To describe Mayor Joel Brillantes of Monkayo, Compostella Valley, as controversial is to make an understatement.

As the owner of the JB Management Mining Corp. before he became mayor of Monkayo in 2001, he enforced environmental policies covering Mount Diwalwal that angered big mining companies.
The companies apparently felt he was depriving them of the privilege he had enjoyed before he entered politics: big money at the expense of a ravaged environment.
In an interview with a local publication a year before he was murdered, Brillantes said that by issuing a cease-and-desist order he felt that he was able to deal with illegal mining, pollution and the destruction of irrigated lands.
On December 21, 2001, he carried out Municipal Order 96-05 closing gold-processing plants in Diwalwal after he learned that some miners had left 60,000 tons of mine tailings on top of the mountain.
The order angered miners, whose tunnels were closed down, but was welcomed by Monkayo farmers who had protested the pollution of the Naboc River, a vital source of water for the community.
Brillantes also rankled the New People's Army's Merardo Arce Command when he exposed its extortion of Diwalwal miners.
He also made political enemies with whom he had heated exchanges over the issues concerning Mount Diwalwal.
After Brillantes's assassination, the Davao City Police and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-11 were swamped with motives: politics, the NPA threat, personal grudge and Mount Diwalwal.
...
Investigators tried to link Dejito to the NPA, but the communist rebels denied they had Brillantes killed.
...
Brillantes was known to have had a running feud with Barangay Mount Diwata Chairman Franco Tito, in which the two traded charges and countercharges.
...
A break came when the assassin's wife, Fedelina, surfaced and recounted the moments before her husband killed Brillantes and was himself felled by bullets.
...
The next morning Fedelina learned that her husband had killed Brillantes and that he himself was killed by unidentified assailants.
...
The Davao City Prosecutor's Office disagreed and charged Engroba only with conspiracy to murder Brillantes.
...
On January 31, 2005, President Arroyo ordered the inclusion of Jose Nelson "Tata" Sala and his brother, Edgar, on the most wanted list of criminals as the suspected masterminds behind the killing of Brillantes.
...
In his lifetime, Mayor Joel Brillantes of Monkayo, Compostella Valley, made enemies of the influential and the powerful who make a living out of the gold-rush mountain, Diwalwal.

Sun.Star Davao - Brillantes brod banks on slain mayor's legacy

www.sunstar.com.ph [cached]

THE youngest brother of slain Monkayo Mayor Joel "JB" Brillantes is banking on the legacy JB had left to his constituents to propel him to the mayoral seat this coming elections.

In an interview Saturday, 36-year-old Manuel "Jun B" Brillantes Jr., who is seeking Monkayo's top elective post, admitted the good track record and various worthwhile projects his older brother left are a major factor on his chances to be elected as the next mayor.
"Lahat ng ginawa nyang (JB) mabuti sa Monkayo ibalik natin," said Jun B while visiting the mausoleum at the Davao Memorial Park where his brother was laid to rest.
Although he only finished high school, the young Brillantes said he had helped JB establish their gold mining company, the JB Management Mining Corp., considered one of the top 3 mining corporations operating in Diwalwal.
Jun B also has a separate business company and other business interests.
It was learned that he was at first hesitant to run for election, but was convinced by supporters to seek the mayoral post.
Jun B said his only apprehension is the increased security risk he and his family are facing due to his decision to run.
He also expressed fears he may not live up to the expectation of other people.He admitted being always compared to JB, but said he does not mind.
"Idol ko yang kapatid ko na yan.

Brillantes' murder a setup? 10/25/2005 2:00:00 AM

...
IN his lifetime, Mayor Joel Brillantes of Monkayo, Compostella Valley, made enemies of the influential and the powerful who make a living out of the gold-rush mountain, Diwalwal.
Aware of the threats to his life, a consequence of making executive decisions unfavorable to mining operators in Mount Diwalwal, Brillantes surrounded himself with bodyguards.
But one unguarded moment was what his assassins needed to go for the kill.
That opportunity came on June 28, 2003, while Bril­lantes was at the Davao Matina Gallera in Talomo, Davao City.A cockfight buff, he participated in the cock derby to celebrate the feast of Saint Peter with a P2-million pot.
Brillantes arrived at the cockpit around 4 p.m., oblivious to the plot to kill him.He must have thought there was nothing to worry about, knowing there were prominent businessmen and high-ranking officials, including senators, other local government officials, as well as police and military officials, in the packed stadium of about 4,000.
Around 10:45 p.m., Brillantes was walking toward the VIP room of the cockpit when Aniceto Dejeto Sr., standing on a ledge just above the mayor, pulled out a .45-caliber pistol and repeatedly shot him.
...
Brillantes was declared dead on arrival at the Davao Doctors' Hospital, taking two gunshot wounds in the head, one in the right arm and another in the right knee.
His assassin, Dejeto, died from three bullet wounds in the neck and chest, apparently silenced by the same group who hired him to kill Brillantes.
