Mahigit isang buwan nang nakaraan, sa dinami-daming FB page na pinupuntahan ko, lalo na sa official page ni PNoy, palagi ko lang nababasa yang Dondon Lanuza post na OCW on deathrow sa middle-east na humihingi ng tulong sa pamahalaan at prayers. Parang eerie diba? Until recently, after persistent and numerous posting, sinagot na rin siya sa PNoy Page. Basahin mo sa baba.
Ang comment ko lang, eh matagal na pala meron na palang action ng Philippine Government eto eh. Bakit hindi sinasagot agad? Bakit parang nag-ke-create pa ng band-wagon ng sympathisers? Kaya pala-pa-ulit-ulit araw-araw eto nilalagay dito sa Facebook page ni PNoy para PASIKAT ANG ADMINISTRATION NA ETO NA MAY ACTION SILA!
Bakit pa nila sabihin na "A formal letter was written during the previous administration to Prince Mohammad bin Fahd seeking to spare the life of Lanusa." Eh pwede naman nilang sabihin na "A formal letter was written by the Philippine Government to Prince Mohammad bin Fahd seeking to spare the life of Lanusa." Parang hindi yata alam ng Administration Aquino na ang ginusto niyang manahin ay iisang gobyerno lamang.
Mas masahol pa etong ganitong style ng Administration Aquino sa mukha ng politiko na nakalagay sa mga project billboards! Yan ang problema sa mga Elitista, hihintayin pang lumuhod at lumuha sa kaka-hingi ng tulong ang masang bayan bago sagutin at pag-bigyan para ma-establish ang UTANG NA LOOB! Pag si Dondon ang nag-post mahigit isang buwan na araw araw eh hindi nyo sinasagot. Pag si Joji Magno eh sinasagot agad. Sino yan? Influence Peddler?
ON DONDON LANUZA CASE
Noynoy Aquino (P-Noy) [Adm-01]. 17 November 2010.
We just got word from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) that they are closely monitoring the case of Mr. Dondon Lanusa.
From the DFA:
For instance, in the case of Mr. Dondon Lanusa, the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh hired a private defense lawyer to ensure that due process is observed and that Mr. Lanusa is given his day in court.
A formal letter was written during the previous administration to Prince Mohammad bin Fahd seeking to spare the life of Lanusa. The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh is also in constant communication with the victim’s family to convince them to grant forgiveness and settle the private aspect of the case.
Mr. Lanusa was arrested for the death of Mohammad Al-Qahtani on August 10, 2000. The Dammam Grand Court found him guilty of murder and sentenced him to death by beheading last June 10, 2002. However, the implementation of the sentence is suspended until the minor son of the victim, who is now 10 years old, reaches the age of majority.
Note: The DFA and the Philippine Embassy in Riyahd continue to extend assistance to Mr. Lanusa and work for the grant of pardon for him, by his victim's family as well as by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
