The PEP Coalition Has a New Set of Lawyers
The letter below is self-explanatory.
We wish to assure the PPI planholders that there was a proper transition to a new set of lawyers. We are confident that our cause and fight will go on as it would have had under the Ongkiko law firm. As Winnie Bonifacio, one of the Core Members of the Coalition puts it, “We are in good hands.”
The PEP Coalition wishes to extend its heartfelt and deepest thanks to the Ongkiko Manhit Custodio and Acorda Law Firm (spearheaded by Atty. Mario Ongkiko and Atty. Zenaida Ongkiko-Acorda) who had tirelessly given of their time and effort to bring us where we are today. We owe a debt of gratitude to you and will never forget what you have done for the thousands of planholders affected.
We are reproducing the letter of Atty. Zenaida Ongkiko-Acorda below (original signed):

The “PEP Coalition” stands for “Parents Enabling Parents,” a group of parents empowering other parents to stand up for their rights and demand what is legally and morally due them.
The Coalition is committed to assist its members in their quest for justice and to continue its advocacy for good corporate governance.
The PEP Coalition was formed when Pacific Plans, Inc. (PPI) applied for rehabilitation with the Makati Regional Trial Court, and earned a Stay Order allowing it to discontinue payment of tuition fees to holders of traditional, open-ended plans. In lieu of payment, the planholders were forced to accept a patently disadvantageous scheme, which had been designed without their knowledge, and took effect without their approval.
The reaction to this unexpected and unconscionable move was an immediate mobilization of outraged parents, culminating in the First General Assembly held at St Paul Gymnasium in Pasig City, April 25, 2005 attended by some 2,000 disenfranchised and furious plan holders.
SEN. MAR ROXAS’ HELPLINE NUMBERIn a recent radio interview (Feb. 11, 2009), Sen. Mar Roxas offered affected planholders free legal assistance. The PEP Coalition currently has no details on the nature of the legal assistance and the extent but for those interested, kindly call: 0919-6276927
