Philippines: 11 Pardons

President Arroyo, apparently without fear of a sensational press or get-tough-on-crime critics - has granted executive clemency to 11 convicts. Among those enjoying the benefits of the official acts of mercy are an individual serving a life sentence for kidnapping (in 1998), another guilty of murder (in 1992) and another guilty of rape (1989). See story here.
