Isang shameless plugging sa pinakabago at makabuluhang proyekto ng aking kaibigan na si Kurokuro

It has been said that Filipinos are a forgetful people because of our tendency to set aside important events of the past. As the headlines change everyday, one important issue gets buried right after the next big issue hits. Most of the stories that make it to the headlines are forgotten just a few years later, even if they really matter to us as a nation.

Have you ever wondered… was anyone ever penalized for the Ozone Tragedy? What really happened to Jonas Burgos? Was the Kuratong Baleleng case a rub-out or a shoot-out? Who really shot Ninoy Aquino?

This October, the GMA Public Affairs Department revisits the past and brings forgotten issues back to the present through its newest late night program: CASE UNCLOSED.

Case Unclosed answer questions of the past that were left behind. The program takes a closer look at scandals and issues of recent history and goes as far back as the events that plagued our nation’s forefathers. Combining docudrama with actual accounts from the people involved, Case Unclosed re-examines political issues, tragedies, and other important events in history to provide never-before-seen perspectives and angles. Under the direction of respected independent filmmakers, Case Unclosed also provides the audience with an intense and heart-pounding viewing experience.

Among the senior journalists of GMA News and Public Affairs, one voice stands out: that of Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines Awardee and Rotary Broadcast Journalist of the Year Kara David. She narrates these past events and further investigates the true stories behind the issues for Case Unclosed.

On its pilot episode this October 2, Kara David revisits Ozone Disco, wherein 161 people, mostly graduating students, died in a tragic fire. More than a dozen years after the disaster, what happened to the case? Reports say that there are still victims that remain unidentified, and that no one went to jail for the tragedy.

Directed by award-winning independent film director Adolf Alix Jr., Kara David retells the case of the Ozone tragedy through the eyes of the victims, witnesses and police investigators, and brings back the unanswered questions that have lingered over the past 12 years.

Re-examine unsolved cases and find answers to longstanding questions in Case Unclosed with Kara David starting this Thursday, October 2, 2008, after the late night newscast Saksi.

Sinasabing ang mga Pilipino ay makakalimuting mga tao. Sa dami ng dumarating na krisis, iskandalo at problema, hindi na natin naalala ang mga isyung dapat nating hinaharap bilang isang bansa. Sa bawat palit ng headline sa diyaryo at telebisyon, natatabunan din ang mga mahahalagang istoryang dapat nating pinagtutuunan ng atensyon, at naiiwan na lang ang mga tanong, at naghihintay ng kasagutan.

Ano na nga ba nangyari sa mga isyung gumulantang noon sa ating bayan?

May naparusahan ba sa Ozone Tragedy? Rub-out ba o shoot-out ang kaso ng Kuratong Baleleng? Ano ba talaga ang nangyari kay Jonas Burgos? Sino ang talagang bumaril kay Ninoy?

Ngayong Oktubre, isang painbagong programa ang ihahandog ng GMA Public Affairs na muling magbabalik sa atin ng mga mahahalagang isyu at iskandalong kinaharap ng ating bayan at susubok na sagutin ang mga tanong na naiwan sa ating nakaraan: ang Case Unclosed.

Isasabuhay ng Case Unclosed ang mga mahahalagang pangyayari ng bawat isyung tatalakayin sa pagsasama ng istilo ng docudrama at aktuwal na video at panayam sa mga taong kakabit ng istorya. Sa direksyon ng mga premyadong independent film directors, uungkatin ng Case Unclosed ang mga kuwentong umukit sa ating kasaysayan, mula sa mga trahedya at mga karumal-dumal na krimen hanggang sa mga pulitikal na isyung gumulantang sa madla.

Sa linya ng mga batikang reporters ng GMA News and Public Affairs Department, isang boses ang magkukuwento ng mga tatalakaying istorya ng Case Unclosed: ang multi-awarded journalist na si Kara David, na kamakailan lang ay ginawaran ng prestihiyosong Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines at Broadcast Journalist of the Year ng Rotary Club of Manila.

Sa unang pagtatanghal ng Case Unclosed ngayong Oktubre 2, babalikan ni Kara David ang trahedya sa Ozone, kung saan 161 katao, na karamihan ay mga graduating students, ang binawian ng buhay dahil sa sunog sa Ozone Disco noong Marso 18, 1996.

Matapos ang labindalawang taon mula nang mangyari ang sunog, may mga bangkay pa rin daw na hanggang ngayo’y hindi pa nakikilala, at ang mga sangkot sa kaso, hindi raw nakulong. Ano nga ba ang nangyari sa kaso? Kumusta na ang mga biktima at pamilya ng mga namatay sa Ozone?

Sa direksyon ng award-winning independent film director na si Adol Alix Jr., muling ipapakita ni Kara David sa Case Unclosed ang kuwento ng Ozone tragedy, at susubuking bigyang linaw ang mga nabiting katanungan sa trahedya.

Muling balikan ang mga tanong ng nakaraan sa Case Unclosed, simula ngayong Huwebes ng hatinggabi, Oktubre 2, 2008 pagkatapos ng Saksi sa GMA-7.

Ms. Kara David,

I hope you can run a story on Lotto Winner whose ticket declared fake by PCSO, it happened in 1996 and it went through a legal battle and now its on appeal at supreme court according to internet news/website “ILOILO …..” This is alarming because PCSO has all the controls of ticket validation they have the say whether the ticket is fake or not. I mean can they alter the bets in the machine after the draw? They know very well their machines, how it works and maybe how it won’t function.
Since 2003 I’ve been a lotto regular player. I’m afraid to win because of that 1996 event. Imagine you got perfectly the combinations and at the end they’ll say my or your ticket is fake.
