QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Former Akbayan Representative Walden Bello, together with leaders of civil society organizations, called to cease the culture of special treatment that operates to favor special interests of select individuals and groups.
In a press conference held at Icon Hotel last August 31, Bello condemned the Supreme Court for breaching the criminal provision of plunder being a non-bailable offense when it granted the release on bail of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile last August 18. The senator is facing plunder and graft charges related to the pork barrel scam.
“This is appalling legal acrobatics,” Walden said. “What Judge Lucas Bersamin is saying is that Enrile is entitled to special treatment. As Justice Marvic Leonen has rightly said in his powerful dissenting opinion, this is selective justice.”
