a section of an interesting article i found at the PCIJ Blog:


Felix Cabrera Cantal, or “Kuya Peck” as he prefers to be called, is PGRP’s lone senatorial candidate for the May 2007 elections. He claims to be a “political economist” with a doctorate degree in Political Economics from Oxford University. He also says he has honorary PhDs in Arts and Letters degree from Columbia University and Mathematics degree from Harvard University.

He lists the Cantal Group of Business Services as among his Philippine-based businesses, which include the following companies: Cantal Globe Oil Worldwide Exploration and Distribution, Cantal Shipping and Lighterage, Cantal Engineering Metal Builders and General Construction, and Globe Oil Shipping Lines which, he claims, has passenger ships in Indonesia. He also markets rope, textile, apparels, cables and wires from China for distribution to Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

A search at the Securities and Exchange Commission, however, showed that not one of the establishments he mentions as part of his business ventures is registered. In fact, only four corporations are listed under the name Felix C. Cantal, none of which carry business-sounding names: Citizens of the Philippines Movement for Sovereign Rights, Perpetualight Top Service Movement Philippines International, Inc., Youth Monetary Economics and Public Economics Movement Philippines International and Global Movement for Social Economics, Inc.

Cantal also claims to have business interests in other parts of the world. These are the American Globe Oil Exploration which operates in the “North Pole, near Iceland and Greenland, between Russia and Canada.”

In an interview with the PCIJ, Cantal enumerated the various positions he has held over the years. According to him, he was a United Nations officer for sixteen years. He started in 1957 until 1973. He claimed to have been the Internal Director of the United Nations Security Council for two years, Operating Officer of the United Nations General Assembly for two years, editor-in-chief of the United Nations Organ, United Information Division for two years, and director of the International Court of Justice for four years.

In his certificate of candidacy, however, Cantal wrote his birth date as May 18, 1949, which means he was only eight years old when he started working for the United Nations. Either Cantal’ is a genius or this Doctor of Mathematics from Harvard miscalculated his age.

Prof. Winnie Monsod, while reading Cantal’’s curriculum vitae minutes before the taping of Palaban, exclaimed: “This is ridiculous, incredible!””

But she hasn’t read Manila Bulletin’s Crispina Belen interview dated June 13, 2006 where Cantal claimed to have directed “more than 60 full-length movies in Hollywood, nine of them James Bond films (six of them starred in by Sean Connery, and three with Roger Moore) under the name Abdel Sommers,” or the July 17, 2005 interview by the same writer where he claimed to have “landed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being Asia’s Advertising Wizard.”

His showbiz connection doesn’’t end there. He claims to be the owner of Starboard Films Production which, he says, syndicates the Charlie Chaplin movies. “I bought the rights for worldwide distribution from MGM.” The official site of Charlie Chaplin however states that “the worldwide all media distribution rights to (Charlie Chaplin) films, excluding live orchestral screenings of the films, are currently licensed to MK2 in Paris.”

Nut jobs like "Kuya Pek" are recognized by the Comelec, while Ateneo professors like Danton Remoto are not? Stories like this give credence to calls of boycotting the election. They expect us to trust this Comelec with our votes?
