Justice For Vizconde’s

After almost two decades, the Supreme court has finally decided:

The Supreme Court en banc, voting 7-4-4 (7 in favor, 4 dissent, 4 no part) has acquitted Hubert Jeffrey Webb, Antonio Lejano, Michael Gatchalian, Hospicio Fernandez, Miguel Rodriguez, Peter Estrada and Gerardo Biong for failure of the prosecution to prove their guilt beyond reasonable doubt.

They were ordered released from detention unless held for another lawful cause or unless they have other cases to warrant their continued detention.

Associate Justice Roberto Abad penned the majority decision. He was joined by Associate Justices Conchita Carpio-Morales, Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin, Jose Perez, Jose Mendoza, and Maria Lourdes Sereno.

Dissenting were Associate Justice Martin Villarama, Chief Justice Renato Corona, Associate Justices Teresita de Castro and Arturo Brion.

Associate Justices who abstained were:

  • Antonio Carpio (because he testified during the hearings at the Regional Trial Court);
  • Mariano del Castillo – (because one of the accused is a client of the law firm of his wife);
  • Presbitero Velasco – (close relation to a party);
  • Antonio Nachura – (who signed as former Solicitor-General before his appointment to the court).

Major grounds for acquittal:

1) Quality of witness – Jessica Alfaro was a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) asset, not really an eye witness. At first, she told the NBI she would bring in a witness to the commission of the crime, but when she couldn’t do so, she said she would play the role of eye witness.
2) Suspicious details in some testimonies;
3) Quality of testimony (inherent inconsistencies);
4) Supposed corroborations which are unreliable.

I was in total shock! Im sad for Mr. Lauro Vizconde, because all these years,JUSTICE had not been served. On the other hand, if Webb and company really aren’t guilty, 15 years have been robbed to them.

The questions in my mind:

1. If it weren’t Webb and company, who did this? Obviously, they are still at large. What have been the PNP doing?

2. So what happens to Jessica Alfaro, the eye witness, now? Will she be charged for all these lies?

3. Why is the Supreme Court always slow in making decisions? 15 years is 15 years.

4 And, will the Vizconde ever find justice?

Kung sino man ang may kagagawan nito, MAKONSENSYA naman sana.

JUSTICE FOR VIZCONDE’S Estrellita Vizconde, 47, sustained 13 stab wounds; Carmela, 18, had 17 wounds and had been raped before she was killed; and Jennifer, 7, had 19 wounds.

Let’s not forget…

    BACK IN THE 90’S BEFORE THE 9/11 HAPPENED, ALMOST EVERYBODY THAT TRAVELLED FROM THE PHILLIPINES TO THE US OR VICE VERSA KNOWS YOU CAN ALWAYS FAKE YOUR IMMIGRATION ARRIVAL /DEPARTURE STAMP…..HELL…YOU CAN EVEN HAVE AN ARRIVAL STAMP 2 YEARS AFTER YOU HAVE ARRIVED AND SAY, I ONLY ARRIVED YESTERDAY. THIS WAS COMMON KNOWLEDGE.

    I DON’T KNOW WHY THE MEDIA BOUGHT THE FACT THAT HUBERT WAS IN AMERICA. THE “DISNEYLAND VIDEO”….IT WAS TAKEN JULY 3……THE CRIME OCCURED JUNE 29….WHAT DOES THE VIDEO PROVE????? IT ONLY TAKES 14 HOURS TO FLY TO THE US. …….

    FORGET JESSICA ALFARO’S TESTIMONY……WHAT ABOUT THE MAIDS????? AND WHY THEM AND SPECIFICALLY THEM??????? YOU JUST PICK OUT THOSE SEVEN NAMES OUT OF THE BLUE????

    I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE A WHOLE FAMILY WOULD DEFEND THEIR SIBLING AND HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SAY THAT HUBERT WAS NOT THERE WHEN A KID GOT STABBED TO DEATH 19 TIMES????

    TO THE WEBBS….YOU’RE EVIDENCE OF TIMELINES OF HUBERT BEING IN THE US DOES NOT CLICK SPECIALLY TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO TRAVELS A LOT BACK THEN AND KNOWS YOU CAN DELAY AND FAKE YOUR ARRIVAL STAMPS….HERE OR IN THE US……DI LANG KAYO ANG MAY PERA NOON NA NAKAKAPAG TRAVEL…..

    I HAVE A COUSIN WHO WAS AN IMMIGRANT, THAT STAYED IN THE PHILIPPINES FOR 5 YEARS AND WENT BACK TO THE STATES….AND HAD A STAMP ON HER PASPORT SAYING THAT SHE WAS IN THE PHILIPPINES FOR ONLY 3 WEEKS.

    AND YOU BEING A SENATOR AT THAT TIME….’CMON…….THAT’S WHY YOU HAD TO TAKE HUBERT RIGHT AWAY TO THE US AND HAVE SOMEBODY FILM YOU AT DISNEYLAND. PALAMIG MUNA.

    THAT’S WHY JUDGE TOLENTINO NEVER TOOK SOME OF YOUR EVIDENCE BECAUSE SHE ALSO KNEW THESE WERE FAKES. SHE KNEW ALL THIS!!!!!

    BUT ANYWAY…YOU KNOW THE TRUTH WEBBS……..SOMEBODY WILL BURN FOR THIS EVENTUALLY…………

    I DO NOT CARE ABOUT JESSICA ANYMORE FAKE OR NOT…..YOU GUYS SHOULD CONCENTRATE ABOUT THE TESTIMONY OF THE MAIDS.

    I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE THE MEDIA SWALLOWED UP THIS IDEA ABOUT HUBERT BEING IN THE STATES WITH HIS PASSPORT STAMPS….’CMON GUYS…….

    Did the prosecutor verify or obtain copy of Webb’s DMV test?
