The Philippine Judiciary is nothing but a foul smelling fish! It sucks and stinks! Why? They sided with Secretary Romulo Neri's petition for the the use of Executive Privilege as grounds so that he may not answer the three controversial questions thrown at him by the Senate.
From the Inquirer:
Did the President follow it [the NBN contract] with you?;
Did the President tell you to prioritize [Chinese firm] ZTE?;
Did the President tell you to approve it?
IS THE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE GROUNDS FOR ONE TO HIDE THE TRUTH BEHIND A CONTROVERSY?
If indeed there were no mischaps behind the ZTE-NBN deal, why was there a need to have such steps to deflect the three straight forward questions?
I was really frustated earlier when I was watching 24 Oras. I think it was an undersecretary of the press. He said that the Malacañang is happy because the Judiciary respects and recognizes the independence of each of the different branches of the government for siding with Sec. Romulo Neri.
Sir, here's my comment to you!
The Supreme Court failed to respect and recognize the right of the Filipino people to know the truth! This is against one of our basic rights as stipulated in Article III of the Philippine Constitution otherwise known as the Bill of Rights.
Gosh! It seems that being a lawyer is the only way for my words to be heard!
