Imelda Marcos on graft conviction: F*ck you all!!!
We all know it by now, the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan handed out a decision last November 9 finding Imelda Marcos – the other half of the Marcos kleptocracy which plundered the nation’s coffers – guilty of 7 counts of graft and sentenced her to a total of 77 years in prison.
Justice, it seems, has finally been served? Not quite. During the promulgation of the decision, Imelda Marcos nor her lawyer were present. They snubbed it for all intents and purposes. Then on that same night, she partied with other titans of corrupt-to-the-bones Philippine politics to celebrate her daughter’s birthday.
If that doesn’t say “F*ck you!” to the Sandiganbayan, the state prosecutors, Lady Justice, the thousands of victims of abuses during the Martial Law, then I don’t know what is.
Adding insult to injury, or giving another middle finger to the cause of justice and to the intelligence of the Filipino people, Imelda Marcos through her lawyer told the Sandiganbayan that she was too sick to attend the promulgation of the decision! She had so too ill even her lawyer was also sick which is why he was also a no-show.
She even provided the Sandiganbayan with a medical certificate issued by a doctor from no less than the prestigious St Luke’s Medical Center which lists the following illnesses: Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, Hypertension and Atherosclerotic Cardio Vascular Disease, Status Mini Strokes, Moderately Severe Sensorineural Hearing Loss, Chronic Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection, Chronic Recurrent Gastritis and Multiple Colon Polyps, and Recurrent Respiratory Tract Infection.
So there we have it, another “F*ck you, all!!” from Imelda Marcos. If you don’t feel offended, at the very least, by all of these, then there’s something wrong with you. If you think all of these is just fine, then your moral compass is broken. If you think these are all acceptable, you are part of the problem why this country of ours is still in the gutters. Now if you’re going to speak up and take the side of Imeld Marcos, then I’m so not sorry – FUCK YOU!!!
