Let me just put this here: Imelda Marcos endorsing Mayor Sanchez for clemency.
The Imeldific was requesting for executive clemency for Sanchez and asked the president to consider the GCTA for the granting of executive clemency. Mrs. Marcos did not do the heinous crime of rape and murder. She is just requesting for executive clemency in behalf of Sanchez. That does not make her an evil person. GMA granted executive clemency to a convicted plunderer. That does not make GMA an evil person. GMA executed it. Imelda merely requested for it. It is not a crime to request for executive clemency just as it is not a crime to grant executive clemency. Granting executive clemency is within the powers vested upon a president.
Moreover, Marcos granted executive clemency to convicted felon, BS Aquino II. Does that make President Marcos an evil person?
