Who disappeared Vice-President Jejomar Binay’s cases from the Sandiganbayan website?
It’s very strange.
Ordinarily, case resolutions of the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan are easy to load and download from the website.
It is one of the things I like about the website.
However, no matter how I try – and I’ve tried it dozens of times on different devices – whenever I try to load Vice-President Jejomar Binay’s two case resolutions, this is the message I get on my screen:
Please see for yourself, whether you get the same message.
First, go to the Sandiganbayan website – http://sb.judiciary.gov.ph/
And click on Decisions/Resolutions – http://sb.judiciary.gov.ph/decision.php
On the left window “Please Select type” – select “Resolutions”
On the right window “Please select year” – highlight 2011
Then click on “Show”.
You will come to this page with the following URL – http://sb.judiciary.gov.ph/decision.php?docutype=RESOLUTIONS&year=2011&show=Show
Now this is what is very strange.
Click on all the other case resolutions and the PDFs will all easily upload and you can read the resolutions.
Now click on the two case resolutions referring to Binay’s cases –
And you will get the same messge:
Did someone do this intentionally? So the public cannot read Sandiganbayan’s resolutions on VP Binay?
Or is this an honest glitch in the system?
Actually, I wasn’t the one who noticed this first.
A reader, who asked not to be named, e-mailed me about it and asked me if I could download the case resolutions for him.
I couldn’t. No matter how many times I tried.
Can readers please try?
Then post here whether you succeeded or not.
