Marcos was the worst (2): The SC

By

After the Aug. 21, 1971 Plaza Miranda bombing, President Ferdinand Marcos suspended the writ of habeas corpus. Proclamation No. 889, which allowed the police to make arrests without warrants and to detain the arrested without charges, took effect immediately but was announced to the public only after a few days.

Nitpickers will always find a reason to complain or, more appropriately, bitch about anything!
