I agree with the stance of the Senate Committee to re-open and investigate the Garci scandal. The people have a substantial interest to know what really happened during the presidential elections. If there were election offenses, let it be put to light and have them answer for the the transgressions. The Garci scandal has put to mockery the most valued right of democracy…the right to vote. Once and for all, tell the Filipino people the truth behind the scandal and put an end to the never ending questions.
The Garci scandal tells the Filipino people that an election offense was committed. However, those in authorities are protecting the perpetrators of the shameful Garci scandal. Why can’t the government do something to prosecute those involved in the Garci scandal? That would include the President de facto…and most probably, never de jure.
