when he said that his SALN is “self-explanatory”. FYI It only explains one thing: confusion. When he said his lawyer can explain it further, my nerves would like to explode. For God sake Mikey show some respect on the intelligence of the Filipino People, or to the ordinary govt employee the least. Listen to your Professor Monsod, Mikey. It is your SALN, not your lawyers’. Don’t take it so lightly just because you are the son of the President and has the mechanism to control systems. Govt employees work on their SALN with their sweat and blood. They treat it as a almost a sacred document to keep their commitment on transparency and that they abide by the rules of RA 6713 or Code of Ethics for Govt Officials and Employees.
I am so annoyed with his chronic lying. When he said “it is a legal way of teaching us how deal our SALN” in response to Prof. Monsod’s insinuation that he is hiding the asset, I immediately doubted if the business or asset was really legal. He was also saying “as other public officials are doing…”. What are they doing, Mikey? As far as my sense of smell can reach, I believe that many of you are lying in their SALN.
His answers became more clumsy and disturbing when Prof. Winnie Monsod probed him on the increase of his income over a short period of years. He mentioned buying and selling of real estate properties in the states as the cause of the increase. Wasn’t that an admission that He indeed he has a business whether it is in a corporation or not.
