Forensic expert bares Noy’s incompetence, ignorance (A TRIBUNE article)
A respected and well-known forensic expert in the Philippines whose services were tapped by the Department of Health (DoH) to help identify the bodies in typhoon-ravaged Tacloban but had to pull out after being insulted by her counterparts from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), yesterday lashed out at President Aquino, saying his latest pronouncement on the slow body count had only exposed the extent of his incompetence and ignorance.
In her twitter account which had been going viral, forensic expert, Dr. Raquel Fortun, said Aquino’s statement defending the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) for its slow and low “Yolanda” casualty count, had only exposed the President’s gross incompetence and ignorance.
In his statement the other day, Aquino was quoted saying that the NDRRMC had been relatively slow in its body count as it had to make sure of its data before releasing any figure of the dead.

Take flight – two words, two meanings
One flees towards the obscure jungle
and hides in the soft trembling darkness
of stubbornly unseeing eyes
wishing, wishing …
While the other one soars high, high, high …
Gazing at the magnifying whiteness
Encompassing, revealing …
Then finally, seeing …
Everything is in plain sight
Show yourself …
