Inexplicable ruling

12:55 AM August 24, 2015

OUR JUSTICE system will be hard put to explain to the aging and sick political prisoners, grieving rights victims, ordinary toiling taxpayers, the public at large, and even dirt-poor petty criminals, why the likes of rich, powerful and influential demigods like Juan Ponce Enrile can walk free in the face of plunder charges.

They may exclaim: “Huh? What happened?” Or even “Huh? Again?” Or they might just say in surrender: “Set them all free. Enrile, Gloria Arroyo, Jovito Palparan, plunderers, rights violators, one and all. Anyway, justice is indeed blind.”
