Forgiving Erap means goodbye plunder cases
Some people in the media are creating a public clamor, although there is none, for convicted former president Erap Estrada to run again for president in the 2016 elections.
Remember that he claims he is a forgiving man. In fact, he claims he has forgiven Chavit Singson, the whistle-blower in his plunder case. Ergo, Erap being president again would not be in the best interest of the Filipinos. What will happen to the plunder cases against his allies: Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Bong Revilla and son Jinggoy Estrada; and the plunder allegations versus Vice President Jojo Binay? All will be forgiven and forgotten?
Pwede ba, iba na lang? Ang dami namang Pinoy na pwedeng-pwede!
