Erap is guilty

I have mixed emotions. I don’t know why. I supported his ouster during that time, but I felt it was a mistake. On the other hand, and as the court confirmed, I believe that he is guilty.

There will be legal measures that I’m sure his lawyers will try to do until this verdict is final and executory. I have some thoughts on what I hope would happen after this:

* I hope that he will not be placed in Muntinlupa. He was the president and if anything bad happens to him, the state will be placed in a shameful situation.

* Being on house arrest is, in my opinion, good enough. Being alone, even in a nice place, and having no regular interaction with the society, is the essence of being in jail.

* I hope that the country will move on after all these.
