Latest news: Government weapons found in lot near Ampatuan mansion, investigators confirm they belong to government arsenal. Read the story.
The departure of foreign forensic experts from Maguindanao because the places they were staying in kept being visited by alarming armed men, means Justice once more recedes for the victims of the Ampatuan Massacre, while the dark shadow of impunity deepens over the area.
This only shows that what the administration has been doing is posturing as it remains unwilling to enforce the law without fear or favor due to the web of lies and past favors in which the President, her cabinet, and the Ampatuans are tangled.
If anyone had any doubt that ultimately, Justice would become a victim in the continuing crime of this adminsitration being trapped by “utang ng loob,” just as its former and present allies have refused accountability and justice out of transactional ties to the President, no one should doubt anymore that under this administration and its ruling party, impunity will continue to reign supreme.
