SC nullification of EO creating Truth Commission a clear proof; Aquino not serious in going after Gloria – KMU
The Supreme Court’s nullification of the executive order creating the Truth Commission proves one thing: the Aquino regime is not serious in going after former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for her crimes against the Filipino people.
We have to recall that investigating Arroyo over accusations of corruption, electoral cheating and other crimes to the Filipino people is one of the major campaign promises made by Pres. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and that his regime touted the EO creating the Truth Commission as a major move by the new government.
The fact that this EO, which the regime describes as very important in its statements to the media, is now being junked by the Supreme Court for being unconstitutional prods us to ask: Was it faulty by design and was it programmed to fail?
We cannot help but think that the Aquino regime is sabotaging efforts to attain truth, accountability and justice over Arroyo’s numerous grave crimes against the people.
The decision of the SC puts an exclamation point to our numerous reservations towards the Truth Commission. Its appointed head, former Chief Justice Hilario Davide, Jr., is a loyal stooge of former President Arroyo. It confines itself to investigating major accusations of graft and corruption, excluding Arroyo’s other serious crimes against the Filipino people such as human rights violations. It faces serious legal obstacles in summoning witnesses and obtaining crucial evidence.
It is now a commonly-held belief that former President Arroyo committed far more numerous and grave crimes than former President Joseph Estrada, yet it only took three months into Arroyo’s term to imprison former President Estrada. It is now almost six months into Aquino’s term yet Arroyo remains free.
Supporters of the regime like to claim that it was another “People Power” uprising in the 2010 elections which brought Aquino to power – yet the Aquino regime has repeatedly squandered its mandate to go after Arroyo.
This SC decision, coming at the heels of reports of very high approval ratings of President Aquino, will surely cause the plummeting of the president’s approval ratings – which are bound to plummet even more should he fail to do something decisive in the immediate future in punishing Arroyo for her crimes to the people. #
