Death threats too: Cam claims Balutan aide threatened to bomb her office

  • PCSO board member claimed general manager’s aide threatened to bomb her office
  • She also claimed they have been sending her death threats
  • She vowed to press charges against Balutan and men for the alleged threats

MANILA, Philippines  –  Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) Board Member Sandra Cam accused her superior General Manager Alexander Balutan and his men of sending her death threats — including one where her office would be bombed.

Cam, who went to the Mandaluyong City Police Station on Thursday to file a blotter report, said the latest incident involved one of Balutan’s top aides allegedly threatening to bomb her office.

“Pumasok sila Balutan sa opisina ni Chairman (Jorge Corpuz), ang opisina ko katabi lang ni Chairman at marami siyang alalay na kasama at sinabi ng isang alalay niya, kasi nakunan ng tao ko, ang sinabi eh saan ba dito ang opisina ni Sandra Cam? Pasabugin na natin,” GMA News quoted her as saying. “So very serious ang kanilang ano, kung biro ‘yun hindi ‘yun biro dahil may CCTV ang lahat ng opisina diyan sa PCSO, magsalita ka nang ganyan, binu-bully na nila ako. So ako hindi ko ‘to palagpasin.”

[Balutan and his aides went to the office of Chairman, and my office was just besides his own. He had many men with him and one of them asked where the office of Sandra Cam was because they will blow it up. So their statement was very serious, and if it was a joke it was not funny, and because there are CCTVs in the offices, it can be shown that I’m being bullied by the way they speak. So I won’t let it pass them.]

Aside from this run-in, Cam also claimed that she had been receiving death threats on her cell phone through calls and text messages. Attributing this to Balutan, she vowed to sue him for grave threats.

Cam and Balutan earlier squared off on the PCSO’s multi-million budget for its Christmas party.

Cam said P10 million was spent for the party, while Balutan said they only used P6 million instead of the original P14 million.
