on erap’s conviction

Posted: September 13, 2007 in All and Sundry, politics, Rants

after having been convicted for plunder, former president “erap”estrada was caught in an ambush interview with tv reporters where he opined that his conviction was a result of political trial. despite this he said that he understands the judiciary’s decision.

“they are very pressured so much,” he remarked.

i find that statement very funny it almost gave a comic dimension to the tension brought by the news of his conviction. then of course the succeeding news stories about government officials floating this idea of “pardoning” him contributed to the stupidity enveloping the circus that is philippine politics and its idea of “justice.”

what a joke. :-p
