Via philstar.comWe’ve seen so little development in key cases over the years, like the Ampatuan massacre and this plunder case against the former president. By acting the way Atty.

Who knows? Maybe they’re all allergic to incarceration or something. The point is, this whole blame game can’t keep going on. Revenge politics isn’t going to make this country any better, and this case could very well be the first of many steps towards ending it decisively. they have every right to do so. If they manage to justify their extended stay in hospital arrest for PGMA, then this means that they are somehow able to prove that their treatment of her hasn’t violated her human rights.
Via philstar.comGiven how dismissive PNoy has been of any and all criticisms against his administration, it stands to reason that the minute the U.N. itself reminds him that he’s not perfect, then maybe, just maybe, he can tone down his bravado a little. Or maybe not, but hey, there are worse things that could happen than him not learning a very important lesson yet again.
