abusing the webbs
justice secretary leila de lima’s latest statements unequivocally declaring the webbs guilty of lying re the whereabouts of hubert on the night of the vizconde massacre — new evidence daw shows that hubert was in manila and not in the u.s. — smacks of gross injustice to the webb family. and that she’s not here to answer questions and face the webbs — nasa berlin daw for some conference — makes me wonder: was it deliberate, making her statements on the eve of her departure, so as to avoid the firestorm she set off?
and what about, making her statements on the eve of the lapsing of the 20-year statute of limitations on murder cases. all the time i thought that the nbi/doj were looking at other suspects. ang hirap ba masyado? easier to just go back to hubert, lalo na’t lauro vizconde insists he’s guilty? really, what makes de lima’s new witnesses so credible, after 20 years of silence? and again, what about u.s. immigration records that prove hubert arrived in the u.s. when he said he did? nabayaran din lang? LOL
all the talk about how former senator fredddie webb was so influential, he was able to have records doctored to reflect hubert’s departure before the murders, is i think misplaced — if he were so influential, hubert wouldn’t have gone to jail at all.
the one who is really influential, it seems to me now, is lauro vizconde himself who i hear is a board director of ibc 13 and a consultant in pagcor, thanks to gma. ano yon? reward? pampalubag loob? preferential treatment? if he hadn’t gone overseas as ocw baka buhay pa ang asawa niya’t dalawang anak?
and what about the aquino administration? masaya ba sila sa ginawang ito ni leila de lima, refusing to respect the supreme court ruling? or is this part lang of a continuing campaign vs the supreme court? sana hindi. there must be other ways to skin that cat without using the webbs who have suffered enough.
