Bam on Imelda’s conviction: ‘Now Marcoses can’t deny they stole from us’
Senator Bam Aquino on Friday lauded the Sandiganbayan for its decision to convict former First Lady Imelda Marcos on graft charges.
It’s proof, according to the nephew of former President Corazon Aquino and former Sen. Ninoy Aquino, that the Marcoses plundered the country’s coffers.
“Sa wakas, hindi na puwedeng itanggi na nagnakaw ang mga Marcos mula sa taumbayan,” Aquino said in a statement.
“Nahatulan sila at pinatalsik noong People Power Revolution, at ngayon naman, nahatulan na sa korte,” he said.
“Despite the slow grind, we hope this can be the beginning of our country’s move towards justice,” Aquino said.
“The acknowledgment of the truth about our history and the assurance of justice for a nation robbed of its riches and potential will finally allow us to move on,” he said.
