Villar off the hook already?
October 3, 2008 § 2 Comments
Another more disturbing fact–news about the double insertion of Manny Villar has been relegated to the inside pages of major newspapers. Latest update is the filing of charges against Villar before the Ombusman. After that, nothing.
Was there a compromise between Villar’s camp and the camps of Senators Ping Lacson and Jamby Madrigal? Is Lacson backing down, not honoring his vow never to let up against Villar? Is Jamby doing the same thing? There’s nothing happening in the Senate anymore. Has Villar successfully “killed” the story before the Philippine media? Are his media handlers already “spread the good news” among mainstream media editors?
Lacson and Madrigal should continue their crusade if they are really serious about this. Villar should be thoroughly investigated, charged, tried and put to jail. It may spare us from the ignominy of another Gloria wanna-be.
