Joc-joc bolante Vigil

October 27, 2008 § 1 Comment

NEWS UPDATE: Joc-Joc Bolante failed to board the Northwest Airline flight 71 today. US Immigration says the former undersecretary is still in their custody. He’s expected to arrive Manila 8pm on October 31, 2008.

just help me figure this thing out…

justice secretary raul gonzales says, Joc-joc bolante can’t be arrested because there’s no pending warrant for his arrest. the senate, for its part, says the same thing. bolante is not anymore a government official. he’s considered as a ‘fugitive” from the law, if former senator magsaysay jr. is to be believed, basing on their investigation. the ombusman also said, they are still trying to figure out what case to file against bolante.

question–why is bolante to be turned over to the bureau of immigration and deportation and subsequently to the national bureau of investigation? likewise, i thought bolante is now “on his own”. why is there an official letter coming from the government’s corporate legal counsel reportedly standing as his representative to the supreme court?

bolante enjoys no immunity. he’s not a government official to have escorts. he did’nt violate any immigration law and as gonzales is to be believed, he’s not even a criminal. so, what’s the nbi arresting team for?

again, the palace is playing another word play.
