Philippine presidents have immunity from lawsuits, but critic the PDu30’s greatest critic, Sen. Leila de Lima says that Lascañas testimony is useful in an impeachment complaint. The opposition lawmaker is now in jail on drug charges that are allegedly politically motivated, according to her. She challenges the president’s immunity in a landmark case before the Supreme Court.

[VIDEO]: Arturo “Arthur” Lascañas claims to have killed more or less 200 people in Davao City, supposedly because of his “loyalty” to the President.
Since the president cannot be impeached due to crimes committed in the past during his stint as Davao’s Mayor, Lascañas explains how the administration uses the Davao Death Squad formula for police operations in Manila for the drug war. He claims that it is better in Davao because they get to bury the dead in the Laud Quarry in Davao. Some journalists inspect the area but residents there do not have knowledge regarding Lascañas’ claims. He added that in Manila, they just cremate the supposed extra-judicial killing victims.
Afraid of the Family Curse?
Lascañas confesses in an interview that if he won’t confess before he dies, his family inherits the curse that is upon him. It is hard to believe that he even cares for his family when he can even get his two brothers killed as per his own words in his intention to stay loyal to the president. He claims that he orders to kill them if they fight during a buy-bust operation on illegal drugs.
God Fearing or ICC Package?
Lascañas allegedly sought refuge from members of the Catholic Church shortly after he retired. Then reached out to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to help facilitate his “public confession” of all people. If he is afraid of God, then why go to Trillanes? Is he really for clearing his conscience or for the prize that they would pay to topple the president? How much are we talking here on top of the all-expense paid testimony at the ICC in Netherlands?
Simple Truth about ICC Possible Aftermath
Lascañas should know that PDU30 becomes president because of the rumors about his fierce strategy of solving Davao’s criminality problems. Nevertheless, successful or not, he for sure gets his reward from the Liberal Party that Trillanes and De Lima serve. The truth is, people just don’t care if his testimony is true or not. The majority of Filipinos are at the back of the president because he genuinely works for the good of the country and his people whatever it takes. Besides, a real priest can advise him that he can repent in secrecy – not in public through Trillanes.
