Philippines: Late Term Concerns

Representative Lorenzo "Erin'' Tañada III is concerned that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo might lean toward granting pardons to the rich and powerful, as her term winds down. Representative Abraham Mitra is also warning Arroyo to use her powers to pardon convicts "judiciously and carefully." The comments are said to be in response to "reports" that a child rapist and former congressman has been released from the New Bilibid Prisons. See story here. Philippines
