Quotes

Aquino asked Congress to review these decrees, as they were created then to favor Marcos cronies. "We are required to follow them: Whoever constructs infrastructure in those areas must be in partnership with the corporation of Mr. Marcos’ friend. Even worse: every time they add even just another short section to the original road, their franchise is extended by thirty years. That is not the end of it: Once the company profited, the development of infrastructure in the area was left unfinished."
In response, President Benigno Aquino III issued a veiled threat to the Supreme Court in a televised address : "We do not want two equal branches of government to go head to head, needing a third branch to step in to intervene. We find it difficult to understand your decision." His allies in Congress have since moved to investigate the Judiciary Development Fund

"The sums paid to the victims indicate that you were willing to exploit the vulnerability of these children for your own sexual gratification, showing no regard for their welfare.
