I was actually on the bus on the way to office when I saw the verdict of Erap. Actually, I was not aware of any - by chance lng na napanood ko sa Kapuso. :p He had two charges, first is the perjury case and second is plunder. I recounted those debates we had with other friends nung una pa lang yung plunder-plunder na yan. Now, finally the judgement has come. Erap is not guilty in perjury case but he was guilty of plunder. And the verdict reclusion perpetua. the ruling covered the Erap Muslim Youth Foundation, Jose Velarde account and the Boracay Mansion at New Manila. Pero pagkakaalam ko pwede pa nya i-appeal for consideration para gumaan ata yung liabilities niya. Naawa ako bigla. The court allowed him to continue his stay in Tanay resthouse until further notice. While Jinggoy Estrada (Erap's son)and lawyer Eduardo Serapio were acquitted of plunder charges by the Sandiganbayan.
