MANILA, Philippines—Even the strongest fighter has that powerful mother.

Dionisia Pacquiao, mother of eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, has laid down the mother’s gauntlet on the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

“Why are you focusing all your efforts on my son?” Dionisia said angrily on a regional network show. “Why don’t they turn their efforts on those corrupt politicians?”

This followed after the BIR held her son’s bank account in the Philippines after the boxer allegedly evaded tax payments amounting to P2.2 billion.

Dionisia even threatened the BIR that their fate is on God’s hands.

“Their office, be it at the highest floors, will be put down when God casts His anger upon them.”

      That is so creative. LOL.

    Gagong mga TV networks, pinalalabas pa at pinakikita sa madla ang kamangmangan ni Dionesia na hindi nakakatulong sa matalinong pagtalakay ng tax issues ni Pacquiao. Kaya hindi tumataas ang level ng kaalaman ng masa sa pulitika pina pamper ng media ang mga caricatures na katulad ni Dionesia na katawatawa naman at mababaw ang kaalaman!

    Mommy Packy, stick to ballroom dancing. It is not as hazardous to your health.

  • Krissey Mahilig

    inabuso ng television ang mangmang na si aleng dionesia maka pag air lang ng mga nakakatawang eksena galing sa innocenting tao.

  • DontMakeAngry

    This is an unfair ambush interview of the press. They know they will get something out of her.They should give this woman some respect and privacy.

    • pinoy_abno

      Ang press ba ang user/oportunista o baka si Aling D ang gumagamit sa press???? Nagtatanong lang!

      • DontMakeAngry

        Tanong tanong ka pa, alam mo naman ang sagot.

  • DannyGane

    little knowledge is dangerous. tanungin mo mom dionisia, kung alam nya ba na dapat magbayad sya o pacman sa hermes bag na regalo sa kanya. gifts of certain amount is subject to 20percent gift tax. “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW, EXCUSES NO ONE!”. pati yung bahay pinatayo nya na bigay pacman is also subject to tax, also pacman’s mga pa, bros and sis’s houses…

  • Hey_Dudes

    I hope the whole world did not see the televised antics of this dancing queen of Gen San city. It was a shameless display of crudeness and utter ignorance. This is exactly like mother like son act.

  • Yanong_OFW

    bantay ka Mommy sa susunod na araw ikaw naman ang titrahin ng BIR..nagbayad ka naba ng tax sa mga show mo?

  • brutsador

    What a joke , Pacman is using the disaster to gain sympathy for his problems with the BIR. He is in debt because of His vices before and he spent millions for his brother Ruel to run for Congress . Fortunately the People of Gensan rejected His brother .He is a National hero and a Congressman ,therefore he should set a good example by paying his taxes. the Problem with Pacman is the influence of His Gambling Lord and Hoodlum Buddiies , telling him he could get away with his problems with the BIR. Pacman’s financial woes was his own doing. So don’t blame the BIR. He if love’s his Country He should stay away from politics because He is not qualified and just stick to Boxing which He does best.

      Mr. PACQUIAO……pays his taxes like all the rest of .us……the LEAST the BIR could have done is……to give Mr. PACQUIAO…..at least SIXTY DAYS….to go to the IRS…and get a CERTIFIED and TRUE COPY of his payment to the IRS….before CLOSING HIS BANK ACCOUNTS.

      What they did was the EQUIVALENT of a DICTATORSHIP GOVERNMENT making a JUDGEMENT CALL…..WITHOUT DUE PROCESS. Normally..this would happen in a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY.

      And……what about those CORRUPT POLITICIANS who haven’t PAID their TAXES on their ILL GOTTEN GAINS?

      This was like a “PUNCH BELOW THE BELT” for PACQIAO……TOTALLY UNFAIR.

      • Talahib1952

        2 years BIR was asking Pacquiao to submit the IRS certification, isn’t that more than enough DUE PROCESS? From the looks of it, he was ignoring the BIR requirement feeling that he is UNTOUCHABLE. When the BIR moved in to garnish his bank accounts, he was compelled to file a case at the CTA for a restraining order and came out public to gain sympathy for his tax woes.
