What is wrong with our judicial system?
As if the 2019 Sandiganbayan decision dismissing the case for recovery of P200 billion in ill-gotten assets against the Marcoses was not jaw-dropping enough, comes now the report that the government has lost another Marcos case.
This makes people wonder: What the hell is wrong with our judicial system? It seems that when it comes to the Marcoses, Philippine courts are more fixated on the hole in the donut rather than what’s on the dough — conveniently finding evidence that does not suffice, instead of finding evidence that suffices.
