Plunderer Pardoned!


Found guilty of plunder, this deposed president was pardoned by the incumbent, only three days after he applied for clemency.

Joseph Ejercito Estrada, detained (or billeted) in a luxurious estate for six years, sentenced to a couple of life terms by the courts and yet to see the insides of a prison cell, was freed by her successor, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

This is a mad mad world.

I pity the millions of poor citizens in one of Asia's poorest countries.

Consistent with my call for an end to Burma's violence, I now join a nonviolent opposition to the pardon, on behalf of the staring citizens of the Philippines.

Justice for the poorest of the poor!
