Sen. Chiz on SC decision permitting ex-PGMA to travel

On SC decision permitting ex-PGMA to travel...

The decision of the Supreme Court is fair and reasonable.

While I believe that PGMA has to answer for a lot of things, she should be made to do so under the proper constitutional processes. To prevent the possible flight of the former president from facing the accusations against her, the justice department should exercise its mandate by filing appropriate charges in courts and petition for a hold departure order. This is the proper legal action which does not circumvent constitutional and basic rights.

An illegal and unconstitutional circular issued during PGMA's time remains the same even if used against PGMA herself now. If her administration resorted to tactics like this then, something should set the present administration apart from its predecessor by going through and recognizing due and legal processes.
