Roxas urges Arroyo to pardon Estrada

Monday, September 17, 2007 | posted in , , , , | 0 comments


Senator Manuel “Mar" Roxas II on Monday filed a resolution urging President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to pardon former President Joseph Estrada on “humanitarian grounds."

In Resolution No. 135, Roxas said Estrada, 70, has been detained for more than six years, during which the ousted leader showed “remarkable humility."

Roxas said Estrada “is entitled to live the rest of his life quietly and in peace with members of his family."

The Sandiganbayan special division on September 12 found Estrada guilty of plunder and sentenced him to reclusion perpetua, or imprisonment of up to 40 years.

Roxas filed his resolution even as Estrada’s camp ruled out pardon as an option for the deposed President.
