UPDATE: stats for revisiting hubert webb spiked like mad, through the ceiling, the day he was acquitted. which is good. people are googling and reading up on the case. read, too, katrina’s piece on pinky and press ethics. i love pinky webb. what a class act. (krissy leaky, take note.)
i cheered 10 years ago when hubert webb et al were found guilty of the vizconde massacre by the paranaque regional trial court. i cheered yesterday when hubert webb et al were acquitted by the supreme court.
i hate to admit it but yes all through the 90s it was easy to be swept up in the trial by publicity that projected hubert and the gang as rich boys getting away with murder and that clamored for their heads a la jaime jose et al who raped maggie de la riva in 1967 and were electrocuted in 1972.
but there was a lot i didn’t know then that i learned over the years, thanks mostly to winnie monsod who kept track of the case and never faltered in her belief that hubert was innocent. i also didn’t learn until recently that alfaro was an nbi asset. and the loss of the semen sample from carmela was just too suspicious…
so it’s back to square one , with just six months to go before it’s too late. i suggest that a million bucks be offered for information re the true killers. surely someone out there knows something s/he’s not telling.
