We can only sigh at GMA”s political astuteness. Convinced that she could no longer hang on to power, she made crucial appointments at the very last minute, including the Chief Justice. Now her investments have paid off. The Court gave her license to have impunity by allowing her to leave.
Who believes her word that she will return? Not too long ago, she also promised that she would not run in the 2004 presidential elections. Well, we know what happened to this promise. She not only broke her word, but also even cheated big time to occupy the presidency. It’s with irony hence that GMA will now seek asylum abroad precisely for the greatest evil that she has committed against the Filipino people: election fraud.
PNOY take heed: you are dealing with a scheming woman. Beware of her assets not just in the Court, but more so those whom you have picked to surround you. GMA is pure evil. Birds of the same feather flock together.
In any case, this much the Concerned Citizens Movement and the Center for International Law can promise: we will pursue evil GMA wherever she may hide. We did it once with Joc-Joc Bolante. And we will do it again.
We will not allow GMA to make a mockery of the very important human right to asylum. It is reserved for those escaping from political persecution and not criminal prosecution. You will see us and will regret that you ever left the country.
