Law Dean told me he’s willing to petition SC in behalf of these lolos accused of raping minors – Exclusive By Raïssa Robles –
Senator Juan Ponce Enrile has been granted bail despite the fact that he is accused of a capital crime – plunder – that is supposed to be non-bailable.
Enrile’s bail has caused an uproar.
Harvard law graduate Oscar Franklin Tan wrote a highly provocative column entitled – Would you grant bail if it was not Enrile?
Likewise, Fr. Ranhilio Aquino, Dean of the San Beda Graduate School of Law, wrote: “I wonder: Had bail been granted a 91-year old farmer charged with a crime punishable by reclusion perpetua, would there have been strenuous objections? So, it seems that the protest is directed not really at the justness of the decision, but because it is Enrile involved. “
I’m not a lawyer, just an observer. So’ I’d like to suggest, let’s test the premises of both Atty. Tan and Fr. Rannie with actual cases.
