In the News

The impending pardon of Claudio Teehankee Jr. as well other well-placed, high profile convicted criminals have cast doubt on the justice system here in the Philippines. It was claimed that the victim's family had known about the impending pardon, but they don't seem to and are mourning the lack of justice in allowing a convicted double murderer to be released after only 13 years in prison.

It's nuts. I don't know if we even have a good way to check on the records of the inmates that we have now (something like the kentucky inmate search) so that the ones in power can truly decide who are those criminals that deserve to be granted pardon and those who should rot in jail.
