i think the verdict was for reclusion perpetua.
so if that is the punishment for the crime that he was found guilty of, then that is what he deserves, no ifs & buts, for justice should be enforced regardless of who ever was charged, that is a sign of a strong nation & people.
but does he have to go through it is another story. being a mayor, senator, & a president of the country do have its privileges. he can be pardoned or his punishment can be commuted, as respect for the position that he once held & of course because of humanitarian reasons, such as sickness or old age.
& besides being found guilty is punishment enough, & his name will forever be associated with his crime & for being caught doing it.
i just pray that this will serve as a warning to all other public servants who abuse their positions of power & authority.
