The faces of evil

Two faces in the Philippine Senate were exposed as wearing Satan’s horns and bladed tail this year: FRANKLIN M. DRILON and SONNY ANGARA. Drilon has actually been wearing his Satan custome for quite sometime now. Angara has managed to look cherubic until he conspired with the big man to insert that paragraph into the 2021 General Appropriations Act to render inutile the MOOE for the Forensics Laboratory of the Public Attorney’s Office. Satan’s laughter reverberated in the Halls of the Senate that day.

But if Drilon and Angara entertained the idea that their evil plot would work, they were wrong.

It took President Rodrigo Roa Duterte an equally short paragraph to defang the Liberal Party’s attempt to protect their kind from criminal prosectuion arising from the Dengvaxia wrongful deaths way back in 2016. Good always triumphs over evil. The President achieved that by exercising his veto power over the Drilon-Angara insertion.

With this development, the Public Attorney’s Office can now proceed full speed ahead in the prosecution of the cases. There is no more obstacle to the doctors and forensics experts of the PAO from demonstrating to the Courts how this vaccine procured with criminal haste by the Aquino administration was the direct cause of the deaths of more than a hundred children. As we can see there is no remorse on the part of the Aquino administration. The lead defendant in the cases, former DOH Secretary Janette L. Garin, continues to insist she and the other accused have done nothing wrong.
